I was not able to use my debit card to rent the car. It was frustrating to not have been told upfront. We ended up canceling our reservation because I don't own a debit card.More openness about payment policy.

Nothing.Went to pick up the car to find out there were no cars available. Spent over $40 in Lyft just to end up careless for a 5day trip we planned months ago. Complete waste of time. The staff was rude and didn’t care.

The process was very quick and easy!Someone had smoked in it previously and I was not made aware. There were attempts to cover it up, but it still just smelled like cigarettes and air freshener. It was pretty bad.
4.4 OkayAug 13 2019
The car was nice, the clerk was friendly.Scheduled online. When I arrived, there were no cars available, and I had to wait approximately an hour for a car. The car was clean on the outside, but the inside had some spills that weren't wiped up and smelled like marijuana. No after hours drop off instructions were provided, closed at 6:00.

The first agent I spoke with was boderline rude. I was the only person in line and was waiting patiently. She sent me across the airport for a facemask before she would speak to me. Under normal circumstances not a big deal. That day I was dealing with a sprained ankle. Not a fun walk. Second issue, the Rogue we got had no running headlights. We discovered this the second night there when we attempted to drive home, in the dark. Ended up calling my brother to come get us and locked the car up in a convenience store parking lot. Third was driving back to the airport to get the car replaced. I bought the tank of gas. The clerk initially stated I would have to buy another tank of gas. Thankfully, she understood the issue and I did not have to pay for another tank of gas. The second female clerk I spoke to was better, nicer, and much more pleasant than the first one.
2.0 MediocreNov 18 2020
NothingRude and unhelpful staff. Nobody available during posted business hours. They may cancel your reservation even if you prepaid without giving you notice.

Be wary of insuranceLast minute rental to drive to comfort tx was easy to book and fast to drive of the lotThe insurance cost more than the car rental and was charged for two days,personally I would like to see a flat rate introduced to start saving people money.

Nothing. Everything about this experience has been the worst I’ve ever encountered.My rental car was given away with no alternatives, I had to pay double to reserve one elsewhere, I then am over charged in addition to being accused of having the vehicle involved in an accident.
4.0 OkayJun 16 2021
Was advised on day of vacation that our vehicle was not available. Call was disconnected by Gwen and then Kim @ Hertz Customer Service. Husband had to get a ride to the Hertz location in Corpus Christi TX to reach a human re: our situation. Customer Service Rep @ counter could not get our card to swipe correctly and said my husband could not have the car once he got there. Another person helped and swiped card on another credit card machine & rental was finally released to my husband. We have a special needs child and had not transportation until this matter was FINALLY resolved.We reserved a rental 2 weeks prior - it needed to be ready upon our arrival. Customer service should not disconnect callers. Rep at Hertz counter was unfriendly.

The pick up was a disaster but the drop off was okThe cost, staff professionalism, better communication and not have to wait so long for CS on the phone.
4.0 OkayApr 6 2021
The vehicle was not cleaned inside or out. It had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke inside. The staff was not helpful at all and said that no other vehicle was available. I should have canceled and requested a refund!!The paperwork clearly stated the vehicle was a no smoking vehicle AND that there is a $400 cleaning fee! I'd like to know if these clowns charged that to the previous renters!

I never ordered this rental!Verifying actual people and confirmations
4.0 OkayMar 29 2021
It was a surprise that on top of the payment I owed $80 in taxes. This negated the benefit of this transaction vs other reservations. Then, my flight arrived at 9PM. Hertz was closed. I could not get a rental car for one night as none were available so I had to Uber for $60 more. So not reserving here next time.

7.2 GoodAug 18 2019
Make sure you have a major credit card to put a $200 hold after you already paid for it online. Didnt tell me that and I got dropped off at the airport to pick up the vehicle. Stranded.

Extra chargeCharge you an extra 10 at your inconvenience after you sign off a different amount...want to make that extra buck with no rhyme or reason? Taking my buisness elsewhere.
2.0 MediocreAug 12 2017
Lack of information and waste of timePicking the car and reservation was easy and the customer service woman was awesome, if I had warning on the deposit this would have been an amazing experienceThere was lack of information online about there being a double your cost deposit so I went unprepared and I live 30 min from the nearest pick up. If it would have been posted online that you'll need double your total in a deposit I would have gotten things prepared with my credit card. Ended up not getting the rental and cancelling plans to see family I haven't seen in 7 years.

3.2 MediocreNov 10 2016
CluelessNot much really other than the location of the desk in the Corpus Christi airportThe rude customer service, inability to work with them to correct mistakes that they made. Some examples include, being told to give the damage sheet to the guard on the way out... there was no guard nor anyone around. I told them I wanted to extend my reservation. I was instructed to call in later with that. When I did, I was told I had to drive 4 hours back to the location I picked up the vehicle in order to change my original reservation. I followed the instructions of the desk attendant at the desk of pick up. I was then told since I cannot drive 8 hours (4 hours each way) out of my way, I would be charged a late fee.

Total lack of communicationThe two locations i rented from, San Antonio and Corpus Christi, have zero communication between them. I believe this is the main reason for my having to pay nearly double the estimated rate. When i tried to explain this to the Corpus Christi location, they had no idea or explanation. Truly horrible

Ludvick was contacted multiple times because of our late flight and connections that mostly fail when doing this route - and she provided OUTSTANDING customer service each time. We expected to arrive late and her willingness to ensure we got our rental regardless of our difficulties - was more than we could have asked for. Really helpful and put our minds at ease. The car had a faint smell - we are non-smokers and although it wasn't strong - someone had previously smoked in the car. The cleaning of that smoke odor (whenever it was done) was good but not great - should use some air freshener. The car, otherwise, was flawless and got us to destination without any issues. If we can do business again in Corpus Christi - I strongly urge everyone to use the location where Ludvick works - she is focused on customer satisfaction. 100% THANK YOU!

The desk agent was less than friendly and I was told that the car I wanted wasn't available at the location I booked it and would have to go pick one up at the airport or wait 3-4 hours for one to arrive at the current location. Drove the 20 minutes (out of our way) to the airport to pick up a car. The car we received was filthy and smelled so bad we drove for the first 30 minutes with the windows down. Following our drop off- I received a bill for the gas for the car from the first location to the airport location- which I was not told I would be responsible for and seemed like since I was doing them a favor, should not have been charged. We were also charge $300 for something I can't figure out and when we call to talk to someone, we are disconnected or receive a busy signal. So frustrating!
2.0 MediocreMay 29 2021
The rental was fine. They charged it to our account but it was $200 moreThe only thing we had problems with is cost. We were not charged what we were shown on the computer
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2021
That I booked a truck and it would be ready for pick up.The customer service at the rental place could of been a lot better. Having a truck available would of definitely been a plus. Not being frowned upon fir using a third party agency to book what should of been my rental. Having the truck I reserved or anything to accommodate the size of the vehicle I rented. Again the customer service sucked.
