Pros: I just wanted to say that the Madison Hertz employee Alex is doing a great job. He was very helpful and patient with all my questions when I returned the car. His kind manner would definitely make me return to Hertz if I needed a car in Madison again.
Oct 28 2016
Cons: Hertz tried to surcharge for everything extra, like $10 per gallon to refill, $130 for extra driver. This is just a rip-off.
Jan 24 2017
Pros: No hassles on rental. Were not at an airport location, so maybe the extra add-on hussle is less there?
Feb 10 2017
Pros: The car had leather seats

Hard working agent!
Pros: The sole agent on duty was doing his level best to do the jobs of several people. No one was in the office when I arrived to pick up the car, because the agent was out picking up a car from somewhere. Then, because he was the only one there, I needed to wait while he went out and cleaned the car really well. When I returned The car, I had to use the drop box, because once again the agent was out picking up a car.
Cons: This office needs to hire more agents! The agent you have is great,but there is only one of him!

Poor kayak to hertz integration.
Cons: Lost and confused records.
May 8 2017
Cons: Car had a strong smell of marijuana when it was picked up and the smell lingered for several days.
May 16 2017
Cons: I called to change the time of pick up from noon to 7AM and person on phone in Hertz told me it has been changed but when I went to pick up the Van at 7Am I was asked why was I early, the Van is booked for noon.
Jun 10 2017
Cons: The surprise when I got to the airport when my plane came in to find out that I actually had to go clear across town (30 minutes) to get the car. My plane came in at 5 & I was suppose to pick up the car at 5 - BUT Alex was kind enough to wait for us so we jumped in a cab and make it to the address before Alex had to close.
Everything worked out OK

Didn't have class of car I purchased
Cons: First of all I was first in line and there was another couple behind me and the associate ask if he could wait on them first. Sure why not. They rented a small SUV. That's what I was suppose to get. Then when I get up there they didn't have a car in my class and had to pay for the next higher class or I wouldn't have got nothing. I even called corporate and they said that I would have to take it up with the location.... Will not be using hertz or recommend them ever again....
Pros: Tom with really helpful. They reimbursed me for my cab fare. The car was ready when I got there. The staff were friendly, professional and fun. I felt like I was dealing with real people and not just a business.
Aug 18 2016
Pros: Great service, very friendly, energetic, professional staff.
Cons: Price was a little high more than usual.
Nov 28 2016
Pros: The truck was clean
Cons: The truck I reserved was a dodge 1500. However when I picked it up it was a much smaller Nissan. This caused issues since there were five of us crammed in this little truck. They said they would try and get us a bigger truck but never received a call...
Dec 5 2016
Pros: The guy at the counter was great,
Cons: poor signage at the drop off on Madison, had to find my own paring spot outside in their lot and walk into the terminal to do the drop off.
Dec 10 2016
Cons: Too much air freshener
Jan 23 2017
Pros: Upgrade to Caravan was great. Checked with E. Wash., Madison, WI location and was allowed to drop vehicle at nearby Dane. Co. Regional Airport to my convenience. Appreciated not having to arrange another taxi ride. Thank you!
Apr 10 2017
Pros: Convenient location. Service was good at desk. Didn't hassle me about extras.
Cons: Didn't have the car I reserved. Upgraded to mid-SUV. Was not cleaned nor did it have a full tank of gas.
Jul 20 2016
Pros: The car was great.
Cons: Not accepting my debit/credit card without an additional $80 fee. Found that extra charge super suspicious.
Dec 29 2016
Great car but way overcharged
Pros: The car was fine
Cons: Unfortunately when I returned the car I was overcharged by 50.00$ and was in a hurry so didn't have time to prove it to the 4 people at the Conte who couldn't figure out what I was trying to tell them.
Jan 1 2017
Took reservation then closed
Pros: They took our reservation then left us high and dry. We found another car last minute at Alamo
Cons: I wasn't able to rent the car. The guy at the counter said that a credit card was required, and I only have a debit card. I hate credit cards. What's the point of paying for something twice? Despite the fact that I have over $1000 in my checking account, and about $3500 in savings, I can't use a debit card to rent a car? **** that ****.
May 11 2016
Madison budget car
Pros: Staff was courteous
Cons: I didn't like that they upsold us on a different vehicle. The total cost was $400more total.
Jul 16 2016
Great customer service
Pros: Customer Service at these locations
Oct 17 2016
Had to wait
Pros: The person at the counter was friendly.
Cons: After leaving the rental counter to pick up car, we had to wait about 25 minutes for our car to be prepped. There were no other customers and the staff was moving at a snails pace. We asked three times what was taking so long and were told the car needed to be cleaned, vacuumed and gas up. Why they need so much time and why they would wait until a car was rented to do these things is ridiculous.
Nov 28 2016
Good for last minute
Pros: Fast check in/out at the Avis counter (sign at budget said go to Avis)
Helpful staff, good for price last minute
Cons: Car had jumpy transitions gear to gear to gear and heating /defrosting system was a bit hard to figure out.
Feb 13 2017
Pros: The gas mileage of the rental
Cons: 1) The car quoted in the reservation is not available in there fleet, so they had to switch make and model. 2) Sticker shock on the price of insurance for car potentially being out-of-service. 3) Was told I could go directly to rental car website to locate and pay any tolls incurred on trip. But when entering the website address given into google, the site came up as not found.
Mar 20 2017
Pros: Madison staff was very helpful.
Oct 11 2017
Pros: Customer service representative was helpful.
Cons: I reserved a full-sized car (which was categorized as an Impala or similar) would not comfortably fit a car seat in the back seat. I was forced to upgrade in order to have a car that worked. Won't be reserving a car through Budget again.

