I was not able to use my debit card to rent the car. It was frustrating to not have been told upfront. We ended up canceling our reservation because I don't own a debit card.More openness about payment policy.

Nothing.Went to pick up the car to find out there were no cars available. Spent over $40 in Lyft just to end up careless for a 5day trip we planned months ago. Complete waste of time. The staff was rude and didn’t care.

The process was very quick and easy!Someone had smoked in it previously and I was not made aware. There were attempts to cover it up, but it still just smelled like cigarettes and air freshener. It was pretty bad.

The car was nice, the clerk was friendly.Scheduled online. When I arrived, there were no cars available, and I had to wait approximately an hour for a car. The car was clean on the outside, but the inside had some spills that weren't wiped up and smelled like marijuana. No after hours drop off instructions were provided, closed at 6:00.

The first agent I spoke with was boderline rude. I was the only person in line and was waiting patiently. She sent me across the airport for a facemask before she would speak to me. Under normal circumstances not a big deal. That day I was dealing with a sprained ankle. Not a fun walk. Second issue, the Rogue we got had no running headlights. We discovered this the second night there when we attempted to drive home, in the dark. Ended up calling my brother to come get us and locked the car up in a convenience store parking lot. Third was driving back to the airport to get the car replaced. I bought the tank of gas. The clerk initially stated I would have to buy another tank of gas. Thankfully, she understood the issue and I did not have to pay for another tank of gas. The second female clerk I spoke to was better, nicer, and much more pleasant than the first one.

Nothing. Everything about this experience has been the worst I’ve ever encountered.My rental car was given away with no alternatives, I had to pay double to reserve one elsewhere, I then am over charged in addition to being accused of having the vehicle involved in an accident.

Was advised on day of vacation that our vehicle was not available. Call was disconnected by Gwen and then Kim @ Hertz Customer Service. Husband had to get a ride to the Hertz location in Corpus Christi TX to reach a human re: our situation. Customer Service Rep @ counter could not get our card to swipe correctly and said my husband could not have the car once he got there. Another person helped and swiped card on another credit card machine & rental was finally released to my husband. We have a special needs child and had not transportation until this matter was FINALLY resolved.We reserved a rental 2 weeks prior - it needed to be ready upon our arrival. Customer service should not disconnect callers. Rep at Hertz counter was unfriendly.

The vehicle was not cleaned inside or out. It had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke inside. The staff was not helpful at all and said that no other vehicle was available. I should have canceled and requested a refund!!The paperwork clearly stated the vehicle was a no smoking vehicle AND that there is a $400 cleaning fee! I'd like to know if these clowns charged that to the previous renters!

It was a surprise that on top of the payment I owed $80 in taxes. This negated the benefit of this transaction vs other reservations. Then, my flight arrived at 9PM. Hertz was closed. I could not get a rental car for one night as none were available so I had to Uber for $60 more. So not reserving here next time.

Make sure you have a major credit card to put a $200 hold after you already paid for it online. Didnt tell me that and I got dropped off at the airport to pick up the vehicle. Stranded.

Lack of information and waste of timePicking the car and reservation was easy and the customer service woman was awesome, if I had warning on the deposit this would have been an amazing experienceThere was lack of information online about there being a double your cost deposit so I went unprepared and I live 30 min from the nearest pick up. If it would have been posted online that you'll need double your total in a deposit I would have gotten things prepared with my credit card. Ended up not getting the rental and cancelling plans to see family I haven't seen in 7 years.

CluelessNot much really other than the location of the desk in the Corpus Christi airportThe rude customer service, inability to work with them to correct mistakes that they made. Some examples include, being told to give the damage sheet to the guard on the way out... there was no guard nor anyone around. I told them I wanted to extend my reservation. I was instructed to call in later with that. When I did, I was told I had to drive 4 hours back to the location I picked up the vehicle in order to change my original reservation. I followed the instructions of the desk attendant at the desk of pick up. I was then told since I cannot drive 8 hours (4 hours each way) out of my way, I would be charged a late fee.

Total lack of communicationThe two locations i rented from, San Antonio and Corpus Christi, have zero communication between them. I believe this is the main reason for my having to pay nearly double the estimated rate. When i tried to explain this to the Corpus Christi location, they had no idea or explanation. Truly horrible

The desk agent was less than friendly and I was told that the car I wanted wasn't available at the location I booked it and would have to go pick one up at the airport or wait 3-4 hours for one to arrive at the current location. Drove the 20 minutes (out of our way) to the airport to pick up a car. The car we received was filthy and smelled so bad we drove for the first 30 minutes with the windows down. Following our drop off- I received a bill for the gas for the car from the first location to the airport location- which I was not told I would be responsible for and seemed like since I was doing them a favor, should not have been charged. We were also charge $300 for something I can't figure out and when we call to talk to someone, we are disconnected or receive a busy signal. So frustrating!

The rental was fine. They charged it to our account but it was $200 moreThe only thing we had problems with is cost. We were not charged what we were shown on the computer

That I booked a truck and it would be ready for pick up.The customer service at the rental place could of been a lot better. Having a truck available would of definitely been a plus. Not being frowned upon fir using a third party agency to book what should of been my rental. Having the truck I reserved or anything to accommodate the size of the vehicle I rented. Again the customer service sucked.

Car hire excess insurance in Corpus Christi

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Corpus Christi 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 Corpus Christi.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Corpus Christi car rental.
