Not interested in customer service just money
Pros: The car was just okay, expected.
Cons: At arrival after a long wait, customer service was unhelpful and even denied my credit card covered insurance (I have a platinum card that includes coverage) I then showed my own insurance but they still said I had no option but to buy additional insurance, I've never heard this. Then was told the car wasn't ready and still had to wait. Upon returning the car customer service again was rude, slow and extremely picky charging for any small thing they could.

Insurances and levies not included in the Kayak qu

Best way to see South Africa
Pros: We were upgraded from our basic rental into a small SUV for no extra charge, it was clean and in great shape and took us all around South Africa no problem. We had a USB plug in for our phones which was nice to listen to directions or our own music.
Cons: Nothing was wrong with the car or service, the only thing I could suggest is letting the renters know about the spare tire in case of emergencies.

Hard sell on the insurance.
Pros: Reasonably priced rental. Fast service at the counter.
Cons: My credit card company provides insurance coverage for car rentals. Hertz told me to purchase their insurance or they will place a "hold" on my credit card for the FULL VALUE of the vehicle USD 12,000! After a week I am still waiting for the final bill and the explanation for the extra charges they tacked on.

New Insurance 'scam' by Hertz SA
Pros: Good vehicle, clean and spacious
Cons: I have car rental insurance provided by my credit card provider, yet if you do not buy the Hertz insurance, they put a hold on your cc of 50% value for the car! Never heard of such a (crazy) thing... So even if they're the 'cheapest' provider online, once you get there you will have to pay a lot more. I wish I had known that so I could have gone elsewhere.

Do NOT rent from Dollar or Thrifty - Bad customer
Cons: The rental was done by Thrifty. They did not have the car that we reserved at the time we arrived. They gave us an upgrade, but wanted it back the next day. We were driving four hours East and the car could not be picked up. So we arranged to have it picked up at our next stop 2.5 hour away at the air port. That morning I received a call and arranged that we could exchange the car between 5-6 pm at the house. We had to go out of our way to be back at the hotel at 5 we waited until 5:45 gave them a call and they said that they would send someone out, it would take 2.5 hours. We had dinner reservation at 6:30 so that didn't work They finally answer the phone, and said they were too busy to answer the phone. The next day we gave up and drove the car back to the airport to return the car. Phone Call = $50 Time lost from our vacation = 5 hours Last time renting from Thrifty or Dollar

Bad service
Pros: Price
Cons: Poor courtesy (no smile etc.) Car was smaller than anticipated: we booked a car for 5 adults and I would say we received a car for 4 adults or 2 adults+3 children at best. No GPS available for rent.

Alright until the return
Pros: Comfortable car
Cons: Despite having topped off the tank before returning the vehicle we were charged for an additional 13 liters of petrol. I'm not entirely sure how driving 190 KM in a Chevy Aveo we could have used 38 liters of gas...In the future I am avoiding this company.

Good car, good price but terrible service
Pros: The car was new and worked well. And the price was very fair.
Cons: The service was terrible at the Cape Town office. When I arrived to pick up the car, there was a line going out the door from the rental office because they did not have any cars at that location. They told me to pay and wait, which I did. After 5 hours of waiting, they tried to give me a worse car than I had paid for. The only way to get the actual car for which I had paid was to come back the next morning, which I unhappily did.
5.2 Okay
Feb 9 2016
Cons: Kayak allowed me to reserve a car at 7am. However, when I arrived at the pick-up location, they said the car wouldn't be ready until 9 or 9:30. The agent was pretty rude and said my only options were to wait or take a cab to the airport and pick it up there.
4.4 Okay
Dec 15 2016
Poor customer service
Pros: They didn't have the car ready when I booked it so I had to change it (all online b/c they wouldn't help). When I did I was told I would get a VW Polo sedan but if ended up with Dustu
Cons: The drop off was efficient

Smooth, efficient, friendly operation

Nov 15 2016
Pros: Cape Town airport location staff where I ended up returning the car due to circumstances below were very friendly, accommodating and understanding to my situation. However the original location was not even open during their stated hours.
Cons: The location chosen for return stated operating times but when I arrived during those hours they were closed and there was nobody there. I had to go to the nearest airport to return the car. The price charged is also almost double than the original amount stated at the booking with no explanation why or even a receipt. This is not acceptable.

Cape Town Rentalk
Pros: Picked up downtown and dropped off at airport
Cons: Had to go into my home e-mail to print off confirmation as they said LDW insurance was mandatory and they wanted proof i had a contract without taking the insurance. No final paperwork was provided at the airport and I will have to check my credit card receipts to confirm the deposit was refunded.
