What type of car can I get?
Vehicles that are classified by Hertz as Intermediate Vehicles. A weekly rental through Hertz are usually a compact sedan, like a Hyundai Sonata, or a midsize sedan like a Nissan Altima. Cars depend on local availability.
What payment methods are supported?
You can pay for your rental using a credit or debit card. Prepaid or stored value cards are not accepted. In Massachusetts, debit cards are not accepted. If you pay with a debit card, a soft credit check will be completed at the Hertz branch location.
What credit cards are accepted?
Hertz accepts American Express, Visa, Discover, MasterCard, Carte Blanche, Diners Club, Hertz Charge Card, JCB, Optima Amex, and some debit cards such as those managed by American Express, Visa, Discover, MasterCard.
Cards must have available credit or available funds, for the estimated amount of rental charges and any additional charges that may be incurred.
How much is the deposit on a rental car?
A $200 refundable security deposit is collected when you pick up the car. The deposit is returned when you stop renting the vehicle and return the car. This deposit is meant to serve as a security. If you have outstanding payment on the rental or other charges were incurred during the rental period, the deposit will be used to cover some or the whole amount.
Why is the amount held on my card more than the estimated rental cost?
An authorization is needed based on estimated rental charges. In order to cover incidental charges, such as extra hour charges if the vehicle is returned late, we may require an additional authorization for incremental charges that may be incurred.
Approval for this additional amount cannot be waived. If authorization for the estimated amount can’t be obtained, the rental will be denied. These funds will not be available for your use.
Additional authorizations (holds) are necessary if the vehicle is not returned on the date/time noted on the rental agreement or if the original terms of the rental change result in additional charges.
Can I use another person's card for payment?
Credit and debit cards must be in your name only.
Can I use more than one credit or debit card to pay for my rental?
The rental must be paid on one card only.
Can I use Instant Pay if I get a car with Hertz?

How do I know when and where I can pick up a car for rent?

How do I exchange the car if there’s a problem?
If the vehicle is safely operable, return to the branch location where you picked up your car. When you arrive, a Hertz specialist on site will help you swap cars if there’s an available vehicle. If the vehicle is not safely operable, call Hertz roadside assistance: 1-800-654-5060.
