Unable to accommodate minor change in travel plans
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: My flight was delayed, so I had to pick up the car at 10PM instead of noon, or even noon the following day (I had agreed to pay the full price). I tried to call the local Avis for three hours the day before to clarify my reservation. Nobody at the local office answered. I called literally 50 times. Nobody at the national office could help. The next morning (still before arriving in the city of the rental) I tried calling again. Finally after 2 hours and 30 attempts the manager finally answered and couldn't help me at all. She had no suggestions and kept saying "it is what it is." This was the worst rental experience of my life. I will never rent from Avis again.
Cons: I didn't know that I had to return it exactly at the time I picked it up. I was told it was to the minute. That added a bit a stress.
When I booked it I didn't know exactly when I would be picking it up so I estimated and I got there early and had to sit and wait until that time or extra fees would have been applied. I think there should be some flexibility.
Cons: Our reservation was for 08:00. I was called at 07:50 (10 minutes prior to our pick up) and told that there wasn't a car available and that they were only able to place 5 out of 12 reservations in cars the previous day. There "wasn't anything that could be done" so I called the customer service line. This was an incredibly cumbersome process with no assistance provided. I made four separate calls. I was transferred to Dollar Rentals to see if they would have a car for me? I do not feel that this situation was handled well by the Hertz company from every angle. I did not feel that, I, the customer should have been responsible for calling other locations and companies for your error. It was very unprofessional.
