10.0 ExcellentJun 5 2021
Pros: Easy pickup, drive off, and drop off.Cons: The car’s inside wasn’t as clean as it could be. The windshield was very smudged on the inside.
10.0 ExcellentJan 7 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off was painless and easy. The Alamo counter is shared with National and Enterprise. Everybody was friendly and helpful.Cons: Car was outstanding, clean and practically new. Overall experience was great!
7.2 GoodNov 1 2020
Pros: staff friendly, located on site at airport so easy drop off and pickup.Cons: car smelled smokey
10.0 ExcellentOct 7 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was on my way quickly, which I really appreciate.Cons: Could think of nothing else.
9.6 ExcellentJul 31 2020
Cons: Drop off at SFO was complicated for someone to pick me up after drop off.
2.0 MediocreApr 1 2020
Cons: Trip. Nacelles due to global pandemic. I still got charged.
5.2 OkayDec 24 2019
Pros: The staff in Missouri was very helpful, apologetic and willing to work with me to get into another car. Review for him is great! Overall, it being booked only an hour before, I was happy to get into anything so my review is only to highlight some things. I'd use your company again for the speediness and rate alone.Cons: The cleanliness. And the maintenance. CLEANLINESS: The car was pretty dirty inside. It still smelled heavily of cigarettes, had about 5-6 cigarette burn holes in various seats, ceiling and roof, and there was just general dirt and dust in there. Lots of stains. Probably the filthiest interior of a rental I've ever been in. Again, the staff was extremely apologetic and seems like he was ready for me to ask for him to fix it, but I was happy to have something in a short notice. I told him don't worry about it, just please mark it on the pre-drive damage sheet (which showed the exterior damage, many decent size dents) so I wouldn't be charged. He obliged. MAINTENANCE: The maintenance lights showed it was way overdue for service. Warning comes on as soon as you start the car that reads, "Service Required (-4678mi, -9days)". The car only has 44,668 miles so I was surprised at how beat up it felt mechanically. Overall, the car ran fine, got good gas mileage and was reasonably comfortable for my needs and timeframe. Other customers likely would've had an argument to make.
10.0 ExcellentJun 20 2019
Pros: Lydia was super. It was easy-in and easy-out. Drop off was also quick and easy.
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2018

10.0 ExcellentDec 16 2020

6.4 GoodJul 14 2020
Pros: New fuel efficient car. Quick service. The rental agents were polite and professional.Cons: The vehicle wasn’t cleaned well before pick up. There were what appeared to be milk dribble on the back seat and dog hair through out the car. It’s difficult to get in and out of the location.
4.0 OkayFeb 2 2020
Pros: Terrible. The whole experience was a scam. Couldn't pickup vehicle at the airport which it didn't tell me till I get to the counter & then I'm told I have to get a cab or uber to take me to the location. Never will I rent again.Cons: As far as I'm concerned. You would have to go a very long way to improve. Totally terrible experience. Never again!!!

