Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Oxford is 21. Take time to review Hertz's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Oxford. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Oxford vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Oxford. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Oxford. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return your 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 gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Oxford definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
