In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

We recommend a full to full 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 find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
