The slowest pickup experience ever.Pros:The price was reasonable.Cons:I never give poor ratings; however, if the employees had been any slower at pickup, they would have been going in reverse. It took over 38 minutes to finally get the car with only one customer ahead of me. Upon finally getting the car, I wasn't even given a copy of the rental agreement, but was already running so late, I didn't want to ask how much longer that would take. I have always had great experiences with Hertz, but after going to this Hertz, I will make sure to never go that one again.Reviewed 21 Mar 2017

Worst customer service ever!Cons:I'm about to go on a long rant about Hertz Rent A Car. Hertz I booked a rental car through KAYAK for my trip to Boca Raton because I didn't want to put miles on my sports car. I specifically put my return time for 7pm on Friday the 23rd because I knew I would not be back from Bradenton to return the car until at least 6pm. Apparently my rental location closes at 5pm, which I was not aware of until I tried to return the car. That wasn't even the worst of my experience though.The rental car that they gave me was a Hyundai Accent, which was an upgrade from the economy that I originally booked. The car, however, was not in the best of shape. (Scrapes and dings, waterstains on both fron seats etc). I should have refused that car, but I didn't. It was all noted on the inspection, so I wasn't worried. When I got to Boca Raton, the tire pressure light came on. I contacted Hertz to see if they would swap out the car for me. I stated that I was going to be traveling half the state alone and didn't want a break down, being a single female. The gentleman on the phone told me that I had to treat the car as I would my own and get it checked out at a tire place. That he couldn't even swap it out because he didn't have a car he could swap it out for. So I took the car to the local Tires Plus, where the kind gentleman there checked my tires. He looked alarmed and proceeded to ask me who filled up my tires. I told him that it was a rental, so I was assuming that Hertz did. He said that my front left tire was supposed to have a PSI of 33 and it was currently at 73. That the car was dangerous to drive. He deflated the tire to the correct psi and sent me on my way. I drove back to Clearwater without incident. I tried to return the rental but the location was closed. I contacted Hertz Corporate to see what I could do. The lady on the phone said that I could return the car to an alternate location, but that I would have to pay a different location fee. She said that it it would just be cheaper to keep the car than to return it to Tampa Airport location and pay the fee and not have a ride back. Frustrated, I called the other Hertz Car Rental St Petersburg Clearwater Airport as that was actually close to me too and had extended hours. The girl that answered the phone there told me to have someone, maybe a family member drop off the car for me, since I could not get there during the 3 hour window that they were open on Saturdays. I said that I didn't want to have to pay to add on an authorized driver. She then stated, "Oh yeah. it would just be cheaper to keep the car another day." So Sunday morning, I looked up the hours of the Hertz I rented originally at and it stated 12-5. I made it there at 12;30, before any other additional days on the rental agreement and was told by the Hertz sales people that the rental counter was closed on Sundays. They then offered to take the keys, but could not give me a ride back to my house, which is 2 miles away.Reviewed 30 Jun 2017

Pros:NothingCons:We had rented an intermediate SUV however when we arrived they said they only had compact or large SUVs so they told us that we had secured a compact SUV. To avoid the hassle of cancelling the insurance pre-purchased we paid more to get a larger car as they would not provide the larger SUV to us in the agreed upon price. It felt like a bait and switch. The customer service was horrible and the car that we rented was dirty. There were wrappers, kids bracelets in cup holders, and in the seat back pockets. There was dirt and sand everywhere in the back and in the trunk. To top it all off the car smelled like smoke that had been covered up-not ideal for an asthmatic. I had to use my inhaler within 15 minutes of being in the car! It was a terrible experience!Reviewed 13 Sep 2020

Great experiencePros:While planning our trip to Florida, we went online to search for a passenger van to rent. Our best deal was a Hertz rental through ca.kayak.com and we weren’t disappointed. The vehicle was a newer model with lots of options, spotless and the perfect size for family adventures. The rental agency employees in Florida were friendly and provided great service. Used our own insurance company from home without issue. Our contract was exactly as expected without any hitches, surprises or additional fees. Hertz will definitely be our choice next time we travel!Reviewed 22 Mar 2018

Great service!Pros:It is the middle of spring break and baseball spring training and I needed a car rental quickly and hopefully, not too expensive. The Hertz rental was available - along with a free upgrade! The service was excellent and so was the price. Definitely would rent from them again!Reviewed 21 Mar 2017

Pros:Certainly a good value considering that I was upgraded to the next larger size car.Cons:Picking up and returning the car was a hassle!. On picking up, there was only one person that checked me in, then went and washed the vehicle herself before the walk-around and turnover of the car to me. Had to wait a long while before she got to me because of people ahead of me. Likewise on returning the car, many people waiting for a car meant service was extremely slow.Reviewed 15 Mar 2017
