Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Cotonou Hertz rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Cotonou?
You'll need 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 Cotonou?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Cotonou is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Hertz's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Cotonou?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cotonou. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Cotonou trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Benin?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Benin. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Cotonou. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book 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 car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Hertz.

Cotonou definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
