Really efficient, I liked how helpful the staff were and that they had most of the check in items digitized!

Can't get better than that. Everything was smooth from beginning to end. Both the initial rental and return process went quickly as well and the car itself was great.

Pros:

Pick up was easy, everything was explained. The car was damage free and operated as exspected. It worked space wise for our luggage and was great in the rain.

Cons:

Nothing.

Cons:

At pickup was informed Invercargil roads were all closed (which was untrue), so I may not be able to drop the car off at scheduled point, but if I made any changes to the dropoff location I would be charged extra by Budget. Very unhelpful, and very unfair to charge customers extra due to weather events outside of our control.

2.0 Poor

Mar 2024

KAYAK
When we arrived to collect our booked car, I was told the booking had been cancelled & there was no car available. No communication to tell me the booking had been cancelled. The staff member was very unhelpful just saying that it wasn’t her problem because we booked through a 3rd party (Kayak). Luckily a super friendly person at another rental car company was able to help us out with a car. It did cost us $100 in taxis to get around between the airport, Hertz, then the new rental car company! All this because the car rental cancellation had not been communicated to me! Very frustrating. NEVER USING HERTZ OR KAYAK EVER AGAIN!!!
