That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Providence. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, 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.

You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Providence. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Providence. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with the needle at "F". If you return the 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. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Providence has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Rhode Island has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Providence.
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
