What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best prices on a Ballarat Hertz car rental?
We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Ballarat?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Ballarat's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Ballarat is 21. Make sure to check Hertz's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Ballarat?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Ballarat. Economy or compact cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. 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 on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Ballarat vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Ballarat. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
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 can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Ballarat?
Ballarat definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Ballarat.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Ballarat?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
