The front desk was disorganized and chaotic. Instructions were not clear and staff was unfriendly. When we droped off the car they told my husband to stop cleaning the car and took the keys. Fortunately I had read the fine print, in our contract, which stated that if the car was not clean we could be charged a fee (we had a small pet with us. I had to go back in, ask for the keys back and finish the job. There were so many 'one offs' in their service and attitude, that they gave us points toward a future rental. I thought that was great, until we went to redeem them and found out there were not enough points to apply and restrictions. Overall not a good experience and I would not recommend Hertz to a friend

Left without words - family showed up to rent and they said we could not due to a parking ticket from last year - however we have never rented from them before….

Pickup and drop off were quick and easy and the price they charged us was the price they quoted (unlike Thrifty who will triple the quoted price). Always enjoy using Hertz.

I was thrilled to save $$ by renting off site from the airport. With a little research I found the most convenient location for my ultimate destination..took Lyft (cheap) to the site. Was out in minutes. And on the return got there early and an agent saw me in the lot waiting for them to open, came and took care of me early...:) They way to go. Lisa S.

Everything went very well... We still have the cargo van for a few more days and will return it on Friday... The van was clean and comfortable and had great power on the road... All in all, Hertz did us very good... No complaints what-so-ever...

Hertz was great. It was Kayak that was the problem. My search was for rental cars at the San Diego airport. The top results that came up were for a location 20 miles north of the airport. Not being familiar with the area, I selected a good rate for a vehicle at Hertz, and after taking the complementary shuttle to the car rental hub, I was told that my reservation was for a different location. Because it was prepaid, they couldn’t accommodate me at the airport location. So my affordable rental ended up costing me an additional $75 in taxi fare. Thankfully, Hertz was able to arrange for me to return the car to the airport location. I won’t be using Kayak/Priceline again!

Wrong location. Place closed when I got there.

I rented a pickup truck from Hertz. It was very easy to pick up and drop off. On both, I spent less than 15 minutes on pick up and drop off. The truck was in great shape and was a pleasure to drive. The only problem I have with this truck is that now I want one for myself.

I love the smooth efficiency. More choices would have been nice but I also liked it that the place was small—on balance I prefer the smaller place even if it meant fewer choices of cars.

They had no cars. After it was confirmed and booked. Caused a huge problem for me. Distastrous experience.

Rental experience was easy.Would have preferred the Ford Transit over the GM van as the comfort and amenities were nicer and the ride and handling is much better in the Ford.

Did not have the car I requested and the car they gave had an oil problem which then had to be returned

Very HappyIt is so rare today to have a pleasant experience with any company in the service industry. My experience was one of those rare instances! Your representative was pleasant and efficient. The car was ready when we arrived and the paperwork took less than 5 minutes (which was very important because we had a 13 month old who needed a nap.) When we returned the car, the cost was exactly what had been agreed upon -- no hidden fees. Thanks for making this part of our trip run so smoothly!!

My experience totally sucked! I booked a car online through kayak. I specified that I was picking the car up at the San Diego airport. As it turns out when I went to actually get the car at the San Diego airport the very well-mannered clerk informed me that the car was actually closer to del Mar in San Diego county which is a $50 taxi ride away. Talk about bait and switch. .. I managed to get another rental at San Diego airport but I will never get snookered again

I arrived at the San Diego AVIS counter to find that they rented me a car at another location and my preferred car model was unavailable. I had to start the rental process all over again. I felt at a distinct disadvantage dealing with them at the last minute. I was either lucky to get any type of car or taken advantage by the confusing terms they used to explain the last minute charges. I ended up spending $944 for 10 days (originally it was under $400); the most expensive part of the vacation. Thanks for considered my (bad) experience. Mike Bonoff

Bait and switchI had requested a car rental near the San DIego airport and when I got to Avis, was told that the pickup for the car was about 20 minutes away and it was suggested that I Uber there. I didn't have time for that, so they referred me to a private car rental service that provides transportation primarily for missionaries heading for Mexico. The private agency owners were very accommodating, but I paid twice the price quoted, got a car that didn't have a functioning speedometer, a brake light that wouldn't turn off, and another dial on the dash that was out of control. Overall, it was a big disappointment and delayed arrival at my destination by about an hour or so.
