Rented a pick up truck to do some moving, wasn’t available. They gave me a small suv with fresh cigarette smell, had to go back in and get a third rental at the airport. By then there was a long line.

A Cleaner car.
5.2 OkayJun 1 2020
Staff was fine, relatively easy check in and drop off.There were drink and food stains in the car which means it was definitely not cleaned. Normally this would just be a little level of concern but when a company pledges to sanitize their cars during a pandemic and doesn’t even do the bare minimum to clean it, it’s very very concerning and frankly a lie. We had to sanitize it ourselves out of fear.
9.2 ExcellentFeb 20 2020
They didn't have the style of car we requested. It worked out because we got an upgrade, but I don't understand why these companies advertise cars as being available only to have them not be. Overall very good experience though.

1.9 HorribleOct 5 2021
My scheduled pick up time was for 12 noon on 10/2/21. Arrived at 11:58 am and the worker walked out the door at 11:59 am and told the three of us who were scheduled to pick up vehicles that she had an appointment. Left us all hanging. Stranded in Buffalo without a car for three days. Beyond miserable experience.
1.9 HorribleOct 4 2021
Sketchy rental site. Cars are beat up. They attempted to give me a vehicle that wreaked of cigarettes. They take the customer surveys for you, as evidenced when they emailed me pictures of the cars. Go elsewhere.
1.9 HorribleSep 29 2021
When I arrived in Buffalo, I was informed that the Hertz Kayak made arrangements with was the Hertz at 4195 Gennese not 4200. Both show as at the airport. In was told they couldn’t help me and I would have to call back. I took a taxi to my hotel and did so in the morning. No answer. So I tried the app (Hertz). Customer service there was also slow to answer and ineffective. When I attempted to modify my reservation, to account for the lost day, and arrange for a car, Hertz increased my rate by 100%. I will NEVER be use them again, and am considering a complaint to the FTC.
1.9 HorribleSep 9 2021
I arrived on the first day of vehicle reservation shortly after 4PM. There was a vary long line at the Hertz counter and only two people working that Friday. By the time I got to the counter, it was after 5PM and there were still 50+ people in line. The counter worker informed me that my vehicle was in the yard across the street which closed at 5PM. He indicated that they were to busy to go get it and I'd have to come back the following day. The counter worker immediately called the next person in line. When I came back on Saturday, a manager informed me that my reservation was for Friday and they no longer had the vehicle I reserved and paid in full.
1.9 HorribleAug 30 2021
Staff was ill trained Car was dirty Waited over an hour for staff to get it together Had to walk 1/2 mile with bags and cross a 5 lane rd to get to the rental center Hertz just lost me as a customer

Staff was friendly, the car was nice, and we did not need to wait in line to pick up or drop off.
1.9 HorribleAug 17 2021
We reserved a car in Hertz, Buffalo airport, NY online and paid for it approx. a week ahead. We were supposed to pickup our rental at 5:30 pm. Hertz was closed; it changed its business hours closing at 5 pm. One of the employees, who was still there was disrespectful, rude, refused to provide her name. We saw plenty of cars in this Hertz' parking lot. The other Hertz, that was still open, refused to help us even though there were also plenty of cars available. We were stranded thousands of miles away from home. I called corporate tel.number and I was told "sorry you can cancel and we'll refund A PART of your payment". It was a super horrible experience! The worst customer service I experienced in 40 years I've been traveling all over the world.👎
1.9 HorribleAug 11 2021
No car provided. Hertz stranded me in Buffalo. Unacceptable.
10.0 ExcellentAug 9 2021
Walking a football field across the street from the airport terminal to the Hertz place on Genesee Ave saved us about $200 on a 5 day car rental....and would've saved us about $275 if I'd been quicker in deciding. I actually rented a cargo van online, but didn't need it and they were great about swapping it out for a car when I arrived. I am always amazed at how expensive it is to rent a car in Buffalo.

no way to get from Airport to this location, unless you can get across 6 lanes of traffic

7.2 GoodFeb 24 2017
Don't believe the price quotedNice new car, friendly service, easy in general.The price quoted was very different to the final price we paid. I know this was down to the insurance but really, when will someone start giving a full price quote including collision damage waiver etc - a quote that anyone would pay rather than these low quotes that then get totally inflated by around 40% of the original quote. It is misleading and very disappointing to always have to pay so much more when it comes down to the nitty gritty.

