How can I pay for my car hire with Hertz?

AMEX, Mastercard,  and Visa credit cards are accepted for vehicle payments with Hertz. You can also pay with a Visa or Mastercard debit card. The nominated credit card must have available funds equal to the estimated cost of the rental, plus a security bond in order to secure the booking. Bond amount will vary per location.

How much does Hertz require for security bond and how long will it take to refund?

The security deposit amount will vary based on your chosen car type and pick up location. It is generally a pre-authorised amount of NZD $200.

What is the minimum age to hire a car from Hertz in New Zealand?

Hertz has a minimum age requirement of 21 years old. Drivers aged between 21 and 24 will need to pay a young driver surcharge, which will vary depending on the chosen vehicle.

What type of driver licence does Hertz accept?

To meet Budget’s licence requirements, you’ll need to present a valid driver licence in English. If your licence is printed in another language, you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP).

Does a Hertz hire car include insurance?

Hertz accepts any valid driver licence held for at least 12 months. The licence must be printed in English, otherwise an International Driving Permit (IDP) will be required. Learning permits aren’t accepted under Hertz’s licence requirements.

Do I have to wash the vehicle before returning it to Hertz?

No. There’s no need to wash the vehicle, but you should return it to Hertz in a fair condition to avoid extra fees.

Do I need to refuel before returning the vehicle to Hertz?

Yes. Hertz will charge you at a higher rate per litre to refuel the vehicle if it’s returned with less petrol than it started with.

    Feedback: Excellent service. Great to pick up keys and car at airport. My husband needs a wheel chair so it is great we don’t have to go far to get the car and return. The price is very good too. Thanks
