We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read 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 car rental in Jersey City?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Jersey City?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Jersey City is 21. Take time to go over Hertz's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Jersey City?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Jersey City. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Jersey City average 37 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Jersey City trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Jersey City. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile topped off. 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Jersey City has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else New Jersey has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Jersey City.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Jersey City?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
