You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

What is the minimum age to rent a car in Palermo?

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

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Palermo. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride.
