National Car Rental Turin Airport
National Turin Airport
Turin Airport is an Italian international airport handling over three and a half million passengers per year. It consists of just a single terminal building, but has all the facilities required by arriving and departing passengers. Its facilities include many car hire companies that offer very competitive rental rates. National is one of the globally recognized car hire companies at Turin Airport, and they are found in the arrivals area of the terminal. National offers a wide range of quality vehicles for hire.
National Car Hire, at Turin Airport, is open every day of the week. From Sundays to Fridays their services are available between the hours of 08:00 and 23:30, and on Saturdays they are open from 09:00 to 13:00, and again from 14:00 to 19:00. National is a worldwide car rental company that is part of a global strategic alliance with Europcar, and together, these two companies form the world’s largest car rental network. National has over fifty years of experience in the car hire industry, as they began their business in 1947. Over the years National has succeeded to bring about many positive changes in the industry, for example, they helped pioneer the corporate-account business in the 1970’s, and also introduced the first comprehensive frequent-renter program, by the name of Emerald Club, in the later 1980’s. Emerald Club still assists many customers with time and money saving benefits, such as rental counter bypass options and automatic and convenient e-receipts.
Customers can hire a vehicle online, from National’s website at www.nationalcar.com. This website displays all the vehicle categories available at their Turin Airport rental location, as well as pictures and details of example vehicles in each category. There is also plenty of information about National’s rental terms and conditions, and any additional services available. It is recommended to hire your vehicle as early as possible, and to also reserve any additional items of equipment necessary for your journey, such as a baby seat or a booster seat for older children. Most car hire companies also have satellite navigation systems for hire, which are wonderful to have if you will be travelling in unfamiliar territory. Additional items are subject to availability.
All vehicles at National are booked, priced and controlled by car category, therefore customers will be choosing a car category, and not a vehicle by its specific make and model. The details of passenger and luggage capacities for the example vehicles can be used as a general guideline when selecting the correct size of vehicle. Economy vehicles at National are smaller models, ideal for city driving, and are relatively popular because they are light on fuel and come with good rental rates. The Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2 are example vehicles in this category, and they seat up to five passengers. However, they are more suitable for single drivers or couples, as families may find that they don’t have a very large capacity for luggage. They are both manually driven vehicles, with air conditioning and a radio/cassette player.
Slightly larger vehicles can be hired from the categories of Intermediate, Midsize Specialty and Full Size. The VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9 is found in the Intermediate category, while the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 is an example vehicle in the Midsize Specialty category. Both vehicles seat five passengers and store two large and two smaller luggage items. Vehicles in the Full Size category, such as the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2, have an automatic transmission and are four door vehicles. Passengers in need of even more space for luggage may consider one of National’s wagon categories, as they generally contain vehicles with larger luggage capacities. The Fiat Croma Dynamic MJT 1.9 is found in the Intermediate Wagon category, and the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2 is available in the Fullsize Wagon category, with space for up to six luggage pieces.
National has all kinds of vehicles, even those which are considered to be more elegant and stylish, and ideal for more prestigious business events. These are Premium vehicles such as the Mercedes E280 Avangarde 2.8. Larger vehicles from National include the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0, seating up to seven passengers, and the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8, which is a vehicle able to accommodate up to nine people. Both vehicles are manually driven and have space for a few luggage items as well.
To qualify to rent a vehicle from National, at Turin Airport, primary renters should be at least 21 years of age, and have a valid drivers license and major credit card. Renters between the ages of 21 and 24 will pay a higher rental rate due to ‘young drivers insurance’. Younger drivers may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories that contain larger or specialty type vehicles. Major credit cards accepted by car hire companies usually include American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard / MasterCard and Visa. Debit cards and cash are not usually accepted.
Further details and information is available on National’s website, at www.nationalcar.com, or customers can contact them directly at their Turin Airport rental location.
