Staff was very friendly and very accommodatingThe rental counter is in the hotel lobby, which I felt was a bit too busy.
9.6 ExcellentJul 6 2019
Staff was friendly, fast, and I liked the car they gave me.Only things that would have made it better is (1) if they could have picked me up and dropped me off from rental place; and (2) if they had running water to wash the car with before they gave to me. But wasn’t bad at all.

The attendant left early so I called Avis and was told I needed to return next morning and my reservation would be adjusted with apologies. I arrived next morning and the same attendant insisted he didn’t leave early the day before and said they was no reservation and I ahead to make another reservation at a much higher rate. Total scam. Extremely rude. I tried calling Avis and of course the 1 800 number had a pre recording to call back on Monday. I had no alternative but to be robbed. If you ever call Avis don’t get off the phone until you receive your confirmation email. Absolute nonsense.

I reserved a suburban, which was confirmed the day before. I arrived on time to pick it up and they didn't have one. They did offer me a different vehicle to rent but it wasn't what I needed.
4.8 OkayAug 11 2020
Picked up the car and it was given a quick run through with a rag. Definitely was not cleaned. Cup holders still had rings from drinks. Seats were dirty. Went a few miles and the tire pressure light came on. Was contacted by someone who said they would offer a days credit. Never received the credit

They made reservations without having vehicles available. And front feet worker wasn’t friendly at all.
1.9 HorribleJun 24 2021
Beware from this location. I booked a 7-seater SUV, but when I reached there, the person there offered me 5-seater rav4. He kept saying that it was also an SUV and I said I specifically wanted 7-seater. He made me realize that's there was no point to argue with him. I just booked a highlander from Budget in Westfield (awesome service). Only regret I have is I wasted an hour here and I would never rent from this location.

First of all, I booked for SUV but they provided me Dodge Caravan (VAN). I contacted Hertz corporate support couple of times but they advise to call local facility without giving any proper resolution. The next morning (Saturday) went to office and found they were closed on weekend. So I had to deal with the VAN that I didn’t book. I registered SUV for a reason and they ruined my trip. I spoke to local Hertz manager when went to return the VAN . He tried to convince me without acknowledging that was their fault and was questioning why I felt uncomfortable with the given car. Just not argue with him, accepted $65.00 vouchers. This is the worst experience I ever have with the car rental company named HERTZ. Wish them good luck.

Took a while to get the car. Car smelled like cigarettes.
7.2 GoodJun 27 2018
Quick once I found it.The location is hard to find, the booth is tucked away inside a hotel lobby. No exterior signage that was clear to find the location, had to ask multiple people if they knew where the desk was and most people did not.

Reserved, confirmed rental ignored. "No car availaNOTHINGAfter reserving, confirming and entering all payment, driver's license info, etc., received a call 3 hours before scheduled pickup time that a car was unavailable! Left stranded requiring me to take Uber for transportation. Will NEVER use Hertz again!!! Refer this review to Dane Larsen, VP, KAYAK.

Car rental insurance in Carteret

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Carteret car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Carteret.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Carteret car rental.
