Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on an Akita Hertz car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in Akita?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Akita?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Akita is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Hertz's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Akita?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Akita. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size car or SUV will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Akita getaway can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Japan. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, 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 Akita. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through 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 vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Akita certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Akita Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Hertz. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
