Hertz packed our threesome family into a Chevy Spark. As unsafe and uncomfortable as this was, we were determined to make the best of it. We would've appreciated a little better customer service than what we were given initially at Lihue, Kauai.

i was given a camaro, 2 doors, not good, cant easily fit big luggage in the trunk and through the door to the back seat. I don't like sports cars. I also asked you guys to include my gold membership with hertz so i could just get car and not stand in line and no one ever replied to my email.

Pros:

The car was fine. The staff is very reasonable and friendly given the challenge at the Lihue-Kauai location.

Cons:

The shuttle buses are too small to accommodate the demand after a flight arrives, so you may have to wait several shuttles to get onboard and to the rental car location. Once there, the line is slow--- not uncommon for rental agencies, but one would think they could figure this out. Most damning, After waiting in line for the rental car and getting the paperwork finalized, we had to wait another half hour for the car to be ready. They said it was being cleaned. We waited with another 40 people. There has got to be a better way to run this location. There's either a management problem or a shortage of employees.

Pros:

The car was fine but the experience of picking it up in Kauai was so miserable I don't think I would ever use Hertz again. We were told there were no cars when we arrived at the lot. A smug agent informed people that the agreement was for a car sometime that day and not at any particular time. What a way to start your vacation in paradise. It took a long time before they even would predict when a car might be available. Then I was told a car was on the lot but I would need to wait for it to be cleaned. Inconsiderate and incompetent service. A large group of really unhappy customers basically begging to take any car they could find. No apologies.

Cons:

See above.

Car was clean and nice full of fuel and ready to go. Process was fast and easy. Service and car were great, no complaints.

Cons:

When I priced out the same car the day before it was half as much. My fault for not reserving it then I guess. I just don’t like price gouging. Even under the guise of supply and demand.

Pros:

Car was very comfortable and had no issues with operations.

Cons:

Pick up and drop off was chaotic, customer service was very poor. Picking up the car took an hour because of long lines and slow service. It was clear they were backed up and did not have enough vehicles clean and ready to rent. Drop off was also poor, the return area was poorly marked and the attendant did nohad promptly acknowledge us or assist in directing us for our return.

Pros:

Nothing! Will never use Dollar Rental again!

Cons:

I booked our car 3 months ahead of our trip. Called 2 weeks prior to our trip to confirm we did have a car and they confirmed we did have a car. The day before our trip, they called and said they were closed on the weekends so we would not have a car! They also said they were calling "as a courtesy" and were not required to call us!!!!!! That left us stranded. Found out they changed their hours a week prior to our trip but they never bothered to call us until the day before. And then to have the audacity to tell us they were calling as a "courtesy"!

Aloha! The car rental place closes at 2pm!! This is not a reasonable time to close! Needless to say we did not make it on time the first day. The car rental location is about 25-30 minutes from the airport, it is not easy to get a taxi, Lyft or Uber from the Lihue airport. Our taxi cab driver told us that this was likely the scenario since I guess it is a recurring problem, that tourists can't imagine a car rental would close at 2pm. He told me to call since it wasn't quite 2pm when he picked us up. I called to tell them we were on the way and could they please wait until we got there at about 2:15/2:20- they said, they couldn't. So we were without a car for the first day of our trip and had the hassle of going back the second day to get the car. We still had to pay for the first day when we didn't get to use the car. So all in all this wasn't great! I think it is important for the partnership between Kayak and Dollar to flag this for tourists so that their first experience on the island isn't a huge hassle over the car.

Dollar moved our Saturday car pick up to a hotel far from the airport on Kauai. When we called the hotel rental office, they said they closed early on Saturdays (12:00) and would not be open when our flight arrived. I had to can the rental. Luckily I found a local car rental company but had to pay an additional $200! This problem should either be resolved or potential renters should be warned in advance about Saturday pick ups in Kauai, at least for Dollar.

Address listed for rental car pickup is not in LIHUE. It is located in a hotel in the town of KOLOA. Koloa is a 30 minute drive from the airport with no airport shuttle to the rental car pickup. This location is only open until 1200 in the afternoon. The woman working at the dollar location in Koloa was nice enough to call two days prior to the pickup and inform me of the location and their hours. Kayak/Priceline did not provide any of this info on the rental confirmation. The dollar company could not switch the rental to their airport location nor could they allow drop off at the airport. Entire reservation had to be canceled the day before pickup and I had to rebook with another company for much more money out of my pocket. Please update the address on this rental location for your website.

Pros:

Car was comfortable - outwardly seemed clean - staff was nice

Cons:

Car smelled like cat pee almost from the time we drove out. The operation was very small and not what we expected from a front line car rental company - obviously contracted out. Not much inventory to pick from and I felt the professionalism was lacking - would never rent from them again. Gave us an uneasy feeling in regards to the paperwork we were given in the onset.

I liked the ease of pick up; I was allowed to go out and choose any car on a particular row that was in the category I had reserved. I wasn't given any high-pressure treatment, trying to get me to upgrade to something I didn't need or buy an unnecessary insurance policy Then it was just a matter of looking the car over for any scratches and proceeding out to our destination. The return was equally straightforward. I applaud the company for this most appreciated streamlined approach!
