Don't use Car Rental . comNothingI made a mistake on the reservation and called immediately, so Hertz cancelled, but Car Rental .com said they will still charge me. My daughter resubmitted for a rental (before I knew they would still charge me), then she went to pickup the car and there wasn't one reserved, so then they brought her one out that had candy stuck to the seats and smelled of smoke. She told the attendant, and he sprayed it with Fabreeze and considered this fixed. She cancelled the reservation. I will not go through a site for reservations again, only straight to National or Enterprise.

Lost in the stormThe car was great for the price and drove over 1900 miles without a glitch.The staff in the pick up location was too busy talking and joking around to notice me, their computers crashed, my agent took another customer while helping me, they made me call my credit card company to get an authorization code or they would charge me twice and when I returned the car there was no record of me renting a car in their system.

Gas mileage was good. People were friendly.Car was very dirty, smelled of cigarettes. Key fob died part way through rental (keyless start car, too). Did manage to get it working again, but customer service was not terribly helpful.

Dirty car, poor serviceThe only I thing I liked was the vehicle. It was a big vehicle and it was comfortable for the journey we took.We made a reservation for the vehicle and when the day got here to pick it up, it wasn't even ready. It only had a quarter of gas. Really dirty from the inside and outside. The guy told me that he was going to wash it and vacuum it. They took it to get washed and vacuumed but they did such a horrible job. Those people got a wash cloth and a bottle of spray and that was washing the car for them. Just horrible.

Rudest customer service I’ve ever had, and I was also over charged for the car.
9.2 Excellent7 Oct 2020
Picking up and dropping off was easy.The security deposit. Was told the amount went up to $250. That was perfectly fine. But not when you’re charged $250 on top of the rental price when you already prepaid the car.

I did the reservation online, I drove to this location and they refused to rent me a car because the drop off was in a different location, I'm renting cars every month in Enterprise, never had any problems but this company is a total joke !!

Nothing.You shouldn’t need to have a debt score in order to drive a rental. We don’t have credit cards and pay everything cash. Worst policy. We will never rent from this company, nor refer anyone to them.

Two Hours to pick up a car with a reservation!The staff were nice and the car I rented was nice as well.It took over an hour to get help when there were two agents and 3 customers. They did not have the car size reserved, so I either had to pay for a more expensive car or wait hours until someone returned a car my size. So I accepted the higher rate for a larger car, yet the car took over another hour to be ready.
5.6 Okay11 Jul 2018
Convenient locationIt was near where I was staying so it was easy to get to.There was only one person working and there were a lot of customers waiting for a while. Also my rental car reeked of cigarette smoke but I didn't want to have to wait another 30 minutes to try to get a different vehicle so i just went with it.

Really hard working employeeOur car was not there when we arrived at 9 a.m. . It appears that had been a mix-up and all the cars are rented out the night before. The woman that was working behind the desk was very helpful at getting a car there as soon as possible. There was no one there to clean the car, so she went out and clean the car herself.

Really just could not cateI got carTheir customer service is horrible. They have this chill attitude and it shows they don't care. They charged me extra insurance when I already had it and didn't take it off saying it was already done. Coming home from Davis, ca to the antelope valley (5 hour trip) the low tire pressure light came on, had to find a gas staton that had a working air machine and when I did, the car was telling me the wrong tire was low on preassure. This made me over inflate a tire so I had to take air out of that tire then figure out which tire had low air. All in all it was an hour out of my trip. When I told the service agent of this his only reply was "oh that sucked." You gave me a vehicle that had low tire pressure and gave me wrong information and all I get is a oh that sucked? Horrible service, don't rent from here.

Terrible do not rent here----Nothing all terribleNo cars, the car that was rented to me was dirty smelled like wet dog and cigarettes and dog hair everywhere. Car wash not washed from interior also manager talks like a thug no language skills at all. I don't him you have another car he said s*** that's all we have. I will never ever rent from this location again. I rented at 5:30 pm and took it back at opening didn't even drive it 5 miles and still was charged also needed brakes. They have nothing but cheap old car buckets here. Go to enterprise better across the street in the auto center that's where I went and was excellent.

Car hire excess insurance in Lancaster

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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster.

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 Lancaster car rental.
