If you want to see everything Middletown has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Hertz.

Having your own vehicle enables you to go to the attractions you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next getaway to California even more enjoyable with a Hertz car rental.
Middletown is a perfect spot when you wish to get away from busyness of a big city. With everything there is to see, you will need your own vehicle to explore all you can while on your vacation. If you need to mix it up from Middletown's easy-going vibes, then get behind the wheel of your Hertz car rental and see what else is out there.
We work with the top dealers in the world. Hertz has over one hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet featuring many of the most popular in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz storied history and thousands of locations all over the world, you'll be well taken care of.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Middletown is 21. Take time to read through Hertz's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Middletown. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. Commute times in Middletown are close to 30 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Middletown vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Middletown. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require 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 be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Middletown's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Middletown.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
Once you've checked off the must-see sights in Middletown, having your own auto will allow you to see what else California offers. When you are ready to see more of California, you can leave when you want to, without having to wait for the bus or wave down a cab.
