Booking with Hertz Macedonia

Rental Requirement
  • The minimum age to rent a car with Hertz in Macedonia is 21-25 years for most car groups. At the time of car rental reservation, you must present a valid driver`s license which you've possessed for at least 2 years.
Insurance Cover
  • It’s important to know what your basic insurance policy covers. Hertz Standard Rates include damage cover (subject to excess), which provides cover for accidental damage to the Hertz vehicle and/or third party property, such that in the event of an accident, your liability is limited to a reduced amount of loss or damage.
Car Rental Rates
  • All Hertz car rental rates include unlimited kilometers, taxes, standard roadside cover, administration charges and standard damage cover with excess. Satellite navigation is available to purchase locally at the time of booking and/or rental.
GPS Satellite Navigation System (NeverLost)
  • Using the Global Positioning Satellite, Hertz’s state-of-the-art navigation system NeverLost has visual and voice prompts to tell you exactly where you are and gives you turn-by-turn guidance. No more wasted travel time and more peace of mind for holidaymakers. Opt for Hertz NeverLost® Satellite Navigation system unit for a stress-free self-drive holiday.




Picking Up Your Car

Documents Required
  • Drivers must present the following documents at the rental counter:
    • Car rental booking confirmation
    • Valid driver’s license and international driving permit (IDP)
    • Valid credit card
    • Passport (for international travelers only)
Additional Drivers
  • Ensure that they are listed on the Rental Agreement by registering at the rental counter. There is no coverage for damages by drivers not registered. A nominal fee may apply.
Refueling Options
  • Hertz Macedonia provides you with a full tank of fuel when you collect your rental vehicle. The vehicle must be returned with a full tank of fuel.




Driving guidelines

Speed
  • Always drive your Hertz vehicle within designated speed limits. Speeding is a serious offense and speed limits vary from town to town, so ensure you adhere to the speed limit signs posted along all roads, at all times.
Driver Fatigue
  • Fatigue can be as dangerous as drink driving or speeding and contributes to many fatal accidents. Stop your Hertz rental car every 2 hours to stretch your legs and get some fresh air. Try to time your day’s travel so that you arrive at your overnight destination with time to relax and unwind.
Fuel Stops
  • It is advisable to fill up the tank of your rental car before venturing to the more isolated areas of Macedonia.
Vehicle Breakdown
  • Do not leave the vehicle under any circumstances. In case of a vehicle breakdown, refer to the information that is provided with your Hertz car. Depending on the severity of the breakdown, a replacement vehicle may be made available.
Sudden Equipment Failure
  • This rarely happens when you’re renting with Hertz Macedonia, but it is always good to know the basic handling techniques so you’d feel more confident if such unfortunate situation is to occur:
    • Tire Blowout – ease your foot off the accelerator, keep a firm grasp on the steering wheel and pull your Hertz car off the roadway.
    • Brake Failure – if your brake pedal suddenly sinks to the floor, pump it to build pressure. If that does not work, use your emergency brake. Shift your rental vehicle into a lower gear to slow down.
    • Steering Failure – ease your foot off the accelerator, turn on the emergency flashers and come to a slow stop. Brake gently to prevent the Hertz vehicle from spinning.
    • Stuck Accelerator – hook your toe underneath it to free it. If it does not become free, shift your vehicle into neutral and brake gently to slow down.
