Great customer service. No pressure as to buying the extra insurance. Loved being directed to the midsize cars in the lot and choosing which one I wanted to drive.

Hidden fees that were not discussed when booked. Would not have booked if I would have known. I would have stayed at the rental car companies by the airport.

Pick up was terrible. We stood on the heat for 30 min. At the location ( not corporate) nobody picks up the phone. The seats in the care were stained.

The pick from the airport took a while. The car was dirty. Will most likely not rent from FOX again.
7.9 Good13 Jul 2021
The facility is not on airport grounds. You have to bring all your luggage past the regular car rentals, quite a distance. Then you either call for the shuttle or wait for one to show up. Then drive for a few minutes to the rental place, unload, enter, wait on line, THEN get your car. Too much schlepping for me and my 75 year old mother.

Dropped off the car. They filled it up cheaper than the gas stations around and I was back at the airport in 5 minutes. I like too easy once in a while

The price was better than most other vehicles of similar size but now I know why. Would never rent from them again.The woman who checked us in was nice enough but was on her cellphone underneath the desk while getting our rental car paperwork in order? Very unprofessional. When we got inside the car it smelled absolutely terrible. For sure someone before us smoked in it even though they tell you not to? We had to buy an air freshener just to drive in it. Then when we dropped off our vehicle, they told us to park it in a certain spot and leave the car running? Then the woman said we would get an email within 24 hours of returning it. Well its been almost 3 days and still haven't received anything. I've never rented a vehicle where you return it with no proof of return (receipt, email, etc)? Overall, very unprofessional and sub par vehicles. Wouldn't use Fox again! I'll pay a little more for more peace of mind.

Nothing. It was a terrible experience.The pickup was 12 noon on a Saturday and it closed at 12 noon and no one was there. The next day it opened was Monday. I tried calling the local phone numbers and they couldn't talk until Monday. I then tried to call the national support Hertz number and had to wait for about 40 mins on hold (probably because they are bankrupt and have no support staff) and then the guy tried to get me a car from another location but then disconnected. I then called back and waited on the phone for about 30 mins and then got the same guy on the phone (he may be the only guy working) and just cancelled the reservation. AWFUL!

When I booked through Kayak the search engine not only changed the dates but also the pick up location. Unfortunately I did not notice this until after payment was made and I showed up to pick up the car. It has been a nightmare since. The Hertz employees I encountered through out this fiasco were rude and unhelpful. I will never use Kayak to book anything ever again.

A disaster from the beginning...The car itself was nice and clean. Drop off was quick and easy.It took nearly 1.5 hours standing in line to get my rental - almost as long as it took to fly to FL! Then they said something was wrong with my rental agreement and they had me listed as returning the car to another airport! After that was corrected (for pickup/return to same location), they said the rate was wrong. After getting a manager to sort it out, they said something about an extra $50 due to the change, but the manager waived that. Drop off on return was easy and quick. When I returned home, I found a $700 charge on my credit card from Hertz IN ADDITION TO the original rental amount! They told me since I hadn't used the full 24 hours rental on return, they reverted it to an hourly rental for the final day at $38/hour!! After 2 hours on the phone with representatives, trying to get a clear explanation of this billing, it was finally reduced to $70. I will NEVER rent Hertz again. They blamed Kayak for they way reservations are made, my point to them was I paid for x number of days, returned the car earlier than anticipated, and should not be penalized, regardless of how the reservation was made. I unfortunatley left the original paperwork (rental agreement) in the car upon return, or I would have fought them even more over the $70.

I made arrangements for a rental online via expedia a while ago. 3 days before I left for my vacation trip to FL, Hertz rental office called me to confirm rental. It was from a pickup location that I did not make. I asked for the pick up location be changed to Ft. Myers Airport where I initially thought was where I was picking up rental car. Hertz rep could not make the change, referred me to the 800 number to make changes. I did that and was assured by the rep. that it was taken care of. I arrive at Ft. Myers Airport only to be told no it was not reserve nor could they do anything about it because I prepaid. Took a taxi (cost $ 10.00) to the Holiday Inn location that was on a my original reservation, only to be told the office was closed on Sundays!!! I had to rent a car from another close by car rental company. Needless to say, It was not a good start to my vacation. Very disappointed. Donna Maichle 302-420-6684 dlmaichle59@verizon.net

This place sucksHow do you rent a car to someone when you close at 5pm and your flight gets in at 5pm. Never got the car I want my money back. You sold me something that you knew you could not deliver on.

Friendly and helpful peoplethe car did not have a full tank of gas when I picked it up ....the customer service person said he would make an adjustment , but the power was out because of hurricane Irma. I also told the drop off person who said they would make an adjustment once the Internet service was restored. I hope they are correct.

Asked for a Camry and was put in a small Jeep suv that had very uncomfortable seating. Lower Back has hurt for a couple days. I should have pushed for the Camry I reserved. Note the Jeep SUV was not an upgrade in my opinion.

Car hire excess insurance in Estero

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 Estero 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 Estero.

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 Estero car rental.
