NoCar had no spare tire, tire blew up were on hold on 4 different phones at same time, nobody answer, stranded in the middle of nowhere. After 5 hours standed had to take a lift from 429 to Gainesville (1hr 45 min) $179.00. Didn't get my deposit back. Spoke to a Manager (he even spelled his name for me) when my husband and son went to give the keys back, nobody knew the Manager. No papaerwork at all, blaming COVID-19 for this.

Easy to drop off the car at the end of rental periodThe car being rented had dirty windows, smelly, and lacked floor mats. The staff wanted me to sign off on the paperwork about the car's condition before I had a chance to inspect the car

Getting tire trouble handled was a messWe were fortunately upgraded at pickup to an intermediate SUV, which was helpful because it meant we had a little more room to work with for our trip for the holidays.We had a slow leak in a tire. I spent an hour on the phone with roadside service trying to find a way to get the tire fixed, and was recommended a tire shop 25 minutes away. I called two places that were closer to me in the next 2 minutes and found that one of them could see me right away and went there. They checked the tire, determined that it needed replaced, but didn't have the replacement in stock. They filled it so that it could carry me for a while longer. I stopped at an off-airport location to see if they could replace the vehicle and was told they couldn't access my rental information because I was renting from an airport location. Why in the world are they on different systems that can't interact? Two days later I called roadside again and the person could not get ahold of the local airport location but could see their inventory and told me that a vehicle should be available if I show up and tell them we tried to call ahead and I needed a vehicle. They did have some SUVs but they were slotted for pickup later in the day, so they sent me off with a mini-van instead. This was an acceptable replacement for me and I was just glad to have the issue finally resolved. The whole experience was quite overwhelming, and I would hope that such a simple issue could be resolved more quickly and easily.

Drop Off Location- Receipt'sFriendly StaffThe Staff didn't have knowledge in knowing how to close out my rental agreement, and printing a receipt out for me (the customer) when asked to do so. At first, I was told that I would have to call the location that I picked the rental up from to get a receipt, printed or e-mail. After a twenty minute conversation, someone from the Staff was able to produce a printed receipt.

Operating Hours are not long enough at Enterprise Gainesville Airport-quick and fast check-inMy flight arrived at 11:00 p.m. to Gainesville but the Enterprise counter closes at 11:00 p.m. So, I had to come back the next morning (wasted 2 cab rides and time). Counter should close at 11:30 p.m.

No issues. Did a pick up and drop off with two different locations 5 hours apart. Very smooth and Hertz has always been easy. Defiantly check the off airport sites for cheaper rates

Crappy car and rude employees, who could ask for more?I know I got an inexpensive rental, but why does Hertz offer such inferior cars? But the rudeness of employees at pickup and drop off was the most offensive. Where to you find such people. The experience left me not wanting to use Hertz in the future.

I had a tire problem with my rental. It was determined not safe for my long travel back to SC from Gainesville. I was initially told to go to Gainesville Airport for a switch out of vehichles. Upon my arrival there, there were no cars available and several people waiting for returning vehicles. I called the roadside assistance and after a good while told I would be able to have a car guaranteed but would need to drive to Ocala Airport ( 47 more minutes away). Upon arrival there I was told there was no message for them from roadside assistance and there were no cars available. After two hours there, a car was returned and I was on my way. All representatives were courteous but said they run into this all the time. Cars are promised without checking with the location. This is poor communication. I was also charged $43+ over my original quote. When I called they said it was for gas. I filled the tank minutes before turning in ( a day early) and the representative was again courteous and said I would be refunded which is the right solution. I would like to ask for compensation for the runaround for the better part of a day on this trip. Again all reps were courteous but your departments are not communicating with each other.

Pickup was a breeze. Representative at pickup location was extremely helpful and polite. Had no problems. Drop off was a much different situation. The representative that helped us was quite rude and had an attitude with everyone that approached her first assistance. We had the same representative when we returned from our cruise to rent another one way vehicle. She had an even nastier attitude and almost refused to rent me the vehicle without a credit card. I presented her with the debit card that I originally used for the first rental with no problems. She claimed that my credit based off that debit card was not good enough however there were plenty of funds in there to cover the rental. She never even requested my social security number so I'm not sure how she pulled a credit report. She definitely did not have authorization for that.

They didn’t have the car I reservedNothingThe fact that I reserved a VAN and was told at the 11th hour that they didn’t have one and they were giving me an SUV which didn’t work for me. If I wanted an SUV, I would have reserved an SUV. My reservation was for a VAV for a reason. Terrible experience.

I made the reservation for 3pm pick up at the Hilton, Budget location in Gainesville, FL. The reservation was cheaper than picking up at the Gainesville Airport. When I arrived, the desk was closed. I feel like I should not have been able to make a reservation for a time the desk would not be open. I called Budget and spoke to a representative that was able to move my reservation to the Gainesville Airport and confirmed that they had a car available. This was going to be $40 more expensive, but as we were without options, we agreed. We drove 20 minutes to the airport only to be told by the Budget representative that they had no cars and that he "didn't know what to tell me". I asked if there was anything else I could do, and that the Budget rep on the phone had confirmed that there was a car for me, to which he replied again, "I don't know what to tell you." I ended up walking counter to counter at the airport and asking for cars. I ended up having to pay twice as much as my original reservation for a car with your competitor. This could not have been a more negative experience.

enjoyed our chevy cruzeThe car was affordable. The gentleman we picked the car up from, while not outgoing, got the job done. The back seat was a little cramped, but it wasn't considered a "luxury car," so I guess that was to be expected.There was a faint odor of cigarettes in the car.

NEVER AGAIN!Not a darned thing!I was provided by KAYAK a date, location and time to pick up an Avis rental car. When I arrived on time at the designated location the Avis rental counter was un-attended and the rental counter was closed. When counting Avis by telephone Avis was 100% un-cooperative and un-helpful in assisting me to secure an Avis rental car from an alternative Avis location. Fortunately, albeit "last minute", I luckily found a rental vehicle from one of Avis' competitors. As a result of this incident, I will NEVER AGAIN use Avis - or KAYAK.

Great service and learned a tip!This agency called me in the morning to let me know I may not have a car at the time I requested it. I ended up getting a car but the overall tip is to never trust the call centers and make sure you talk to someone at the location to ensure they have a car, especially during peak rental periods.
