What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best prices on a Yosemite National Hertz car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Yosemite National?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Yosemite National?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Yosemite National 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 in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Yosemite National?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Yosemite National. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's belongings and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Yosemite National getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 United States citizen, you can book 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 reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Hertz.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Yosemite National?
Yosemite National certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Yosemite National.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Yosemite National?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different Hertz. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
