I paid for the booking in advance, and still ended up having to pay $183 USD after the fact. Some of this was prepaid for gas, but that would only come to about $80. So, overall I was not impressed with Hertz.
6.0 Good24 May 2022
The airport had one line for Dollar and one for Hertz. The agents were helping people from both lines. There was a long line for Dollar customers and not for Hertz. Those in the dollar line kept stepping in front of me in the Hertz line to be waited on.

I think it’s weird that the insurance is through a completely separate company. Hertz asked if I wanted insurance, I said I had paid for it already but it wasn’t on their file. I understand why they didn’t see it, but I think it’s weird. I was second guessing whether I was covered or not / if I did it correctly. It would have been nice if Hertz had know I bought third party insurance I would have felt better (if it was on their file).

Where's Sanford? Don't know about Sanford, but I can tell you about Orlando. I remember a story about a family on vacation, And they stopped for gas. They all went inside to use the restroom. They all came out, got back in, and went on their merry way. After about 10 minutes, the mother noticed her 5 year old was eating a cookie. As she couldn't recall buying cookies, she asked little Buford where he got the cookie. He replied " on the floor in the bathroom."

I rented a mustang(or equivalent) from Sanford to take to Daytona. I thought it would be fun for me and my teenage girls for a day and drive to New Smyrna for the day and then drive A1A. We got Kia and told no sports car available…sorry. The Kia smelled like cigarette smoke. I CC was charged an additional $200 that I didn’t know about. I called customer service. Sat on phone for some time. Betsy(nice enough, but difficult to understand) told me the $200 was a deposit and would be removed, fine( was not told this when car was picked up) she told me 10% could be taken off bill. I said, “unacceptable, I specifically got a sports car for a day, when I HADt transportation to get me from the airport to Daytona. This was the ONLY reason why I got the rental was for the sports car. For the experience with the girls! And now I have a regular car that smells like cigarette smoke. Now I swore she said she would take 50% off( but it definitely wasn’t 10% at this point ) and A voucher for three days of a rental car that she would send to my email for further use. I said this would be fine. I couldn’t get into my email at the time due to internet. The vouchers are for one way, which when coming to Daytona I always would need two way AND the vouchers are not even for the kind of car that I tried to rent in the first place! I at least deserve this! And the best part is that my invoice bill was $130.15. I drop off the car and my final bill is $130.15. I said to the lady, “ um, there was supposed to be a discount on my bill.” She states, there was 10% discount added. Well that would have made my bill $117.50 then since my initial total was $130.15. What else was added?!? I filled it with gas, nothing else should have been charged! AND she stated she was taking 50% off my bill! I am so exhausted, angry and disheartened by this whole experience. I feel completely snowballed. I’m just disgusted. Lisa Prien

Rented a 15 passenger van, it was 3.5 hrs late from when we asked to have it available to use. It had the back seat removed so we could only fit 12 people in it with seat belts and that was not communicated. It also had a wheel bearing that I could hear was going out and caused us to stay close to where we were staying and not go to far from our home base for our vacation.

8.0 Excellent16 Mar 2022
Good: Sanford airport is so small. I walked right up to the counter for our 7pm reservation to pick up. Drop off was equally efficient. Bad: The woman who helped me to get our car rental was very pushy about add-ons. Specifically, the 11.99/day unlimited tolls. I researched ahead of time, and knew I could take a route to Disney without hitting any tolls. She pressed after I explained that, stating that it was impossible to get out of the airport without paying a toll. The way she was being so pushy, and my unfamiliarity with the area made me think twice, but in the end I declined. I paid no tolls for the duration of our trip, using my pre-planned routes.

Drop off convenience was easy and capably taken care of by "Kaila."But wish we had known up front what to do, where to go, how to drop off. Driving around the airport we could see Enterprise signs but not any directions once we got into the parking lot! It was a relief when Kaila walked up to the car and said she would check us in! We had been looking for an office inside.

