Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Athens Hertz car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Athens?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Athens's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Athens is 21. Take time to go over Hertz's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Athens?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Athens. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Athens getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Athens. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your car 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 bring it back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Athens definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Athens.
Does Athens Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
