Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Columbus Hertz car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to check 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 rental car in Columbus?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
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. Take time to check Hertz's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Columbus?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Columbus. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Columbus vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Columbus. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Hertz. Stations close to 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, however you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Columbus.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Columbus?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
