Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on an Ottawa Hertz car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Ottawa?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Ottawa's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Ottawa is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Ottawa?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Ottawa. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Ottawa vacation can choose a higher-end car model 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 a car in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Ottawa. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on 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 vehicle for your trip to Ottawa. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, 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 triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Ottawa's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, however you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Ottawa.
Does Ottawa Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
