Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Shizuoka?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Shizuoka's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Shizuoka is 21. Make sure to check Hertz's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Shizuoka?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Shizuoka. Economy or compact cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their getaway can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Japan. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Shizuoka certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Shizuoka.
Does Shizuoka Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
