Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Kobe Hertz rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Kobe?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Kobe?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Kobe is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Kobe?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Kobe. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Kobe vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kobe. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Kobe definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Kobe.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Hertz. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
