National Car Rental at Venice
National Venice Airport
Venice Airport has a variety of useful passenger amenities within its terminal building, including a good selection of car hire companies within the arrivals area on the ground floor. National is available at this airport, with a wide range of quality vehicles, excellent customer service and exclusive special offers and discounts on certain rentals. They are open every day of the week from 08:00 to 23:30. Other car hire companies besides National at Venice Airport include Hertz, Avis, Sixt, Budget, Maggiore, Alamo, Easycar and Thrifty.
National has website where customers can make reservations, at www.nationalcar.com. Their website displays pictures of all the example vehicles in each car category, and shows their passenger and luggage capacities. These capacities should be used as a general guideline only, as each vehicle is different according to its manufacturer’s make and model. Vehicles from National are chosen by car category, and not by specific makes and models. There are eleven different car categories available at Venice Airport.
Many individuals enjoy renting from the Economy category, as these vehicles are small, practical and light on fuel. Examples include the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2, and they have space for two adults, two children and one or two items of luggage. Since they don’t have much room for luggage, they are perhaps more suited to city driving than long-distance travels. They are ideal for the single traveler, or for young couples. Compact vehicles have a similar size to the Economy vehicles, and include the Alfa 147 JTD M-Jet Progression 1.6. There are also Compact Wagon vehicles available, which have more space for luggage, including the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120cv.
Larger vehicles seating up to five adults can be found in the categories of Intermediate, Intermediate Wagon, Midsize Specialty, Fullsize and Fullsize Wagon. The Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9 is available in the Intermediate category, and these are great vehicles for a comfortable and pleasant driving experience. Midsize Specialty cars include the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0, and the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 is available in the Fullsize category. All of these categories mentioned can store approximately two large luggage items and two smaller luggage items, although the Fullsize Wagon vehicles can store four large luggage items.
Premium vehicles at National, Venice Airport, are perfect for business travelers who will be attending important functions or business meetings, and even for the private renter who may be needing a more stylish vehicle for a formal occasion. These vehicles have luxurious features, and are more elegant than the usual rented vehicle. An example includes the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8.
Passengers arriving at Venice Airport may also need a larger sized vehicle, and in this case, renting from the Minivan and Van categories would be ideal. Minivans are vehicles which generally seat up to seven people, such as the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0, and vehicles in the Van category can seat up to nine people, such as the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8. These vehicles are great for long distance traveling, and are ideal for the extra large family, or for a group of friends who would like to drive together.
