What you need to know for the road
How do I get an Albany Hertz rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my rental car in Albany?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Albany?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Albany is 21. Make sure to check Hertz's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Albany?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Albany. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Albany vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Albany. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Albany has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Albany. If you need to add some adventure to your Albany trip, you can also head to Huck Finn's Playland and enjoy an afternoon taking on the park's attractions.
Does Albany Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another Hertz. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
