Everyone is strapped for cars these days. Luckily Hertz had a car for me (had a reservation via Kayak). Others coming to the counter late at night were not so lucky. The lot was thin. I reserved a sedan, e.g. Chevy Malibu but received a GMC Acadia. Way too much car, but can't be to picky these days. No agent in the return lot, had to take keys to counter, but it was quick.

I usually select the managers special which was $560 where they choose the car. They had options available but elected to give me a compact for the $560 for 9 days. Really? A compact for 9 days at $560? I cancelled my reservation at that point I usually get good options of a mid size or better, and most of the time a full size truck, hence why I go with the manager special. I explained to them I was carrying 4 people around for a week and they didn't seem to care. I had doubled booked with Enterprise to cover myself. Glad I did. At Enterprise I got a luxury SUV for the same price. I guess Hertz didn't need my $600?

Communication was great. Only had very large pick up trucks left. Would have liked a smaller car but overall experience was very good.

The cleanliness of the car and the make and model!
2.0 MediocreJul 27 2020
Absolutely nothing about this experience was good.When reserving a specific class of vehicle, try having that type of vehicle available. Completely ruined a trip that I planned a month in advance. I needed a pick up truck, reserved a pick up truck. After calling 10-15 times, to verify the availability, I was able to get someone on the phone. Unfortunately they were not at all helpful, but they did mention that a truck would be due back in on Tuesday.

We made the reservation online through kayak. Decided to drive well out of our way to pick up from dollar bc the price was much less. Once we arrived, they racked on $95 bc it was a one way trip! This should have been calculated when making our reservation for what was clearly a one way reservation. Explained this to Dollar rep and they could care less. We were so upset... wasted lots of time and money. Will never rent from dollar or use kayak again.

The car itself was great--didn't have any problems with it at all. PIck up and drop off were quick and easy.I had reserved the care under my name but my spouse tends to do the driving in a rental car. When we went to pick it up, the company wouldn't let him be the primary driver so we had to pay $12 a day to add him as a driver which was frustrating because we were only going to have one driver. So if you rent with them and only have one person driving, make sure you make the reservation in that person's name.

Pick up was OK, and drop off easy.Pick up service. You must sign damage inspection prior to seeing vehicle

April went out of her way to help me out with our payment and insurance issues. She was patient and helpful the whole time. The experience would have been a total disaster without her.Not being able to rent a car with a Visa debit caused all of the problems we faced. I had to swap out of the truck I had reserved into a Scion, buy additional insurance (on top of the insurance I had already purchased) and pay twice what my initial rental was.

I paid for an SUV and ended up with a Nissan Sentra. The associate didn't even bother to ask me which car I would prefer. And when she asked her co worker over the phone to bring the car, she didn't even tell her what car to bring up. So they both just picked whatever they wanted. When I asked her for a larger car since that's what I paid for, she just quickly said she didn't have anything else and went back to talking on the phone. When they brought the car to me, I asked if they were going to do the walk around inspection with me and she just said, "No, it's fine. I didnt see anything." And then just walked away. There were a few dents on the car but obviously it didn't matter to her. I went to go see my husband's military graduation and I had just landed in SC after 18 hours of flying. The last thing I needed to deal with was their attitude and poor customer service. Definitely will not be going back.

Ask about drop off locations!At no point was untold the drop off location was NOT located at the airport at my destination. I nearly missed my flight as I had to rush to an offsite location and rely on a shuttle us back to the airport terminal. This could/should have been mentioned by the agent at the pickup site.
2.0 MediocreSep 24 2018
Hope you don’t land lateWe were delayed at Chicago and were late to pick up our car by 15 minutes and they gave the car away before we got there. The attendant told us that we should have called and seemed completely oblivious that we couldn’t have called since we were thousands of feet in the air. Terrible experience but maybe ok if you somehow decide to not get delayed at any point on your trip.

Much Better This TimeOn line reservation easy, price was OK. The overall staff were very friendly and helpful. The car was clean and what I had reserved.I had to drive to the airport to pick up the car instead of a oneway rental as I have done in the past. This time they were charging a $75 drop off fee which was something new. Rental went from forty something dollars to over one hundred and twenty plus!!!

Seamless pickup/drop offThe process was simple and they even accommodated a last minute change in drop off location.The price using Kayak was several hundred dollars less which was great, but it bothers me that some people would have paid the Enterprise going rate. Why such a difference?

I liked the ease of the pick up and drop off process. I had a good rate for my rental, but there are always a lot of fees. The vehicle was very comfortable and it had all of the "bells and whistles". We all enjoyed the ride.The only thing was that the 2nd row flooded had been smeared with ketchup and we had to clean it up, before we could get on the road.

5.6 OkayOct 16 2017
Poor customer service after rentalAirbag sensor light came on, then a flashing text box on main instrument panel, "service airbag". No problem, these things happen. I figured it would be easy to do an exchange. We had rented the car on a one way rental, from Columbia, SC to Richmond, VA, a distance of some 400 miles, so I called the 800#, and got a voicemail. Then I called the local# (at the airport, where we picked car up), and got a voicemail. Left messages at both. Then I called two local rental locations, explained the problem and requested a vehicle exchange. Both locations told me they had nothing comparable in stock (one had a subcompact, the other a 15 passenger van; the vehicle we had rented was full size sedan). Both said they would call me back when a return came in; got no return call from either. On the last day of our four day trip, when we had already driven to Richmond, VA, received a call from Airport location, asking if I wanted to speak with the manager. Day (2 actually) late, dollar short.
