8.8 ExcellentOct 6 2018
Mixed reviewPros: Attendants were polite and picked us up and delivered us back to the residence.Cons: Didn’t like that they couldn’t help me with the toll payment problem. (I didn’t have all the change for a unmanned coins only toll booth on the Illinois tollway. I’m from California. Upon returning the car, I informed the enterprise staff who referred me to the 800# Enterprise problem solver which they said could walk me through paying the toll online, but that person couldn’t help. Also I returned the car with more gas than it had when I received it. (1/4 tank over), I thought they would reimburse me for the difference but just gave me a business card saying I could get the gas credited on the next rental but I rarely rent cars. I dont think the business card would be honored in the future anyway.

2.4 MediocreFeb 3 2019
Pros: The employee at the drop off end in Port St. Lucie was pleasant and seemed to know, and enjoy, his job.Cons: Car interior, windows and trunk were not clean. Staff in St. Charles office were not helpful. Mischarged for rental despite Kayak confirmation, and spent an hour over 2 calls trying to get it fixed. Got to FL to turn in car and found out the car they gave me the wrong car in St Charles IL!
2.0 MediocreJan 28 2019
Pros: N/ACons: The initial car was left unclean and appeared to have animal hair left in the vehicle. One of our family members is extremely allergic to pets. When we asked the employee they understood why we were concerned but it took an additional 90 minutes to produce another vehicle & charges additional $110!
2.0 MediocreJan 23 2018
Never Hertz againPros: A week before the reservation, I made an alteration to my reservation directly through hertz website to change to a bigger car and an extra day. I was quoted an extra 30 bucks which is understandable. Within two hours from that change, which is still a week away, i called hertz to change back to my original reservation because I realized I didn’t need that extra day. I was ready to accept the $30 that I was charged because of changing the reservation multiple times. To my surprise, the rep on the phone said that I will be charged an extra 50 dollars for that change. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? But if I cancel the reservation I will not be charged for anything? What kind of business is Hertz running and Kayak backing up? I cancelled everything and called my local Avis and got more for my money. Wait no, I got the same car for 30 dollars cheaper. Call your local dealer, they will have better rates.Cons: Never hertz again.
