Cons:

Cost was much higher than it was at booking. I was promised a Hyundai or something similar I got a Ford Fiesta. This car was seemingly okay until I realized I couldn't adjust the seat. My neck became extremely stiff and sore from the hours I spent driving. In addition I was unable to connect my phone to the car to play music. I tried with Bluetooth as well as a cord. Overall I wasn't impressed and will be going back to renting from Enterprise.

Pros:

We had to reschedule our reservation and in doing so we got a cheaper rate Woo Hoo! We had a Nissan with a rear view video camera that appeared when you place the vehicle in reverse and we had a push button ignition.

Cons:

The location was not stated in my confirmation email that the Budget car rental was located inside the Holiday Inn. We just kept driving around and missed my pick up time at 2:00. We finally figured it out after 3:00 and Budget closed at three so we had to reschedule. There are no signs posted up except a really small sign that's only visible once your up close to it.

Vehicles need to be ready before customers arrive. The customer service when returning cars could be better. I was passively accused of being responsible for a missing hub cap but the car was given to me in that condition. The vehicle also seemed to need maintenance by the sound it made when driving.

Pros:

Nothing! The staff in Landover told me adding a second driver was free if I was married, which I am. Then when I dropped off the car they charged me for it. I reminded them what they told me and they said it was an error on their part but would not credit me. They should know their own policies and should have made things right by not charging me for their error!!

Cons:

Staff should know Hertz policies and make their errors correct by not charging renters for their errors!! Staff told me to call customer service and they would not credit me either. I asked for a supervisor and she told me the supervisor would tell me the same thing. Very bad customer service. I read a review that said do not rent from this location but I gave it a try. I won’t make that mistake again!
