review fromkayak
Cons:Location was closed and no one contacted me before. I had to take a $15 cab to another location to get the car with a promise of reimbursement that never materialized. A huge hassle.Reviewed 23 Nov 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Newer vehicles, lots of extrasCons:Car had obviously not been cleaned or sanitized since previous person rented it. Nothing vacuumed or wiped down, garbage still in it. These things are a must, especially in today’s environment. I had to clean and sanitize it when I got it home before I would let any of my family get in it, not very happy about that...Reviewed 22 Sep 2020

Pros:You cancelled my reservation at the last minute! Thanks for wrecking my vacation plan.Reviewed 14 Jul 2020
review fromkayak
Cons:Consider working together with travel purveyors (travelocity, kayak, expedia, et al) to more fairly compensate customers for unavoidable changes in travel plans during a pandemic. By "more fairly," I mean don't leave them SOL.Reviewed 6 Apr 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Car was okCons:Car not very clean inside and out. Pick up location not very convenient. Check in cumbersome with unexpected additional charges. Drop off very strange; it so happened car was dropped off two days earlier. Attendant said he would take care of necessary paperwork and I would receive the proper credit. I requested a receipt attendant was adamant that I did not needed he would take care of all the needs. This is the first time I dealt with rentals at Albany NY and with Hertz. Since I was pressed for time I moved on. Btw I still do not have correspondence from HertzReviewed 19 Oct 2019
review fromkayak
Cons:Initial staff was rude. Unable to obtain rental since we did not have the original credit card on us that was used at the time the rental was booked. Had my credit card for the same MasterCard on me but was unable to use this even though reservation was for 9/9 and my card was charged 7/25.Reviewed 25 Aug 2019
review fromkayak
