I had a special car and got charged extra when I asked for an SUV.

I was prompted to purchase insurance through your platform, which I did through Allianz for an added fee. However, I was then alerted by the rental facility where I rented the car that this insurance does not function the same way as their insurance and that, if I got in an accident, I would have to contact Allianz and file a separate claim, which would make the process much more difficult and time-consuming. Essentially, I purchased an add on through your platform that did nothing. I would like a full refund for my insurance.I was prompted to purchase insurance through your platform, which I did through Allianz for an added fee.

They at least called to tell me the car I was to pick up that day, but had rented online a few days prior, was not availableIf they had called me before the day of the rental. The woman said they had been sold out of cars for days. I had rented it 2 or 3 days prior so they rented me a car that did not exist. They could have served me better to not rent me a car at all. Just tell me they aren't available so I don't have to end up paying more someplace else

Easy pick up and drop off.Car choice. I didn’t like the car I had at all.
8.4 ExcellentApr 25 2020
Staff were out in a wet snow renting cars !Consider having the fuel tank filled, as much easier to return to some increment < full, as was asked for with my rental.
4.8 OkayDec 31 2019
Friendly staffThe car was filthy and full of dog hair. It was also very out of alignment
9.6 ExcellentSep 7 2019
The staff was lovely. Dropoff was difficult as the 25 River st address leads to the way out of the parking lot. Couldn't figure out how to get to the entrance.

The staff was very friendly and helpful-especially Vladimir.Windshield was not clean enough. Had issues with the back-up camera and the radio.

I needed to pick up and drop off AFTER hours, which I coordinated with Medford Hertz PRIOR to arriving. They educated me on joining the Hertz Gold Plus program and completing ANY car rental, to activate the after-hrs Medford pick up to "skip the counter". No one else had cars in Boston Logan, so the day before, I rented a car for a few hrs in my hometown in order to get the Medford MA skip the counter car. The rest of my experience was great too! If you try to pick up after they are closed and don't pre-arrange, you will likely NOT get a car. Thank you Shavaun!

yes drop off easy. staff easy to work wihta bit of a wait when we arrived to pick up the car. Some confusion as the main person workng wiht us was dfd
4.0 OkayMay 10 2021
The staff who helped me at pick-up was very kind.1. the car smelled like cigarettes. 2. They did not have the class of vehicle which I reserved, and I was given the worst vehicle i've driven in my life. I needed a car for a golf trip, and the vehicle I was given couldn't even fit 1 bag of golf clubs in the trunk.
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
The staff was excellentThe broken rear view mirror was a repeating problem. It would not stay in position. I had to stop numerous times to readjust it because it would close onto the door while on the highway making it impossible to see out the back on the right side of the van. Not acceptable.
7.6 GoodSep 12 2020
Good behavior of people working and nice carsHelpline services and more instructions on returning car instructions when the store is closed
10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2020
The staff at Hertz Rental Car were helpful & friendly. The car was comfortable & was the best price out there. The office was in a location that was easy to get to.The Hertz location that I went to did not accept debit cards. It would have made my experience much better if I had been informed of that ahead of time as I had to go back home to get my credit card. Even better, I thought they did not have a viable reason for not accepting debit cards in the first place.
2.8 MediocreJun 23 2020
Car smelled as if four people Chain smoked in it. Rental agency had no other cars on the lot to exchange. Felt sick entire time - smell was so strong. I ordered a VW Jetta and got a Chevy Malibu.
10.0 ExcellentNov 11 2019
I love having a Hertz so close to home. Not a good choice if you're renting from the airport but for Camberville people, this is a great option!
6.0 GoodNov 11 2019
They were not clear about their gas charges or their return instructions.
5.2 OkayOct 7 2019
The reservation was made for 6pm at a location which closes at 6pm meaning there was no way they could give me a car.

We provided with a wrong car rental pickup location. We had to rent another car from a different company. We lost an hour for getting different car. We requested full refund from the credit card company. We are very disappointed.
2.0 MediocreApr 9 2022
Booked the car online in advance and got the order number. But when I went to pick up the car the office was closed and there was no staff, but the address was confirmed correct, almost 60 minutes back and forth to the hotel for this. unacceptable!
9.2 ExcellentFeb 24 2018
Thrify car rental convenient to Logan airportit was very straightforward to take public transit to this Thrifty location from Logan, for no charge and it took perhaps a half-hour which I thought fast. My car performed well and was both new and clean on the inside.
2.0 MediocreMar 7 2017
Poor Customer ServiceThey don't have any information. Their policies are waste. Their toll charges are compulsory if you don't take it they put fine on you. Thier insurance charges are ao high. Just having car charges low as compared to other companies doesn't matter overall thrifty is super expensive including all insurance toll and other services. They don't have decent cars too.
8.4 ExcellentNov 30 2016
Small office, but decent serviceCar and service was as expected.Separation of collision and liability insurance was a surprise, but it turns out that's common.
3.2 MediocreOct 21 2016
I had booked my car rental 4 months in advance to ensure I would get the car I wanted for a road trip through New England. However, when I got to Thrifty they said they could not find the keys for the car I had requested. I had wanted a small car to save on gas mileage and the elevation I would be driving on. Instead they gave me a mid size car that went through a lot of gas. Also, the car reeked of cigarette smoke. The smell was so strong we had to invest in air freshners which did very little for the smell. I had tried spraying perfume as well which was only a momentary fix. We kept the windows down for most of the drive. When we would turn on the AC, a very sour smell would come through the vents. Also, we had been told rolls would be covered; however, before leaving we told the car had not been registered to EZ Pass so we would be responsible for all tolls, which added up. Long story short, do not rent from this company.

Top tips for renting a car in Somerville

  • Very few things give the same thrill as going on vacation or even a business trip to a new city. If you want to make the most out of your Somerville trip, renting a car from car rentals in Somerville will be an ideal option. You'll have the flexibility to skip on public transportation, which in turn will result in utter freedom to explore any part of the city on your own schedule. You can personalize your trip as you deem fit and enjoy comfort, safety, and privacy, especially if you have young kids. You'll be free of restrictions, and you can pack as much cargo as you like since you have your own trunk, depending on the activities you intend to engage in. Imagine having the flexibility to venture out of the city to check out Old Sturbridge Village, about 58 miles away, or as far as Martha's Vineyard, about 94 miles away from the city, at your convenience.
  • The Rental Car Center at the Boston Logan International Airport is a few minutes away from the terminal. You'll find a shuttle bus at the lower level of the terminal that will take you directly to the center. You'll find Somerville car rentals along with the four-level garage, some of them including Enterprise, Thrifty, and Hertz.
  • Jaywalking has been an ongoing issue in Somerville for a couple of years now, to the extent of the police fining pedestrians for it. Route 28 and East Main Street are especially a problem for this. In downtown Somerville, be wary of other drivers who may not necessarily be concerned about running red lights. Avoid turning at a red light, going over sidewalks, and turning on a double yellow line.
  • Interstate 93 southbound in the morning commute at around 7am can be quite congested. It goes on until 9am, after which it dies down to manageable traffic. Evening traffic starts backing up at about 3pm, and you can expect a gridlock by 5pm, only to move a lot faster around 7pm. Highway 28 can be just as bad, so try to avoid these rush hours or give yourself extra time if you must commute. Downtown Somerville can also be congested during these times, so try to move earlier or later than everyone else to enjoy the road.
