Quick and easyPros:The drop off was in the parking lot and was very quick and easy.Cons:It's kind of a long walk to the terminal. Not really a complaint because it makes sense and I'm just as happy to get myself somewhere on foot as wait for a shuttle and drive around circles.Reviewed 22 Nov 2017

InsurancePros:Everything about the experience was excellent except for insurance cost. Hertz's costs seemed very high. Being an international traveler I had no coverage from my home policy so had to take them. Kayak's additional insurance program seemed deceptful.Cons:KAYAK's offer of additional insurance seems to be something of a charade. It's easy to say yes to a third party insurance policy while you're making the reservation. But when you arrive at your destination, late at night, in the rain and be told by the rental company that it's a third party policy that might cover something over and above what their insurance options cover, but they don't know what that may be (a reasonable response) it becomes disturbing. I certainly wasn't going to dig out the policy while standing at the rental car counter and spend 20 Minutes reading it to determine which Hertz insurance options to take. So I took them all. I imagine I was over insured, and over paid for it, but at least I had a car. But I was also very frustrated with what I had purchased through Kayak.Reviewed 15 Jun 2017

Pros:Car was in good conditionCons:Hour wait in line, overwhelmed agents. Once we finally got to an agent, waited another half hour for car to be cleaned. When returning car to Aberdeen airport, gas station was closed and didnt accept American credit cards.Reviewed 11 Aug 2019

Check you carCons:Check your car before you rent. Some hubcap scratches cost $100 because I didn't inspect before I rented. The employee was difficult, the location hard to reach, and they offered no assistance with finding my way in the city.Reviewed 7 Aug 2018

Pros:Gas mileageCons:The car had connectivity issues. I couldn’t connect my mobile phone to charge it or use its map. On my way, I stopped by two Hertz location hoping that they change my car but they didn’t. I am not satisfied with this rental at all.Reviewed 18 Jul 2019

You cancelled my reservationPros:NothingCons:You cancelled my reservation a week before I picked it up. I wasn't notified and was forced to get a same day booking for a rental car. It cost me hundreds more than I planned and destroyed my student budget for the month.Reviewed 22 Aug 2017

Friendly staff, but many issuesPros:Staff was friendly, but we had so many hiccups trying to get our car. It was a very busy day and rental options were limited. We had reserved a premium vehicle which was not available. In addition, we wanted sat nav since we were coming from abroad. They eventually found us a vehicle after 2 hours, but because we didn't reserve a sat nav ahead of time, which I don't recall seeing options for, they had to charge us extra.Cons:First bit of advice is to make sure if you purchase insurance through Allianz and Kayak to have the policy on hand, because Hertz wants to make sure they're vehicles will be totally covered, so since we weren't sure exactly how much would be covered through Allianz, we ended up getting Hertz's insurance coverage as well. For the reservation they didn't have the vehicle class we had reserved, in addition we wanted sat nav so we had to pay for rental of the sat nav. The first vehicle they gave us actually had built in sat nav. They did not realize this, but they said they wouldn't charge us for the upgrade vehicle and instead just charge us for the portable sat nav. This was fine, except the vehicle itself could barely start. Options were very limited so by the time they could find another vehicle it had been 2 hours since we arrived. All in all the staff were doing there best on a busy day, but the real issue came with the direction for dropping our car off at Culloden/Inverness Airport...Reviewed 23 Jun 2017

Pros:Picked up at Edinburgh downtown. Car was already booked. When given the insurance rate it was more that the car rental with a big deductible. Was told by the agent that if I was to have booked with UK Hertz, then there would be no deductible. So, he cancelled the car and redid it under UK and no deductible, which saved me lots of money. And, I needed it, as some scratched the car and I did not have to pay anything. Agent was good,Cons:We did have to wait quite some time to get the car, as only one agent for first 20-25 minutes or so. Was disappointed when there were no other cars available at any location, as we found out the car was not quite big enough. But, we made do. When dropped off in Manchester, there was no one there to check out with. Waited about 5 minutes then had to go into the obtaining are area and man came out to find the person. Girl that did check me out was very hard to understand.Reviewed 21 Jul 2017