Great service at pickup. Hard to read Avis signs in the dark at the airport in Naples.
6.0 Good8 Mar 2022
Cannot believe how long it took to rent and return. Avis is still using dot matrix printers? I could hard,y read the contract. After entering information into the website, I still had to wait while they re-examined my credit card and drivers license. Then pickup location could not find the car....personnel had to got out and push the emergency button to locate car. Drop off was located inside the rear entrance to a mall...my gps could not find this location. Very difficult and not too customer friendly. Again, had to wait at return counter for “paperwork” to be processed. As opposed to Enterprise, Avis is in the dark ages. Are they still “trying harder.” Rental car companies need to use Enterprise as the standard to meet. Al Veeck

The procedure for returning the car was very challenging -- the airport signage was unclear, and I had to park it in a spot that was labelled for another company (but not just any company).
2.0 Mediocre8 Jul 2021
It was honestly like jumping through hoops in a circus during the check in process. They wouldn’t accept my credit card. Yes… credit card. Not debit card. And being out of town fresh off a plane with a large group, it was frustrating. I will never use a major car rental company again. I will use Turo because the service I received was much much better and it didn’t matter what payment method you used.
2.0 Mediocre3 Jul 2021
Check out was easy and fast.I waited one hour at the counter and had my mother in a wheelchair. The counter had only one agent. The car I reserved was a Chrysler 300. They gave me an upgrade which was a Jeep but the problem was it was difficult for me to get my mother into it. There were no other cars available.

Well…online charges was fine, however wasn’t complete had to pay 70+ dollars at pick up and I did not have a credit card so it changes the whole drivers deal. I couldn’t drive the vehicle because I didn’t have the same credit card!! Make it to where you pay all up front and this issues will be resolved. Not 💯 satisfied with experience, but who am I? A nobody that will probably never get a response about my experience and don’t really know why I even wasted my time typing this

I asked for a rental out of Orlando, FL Airport. When I arrived I found out that the car was in Sanford, FL 45 minutes away with no shuttle as promised. I could not get to Sanford to pick up the car and they would not honor the reservation in Orlando's Dollar Rental. It cost me $75 to pay a taxi to get me to my hotel and I never got my rental. Had to pay for a taxi the whole time I was in Florida.Could have provided a car at the right airport.

picking up the car was excellent. Everyone most helpful. Car was everything I expected and fun to drive. Dropping off car in lot, I did not appreciate being harassed by the return agent while I was trying to get my 3 pieces of luggage organized, and loose items stowed away, like my GPS. I only asked for 5 minutes, but agent would not leave me alone. However: All in all the best experience I had renting a car at Sanford in a long time.Keys were a wad in my pocket for the entire week. Had to stuff them in a pants pocket wherever I went. How about some thoughtfulness when giving out 4 separate items on a braided steel cord that will not compress flat. Perhaps, give customer the option to "cut the cord" at the counter. Particularly for people dropping off at the pickup point.

Top tips for hiring a car at Orlando Sanford Intl Airport

  • Orlando Sanford Intl Airport (SFB) is the secondary airport that services travellers to Orlando, and as such it tends to be less busy which will make picking up your Orlando Sanford Intl Airport car hire a relatively fast process. As a small airport, getting around will be relatively easy. It is conveniently located, and it will only take roughly 25–35min to drive from the airport to downtown Orlando. Your own hire car gives you more freedom and will let you decide whether you wish to travel into the city centre or go straight to one of the city’s amusement parks.
  • Make sure you understand your provider's return policy before you pick up your car hire at Orlando Sanford Intl Airport. Some will have a simple drop-off process whereas others will take more time and need you to plan ahead. Some companies ask that you book a time slot for your return when you take the car while others will give you a deadline. Most providers offer after-hours returns but make sure you know if the charges cease at drop off or continue to accrue until the company opens the next day.
  • Orlando is a popular tourist destination so the airport can get busy. Generally, the easiest time to pick up and drop off your car will be on the weekend or on a weekday during the early morning or late afternoon and evening. However, all the providers at the airport are usually open between 08:00 and 23:00 and some are open until 23:59 giving you some extra flexibility. After-hours pick up and drop off services are available from most companies that provide car hire at Orlando Sanford Intl Airport, but these are required to be booked ahead of time. Make sure you check the car for any damages and understand what your insurance covers to avoid any unexpected fees.
  • Some providers will offer a premium service that includes full insurance, a full tank of petrol and extra car seats. This can often work out cheaper as a package than if you acquire these individually from other sources. Companies such as Alamo will sometimes allow you to choose a specific vehicle from the category you've chosen.
