5.2 OkayFeb 1 2020
Pros: Employees were unable to explain about the toll pass, i was never told that dropping off the car at a later time was going to cost me 49 dollars more.
10.0 ExcellentMar 29 2018
The Nissan Versa was a very nice car. Cruise control was appreciatedPros: Very comfortable Nice size Cruse control Simple controlsCons: none
4.4 OkayJan 12 2018
Told us we were good to go, that we DID NOT need a credit card..Pros: The car was fine and once I got it 2 hours after I was supposed to all went well. Only cost @ $20 to fill up which was good.Cons: Hertz told us over the phone after we made the reservation we were good to pick up the car at 5 pm and we specifically told them we do not have a credit card and the lady said it would be fine we were good to go. They charged our bank account for the rental. When we got there the guy tells us we can't get the car because we don't have a credit card to put on file. I had to call a family member to come to the airport and bring me one to put on file and I was two hours late leaving. This was a terrible and stressful experience, embarrassing and a bad way to start a business trip. And to top it all off the extremely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything to help us non-customer service Hertz offered was pathetic. The only way I'll ever use this company again is if someone pays me to.
10.0 ExcellentNov 9 2017
Hertz is the bestPros: Compared to the other rental places their vehicles are well maintained and in better condition.Cons: It would be more convenient if they opened earlier than 9.
2.0 MediocreFeb 25 2017
Buyer BewarePros: I liked the Ford Focus Hatch... I think it's by far the best small car money can buy. Prior to this rental I have always been pleased with my experience at Hertz.Cons: My experience at the counter was sub par. The group was either inexperienced or unwilling to help. They threatened to upcharge at every opportunity. The mykey (I blame Ford partially) was locked and I was unable to listen to audiobooks over a week long rental. I called hertz and went to several locations with no resolutions. This weekly rental was saddening because Hertz did not fix it while it lasted. They wanted to charge me more. I tried saving a few bucks and waisted hundreds in efficiency. I pray that you have a better experience with them. Pick up and drop off was a nightmare... the car was washed and the interior was NOT cleaned. They refused to come out to the vehicle to inspect it and didn't have an answer for me about TX tolls via tags
8.8 ExcellentJul 6 2016
Cons: Parking lot is unkempt and confusing
8.0 ExcellentNov 29 2015
Pros: Chrysler was a great car

Pros: Part of the staff were helpful, the part were terribleCons: When we got there, they didn’t have a premium SUV, the biggest was a 5 passenger, since there were 6 of us that wAsnt going to work. They didn’t offer a solution, told us we would have to take two cars. Finally a van magically appeared. Lots of my time was wasted!!! I will never ever use kayak again

2.0 MediocreJun 22 2020

2.0 MediocreMay 27 2020
Pros: There was nothing about the experience with budget that was even expectable.Cons: The right car available. Not getting a vehicle that smelt like marijuana and maintenance light not being on.
4.0 OkayJan 27 2020
Pros: Seemingly friendly staffCons: The vehicle was awe full with no Nacional capabilities and very little utility in general. What vehicle doesn’t have the ability to at least connect a personal phone for navigation.
9.2 ExcellentJun 6 2017
Pros: extended and dropped off in killeen.Cons: didnt get my recipt right away
2.0 MediocreOct 18 2016
No car available....Cons: I received a confirmation number for my rental and attempted to call the local office at the airport to confirm. I called the local number and was eventually connected with a call center in some foreign land, I'm guessing. They couldn't give me any further information on my rental. I arrived at the rental booth and was informed by the unconcerned-acting attendant that there were no cars available. I spent $200 in cab fares over the duration of my trip. I'll give another rental company a shot at my business next time and see if they can pull it off.
6.0 GoodAug 29 2016
Pros: The rental car was excellent, the time I had to wait almost 2hrs, they did give me 10%, discount but it threw us off by 2 hours, waiting on a car. We still will continue to rent from budget.
