No issues with the car but the location in downtown Cambridge is very difficult to locate and access is limited. I could not find the place and had to ask people. Very, very small office and small sign. You could walk right past and not see. The first Hertz sign I saw was on the 4th floor. No one on the roof top to ask questions either for pickup or return. Bring you own GPS. The vehicles don't have it and I could not interface my phone. They charge extra for a special cord to allow it to work.

The staff was beyond kind and organized when I arrived to pick up my car, the vehicle was clean and rode great, and the return process was seamless. I only put one less star because I paid for a standard car, and think the one I ended up with was compact--still worked fine but I would have preferred one a bit more similar to what was stated when I was originally booked.

Good: This was cheaper than all the other places I looked at Good experience at the pickup and drop off Bad: I thought I lost my key fob at one point. I did not receive enough support to help me out. I was a bit lost and didn't know how to proceed.

The T&C clearly mention Hertz provides third party damage insurance. Until pick-up, where the employee precises : Hertz can provide, but at a charge of 17$/day Rental companies are supposed to include minimum third party insurance by state law.

Reservations with Autoescape are always very professional. For this rental with Hertz: Pick up in Boston was quick and efficient. The agent offered us a car that could contain our 3 suitcases without changing category and claiming an overpayment. Comfortable and powerful car: Ford Fusion. Return of the vehicle to New York also very quickly and final invoice without surprises + immediately sent by email.

The staff member helping me had to redo my check in multiple times from errors on his side when entering my age taking over 25mins. I feel taken advantage of with the additional charges added. When my total came to $143 and I had prepaid $120 - I wasn’t made aware that was in addition to what I had prepaid instead of the new total. With Avis when I added insurance last, it was $9/day, Hertz added up to be +$45/day which I was not told. Also the toll surcharge was more expensive than the tolls themselves. Overall very poor communication and explanation of what he was adding to my bill, I will not rent with Hertz again.

What's the best way to get an inexpensive rental car in Cambridge?

If you are looking for some of the best rates on a car rental, then you are in the right place. To get the most savings when you travel to Cambridge you can do a few things:

  • Compare and contrast the rates for a few suppliers on the type of car you want
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually get the car of your choice and save more
  • Check the fuel and mileage policies. You don't want to be surprised with added costs
  • Decide what car you'll need for your vacation. Don't get more car then you need

Be sure to go through the rental policy before you reserve your vehicle.

What car do you suggest for Cambridge?

With a number of vehicles to select from, it may be tough to decide which vehicle is the best for your holiday. Nevertheless, keep in mind the amount of driving and how many people you're riding with. Our table below can help you reserve which vehicle is the best one for your trip.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Cambridge?

The youngest age to rent a car in most cities, like Cambridge, Boston, is 21. However, there is commonly an added charge for anyone under 25. Make sure you check the rental car company's policy before you book. Additionally, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles.

Does the United States require car insurance?

Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the supplier's policy before you decide.

Do I need to return my car rental with a full tank?

We recommend a "full-to-full" policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge you up to 3X the current prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to the supplier. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Cambridge?

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to make sure it is part of the bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips in advance. Although most car rental providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package those miles can pile up and so can the extra cost. You may need to have unlimited miles if you are imagining some road trips to discover what else is in Boston.
