I tried and got the same message, however they still have car rentals if you want to pay full price, perhaps it was a publicity stunt.


If you click the link now it says the deal is no longer valid, even though they said bookings up til 30 March...


Yes, but the excess is usually ridiculous and some companies have a habit of charging for pre-exisiting chips, scratches and kerbed wheels. I had a very bad experience with Budget in the US (after I passed my complaint to the Better Business Bureau they backed down and gave me a partial refund). Rental companies will try to sell you upgraded insurance for an inflated daily rate. Don't take it. Instead, go to MoneySavingExpert and do a price comparison for Gap Insurance/CDW. It works out much cheaper and covers you if they try to charge for any damage. But you MUST take out the insurance BEFORE you pick the vehicle up.


car hire at the moment is very dodgy.....viruses can live in the air con, on wheels, seats, everywhere basically....


Virtually all the car rental companies screw you for the tiniest scratches. It seems to be a significant source of income for some. I have used hire cars several times over the last few years and found that your terrified of parking anywhere. Just gave me the keys on pick up but inspected car for ages on return. Expect to see them on their hands and knees as they go over the car checking every nook and cranny. Dreadful experience. Have a read https://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/consumer-affairs/car-hire-horrorsi-charged-420-repair-small-scratch/ This offer is a nice gesture but based on the above please inspect the car on pick up. Bring someone with you if you can. Do a list of anything interior and exterior you find. Note the registration. Present it to them and and get a signature, ask for a photocopy. They will rush you but dont fall for that. Hopefully its going to be a positive experience for most staff who take advantage of this offer.You can always report back on HUKD.

Well, I am disputing it and see where we go from there. A quick google and you will find that Hertz has a pretty bad reputation for this sort of scam long after the rental period when people are not taking the additional insurances they punt.


seriously , you are going to to tell them to eff of right ?


It's usually cost me about £40 to drop a hire car off at a different airport/location than the one I collected the car from, but I have often been upgraded to a high spec car for the whole higher period, I normally higher small cars like a fiesta, and have had Audi Q5, mercs and others like them, and they all returned good mpg at a steady 70mph down the motorway. I also have yearly excess insurance for all of Europe and the UK. I also rent a car from malaga Airport and get the cheapest deals I can (usually through the airline I fly with) the hire car is classed as an older, high mileage and a bit battered and cost about £60 or less for a week, I've had several new cars (delivery miles on the clock) VW, Renault, Ford's and skodas, and when they offer me extra insurance at the hire desk, I always say with a slightly raised voice "I hire lots of vehicles every year and have private excess insurance" that shuts them up with the fear facture they were about to spout on about, as they don't want everyone to know about the el cheapo insurance, as they want to be ripping of the next people in the line.


Dont think they have a drop off Hertz depot at your local dump


This is really smart, now you pay 1 £ to move their cars around, which otherwise would have been paid-for job :D

So a good deal... but at the same time pretty rubbish saves them a lot of money but you still have to get to/from airports and back, if your going that way anyway all good just be nice if they gave fuel allowance (maybe they already have enough takers)

Theory being they charge you a fortune if your drop off location is different and obviously they don’t want to pay for someone to bring it back...


Thanks, OP! Great first post. I have done this in the USA a few times, but never thought to ask here in the UK! (y)

My experience with Hertz... Good... But....Slightest mark and they charge you. I only ever hire now with full CDW including excess cover. Almost doubles my car hire, but worth it to avoid the squabble. Oh.. Doesn't cover alloys.

Whenever I hire a car the starting price of - for example "£12" NEVER has any relationship with the actual price. They have an add on for everything you can think of and even ones you cannot. Like an A**E I hired a car in Majorca last year without reading the small print. It came with a full tank of petrol that I had to pay up front for. Not much use when all I was doing was a round trip of 50 Miles. If anyone knows a reputable car hire firm in Majorca I would be grateful.

I also found Hertz cheaper using the discount code- the problem is Quidco states u will not get any cash back if u use a voucher code or corporate rate. One more thing to be aware of - Quidco only pays cash back if u pre pay ur car hire, not if u pay at ur collection time, the problem is not all the centers offer the pre pay option - so again another negative thing. But if u , like me, is getting a better rate by just using the code itself, then why not, right - voted hot from me


Actually a really good deal for me.... 33% off in Iceland plus 10% quidco. Yes Hertz are usually more expensive than other car hire companies but they don't screw you for fuel and they're not usually situated miles away from the airport


I'd really like to use Hertz instead of other companies - but for a similar car in Malaga, it is working out more than twice the cost of holiday autos!


Prices are indeed awful. Far cheaper to book Hertz via an agent, but then this is usually the case with all the big car hire companies.


Hertz were about twice the price of other companies when I looked so cant see 33% off making a huge difference (and 'up to' so no chance of actually getting 33%!!)

I live in London so no car, just hire as required. I nearly always use Carhire3000, which uses all the top companies including Hertz. Re insurance, there are many websites offering Excess cover but recently Carhire3000 have added this as an option during payment - think it works out at a couple of quid a day. (think Hertz charge about £12/day) Being in London its still expensive (!!!) so gotta keep the cost down somehow.


Damn, I hate them now!!!


Not a chance. Everyone, apart from Enterprise, requires you've held your licence for a year. Most places also charge a premium for those between 23 and 25 and few, if any, will rent to anyone younger than that.


There are companies out there who sell the cover separately and it works out much cheaper to do it that way. I can't remember who they are but they're definitely mentioned in the car hire advice on Moneysavingexpert.com.


