Cons:The quoted price was USD 90, I ended up paying $190!! Despite declining additional insurance, they said they have to charge my credit card (not put a hold, but an actual transaction) for the value of the rental car (approx. $5600 USD). With a slight fluctuation in exchange rate from about ZAR 15.62 to ZAR 15.82 USD, I ended up losing money when they "refunded" me for the value of the car after returning it. Nowhere did they mention I'd be subject to such charges when I booked the car through kayak. Very dishonest practice that misleads customers into thinking they will be paying less than what they will actually end up paying. Might as well book directly through the company next time. Dont bother with this one. They also did not have the right type of vehicle that I booked for and said they only have a smaller size car when I arrived. Might be better off using Uber during your stay.Reviewed 30 May 2016

Misrepresented offerPros:Once I upgraded to the car I ordered, it was goodCons:Was offered a rubbish Chevrolet Scion or something when I booked a VW Polo. Was made to pay more to get the polo I wanted. This was after I already refused some Toyota sedan they offered me when I wasn't happy waiting 30 minutes for a car I had booked two days earlier.Reviewed 7 Apr 2016

Pros:Vehicle was clean and drove well. Drop off was quick.Cons:Standard car hire in South Africa includes CDW (so I separately buy car hire excess insurance) so I was very surprised that there was no CDW or theft protection and that they wanted to put the full value of the car on my card. The T&Cs provided previously were incredibly unclear / vague saying that it was included on some bookings as a requirement but not saying whether it was included in this booking and as stated it is normal that it is included so very surprising. Kayak should include in their quotes whether it is or is not included as otherwise the comparison is apples / oranges. Pretty poor.Reviewed 20 Jun 2016

Poor quality carPros:Car was clean. Staff were friendly.Cons:Booked a VW Polo, got a rubbish little Chevrolet hatch and was told it was same class, honestly one of the worst cars I have ever driven, well below the build and finish quality of a Polo (which I booked and paid for).Reviewed 23 Mar 2016

Pros:Good car, friendly staff.Cons:In Cape Town my booking was mixed up with another person of the same last name from another country. One week later it still isn't straightened out. I received his e-receipt for his four day rental and later my e receipt for my rental but with his name and private information. It appears I have been charged for a sum which I pre-paid and will have to go after Hertz for that. When I returned the car my supposedly fixed booking came up in his name. Very frustrating.Reviewed 10 Jan 2018
