Can a Hertz rental car be taken through the Neum Corridor in Croatia?

Hello Croatia Forum,
We are renting a car in Italy via Hertz and driving through Slovenia and Croatia. Our southernmost point is Dubrovnik. I have been trying to clarify with Hertz whether we can drive through the Neum Corridor or not, as Croatia is on their approved list, but Bosnia is not. No one can provide a clear answer and they say it must be handled at the desk where you actually pick up the vehicle. Has anyone driven through Neum Corridor with a Hertz rental car? Am I over thinking it? I understand we need some sort of written authorization allowing us to drive in Croatia, and that is taken care of at the rental desk (Milan, in our case). Technically Bosnia is off-limits for Hertz, but I'm not 100% sure that includes Neum and they don't have any specifics. I am also aware that a work-around is the ferry from Ploce, but that is not ideal, although a good backup plan. Thanks for any tips.

I have used Europcar to do a similar trip, and the advice I was given was the same as the above. I had better luck making the booking (with free cancellation) and then phoning the office the booking was from, as they are the ones who are on the ground and actually know the rules!

Hope this helps!

This is a question for Hertz not people on this site who might or might not know the answer. I was told you could not take a rental to Prague well that turned out wrong. Yes some rentals might not allow it but some will. Always check with the company your paying the cash too.

Thank you. I had thought perhaps someone had had specific experience with Hertz. Thanks for the advice.
