Car Rental Qualifications And Requirements To Look Out For !

A good way to save money is to choose an economical car. The largest automaker may not be the best as it can consume more fuel at much faster rate. So you can choose something that is small, but lets you have a comfortable journey. The best place to book a rental car is online as it allows you to compare prices before you confirm your reservation. Car comparison sites can easily compare prices among all the major car hire suppliers. This can definitely help you save money. While comparing the prices on car comparison sites, you should make sure to read the reviews as well. The price is not the only factor that needs to be compared though.

Hertz has an extensive network of partners and these partners generally provide discounts to their members throughout the year when they rent cars from Hertz. You can get attractive discounts depending on how often you rent. The more you rent, the more discounts you get. Discounts are shown on the board monthly rental. To qualify for a hired car, you must meet the car rental qualifications and requirements. This means you must have a valid national driver's license that has been held for a minimum of 1 year. An international driving permit (IDP) is highly recommended for non-European Union renters. Also, to enjoy better rates, you should have a clean driving record and it helps if you are a frequent customer of the car rental company.

Driver's licenses issued by the People's Republic of China may be accepted provided you present an official Hertz certification form. Hertz China issues this form on Hertz notepaper and incorporates the Hertz China Corporate seal. A scanned copy of your original license will appear on the form. The form is valid until the expiry date of your driver's license. Both the original license and the certification are compulsory to be produced at the time of rental. If you are holding a driver's license issued in Vietnam, you have to present the original license with an authorized translation issued by the Vietnamese Transport Ministry. If both documents are presented at the time of car rental, these licenses are acceptable worldwide. For Northern Ireland and UK customers holding the new photo card driver's license, remember that the photo card and paper counterpart make up the complete driver's license and both must be produced together while renting a vehicle. If you donĂ¢€™t have the new photo card driver's license, you will have to produce a photo id (passport etc.) besides your paper license at the time of rental.

All paper driving licenses and paper counterpart licenses which are laminated will not be accepted as valid licenses as security features are not visible when placed under the ultraviolet lamps at the rental counters. We hope that you enjoy travelling with Hertz
