What you need to know about car rentals in Tokyo
How do I find the best rates on a Tokyo Hertz rental car?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my vehicle in Tokyo?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Tokyo?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Tokyo is 21. Take time to read through Hertz's policies, as there may be limitations 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 Tokyo?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Tokyo. Economy or compact cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in Japan. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to . Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, 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.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Tokyo?
Tokyo definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Tokyo.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Hertz. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
