Rental Terms, Qualifications and Requirements
Please select a topic from the pull down list below

For a full list of credit card (1 or 2) and debit card requirements, please see tables below. 

 

 

For Pay Now bookings, the person in whose name the vehicle is booked MUST be the person whose credit card is used. The person who prepays the booking MUST be the person to whom the vehicle is rented. The renter MUST produce the same credit card when picking up the vehicle that was used for the prepaid booking for identification and security reasons. If the card originally used has expired, been lost/stolen, you must produce the replacement card from the same card issuer. The card must be in your name and the issue/expiry dates should correspond to those of the original card.

Exceptions:

Travel agent bookings where IATA number is present and the travel agent’s credit card is used to pay for the rental; 

Third party bookings through an on-line retailer provided the booking is made in the name of the person who will pick up the vehicle and he/she is qualified accordingly;

Corporate account bookings made with a Corporate Lodge card.

 

At time of pick-up, Hertz locations might require, in addition to a valid driver's licence, also a valid identity card or passport in the name of the credit card holder. 

At the time of rental an authorisation (reserve to take a deposit) of minimum € 200.00 is obtained on your credit card regardless of the rental length. After the authorisation has been received, a second acceptable credit card may be used to pay for additional charges (ancillaries etc.). There must be sufficient credit on your card to cover all charges.