No snow brush in Wisconsin in the winter?
Cons: One thing is that is a must is to have a snow brush in the car during the winter. Sure enough the second day of renting we had a big snowfall with no way to clean the car other than our gloves! Budget- you need to do better!
Pros: Convienent, adequate mileage given, good price, and what I expected.
Aug 27 2016
Cons: Only had SUVs available. Not what we reserved b
Sep 6 2016
Pros: Convenient location in airport
Cons: I was not given the car I had been promised. The agent tried to upsell (by $9 per day) to give me a comparable car (full size). Both agents (pick-up and drop-off) told me that they knew it was misleading but that they didn't have any control over what corporate does. The agent asked me if i wanted a GPS. I said "sure," and she had me sign for it, but didn't tell me they were charging me almost $12 per day to use it (literally highway robbery!). They said they would e-mail me my receipt but it has been more than 24 hours and nothing has come.

Great customer service

May 11 2017
Pros: It was unbelievably wonderful that the agent waited for us after long flight delays. We arrived way past closing time, and it was a huge relief. the staff was incredibly accommodating. Thank you!
Sep 24 2017
Mediocre customer service.
Pros: Fortunately the line to pick up your car wasn't too long. I was able to check in and pick up my keys in five minutes.
Cons: The front desk Attendant wasn't very friendly and didn't seem to want to take the time to explain my options without
Cons: Constant attempts at up selling. They finally gave me a Kia from Budget that had a defective front seat
Jul 16 2016
Cons: Was not a ware I had to pick up off site...cost me too much time on a business trip.
Jan 5 2017
Terrible customer service
Pros: Friendly but slow counter service.
Cons: Slow process to complete pick up. I received no communication that the drop off point for my one-way rental was a satellite location with no official Avis presence, then was charged for a second day after they claimed it was returned late even though there was only a place to drop the keys, so they have no way of verifying my return time. When I called to dispute the additional late charges, the customer service was slow and unhelpful.
Feb 7 2017
Cons: the "low tire pressure" light came on and the window washer did not work because it was frozen
