National Car Rental at Brescia Airport

Brescia Airport is located approximately 20 km from the city of Brescia, and is also nearby the popular lakes of Garda and Iseo. It is a relatively small airport in Italy, with only around 200,000 passengers passing through each year. However, many people like to have their own rented car when visiting Brescia for leisure or business purposes, and therefore there are a number of quality car rental companies at the airport. National Car Hire can be found in the arrivals area of Brescia Airport, and they are a worldwide car hire company. National’s customers enjoy excellent rental rates and a wide selection of vehicles from which to choose. Besides National, Budget, Avis, Alamo, Maggiore, Europcar and Auto Europa are available at Brescia Airport.

National Brescia Airport is open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 09:00 and 12:00, and again from 14:30 to 17:30. However, vehicles can also be reserved in advance, from National’s website at Their website displays all the vehicle categories available at Brescia Airport, as well as pictures of example vehicles. Customers will also be able to see how much space there is within the vehicles for passengers and luggage. The indicated capacities should be used as a general guideline only, as all vehicles vary slightly according to their manufacture. At National, all cars are priced, booked and controlled by car category, and not by the vehicles’ specific makes and models.

Economy vehicles feature a range of National’s smaller sized cars, such as the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. This category is an ideal choice for single drivers, couples or even small families who don’t need much space for luggage. They are nice practical vehicles, good for city driving or shorter road trips. Both vehicles come with a manual transmission and air conditioning. Compact cars are of a similar size to those in the Economy category, although can perhaps be slightly larger. An example vehicle is the Alfa 147 JTD M-Jet Progression 1.6.

Families and business renters will find a good selection of vehicles in the categories of Intermediate, Midsize Specialty and Fullsize. These vehicles can all seat up to five people, and those in the Fullsize category have an automatic transmission. The VW Passat Comfortline 1.9 is an example vehicle in the Intermediate category, the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 is found in the Midsize category, while the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 is available in the Fullsize category. They also have reasonable space for luggage, storing two large suitcases and two smaller luggage pieces. Passengers who need even more space for luggage should consider one of National’s wagon/estate vehicles. The Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2 in the Fullsize Wagon category, in particular, has plenty of extra space. There is also the Fiat Croma Dynamic MJT 1.9 in the Intermediate Wagon category, and the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120cv in the Compact Wagon car category.

National offers customers the Minivan and Van categories for larger sized vehicles ideal for families or groups of travellers. They also have good space for luggage. The Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0 seats up to seven passengers, while the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8 can accommodate up to nine passengers. They are both manually driven vehicles with ABS brakes and air conditioning. Certain Premium vehicles can be hired from National as well, such as the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8. This car is perfect for prestigious business events or formal private occasions.

National has over fifty years of experience in the car rental industry, and have over the years widely contributed to the industry. In the 1970’s, National helped to pioneer the corporate-account business, and later in 1987, National introduced the first comprehensive frequent-renter program in the car hire industry. This program is called Emerald Club, and today still offers many customers time and money saving benefits, including counter bypass options and convenient e-receipts. The option of ‘car choice’ allows customers to receive their vehicle without the need for any lengthy paperwork.

National Brescia Airport requires a minimum rental period of 72 hours. Even if your rental is shorter than this period, the full 72 hours of rental will be charged. One-way rentals are possible from National, and this is when you collect your vehicle from one rental location, but returns it to another. It is best to confirm with National if the vehicle you are selecting can be driven to your final destination, for example, minivans are not available for one-way rentals. Customers will need to pay for a full tank of fuel if their rental period is five days or longer, otherwise, the rented car should be returned with a full tank of fuel, or the renter should pay for the missing fuel.

All primary renters at National should have a valid drivers license, and should be at least 21 years of age. Driver’s aged between 21 and 24 may be subject to a ‘young driver fee’, and may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories. A major credit card is required in most cases to pay for the rental. Contact National, at Brescia Airport for further details, or visit National’s website at
