There is no better way to see everything Gilroy has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Hertz rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own ride allows you to go to the sites you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next trip to California even more enjoyable with a Hertz rental car.
Gilroy is a perfect destination when you need to get away from hustle and bustle of a big city. Guests come to explore Gilroy's charming art scene and plenty of interest for history buffs. No matter what you pick to do first, you'll want to see as much of Gilroy as possible while on your road trip. And if you need to see what else is around Gilroy, then get in the driver's seat of your Hertz rental car and see what else is out there.

CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Gilroy is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Gilroy. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Gilroy average 27 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Gilroy getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Gilroy. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". But, 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 triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Gilroy's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Gilroy. If you want to add a bit excitement to your Gilroy trip, you can also drive to Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park and spend a night riding the park's attractions.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
