Pros: It was easy, the employees were really nice & the shuttle service was convienent & quick. We will definitely use them again. The price we were quoted online was the price we paid. It was great to not see an increase in the cost upon returning the car.

Cons: That the car was returned at 6:14 and I was charged for an extra hour. When at pick up the person giving us the car said return the car around 6pm. I guess I took that to mean that close to 6pm. If I was going to be charged more if it was after 6 pm then he should of said- hey car back by 6pm or we will charge you for an hourly rate.

Pros: The woman at counter. Looking forward to their new location.

Pros: The car was clean and did run... and that's about as far as I can go with positives.
Cons: The pick up location is NOT at the airport. They do advertise this information, but they have a booth at the airport, where you call a number and a van comes to shuttle you to the car rental spot. When we called the number, they didn't tell us this.. they said they would be there in five minutes. No mention of the van. No mention of moving locations. Maybe this was my fault, or maybe they could have mentioned something like "great! We will send a van to pick you up in the next few minutes. Please look for the white shuttle with the words "Payless" on the side!" Or maybe that's expecting too much. I'm not a customer service expert.
We all show up to the rental area and there is only one guy working the counter. So it takes longer than it needs to. He casually mentions that there's a multi hundred dollar deposit that comes with all rentals. Sure. Maybe that was in the fine print. I guess I missed it. But whatever. All was well.
We drive the car off the lot. All is good. Until the next day, when the check engine light comes on and the oil light as well. I called the number they gave me and offered me a few options. None of which accommodated the concept that I was in a wedding all weekend and i needed to use the car in a city 100 miles from the pick up location. Sure, I COULD drive all the way back and get a new car. Sure. I COULD drop the car off to get maintenance done, with the assurance you'd reimburse me. But the idea here is that i paid for a service. You did not hold up your end of the deal. And somehow I am penalized for the inconvenience.
The final conclusion was that as long as the vehicle "sounds okay" then I'm okay to drive it to my hearts content. My husband checked the oil level which was drastically low and the oil was caked entirely on the dipstick. The cars are clearly, poorly maintained, and when I am home in the future, I will never ever ever rent from them. Time with family is more valuable than saving a few bucks.
No apology. No sort of compensation. Just a bill and a "see you later" at the end of it all. Too bad.

Cons: Car had no cruise control, and it was a 2014. Cars not especially clean. Rental location is hard to find, and takes time to get to if you don't have a ride--no ubers around.

No one at counter
Pros: The price
Cons: There was no one at the rental counter even though it was 6.30pm. I waited a reasonable amount of time before taking the offer made by another representative.

New policy unaware of on kayak
Cons: Couldn't pay with my debit card at hertz. Kayak and priceline' all others do not have the disclaimer of hertz not being able to use the same debit card in the same day as you rent the car. I do not carry another credit card. I was not able to rent the car.
