Hertz Car Rentals in Santa Monica: What you need to know

There are so many neighborhoods in Los Angeles that are worth exploring, you will need an automobile to check out everything there is to do in this city. Local buses, while cheap, may not get you close to your destination. Ridesharing can be convenient, but small towns may not have timely service. Plus, the cost of going from here to there can really add up.

If you want convenience at an affordable price, then you have found the right spot. We work with some of the best companies. Hertz has over 100 years of experience and a fleet featuring many of the most well-known in the business, like Nissan and Hyundai. With Hertz's renowned history and thousands of franchises worldwide, you will be well taken care of. In fact, past customers have rated Hertz 5 out of 5 stars for overall satisfaction. They are known to exceed in staff friendliness, car cleanliness, and drop-off time.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

How do I get a Santa Monica Hertz car rental at a great rate?

You are well on your way to locating the best deal on your car rental with us. However, you can remember a few things to keep your next booking affordable:

  • Compare and contrast all the deals available
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually save more and get the car of your choice
  • Check the fuel and mileage policies. You don't want to be surprised with added costs
  • Don't rent more car than you'll need. Normally, the smaller the car, the cheaper the rate

A bit of knowledge can go a long way to lower your rate.

Which forms of identification do I need when I pick up my car rental in Santa Monica?

Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What's 's minimum age to rent a car Santa Monica?

Hertz's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Take time to read through Hertz's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for larger or higher category cars especially.

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

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Santa Monica. If you are having trouble deciding, be sure to go over our table below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
PremiumWhen you feel like you deserve the bestInfiniti, Audi, or similar
SUV or MinivanFamily vacations where you need additional roomHyundai Santa Fe, Nissan Quest, or similar
Compact CarGreat for driving around congested citiesFord Fiesta, Chevrolet Spark, or similar

Does the United States require car insurance?

When driving in Santa Monica or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Hertz requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage through Hertz. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

The major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) will typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Los Angeles.

Do I need to put down a deposit on my Hertz car rental?

Hertz, like many other rental car companies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The amount can vary greatly depending on which vehicle you reserve. Furthermore, make sure there is enough available on your credit card to make the deposit.

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

Hertz and most other rental car companies give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning your car filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Santa Monica?

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you want to make sure it's part of your package. It's useful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most car rental companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may want unlimited miles if you are pondering some road trips to find out what else Los Angeles has to offer, or even the United States.

Are there any road trips I should take from Santa Monica?

Once you've checked out Santa Monica, you'll be happy that you have your own set of wheels. Not sure where to start your trip? Pacific Park can give you or your family an afternoon filled with some fun activities.
