I had documents to provide enough ID verification to enable me to rent a car from Hertz but nothing satisfied this Hertz employee. He refused to consider anything I had or suggested, nor could he be bothered to confer with his colleague. My children were stranded and I had no way of picking them up without hiring a car, and there was no one available I could call for help, there was just no time. If I could have predicted that this person was going to be so incredibly unhelpful I would've organized back up in advance, I would have had time, but this person let me walk out of the Hertz office in floods of tears over my children being stranded and I could not get to them. I didn't know what to do, and even though this person told me that I would not be able to rent a car anywhere I decided to at least try Enterprise which was a block away. I walked in there, explained the situation and they immediately said that there was no problem whatsoever, that what I had was within policy rules and 10 minutes later I was in an Enterprise rental on my way to pick up my children. I was very late, but I was on my way. I will never ever go near Hertz rental again purely because of the kind of staff they hire. This staff member was incredibly rude, uncaring, and downright lazy and should not be hired to work anywhere, not even cleaning toilets.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

We advise a "full-to-full" policy. You pick up your rental topped off. If you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to the supplier. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Most rental car suppliers offer one-way rentals. It may be easier to drop off your car at a different location. Keep in mind that there is generally an additional fee for choosing a one-way rental. Make sure to go through the supplier's policy to know the total cost.

Most suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of your package that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips in advance. Although most car rental companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package those miles can pile up and so can the extra cost.
