Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Wilmington Hertz car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Wilmington?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Wilmington?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Wilmington is 21. Make sure to review Hertz's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Wilmington?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Wilmington. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Wilmington are around 34 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Wilmington trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Wilmington. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should get your car with a full tank. 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Wilmington has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else North Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Wilmington. If you need to add a little excitement to your Wilmington trip, you can also head to Jungle Rapids and enjoy an afternoon riding the park's attractions.
Does Wilmington Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
