Not the car I reservedCons:First, it took 30 minutes to check out their cars for the two in front of me in the line. I had to wait half hour to get my keys. Second, I reserved a standard car. When I pick up the car, they gave me a compact car insisting on that I reserved that. Driving a compact car from Boston to New York and back home was not an easy ride.Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

Cons:After I got done paying at the counter, I went to pick up my car and was told they were out of cars and I’d have to wait an hour or so until other people returned their cars. I was on a schedule and this ruined my plans. If the reservation is at 11:00am, then make sure there’s a car ready at 11:00am!Reviewed 30 Oct 2017

Surprises at every turnCons:Two major issues: 1) The rental agent tried to convince me at the counter at pickup that I should never use Kayak insurance - essentially trying to upsell me on Dollar's insurance 2) Twice I had to argue with them about fees. Both times they claimed that my rate had changed b/c I showed up either 10 mins too early or 10 mins too late (at pick up and drop off, respectively). Unfortunately, these changes would have resulted in an additional $600 in fees (on a $200 rental), which is clearly outrageous. Luckily I was able to work with them and they acted reasonably.Reviewed 30 Sep 2016

Easy drop-off at LoganPros:Very fast and efficient for drop-offCons:Take your time to make the correct turns into the rental car drop-off. Also, I pre-paid the fuel, knowing I was coming in on empty when I did the drop-off. If you don't prepay, and are only going to use part of a tank, there is a gas station very near the car rental drop-off to re-fuel, but give yourself the time to do so as it adds critical time when trying to make a flight.Reviewed 22 Aug 2017

Pros:Pick up and drop off was quick and easy. I was worried that the blizzard would be disruptive and my reservation might not be honored, but the car was fueled up and waiting for me.Cons:Tire pressure light was on.Reviewed 27 Jan 2016

Easy, cheap, cleanPros:Was an easy pickup, had the car ready for me and was no baske. Clean car, drove well. Easy drop off. Nice people behind the counter.Cons:They didn’t take the time to go over the car w me before I left (any dents/scratches etc) so I had to take Photos myself just in case.Reviewed 13 Nov 2017

EZ-pass is a ripoff - I was forced to get it, and forced to pay $35Pros:The car itself worked fine, even in a light snow. It was clean and in good repair.Cons:The clerks didn't even register my presence at the counter until I forced them to pay attention to me, and then the person who reluctantly helped me with the car spoke in a nearly inaudible monotone that made it very difficult to understand things like the gas options, the EZ-pass, and where to find the car in the garage.Reviewed 12 Dec 2017

Pros:My husband is disabled and had a great deal of difficulty getting on and off the bus from the terminal to the car rental building. When we returned our car, a driver hopped in and drove us to the terminal. Very special and very much appreciated. Thank you. The price was outstanding.Reviewed 14 Jul 2017

Boston April 8-9 2016Pros:Logan airport's rental location is centralized location for all companies, free Massport shuttle transfer from and back to terminals, easy to navigate and find your way in and out of the center. Only 10 minutes Dollar check in and check out were efficient-15 minutes from leaving terminal to driving vehicle, same on vehicle return-less stressful overall.Cons:Lack of explanation about rental fees and as always the up charges. Paid twice as much as expected. Quoted price of $36 for 24 hours over two calendar days, payed $70. Three insurance options were available, there was never an offer to waive coverage. I foolishly chose to have the least coverage and it cost me $26. Offered EZPASS for tolls-$12 per day flat fee covers all tolls. No explanation or details of what tolls to and from airport would cost. FYI-costs $3.50 into Boston, no cost from Boston to Logan, Tobin bridge (route 1 north of Boston and shortcut to I-95 north for Maine and NH ) does not accept cash, MassPike is another $2.50 to 128/95 interchange. Car was not as advertised-supposed to be Chrsyler Sebring or similar, ended up with Nissan Versa. Fine for me but confusing. The GPS/video screen had Hertz logo and advertising-who did I rent from? Annoying that it rebooted each time you started car and to never turn off. Was I going to be charged?Reviewed 10 Apr 2016

Easy, affordable, clean car, nice peoplePros:Rental process was smooth and easy. They let me pick whatever car I wanted within the class of cars I chose to rent. Car was clean and seemed to be well-maintained. Drop-off went smoothly even in the middle of a snowstorm. No extra or surprise charges.Cons:Tried to push extra insurance, but all car rental companies do this to try to make more money.Reviewed 28 Mar 2016
