10.0 ExcellentJun 2 2021
Pros: Excellent
10.0 ExcellentJun 2 2021
Pros: Excellent
8.0 ExcellentMar 27 2021
Cons: They did not have the car I reserved. I was downgraded to a smaller car. They did give me a 10% discount though. They literally had only like 3 cars in the whole lot.
6.0 GoodMar 21 2021
Pros: They were only friendlier because they were late on pickup and did not want to lose a customer to their competition agencies.Cons: Take time to understand customer requests on rentals, take more time in closing out the customer bills and get them their rental copy same day or at the very least next business day. I returned my rental on the 15th first thing in the morning, still have not received my final bill or an explanation as to why I have not received the full $200 deposit back.
10.0 ExcellentDec 2 2020
Pros: awesome staff. only one person there for check in so had to wait about 15 minutes. But everything was great. I will definitely use again when I need a car.Cons: hours of operation limited and staff limited due to pandemic. But they were awesome working around this issue. Great experience.
7.6 GoodNov 16 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful - even when I arrived very close to 6 pm. The vehicle was clean and in great shape, the paperwork was fast and easy to complete.Cons: It could have been catastrophic that I rented a van, but a large SUV was cheerfully presented to me when I arrived as though I would consider it an upgrade; the van came back damaged. When you need a van, you need a van so I think a customer should be called about something like this and given the chance to say fine, I'll take the SUV or please find and get me a van from a nearby location. I worked with the SUV but it was a startling surprise. Also, I didn't like the street I had to leave my car on much - not visible to Enterprise due to a wall or bushes, and it was dark.
8.8 ExcellentOct 7 2020
Pros: Staff good.Cons: Felt over charged for insurance
10.0 ExcellentJun 18 2020
Pros: Pick up and drop off were really quick and easy. The staff were all very friendly. The truck was great!
10.0 ExcellentJun 10 2020
Pros: Soooo easy drop off
8.8 ExcellentApr 18 2020
Pros: Ray at Gilbert, AZ was helpful. Had he not shown me where the release for the gas cap was, I'd have spent some time looking for it!Cons: I was surprised to get NO paperwork to take along on the trip. But when we returned the car none was required, so I understand the "no paperwork idea". Our rental car got GREAT gas mileage, was comfortable during our 1600 mile trip, and insured we'll consider Enterprise for our next rental.

6.0 GoodMay 18 2021
Cons: They told us the tank was full, it was below half. When I tried to call the location, no answer. We had to return it with a full tank or risk paying ten dollars a gallon. Also the gas tank cover had been rigged closed, when we got gas it would not shut all the way. We again tried to call the location and no answer.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 26 2021
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The drop off was easier than expected.Cons: Maybe more agents to help out
10.0 ExcellentNov 6 2020
Pros: Easy drop off. Nice vehicle
10.0 ExcellentOct 7 2020
Pros: Customer service was excellent
8.0 ExcellentOct 5 2020
Pros: The staff seemed overwhelmed with the two staffers which took some time to be attended on site and when i called them up to extend my rental contract through the end of October as I was on hold for almost one hour and my call was also terminated so I called them right back until someone answered my call.Cons: Be honest with the actual time frames, leaving someone unattended and on hold for such a long time is simply not good at all.
10.0 ExcellentOct 4 2020
Pros: Great job Marie ancd team!Cons: the bmw
2.8 MediocreSep 29 2020
Pros: Arrived 10 minutes early to get in quickly and out just as fast but Hertz didn't have an available pickup like I scheduled and it took 2 hours for them to ready one. The first hour they searched for a pickup the second hour they worked to get it released from someone else. There were 5 employees but only 2 helping customers then the other three (including a guy who wouldn't wear his mask) just hung around joking about everything they could and after an hour of waiting for a truck and another hour staring at the truck they gave it to me messy. This was dangerous, it put peoples and there love ones health at risk, and it was unprofessional. I HOPE TO BE REFUNDED IN FULL FOR THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE ON THE BEHALF OF HERTZCons: Everything could have been done better. They only check their reservations at 7am and not again until the next day so they have no idea who has booked and for what kind of vehicle throughout each day. They should receive an automated message for new bookings or be required to check hourly. Then they could pre-emptively call and say we don't have what you booked or they could track the vehicle down elsewhere. The guys cleaning the vehicles could have taken the initiative to clean the vehicle properly. They tried to get away without taking pictures but I stopped them and said the inside of the truck is a mess, the employee said 'i tried the best I could' I thought you have got to be kidding me you were sitting in there making fun of an old guy with gloves on doing nothing the last hour. At this point in the pandemic masks should be mandatory. Timothy Cline
2.8 MediocreSep 29 2020
Pros: One of the staff refused to wear his facemask, and rto my luck i had to wait from 2pm (my pickup time) until 4pm 2 hours with the person jeopardizing mine plus 12 other peoples health. then to top it off they downgraded me to a smaller pickupCons: Mandatory masks and my rental being ready when i arrived
2.0 MediocreSep 14 2020
Pros: They ran out of cars at all locations in Phoenix. No assistance/alternatives were provided. Was told by the customer support line to go to the airport location. Waited in line 3 hours only to tell us they didn’t have a car either. An entire day was wasted trying to get a car with no success.Cons: Everything
2.0 MediocreSep 11 2020
Cons: 15 people packed into a small room. No one had any idea if anyone else had already checked in. Turns out some had been waiting over 3 hours. It was complete chaos with literally no help or guidance available. After waiting 30 minutes without any of the 3 workers even acknowledging my presence (they were busy, dealing with a car shortage I gleaned from others around me who were also waiting) I left and ended up up coordinating to use my mom's car, which was a HUGE hassle, to say the least. This is probably the only negative review I've ever written, I'm not the type to do this. But the whole experience was irredeemably awful. I'll never use Hertz again.

Top tips for renting a car in Gilbert

  • Car rentals in Gilbert make it easy to navigate the Greater Phoenix metropolitan area when visiting the city. Gilbert is about 18 miles from the airport (a 22min drive), which is near the center of Phoenix. With a car, you can easily access Phoenix attractions like the Phoenix Zoo & Desert Botanical Garden, the many professional golf courses, and CityScape, the downtown shopping and entertainment center. You can also explore the parks and nature preserves in the areas surrounding Gilbert, such as Camelback Mountain and South Mountain Park and Preserve, or take a day trip to the new-age mecca of Sedona, which is about 2h 15min north of Gilbert.
  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) is a major airport with three passenger terminals. The Car Rental Center is in a separate building at 1805 E Sky Harbor Circle, just west of I-10. A free shuttle runs between the airport terminals and the Car Rental Center, stopping frequently near the baggage claim areas of the terminals.
  • Like the rest of the Greater Phoenix area, the roads of Gilbert are laid out in a grid pattern, making the city easy to navigate. That said, some streets can be challenging to drive on. For example, Val Vista Drive has several dangerous intersections, so use caution when driving on this route through Gilbert. If you’ll be driving in Phoenix, you’ll want to keep an eye out for pedestrians stepping into traffic, as jaywalking is an issue in the more congested areas of the city.  
  • Fortunately, roads in Gilbert are not especially congested. However, if your plans involve traveling within the Phoenix city limits, you’d be well-served to avoid traveling in rush hour, especially in the mornings between 7am and 9am and the evenings between 5pm and 6pm. If you are visiting Gilbert at the end of the summer, you should be aware of the seasonal heavy rainstorms (called monsoons) and intense dust storms (called haboobs), both of which involve high winds and low visibility. If you find yourself driving in a monsoon or haboob, it is best to pull over and safely wait out the storm.
