CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Costa Mesa is 21. Take time to read through Hertz's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Costa Mesa. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Costa Mesa trip can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Costa Mesa. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Costa Mesa. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Costa Mesa has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out 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 Costa Mesa.
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Hertz. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
