What you need to know before you go
How do I get an Okayama Hertz rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my car rental in Okayama?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Okayama's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Okayama set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Hertz's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Okayama?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Okayama. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase 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 book your rental for your trip to Okayama. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 rent a car in Okayama?
Okayama definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Okayama Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
