What you need to know about car rentals in Kangaroo Island
How do I find the best rates on a Kangaroo Island Hertz rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, getting ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Kangaroo Island?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Kangaroo Island?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Kangaroo Island is 21. Make sure to check Hertz's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Kangaroo Island?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Kangaroo Island. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Kangaroo Island trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Australia. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Kangaroo Island. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with 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 book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Kangaroo Island. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get your automobile topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kangaroo Island?
Kangaroo Island certainly 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 easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Hertz. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
