That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Carcassonne. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives.

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in France. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage.

Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz.
