What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Shimane Hertz rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Shimane?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Shimane's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Shimane is 21. Take time to go over Hertz's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Shimane?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Shimane. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book 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 reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Shimane. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank 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?
Shimane certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Shimane?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
