6.0 GoodMar 21 2019
Pros: Picking up the vehicle was easy and we were treated well. The staff at the pick up area was helpful and friendly.Cons: Returning the car was not as smooth as the pick up. The staff members tried to make us sign a paper assuming responsibilities for damage to the front left wheel. We refused to sign because the "damage" they claimed the wheel suffered was barely visible. We felt targeted.
8.0 ExcellentMar 21 2019
Pros: Bad initial experience. The car was supposed to carry 5 people and carry 2 suitcases. It was 1.1 litre inderpowered (hyundai?) and barely suitable. The car battery was dead and car hsd benn previously jump started. Needed replacement vehicle. Lost 2days of holiday as a result but new car excllentCons: Avis Strand office at Somersetwest responded excellently in providing replacement car but CT airport should never have allowed the first substandard car to have been issued.
7.6 GoodMay 28 2018
Pros: Staff at avis was really friendly. Car they gave me has less milage on it.Cons: When car was handed over to me was not clean and had no floor mats inside.
6.0 GoodApr 2 2018
Pros: Everything was great except that I cant figure out how to access my final receipt.Cons: Everything was great except that I cant figure out how to access my final receipt.
10.0 ExcellentMar 6 2018
Smooth sailingPros: I liked walking into a busy office with a long line and walking right up to the preferred customer desk. It was an amazing feeling. Checkin was quick and easy, our car ran smoothly on a long road trip. When we returned it we didn't have to even go inside. We were met outside right away. Great experience.Cons: Our car had an awkward luggage cover up that we were constantly battling. A quirk of the Toyota Avanza I suppose.
10.0 ExcellentJan 28 2018
Excellent rental experiencePros: Professional and helpful staff. Easy pickup and drop off.Cons: Nothing
2.0 MediocreJan 21 2018
very poor experience - rude employees, old and dirty carPros: location - close to my hotel in cape townCons: price was different than advertised employees were rude car was old, manual gear (automatic is extra charge), and dirty - and I didn't choose the lowest class of cars..
10.0 ExcellentDec 13 2017
Pros: Car was reasonable and the same as the price quoted when we reserved.. We were allowed to use our credit card insurance and service was quick when picking up even though the office was very crowded that evening..
10.0 ExcellentDec 11 2017
Pros: The service was excellentCons: Make it clear that you need to pay a deposit for the car

4.0 OkayJan 3 2020
Pros: The staff had to make efforts to explain the extra money they charge...and its very uncofortable to accept the explanation, and unacceptable, once I'd payed for the rental and insurance previously! It was a bad holiday begining... After this experience, I'm checking my VISA account all the time, to verify the expected refund. The drop off was ok.Cons: You must change the way of doing business. More clear, transparent and balanced value for money. Ca'nt recomend Hertz! Hope Kayak as some usefull feedback to our total insatisfaction!
6.0 GoodJan 3 2020
Cons: We waited for an hour and 45 minutes for our car. This has been our experience the last few times we’ve used Hertz. No apologies or discounts.
5.6 OkayOct 25 2019
Cons: Well, the car had too many smart features, which were annoying.
10.0 ExcellentSep 23 2019
Pros: Gentleman behind the counter was very knowledgeable, helpful and professional.Cons: Drop off location signs were a little confusing.
2.0 MediocreAug 23 2019
Pros: Nothing, I never picked up the car.Cons: Nothing. I never picked up the car.
10.0 ExcellentJul 30 2019
Cons: Pick up at night. Lot not as well lit as I would have preferred going into unfamiliar country.
8.0 ExcellentJun 9 2019
Pros: It was a quick process and the car was great!Cons: When I'd call for help over the phone, I was constantly being transferred to different people and having to reexplain what I needed.
8.8 ExcellentApr 6 2019
Cons: Queue for pickup took a bit of time.
6.8 GoodMar 20 2019
Pros: The car I received was well worn, lots of dents etc, but at least no one wanted to steal it since it was in such poor condition.Cons: I expect more from Hertz, this more like a car you would get from some unknown rental company.
3.6 MediocreJan 2 2019
Cons: Hertz had overbooked, which in general was understandable given the holiday season, but the staff did not explain this to us until 30 minutes after we had waited in line, and they asked that we return the next day but could not guarantee that a car would be available. We ended up renting from another car agency at the airport which was also overbooked but was able to find a car for us.

