What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Galesburg Hertz rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Galesburg?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Galesburg's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Galesburg is 21. Take time to review Hertz's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Galesburg?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Galesburg. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Galesburg average 26 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Galesburg trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Galesburg. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
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. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Galesburg?
Galesburg's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Galesburg.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different Hertz. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
