Cons: On collection staff just didn't seem bothered, talked amoungst themselves, left me standing there without saying what was going on and did not have the vehicle I requested and paid for. no GPS available either, charged more for insurance and took more than they said would cost when I returned the car.
I used them as was supposed to be the cheapest, don't fall for it, use a different company.

Hertz is garbage
Cons: everything. They didn't have a car for me even though I prepaid the fare and reserved a vehicle. Told me to come back the next day and MAYBE they would have one. I asked if I could pick up one from another location and was told it wasn't possible. After a little back and forth I made the receptionist called Hertz on my behalf to get a vehicle for me. Then they proceeded to tell me I was going to be charge a different rate which was three times the original booking. Spent another 2 hours on the phone with Hertz to speak to a supervisor and finally got a vehicle in a different location but still ended up paying more than my original agreement. Gold member at Hertz and I will never rent from this garbage company ever again. I would suggest you avoid the headache as well. I know you think the chances of this happening to you are slim, but believe me I've heard multiple stories about this company after I complained about my whole ordeal.

Wrong pickup location
Pros: As far as the actually rental car, everything was great. Hertz was great. Kayak not so much.
Cons: During my search for a rental car, I was searching for a car rental at the airport.
When I go there, they explained it was for the downtown location which does not have as high of taxes which is why it was so much more less expensive.
I wound up paying a lot more for my rental car because of that.
Even more disappointing, I found out this happens all of the time to others. It’s not hard to imagine that you are doing this on purpose to bait and switch customers with a low price and then give them the oops, you are in the wrong place. I can say that I will never use Kayak again and I will be sure to tell all I know what a misleading experience I had.

sent me to a closed location
Pros: The staff in New Orleans were very friendly, and I liked my car. The staff was helpful about telling me how to get credit back for insurance I didn't consent to pay for.
Cons: First, I was charge $143 for insurance that I didn't consent to. Then when I extended my rental till 2pm on a Saturday they failed to tell me the drop off location would be closed. It was a total nightmare.

A convenient way to go
Pros: The return went smoothly
Cons: I had to wait a while for my ride to the hotel.
Pros: The rate with unlimited miles and an additional driver was within my personal budget. I was able to take a road trip to 4 different states in a reliable car on great gas millage during the Thanksgiving week.

Pros: Upgraded to Mustang at no extra cost.
Cons: Charging 3X more than market value for gasoline is just stealing from people. Getting out of town is stressful enough without having to make sure to stop and fill up before returning the car.
