Introducing Hertz Students


15% off cars


Are you a student aged 23 or over? Have you held a driver’s licence for over a year? Then here’s the good news: you can now rent a car with Hertz Students.


If you’re thinking ‘well, it’s about time’, we don’t blame you.


After all, every student needs a car sometimes. Whether you’re moving in to or out of uni accommodation, hitting the road for a much-deserved break or visiting friends in the north (or south, east or west), you need wheels.


And now, the extra good news. We know how tight budgets can be. So as a student, you’ll get 15% off cars, and 20% off vans*. If you’re 23, you will need to pay Young Driver Surcharge when you pick up your vehicle. Rates vary, so take a look at our table below. 


Plus, you can go where you want, when you want. Cars are available in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Czech Republic, Norway* and Slovakia. That’s one heck of a road trip.


And what’s more, you can also rent a van in all of those countries (except the Czech Republic and Slovakia).


Remember, you’ll need:

  • A current student ID to be presented at the location
  • A driving licence of more than a year
  • A credit card in your name to make the booking. You will also need to present this at the location.
