Customer Service
Pros: Due to a delay in our luggage arriving, we couldn't pick up the reservation as scheduled. The next day we found out the car we booked was no longer available, but fortunately the local team was able to locate it at another location, and drove us there to get it.

Jan 7 2020
Pros: The vehicle performed nicely throughout the trip.
Cons: Both pick up and drop off were less than stellar experiences. In pick up, I felt jerked around a bit when they offered me an upgrade with unsuitable price increases. Also, when I picked up the vehicle, it had a distinct smell of cigarettes which I find quite distasteful. Fortunately, the smell went away after driving it for a few hours. More problematic however was that the gas tank was not full. This was during the time when PG&E was shutting down power throughout CA. I felt lucky to make it out of the state without running out of gas and finding myself stuck because stations wouldn't be able to use their pumps. On drop off, the town of Everett was completely torn up with construction. It would have been nice if Hertz had provided me with instructions in advance for how to get to the rental office. Also, the agent tried a joke which completely backfired. We worked through it, but it was not fun.

Terrible experience, got reservation cancelled wit
Cons: The agent called ~18 hours in advance to confirm the rental and I confirmed everything. There was no mention of their right to cancel the reservation. The day after when I come to pick up the car at 2:45 (~2 hours later than when I filled in Kayak), they told me that I was late and they canceled my reservation. If I want the same car, I have to pay ~$30 more a day. I didn't agree so I also lost my insurance paid to the car. This is the worst car rental experience I've ever seen. Please stay away from this company.

ACE CAR RENTAL
Pros: The people at Ace who work there where very friendly and helpful, there was not a lot of wait time and they made it very easy to with all the paper. The price for the rental was cheaper then all the other places. Trust me I looked around. The return was just as smooth and easy as getting the car.I would rent from them again. Good bargain for sure.
Cons: There are two things I didn't like about ACE. However, these are strictly cosmetic. The first was the pick up, they come pick you up in a rather old looking van that should be traded in for somethin newer, the second is the place looks a bit on the shabby side and in a bad neighborhood. I will say I had no trouble coming or going from that place and I didn't feel my spidey Senses tingle. The shuttle van driver was curious, friendly and other then riding in an old van all was good.

250 miles per day limit - 25 cents per after
Cons: When i booked this van online the contract stated unlimited milages. However, when i picked up the car at ACE, they had their local policy with 250 miles per day. It was a huge surprise to me
