Default Can I really bypass the National rental counter (First time renter)

I thankfully don't have to travel much these days (as in hardly at all), but likely going to have to start just a bit. Got an upcoming trip, and getting all my reservations in place. Local customer recommends using National. So I go online, make my reservation, and get to reading about their Emerald Club. Everything I'm reading says just to reserve a mid-size, pick out my car, and go. I get that concept completely, just find it odd I don't have to shop up anywhere particular and show my CC/DL the first time I rent. Mainly just making sure I don't go half way across the airport to pick up my rental and be in the wrong place.
