Can You Extend a Car Rental Hertz?

Yes, you can extend your rental with Hertz in most cases, but there are some conditions. First off, the length of the extension depends on whether or not they have other cars available. Basically, if they have a car that you can use for longer than your current rental is scheduled to last, then you’re good to go. If it turns out that the perfect car for you is already booked for later in the week (or however long you need), there may be nothing they can do.

If a car is available and makes sense given how much extra time you need, then all that’s left to do is call the local Hertz office to talk about booking an extension. The details will vary depending on when and where you’re making your reservation, so it’s best to call as soon as possible and speak with someone directly just to make sure everything goes smoothly once you do arrive at their office.

You’ll be charged an additional $34.99 fee when you extend a rental.

  • First, make sure you can afford it. There’s a $34.99 fee for extending your rental, so make sure that you have the money for the extra charge before you book your new reservation.
  • If you have an unlimited mileage agreement, you won’t be charged any additional fees when you extend your rental.
  • If you need to extend your car rental, do it as early as possible to avoid disappointment and ensure availability.

If you have an unlimited mileage agreement, these fees don’t apply.

If you have an unlimited mileage agreement, you can extend your rental free of charge. You will not be charged any fees associated with additional miles driven if that’s included in the original rental.

If you don’t have an unlimited mileage agreement and are extending your rental, you will be charged a daily fee to account for the additional days of usage. You will also be charged $34.99 if you extend your rental—this is because it requires special authorization from Hertz as well as a new contract to go along with the extension.

Extensions are subject to availability, so call as soon as possible.

Extensions are subject to availability, so call as soon as possible. You will only be able to extend your rental at the location you originally rented from. Late returns will be charged for a full day’s rate plus an additional $10/day up to a maximum of $200. If you think you will be late, contact the location before your scheduled return time and ask about extending your rental. Please note that availability is subject to the location’s available stock of vehicles, so make sure to call as far in advance as possible!

If you need to extend your rental car reservation with Hertz, you should do so as early as possible.

If you need to extend your rental car reservation with Hertz, you should do so as early as possible. Try to call them before the original request is due back. They may or may not be able to extend it at that time, based on factors such as availability (they may have other customers who have reservations for the car starting at that point), but it’s best to check. If you wait until after dropping off the vehicle, they won’t be able to guarantee a rental car for when you will need it again.

Note that if Hertz allows you to extend your rental period, they will charge an additional daily rate plus taxes and fees; this could end up being quite expensive compared to what you originally paid. Also, they’ll only allow you to extend your car rental by one day at a time—you can’t rent the same car for a month longer than initially agreed upon—so try not to change your plans too much when extending your reservation!
