You guys need to get your stuff together and let people know that you have to pass a background check before renting a car. We are a company that needed a rental car to get an individual with disabilities to his Thanksgiving dinner with his family and Hertz would not let us rent a car, because his staff had to pass a background check. Thanks a lot Hertz for not letting someone with disabilities see his family. You guys are top notch! I'm sure each of you saw your family during the holidays. I will be sure and write a review on your guys page also, letting everyone know the quality of service you guys provide.

Pros:

The car was fine.

Cons:

The drop off fee is OUTRAGEOUS for a one way rental. Also do NOT purchase the advertised insurance. It's a scam. When I picked up the car they informed me it was basically pointless, and I had to purchase theirs too. $33 down the drain.

Nothing they did not even have a vehicle for me when I got there. Offered no solution and never even called. Unprofessional and Hotwire end result I had to pay out of pocket extra and go to Avis. Neither enterprise or Hotwire have offered any agreeable satisfaction or offered to pay the difference. Poor professionalism
