Never rent from Hertz again !!!!Pros:NOTHINGCons:We went to Estero where they have a sales office for their cars and the rental office is in the same building. I walked in at 1:05 and was told that the rental office closed at 1 pm. No one ever informed of this closing time. I could not pick the car up UNTIL AFTER 12:00 noon. So that means if you wait in the parking lot until NOON you may get a car. This was a non refundable reservation paid in FULL in advance. This is the 2nd time we rented from Hertz. The other rental was in Cancun Mexico. Which I won't get into details. But it was a 1,400.00 rental that was over charged double. Did I mention at this same office in Estero we had bought 2 of their cars. I WILL NOT RENT OR BUY ANOTHER CAR FROM HERTZ EVEN IF IT IS FREE !!!!!Reviewed 22 Aug 2017

COCKROACHESCons:Our car was infested with cockroaches. Which we didn't realize until night time and then it was too late to return the car that evening and ruined 1 of the 3 nights I was spending in Florida. Hertz made me fill the roach infested car up with $7 in gas before I returned it and offered me no discount or apology. They exchanged the car, luckily for a none cockroach infected one. But I will never get the image of all of those tiny bugs crawling around out of my head. It was awful. literally the worst car rental experience of my life.Reviewed 5 Feb 2018

Terrible service at the Hertz drop offPros:The pick up was fine, although I found it odd the rental agency was at a Holiday Inn. I can see this would work much smoother if not at a hotel. Two workers on staff at pick up and it was fine.Cons:When I dropped the car off, there were two parties in front of me to rent cars. There was only ONE Hertz guy and he was nowhere to be found. The hotel staff where the rental agency was had to call him on his cell phone. He then arrived and it took him forever to help the first person. He left in the parking lot somewhere and none of us knew where he went. Like 20 minutes or something went by and I was irate. Got on the phone with Hertz to see if I can just drive to the airport to drop it off. Finally the Holiday Inn worker said I can turn the keys into the front desk. Felt bad for the second people waiting to rent the car as they weren't even staying at the hotel and had to wait over an hour in the lobby just for this one "slow as molasses" worker. Terrible and due to this, I wouldn't rent from this agency again.Reviewed 28 Mar 2018

Cons:When I booked through Kayak the search engine not only changed the dates but also the pick up location. Unfortunately I did not notice this until after payment was made and I showed up to pick up the car. It has been a nightmare since. The Hertz employees I encountered through out this fiasco were rude and unhelpful. I will never use Kayak to book anything ever again.Reviewed 28 Mar 2021

A disaster from the beginning...Pros:The car itself was nice and clean. Drop off was quick and easy.Cons:It took nearly 1.5 hours standing in line to get my rental - almost as long as it took to fly to FL! Then they said something was wrong with my rental agreement and they had me listed as returning the car to another airport! After that was corrected (for pickup/return to same location), they said the rate was wrong. After getting a manager to sort it out, they said something about an extra $50 due to the change, but the manager waived that. Drop off on return was easy and quick. When I returned home, I found a $700 charge on my credit card from Hertz IN ADDITION TO the original rental amount! They told me since I hadn't used the full 24 hours rental on return, they reverted it to an hourly rental for the final day at $38/hour!! After 2 hours on the phone with representatives, trying to get a clear explanation of this billing, it was finally reduced to $70. I will NEVER rent Hertz again. They blamed Kayak for they way reservations are made, my point to them was I paid for x number of days, returned the car earlier than anticipated, and should not be penalized, regardless of how the reservation was made. I unfortunatley left the original paperwork (rental agreement) in the car upon return, or I would have fought them even more over the $70.Reviewed 30 Dec 2018

Pros:Nothing. It was a terrible experience.Cons:The pickup was 12 noon on a Saturday and it closed at 12 noon and no one was there. The next day it opened was Monday. I tried calling the local phone numbers and they couldn't talk until Monday. I then tried to call the national support Hertz number and had to wait for about 40 mins on hold (probably because they are bankrupt and have no support staff) and then the guy tried to get me a car from another location but then disconnected. I then called back and waited on the phone for about 30 mins and then got the same guy on the phone (he may be the only guy working) and just cancelled the reservation. AWFUL!Reviewed 19 Apr 2021

Hertz I rented from was off-site of the Ft. Myers airportPros:Good value. You can get along without a car in Ft. Myers Beach, but the rate I had for 5 days was about the cost of an Uber to and from the airport. Plus we were able to do some sightseeing. Easy drop off at Ft. Myers airport, no hassle. Also, check with your personal auto insurance before deciding whether you need the rental insurance.Cons:When I booked through Kayak, I didn't realize I was booking at an off airport location. The nice Hertz agent at the airport location honored the rate. But I was charged the airport tax of 10% which I did not object to. I wish that Kayak or Hertz had made it clearer when I booked it on-lineReviewed 9 Apr 2018

Cons:I made arrangements for a rental online via expedia a while ago. 3 days before I left for my vacation trip to FL, Hertz rental office called me to confirm rental. It was from a pickup location that I did not make. I asked for the pick up location be changed to Ft. Myers Airport where I initially thought was where I was picking up rental car. Hertz rep could not make the change, referred me to the 800 number to make changes. I did that and was assured by the rep. that it was taken care of. I arrive at Ft. Myers Airport only to be told no it was not reserve nor could they do anything about it because I prepaid. Took a taxi (cost $ 10.00) to the Holiday Inn location that was on a my original reservation, only to be told the office was closed on Sundays!!! I had to rent a car from another close by car rental company. Needless to say, It was not a good start to my vacation. Very disappointed.
