Won’t honor prepaid pricesPros:Asst at car place was a nice guy.Cons:Refused to accept card they already charged. Even with a card they would accept they wouldn’t keep the pricing. Mind you they had already charged a rental fee and a deposit that would be refunded in 7 to 10 days. Then they wanted literally double the price to keep the rental and “could not” change cards in the office so I had to call the 800 number and wait 1 hour and 17 minutes to get the fee “reduced” to 1and a 1/3 the original price and pay a new deposit. Mind you they had already charged the deposit once that I wouldn’t get back for 7to 10 days. In short my 4 day $180 deal wound up at $859 out the door. I am supposed to get half my money back as refunded deposits but we will see.Reviewed 1 May 2018

Pros:I had the worst possible experience. Hertz, Priceline, and Kayak allowed me to book a car for pickup at noon. I arrived at the Hertz location and was told it closed at noon, so they would not give me my car. I received no communication of this. What a horrible experience.Cons:Not being given the option to pick up a car at noon, if the office is not open at noon.Reviewed 19 Jan 2021

Unclear pricingPros:Hertz has double charged me I have paid carrentals and Hertz has charged ne the full amount again. Now I need to settle this through a billing dispute. The people at the counter absolutely refused to acknowledge that I had already been charged the full amount. Even after I showed them ng credit card statement online.. they actually asked me to go fight with the billing department.Totally unpleasant experience. Would never recommend Hertz againCons:Hertz has double charged me I have paid carrentals and Hertz has charged ne the full amount again. Now I need to settle this through a billing dispute.

Cons:Manager did plan for a car of the class (luxury) that is reserved and pre-paid. However, car was to be brought from another location and did not make it in time. No luxury fur me! He did his best to deal with it- but I did not get the car I reserved, and was there fir an hour! No kine... just took so long to deal with because the driver /transport was missing, should have been back and did not answer several calls from manager. Big foul up. Do not appreciate it. Booked luxury class for a reason... an suv is not an upgrade from luxury.Reviewed 6 Dec 2019

Below my expectation of Hertz standardPros:The car is very clean. The service people (male) when I returned the car was more friendly than the people (female) when I picked up the car.Cons:1. During entire rental period, there were 2 vehicle warning lights showed up on the car's dashboard. Fortunately no serious problem was happened. 2. This site did not offer "Pick Up and Return Service", which did not mentioned anywhere at Kayak website when I booked until I went there and was told by the Hertz service people. 3. I paid a little higher rental fee to picked up Hertz over other car rental companies because of its brand name and the previous experiences. However, the overall experience was a little disappointed and below my expectation of Hertz standard.Reviewed 11 Apr 2018

Above and beyond the call of duty!!Pros:My wife had some surgery that meant she couldn't walk far and I would have to muscle our bags from the rental garage to the check in desks! There were no carts in the turn in area! First they said there was a cart area for $.25 you could rent it nearby! Then another attendant said he would go and get it for us ! This was followed by the first attendant saying wait we can give you a ride to your air line! Then a third gentleman who appeared to be of the Siek Faith volunteered to take us and he took us to our check in curb and muscled our two 50 pound bags and all our smaller bags and helped my wife from the car while I procured a luggage cart from the walkway! I had thought the the check out crew had done a super job in getting us on our way, but three check in staff were superior to any I have ever encountered ! They really brightened our day and if you can figure out who they were, please thank them for us!! The first attendant was a young lady and her name may have been Nayri or similar! Thanks Hertz you're back to being number one in my book!Reviewed 25 Aug 2017

Pros:Nothing. This was a terrible experience. Your company had no cars when we showed up at the correct time and the employee could got guarantee us a car at any point in the next 2 days. We ended up cancelling our reservation and using a get around service instead. I have never had an experience like this before and will never been using hertz in the future because of it. Also I was under the impression that the hertz location was at the airport considering that what I requested but when we got to the hertz at the airport they told us our reservation was at a hertz 15 minutes away. At the very least you could also give me a refund for the wasted $20 Uber to the location that didn’t have any cars and confusion of booking location.Reviewed 16 Feb 2021

Pros:Rolinda (sorry if I misspelled) was very friendly, helpful and professional, much appreciated!!Cons:Had to pay $10 extra for a vehicle that better suited our needs, just felt that the vehicle I reserved was closer to the one I had to pay the upgrade fee on.. aside from that it was a great experience.Reviewed 29 Jul 2020

Pros:The value was good. The vehicle was comfortable (a Dodge mini-van).Cons:We had to wait for over 1.5 hours to pick up the vehicle, as the car was not clean when we arrived for pickup. They supposedly had to wash it and clean out the inside. The outside was done with what looked like a muddy rag.Reviewed 17 Oct 2020

Pros:Nothing.Cons:The location I was given to pick up the car was closed, and had been for months. The next closest Hertz did not have any cars available. I had to go to another car rental company entirely. I don't know how the system allowed me to make a reservation here. I had to spend an hour on the phone afterward to be sure I got a refund for the whole ordeal.Reviewed 24 Feb 2021
