What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Shimoda Hertz rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Shimoda?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Shimoda's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Shimoda is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Shimoda?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Shimoda. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage.

Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Shimoda. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Shimoda certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Shimoda.

Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