Thanks for replying. Might be worth risking, I'm not sure. At least the £5000 was ridiculous enough to make the excess cover a no-brainer. Think it was £15/day, which I wasn't happy paying but it was better than worrying about selling my kidney should I have a major prang.

oO I would expect a driver too for £160. For people over 21 it would have cost £54 for a long wheel base van with Europcar for one day. If you're not 21 surely you know someone that is.


says minimum age 19


You have to be 21 to use that, Hertz allows 19 year olds.


cheaper @ sixt if you are near a participating location


Hot for those wanting a car, say for moving stuff from one uni accommodation to another. Not much use for me though, I need a van, which in Cardiff would cost £160. Man with a van that I used last time, £40 for an hour, which is all I'd need.

oh noz. rubbish deal!!


I've just checked the price for Florida and am getting exactly the same price as before the 'Sale' started. Further, Hertz are a real pain if you want 1 extra driver since they want £9/day+tax, and that doesn't even give a free tank of fuel. Related point, anyone using Auto-Europe beware that they do a dummy test (£1?) on your CC, issue your voucher, then actually attempt to debit your card up to 2 days later. This means that your voucher isn't actually proof of anything. Also the dumber credit card companies will treat this as a typical fraud pattern (ie minimal purchase followed by large purchase) and block your card. I tried to explain to Tesco Finance then fraudsters wouldn't gain much by purchasing car hire, but I wasting my time.


Yesterday's Guardian Money report on Hertz doings mentions the Ryanair bookings. Seems you are obliged to pay for a full tank of fuel on pickup of a Ryanair booking but can then return it as low as you dare at risk of running out.


Despite the so called 33% discount it was 50% more than the quote Ryanair asked if I wanted with hertz when I booked a flight


Brings them into line with the cheaper local companies so worth having as long you watch out for the top up insurance and extras hard sell. Take out an annual car hire insurance policy and you can save the entire cost on your first rental with the likes of Hertz.

If they paid it then it was market price! Law of the jungle. If they had refused one way they'd be pilloried for that. As I said, I'm no apologist for them, but I do understand how the world works.


Tell that to all the poor sods stranded abroad who needed to get back & were taken for a ride by all those greedy ******* car rental companies who decide that £1000+ was a market force price :x


Voted hot, the cheek made me chuckle, and its a lot cheaper than normal which is the point of a hot deal, no? As previously said, would make more sense for customers if there was more time to deliver the car though, so the journey can be enjoyed.

I do agree that you don't get much with nectar points but you must consider that this is given free with any hertz booking. 1000 points is worth 5 quids of shopping. You could get a Hertz car for a day for 23 quids and getting 5 quids worth of shopping is reasonable.


this would be a good deal if on any other collecting system but you need 3,000,000,000 points to get anything ok i might be exagerrating

I really don't like Car-Hire companies. You can tell from the high QuidCo commissions that they all over-charge, and Hertz's website is a prime example of this. If you book in advance, and ask the Hertz website for a quote, it'll give you a basic (expensive) quote. Ah, but if you notice the "book in advance" offer like this, only then will it give you a better quote. And if Hertz decides to offer you a free "Hertz #1 Gold Card", then it'll let you have an even cheaper quote. I'm about to book a 2-week car hire, including 1 child seat, and using Hertz's website, it'll cost me: [INDENT]£408.57[/INDENT] [INDENT]£340.02[/INDENT] [INDENT]or £265 (this one demands I pay for a tank of petrol in advance though, and I can't combine it with QuidCo)[/INDENT] depending on which of these 3 options I choose. (Expedia quotes about £350 for the same rental via Hertz, excluding the car seat.) So many people must get ripped off by this strategy. Why can't Hertz just be honest enough to quote everyone the lowest price ?! Btw, Hertz & Europcar openly admit that if you are traveling with a child, and reserve and pay for a car seat in advance, then they don't actually check that they have one waiting for you until you arrive to drive the car away. In the past I've had them offering to put my 2-month-old baby in a car seat for 4-year-olds and above, as that's all they have. As I said, I don't like car hire companies....


You have to pay for a full tank of fuel up front and return the car empty. If you are only going a short distance this means it may be more expensive than other discounts.


Great news for students! Thanks!


* Book a minimum of 30 days in advance. * Rentals must include a Saturday night or a minimum of 5 days. * An allowance of 150 km per day (150 miles per day in the UK) is included in the price. * If you rent for 5 days or more, your vehicle will be provided with a full tank of fuel which will be charged on pick-up. This charge varies depending on the vehicle model and the price of fuel at the time of hire and will be in addition to the Approximate Total Price quoted for your rental.For your convenience you don't need to refuel on return (there will be no refund for unused fuel when the vehicle is returned at the end of the rental).

Offer now over - replaced with a standard 7 for 5. Davcohen, I presume you book outside the UK? I find europcar (who I believe are close relatives of alamo & national) to be very dear now in the UK.


The excess via hertz was quoted by e-mail for my reservation at £350, but i took out excess cover from worldwideinsure for about £29. Hertz pre loaded my credit card with the £350 in Euros.


But how much might the excess have been in the event of a claim? Last time I had such a deal it was £1600, though the excess could be reduced to £0 for payment of another fee (about £300 over three weeks, IIRC).


Just come back from carcassonne hired a medium size vauxhall through ryanair and hertz cost £291.00 for 14 days - not sure if it's still that cheap though booked it a few months ago ( you do need a ryanair flight booking) ! No other charges just a credit card excess guarantee ! Well pleased with the car.


i found enterprise cheaper then any other
