Cons: I got the impression that this was on site and would not involve a shuttle. The shuttle was quick and easy, but not as quick, easy and tip free as those right there in the terminal.

Only open til 7PM
Pros: Nothing
Cons: They called the morning of my flight to confirm my arrival. Told them I arrive at 6:45PM. They said call and they will pick me up. Flight was 20 min late and I call. No answer, no car. Had to wait in line at Palm Springs airport and rent another vehicle. They did not tell me they close at 7 and it might be iffy on their end. They knew my flight number and scheduled arrival time. Flight landed at 7:05PM and they did not care. They went home. DO NOT RECOMMEND

Honest reliable service and a good price
Pros: Our car was pretty dinged up with scrapes and even what looked like cigarette burns on the seat. The vehicle had close to 40,000 miles on it. We initially didn't see a rock chip on the windshield because it was raining and we thought we would get hassled about it. We did not. They were honest about the chip being there when we picked up the car. The car ran well, the shuttle service to and from the airport was on-time and friendly and the price point for this vehicle was very good. We would use them again.

Pros: Picked us up at the airport and drove us to the rental car pickup right on time. Car was basically brand new and super clean. Staff was friendly. They drove us back to the airport when we dropped the car off. I would totally rent from them again!

Much better option than the places at the airport
Pros: No line .. they picked me up promptly & had me on the road in no time. No hassles, no problems. Had to extend 2x on the rental & had no problems. Have already recommended to 2 friends & would use again!

Terrible attempts to upsale me.
Cons: I had a 12 o'clock pickup time at a location that, unknown to me, closed at 12 o'clock. How can that even be possible? And then on top of that when I got there at 11:50 my vehicle wasn't even there and I was forced to wait. Although I was offered a car that just happened to be there and ready at twice the price. I arrived by taxi and never once was it mentioned that a $20 credit/reimbursement might be an option even though I later read that on the website. The employee tried to sell me the insurance by questioning my insurance deductible and trying to convince me that my $500 was most likely $5,500. What a terrible tactic to sell me something I already said I didn't want or need. He also went on to warn me that more accidents happen in Palm Springs than any other California city. Really? Come on! Overall I left feeling dirty and that Hertz tried to take advantage of every in order to get more money out of my pocket.

FALSE ADVERTISING, RUDE EMPLOYEES, SHOTTY SYSTEMS,
Pros: Not a single thing.
Cons: 1. The radio worked intermittently. 2. I rented a car from PSP and was then told to pick up my car in Cathedral City. I was then told it would cost more to pickup at PSP. 3. I waited in line for nearly 30 min. because the computer was down. 4. The person at the desk was rude and condescending, he took absolutely no responsibility for the error in rates and blamed it squarely on Kayak. I will never rent from HERTZ again. this was a horrible experience. Justin M. Riordan 503.209.2879

Mid size?
Cons: Pre booked a mid size car. When we got there to pick it up we were told they don't have one. A Toyota Yaris is all they have. My golf clubs barely fit.

BAIT AND SWITCH, TYPICAL OF THE INDUSTRY
Pros: The agents smiled and were articulate while they attempted to carry on what I am sure are the directives of their managers.
Cons: I DIDN'T GET A CAR BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO CHARGE ME $125 MORE THAN MY RESERVED RATE. I ENDED UP WALKING OUT AND CARLESS. I ordered an economy vehicle about an hour before pickup and had a reservation confirmed. I walked into the store and they told me first that nothing was available. This was disappointing to say the least. I explained that I had foregone a car from the enterprise across the street which closed at 5 because of the rate promised to me (they close at 6). The kind agent then told me that I could wait for half an hour to see if the last two reservations that were made further in advance showed. I waited because I had already forfeited my other options. At fifteen minutes after the other reservation, they signaled me to come to the counter and told me I was in luck. However, after taking my ID and credit card, a woman came in and checked in with the other agent (the other reservation). I was told I was out of luck again, but then they advised me they did have one other vehicle available. To my dismay, it was 4 or 5 classes above (but a Kia nonetheless and frankly in my book a kia is always economy). IF I was willing to pay $125 more for my week, then they would make an exception and put me in the vehicle. I explained that I thought Hertz's policy was to offer a complimentary upgrade to a class above (how ever many it took) if a customer had a reservation in classes below. She told me to hold on while she called her manager. I told her I would even be willing to drive the car back the following day and switch it out for an economy and the agent said her manager would only approve the entire week upgrade (with an up charge no matter what) to drive out with any vehicle. Because this is not the first time I have had this happen with hertz, I simply refused to pay any more than my reservation price. They refused to honor the reservation. So, I ended up carless until the following day when I booked with enterprise. Hertz in this area has horrible customer service.. I have been paying out of pocket for rental cars for 12 weeks waiting on my rare vehicle repair. They had an opportunity with me because I walked to their location from my car accident. Misinformation during that rental caused an agent to literally take a car from me when I had been told my rental had been extended and they failed to do so. (I was literally driving a "hot" car for two days.). Then, when I got my bill for that trip, I had been overcharged by almost $500 and had to wait almost three weeks total for the refund. There is a lot of competition among rental companies these days and I highly recommend enterprise or budget over Hertz any day. This was the last time I will fall for their competitive pricing only to be worked over by commission-hungry agents. I am not the only person that feels this way and I will no longer book these cars for my clients. (Last year I booked over 360 car reservations for my travel clientele.)

Long rental, great car
Pros: We rented the car for 6 weeks! Never did that before but it worked. We struck it lucky and happened to get a brand-new car (7 miles on the odometer when we got it!) and that was a treat. No surprises on the price.
Cons: It took a long long time to sign up and to return the car, because we rented it for so long, 6 weeks. Both times the agent had to turn us over to a specialist agent, and I don't find that surprising, but both times the first agent struggled with the problem for a very long time before turning us over. Also had to move our 6 weeks' worth of luggage from first to second agent, far away in one case. The reason we had to deal with an agent on our return was that we switched credit cards -- that ought to be quick and easy, surely?

Professional staff, but car was't ready.
Pros: Friendly & professional staff. Fair pricing. Convenient location.
Cons: Even though I had made a reservation, I had to wait 40 minutes for the car to be prepped.

Great staff but mediocre vehicles.
Pros: The employees were terrific, especially Keith and Jason. However, the first vehicle we received was so smoke tainted that my wife could not handle it. After a few fits and starts we did receive an upgraded vehicle to replace it, a Kia Optima. However, the Optima apparently has a quirk as the passenger front seat is so low to the ground and not adjustable the passengers are not comfortable.
Cons: See above. Also, given the increased rates as compared to the last couple years it seems like the vehicle should be newer than a 2015.
