What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best deals on a Portsmouth Hertz car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of time 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 pick up my car rental in Portsmouth?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Portsmouth's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Portsmouth 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 in particular.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Portsmouth?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Portsmouth. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Portsmouth average 44 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Portsmouth trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Portsmouth. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your vehicle for your trip to Portsmouth. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". But, 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 gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Portsmouth?
Portsmouth has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Virginia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Portsmouth.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
