I went to pick up the car, they had hours up to 3 pm posted at the counter for the Saturday 11/28/2020. I was there just a few minutes before 3 pm. Nobody at the counter. Could here music playing in the adjacent employees room, and a personal bag was sitting in the counter chair. Knocked on the employee door twice and waited until 3:15. Couldn’t get assistance or a car. Looked up hertz rental and one was open till 4 pm near the airport in Tyler. Drove to this one before 4 pm, but it was closed also. Therefore wasn’t able to obtain a rental car to get me to Dallas love airport by 4:00am Sunday morning,. so required family member to drive 200 extra miles Sunday morning to go out of there way to drop me off at the airport . It would be better to have your places open to the times they post they are.

I would like my reservation honored. I needed a car. I had a reservation. Everyone there waiting had a reservation. We were all left stranded. We did not even get a cancellation. The hertz crew was home for the day. They left five hours early.Be open. Honor your reservations. Keep open during your business hours. If you want to make it right you can pay the $25 cab ride into town, the $90 I was forced to pay at the hotel and maybe the cost of car rental from Enterprise.

None availableThey had a storm the previous night and had no cars available to rent. I made the reservation that morning yet the lack of cars was not reflected in my search.

I rented a small car to accommodate 4 people. The rental place rented our car out before we got there and the only car available was a Camaro. Hertz did not want to do anything to help us because I explained there would be 4 people riding in the car. They could not do anything for me. The car was very uncomfortable for a 6-hour drive. It would be fine for a 20-year-old but for our age, not the best car.

It was clean and ready to go when I got there.It was confusing on the e-mail from Kayak - it said I had to take a shuttle, but the Hertz counter was in the airport & that is where I picked up the car.

TerribleMy car was not available for the 2nd week in a row. I had a reservation for a car weeks in advance. I went on my lunch break and they told me I'd have to wait 3-5 hours... How am I supposed to pay for the car if I can't go to work. The only thing the representative could "do for me" was put me in a luxury vehicle for an extra charge a day. Not my problem, guys. I should not have had to pay extra for that. Ridiculous. I just went to cancel my next trip with them due to change of plans for this weekend (it's 5 days away) and they want to charge me $50 cancellation fee. I'm sick of it. Not using Hertz again...

Didn't have my car and left me strandedI needed a car to get to the airport so I ordered one from Enterprise. Half hour before pickup they informed me they didn't have a car for me and would not pick me up to bring me into town. Had to walk 2.5 miles IN THE RAIN to rent a uhaul at twice the price to make my flight. Offered little slice and nothing to make it right.

It was like that one Seinfeld bit...Technically, I did get a rental car, which is the essence of the service, I guess. It had wheels, went forward and back, etc.-Rental car available almost 2 hours late, which caused a ripple effect of delays throughout the trip. If the pilots of our plane hadn't agreed to take some of the members of my party to their meetings, it would have been a disaster. --I reserved an economy car, but was given a mini-van. I usually don't mind being given an upgrade for free, but this was a little drastic. The fuel costs twice as much and I have no experience parking such a boat. -- It was dirty with questionably aired tires. We were running so late that we asked the agent to just give us the dirty car, but note that I would have preferred an on time and clean car. -- We were at a somewhat separate part of the airport, where the rental cars were supposed to be when we arrived. They weren't AND we couldn't get anyone on the phone, over maybe like 5 tries. -- The agent working probably was doing his best, but he was understaffed and simply didn't have cars available to give us. Basically no resources to help us. Having this service work is crucial in a town that doesn't have a bunch of transit and taxi options.
