Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Kamakura Hertz car rental at a great rate?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Kamakura?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Kamakura's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Kamakura is 21. Take time to read through Hertz's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Kamakura?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Kamakura. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Kamakura getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Kamakura. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also 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 car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Kamakura. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Kamakura definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road 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 car at a different Hertz. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
