3.9 MediocreSep 5 2021
Booked this can at Hertz on Friday morning for a one-way out of nyc on Saturday since the trains were still not running after tropical storm Ida. The good thing is that the local Hertz counter called on Friday evening to say “they would not be honoring this reservation”, because they were completely booked. Frustrating that Kayak let us reserve it in the first place because they should have known 24 hrs prior they didn’t have any cars.
7.9 GoodAug 11 2021
Excellent customer service but very limited amount of cars available at this location, no options for upgrade. Also, be mindful of the automatic holding fees.
1.9 HorribleAug 10 2021
Absolutely NOTHING! I will never rent a car due to the experience I had with this recent rental. On your behalf it was not easy and on Hertz behalf it was even worse. Staff was EXTREMELY unprofessional, service was atrocious. I rather fly and if I can't, then I rather not go. Renting a car due to this experience will never be an option.

Staff was courteous and direct about additional charges and rental rules. Check-in/drop-off were both quick and easy exchanges.Price is always a factor and while I do feel we got a lot for our dollar, and appreciate the unexpected (free) car upgrade we got, I think the company overall can continue to make rentals more affordable - especially for within-state travel.
2.0 MediocreFeb 7 2021
The whole experience of pickup and drop off was an an absolute disaster. Ya’l allowed me to schedule a pickup at a time where they were closed. The multiple occasions I tried to return the car and was turned away and overcharged was infuriating. My experience was Bad with a capital B! I’m questioning whether or not to use these services again.

Unlike the Hertz rental on Jan. 21-25 (which was poor) this car rental was a good value.
4.0 OkayJan 26 2021
The quality of the car was poor. I am a Hertz customer. Hertz could provide a better car.

2.0 MediocreJan 2 2021
Staff was friendlyLocation was under staffed. Car was dirty when I picked it up. There was no washer fluid in the vehicle and it was dangerous driving it until I bought some. When I went to return the car it was closed. I’ve been on the phone with Hertz for over an hour to determine what to do. Super dissatisfied.

I liked the car I received and the customer service was great, but there definitely needs to be more than one person working the counter to cut down on wait times.
5.9 OkayJul 12 2021
I waited over an hour to pick up my vehicle and about 30 minutes to drop it off. The car was “premium” and excellent—clean, well-maintained, etc. Gas started at under half a tank, which was annoying,
8.0 ExcellentMay 31 2021
The carI prepaid for gas expecting to be credited for the fuel I didn’t use. At pick up the staff asked me so many questions about extras I felt obligated to buy the gas.

5.6 OkayNov 10 2019
YesI was Very Disappointed with the hidden charges that was charged to my credit card when I turned the car in. I'm going to contact Avis to dispute these charges tomorrow and find out why I wasn't informed of these hidden charges when I picked up the car.
7.2 GoodApr 29 2019
Faster transactions. I mean it’s 2019. Scan in licence and credit card data for Pete sake. Instead of manually doing it. And dot matrix prints. Just too funny.
2.8 MediocreFeb 1 2019
First Avis location closes at 5pm on a weekday making it impossible to pickup a car if you have a fulltime job. Second Avis location was much better with friendly assistance. Definitely on brand that has two very different views on how to run a companyCar smelled really bad and had commercial plates, which made driving intolerable

4.4 OkayJul 16 2018
Drop off was a nightmareThe car was cheaper at this location that the ones closer to my home.The staff didn't inform me that they were going to close early on the day that I was returning the car. I asked them what time they normally close on Sundays. They told me the closing time, and I told them I would be returning the car by that time on Sunday, even though my rental ended on Monday morning. This was because I didn't want to pay for parking overnight and then have to come and drop off the car on Monday morning (a 90 minute round trip for me). When I arrived on Sunday before the appointed hour (15 minutes before closing time) they had been locked up and closed for hours. (I called the national Avis hotline, and they told me that the Sunday closing time was early on that day because of the Memorial Day holiday the next day. WTF!

I rented the car for a weekend, they were closed on Sunday but I could leave the key in a key box. the stuff is friendly.they asked me for a passport (never happened to me before) and I didn't have it with me. Finally I showed a copy by internet (I had it on my drop box) and I could rent the car!!!

I tried to confirm my reservation the day before because I knew there were shortages and they brushed me off. They waited until half an hour before my rental time to tell me that they had no cars. They should have honored my reservation or told me early enough I could find a replacement.
4.4 OkaySep 7 2016
No overnight drop off. No answer at local office.The location is close to upper manhattan and therefore less expensive than a manhattan rental.no mention if overnight key drop (there's none at that location), and attempted to call multiple times with no answer and no voice recording nor was the call forwarded to the general number. with no information on the website as to Labor Day hours. the customer service representative told me I was wrong and was not helpful. I could go on ...
8.8 ExcellentJul 26 2016
The vehicle was upgraded for free after my standard size vehicle wasn't available.The inside of the windshield was very filmy and I had to thoroughly clean it myself to drive safely. I found a beer bottle under the drivers seat and empty soda bottle rolling around under the passenger seat. The exterior of the vehicle was spotless but these "leftovers" from the previous rental were concerning.
