Treated very poorly, right from the start the girl thst checked me in was rude. I had a temporary license extention from DMV and she was giving me a hard time. Then they wouldn’t accept my EDD Card issued by state of California I made a complaint to Enterprise regional manager but have not heard back with an apologyCustomer Service improvement is needed through coaching and training

3.6 MediocreJun 2 2020
I was directed to the wrong pick up location which was difficult to find and was closed. Upon calling Hertz for information and waiting for 20 minutes the individual I spoke with had poor command of the English language and gave me incorrect information. I found the alternate pick up location and was charged approximately $38 more than the quoted amount for the rental. Have yet to be refunded my security deposit. Wondering if all this is due to Hertz bankruptcy.

Jordan took the time to provide a car for me although they were sold out and no longer accepting applications. He was very attentive and supportive as to my credit card situation. He worked with me and overall was awesome in assisting me. Thank you Jordan!Well, I was charged double the rental agreement!!! I returned the car and when I was checking out, the attendant gave me the final chargeable amount. I am appalled that the rate was more than doubled.

DisasterAvis confirmed my pick-up time, but they decided to close early. Leaving me and my family stranded. Avis support said to go to San Diego airport??? Hour plus south of where we were going. Got a Taxi to LA instead. Never again Avis :(.

Pick up agent recorded a full tank of gas when the car actually had a half tank. Agent at drop off disputed this and customer service were originally unwilling to credit me, but came around when I became frustrated. A hiccup I could have done without, but many thanks to the customer service agent on the phone for sorting.
