You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Clearwater. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on 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 book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz.
