That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Boston. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride.

In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Boston has over half a million people, so there should be plenty to do. Unlimited miles allow you to go out downtown or have a night out in downtown Boston worry free.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
