What do I need to bring when I get my car in South Bend?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in South Bend?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in South Bend is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Hertz's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to South Bend?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in South Bend. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. Commute times in South Bend average 27 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their South Bend getaway can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to South Bend. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to South Bend. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, 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?
South Bend has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Indiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in South Bend. If you want to add a little adventure to your South Bend trip, you can also drive to Kennedy Water Park and spend a day riding the park's attractions.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in South Bend?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
