What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Melbourne Hertz rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Melbourne?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Melbourne's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne 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 policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Melbourne?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Melbourne. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Melbourne getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on 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. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Melbourne?
Melbourne has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've had a night out in downtown Melbourne or gone out downtown. If you need to add some fun to your Melbourne trip, you can also drive to Andretti Thrill Park and spend a day riding the park's attractions.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Melbourne?
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 fee when you opt for one-way.
