8.0 Very good
Cons:Somehow I didn’t realize I ordered a car that changed for every kilometer until I was very tired, out of time and just trying to get to my destination before dark. It ended up being about 60 USD daily on average so not too horrible. I was fortunate in that the car I’d ordered wasn’t ready (I’d gotten an earlier flight) so she graciously offered me an upgrade. On another note, the car is clearly a rental so, not sure if it was the typical island drivers or what, but I got pushed around a lot. Tailgated, almost run off the road, but I was doing the speed limit so who knows.
Pros:Reserved at one rate, agent found a lower rate that saved me about $20 for a one day rental.
Pros:Staff was helpful
Cons:Knowing I would be charged for every kilometer driven. This wasn’t spelled out in the beginning. Felt like a typical bait and switch.
Cons:We booked the car online for a Sunday. It was confirmed online. Sunday comes around, cant get ahold of anyone. Come to find out hertz was closed on sunday. Why would your site even let us rent a car for a date that the car rental company is closed. Furthermore why would your site even confirmed the rental if the company is closed that day. Just annoying
