What's Ithaca's minimum age to rent a car?

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Ithaca?

Commute times in Ithaca average 34 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions.

What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Ithaca's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, however you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Ithaca.

Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Hertz. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
