Cons:I made the reservation for a car , I was assured it was there , and if I had'nt called to make a time change for pickup I would not have known there was no vehicle available . I passed on two sure oppurtunitys and that's what I got ! I was also told that someone would call me back and that never happened ! I drove to Enterprise location the next morning and got zero results . I then called Enterprise Corporate office and they wanted to make me a reservation for the following Monday ! The lady there assured me a district manager would contact me and that never happened ! Todaybis 3/10/21 and I still have not heard a word from Enterprise !!!To Enterprise : I will walk before I rent from you again !
Pros:The pick up process was so easy and fast.
Cons:Nothing all was perfect!
Cons:Perhaps informing car rental policy Prior to making reservation. A major credit card is needed. Without one, a debit card will not suffice. I was told when picking the car up, credit card with debit symbol is not accepted. No help either as you're spoken to as if you are a thief. No kindness given looking at you as well tone of voice so direct you’re spoken to with disrespect. The worst experience ever renting a car!
Pros:customer Service by Xavier and a Girl I think her name was Natalie
Cons:Truck was basic
Cons:They didn't have a 4-door sedan that I reserved/needed/wanted. They could offer only a VAN or a Pickup Truck which was not suitable for my requirements. I didn't rent.
Pros:Fast service no hassle no hidden fees no upsell.

8.0 Very good
8.8 Very good
Pros:Staff was great and car was great!
Cons:Budget Car Rental return location address was not updated on the reservation. It showed an address that they had moved from over a year ago. I had to call another Budget location and ask where I was supposed to turn it in at. Kind of stressful!
Pros:No mechanical trouble
Cons:The car, a Chevy Malibu, was dirty when it was brought to us; smears on the front and sides glass, dirty outside and I found a used fork in the back seat. It smelled strongly of cigarette smoke and everyone that got in it over our weekend commented. We had to stop early on and buy a gas-station freshener and it still didn't cover it. It had 35K miles and showed it. But it got us there and back, and I guess that's what counts.
Pros:I spent 1.5 hours cleaning the vehicle before our trip, it was filthy inside and out. Brake rotors were warped which caused heavy vibrations when braking, particularly in mountainous regions. This was unsafe. Wiper fluid was empty. USB ports did not work, BluTooth did not work: for a 2,000 mile journey my phone would not connect so only sketchy radio through west TX and NM. 1st world problems I get it but I paid for a premium rental. Upon drop off the Branch was understaffed. Mgt had 1 Rep working the counter during Spring Break.
Cons:Counter service was great upon pickup. Vehicle was nice after I cleaned it.
8.0 Very good
Cons:No instruction about toll device being available on the car
Cons:I made an online reservation and when I arrived to pick up the vehicle I was told I needed to wait 40 minutes because it was in route to the location. After about an hour of waiting, I called and was told the vehicle was not available. I lost that time and it delayed my trip. I asked to cancel the reservation and after a few minutes I received a call back saying they had found a vehicle but I needed to wait another 40 minutes. I declined, overall very poor customer service and it ruined my trip with the family.

Pros:Staff was helpful, made up for wait the day of pick up.
Cons:Car was dirty. Should have cleaned it better not just rinsed.
Pros:The car was good and as expected. I rent avis cars when I travel for business so I am very familiar with their products
Cons:This was the first time I rented via kayak. The piece was much better then going direct to avis so I did not rent direct and did the rental via avis. Now I know why. There was a millage limit. I was never told this. It was just written in light grey font in the confirmation email I got from kayak. The car ended up costing double.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Easy processing, car was upgraded, and staff was friendly.
Cons:More than one person is needed up front to help customers.
One location in Katy
Pros:The friendly, compassionate, professional environment
Pros:I had long drive and fhe truck was a low mileage 2018. As you would expect from a new vehicle, everything was in great shape. Really appreciated not having to worry about reliability. Also liked the SXM radio on the long drive.
Cons:Everything was great, no complaints.
Pros:The car drove great and was good on gas.
Cons:First, we had to wait 30 minutes after pickup time for our rental, and it wasn't washed or ready on time. second, It was a nice car, but the price for the size was a lot. Lastly, we turned the car in on time, but they charged us $25 ×2/ days. When we called the first 2 times they said they'd call back by certain times and never did. The 3rd time the lady told me we had a balance owed of $15 which was not told at time of purchase online or when we picked up car. Then proceeded to tell me she didn't have that they took the $25/2 in the system so I needed to call my bank. She was rude and talked to me like I was stupid. I hung up, and my husband called. It turned out that the lady that took the keys when we returned the car ON TIME never put in the system that we returned the car. So, that's why there was a "balance owed" and they were charging the $25 a day. Very bad service, and won't use that location again.
Cons:The car leaked fluids on my driveway The car had an exhaust leak and the car smelled of exhaust or gasoline whenever the car was idling Hertz uses an overseas call center for their 800 numbers. I have never experienced such poor English skills. Totally unintelligible When I brought this up to a Hertz employee, they told me "Dont feel alone. We cant understand them either." Never renting from Hertz again
