3.9 Mediocre7 Sep 2021
needed to rent a car and only availability was a cargo van. Since there was only two people and no other choice we took it. Was given the oldest van on the lot. It was uncomfortable but managed the job. The drop off location given to us by Hertz in Dallas did not accept cargo vans so they sent us to another location 30 minutes away. Off course this one closes early so we left the van and keys in night drop box. No word on whether it was checked in the next day or not.

NothingThey are scam artist behind the counter at LFT. They literally had the audacity to try to charge me for a broken windshield that I did not break. They have no cameras around the rental car area yet claimed it was my fault. Absolute trash employees and trash company, I will never rent from hertz ever again.

This was one of the best hertz rental experience I have ever had. Great price, ease in extending my rental, excellent service.

NothingThe vehicle being available. Pickup location said the vehicle wasn’t available and that the online reservation doesn’t care if anything is available that they get paid no matter what. The pick up locations wasn’t accommodating or tried to locate a vehicle at another location in the area.

I was given a full refund in 7 - 10 days.My car rental location was not at the airport where I landed. I had asked for Lafayette LA airport and was given an off-site location that was closed when I landed. Hertz managers did not help and left me stranded without a car and unable to get to my hotel an 1:45 mins away. Very disappointed.

We noticed tire pressure reducing on our second day with the car. We filled the tire with air, and reported the issue to Hertz as soon as we got back to our room. I expected them to send someone out to, perhaps, change the tire. But no, we were told to take the back to the airport. Then...We were exhausted but took the car in. The worker said we’d have to trade cars out and did we fill up the tank! I said no...then she states I will most likely be charged for a new tire! I was shocked. I called the next day to check on this, and she said I wouldn’t know till Monday (weekend). still ?

The toughest part was arriving at Lafayette airport and not knowing where to go or how to pick up the rental. No instructions were provided so we had to figure it out. Location is at 401 E. Pinhook and you have to call but the shuttle came to get us as soon as we found out how to contact them.
10.0 Excellent19 May 2021
Staff was very prompt and professional with both pick up and delivery to and from the airport. For the price I paid, the car was excellent. The only thing wrong with it was the driver side door handle was a bit broken but totally a minor complaint.

No carNothingUpon arriving at the Alamo counterat Lafayette regional there was a sign that said 'no cars available'. I waited for the clerk to surface thinking since I had a reservation they would have one left. She told me that all cars were gone. I asked her what the purpose of. Reservation was if there was. no car upon my arrival. She said I could take a cab and request reimbursement I then had to rent a Ford Focus for $63/ per day from a competitor

I experienced total loss with the flood in Louisiana, including 2 cars. Insurance is moving along incredibly slowly and apparently there was not rental included in our coverage. Therefore, I have to pay for everything myself. As a Realtor, a care us essential! While I will eventually be able to write it on taxes as a business expense I STILL have to pay for it. Not sure why no one seems to get that part! The affordability of the car and it's overall good condition is the KEY to my survival as a mom if busy children and an REALTOR trying to provide for my family.

Liked: Upgraded me without much fuss to Mini Van, since they didn't have my reserved Full Size SUV. Disliked: Didn't have what I had reserved, even after confirmation e-mail was received from them the day before. Had to wait in line for at least 45 mins before I was able to be helped with my reservation/pick up. Flights didn't change, plans didn't change, but some how the reservation was only til Noon my day of departure and they charged me about $200 more for the "3 hr late turn in."

The staff was friendly and helpful. Pick up and drop off was easy.I thought it was pricey but it was the cheapest option, so could just be that I don’t rent card very often.
2.0 Mediocre15 May 2021
They need to make it explicitly clear (online and at rental kiosk) that they do not accept Debit cards so we don’t wait an hour in line at the airport only to find out that I can’t rent a car when I finally speak to the employee.

Car was dirty with food on steering wheel and center counsel windows were so dirty I had to pull over and wife a circle so I could see out of it. Vehicle was supposed to be Covid-19 safety sanitized with a sticker and no such thing. Also I reserved a SUV and ended up in an Nissan Altima and told “oh well it’s all we have”

The car and program was fineThe agent in Lafayette kept us quite a long time trying to sell upgrades and insurance. Due to this sales approach the other people ahead of us delayed us by close to an hour, which caused us to miss a function that we were supposed to attend. We arranged the car in advance in order to avoid delay in pick up because we knew time was short to get to our destination. Also the deposit of over $100 was not given as expected at car return because my husband left the keys in the car instead of bringing them to the desk, and we were asked to go to the gate instead of retrieving the keys. I can only hope that this will be corrected and our refund processed. Thank you. Everything else about the car was fine.

MehBecause my flight was late they had to move my reservation to the airport branch instead of the off the airport branch and I ended up having to pay about $50 more bucks. The counter clerk was nice, he tried to get me some discounts. But their drop off location is in a weird lot that has you walk through the side of the airport and there is no one there to hand the keys to. So you go to the same counter you got the car from and of course they ask what your mileage was, like I know?

Courteous agentEnterprise only had one car to offer me for one-way. This 2016 Corolla with 23k miles was disgustingly dirty inside (upholstery, dash, windows) and smelled of pets and cigarettes. Under no condition should this car should not be in their rental fleet!

Helpful staff, flexible returnEnterprise staff could not have been more helpful. Our return flight was cancelled due to snow, so we had to return the car to New Orleans rather than Lafayette. They changed the return and did not charge a one-way fee. Great car, excellent service, no nickel-and-dimeing. That's a winning combination.

I am most baffled.....read on....I thought I loved the price. But actually I have no idea what the cost will be. I was supposed to get an email from Enterprise. I was supposed to get a phone call from the office I rented from in Lafayette, LA. I got neither.The awful communications process. The unfulfilled promises.

I really liked Neshanda (maybe I misspelled her name). Very helpful. Helped me get another vehicle since the mini van I reserved was not there.I hate not getting the vehicle I reserved on line. You showed a mini van but that is not what I got. Why do you ALWAYS bait and switch? I do not think I have ever gotten the exact vehicle I have reserved. Why?????

The fact that Avis is reserving cars that they don’t have, especially through use of third party apps, makes traveling such a gamble. Waiting in line for over 30 minutes at your destination, just to be told there are no cars, is crazy! And then when a car comes in, during COVID, there’s are so many people waiting ahead of me, that I decided to take the car before it was cleaned. And cleaned it myself. Yeah, won’t be using Avis or Cheapflights after this. No other car rental had lines. Their parking lots were full of cars. So it wasn’t a lack of cars in general. The lack of coordination between the reservation systems of Avis and Cheapflights was the problem. When I was leaving town, there was a long line at the counter again. Crazy.
