Great vehicle. Hertz has a young fleet of vehicles. The staff was very helpful and the hiring was straightforward. Unfortunately, long wait, as only 2 Hertz employees and many customers.

Most rental car companies provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, find a gas station before returning the car rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
