That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Los Gatos. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park.

Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Los Gatos vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Los Gatos. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.
Los Gatos's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Los Gatos.
