Pros:Car was great. Loved that I could plug in my phone to charge and play music.Cons:Line to check in was huge, and the person who helped me was a bit confusing. He also didn't warn me to avoid the toll road with the license plate scan, so now I'm going to get charged a ridiculously expensive surcharge.Reviewed 10 Nov 2017

Screwed me goodPros:Nothing at allCons:I booked a rental at the airport I was arriving at. I get there at 11pm go up to the rental counter and she has no record of me at all. The lady at the counter then does a system search and finds out you screwed me royally and my rental was booked at a Hertz in the same town as the airport and that location closed at 6pm. I was stranded at an airport that had no cell service an hour an a half from my destination. I ended up having to pay a taxi to drive me late at night all the way to where i was going. I lost so much money from booking a rental from Hertz, never again will I use HertzReviewed 1 Jan 2017

PoorPros:The carCons:I booked a car a week before I left Pittsburgh at a very good price ($186. and change). Unfortunately, the day we left, Pittsburgh had a snowstorm (the first for the Pittsburgh 2016-17 winter in FEBRUARY). Our plane was 1.5 hours delayed due to Pittsburgh deicing the plane. In the meantime unknown to me (because I am either sitting on the plane as it deices or in flight) Hertz called my home wondering where I was. My daughter told Alisha (Hertz sales associate) we were delayed BUT were on our way. My daughter told Hertz we had no way to communicate due to being in the air and having our phones on airplane mode as directed by the airlines BUT we were on our way! Once I was off the plane, I received a txt from my daughter letting me know to pick up the car by 6 before closing. We arrived at 5 (4 hours late) expecting our car. We were told by Alisha the car was rented and that we now would have to pay $100.00+ extra for a car. It was truly like a Seinfeld episode! We asked to speak to the manager, which we did by phone. He was not willing to honor the contract until we asked to speak to his boss. At that point, he agreed. It will be a long time before we book with Hertz again. That Destin, FL franchise was not willing to work with us at all and it felt more like a bait and switch. There are many good car rental companies that are around the Destin area. It is sad that Hertz's integrity and reputation was tarnished by one poorly run AND UNFRIENDLY franchise.Reviewed 17 Feb 2017

Cons:The expense. To rent an economy car for less than 24 hours for 180.00 is expensive.Reviewed 19 Jun 2016

Cons:I had a bad experience with Hertz. All I asked is that I got a new clean car. They gave me a car that was dirty and smelled like smoke. I had to go back to the counter that was not close with two suitcases and wait in line again. All to be given a car with stains all over seat and dirty. It also had a msg that said needs air in the tires. I got on the highway and the service light came on. They never apologized once. They never asked if there were any significant dents or scratches!!! I would not recommend using Hertz at the Ft. Walton Airport!!!Reviewed 18 Jan 2017

Cons:The car the bottom of the class for a vehicle. This is not what I have recieved from other car rental companies that I have rented from. There was no one there to review the car for damage. Just a woman at the desk who sent us on our way. The defrost was slow to start and we were in a humid climate, so had to wait to leave in the morning and evenings.Reviewed 30 Mar 2017

Incompetent, painfully un-motivated employeesPros:NothingCons:Taking nearly an hour to simply rent a car. I have multiple charges on my credit card that aren't accounted for. I've spent hours dealing with horrible customer service agents on the phone and have gotten nowhere. I will never recommend these services to anyone and will continue to spread the word on how disgusted I am with there lack of professionalism.Reviewed 10 Oct 2016
