Very happy with the service and the vehicleReviewed 17 Sep. 2022
The pickup was not smooth. No cars were available and they had only a large pick up truck and had to return later that evening. Took over an hour to get a vehicle (long wait) and the only saving grace was the counter staff as they were great but clearly overwhelmed with the lack of availability.Reviewed 12 Sep. 2022

Top tips for renting a car from National at St John's Airport
After arriving at St John's Airport, you can choose to take either public or private transportation. There are public buses, shuttles, and taxis at the airport. Nevertheless, you should book National car rentals at St John's Airport. The airport welcomes many international and domestic travellers, especially during peak tourism seasons from May to September. Instead of waiting around in long queues, why don't you book National car rentals at St John's Airport? There are plenty of affordable cars to choose from, which will save you the money of hailing a taxi or hopping a public bus anytime you want to travel within the city, and it will also save you time. You will also be able to explore top attractions like Torngat Mountain National Park and Codroy Valley at your convenience.
When it's time to return your car, you drive to the rental car lot at the airport, where you pick up the vehicle. National car rentals provide excellent service at your convenience. The only caveat is that you need to return the vehicle within the stipulated business hours. If you return your car after hours, the company will only do a satisfactory check on the next business day. Therefore, you are responsible for the vehicle until the check is done, and you will be liable for any damage to the car before business hours. To avoid such liabilities, plan your schedule so that you can return the vehicle on time.
National car rentals provide additional amenities to give clients the best service. If you're traveling with kids, you can request child safety seats. The St John's Airport car rentals desk also provides mobility devices like hand controls to renters with reduced mobility. Other services that come in handy are the ski racks, if you're traveling with skiing equipment, and the GPS units for easier navigation of the city. All these options are added to the final bill upon returning the vehicle. There is a maximum charge for a 30-day period, and reservations exceeding 30 days have an estimated total cost based on the whole rental period.
As a traveller, you should note that National car rentals at St John's Airport can get busier during particular travel periods. For instance, Labrador, one of the cities served by the airport, experiences an influx of tourists from May to September. During these months, road traffic is normally heavier than usual. On regular occasions, weekends are busier because more people are out and about exploring the beautiful city. So if you're traveling during the popular tourism periods or on weekends, be prepared to take more time navigating to and from the airport.
