Late night drop off
Cons: When I picked up the car I notified 2 different staff members in Philadelphia of existing damages and I took pictures of same. Hoping that the documentation of damage prior to taking possession will be adequate to avoid charges for preexisting damages.

No cars
Cons: There were no cars when we arrived to pick up our car at the scheduled reservation time. The agent had to call people who were late, to bring their cars back. We had to wait 45 minutes. We were not happy in Happy Valley PA :-(

Would rent a car from them again
Pros: We rented it through my girlfriend's debit card, and the amount that they put a hold on was released a few days later as promised. Pickup and dropoff were smooth, the car was very clean and the representatives were friendly except for the dropoff lady.
Cons: The lady who accepted the car at the drop off at JFK wasn't the nicest as she asked us what the scratch on the right side of the car was all about in a judgmental way. It had been there all along and it was even marked on the car figure that was attached to the keychain. After a long trip I would have expected to see a nicer greeting from a Hertz employee.

Pros: long lines to drop the keys and contract. and the contract was not on the computer. We had to call the other day to inform at what time we drop the car. They put the burden of inform on us, after we already returned the car. Worst experience ever

Rental fee raised 4 times
Pros: Car types were sufficient
Cons: The rental fee showed on kayak was 80+ for two days, but I was charged for 320+ when I rent the car at Hertz in the state college airport. I was surprised but the Hertz staffs kept telling me that the fee was for tax blablabla... And I was too tired to bargain.
4.0 Okay
May 21 2017
Cons: The car was not ready when we showed up, and the car was a smaller size than what we reserved. It was a one-way rental, and I was told at my destination that they had never seen a contract like the one I had been issued. It took 24 hours to resolve it.

Hertz is the worst?
Cons: I showed up for my reservation and they didnt have a car for me.... worse, they couldn't issue a refund at the desk. Instead, I had to call Hertz corporate, which was a nightmare.
