What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in London?
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's London's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in London is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Hertz's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to London?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit London. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their London getaway 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 the United Kingdom?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United Kingdom. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to London. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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 reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to London. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank 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 London?
London definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to 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 drop off your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
