Frequently asked questions

We try to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my car rental in Shiga?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Shiga's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Shiga is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Shiga?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Shiga. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Japan. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to . Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Shiga. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car 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. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Shiga certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Shiga Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different Hertz. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
