Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Lafayette is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Hertz's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Lafayette?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Lafayette. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Lafayette vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Lafayette. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, 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 gas station before you bring your car back to Hertz.

Lafayette has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Louisiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Lafayette.

Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