10.0 ExcellentJun 30 2020
Pros: The drop off was easy and the young man who rented us the Jeep Wrangler was especially helpful in getting us rolling.
2.0 MediocreJun 22 2020
Pros: I did not rent from budgetCons: You should adversities the credit card and debit card policies more clearly for the companies you provide rentals for.
6.8 GoodFeb 18 2020
Pros: the carCons: They try to sell other car, or other insurance. I wanted the car that i ordered.
6.0 GoodFeb 3 2020
Cons: The actual cost was $100+ more than my confirmed price. It could have been due to the insurance I purchased, but it seems high for insurance for 2 days.
8.8 ExcellentMay 31 2019
Cons: The return procedure was really confusing and the rep at the window a tiny bit condescending but otherwise it was smooth, quick and good.
8.4 ExcellentMay 26 2018
Pros: We liked the car. It handeled very nicely. It was clean inside.Cons: I did not like the fact that we were not shown the features of the car. No one takes you to the car. The lot was full of care and we had a difficult time finding it. There were a few rental companies whit
2.0 MediocreMay 9 2018
What a jokePros: NothingCons: All kinds of paperwork and they do a credit check and don't tell you that until you get up there you've already had the schedule so we went to Enterprise great place no hassle
3.2 MediocreApr 19 2018
Cons: I rented a one way for 24 hours in Denver to Missouri. I turned it in at the 24 hour mark but because the time zone change it looked like i had it an extra hour, which they charged me $280 extra. They couldn’t fix my bill, made me call the Denver desk which no one answered and then made me call five other numbers and no one could help me. Even the worker at the desk was frustrated.
10.0 ExcellentJan 31 2018
Pros: Counter person was very nice and upgraded us for half the daily price, into a brand new car. Would have enjoyed our trip very much if new cars were designed to be more driver friendly. Customer Service at the secondary insurance company offered, was terrific when I wasn't able to find the information I needed.Cons: The rental car place at the airport needs to have someplace for drop off and pick up drivers to park while doing business with them instead of having to park in the pay lots. And, it would be nice if when you rent a car online, you actually get the car that you picked out. First we were supposed to get a RAV4, then a Ford Escape, when we got to the rental agency we were told a KIA Sorento. Chose to upgrade to a Jeep Cherokee.
3.6 MediocreDec 31 2017
Not HappyPros: The return agent was friendly. Return process easy.Cons: Reserved a RAV4 was given a Kia. I guess to some they are comparable - they are not. Pick up agent was annoyed when I stated that I did not want/ do not like Kia’s. Paid weekly rad, was charged an extra day even though I had car less than 6 24 hour days. Could have done without dead beetles flew out of defroster. Tried calling about warning lights on dashboard - was on musak hold for so long each time, never happened asked to a live person. Could go out n but thinking about it is making me angry all over again.

10.0 ExcellentApr 25 2021
Pros: Easy drop off for very early flight. Prepaid fuel also a great idea. No gas stations open near airport.
6.0 GoodMar 8 2021
Pros: I like the vehicle that I was givenCons: I have never had the best luck with Avis. Several times, I have been charged twice for a rental. And it’s taken over a month to be reimbursed. One of those times, I had to reach out three times to get my refund.
2.0 MediocreDec 29 2020
Pros: I did not book with you - I'm not sure why I received an email asking me to rate my car rental experience.
2.8 MediocreOct 13 2020
Pros: We did get an upgraded vehicle because there was no vehicle that we requested availableCons: The vehicle outside had been keyed heavily. No one from the staff came out to inspect the vehicle with us. This was a Dodge Caravan and literally, the passenger side sliding door came off the track and was not able to close completely. The wind noise from the door not closing was ridiculous.
10.0 ExcellentSep 28 2020
Pros: Everyone was friendly and helpful. Very easy pickup and drop off. No problems!
6.4 GoodSep 4 2020
Pros: Online booking through Kayak was easy and affordable. Check out and check in were simple and efficient.Cons: The vehicle had that specific aroma of one that had been smoked in. The company had probably paid a big fee to have cleaning done but the residual odor is still there, especially picked up by non-smokers. Sorry Avis, send it though the treatment another time.
4.4 OkayFeb 13 2020
Pros: Staff was great and drop off easy.Cons: I assumed there would be a shuttle to your off site location. The taxi ride there was $34.00.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 8 2020
Pros: Staff friendly and respectful
4.8 OkayJan 7 2020
Pros: The counter person at pickup was an automaton with zero emotion and zero eye contact, canned responses. We were a chore, a task, a box to be checked - not a customer.Cons: see above

