Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best deals on a San Francisco Hertz car rental?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in San Francisco?

You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

What's San Francisco's minimum age to rent a car?

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in San Francisco is 21. Make sure to check Hertz's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to San Francisco?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit San Francisco. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. Commute times in San Francisco average 36 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 choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their San Francisco vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?

You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to San Francisco. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Hertz does require 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 can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. If you return the 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 fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

San Francisco has over half a million people, so there should be plenty to do. Unlimited miles allow you to see what else California has to offer without being concerned about your limits.

Does San Francisco Hertz offer one-way car rentals?

Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
