I have rented autos on numerous occasions both here and abroad. To date I have never had to deal with such complete inflexibility. I requested to pick up the auto 1.5 hours early so that I could make a meeting in San Francisco. I was told that this was impossible; that I could call around to other locations to see if they would have cars available at this hour. I proceeded to call 3 other locations-one said no', another would not pick up the phone despite multiple attempts, and the third informed me that I would likely be charged > 100 dollars for the same vehicle/contract. I was supposed to be in the City until late (after the locations closed) for work/work meeting. Therefore I asked if I could instead pick up the same car that I had reserved first thing in the morning and just pay as if I had picked it up the afternoon prior as planned. The charge for this (which is ridiculous) would have been > 100$. So I would have the same car less time and pay more for it. Does this make sense to anybody? At this point I requested to cancel the reservation-as has been possible with every other rental to date. I was told that this would cost 100$. In summary, for a completely inflexible location not even considering allowing me to pick up a car 1.5h early or make some sort of compromise, I wasted hours of my morning making phone calls and had to miss an important work meeting to arrive at the Oakland office before the store closed to pick up the car. In the end, after making above sacrifices, I was not even given the car that I reserved. Terrible experience. The additional star is for a front desk trainee who seemed to be the only employee that could at least offer empathy.

The office staff and drivers at this location went out of their way to help us in every single way, they worked with us to make our experience better, and they even drove us back to the place we were staying at the conclusion of the rental.

Can’t say enough good things about this Hertz. We have rented from here several times. Staff is always friendly and cars are always in great shape. On Labor Day weekend they went above and beyond. We showed up 2.5 hours early to pick up our car on the busiest day of the year. They went out of our way to get us a car in a timely manner so we could start our trip. Much appreciated.

The car I reserved was not at the lot when I picked up the car. They give me the next car available and charged me an additional fee. When I inquired about removing the fee no one in the store knew how to remove the fee. The store did not give instructions for returning the car. Additionally, most of the staff were not willing to help me in the store.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best deals on an Oakland Hertz rental car?

CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.

What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Oakland?

Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

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

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Oakland is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Hertz's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.

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

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Oakland. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Oakland average 26 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Oakland vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

In the United States 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, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.

What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?

We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with a full tank. But, 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 fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Oakland has lots 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 Oakland. If you need to add some fun to your Oakland trip, you can also head to Children's Fairyland and spend a day riding the park's attractions.

Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different Hertz. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