6.0 GoodJan 12 2021
Pros: Drop off was quick and easy.Cons: The place was hard to find! It was behind a strip mall with no signage on the street. The inside of the car could have been cleaner especially during Covid. We had to wipe everything down with sanitizing wipes before our trip.
2.0 MediocreSep 18 2018
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCEPros: NOTHING!Cons: Booked online during travel. Got confirmation. Then called to confirm location was at airport. Reached destination airport to be told wrong location... AND NO CAR at any location because they called me and because I didn’t answer res was cancelled. I’m flying... that’s why I needed a rental car?!?!?!!! Agents at desk just did not care at all. Will never use the brand again ever!!!!!!
4.8 OkayAug 3 2018
Altima conditionPros: Upon returning car, I expressed to clerk, Taylor, that front bumper was scratched when I initially picked up car. Taylor stated that wouldn’t be an issue since I initially picked up car in that condition.Cons: Receive phone call regarding scratched front bumper and I had to take the time to write an email and re-explain condition of car at time of pickup, along with pictures. Poor communication between the two Hertz car company. Customer service should have handled this situation. Hoping to soon be informed of the confirmation of my email.
2.0 MediocreJul 22 2018
They cancelled, charged me and then I had to call 4 times for my $Pros: The fourth person I finally got to help me receive my money why backCons: The fact that I made a reservation. They called me to cancel it. Told me I would not be charged. Charged me fully then only gave half of my money back due to cancellation ! ( which they did due to lack of cars) then took me a week to receive the rest of my money.
2.0 MediocreJun 23 2018
Cons: Never got the car. You cancelled my reservation. Worst service ever.
2.0 MediocreJun 9 2018
Didn’t happenCons: I got a reservation through Kayak only to find out an hour before I was to pick up the car, that they didn’t have any. So that was awesome!
2.0 MediocreMay 23 2018
Hertz called me 30min before my reservation and cancelled on me.Cons: They cancelled my reservation
5.6 OkayDec 5 2017
Pros: The car was clean and in good working condition.Cons: They did not have a vehicle available in the class I reserved, so I paid for an intermediate car and only got an economy/compact car. They comped my gas, but I didn't even get any notice so I could choose a different company that had the car I wanted. When I made the reservation, it said something about "checking availability" when I picked the class of car I wanted, so one would assume that meant the company only rents what it knows it will have at the scheduled pickup time.
6.0 GoodSep 23 2017
Cons: When I booked this rental, it was for the Springfield airport pickup and drop off but when I got there, it wasn't and I had to go to town to get it and then pay an additional $5 to drop off at the airport when I left. Talk about a waste of my vacation time!!!
10.0 ExcellentSep 21 2017
Pros: The pick up and drop off was fast and friendly. The car did great. Was overall a great and easy experience. I recommend Hertz when renting a car!!

Pros: Counter has only one person at drop off and no one in the return lot. That one counter person was overwhelmed with people wanting to rent and return cars - not their fault.Cons: More staff at the rental counter.
10.0 ExcellentMar 23 2021
Pros: Yes very much so
8.0 ExcellentFeb 15 2021
Cons: The car could have been started and warmed up. We flew into an ice storm and had to wait in a cold car for 20 minutes before the ice could be scraped off the windows. Besides that, all was well!
2.0 MediocreNov 24 2020
Pros: Nothing this was a horrible experience.Cons: I didn't get my rental car. The payless rep said I could not use a prepaid rental car transaction to pick up the car from the airport. Allow me to get my rental car on time and use the prepaid function.

2.0 MediocreDec 21 2020
Cons: I was given a upgrade that was a Chevy Tahoe rather than a midsize SUV. But that Tahoe had a leaky tire with three plugs in it and I had to keep pulling over and refilling the tire on on a long drive. Also they gave me a car that did not have the left rear turn signal working. Then when I went to turn the car in they said that I had change the car and they charge me $2000 instead of the 299 a week. I’m very disappointed. I will not be using national car rental again.

Cons: Ad misrepresented size - billed as "Large". Actually was compact--to upgrade was almost 50% more. Then, fuel charge of over $13 added even though we chose, and did, bring car back full. Service to pick up and return car very slow. NO MORE Dollar!
10.0 ExcellentAug 22 2016
Great experience, easyPros: Good car, fair price, nice staffCons: Slightly confusing add on options, slightly pushy about them
4.4 OkayJul 14 2016
The price was pretty good, but you get what you paPros: The car had fuel when I picked it up.Cons: The delay at the counter was excessive. I arrived to pick up the car a little early. I was willing to pay any difference, and add the time to my rental if they needed that 30 minutes. I was told that it was a manager rule that they could not let me have the car any earlier than my reservation time. I was surprised the manager didn't want to make more on the rental, but I figured "OK, not a problem". I told the agent that i would be sitting 10 feet away waiting. At 10 minutes past the appointed time, I again approached the desk. The agent said "Oh, I've been calling for you for the last 15 minutes". I doubt the validity of that statement, but whatever, I got the car. I then found that the car was programmed so that the music volume would only go 1/2 up, and the car speed was limited to 80 mph. I found the last tidbit out while passing a truck, on a busy two lane highway. Overall, the hassle just wasn't worth the savings.