Easy pick up, but confusing drop off. Nobody present. I took video of mileage and full view of vehicle so they couldn't late claim I had damage. Keys and contract dropped in box.

Didn’t get the compact car I reserved. The cruise control that I rely on was iffy. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. Great fuel efficiency.

the staff at buffalo airport were very helpful.the car i got was smelly, the volume button didn’t work, the windshield wipers were not very effective. the cost for a one way drop off was extreme.
5.2 OkayOct 13 2019
The staff at Buffalo changed my rate on an upgrade instead of just an additional $10. I was very pleased with the drop off for the manager was able to correct the mistake that was done.The whole process of dropping off at a different location was good but please pay attention to the pickup location. Make sure you are getting what was quoted to you and save the email with your confirmation information. I questioned it before I left, but it wasn’t corrected but thankfully it was on the other end.
6.8 GoodDec 26 2018
Dirty carThe car itself was a hybrid, so very economical. It was a nice drive also and had Apple CarPlay.The car I was given was switched at the last minute between the desk and the pick-up kiosk. This particular car looked like a family of 4 had a food fight in it, and it reaked of deodorizer and cigarette smoke. The stains were kind of embarrassing, but I didn’t have time to deal with the hassle of calling and swapping it out.

The SuV was smoked out , had to hang two trees to get rid of the scent , ashes on steering wheel and dashboard made me feel it was cleaned or disinfected at all prior to me getting it. so I had to clean it prior to our trip $4 air fresheners and $5 wipes before I could get on road with my family disappointed in the over cleaning and no wiperfuild to start my trip

I called the helpline several times to extend my rental and change the drop off location but none of the people I spoke with were able to make the changes
1.9 HorribleAug 24 2021
I am paying a lot of money for a car rental and paying in advance yet when I showed up at the car rental location they don’t have a car ready for me or countless other travelers. On average everyone was waiting 2-3 hours for their car to be ready. It is unacceptable that the customer has to pay in advance to guarantee a car but the car rental company has no responsibility to have the car ready for you.
1.9 HorribleAug 9 2021
Very unprofessional I was advised once I arrived that there was no vehicle available for me and to cancel or reschedule for Saturday because my reservation was made within the last 24 hours! There was no further explanation nor was it stated with any compassion for inconvenience
4.0 OkayJul 5 2021
Staff at Buffalo was nice - first car was broken, so we had to take it back to get anotherOur contract said we could return it at 4am at LGA - figured out they aren't open then so the agent said we would have to miss our 6am flight because the return wasn't open until 6am. Didn't work with us on options - had to call back and wait on hold over an hour each time. One agent said the Roadside could have it towed at our expense from our location to the Dollar return at LGA - our expense. We call back to billing instead of the roadside people and they said there aren't options - we asked if we could return it to another location - she said JFK had an overnight drop but WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY TO GET FROM JFK TO LGA OUT OF OUR POCKET!! So wrong! We paid a $75 Uber to do that when Dollar contract says 4am return to LGA. - We called back to make sure we wouldn't be charged for returning to a different airport - good thing we did - haven't seen final bill, but hopefully we weren't charged for that as well!

Had NO IDEA about the extra $500 hold!! Car was filthy inside… I cleaned it myself.
2.0 MediocreJun 27 2021
Rental was 1.5hrs late. Was supposed to be ready at 11am. I didn't receive it til 1230. The line was 20 people long. The excuse why the suv was not ready, was other people got there before I did. The 4 runner was in bad shape. Shook like crazy 60-75mph. The cigarette 12v outlets didn't work.