10.0 ExcellentNov 14 2017
Pros: The price!Cons: The reservation took a while to show up in the system but finally showed up just before I had to pay more to rent.
3.6 MediocreOct 16 2017
Over ChargedCons: When I booked the car on line, the total cost was 212 ZAR. When I picked the car up, I had to pay 301 ZAR, which included 52.63 ZAR contract fee and they threw in a VAT of 37.05 ZAR. Very disappointed!
8.4 ExcellentApr 15 2017
Easy nearby collectionPros: Easy pick up drop offCons: Car really small for bags but comfortable to drive
6.8 GoodMar 7 2017
Cons: I have ordered a mid sized car but none was available so they gave me a large 8 sitter which was hard to drive and hard to park.
6.0 GoodFeb 27 2017
Pros: Once I got the correct car, was very niceCons: My car wasn't read at time of rental, there was an issue booking through Kayak as a third party booking service. As a result, instead of having an SUV, I was given a base model pick-up. Dollar was very good about changing it out the next day, but only after I had to make several phone calls and be available for an exchange, which impacted the plans for my vacation. Lastly, I have a charge on my credit card that occurred several days after my issue free return, for which I have been unable to get an answer for. Tank was full, no tickets, and no other issues upon return, so I an still waiting to learn why I have an extra charge.
2.0 MediocreFeb 11 2017
Cons: Never actually rented the car. After waiting 3 hours (arrived at 9am) for a car, we decided to cancel a reservation. Multiple other people cancelled as well. Staff were friendly, but disorganized and had zero concept of time to expect car.
2.0 MediocreFeb 11 2017
Pros: Company refused to run my card so I never got the car. Spent a long time waiting in line for nothing. Went to another dealership and that was much better.

7.6 GoodJul 15 2019
Pros: Nice car, though not a large model it was fine for five of us and luggageCons: They're really sticklers about examining the cars here. They will find damage.
6.8 GoodFeb 25 2019
Pros: Good clear carCons: Pickup was fast. When I dropped the car off, I was badgered about a dent in the door. The dent was noted when I picked up the car but they wanted me to produce the check list. I didnt have it on me, and they were not satisfied when I pointed out that they had a copy of the checklist themselves.
3.6 MediocreAug 27 2018
DisappointedPros: The car wasn’t the right car I chose in Kayak website. They but me in difficult position when I arrived. Car was small size and not enough to my needs. However they blames Kayak and they haven’t any solutionsCons: I would prefer to use other applications to hair my next vacation and with different providers as I have support from kayak or Budget with my respect to there names

Buy the protection from Kayak upfront!Pros: The car worked well, and the checkout process was well done. THe people at the counter were extremely patient as I needed to check on Collisions Damage Waiver, etc. with another company. The coverage offered by Kayak at the bottom of the confirmation email was much less expensive, so I definitely recommend taking this if you want coverage.Cons: Optional coverage was outrageous. Signage to return the car was poor. It's marked something like Rental Car Shade or something strange like that.

6.4 GoodMar 13 2020
Cons: They presented us a higher total price at first. I had to produce a copy of my booking to get the lower price I had booked the car for. The car had really poor performance. Anything over 50kmph was a lot of effort. It felt like the car was going to break down.
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2018
Left in trouble by ThriftyPros: nothingCons: Despite turning up on time on the day with a printed copy of the booking confirmation with Thrifty i was told my booking was cancelled and they could not help me. No apology, just matter of fact, we don't care about your booking confirmation we have no cars your booking is cancelled please go away! On one of the busiest days of the year, in a holiday city, i was left looking for an alternative. I eventually found another company in the city, where i had to pay double the price of the Thrifty booking. This company told me that they had been receiving people like me all week as Thrifty had over booked their capacity!
4.0 OkayJul 3 2017
Impossible to contactCons: Another driver hit our rental car while in Madrid. Thrifty kept over 500 Euros for the damage until the other driver's insurance. I have been calling and emailing Thrifty Madrid for 2 months and have not yet spoken to a human being, even though the insurance claim was already paid.
6.0 GoodMay 1 2017
Cons: The canopy was not able to lock and I was not provided with a padlock as an alternative option.
6.0 GoodMar 20 2017
Car was not quite what it was supposed to be.Pros: It was an adequate substitute.Cons: It was old, scratched, dented and not very clean. The back lock was broken.
3.6 MediocreFeb 8 2017
I have experienced the worst customer service at TCons: I had to chase someone to help me with the car inspection, yet customers of a different race from me (white) were allocated two people for the car inspection. When I called to inquire about something I was told to hold for the supervisor, the phone ran once and then he hung up on me.
9.6 ExcellentFeb 6 2017
Pros: Great customer service when I picked up the car.Cons: Car was a little dirty still. There was sand in the box in between the front seats. Otherwise a great car.
4.8 OkayJan 30 2017
You can't help a customer a key locked in the car?Pros: Pickup and Dropoff was fine. The vehicle was more or less what we expected.Cons: I needed some help when I accidentally locked my keys in the truck of the vehicle. I realize this is my fault, but the staff lied and told me someone was en route to assist me. Further they told me I would receive a call from the manager. Nearly two hours after requesting emergency assistance, I received a call wherein I learned that Thrifty in SA does not unlock cars and I would have to do it myself. Thanks! I would have loved to have that information two hours prior. Foreign country, unusual circumstances, unhelpful/rude lying staff. Will not rent here again.
6.0 GoodJan 29 2017
Google reviews weren't accuratePros: There were a lot of review on google about this location adding charges without merit. I had no such experience. It was a regular car rental without incident. I picked the car up. I used it for 10 days and I dropped it off. I did all the things that you do with a rental car, filled it with gas, didn't get tickets and returned it unscathed. Paid the amount we agreed upon and that was that.
9.2 ExcellentJan 23 2017
Pros: Good car, value and service for a last-minute rentalCons: Limited opening hours on a Sunday (only until 3pm) and no ability to leave car after hours.
