Frequently asked questions

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Tampa?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Tampa?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Tampa is 21. Make sure to review Hertz's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Tampa?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Tampa. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Tampa getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest 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. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Tampa?
Tampa has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Tampa. If you want to add even more entertainment on your Tampa getaway, you can check out one of the three theme parks in the region. Embrace your inner child, or take the gang to Adventure Island or Adventure Island Water Park.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Tampa?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Hertz. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
