Car was ready for pick up in State College and drop off was easy in KentuckyThe mileage must have been logged incorrectly at the pick up location because at drop off, it said we had driven over 5,000 miles! Good think we got unlimited miles with the rental!

NothingI went all the way to the airport so they tell me ‘we are out of cars come back tomorrow, and when i asked what will guarantee that i will find one tomorrow he replies “because am telling you” such an unprofessional treatment.

NothingWe made a reservation weeks in advance. 3 days prior to our trip I called the location to be sure all was well. The recorded message said hours were till 11PM. When we arrived at about 5:10PM, the desk was empty. Location closed. Called the customer service (JOKE) number. Out of luck. No customer service at Enterprise! Lesson learned.

Car had no registration sticker and an expired inspection. I was pulled over 45 minutes into the trip because of it. When I handed the officer my rental agreement from the passenger seat, I realized it was the former renter’s agreement, not mine. This means they either did not clean the car at all or did a very poor job of it. The officer let me go once they saw it was a rental, but Payless refused to refund any part of my booking for the unclean vehicle, poor customer service, or the non-inspected car.
10.0 Excellent8 Dec 2020
very much appreciated the young lady who helped me get acquainted with the vehicle.the drop off lot was at the other end of the terminal, which made walking with bags and a mask on, a little tiring. maybe the drop off lot could be closer to the rental office?

When you get the gas option where they fill up the car, you are required to pay for a full take, even though you only use half or less. A rip off.

There was something wrong with car. I think the transmission was going bad; every time I stopped in traffic and then accelerated again, the car would lurch forward. I was just happy it didn't break down completely.

Even though Hertz could not fulfill my reservation, they did not erroneously charge me for it.I was able to make a reservation to pick up a car at the State College Hertz, but when I showed up, the place was closed and I was instructed to pick up my car at the airport. I called the airport Hertz to confirm this, but no one answered the phone. When I arrived at the Hertz at the airport, there were no cars available, despite being able to reserve one.

The car was not ready when we showed up, and the car was a smaller size than what we reserved. It was a one-way rental, and I was told at my destination that they had never seen a contract like the one I had been issued. It took 24 hours to resolve it.
