2.0 MediocreJun 16 2021
Cons: The rudest and least sincere service ive ever received. I’ll not be using this service again and I will share my experience over social media.
8.0 ExcellentJun 8 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpfulCons: Long wait, cat I needed wasn't available for another hour but they were able to substitute with a different model.
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2021
Pros: nice upgrade on carCons: waited 1 hr for our car...unacceptable
4.0 OkayApr 27 2021
Cons: Pickup was very cumbersome. Why do I have to re-give all the same address/phone number/credit card details over the counter that I gave when I made the reservation? The system should have all my details. Just give me the keys. It shouldn't take 15 minutes of back and forth to check each person in. The line to wait at the counter was longer than the flight to Orange County was!
4.0 OkayApr 16 2021
Pros: Staff was great at pick up and dropoffCons: The quality of the vehicle. Given a vehicle with a big dent in the door. Purchased the package that I could choose my own vehicle only to find out I needed to pay an upgrade for a mustang if I wanted. I will not use the choose your vehicle option because I did not get to choose .
6.0 GoodApr 15 2021
Pros: staff was ok...drop off was great.Cons: They did not have my car ready when I got there..They gave me a car with 58,000 miles on it...
10.0 ExcellentApr 1 2021
Pros: The staff was very friendly at the Orange County airport. The pick-up was super easy and fast with no wait time. I did get there early and they were able to adjust my pick-up time accordingly.Cons: I noticed all the employees were Spanish and weren't fluent in English. The staff member that was helping me out had a little trouble understanding my English but I didn't think it was a problem.
2.0 MediocreMar 14 2021
Pros: Nothing didn’t pick up the car.Cons: Better customer service

10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2020
Pros: They cancelled my reservation.
6.0 GoodSep 2 2020
Pros: Car was clean and the pickup and drop offs were very convenient.Cons: Rental car company did not honor the weekly rate originally agreed on and added an additional $18.79 to my total.
2.8 MediocreAug 5 2020
Pros: Staff was rude at time of pick up, didn’t have the car I reserved and the solution was the cancel my reservation. My drop off time was outside their working hours and they told me I had to pay another day of rental to return the next day during their hours. Or I could pay to return it elsewhereCons: The car was dirty, food in between the seats. Gum stuck to the cushion, drinks were spilt and never cleaned up. Sand on the seats. With Covid-19 I would have expected it to be extra clean. No one even wiped the car down
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2020
Pros: Easy pick up/drop off. Nice car, brand new. Friendly staff.
2.0 MediocreJun 26 2020
Pros: Nothing. No one was at counter, doors locked.Cons: If only someone was at the counter.
5.6 OkayJun 22 2020
Cons: The location (Renaissance) isn't even open on Sunday although my booking said to return it there at 3 pm. They told me to drop it off at John Wayne airport instead. The car was dirty -- especially given how prevalent COVID is right now, I would have hoped the company would be even more careful about cleaning it. I had to lysol wipe the steering wheel and etc myself after receiving the car.
2.0 MediocreJun 1 2020
Pros: nothingCons: I was called a couple of hours before picking up time and told there was no vehicle for me!!!!!!!
10.0 ExcellentDec 25 2019
Pros: Excellent Car/SUV for our rental. Very comfortable for my 85 year old Father-In-Law. He is a retired Firefighter with Parkinsons Disease & Dementia. Having a comfortable ride is very important with his physical & mental condition. Thanks Hertz for making that happen. You made his Christmas even more Special!!

Pros: I like that the attendant was polite. Price was good for the rental.Cons: Attendant does not answer the phone. I called at different times on different days, never answered the phone. The attendant left the location to wash a car for an 45 minutes. There is no key drop off at that location. There is no shuttle to the airport that is 1 mi. I will not book w/ budget again.

4.0 OkayJun 6 2021
Pros: The rate was very competitive.Cons: The location was extremely hard to find, inside the hotel. Very little signage around. I had prepaid and when I arrive there were no cars available. I had to ask if they could call another location to see if there was another car for me. (They did. There wasn't.) I waited for them to clean a newly arrived car. There's also no way to contact the location itself rather than the 800 number. I had to return 1.5 weeks early because my father had a medical emergency and the 800 number wouldn't issue me any refund, saying I had to talk to the location itself, which I could never find a number for. I was in the hospital with my dad for 2 weeks and couldn't drive over or spend the time fighting. Crappy service.

Terrible rental car services!Pros: Nothing.Cons: The people were rude. There were a lot of limitations and not very well communicated through online orders. Deposit fees were very high and they were not very helpful. I would never recommend this car service to anyone! Don't waste your time and money!! Please pick another option!
2.0 MediocreSep 6 2016
Kayak/ CarRentals.com/ U-Save All terrible customePros: NothingCons: I called U-save the day after I made the reservation to confirm it was unlimited miles. It wasn't. I wanted to cancel the reservation and I have contacted.Kayak, u-Save, and CarRentals.com to help cancel the reseravtion. The reservation STILL HAS NOT BEEN CANCELED. It's been over 2 weeks. No one can seem to help me. I was promised a 50% refund for the cancelation and I have received no refund whatsoever. I am still trying to chase down the cancellation and this was a horrible experience.
