8.8 ExcellentJul 14 2020
Pros: The gentleman that helped me was very nice. It was really hot that day & I had to wait outside for close to 45 mins while he helped other customers before I got my vehicle. He was always communicating with me & was very professional & friendly.Cons: The car was very dirty & smelled like cigarette smoke. There was previous damage to the vehicle (scrapes & crack in the windshield-which was all recorded before I took possession of the vehicle). And I was about an hour into my journey, figuring out off the gadgets when I came across the tire gage. All 4 tires where WAY off (47, 45, 31 & 33) YIKES! I pulled over & adjusted the tire pressure. That should have been taken care of prior to me getting in the vehicle.

Pros: TerribleCons: Received an email Wednesday before my rental date of Saturday that they did not have a 7 pax vehicle which was reserved for me. Then had the nerve to say contact them if I wanted a smaller vehicle. I might expect such from a smaller company but not Budget!! I had to look around for another vehicle which was not available.

Fearful rental and not a valuePros: Location is difficult to get in and out of. When reviewing car for damage prior to picking up, the rep held on to the paper and we werent sure she was marking down everything we pointed out. Then she expected us to sign it without looking at it. When we turned the car in they did not look at the car for damage. Hoping this doesn't become an issue.

3.2 MediocreApr 25 2017
Poor customer servicePros: Only one person was able to help me out of this poor ordeal. Customer service via hertz service line. She guaranteed that if I come across issues I can exchange the car at any hertz location during my travel. Very calm at explaining and showed true customer service core values.Cons: Poor custome service. Pickup time was at 10 am and due to poor vehicle maintenance had to wait 3 hours on site to pick up the vehicle. A previous flat located on the side wall of the tire was fixed by a plug. Caught the issue and told the service rep. The rep calls the manager and I had to convince that it is a hazard and I am traveling 3 days through different states. Asked the rep if I am not satisfied with the vehicle or encounter additional issues what should I do. Come to find out that it is ok to exchange the vehicle if I am dissatisfied at any hertz location. The manager approaches me and raises the issue if my intention is to change the vehicle at another hertz location then they do not intend to change the tire and I should take it as is. Had to convince him that I have a fixed agenda and I need the vehicle. Finally he allowed the replacement of the tire. Please note passenger side tire was bald...less thread then the recommended safety thread by industry experts. The vehicle rental was a need on my side and not want. Under different circumstances I would have asked for a cancellation of my rental.

Fort Worth, like all of Texas, is absolutely best navigated in a personal vehicle. It is recommended that visitors rent a car because many of the sights and attractions are too far apart to get to without one. For example, say you want to catch a Dallas Cowboys game; it is a 20-minute drive of 15 miles from Fort Worth. But on public transport? It is close to impossible to get to because of all of the connections you would have to make.
If you are like most passengers landing at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, then picking up your rental car is your first order of action upon arriving. There is a designated shuttle on the lower level of the terminal that passengers can take to the rental car center. If you have trouble finding it, just look for signs directing the way.
One thing to be aware of when driving in Fort Worth is that throughout the city and throughout the state of Texas, there are numerous red light cameras. Such cameras record any drivers who run red lights so that the police can issue a ticket to the driver at a later date. While no drivers set out planning to run any red lights, of course, it easy to make a mistake when sliding through a stale yellow light. So make sure to keep that in mind during your time in the city.
Fort Worth regularly suffers from moderate bouts of rush hour traffic, especially on its major highways.
