Book early with Hertz and you can get up to 25% Off. Book 60 days in advance to get 25% Off ~ Book 30 days in advance and you'll get 20% Off !

Hertz Advance is available in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Norway.

Plus they also have some good student offers which mean they can get 15% off car hire and 20% off van hire.

It seems a good deal for older students as A Young Driver Surcharge is applicable for students aged between 19 and 24.

* 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).

Great news for students! Thanks!

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.

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....
