Staff were excellent on arrival to pickup. Drop off seemed fine but we were standing waiting for some acknowledgement from guy checking car when we saw car going away we leftDrop off could be better but overall I found this hire to be the easiest I’ve had so far. I’m waiting to see if I get stung with money on credit card as this has happened twice before with other companies

Everything was good, except for the PAYMENT PROCESSThe car was great, everything was ok.We still have a big problem and would like to hear from a representitive ASAP. We still did not get the invoice for our payment and we don't even know for sure how much we were charged. We dropped off the car in Split airport and we were told there that they cannot process our payment and print an invoice. This is a very weird way to deal with things - I think by law we must receive a receipt for every transaction. We're still worried that we were charged more than we were supposed to. Please contact us.

The check-in process took merely 5 minutes. The desk associates spoke multiple languages. There were no other cars available so we did not get the car of our choice which was rather small.
7.2 Good27 Jan 2020
drop-off was easy because u just leave the keys in the safe box.The place (parking) itself as there's a gas station right next to it. But because of the roads one needs to make a big circle around to get to the parking back (as u actually want to fill the tank). But the roads there are a mess and it took us around 20 minutes to actually get back. Second thing is that when picking up the car I needed to prove my residential address. It's quite tricky to prove it under some circumstances. Thus I was just lucky that the costumer's manager knew my internet bank and managed to find my registration there

Then when we returned the car they charged us for a tiny scratch so low on the bumper it might as well be under the car. I know I didn't hit anything or cause this damage but they insisted on charging $1000 on top of my rental and I'm still waiting to hear what the actual repair cost is

3.6 Mediocre16 Mar 2017
Ripped offCar was clean and new. That's the only thing I can say good about the Hertz rental experience. I reserved a station wagon for 1 day with a return at a different airport. The car was reserved for €85.31. When I got to the rental desk I asked to add a GPS (keep in mind I did the same on a rental in Munich with Europcar and was charged €6/day for an in dash GPS upgrade on my compact car). They gave me a new total at Hertz of €120. When I asked about the difference, I was told the GPS was €25/day. So I asked why the charge increase was €35 and suddenly the language barrier was too much and they didn't understand me. Since I need to get my daughter back to her college, I reluctantly bit the bullet and signed for the €120. I agreeded to fill the car with gas myself, however, they neglected to tell me that no gas stations within 15 miles of Weeze airport (and I tried 9 of them) would take an American credit card. This would be fine and I would have been glad to pay cash in Euro, but none had an attendant, only pay at the pump. Therefore, I had to return the car without a full gas tank but it still had over 3/4 of a tank of gas. I had to return the car to an unattended Hertz lot at Weeze airport and drop the keys in a drop box since it was 5:30am. When I got my emailed receipt from Hertz days later, I was charged €191.27 ($210.63) for a 10 hour rental. I have never been ripped off so severely and will NEVER rent another car from Hertz again and I rent cars several times a year. I will pay more to use someone else. I expected more from a supposedly "reputable" car rental company.

Deceptive and dishonest turn-in procedures. They will attempt to have you sign the final bill and then add charges after the fact.
2.0 Mediocre14 May 2019
Nothing. Be careful of Dollar.After having booked on kayak at a relatively good price, I was told that in he small prints it was stated that I had to take insurance (even I have private one) and this made my rent went up 400 euros. This was straight criminal but unfortunately it was 23:00 and there were no alternative.

The car rental pick up and drop off were easy to find and useI rented a luxury car and got a low end car because they ran out. I reserved the luxury car in advance so i feel this is their problem not mine. Additionally, i was still charged at the luxury rate

Car hire excess insurance in Düsseldorf

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Düsseldorf car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Düsseldorf.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Düsseldorf car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Düsseldorf

  • A hire car is the most comfortable way to explore not only the city of Dusseldorf but the whole of Rhineland. With a hire car, you can visit the city’s main attractions at your own pace, including the dozens of museums on offer as well as other stunning locations in the countryside. Head to Drachenfels for a taste of the Pieper winery award-winning wine or visit the Schloss Dyck castle, just half an hour away from Dusseldorf.
  • Most of the major car hire agencies, including Europcar and Sixt, can be found at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is conveniently located just over 4 miles north of the city center. The hire car desks are situated in the Arrivals Hall of the airport’s terminal, and the returns should be done at the Car Rental Center (follow the signs as soon as you get off the highway that leads to the airport).
  • Dusseldorf has a Low Emission Zone that covers good part of the downtown, so in order to drive there you will need a green sticker that indicates the vehicle is allowed to circulate there. Make sure to ask your hire agency to provide you with the sticker. If you’re driving on the Autobahn (freeway), always stick to the right unless you’re passing someone, as traffic runs really fast, particularly in areas where there’s no speed limit.
  • Traffic usually flows pretty well throughout the city since residents use public transportation often, but the roads get more crowded during morning and evening rush hours. Avoid driving between 6:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and you won’t struggle with traffic. Avoid driving in the Old Town area where, due to the narrow alleyways and cobbled streets, congestion is more common.

  • The speed limit in urban areas is typically 50 km/h (31 mph), but it may be as low as 30 km/h (19 mph) in certain residential roads, so watch out for posted signs.

There’s a petrol station at the airport, between the P5 and the Car Rental Center, in case you need to refuel before returning your car.

  • Street parking is available throughout the whole city, and it is typically time-unlimited -- except in the Konigsallee shopping area. In the districts of Stadtmitte, Altstadt, and Carlstadt, meter payment is enforced from Monday to Saturday, between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m, with rates of approximately €2.90 ($3.29) per hour. On the surrounding areas, parking costs between €1.50 - €2.10 ($1.70 to $1.39) per hour.
