10.0 Excellent19 Aug 2017
Pros: Price was lower than quoted. I had a small accident with two small dents and they were very reasonable.
5.2 Okay14 Aug 2017
Hertz needs a better workflowPros: The car was fine. The staff is very reasonable and friendly given the challenge at the Lihue-Kauai location.Cons: The shuttle buses are too small to accommodate the demand after a flight arrives, so you may have to wait several shuttles to get onboard and to the rental car location. Once there, the line is slow--- not uncommon for rental agencies, but one would think they could figure this out. Most damning, After waiting in line for the rental car and getting the paperwork finalized, we had to wait another half hour for the car to be ready. They said it was being cleaned. We waited with another 40 people. There has got to be a better way to run this location. There's either a management problem or a shortage of employees.
2.0 Mediocre13 Aug 2017
Terrible rental in Kauai-avoid Hertz!Pros: The car was fine but the experience of picking it up in Kauai was so miserable I don't think I would ever use Hertz again. We were told there were no cars when we arrived at the lot. A smug agent informed people that the agreement was for a car sometime that day and not at any particular time. What a way to start your vacation in paradise. It took a long time before they even would predict when a car might be available. Then I was told a car was on the lot but I would need to wait for it to be cleaned. Inconsiderate and incompetent service. A large group of really unhappy customers basically begging to take any car they could find. No apologies.Cons: See above.
3.6 Mediocre13 Aug 2017
Waited 90 minutes for car that was not even ready!Pros: The Dodge Journey had decent air conditioning; really can't think of othe positives.Cons: In Lihue, I waited over 90 minutes in line at Hertz and then when they told me what vehicle I had, I eventually found it in a long line waiting to be cleaned. Our family was very hungry so we were able to convince them to let us take the car dirty.

Way better than ThriftyPros: No hard sell to upgrade like I've gotten from Thrifty at Lihue airport. Easy pick up and drop offCons: Car had a few dings but I've learned to take a complete photo/ video survey of my Rental cars ever since renting from Advantage rental in Orlando. Never had problem with Hertz

10.0 Excellent3 Jun 2021
Pros: Great customer service and was upgraded to a larger vehicle, which ended up saving our trip as the rest of our party booked with Avis who ran out of vehicles and couldn't honor their reservation. With the upgrade we were able to fit everyone in one vehicle!Cons: The pickup line was extremely long, so could have had more employees available. Everyone was nice and helpful though!
6.0 Good21 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff was wonderful. Car was clean and ready for pick up.Cons: Location is NOT at airport - there is NO shuttle. Uber / Lyft are NOT readily available. Must rely on taxi, which is hit or miss from the airport. I had to walk the 1.8 miles from the airport to get to Enterprise before it closed.

Double price when cruise ship arrives.Pros: Car was clean and nice full of fuel and ready to go. Process was fast and easy. Service and car were great, no complaints.Cons: When I priced out the same car the day before it was half as much. My fault for not reserving it then I guess. I just don’t like price gouging. Even under the guise of supply and demand.
4.8 Okay1 Apr 2018
I do not recommend Avis in LihuePros: Car was very comfortable and had no issues with operations.Cons: Pick up and drop off was chaotic, customer service was very poor. Picking up the car took an hour because of long lines and slow service. It was clear they were backed up and did not have enough vehicles clean and ready to rent. Drop off was also poor, the return area was poorly marked and the attendant did nohad promptly acknowledge us or assist in directing us for our return.

6.0 Good8 Feb 2020
Pros: Car was comfortable - outwardly seemed clean - staff was niceCons: Car smelled like cat pee almost from the time we drove out. The operation was very small and not what we expected from a front line car rental company - obviously contracted out. Not much inventory to pick from and I felt the professionalism was lacking - would never rent from them again. Gave us an uneasy feeling in regards to the paperwork we were given in the onset.
3.6 Mediocre2 Feb 2020
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: Our car had major issues. It was 13 years old with 100,00 miles on it. Windshield wipers didn't work, it started to overheat while we were sightseeing, the whole car would shake violently when you braked and the transmission was slipping gears when accelerating from a stop. It was like a bad joke.
4.0 Okay8 Jul 2019
Pros: Car AC didn’t work, windows would shut, engine check lights on. Staff told us tough luck.Cons: Better car or rate reduction for crappy car
8.4 Excellent24 Mar 2019
Pros: The staff was great. It was a super quick process.Cons: The car was a little older. A newer one would have been nice. But it was still clean and very reliable.
10.0 Excellent13 Oct 2018
5 star servicePros: We were picked up by our friendly driver who was happy to answer any touristy question. On our way to the rental company, he called the guy in the office to get our car ready. The process was very speedy.Cons: We did not get the type of car we ordered but nevertheless were happy with the rental company overall.
9.6 Excellent23 Jun 2018
Worked Out WellPros: The pickup and drop off were so easy. Everyone was lovely The car worked well and was clean. All good.Cons: The price. But i think it was actually reasonable given the prices in Kauai and probably better than most.

It did save us money...Pros: ...but was it worth it. The van only had basic features. No A/C in back, no automatic rear doors, minimal driver controls. Battery on key fob went out. Very nice people working there.
4.0 Okay15 Oct 2016
Stay awayPros: The people were friendly and helpfulCons: We rented a minivan from this place. It was the lowest line of the minivan and old. I was surprised it had automatic windows. No air conditioning in the back. We hoped to save some money, thinking all rental agencies were the same. We were wrong. We ended up spending more money on an inferior product cuz they charged us to have an extra driver, where most places will allow you to include your spouse. The car was falling apart. the lining inside was coming down and one of the interior lights kept falling down too. Halfway thru the trip (we were there for a week), the unlock button on the remote stopped working. Luckily the key fob was new enough to have an actual key in the remote fob. So, we had to unlock the door manually everytime from that point on. Overall, it was a mediocre experience. I wouldn't use this company again.

Pros: Nothing! Will never use Dollar Rental again!Cons: I booked our car 3 months ahead of our trip. Called 2 weeks prior to our trip to confirm we did have a car and they confirmed we did have a car. The day before our trip, they called and said they were closed on the weekends so we would not have a car! They also said they were calling "as a courtesy" and were not required to call us!!!!!! That left us stranded. Found out they changed their hours a week prior to our trip but they never bothered to call us until the day before. And then to have the audacity to tell us they were calling as a "courtesy"!

Cons: I don't like being charged an extra $13 per day to add my spouse as a second authorized driver. That doesn't seem fair. The company is not assuming any additional liability - why are they charging me anything?
