If you want to see everything Irvine has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Hertz. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can go wherever you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming getaway to California even better with a Hertz rental car.
With close to a quarter-million people, Irvine is a city that has plenty going on. With everything there is to do, you will want your own car to take in all you can during your getaway. And with your Hertz rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
We work with many of the best companies in the industry. Hertz has over 100 years of car rental experience and a fleet featuring several of the most respected in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz history and thousands of franchises globally, you know you will be in some great hands.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, getting ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Irvine is 21. Take time to check Hertz's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Irvine. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Irvine average 25 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 choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Irvine vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Irvine. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental 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 gas station before you bring your car back to Hertz.
Irvine has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Irvine.
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Irvine, having your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to see more of California, you can leave wherever you want to, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or having to be committed to a bus schedule.
