You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Lafayette.

Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Lafayette. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, 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.
Lafayette's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Lafayette.
