Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Birmingham Hertz rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make 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 Birmingham?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Birmingham's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham is 21. Take time to check Hertz's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Birmingham?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Birmingham. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Birmingham vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending 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 encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Birmingham has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Alabama has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Birmingham.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Birmingham?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Hertz. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
