Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Canberra Hertz car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in Canberra?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Canberra's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Canberra is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Hertz's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Canberra?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Canberra. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Canberra trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. 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 larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book 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 book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Canberra definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Canberra.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Canberra?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another Hertz. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
