Staff was friendly....Trying to find the pick up/drop off location was not easy....the hours on the web site are different than the actual hours... was stuck at the airport at 8:00 p.m with my 6yr old son with no ride to get a car because they were closed... but the web site said they were open to 1a.m..and when I called to change the hours I rented the car for nobody mentioned the change in hours!!!! I called two days before I was to pick it up!!

the staff and pickup/dropoff was greatThe car needed maintenance when we picked it up. Two tires were soft and needed to be filled with air every two days, and there was no wiper fluid.

It was not communicated to me that the location would not be open when I was there to pickup the car. Luckily hertz had one

Show up to pick up car and counter closed.Maybe you guys could know what time the place you are renting the car from is open. Thst would have definitely been better
2.0 MediocreJan 5 2021
We arrived 30mins after the lot closed. Arrived the next day to retrieve vehicle and waited 2 hours just to be told we'd have to wait an additional hour or 2 to get a rental. I canceled it. Not satisfied at all.

If I would’ve got my refund

Not worth the 5 bucks you save. They will charge you taxes at pickup that arent in online price.

1.9 HorribleOct 17 2021
Only car company that never has anything ready to go for reservations. I had to wait two hours and then instead of a full size SUV take a horrible old minivan with no features that was scary to drive then they wouldn't even give a discount. They are weird A F and wanted to take selfies on pickup too. Would have had to wait what looked like another two hours at least if I wanted to hold for what I actually reserved two months ahead of time.

Thank you so much for waiving the out of state fee and gas fee due to hurricane ida, you were a blessing throughout this process!
4.0 OkayOct 6 2020
Customer service was very poor. Demanding, rude agent. I love enterprise but service agent was terrible.
2.0 MediocreJun 13 2020
The air conditioning was very nice on such a warm day.I could not get the car because I didn't have a physical credit card. My replacement card is in the mail but apparently they have to have the card to swipe. My virtual card was not acceptable.

You flat out or misrepresent on the reservation and email . The actual car class is different when you arrive.
10.0 ExcellentOct 23 2018
Easy and AffordableI really liked that there was not an extra fee for dropping off in another location. A lot of places do this, but I found this deal through kayak and it was great for our budget.The lady who assisted me in picking up my car did not know that I already purchased insurance so she tried to sell me insurance again. If a person wasn't paying attention, they would have bought insurance twice.

PerfectionThe service was excellent. The car was excellent.
4.0 OkayApr 24 2017
Customer serviceI got a pretty decent rate.The customer service is terrible, in that the counter is not sufficiently staffed. Once you get to an agent, it goes smoothly.
9.6 ExcellentApr 19 2017
Reserved car wasn't immediately available, but was made available quickly
9.2 ExcellentApr 16 2017
Great deal but watch out for subtle upgrade at counterGot a suburban for a great price, car was clean and almost Brand new. Shuttles ran about every 5-10 minutes to not much waiting.the rental was for "Tahoe or similar". At the counter I was asked If we wanted the Tahoe or a similar sized Infinity. She really sold The infinity but never mentioned it was actually an upgrade to a premium vehicle. Had i not noticed The upcharge on our paperwork when she printed it we would have been charged more than twice Our reservation price

Bad wipers second driver fees way too much, especially when considering having a second driver is a safeta issue

Fantastic rentalLove Hertz service and their price
10.0 ExcellentMar 16 2017
One small problemJust about everything, plus KAYAK saved me about 33% of what Hertz wouldve charged.I absolutely hated the push button start (Too many times where I have to jump out of the car, either with the "key" in my pocket and the car honks at me or I leave rhe key inside the vehicle (unsafe). Case in point: on one occasion, I drove about 60 miles with the key literally on the hood of the car (inside where the windshield wipers are). Not a KAYAK issue, but a manufacturer issue. An issue nonetheless.
8.0 ExcellentMar 14 2017
Hertz tried to charge me for Taxes.Hertz tried to charge me for the taxes for the rental even though I already paid for them through you. What a pain.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some South Houston car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in South Houston.
