Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Columbus Hertz car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Columbus?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Columbus?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Columbus is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Hertz's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Columbus?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Columbus. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Columbus are around 28 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Columbus getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, 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 Columbus. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Columbus. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Columbus's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked out Indiana's capital or explored Indiana's capital.
Does Columbus Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another Hertz. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
