6.0 GoodJun 15 2021
Pros: Staff at pick up was very friendly but told me I couldn't return the car to the location for which I had a confirmed booking. She said that location had been closed. I had to choose a different location and rebook. This caused me to have to arrange a different pick up and more time.Cons: If they updated their site to not allow me to book a drop off at a closed location.
2.0 MediocreJun 9 2021
Pros: nothingCons: car was previously smoked in and reeked of smoke
8.0 ExcellentApr 11 2021
Cons: The pick up process was stressful
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Pros: Not much.Cons: The location was incredibly understaffed. I waited over an hour to get my car because they only had one person working for multiple rental agencies. When I got the car, it had a large gash in the front tire and had to be replaced. All told, it took 2 hours to get the car. Hertz needs to staff their locations with an appropriate amount of people to service the number of customers they get.
2.0 MediocreJan 8 2021
Pros: Convenient shuttle, but that is about it.Cons: Car was not available. 4.5 hour wait at 1am in the morning with a family waiting
6.0 GoodJan 4 2021
Pros: I liked the attendant, Natlin.Cons: Everything else was awful! The rental was extremely dirty and due to the lack of cleanliness I stuck my finger in someone’s leftover food during a pandemic.
10.0 ExcellentNov 30 2020
Cons: Nothing. Excellent service
9.6 ExcellentSep 25 2020
Pros: Helpful staff, hassle-free, fast serviceCons: Costs a bit more, but you pay for the good service and convenience.
4.0 OkaySep 23 2020
Pros: The people are very friendly.Cons: I had to wait over one hour forty minutes them to get the car. Which made me three hours late for work.
6.0 GoodSep 8 2020
Pros: Pick up and drop were easyCons: The cars paint was terrible and the interior glass was filthy. Also smelled of smoke and had cigarette burns in the drivers seat

6.0 GoodMar 1 2021
Pros: I was unaware that the rental car place would be closed for the return.Cons: I believe the cleanliness of the vehicle was not up to par and that time needs to be taken to shampoo the interior. The seats were stained and the carpet could have been vacuumed. It did not feel at all comfortable. I believe the outside only was washed and that was it.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 15 2021
Pros: Value for the price and I even was able to keep for an extra day.Cons: Nothing at this time.

5.6 OkayJan 2 2020
Pros: The car was cleanCons: This location always has you waiting for a car, the car had issues with a sensor that would flash at you while you drive and turn on and off. The radio system would just spontaneously restart while driving, and they have no room for drop offs the lot was overflowing and th car has to be street parked.
10.0 ExcellentDec 31 2019
Pros: Friendly staff, provided free upgrade, and drop off after returning the carCons: Location of store is slightly less convenient from downtown but still offered great value

Pros: Staff were friendly. I was charged for gas even though I returned the car full tank.
2.0 MediocreJan 21 2019
Pros: Nothing was not given a vehicle.Cons: Awareness that I needed a specific card in order to be able to rent a vehicle.
3.6 MediocreAug 6 2018
Disrespectful Staff in AberdeenPros: None.Cons: When I went to drop off the car in Aberdeen the staff was not nice and he said there is an extra charge of $50 for not dropping the car in Baltimore and when I tried to explain what the staff told me in Washington DC he said it is not my business pay the $50 or take the car to Baltimore. And I had to be pay extra $50.
6.0 GoodJul 16 2018
Pros: Couldn’t beat the price for a last minute one way tripCons: Rental agent was not there when I arrived for my pickup. Called the number that was left on the desk and he was 15 minutes away. Car fuel tank was not full.
4.4 OkayDec 1 2017
Pros: Cheap, pick up/dropmoff conviently located.Cons: Car was dirty upon pick up (covered in dog fur). They were unable to tell me the cost of a late fee and pressured me into extending for one day instead. This left me feeling cheated and scammed.
3.2 MediocreOct 31 2017
Wrong location...no helpPros: I specifiicially asked for a car rental at the airport. Was given one downtown. The counter at the airport was rude, wouldn't explain until after he charged me$400 what had happened. Still waiting for the refund on my charge card.Cons: Your servive
8.0 ExcellentSep 12 2017
Cons: The rental said it was at the airport but it turned out that is from some other offsite. Was not clear on the rental so I went to the wrong place. They were able to rent me a car at the airport location but it cost me more. Not happy about that.
2.0 MediocreJul 22 2017
Cons: I was never informed that the rental office had very limited hours on Sunday. When I arrived one hour after my initially anticipated time I found that the office was closed. I had to find another rental office that was open, take a taxi all the way to the airport to get it, and ended up paying over two times the initially anticipated price. The entire experience was horrible and I ended up canceling my kayak-rented car. I remain very disappointed with the entire transaction.

