Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Puerto Vallarta?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Puerto Vallarta. Compact or economy automobiles are ideal 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.

Does Mexico require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in Mexico. You may also buy additional insurance through Hertz, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Puerto Vallarta. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Hertz.

Puerto Vallarta certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Puerto Vallarta.
