Waiting for my refund because I was not able to pick up the car because they did not have any available and I wasn’t the only one that was unable to get a car!! Very disappointed never using this again!Reviewed 19 Jan 2023

I had inadvertently chose to pick up the vehicle away from the airport. The Hertz desk at the airport was unable to change the reservation to the airport because I originally booked through Kayak. I was able to get a new reservation (at a price that was tripled what I originally booked) through the Hertz employee. He also suggested that I call and cancel my original reservation for a refund. I understand that mistakes happen, but this is the second time the counter employee can’t help me because I didn’t book through them directly. The price was excellent through Kayak, but I was left in the rain at the airport without a car because of my error. I wish Kayak would work with the businesses to avoid these issues.Reviewed 19 Jan 2023

Good day. The 2 employees working at The Alameda Hertz San Jose chose not to answer the ringing phone . I began calling them on December 27th, just so as to make sure getting a driver to bring me all the way there for my confirmed car rental would not be a big waste of time. Sadly after trying to get thru on the phone , I got a ride there. Only to witness both employees letting the phone ring right before my eyes, yet never answering it once. I also was told I’d be put on a wait list for a car that was not there. The wait list was hand written on a paper with at least 30+ names ahead of me on it. #1 issues are the phone wasn’t attempted to be answered, yet there are 2 customer service employees working there. I see 1 who could answer calls every few minutes, and photograph vehicles and another who could greet customers / check in reservations. I also see that a general manager was not present to help, nor was a assistant manager there to help if it was so busy. Bottom line , no one absolutely no one tried to answer phone calls therefore waisting our time going there. Just wanted to know if there was a car there for my reservation or not before going there. Spoke to a hertz supervisor Erik on the phone to see if he could get the employees there to answer the business phone , and surprise! Erik supervisor could NOT get them to answer their business phone. He also could not get the General Manager mr Pham to answer his phone either. So a business that chooses deliberately to NOT answer calls during business hours. For safety reasons, I chose to call ahead to make sure it would it be a waste of time Togo there. But I got a driver to bring me there since no one would answer the business phone. Time terribly wasted. -AlexiaReviewed 28 Dec 2022

I traveled to San Jose from Hawaii via LA to visit some colleges with my daughter. I didn't read the fine print on the rental pickup location and found out it wasn't at the airport. Well, after speaking to customer service multiple times, there was no way to change the pickup / dropoff without paying a huge fee so I ended up having to uber to the location of the rental car from the airport. During my 4 day rental, I tried to change the drop off location but again found it to be impossible. I even dropped in to a local Hertz office in Redwood city to speak to a person but they told me they could not change the drop off location without a major fee. So again I had to get up early and take the care to a location about 4 miles from the airport and uber to the airport. Not ideal. Fortunately, my daughter was ok with getting up a little earlier but I was not happy about this situation. I do understand it was my fault for not knowing what street the airport was on but I think it would be helpful to allow customers to change pickup / dropoff locations without paying a huge fee. I noticed on the terms of the rental, that there would be a nominal fee of 10 dollars for changes. Perhaps that is waived due to the prepaid nature of the deal with Priceline. I recommend making it easier for customers in the future to make such changes. thank youReviewed 15 Jul 2022
