Pros:Easy pick up and drop offCons:The cars speakers were messed up, the light for the clock and stereo system didn’t work, there was no back up camera. Most of all the steel light bugged me as I couldn’t see anything on there and then on the last day the light appears! So dumbReviewed 20 Apr 2021

Pros:Pickup staff was very efficient and friendly. Vehicle was clean and ready. Initial rental price of $34/night was great.Cons:When I had to add a day and change dropoff locations, the price went from about $80 to $290 even though the new dropoff location was only about 100 miles away. I will never put myself in this situation, where I am at the mercy of Hertz to determine what I owe them when I drop the rental off, again.Reviewed 6 Jun 2019

Worst rental experience everCons:The rental counter at the Bakersfield airport told me they had no cars available, however, two other people in the airport came up and told me they had been told the same thing but if you sat down and made an online reservation there would miraculously be cars. I tried this and sure enough, I drove off in a car. The laziness of the customer service agents to turn away customers is astonishing. The car I received was not the model I had booked and it had not been cleaned in quite awhile. The inside windshield was so dirty it was hard to see through at night and in the rain.Reviewed 15 Dec 2018

Pick up in Bakersfield CaliforniaPros:New carCons:I RESERVED a sub compact. When I went to pick up my RESERVATION I was told there were no cars and all they had was a van. Fortunately, the gentleman behind me was dropping off a Kia Rio and I was able to get that car. The PEOPLE there were great, sympathetic and worked hard to prep the car quickly. Your check in computer also gave the agent grief as it would not accept my postal code (I'm from Canada), necessitating a call to the supervisor for assistance.Reviewed 26 Oct 2018
