We did not pick up vehicle. It was cancelled and I did get a confirmation that I cancelled it and now am still waiting for a refund. Frusterated to find out who I need to talk to about this refund. My email is mancinimf@hotmail.com please let me know whom I need to talk to.

The process of purchasing through Kayak was simple and convenient. However the service and response from the Hertz "partner" was the complete opposite. I had to cancel the second week of my reservation because of an illness (that turned into the eventual passing of a family member). Hertz was non-responsive to my request for a refund and was even less helpful when I finally submitted supporting documentation at their request. I changed my request for a refund to a credit when I return there in a few months, and my request seemed to vaporize! Deeply disappointed with the Hertz response and will not return to such a heartless organization. To the contrary, my dealings with VRBO over cancelled accommodations (which involved much more significant dollars) cold not have been more empathetic or convenient. Shame on Hertz and way to go VRBO!

Pros:

Staff at the counter was very friendly and helpful, they just didn’t have very many people working so the line moved a bit slowly.

Cons:

Vehicle had no upgrades whatsoever (no moonroof, no push to start).

Cons:

The reservation agent charged me two extra hours (almost a full day's rate, three hours would have been a full day's rate). I was unaware I was a little more than an hour early, I had made the reservation a month and a half ago. When I noticed the total amount was more than what was on my reservation paperwork I was told it was because I was early. When I said I could go have lunch and come back in an hour the agent replied she's already opened the reservation and couldn't change it now. She said she could only cancel the reservation and that I'd be free to make a new one. This was during the covid car shortage and they were turning away people due to the shortage of cars and the cars that were available were renting at a premium. I know canceling a reservation is not the only option unless it is a new company top down policy.

Pros:

Staff were fine, drop off easy

Cons:

We did not get the car we asked for--the alternative was too small for our needs. And, I felt ripped off by all the extra fees, etc. Based on the "advertised" Kayak price, we should have paid much less buying making an advance deposit. The fees drove up the total significantly. Net, most likely will not use a third party again for car rental.

They didn’t have the type of car we reserved (suv) and gave us a 4 door chevy. It fit us fine but wasn’t the size we’d reserved. Also, the car had a big dent and scratch along the back side which looked a little crappy driving it around Palm Springs.

Pros:

The staff are excellent. I used the current tense as I am still renting and now on my 4th vehicle with the current lease to expire May 5th.

Cons:

I have no issue with having to exchange the rental on the renewal date each month. What was extremely annoying was the email that I received on the first occasion. The wording was offensive and made me feel that there was an issue with me as a customer. For instance,, there was no explanation as to why the car had to be returned and the wording was "we are not extending your lease and the car must be returned to the nearest Budget airport office as soon as possible."

Staff was fine. I thought I had booked a car at the airport as that is what i was looking for but I found it was 2 miles from the airport and I needed to get a cab to get to the airport since I was dropping the car at 4:30 AM or pay a $50 drop off fee. Ridiculous!!!!

Cons:

Make it clear that this is not the in-airport location.

Cons:

There were 15 people in line. It took an hour to get to the front. Kayak did not communicate that there are 2 enterprise car rental businesses. I was in line for an hour at the wrong one. The one I was booked to be at was closed (at 12 noon ?) the kind wonan working frantically tried her best to get me a car. The car she gave me was a ‘hot boxed’ camero - smelled like someone just got done getting high. The oil light came on when my 83 year old mom had finally gotten herself into the low riding car. We got out and the nice man who was working helped me and got me a gladiator. The people were great! The process sucked. Thanks for listening.

Car rental insurance in Palm Springs

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Palm Springs car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Palm Springs.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental 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 Palm Springs car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Palm Springs

  • You’ll want a hire car while staying in the Palm Springs resort community so that you can take advantage of its award winning golf courses, art galleries, and chic boutiques. With a hire car you can also drive through the desert to Joshua Tree National Park, the Living Desert, or one of its other forests or botanical gardens.
  • Palm Springs International Airport is small, relaxed, and hassle free. Despite its size, many major carriers fly out of this airport. It also offers most of the amenities of any large airport including on-site car hire agencies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and more. Once you are off the plane, simply go to baggage claim, and retrieve your belongings, and the car hire company is right there.
  • When driving through the desert, make sure to have plenty of petrol since you don’t know how close the next station will be. Additionally, because of heat you should have plenty of drinking water with you in case of car trouble. If it rains when you are driving through the city, be on the alert for street and parking lot floods.
  • Note that in the winter the population increases considerably, resulting in more traffic. Traffic is thickest in Palm Springs between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. Commuters returning home from work can also cause traffic backups between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Some of the heaviest traffic is on Hwy 91 and State Route 111.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Palm Springs for £51 or less
  • Book your car hire in Palm Springs at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Palm Springs are around 16% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Premium car hires in Palm Springs are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average
