Charged Double for our car and was told they would call us after we left to fix it and it would be fixed before we dropped it off. Never got a call and was still charged the wrong amount at drop off.

The price I secured online was not honored. I was charged full price and told they do not give discounts.They don’t honor any online discounts.

Travelers are in a hurry, when we do a Phone SEARCH, MCI rental cars, we actually want to PICKUP at MIC airport. Travelers don't know what street address or zip code is at the downtown location. Then there's no way to call you, you were closed. I better NOT had been charged anything.
7.6 GoodAug 9 2020
The pickup process was very quick. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was considerably less to pick up at the downtown location vs the airport- $200 less!The downtown location didn't have a way to return the rental to them late Saturday or Sunday. I had to pay extra to take it to the airport, less than 1-2 day rental, but still a drag.
4.4 OkayAug 7 2020
drop off was easythe car was dirty, the pick up attendant was short with me, the car was on empty and I had to repeatedly ask him to wipe off spit luggies from the inside of the car, he was hot and in a hurry, very transactional not the proffessionalism I am used to with you guys or other rental companies

Nothing! Terrible customer service!!They booked me a time after they close for the day so I couldn’t pick up my car. I called the next morning when they opened but they had given my car away the day before. They wouldn’t honor my booking. They charged me double. They would’t “pick us up” (their slogan). Very frustrating!!!

They took the reservation then when I got there they had no car to rent to me.

I reserved a car. But, Hertz called me 20 minutes before I was scheduled to pick it up and said they did not have any cars available. So I never got the car, thankfully I called Avis and they were able to help me out.

Hertz did not even have the car, none were available even though we had a confirmed reservation through Kayak. Don’t rely on this reservation system!
2.0 MediocreJan 3 2022
They did not have our car ready at the time it was reserved, and did not have an idea of when it would be ready. Therefore, we had to make alternate travel arrangements the same day, over the holidays, which was a huge issue.
4.0 OkayDec 12 2021
Customer service was poor. I was charged for pick-up and drop-off at 2 different locations even after she confirmed with me I was dropping off at the same location. I will now have to dispute it. She didn't explain that even after my initial payment of $201, that my card would be charged another $261 for some reason and when I called customer service the next day, the guy explained that it was a deposit that wouldn't be charged after I return the car. However, the extra charge remains for inter-city drop-off. And, the person at the desk pointed out and told us to select a car from the "right" but if there weren't any to go to the "left" and when we got outside, there weren't any cars in the Compact area at all! So we just got in one! I still don't know if we chose correctly or if I am to be charged again! Not a choice I want to make with no help after a long day of traveling. No explanation given for extra charges.

Hertz customer support canceled my reservation without refunding my prepaid amount of $250. I had to dispute the charge on my credit card and I'm not sure yet if it'll be upheld. I still needed a rental car, so I had to reserve a new rental on the spot which ended up costing $425. Not happy at all

Hertz changed their hours of operations last minute and were not available to let me pick up my car at the time I had scheduled it for
2.0 MediocreOct 24 2021
We gave 3 days of cancellation notice because of SW airlines having there pilot problems and they kept $50.00 instead of refusing our full amount. It’s a bad policy and provides a bad service. I will never use Hertz again.

Contact Super Shuttle for your trip to/from airport to pick up vehicle. It's AWESOME! Also, if you don't rent your car from the airport, it's a whole lot less expensive. Like half as much!

They are over priced and overbooked the car that I had reserved. Long line at the airport too.

I didn’t like anything about the experience. The man didn’t let me have the rental. I understood the situation but he was relentlessly unforgiving. I couldn’t find my credit card with my name on it but had to use my mothers who is an authorized user on my account. He wouldn’t let me call my credit card company to verify me as the owner. I had already paid for insurance on the rental but my trip was ruined. I will never rent from Avis and will let my family & friends know about how disappointing my experience was with them.

I was given a 6 passenger car when I asked and needed a 7 passenger. There was no customer service where I picked it up. I had to take the car back early because it was useless to me as a 6 passenger. I couldn’t use it at all.
1.9 HorribleJun 22 2021
They don't bother informing you on web site or when you book that a major credit card is needed to be able to rent a car including a credit check, no cash or debit card just major credit cards so if you dont have one they will turn you away. Worst experience ever and I'll never go back to AVIS ever, I'll continue to rent from Enterprise because they rented me a truck without major credit card or a reservation on same day AVIS turned me down and almost ruined the family vacation.

The car was great and the staff was very helpfulDrop off was not easy to figure out, I wish they had let me know ahead of time how to do the after hours drop off, since they knew I rented it until 10pm on the day of my return.

They didn't even HAVE cars!!!The price on Kayak!The fact that I never got a car. They didn't have any. After waiting in line, they handed me a list of rules on what I needed, but couldn't produce because I was nowhere near home. As a frequent customer in my home town, I asked that my account be looked up so they know my history. They gave no assistance and I was told that since each MO location is franchised, only my home location could help me...except I'm out of town, stranded.....
