Cons: The counter was not open at 8 (their published opening time) and I had to rent from another counter.

Cons: After the reservation was placed and confirmed I was told the location did not have any cars to rent. I took my business elsewhere. You cannot do business with a location you cannot trust.
Mar 8 2017
Cons: Apparently they close at 4pm on Saturdays and the clerk was extremely rude because my flight landed at 407pm. She had a major attitude problem.I will never rent from Hertz again. I'd pay extra and go somewhere else. Also, she didn't go over the vehicle with me and once I got to the car it had scratches and dents. I made sure to take pictures with a time stamp so I wouldn't get charged. And yes, they do put a $200 hold on a card and take their sweet time releasing the funds back to your account.

I had a 4:00pm pickup scheduled - counter closed a
Cons: I was unable to get my pre-paid car. I was unable to get any help from Hertz or priceline at the time. The experience was very poor for me. I would hesitate to use Kayak or Hertz again.

60 anniversary Peoria trip
Pros: The pick-up and drop-off were the easiest I have ever experienced. The lady at the counter was courteous and helpful. The car was easy to find and return.
Pros: I picked up the SUV at the airport and they required me to sign the sheet that has the checklist for any damage to the vehicle? This is before I even see the vehicle that is parked a few hundred yards from the building? They need to have a person drive it up to the building and go over it before driving away! Once i got it to the peoples house I was picking up, I opened the back gate and noticed some previous damage from another rental?? NOW WHAT AM I TO DO ?? How do I prove I did not do it since I have the vehicle in my posession? A real bummer! I did buy the insurance, which by the way, is way too expensive..if they charge it to that insurance it will be fraud ?? Also the vehicle was very dirty and water spotted on the exterior which in turn makes it difficult to see any damage before driving out of the lot!!

Worst experience we have ever had with a rental ca
Pros: I didn't like anything.
Cons: Customer service is awful. My husband had to fly to Peoria for a funeral at the last minute we had a car reserved. The computers at Budget Rental were not working and instead of working with him, they refused to rent him a car even though they had our credit card on file and he had the credit card in his possession they refused renting a car . he even offered them cash.
He had to call a family member in the middle of the night because his flight got in late, to have that family member come and pick him up. I tried to talk to the woman on the phone to give her another credit card because they said they needed to charge more money than what the car actually was on to our account to pre-approve it. She was rude and unhelpful. Worst experience I've ever had with getting a car and my husband ended up having to rely on his family to get around town because he did not end up renting the car... we gave up. We didn't have a choice really ; when I tried to call customer service to complain or to solve the problem, they said their computers were down and they could not help me, that I needed to call back later. At that point it was way too late. We will never ever ever ever used Budget Cars again.
Basically, because they could not process our credit card because of their own problems with computers, my husband was left without transportation in a time of family crises. I can't even express my disgust in budget car rental and also delta airlines, who also was having computer problems and still has our credit card tied up with pending charges for tickets we never purchased. Also, who could not fix it. I remember when companies used to bend over backwards to be helpful when a family member passed away.

The only rental car that I have had to take to car
Pros: Comfortable car. Good price
Cons: Sunflower seeds and food in cup holders. Filthy dash and inside windshield. The guys at the car wash showed me their black paper towels after cleaning inside windshield.
Cons: Wasn't allowed to rent a car because I do not have a major credit card, even though I had already pre-paid for the entire rental up front.
Ended up leaving without a rental car, causing my trip to be ruined.
