Hertz Excess and Excess Reduction

Accident Excess is the amount you may be liable to pay in the event of an accident. Usually you can reduce this amount, called Accident Excess Reduction (AER, by paying slightly more for the hourly, daily, or monthly rental fee. MAX or AER does not apply to accessories. Your excess amount is noted and accepted by you on the rental form, as part of the agreement between you and Hertz.


How do I pick up my rental from Hertz?

When you make a reservation with Hertz, you will first be invited to select a pick-up location. In Australia, Hertz offices are located in every capital city, airport and major town, and in every state and territory.

To pick up a car, you will need ID, your driver’s licence and a credit card.
Hertz can also deliver vehicles if arrangements are made more than 24 hours prior to the pick-up time, or you can arrange to be picked up and driven to the closest Hertz centre to collect your car. Pick-up is only available within 15 minutes drive from the Hertz centre you have selected.


What forms of payment does Hertz accept?

  • American Express
  • MasterCard
  • Diners Club
  • Visa
  • Hertz Card
  • JCB

What do I need to know about Hertz?

Does Hertz offer a pick-up service?

Hertz offers a free pick-up and drop-off service at select non-airport locations in the US. Unfortunately the service isn't available in Australia. If you're booking for pick-up in the US, when you're booking your hire car, look out for the letters HLE listed for the location. This means you'll be able to arrange a pick-up and drop-off with that location.

Does Hertz have unlimited miles/kilometres?

At most urban locations in Australia, Hertz rentals don't limit the number of kilometres per day or per rental. If you're picking up a car in a more remote area, you may be limited to 100 free kilometres per day.

How do I cancel or modify my reservation with Hertz?

To view cancel or modify a reservation just click on the reservation tab on the main menu and click ‘View/ Cancel/ Modify Reservation’. Enter your confirmation number and your surname and hit continue to display your booking.

What happens if there's damage to the car?

If you get into an accident or your rental vehicle is stolen or damaged in use, you will have to pay an excess charge. This charge can be upwards of $6,000, depending on the car and the rental company.

What options do I have to remove or reduce rental excess?

You can remove or reduce your excess completely with the following options:

1. Pay for an excess waiver with the car rental company

The cost of this will vary depending on the destination you're in and it's usually charged at a daily rate. Some rental companies may only let you reduce a part of your excess charge.

2. Buy car rental excess insurance

Companies like Tripcover.com.au and Rentalcover.com offer insurance that purely covers you for car rental excess charges. You can learn more about car rental excess insurance here.

3. Buy travel insurance with car rental excess cover

Travel insurance policies typically include car rental excess cover automatically and with cover up to $6,000. The benefit of getting rental excess through travel insurance is that you also get travel insurance cover!
