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 Jan 10 2024

Would not rent car or honor kayak reservation. Went to Avis insteadReviewed Nov 20 2021

Pros:NothingCons:The website took me to San Jose, California when I asked for San Jose, Costa Rica without adequate warning that it changed the location. For that reason, my booking was incorrect. It was extremely difficult to cancel the reservation because none of the numbers worked from San Jose, Costa Rica. When I finally connected to somebody, she was able to cancel the reservation and reversed the charges. She booked another car for me in San Jose, Costa Rica and sent me a guaranteed price. When I went to pick up the car, this guaranteed price jumped up by $400!! This is totally unacceptable. I won't be using Hertz for any future car rentals.Reviewed Mar 21 2021

Pros:Pick up was easy; car was clean and ran well.Cons:I thought the overall cost was relatively high. It included a different drop off location, but still seemed high--$62/day for a small CRV.Reviewed Oct 12 2017

Cons:Pick up was terrible! The woman at the desk was helping a customer and socializing at the same time! She was even helping him w his itinerary. I stood in line for 20 minutes then she finally acknowledged me and told me to go to the kiosk to check in and get my car!!!!!! So rude!!! I will go back to Enterprise and pay a little more. Their service is so much better than Hertz.Reviewed Mar 13 2017

Inflated promisesCons:I know that all car rentals say (car model) "or similar", but Kayak misrepresented the size of the car in that class. Because of this, Hertz didn't have inventory to fill the reservation. I had to rent from another vendor to meet my needs and it cost more. Kayak, please get your act together.Reviewed Mar 7 2017

Disappointing for hertzPros:Price was okCons:They advertised a Toyota in both cases and ended up With lesser substitute twice. The $9 a gal fill up is really taking advantage of customers. We intended to fill up near the airport but there were no gas stations anywhere near and we were running out of time. I can understand a surcharge but that price is ridiculous.Reviewed Feb 19 2017

Top tips for renting a car from Hertz at San Jose Airport

  • Several Hertz Car Rentals locations near San Jose Mineta International Airport (SJC) exist. The location at 1659 Airport Boulevard is the closest to the airport to serve passengers traveling by air. There is another Hertz location a few minutes away at 323 Martin Avenue, but this branch has limited hours and serves private flights only. The branch on Airport Boulevard is open from 6 am until 12:30 am.
  • While San Jose Airport (SJC) may not receive as many international flights as neighboring San Francisco International Airport (SFO), it’s still a bustling transportation hub, and you should expect lines at the Hertz counter. Friday is usually this location’s busiest day, so we recommend picking up your car on a different day. If you cannot change your arrival day, try to pick up your vehicle in the morning or after 9:00 pm on Friday.
  • Hertz Car Rentals at San Jose Airport provides a 29-minute grace period for late returns. We recommend doing your best to return your Hertz car to the San Jose Airport location on time. If you are more than 29 minutes late returning your rental car, Hertz will charge you a partial- or full-day rental rate. Remember that driving over Highway 17 can get congested during rush hour, so you should incorporate extra time when returning your rental.
  • If you fly in and pick up your Hertz car rental at San Jose Airport, you don’t have to return it to the same location. However, you must pay an intercity return fee as specified in your contract. You must also notify the Hertz staff at San Jose Airport if you want to return the car to a different location, or you will have to pay a return change fee and the intercity return fee.

FAQs about renting a car from Hertz at San Jose Airport

  • What add-ons are available at Hertz Car Rentals at San Jose Airport?

    When booking through KAYAK, you can pick a variety of add-ons at the Hertz Car Rentals at San Jose Airport. Drivers with disabilities can request accessibility add-ons, including right-hand and left-hand handicap control. Those traveling with children can book infant and children’s booster seats. In addition, you can request a GPS navigation system or an additional driver to be added to the contract.

  • If I want to take a road trip along Highway One, which Hertz Car Rentals at San Jose Airport is best for me?

    The stretch of coast between San Francisco and Big Sur is one of the most beautiful drives in the country. Booking a standard or midsize vehicle is the best way to enjoy this road trip. This way, you have enough room to be comfortable, but you won’t have trouble finding parking in small coastal towns such as Carmel-By-The-Sea or Capitola. However, if you plan on camping in Big Sur, we recommend booking a larger vehicle, such as a full-size SUV or a standard SUV. Another choice is to book a convertible; don’t forget that the Slow Coast can get quite foggy during the spring and summer months.

    This Hertz Rental Car center is about 2.2 miles from the terminal, about a 15-minute drive, depending on the time of day. The airport’s rental car shuttle bus stops at Terminals A and C. You can easily find the stop by following the signs. The airport shuttle service starts at 3 am, and the last shuttle leaves one hour after the final flight lands. If you return your Hertz car after-hours and need to be picked up from the Hertz Car Rentals center, use the courtesy phone to call a dispatcher, who will send a shuttle to pick you up.
