Does Hertz Rent Minivans? (Minivan Rentals Tips)

Welcome to the world of minivans, where the excitement never ends and the memories are always…adequate. My name is Matt, and I’m here to answer the burning question on everyone’s mind: does Hertz have minivan rentals?

Hertz does rent minivans. So you can call or go online and book a minivan at Hertz for your next vacation or road trip.

But before we dive deeper into the nitty-gritty details, let me share a little story with you.

Once upon a time, I decided to surprise my wife and kids with a road trip. Now, I’m a man of many talents, but packing for a family of five is not one of them. So, I decided to get a van rental to make sure we had enough room for all our stuff.

And what better place to get a rental car than my local car rental company location, right? Wrong. I ended up with a full-sized car that barely fit our luggage, let alone our family. So, we had to drive the entire trip with our heads sticking out of the sunroof like a pack of human meerkats (okay it wasn’t quite that bad but my kids argued like animals the whole trip).

It was a real bonding experience, let me tell you (or something like that).

So, I can relate to the struggles of finding the perfect rental vehicle for your family. But fear not, my friends, because I’m here to help.

And, as it turns out, Hertz does in fact have van rentals, so you won’t have to suffer the same fate as my poor, sunburned family. But before you start planning your next road trip, let’s dive into all the juicy details of rentals from Hertz.

What is Hertz?

Ah, Hertz. The rental car company that’s been around since the dawn of time. Or at least, it feels that way. But in all seriousness, Hertz is one of the biggest and most well-known car rental companies in the world.

They’ve been in business for over a century, and in that time, they’ve managed to accumulate a fleet of vehicles that’s sure to please even the pickiest of renters. And with rental locations in virtually every big city (and airport), you are sure to find a Hertz near you.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “But wait, I thought this article was about minivans. What does Hertz have to do with it?” Well, my dear reader, Hertz is where you’ll be able to find the minivan of your dreams.

Or at least, a van that will get you and your family to your destination without any major mishaps.

They have a wide variety of vehicles available at each rental location including minivans, sedans, SUVs, and even luxury cars. So, if you’re feeling fancy, you can get a minivan AND a sports car for your trip (just don’t look at the final price for both cars on your bill).

Why not live a little?

But I digress. The point is, Hertz is a reputable and reliable company that’s been around for a long time. And if you’re in the market for a vehicle rental, they’re definitely worth checking out.

Plus, they have locations all over the world, so you’re bound to find one near you. So, whether you’re planning a road trip across the country or just need a vehicle for the weekend, Hertz has got you covered.

Can you rent a minivan/van from Hertz?

Well, well, well, it looks like we’ve arrived at the million-dollar question. Can you get minivan rentals from Hertz?

The answer, my friends, is a resounding YES. Hertz does, in fact, have minivan rentals at virtually all of their locations.

And before you ask, no, I’m not just making this up to save face from my previous minivan-less road trip story.

Now, you may be wondering what kind of cars Hertz has to offer. Will they have the latest and greatest models? Will they have a variety of makes and models? Are their cars reliable or will they have far too many miles?

The answer to these questions is also a resounding YES. Hertz has a wide variety of vans available for rental, including popular models like the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and more (of course availability will vary depending on the location you are at and which minivans are already rented out).

And they only keep their vehicles for a few years so all of their cars will be almost brand new with only a limited number of miles. So the risk of breakdown, while you are on your road trip or vacation, is extremely low.

Plus since they only have the newest cars, passenger vans, and SUVs you will get the best possible MPG rating on these vehicles as well. The combined MPG (miles per gallon) on their vehicles will be far better than if getting an older vehicle. So you will even save some money on fuel!

So, no matter what your minivan preferences are, Hertz should have something for you.

But before you get too excited, let me remind you that getting a minivan is not all sunshine and rainbows. These vehicles are big and bulky, and they can be a bit of a pain to drive. But, on the bright side, you’ll have plenty of room for all your stuff and your kids won’t be fighting over room in the backseat.

In short, Hertz does rent minivans and they have a good variety of them. So, if you’re in need of a minivan, Hertz should definitely be on your list of options.

Just don’t forget to pack sunscreen if you’re planning on sticking your head out of the sunroof.

How to get a rental car/van from Hertz

So, you’ve decided that renting a minivan from Hertz is the way to go. Great choice, my friend.

Now, the question is, how do you actually go about getting one? Well, have no fear, because I’m here to guide you through the process.

First things first, you’ll want to make a reservation. And what better way to do that than from the comfort of your own home?

Hertz has an easy-to-use website where you can browse their available vehicles, check out rates and make a reservation. If you prefer speaking to someone directly, you can also give them a call and reserve over the phone.

Once you’ve made your reservation, it’s time to pick up your van. Hertz has locations all over the world, so you should have no trouble finding one near you.

Just make sure you have a valid driver’s license, credit card, and proof of insurance, and you’re good to go.

Now, here’s the tricky part. You’ll have to drive the vehicle back to the Hertz location when you’re done. It’s not rocket science, but it can be a bit intimidating if you’re not used to driving a minivan. But don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it.

And if you don’t, just remember, you can always put the kids in the driver’s seat and let them take over. Just kidding, please don’t do that.

In short, getting a car from Hertz is a relatively straightforward process. Reserve the vehicle online or over the phone, pick it up at a location near you, and drive it back when you’re done.

And if you’re feeling overwhelmed, just remember that you’re not alone. We’ve all been there.

Hertz car rental policies

Ah, the fun part. The rental policies. The fine print. The things that make you want to pull your hair out.

But don’t worry, I’ll break it down for you in simple terms so you don’t have to spend hours reading through the Hertz rental agreement.

First things first, you’ll need to be at least 25 years old to rent a car from Hertz. So, if you’re planning on getting one for your teenager’s road trip, you might want to rethink that.

You’ll also need a valid driver’s license, credit card, and proof of insurance. So, make sure you have all of those things in order before you head to the Hertz location.

When it comes to insurance, Hertz does offer rental car insurance, but it’s always a good idea to check with your own insurance company to see what coverage they provide. Often rental companies will seriously overcharge for insurance so it’s better to use your own or even the one that is provided via your credit card.

And finally, when it comes to the rental itself, Hertz does have unlimited mileage for their vans (and almost all vehicles), so you don’t have to worry about how far you drive while renting it. Matter of fact most Enterprise and National locations will have unlimited mileage on their cars as well but it’s always best to ask before getting to the car rental locations.

In short, Hertz’s rental policies aren’t too different from any other rental company. You need to be over 25 and have a valid driver’s license, credit card, and proof of insurance. And, like any other rental, be aware of the mileage limit (if there is one).

So, as long as you keep all these things in mind, you should be good to go.

Just remember, while these policies may seem like a hassle, they’re in place to protect both the renter and the rental company. So, be sure to read the agreement and ask any questions you might have before signing.

And most importantly, have a safe and enjoyable trip!
