Documentation

 
The easiest way to rent a van with Hertz is to use a credit card for payment. You can also use a debit card but a credit card will also be required upon pick-up as a form of identification, and for a security deposit (repaid when the van is returned).
 
If paying by debit card, another form of photographic I.D. may also be required (such as a passport).
 
The name on the card used should also be the name of the main driver of the van.
 
All van renters should also show their complete valid driver’s license when picking up their van (photographic card and paper document).
 

Cancellation Policy

 
Taking advantage of the Hertz pre-paid online discount means your reservation is subject to a cancellation policy.
 
You can cancel any online Hertz van hire reservation within 7 days of the pickup for free. You will receive a full refund to the credit or debit card used.
 
If you cancel after this time, Hertz will charge a £30 administration fee to the credit or debit card used. You will receive a full refund for any other amount due from the rental cost.
 
Any no-show upon the day of pickup will be charged a £70 administration fee, with any additional amount being refunded to the credit or debit card used.
 

Insurance

 
All Hertz van rentals come complete with insurance, and these costs are included within every quote. These insurances protect you from liability in the event of an accident or theft, though a limited excess will still be applied.
 

  • CDW (Collision Damage Waiver): Reduces your financial liability for damage to the vehicle in an accident where you are deemed at fault. The excess amount varies depending on the vehicle but as an example, for a Ford Transit Connect SWB the excess can be up to £10,580 (without CDW) compared to £900 (with CDW).
  • TP (Theft Protection): Reduces your financial liability for damage to the vehicle due to theft, or damage due to attempted theft or vandalism. The excess amount varies depending on the vehicle but as an example, for a Ford Transit Connect SWB the excess can be up to £10,580 (without TP) compared to £900 (with TP).

 
You can also choose to reduce your excess by selecting an additional coverage.
 

  • Super Cover: This optional Hertz van hire insurance completely waives your excess liability due to either of the reasons covered by the CDW or TP insurance plans. Super Cover rates vary depending on the van you hire but as an example, for a Ford Transit Connect SWB would cost from £15 per day.
  • PI (Personal Insurance): This optional insurance insures against personal accident or death, including ambulance and medical expenses, and theft or damage to personal property within any Hertz rental van. PI rates vary depending on the van you hire but as an example, for a Ford Transit Connect SWB would cost from £7 per day.
