What you need to know about car rentals in Colombo
How do I get the best prices on a Colombo Hertz car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I get my rental car in Colombo?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Colombo?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Colombo 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 if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Colombo?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Colombo. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Colombo trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Sri Lanka require car insurance?
In Sri Lanka you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Colombo. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book 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 vehicle for your trip to Colombo. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Colombo?
Colombo certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Colombo.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Colombo?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different Hertz. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