Cons: Gave me the wrong pick up time so when I showed up they were closed. The 800 number offered no help and were clueless as to how to resolve the issue...i.e. Get me another car asap from the nearest location. I cancelled the reservation and hertz made it happen with no effort on my part.
4.4 OkayJul 11 2017
Kayak booked for wrong locationPros: I booked a rental car to be picked/dropped at Baltimore airport through Kayak; however, the booking was done for a different location, about 30-40 miles from the airport. I did not realize that at the time of booking, as I had entered BWI as pickup/drop off location and thought that the address shown with my rental booking was for the airport Avis location. This was my first visit to Baltimore and and I have no idea of the name of roads for airport Avis location or otherwise. KAYAK SHOULD MAKE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR AT THE TIME OF BOOKING THAT THE RESERVATION IS FOR DIFFERENT LOCATION, PARTICULARLY IN CASE OF AIRPORT, AS NO BODY KNOWS/REMEMBERS AIRPORT LOCATION ADDRESS FOR EVERY CITY. the Avis staff at BWI airport was good and helpful. Avis 800 customer care sucks, was dishonest and quoted much higher price than that quoted at the airport office.Cons: I booked a rental car to be picked/dropped at Baltimore airport on 07/09/2017 through Kayak; however, the booking was done for a different location, about 30-40 miles from the airport. I did not realize that at the time of booking, as I had entered BWI as pickup/drop off location and thought that the address shown with my rental booking was for the airport Avis location.

5.6 OkayApr 23 2017
No after hours drop offPros: Convenient location for drop off.Cons: Could not do an after-hours drop-off at Baltimore location, which meant we had to pay for a night of parking though we were done with the car.
10.0 ExcellentMar 21 2017
Quick and smooth servicePros: Excellent experience, no waiting, quick service, everyone was polite. Mitsubishi lancer I got as a compact was surprisingly good car and comfortable, too. Would rent again.Cons: Nothing went wrong

10.0 ExcellentMay 19 2021
Pros: Friendly staff - no line, immediate service. Everything was explained and thorough. Saved a bunch of money vs. renting at BWI as we didn't have the airport-related fees, and the rate itself was much cheaper. Even with a few Ubers back and forth to make it happened, we probably saved $300 for a 12-day rental.Cons: Facility isn't the nicest in the world, but it serves the purpose.
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2021

3.6 MediocreOct 13 2020
Pros: The staff member who helped me was great - very professional and helpful.Cons: The office was dirty and needed a lot of maintenance. The staff member who was helping me was wonderful but the rest of the staff were being loud and goofing off - making it difficult to hear and very distracting.
3.2 MediocreJan 26 2020
Pros: Nothing. I just meet a fraudulent agent. I reserved everything online, and I bought full coverage as well. When I arrived at NextCar agent at Liberty road, Baltimore, the person told me that we can not give you the car unless you buy our personal full coverage ( the value was twice the typical one near 25$/day). They told me that I have to cancel the ones that I bought online. Officially they had no commitment to my online reservation.

Safety issues !!!Pros: Nothing to like in this placeCons: The cars are Filthy inside out. they don't take time to clean them, i had to change 3 cars to finally agree on one. the first one had a bold tires, the second one had scratches all over the car but you can't determine the damages as the body is dirty. the last one was OK with a bad tire sensor that kept displaying an error every time you start the car plus a change oil message that kept prompting. If i have time i would report them to the BBB. Not worth the money i paid. VERY disappointing that kayak list them on their website. i use to trust kayak!
4.0 OkayMay 4 2016
ServicePros: The car was decent but smelled funny, change the oil light was on.Cons: Service was terrible, was promised unlimited miles before booking but it wasnt true, they said faster checkout with a major credit card but still had to jump through many loops to prove I had my own insurance even after acknowledging that my credit card would cover me, a way for them to try and sell me unnecessary add ons. Tried to explain it to the associate but she shrugged me off telling me it's policy, false advertising is what it is.
3.6 MediocreApr 23 2016
Never againPros: The car worked.Cons: They were rude when we picked up the car, they were incredibly rude when calling our insurance provider, whom we know personally. They were incredibly vague about the drop-off policy and threatened an abandonment fee when I even brought it up. I called corporate to resolve the issue and the people I spoke to, serveral people, we're even more rude, dismissive, and insulting. I was out in hold mid-sentence and transferred without any notification to the stor, which had no idea why I'd been transferred. I completely regret using them. The car had an air freshener hanging from the nirror, but still smelled.
2.0 MediocreMar 25 2016
SCAMCons: The facility was not at the airport. The facility was closed before I was even reasonably able to travel the 30 minutes from the airport to get there. They transfer you to their "sister" company at the airport and apply "airport" fees to hike up your reservation. They steal your money with a smile on their face.
