5.9 OkayOct 13 2021
Pickup was terrible! They did not have any car in my class. Then they said they do have one but at Pep Boy. And I had to wait for ONE HOUR for the car to be delivered to the rental office. I didn’t even think it was cleaned properly. Then I noticed there were big scratches on the car that they never mentioned. I had to call the guy back to show him. The car drives ok though.

The priceI was disappointed I didn’t get the car I reserved. Customer service sucks. While doing the paperwork I noticed they were closed on Sunday which is when I was planning on returning the car and I was told just drop off the keys in the box. I then waited almost 30 minutes for them to bring me the car. The attendant gave me the keys and walked off. I then took pictures of existing damage and drove off. At the first traffic light I noticed the fuel tank was only 1/4 full. Not seeing a phone number to call I went back to the office to inquire and was told the fuel level is on the back of the key. I’m now behind schedule as it has taken over an hour to get the car and find a gas station. Super annoyed! Then my son gets into the back seat and cuts his hand on an piece of broken glass!!! Then when I returned the car in realize I had been given no instructions on where to park and the office was closed. Very annoyed with hertz.

Check in staff very friendly and helpful.Hours limited, opened at 9AM for drop off. Actually, opened late, was number 4 in line. Clerk was helpful and courteous but late opening put me in time crunch.

I would've appreciated picking up the vehicle on a full tank of gas. I didn't like having to get it, being on a time schedule then having to stop to fill up the vehicle. It was at half a tank when I picked it up.

The inside of the front windshield was not cleaned very well prior to pickup.
3.6 MediocreSep 3 2019
The customer service was horrible. It took me 30 minutes to simply pick up a vehicle. The vehicle was different than what I was expecting and then when I went to return it, it was very confusing where I was to leave the car. All around the experience was not worth it and I won’t be returning.

Called ahead for reservation yet when I got there they did not have the vehicle. HAD to upgrade so cost was way higher. Also I CALLED about extending and the cost was crazy high. Your 1 800 number was terrible as well.

Friendly, courteous staffAvailability of more cars. I had the choice of only 2. Family emergency arisen. I had to leave town at 0230. Alarm on dash began ringing. The Left rear tire was very low on air..29 psi. All other 3 had 35. Had to search for a gas 2:30 in the morning. Unsafe for a female travelling alone

The personnel working at Hertz were nice and apologetic.We had to wait over an hour because they didn't have any cars the size we ordered. They offered us a SUV, if we paid the upgrade fee. When we finally got a car it smelled aweful. They sprayed the car but it didn't help. The back car seat was stained. The trunk was dirty. The staff was nice and apologetic but they didn't offer any type of discount for the inconvenience of waiting over an hour. They offered us a SUV if we wanted to pay the upgrade fee, really...

I like the fact that I was able to get a good rate on a car without going through my insurance.
9.6 ExcellentSep 20 2016
Great customer serviceFrom start to finish the guys at enterprise did a great job. They took care of everything and I was extremely impressed with their professionalism. When I arrived they had a shortage of vehicles & my car wasn't ready quite on time, but they made up for that right away by giving me a discount. They also explained in detail the features of the car & ar the end even drive me home.

Avis FailNothing, because I didn't get a car. When I arrive they told me they were out of cars and wouldn't have been any back in for two days. When I asked if they could help me find a car at another location they said they could not.I didn't like anything about it because I didn't get to go on my vacation because I didn't get a car at Avis because they were sold out even though I had a reservation. Avis sucks

Great car.It took FOREVER. Could Budget be less efficient? I was behind a Romanian with a Maryland driver's license and Budget couldn't cope. Then my agent slow walked my forms. Then I got ferried to another facility where I waited while the car was cleaned. This was during my lunch break from work.

misleadingEasy to cancel the reservationThe rental car office was closed at the time I was scheduled to pick the car up. I reserved a minivan, but they only had a full van.

I got to the budget drop off in Torrance at 1:30 in the afternoon and there wasn't anybody around. I waited 20 mins. And the guy showed up. Maybe they need more than one person working there.

Car hire excess insurance in Carson

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Carson car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Carson.


Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Carson car rental.
