What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best deals on a Kyoto Hertz rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make 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 vehicle in Kyoto?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Kyoto?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Kyoto is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Hertz's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Kyoto?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Kyoto. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Kyoto. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Kyoto?
Kyoto definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Kyoto.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
