2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: receipt. Car was returned after being profesionaly cleaned by commercial cleaners. After I left, they added a 300$ cleaning charge to my bill.
2.0 MediocreFeb 3 2021
Cons: I will never look at Hertz as one of the first companies I rent from. I had to make a change because of a family emergency and not only did the change get messed up -- booked at the wrong location. When I called back to straighten the location out, I was informed that the upgrade would cost $455.00 more -- for 2 extra days. I cancelled the reservation immediately and one of your competitors not only helped me get a car, but gave me a better rate than I got from Hertz in the first place. Extremely poor customer service and many of my friends and family were aware of how I was treated. Won't forget it either.
2.0 MediocreJan 31 2021
Cons: I paid for the rental online. When I returned the car, Hertz double billed me and charged my credit card for the rental a second time.
6.0 GoodAug 13 2020
Pros: It never happened. I got there late due to my late arrival and they were closed. They said they would cancel my reservation and that I wouldn't be charged so I am happy with that and I rented another car through you and Alamo.Cons: I would have loved to know that there was a closing time because then I would have rented from somewhere else. It was not my fault that I was late.
2.0 MediocreJul 1 2020
Cons: Hertz was very rude and rented us a car with expired tags.
8.8 ExcellentJan 2 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful and accommodating had a layover more or less until my ride got me from the drop off location and the staff were very pleasant to chat with and welcomingCons: Did not like the modify portion of my booking, to add two more days onto my rental world have more than doubled my original cost, and was definitely less than returning and starting a whole new week long rental. I get that its probably built into the computer program but daaang
8.0 ExcellentAug 6 2019
Cons: Having had my rental car washed by Hertz at pick up. They were short handed on pick up date, however, interior was vacuumed. Nice car, otherwise.
6.0 GoodJul 28 2019
Cons: More staff at rental counter. Tires on rental car were balled and vehicle had high mileage.
6.8 GoodMay 21 2019
Pros: Pick-up was confusing. I booked the rental online and thought I was booking the car out of the airport. Instead, the booking was for pick-up in downtown KC. I was at the airport and ended up paying double the rental.Cons: Your online information could have been more specific about location pick-up. Especially for travelers coming into KC via the airport.
7.2 GoodApr 23 2019
Pros: Friendly serviceCons: They gave me a car that needed a oil change...

2.0 MediocreSep 1 2020
Pros: RNothing- no cars available
2.0 MediocreAug 11 2020
Cons: 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
Pros: 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!Cons: 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
Pros: drop off was easyCons: the 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
2.0 MediocreAug 15 2019
Pros: Nothing! Terrible customer service!!Cons: 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!!!
9.2 ExcellentJul 20 2019
Pros: Quick pickup and a free ride to our final destination after we dropped the car off!Cons: Car was cleaned hastily before we received it, was still pretty dirty.

10.0 ExcellentJan 5 2021
Pros: Owners and staff were so friendly, pick up and drop off was great!Cons: It was so smooth, I can’t think of anything that could have improved.
10.0 ExcellentSep 24 2020
Pros: The car was great and the staff was very helpfulCons: Drop 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.
2.0 MediocreAug 19 2020
Pros: Nothing staff was rude!Cons: Everything! Had hidden policies!

4.0 OkayAug 3 2020
Pros: location is near my houseCons: car smelled like cigarettes, i dropped my keys off after hours and was charged through the next day
2.0 MediocreDec 13 2019
Pros: Me cobraron 80.50 por la rentar de 24 horas de Kansas City mo a Dallas foth worth airport y al entregar el coche me quedo la cuenta en 140 por un carro súper pequeño sucio se me hace un robóCons: Sean honestos con sus costos y hablen con la verdad, no cobros ocultos
9.6 ExcellentSep 25 2019
Cons: If I could have dropped off the vehicle at the airport that would have saved me money since I wouldn’t have had to take an Uber to the airport after I dropped off my rental. It was also inconvenient to drop off the rental, wait for an Uber, then pack all my bags BACK into the Uber when it arrived.
8.4 ExcellentFeb 23 2019
Cons: Slightly dirty interior in the backseat, but nothing I had to worry about! Friendly, helpful staff, and was able to get a rental on a late notice!! Thank you!

2.0 MediocreMar 21 2017
They didn't even HAVE cars!!!Pros: The price on Kayak!Cons: 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.....
