If you want to see everything Chico has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Hertz. Don't spend your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own car, you can drive wherever you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next trip to California even better with a Hertz car rental.
Chico is a perfect town when you wish a break from busyness of a big city. Many tourists come to enjoy Chico's terrific weather throughout the year. Of course, this city has more going on such as scenery that draws visitors from all over the country. No matter what you decide on first, you'll want to take in as much of Chico as possible while on your road trip. And if you need to mix it up from Chico's easy-going vibes, then get behind the wheel of your Hertz rental car and see what else is out there.
CarRentals.com works with many of the finest businesses in the world. Hertz has over a hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet including some of the most well-known in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz renowned history and thousands of distributors globally, you know you will be in great hands.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Chico is 21. Take time to go over Hertz's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Chico. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Chico getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Chico. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Chico has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Chico.
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Chico, having access to a vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of California, you can leave wherever you want to, without having to wait for the bus or signal for a taxicab.
