Hertz employee was super helpful. She let me view the car before signing, and helped us review other options when we saw the trunk wasn't going to work with our 4 bags -- making special care to use any discounts we were eligible for through insurance, etc.

not a single thing.When I showed up at my rental time to pick up my rental for a wedding I was in later that day, I was told "sorry, there were no more cars on the lot for the day, so there would be no car for me. When I started to question the agent, she said "you could go walk the lot and see for yourself if you don't believe me". She said there might be a cargo van i could use, but it would only take one passenger, which I needed room for more. After asking her what she suggest I do, she walked away without explanation, later returning with another agent simply telling him "he wants to talk to you" This new man told me I was "lucky" because someone had just returned a car I could take, but it didn't have a chance to get cleaned and the gas tank was only half full. having no other choice, I took the car and was not even walked out to the car or showed which car it was. I had to hit the button on the key in the parking lot. when I got in the car, there were sticky stains all over the interior, the gas tank was completely empty and the gas light was on, and the passenger seatbelt alarm beeped the entire time, even though there was no one in the passenger seat most of the time. As someone who travels bi-weekly for work, I have never experienced anything like this, especially such poor customer service. The $200 deposit taken from my credit card has yet to be returned, and another $50 charge was attempted.

I was charged for Travel insurance even though I didn't end up renting the car.

I like how the person that helped me when I picked the car up. She was amicable and replied to my questions in a great manner.The gentleman that worked with me when I dropped the car was rude and borderline xenophobic. His attitude was not professional. I wouldn’t rent a car from that office again.

Yes very friendly and following safety procedures.we needed to put air in one of the back tires because the low pressure alert went on. Although it did not go flat and seemed to be a slow leak, it was a bit nerve racking.
6.0 GoodMay 19 2020
Staff was nice. Got me into a car quickly and efficiently.The car had obviously been smoked in before it was given to me. Luckily, I didn't need the car more than the time it took to get to my destination. Still though, not an ideal way to receive or drive a long distance.

I LOVED this cargo van!! Me and this Ford Transit van became good friends on our 2000 mile two week tour! The local Enterprise staff is wonderful and pickup / drop off was easy!The van interior could’ve been a little cleaner but that didn’t stop me from loving this van!

2.0 MediocreAug 1 2016
I called and asked to be picked up at the station and the woman (after just hanging up several times) irritatedly and dismissively told me to take a cab. The cab took nearly half an hour (for an 8 minute trip) and when i arrived, Budget was closed, leaving me stranded in the rain in the middle of nowhere. Worthless.

Excellent service with renting the vehicle. answered all the questions we had about the GMC we rented. Drop off was easy .I didn't care so much for the model I rented for the long trip we took, there were a lot of little things ,not Avis fault but GMC the way they designed the car. I can go on and on about this but If I had to rent another car I would come back to Avis. by the way this is a great way to check a car out before you buy! I would not buy this GMC SUV. but my next trip I would definitely go back to Avis.

AntsI like the car it's self as it was smooth ride and the gas cost for the trip was very cheap.I did not like the fact that When picking up the vehicle they were unable to honor a coupon that we were told that could be used at pick up. Also There was an ant infestation along with a few spiders. We also booked the car the be returned at 12 PM on the return day and were told at pick that is needed to be there by 9:45 or we would be charged another day.
8.0 ExcellentMar 3 2017
Car was ready when we arrived. No problems getting in or out quickly.Car was too small for 4 people to drive on a long trip. This car should not be considered a Full Size car.
