Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Madrid Hertz rental car at a great rate?

We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But booking ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Madrid?

You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What's Madrid's minimum age to rent a car?

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Madrid is 23. Take time to go over Hertz's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.

What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Madrid?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Madrid. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in Spain?

In Spain you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?

We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Madrid certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Madrid.

Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?

Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
