Cons: The vehicle I reserved was not available. My reservation had to be transferred to another location to get the vehicle I had asked for.
2.0 MediocreJun 29 2018
didn't have car for us, didn't help solve the problemCons: Despite our reservation, they had no car. Manager told us she couldn't help, so we should call customer service. They offered us more expensive reservation at location 6 miles away, but at a branch that closed in 8 minutes. And they didn't catch the impossibility of traveling 6 miles across suburban DC in 8 minutes, I did!

10.0 ExcellentApr 22 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. The drop off in New York is appealing. The most unfriendly, bossy and cold people I’ve experienced in a service industry.Cons: The people working in New York act like they hate their job and can’t be bothered to help you. When I was pulling into the hertz lot one of the workers were screaming at me to move up. He could have asked politely. I’ve lived in nyc for 15 years and this behavior is unacceptable. It’s a horrible client experience. Enterprise in NYC treats their customers much better.
10.0 ExcellentMar 30 2021
Pros: Staff was excellent and friendly. From The beginning i had a great experience. The car i got was clean and comfortable. It was ready for me when I arrived at the store. I was in and out in 10 minutes. I rented a mid-level SUV for my cross country road trip and got upgraded. It may have been because of lack of inventory but regardless it was a pleasant surprise. Best experience I’ve had renting a car.Cons: I was pretty happy with everything. I got more than i expected and the drop off was easy.

8.0 ExcellentJan 5 2021
Pros: Staff was good. Check in and Check out was quick and effortless.Cons: The car was covered in bird poop. Otherwise, everything else was great.
8.4 ExcellentApr 17 2019
Pros: Staff, drop offCons: No car when I arrived. I was taken to another location. Add an hour to my plans.
4.0 OkayApr 9 2019
Pros: The drop off was horrific because the hertz agent told me they were not able to release the hold charge they put on my credit card and would instead be sending me a voucher for a future rental. It took a phone call to the national office and a conference call with the bank that issued my credit cardCons: To resolve the issue. I have filed a consumer protection complaint.
10.0 ExcellentJan 10 2017
Great Staff!Pros: Fantastic group of staff at the Rockvville location! There was a snag with the server when I arrived to pick up my car, but the duty staff member (Corey) found a work around to get me out of the door. Also gave me a great recommendation for a local eatery. Amazing service all around!

3.2 MediocreAug 13 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and pickup/drop off was convenient and quick.Cons: The rental car I was given was an absolute disgrace. It was not cleaned, much less sanitized. It was a cheap tin can Kia that shook on the highway if you drove over 60mph. I did not feel safe at all. When I booked on Kayak, I saw I could get an SUV for just $1 more, but when I asked at the Avis counter they told me it would be an additional $20. I will not rent from Avis again with the condition of the unsanitary and unsafe car I was given. Very disappointed.
5.6 OkayDec 6 2016
Driving Cross CountryCons: Somehow the Avis system couldn't process the rental for more than 30 days even though I was able to book the car online for more than 30 days. This caused a problem and delayed me when I dropped off the car.

2.0 MediocreJun 1 2021
Pros: The staff wasn't outright rude at least.Cons: I rented the car for two days. Once I showed up, the staffer said that the rental would have to be for three days, since the car rental place was closed on Monday. He also mentioned it when going over all the other terms of the rental; if I wasn't paying attention I wouldn't have noticed it. When I protested and said that we had agreed for two days, the staffer shrugged and said it wasn't their problem. The staffer wasn't rude or unprofessional, he just didn't care.
2.0 MediocreFeb 12 2021
Pros: Nothing did not rent carCons: Not clear on their policies
8.4 ExcellentJul 25 2018
Pros: The car was in good condition and operated well throughout the rental period.Cons: The rental company had no record of the rental; we ultimately initiated a new rental agreement, which resulted in our paying an extra $50 over what was advertised on Kayak.
2.0 MediocreSep 19 2016
Worst experience with a rentalCons: I called 2 hours before arriving to confirm they had the vehicle. When I arrived they couldn't find the key and after an hour of making me wait said they didn't have a vehicle and blamed Kayak!!!
3.6 MediocreMar 30 2016
No more than okPros: Low priceCons: The car was dirty, inside and out. A dashboard light went off and I could not figure out what the problem was because the car had no manual. I had to fill out a report with the same data that they had on the computer in a time when I was in a hurry to return the car. the staff were not rude but could had been more helpful.
9.2 ExcellentMar 27 2016
Great customer servicePros: Flexibility to return the car at nearby location. Very reasonable rates for a compact rental.
7.6 GoodFeb 5 2016
Pros: The guy as a helper at the door was very nice(latino guy) and help full, he was there before 730 amCons: The attendent should be at the work at 7;30 I was waiting untill 8;20 untill she showd up and I missed my meetimg a big time, what do you thinking?
7.2 GoodDec 29 2015
Pros: Car was as booked - Dodge Caravan. Drop-off was very easy. Office was open on Sunday, when many other neighborhood rental locations were closedCons: I was surprised to find the middle row was captains' chairs, rather than bench chairs. This meant total capacity was only 7, and we were a little crowded with three adults in the back row. I found a receipt in the glove compartment, showing the previous renter paid $60 daily rate, whereas I paid $79.
5.6 OkayDec 1 2015
Dirty budget carPros: I couldn't find a better priceCons: Car was covered with bird droppings. One was on rearview mirror. When I mentioned this to manager, he said, that bird do this all the time, like it is ok to give dirty car to customer.
5.6 OkayNov 30 2015
Don't go there. It's not worth it!Cons: The business doesn't appreciate customer satisfaction at all. They didn't have our car ready at the time of our reservation. We had to wait for 2hrs 30 minutes, which made our experience by far the worst. The manager never apologized and the representative refused to have us talk to him to ask about a possible discount. Car was also poorly maintained; dirty carpets, it wasn't vacuumed, had a foul smell in the AC.
