Cons: Well...we actually couldnt get a car. We booked the car nearly a week in advance, about a qeek after hurricane matthew came through. I understand that weather can have an effect on businesses, so that ia t the issue....
Apparently the guy working in the offoce called an left a message 2 hours before we went to pick the car up. I hadnt heard the message at that point. We got to the office and entered, but no one was there and there was no sign on the door. Totally unlocked and empty....so we waited a few minutes, and then i called the office. The guy had had the phone redirected to his cell, he said he would be back in ten. When he arrived he said, "how did you get in here?" and said "oh, thats not good" upon finding that the door hadnt been locked. After we had already been waiting there for 10-15 minutes, he says "didnt you get my voicemail? We dont have a car"... He was extremely unhelpful, and when we asked about public transport he said he "doesnt know about it" because he "has a car". We were intending on using a car to get to orlando, so it wasnt just a sight-seeing or convenience thing.
We ended up taking an Uber that was harrowing and cost $100.
When I later listened to the message (I was too mad at the time), the employee had said something to the effect of "we dont have a car for you right now, call back if you want us to keep looking for one, if you still need it". What?!?! This is the problem I have- surely Hertz would have known there wasnt going to be a car for us more than 2 hours in advance??? Surely the company policy for advising clients that their entire stock of THE ONLY thing they have to offer and only reason for business is gone is not ONE unprofessional and vague voicemail? I have never been met with a less helpful employee, and would have thought that he might have tried to help us find a substitute form of transport...
Dealing with Hertz will hurt your brain, basically.

Cons: Car wasn't ready when I got there 30 minutes early. Rental agent was a bit, shall we say, grumpy.

Pros: Nothing. My overall experience was horrible.
Cons: The man gave me the wrong car because he had no other cars in stock yet I reserved the car a month or more ahead of time. Which should have been plenty of time to get the car I ordered. I had paid for a full-size but was given the smallest compact car. He had no sympathy and gave no compensation for the wrong car. Plus there were fees I had no idea about other than the underage fee. I will never be renting from hertz again. They lack in customer service and I do not like that I was given I different car than I had paid for!!!!
