You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Sonoma. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Hertz.
