Great Staff!!

staff were friendly and prompt. nice car and convenient locationI searched for SUV on Kayak and found a good rate on SUV for the dates I needed. I got to location and was informed that "their" rate was for a standard car, not SUV, and the only "standard" car they had was tiny. They gave me a discount on a very nice SUV. More $ than I planned, but nice car

Excellent experience!I arrived timely, and only needed to wait minutes for my car. The car was clean, comfortable, and the when the person helping me offered the gas at a below market rate, I took it. I arrived before the stated opening time the next a.m. and they were already open and assisting other. Quick & immediate lift to the train station as previously requested. Would definitely recommend them!

Drop off was really annoying. involved parking garage with unclear instructions and inability to drop off after hours.
2.0 Mediocre11 May 2021
After booking a week in advance, Budget called me less than an hour before pickup to inform me they didn’t have a car for me, and likely wouldn’t. No offers to help find something else, just sorry and good luck.

If they had a car for me it would have made my trip a lot easier. Budget call the night before and said they would not have a car for me and it was too late to try to get a car from a more reliable source. Never Again

Friendly staff. Nice clean car. Quick checkout and dropoff.Kind of pricey for the location/car category. Could be because of summer..

Budget overbooks, car was not available.

I loved that I was able to make a last-minute booking on Labor Day. The car was comfortable and clean and handled great.It was difficult to get someone to answer the phone even during business hours. I was trying to confirm for several days that the location would be open on the holiday. Also $48 a day is a bit steeper than I am used to.

The reservation shouldn’t have gone through because the pick up time I requested was when the office closed. So I paid for an extra day without using the car at all.Making it clear that the office closed at 7pm

Nothing.Employees constantly leave prior to scheduled closing time. I was unable to get my rental car because even though I arrived prior to their stated closing time, the employees had already left for the day.

Crowded and very slow at pickup. Inexperienced staff on duty. Waited in wrong line because Hertz desk wasn't readily obvious.Drip off was smoother. Different CSR.

Horrible. Horrible. Hertz went back and forth about the rental all day, didn't rent the car in the end. What a nightmare.

"You have already driven the car. How can I give you a refund?"The air bag was not functioning in the car that I rented. (The air bag light was glowing and, according to the manual, this means the air bag was not functioning.) When I called Hertz (having already driven a few miles), I was told I must rent a different car at a location 44 miles away (through Philadelphia traffic), since the 1st location was about to close. Two hours later as I drove the 2nd car away from the 2nd location, I realized the air bag light was on in THIS car too. This was actually a good thing, because when I returned I realized that the Hertz employee had not actually given me the key -- he had merely turned the ignition on. Since my wife and I had to drive home (44 miles again) in order to return my own car before beginning our trip, about 3 and a half hours passed between when we were supposed to leave on our trip and when we were actually able to leave. We had wanted to get a few hours of driving in that evening, since we had 700 miles to travel and didn't want to do it all in one day. But by now it was 9:00, we were exhausted, and we decided to wait until the next morning before starting our trip. This meant that -- rather than having time to visit with my family the next evening -- we spent the entire day driving and arrived at our destination late in the evening. When I had asked the man at the rental office for a discount, he told me I should call Customer Service. When I called Customer Service today and explained everything, they told me they could not give me a refund or even a discount because the car had been "prepaid." "You have already driven the car," the woman told me. "How can I give you a refund?"

The representatives were friendly helpful and hard working. The customer service person in India was hard to understand on the phone and gave wrong directions. Our vehicle was very nice. Seems like they don’t have the cars available for you as customers arrive to pick up. That does not seem right.

Had to sit here for 41/2 hours as they ran my card three times for the same purchase and would not give me a car. Finally gave me up he car and had to switch it out twice; both had bad tires. Horrible experience! Took me 10 day to get the 3000.00 back on my card.
