What you need to know for the road

We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Wilmington?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Wilmington?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Wilmington is 21. Make sure to review Hertz's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Wilmington?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Wilmington. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Wilmington average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Wilmington trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Wilmington. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Hertz?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back 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 Wilmington?
Wilmington's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Wilmington.

Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
