Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Douala Hertz rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my rental car in Douala?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Douala's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Douala require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Hertz's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Douala?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Douala. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Douala trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Cameroon?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Cameroon. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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 book Collision Damage Coverage through 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. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Douala certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
