Mark San Francisco Airport 27 January 2018
Choice of cars, ease of collection / drop off, value and bring back empty. My first choice of car had an issue with the 'on-call' not being registered so I had to change cars.
Anonymous San Francisco - O`Farrell Street 27 October 2017
GMC Terrain vehicle was a poor automobile. Not very responsive or powerful.
Steen San Francisco - O`Farrell Street 22 October 2017
That it is not possible to book a particular model. Wanted Grand Cherokee, got Santa Fe.
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 19 October 2017
SF Airport was very easy to pick up the car and it was ready when we arrived. Child seat wasn’t in the car and I had to install myself.
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 03 October 2017
We were helped very quickly. Ability to choose our car at the pick-up zone. The only qualm was the 30 day max rental period shown on the agreement in spite of the fact that we rented for 63 days. Apparently the company's systems automatically roll the rental over if it goes for more than 30 days, but I think it probably would be a problem if we would be stopped by an officer of the law. Fortunately this did not happen.
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 25 September 2017
The drop off was very time efficient. The car was beautiful and easy to use. The fee for extra drivers and the fee for 'underaged' drivers. Especially the last one because I personally think that 22 year can not be considered underaged anymore.
Luis San Francisco Airport 25 September 2017
The car was new and in perfect conditions and maintenance. The first option that National offers was a different car. When I insist they give me the one I reserved, but there were a kind of vegetal sabia on the front window that was impossible to clean. I used three different products trying to clean it and nothing. My accompaniment never could see the views.

Had a Nissan Rogue, excellent car! Very friendly staff in San Francisco. Thank you!
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 11 September 2017
Easy to get car in short time Didn't get the car I wanted. Could have paid a lot less for a similar model to the one I got. Staff unhelpful on the whole. Cars all had dents and scratches, and exterior dirty. Would not recommend this to anyone. In hindsight would have paid less. Annoyed that I lost money.
Roger San Francisco - O`Farrell Street 09 September 2017
Excellent service at pickup and drop off. Nothing.

Anonymous San Francisco - O`Farrell Street 20 August 2017
Rare to actually get the car model I'd booked. Nice surprise. rental cars booking was easy and a good experience. Drop off in a different location fee seemed extortionate.
Gilbert San Francisco - Convention Centre 12 August 2017
The staff at National are amazing prifessional and curtious The prices at san francisco are a bit inflated in car rentals
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 06 August 2017
very simple and relaxed to deal with. finding the rental car desk at the airport was tough after a 10 hour flight.

Ferdynand San Francisco Airport 12 July 2017
Getting in the car was super quick, I just asked to choose the available car in the row and the data they need is just a driving license. No upgrade at all :-)

Leopoldo San Francisco - Union 07 June 2017
I booked a Jeep Grand Cherokee, North American vehicle, I collected a Nissan Pathfinder, Japanese. Part of my vacation is to drive a local vehicle. It was disappointing.
Sean San Francisco Airport 03 June 2017
No Queue at the counter. Had booked a Jeep Cherokee wish I had got one. Instead got the Durango which wasnt bad at all...

anthony San Francisco - Convention Centre 14 September 2016
very fast to return the car. litterly seconds. we booked a jeep grand cherokee. it was not available. Likewise no similair size SUV was available. we were given a much larger SUV, Ford Expedition. The car had an extra row of seats and was simply to big. This made driving very stressful
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 10 September 2016
clean car. We got upgraded because of my birthday ! Staff really helpfull and we never had a long line to wait to pick up and drop off the car (contrary to other rental compagnies).

The pick up
Keith San Francisco Airport 28 August 2016
I would use National again but was looking forward to the Jeep and got an awful Hyundai Santra. The worst auto gearbox you could imagine. It became a laughing point of the holiday! The spare key was metal roped to the main key, you couldn`t seperate them! Apart from it banging on my leg for 10 days when in the ignition what If I was unfortunate enough to lose the key! The spare would be with it, just ridiculous really.

Anonymous San Francisco Airport 23 August 2016
great car, good value, excellent service at drop off. poor service at pick up. no support at all (which UK drivers need!).
Martijn San Francisco Airport 21 August 2016
Flexibility in finding an available car that more or less met my specification. Quick and no hassle. Would have liked the car I specified (Jeep Grand Cherokee) better than what I got (Ford Explorer), probably. Also, I wasn't thrilled by the limitations I couldn't reset (max speed, sound); 80 Mph is too close to the speed limits in Texas.
Gijsbrecht San Francisco Airport 03 August 2016
I eventually got the car I ordered and it was in great condition. At first, the car wasn't available and a 'similar' car was offered. The cars where not similar at all however (older, less attractive cars). After some complaining, they found the exact model we were looking for after all.
Bart San Francisco Airport 29 July 2016
The GPS was not satelite-navigation but depending on connection to mobile phone systems. As I was driving to a lot of areas with no mobile phone coverage I even had to buy me a map to find my destination.
Jan San Francisco - Convention Centre 27 June 2016
Very satisfied. No hidden charges or fees. We paid exactly as indicated on our booking. Straightforward car pick up and drop off. Convenient drop off with helpful staff. The car we were given had few small scratches. The staff at pick up should have informed us about them.

Expensive upgrade at SFO. Dodge Challenger not as polished or fun to drive as a Mustang or Camaro.
