Rental Terms, Qualifications and Requirements

Please select a topic from the pull down list below

At the time of rental the driver must present a valid national driver's license which has been held for at least 1 year, provided your national driver's license is in Roman script.


All licenses issued in the European Union are accepted.


All other licenses in Roman Script are accepted for renting, however, an International Driving Permit is highly recommended as you may be required to present it to the authorities.


With all Non-European Union driver's licenses not in Roman Script, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is mandatory.


The IDP translates the national license into various languages and is on its own, without the national license, not acceptable.


Driver's licences issued by the People's Republic of China/ Japan/ Korea may be accepted provided you present an official Hertz Certification form. Hertz China/ Japan/ Korea will issue this form on Hertz notepaper and will incorporate the Hertz China/ Japan/ Korea Corporate seal. A scanned copy of the original licence will appear on the Certification form. The Certification form is valid until the expiry date of the Driver's Licence. Both the Certification and the original licence (with an International Driving Permit strongly recommended by Police authorities in Europe) MUST be produced at the time of rental.


If you hold a Driver's Licence issued in Vietnam, you need to present the original licence together with an authorised translation issued by the Vietnamese Ministry of Transport. If both documents are presented at time of rental these licences are acceptable worldwide.
