What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best prices on a Philadelphia Hertz car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car in Philadelphia?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Philadelphia's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Philadelphia is 21. Make sure to check Hertz's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Philadelphia?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Philadelphia. For bigger cities, like Philadelphia, you may find navigating and parking easier in a compact vehicle. Commute times in Philadelphia average 32 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Philadelphia trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Philadelphia. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 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 Philadelphia. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Hertz.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Philadelphia?
Philadelphia is a large city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to be concerned about your miles if you are planning to see what else Pennsylvania has to offer.
Does Philadelphia Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
