United Dropped me in DC and I had to Rent a Car to Drive myself home to VA Beach. I requested a FULL SIZE Car and got a Little KIA. It didn't even have Electric Seats or a Rear Window Wiper. The Driver who took us from Airport to Avis was Very Rude and insisted on playing his Radio Loud even when I explained I needed to Make an Important Phone Call.

Please note there are two Hertz locations - one at the airport and one down the road. There was a lack of communication between them both and they each seem to be staffed by just one person.

Upon the recommendation of my significant other, we called Hertz to verify our reservation for a car with pickup set for July 9, the original reservation was made in January 2021. We called the Hertz location we were picking up from directly. The representative we spoke with told us someone had called and cancelled the reservation on July 5. When we questioned the person who had cancelled the car as neither of us had called Hertz to cancel she responded "the cancellation came from central reservation." She then told us they did not have the car we reserved and would not provide any alternatives other than giving us the number for Avis. I continued to ask who cancelled the reservation and she kept attempting to gaslight us and explain to us how we had cancelled the reservation. Rather than find a solution she then hung up on us. The fact we reserved the convertible for an affordable price months in advance, coupled with the fact Hertz had no convertible leads me to believe Hertz merely cancelled our reservation without any notice and rented the convertible for a higher price. This caused us to rent the car for a higher price since it was last notice. I will never rent from Hertz again.

The location given to me by Kayak had been torn down. I had to call the 800 number to find the new office, and when I got there they were already closed. I cancelled the reservation and booked with Enterprise.

Getting the car was fast, no pressure. Same with return. They were ready with paperwork at the airport counter, friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. The car was new, only 500 miles and very clean. Ran great. Easy to drive, keyless ignition. Too bad it didn't have automatic unlocking doors on approach. But all else was fine.

I had to cancel my rental car last minute because they didn't take my particular credit card. Unfortunately, the insurance company that they use did take my credit card and charged me $33.00 that I still haven't gotten back. Budget told me that I would be credited the full $30 back on Friday. That didn't happen and now I am having to dispute the charge with my bank. Please help me if you can and willing.

Very convenient desk location at SLO Airport, right beside baggage claim. The staff member who helped us was friendly, efficient, and quick. It was no more than a 50 yard walk around the corner to our car. The parking lot was well lit. Our Kia Forte was clean, comfortable, had plenty of trunk space, and got fantastic gas mileage.
