10.0 ExcellentApr 2 2021
Pros: Offered drop off at airport for very reasonable price!Cons: Returned at 12 to get help with something on car I did not know how to work, they closed at 12 instead of 2 as it stated on website. Some poor couple Was there to pick up their rental and could not
2.0 MediocreDec 31 2020
Pros: NothingCons: I reserved a pickup in the internet. When I showed up to pick it up there was no pickup. This caused me a lot of problems. If they didn’t have a pickup they should not have allowed me to reserve one. Staff was rude
9.6 ExcellentFeb 19 2020
Pros: Friendly staff at Clearwater pickup location. Easy drop off at Orlando.Cons: Nothing really
2.0 MediocreJul 7 2019
Cons: They took my reservation, then on the way to the location to pick. Up, they called and cancelled me due to lack of cars. At that point, we already cancelled our flight and Checked out of the hotel.
10.0 ExcellentMar 24 2019
Pros: Staff was very helpful upgraded me to a mini van due to a car not available, the van was only 3/4 full but he charged me $10 less than quoted drop off was a breezeCons: I will go back there to rent a car, prices were way better than the airport, and drop off was just drop the keys, a very nice man.

8.0 ExcellentMar 28 2017
Pros: Service was prompt, late pickup allowed for me to save paying for a dayCons: Gave my car type away, had to get one that was smaller than what I reserved
7.6 GoodJan 16 2017
Car had a flatPros: I liked how easy it was to swap out the car with the flat for a different car, but.....Cons: ...we discovered the flat the morning we were to fly home, and we called the rental place and they weren't very helpful, short of "bring it here to get a different car". The tire was COMPLETELY flat, so we added a little air and crossed our fingers. Luckily we made it.

10.0 ExcellentJun 26 2021
Pros: Everything was smooth and easyCons: Nothing
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
Pros: Nothing- never got the car-- the staff were completely rude- the telephone staff tried to triple my agreed rate and Priceline was no help!Cons: everything. I will never use Hertz or Priceline again -- And I have used Priceline since its inception. NEVER AGAIN ]
10.0 ExcellentFeb 27 2021
Pros: The professional service and courteous help dropping it off and picking it up.
3.2 MediocreSep 13 2020
Pros: NothingCons: We had rented an intermediate SUV however when we arrived they said they only had compact or large SUVs so they told us that we had secured a compact SUV. To avoid the hassle of cancelling the insurance pre-purchased we paid more to get a larger car as they would not provide the larger SUV to us in the agreed upon price. It felt like a bait and switch. The customer service was horrible and the car that we rented was dirty. There were wrappers, kids bracelets in cup holders, and in the seat back pockets. There was dirt and sand everywhere in the back and in the trunk. To top it all off the car smelled like smoke that had been covered up-not ideal for an asthmatic. I had to use my inhaler within 15 minutes of being in the car! It was a terrible experience!
9.2 ExcellentJun 26 2019
Pros: Drop off super easy. Pricing is superb compared to TPA, and other Clearwater based rental companiesCons: Pickup took a little extra time because only one rep for counter & phone service
2.0 MediocreMay 24 2019
Cons: K.ayak allowed me to make a reservation for a time the location was not even open so I had to cancel and rebook.
4.8 OkayMay 5 2019
Pros: Was a nice vehicle.Cons: Who ever takes care care of cleaning and preparing the vehicle for the next client is sub-standard. Vehicle was not clean inside or outside (cleaned it myself). No windshield washer fluid. Oil life indicator repeatability showed change oil soon. Tire showed major wear on them.
5.6 OkayFeb 15 2019
Pros: The drop off was easyCons: The car wasn't ready. I had to wait for it to be cleaned in which they did a quick job so the roof of the car had dirty footprints & handprints on it, there was hair on the head rests, & the back seat were still wet from them JUST cleaning it. I felt very uncomfortable putting my children in the car
6.0 GoodApr 30 2018
Untrained repPros: When we got the car it took 40 min the person didn’t know what he was doing. Poor service. When we returned the car that person was extremely competent. That’s why 3 starsCons: Returning the car very competent guy.
6.8 GoodApr 6 2018
Pros: It was a very smooth pick-up and drop-offCons: We rented a 7 passenger van for a week. The van was not clean and the inside of the windows were very dirty, gps rings on windows and hand and finger prints etc. it also smelled of very strong cigarette smoke

10.0 ExcellentJun 8 2021
Cons: They need more help to get people in and out but the two they had was great they deserve a raise
2.0 MediocreApr 14 2021
Cons: They could have a car I reserved, or since they didn't have it they could apologize and offer me some compensation
8.8 ExcellentJun 28 2019
Pros: I did not have to wait long to pick up my rental in Clearwater. The price was very good for a three day rental in a tourist area during peak season also.Cons: We had reserved a compact car, but when we got to the counter, the guy told me all they had was a pickup truck. It was nice and drove well, but was a little difficult to put our luggage in the back seat. We would not have had any room if we had a third or fourth person with us.
9.6 ExcellentNov 2 2018
Amazing service, awesome car!Pros: I was well taken care of, staff was friendly and nice. Went over the fees and procedures to avoid extra charges. No hidden fees the car was clean and drove really smooth.Cons: When I first got in the car it smelled like cigarettes.
4.0 OkaySep 14 2018
Smoking carPros: The people were very nice, and helpful. The car was blowing white smoke Everytime I accelerate, which made me feel very insecure about reaching my destination since I was getting to a plane ad had no time to spareCons: Richard in Clearwater was pleasant with his assistance.
