What you need to know about car rentals in Calais

How do I find the best prices on a Calais Hertz rental car?

We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Calais?

Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Calais's minimum age to rent a car?

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Calais is 21. Take time to go over Hertz's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Calais?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Calais. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Calais vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does France require car insurance?

You are required to have insurance before you rent in France. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Calais. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?

Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?

We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Calais?

Calais certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Calais.

Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Calais?

Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
