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

With plenty of neighborhoods in Santa Barbara, such as Santa Ynez, worth exploring, you'll wish for your own car to check out everything there is to do here. Local buses, while inexpensive, may not get you close to where you wanted to go. Ridesharing is convenient, but you may be surprised by which cities they don't serve. Plus, if you plan to go all over Santa Ynez and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want convenience for an affordable rate, then you are in the right place. CarRentals.com works with several of the most dependable car rental businesses. Hertz has over a hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet including several of the most respected in the business, like Nissan and Hyundai. With Hertz's history and thousands of franchises all over the world, you'll be in some great hands.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

How do I get a Santa Ynez Hertz rental car at a great price?

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best deal. However, there are ways to get an even cheaper price on your next booking:

  • Read through the mileage policy to avoid any surprise expenses
  • Reserve your rental as far ahead of time as you can
  • Avoid airport pick-ups or drop-offs if possible; they tend to be more expensive
  • Compare weekly and daily rates; you may save more if you rent the car for longer

A bit of knowledge goes a long way to lower your price.

What should I bring with me when I pick up my car rental in Santa Ynez?

Be sure to present your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

How old do I have to be to rent a car?

Most suppliers, like Hertz, set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. But, there might be an added fee if you are under 25 or for larger or higher category cars in particular. Go over Hertz's to discover what the exact charge will be before you reserve your rental

What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Santa Ynez?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Santa Ynez. If you are having a bit of trouble picking the right car, make sure to look over our chart below. We have compared the most popular categories for you:

Does the U.S.A. require car insurance?

Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy temporary insurance through the Hertz. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Most credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) will cover your car rental. 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 travel to Santa Barbara.

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

Hertz, like many other rental car agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The amount can vary greatly based on which vehicle you book. Furthermore, be sure there is enough funds on your credit card to lay down a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?

Hertz and most other suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest returning your car filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Santa Ynez?

Many suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of your bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip ahead of time. Although most rental car companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, you could face additional cost. You may need unlimited miles if you are planning to find out what else Santa Barbara has to offer, or even the U.S. of A.
