Hertz vehicles cannot be dropped off in Isle of Wight, the Scottish Islands, Jersey or Guernsey.


From 1 January 2021, customers renting in the United Kingdom will not be allowed to drive into any other European country and vice versa.


Driving between the United Kingdom (England, Scotland and Wales) into Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and vice versa are not affected by this change and will still be allowed, subject to the express permission of Hertz and subject to conditions.


If you wish to take a UK registered vehicle into the Republic of Ireland, you are required by law to be in possession of a VE103B certificate which is proof Hertz has permitted the vehicle to travel outside of the United Kingdom.


The VE103B certificate is not required for travelling to Northern Ireland.


Charges for issuing a VE103B are as follows:

Standard Cover (including taxes)

22-28 days

£ 301.73


The cover can only be purchased at time of pick-up.


Should these restrictions be ignored, all insurance (Third Party Liability, CDW, TP, PI, Super Cover), if accepted, shall be null and void. The driver will be held fully responsible in case of accidents and will bear all consequences, including the cost of repatriation of the damaged vehicle.
