2.0 MediocreJul 7 2020
Pros: NothingCons: It would have been nice if they had the size of car I rented that would accommodate three car seats. It would have been nice if the location I rented from wasn’t closed, empty, and with a for rent sign on the window. It would have been nice if I didn’t have to drive around to other locations and be on the phone for two days trying to find a a vehicle and then in the end not get anything.

7.6 GoodMar 9 2019
Pros: Great cars. Clean. One was well maintained. The other brand new. Ran greatCons: Pick up at OHare new facility was horrible. Computer system slow, clerk inefficient. Price quoted on reservation was $87.00 for one day. High but at an airport. Then without ordering anything extra or changing anything, the price was $200! Got a Budget car outside ORD and saved big

10.0 ExcellentJul 30 2020
Pros: Marcin was amazing. Above and beyond and saved our trip.
6.0 GoodJun 6 2020
Pros: Customer service at Palatine location was excellent!Cons: The car I requested was not available. My rate was adjusted and the team member and I found a car together that worked for me. No complaints, but it would’ve been nice to have the SUV. The car also had a distinct smell as if the previous renter had smoked A LOT of cigarettes inside of it. It was not unbearable, but I got out of the car smelling like the cigarettes. In retrospect, I would’ve found a vehicle without the smell.
4.0 OkayNov 15 2017
Won't use Hertz againCons: They don't write in the price of the insurance which doubles the price of the car. I asked if I could have the insurance fee removed and they told me to drive back to the pick up location which I did and when I got there they told me if they took the insurance off they would have to close out my reservation and start a new one which would charge me twice for the initial day. Very frustrating and they were not very helpful.
10.0 ExcellentAug 17 2017
Pros: The folks behind the Hertz counter in Palatine where very accommodating nice and very willing to help. Great People!!!Cons: Didn't like the auto we rented so found out I don't like Jeep Compass's.
