Tap into the power of the Emerald Club® with the National Car Rental® app. We’ve made the app better and faster than ever with features to help you take control of your hire experience on the go.

Speed & convenience in the palm of your hand

• As an Emerald Club member, profile details are automatically applied so reservations are easier than ever
• Access current and upcoming trip information as well as past hiring history
• Search National locations worldwide and view location details, like hours of operation, addresses and phone numbers – even get arrival directions to the lot
• Contact roadside assistance or 24/7 customer support, and access frequently asked questions.

Tools for the Control Enthusiast

• Rental Tracker℠ provides you with timely and important information about your hire when you need it.
• Manage your Emerald Club profile, view your progress to the next Emerald Club tier and credits toward free hire days.
• Extend your hire directly from the app by simply choosing a new return date.

Virtually everything you need to get on the road

• With Emerald Checkout℠, you can take control to a whole new level at Emerald Aisle locations. Scan a vehicle in the aisle (and view details like mileage and features), confirm your hire options and accelerate your exit process with a Virtual Pass barcode.
• Choose your vehicle from virtually anywhere with Virtual Aisle℠ (available at select locations). Upon arrival, use the app to choose a specific vehicle (with details like mileage and features) and we’ll hold it for 15 minutes so that you can show your Virtual Pass, get the keys and go.
