In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental.

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it topped off.
