When we arrived at Oakland Airport to drop off the car, one of the workers saw that we were traveling with a toddler, a car seat and a lot of luggage. To save us the trouble of having to unload everything, carry it and wait for the shuttle, he drove us directly to the airport terminal in our rental car, and then returned the car for us. While this is not normally part of his job, he went above and beyond to help us. This made our day and was a great start to our Christmas holiday.Reviewed 10 Jan. 2024

Cons:Final billing. In the final bill email, I was charged the weekly rate for the daily rate and had to rush back to the rental car desk to get adjusted after I had gotten to my airport gate. I could not get a person on the phone to help me and had to go back in person. It was stressful.Reviewed 6 Apr. 2021

Pros:Nothing.Cons:The location I was given to pick up the car was closed, and had been for months. The next closest Hertz did not have any cars available. I had to go to another car rental company entirely. I don't know how the system allowed me to make a reservation here. I had to spend an hour on the phone afterward to be sure I got a refund for the whole ordeal.Reviewed 24 Feb. 2021

Top tips for renting a car from Hertz in San Jose

  • When you book Hertz car rentals in San Jose, California, due to the combination of cosmopolitan cityscape, mild weather, and spacious city conditions, you have a broad selection of suitable automobiles to select from. Neither a classic sedan nor SUV would seem out of place or too boxy for road conditions. And with Silicon Valley’s tech-first culture, electric vehicle chargers are just as common (if not more common) as gas stations, so travelers who want to avoid gas guzzlers can opt for an electric vehicle without inconvenience. Those traveling to the mountains nearby will also want to consider the winding roads and dirt paths in their travels.
  • Hertz is one of the largest and most popular rental companies in the world, boasting one of the largest fleets of selections available from any provider. Travel is very common in San Jose due to international business and Silicon Valley’s global appeal, so many Hertz locations can be found located throughout the city. Getting around the city via public transportation is easy as well, as are Lyft and Uber services, so you won’t have any trouble getting to the Hertz Car Rentals location of your choosing.
  • While Hertz has the final say on the make and model you receive, you do have the option of choosing the car type. If Hertz doesn’t have the make and model you’re looking for, they’ll provide you with something similar. When selecting the car, be sure to take travel aspects into consideration such as how many people you have traveling with you, how much luggage you have, or whether or not you plan on leaving the city. The city’s CalTrain bus and light rail systems connect to local public transportation in the surrounding Bay Area, but driving is still the most efficient way to get around.
  • Due to the many locations of Hertz Car Rentals in San Jose and its surrounding area, be sure to double-check that the location you rent your car from isn’t in an inconvenient location. Every location in San Jose is accessible, so no matter what you’ll ultimately be able to get to your rental car. However, the city covers about 180 square miles, so the location may be a good distance from your travel plans.
