Pros:

Staff at Hertz was great. Pickup and drop off were easy.

Cons:

The van wasn’t cleaned between me and the last renter. Old candy wrappers and receipts in the console. Steering wheel was even sticky at parts. Very risky to not clean between renters with covid going around

Cons:

reserved car online,arrived 10 minutes before closing on a Saturday. They would not give me a car. The girl ran a soft credit report, my credit score was a 680. So she called a manager. The manager said when they get low on cars they up the credit score. I was the last customer of the day, so those two cars sat there till Monday at least. Then I come home from vacation 4 days later and the money has been taken out of my account. I called and it is going to take 7 to 10 days to have the money returned So NO I am not happy. I had just rented a car from them 2 months earlier. returned it on time with a full tank of gas.NEVER AGAIN!!!!

Pros:

At the turn in the guy was concern about the customer service

Cons:

Take the time at the beginning of the rental to explain charges and deposits, explain about protection insured and deals or discounts rather than just rushing to issue the vehicle because the clerk just wants to go home

I reserved a car for last Friday morning and was called about 8 o'clock and was told that no cars were there yet but that around 10 o'clock that day I should have a vehicle.. I called them back at about 12 noon because I fell asleep waiting and they said that they still did not have any cars available even though I reserved one when so I dozed off again andon't forget and walk backup and it was after 5 o'clock I did not receive a courtesy call to state that No car still had come back in or that they were sorry or that they apologized for the fact that I did reserve a vehicle but still was not given one the whole day And it came across like they honestly just did not care about the customer on that particular situation that particular situation and I understand that they may have been busy but that still doesn't negate them giving someone a courtesy call to simply say we didn't have cars turned in the way they were supposed to be or we just honestly forgot.

Pros:

The gentlemen at the store was very nice.

Cons:

I made a reservation for a smaller car and when I got there they didn’t have it. I was an inconvenience because I need to have a rental for that day so I had to get a truck which I was not expecting to have. Which in turn cost me more than what I planned and budget for.
