Pros:

Car rental staff was nice, the location can't be beat--just get off the down escalator right by Baggage Claim and there it is!

Cons:

Renters were at the mercy of whoever looked at the long list of reservations and did not authorize delivering more cars for rental until an SOS from the desk staff. Waited over an hour for cars to be available so they could rent them--NOT professional at all and very unhappy customers!

The process of checking the car back in could have gone a little smoother. I was nervous about leaving the car without at least giving the keys to someone.

They upgraded me to a larger vehicle for no additional charge.

I returned it early before office hours. They billed me $229 which was more than the rental fee for an extra driver. But corrected it after my complaint.

Pros:

Staff was helpful at counter. (Hertz counter) Vehicle was very clean.

Cons:

No one meets you at drop off so you have to guess where to leave vehicle. I carried my paperwork in to the Dollar Office and gave it to rental employee. I was asked if email receipt was okay, which it was.

Pros:

Hated everything . I was left without a car in Huntsville, Alabama.

Cons:

The Dollar counter was closed. A sign referred me to Hertz’s counter. The sign said they were closed at 5pm. My flight was delayed. There was no alternative. So, no car. Disaster.

Continually increasing vehicle rental rates are a major concern. Hertz has competitive rates compared to other rental agencies (which is primary reason I selected Hertz) but the cost has me considering flying instead. The rental vehicle itself (Ford Expedition Max) was fine/met my needs however we had problems with the keyless entry/ignition system more than once. Specifically, the key fob stopped working; we were told it was due to fob connecting to local WiFi rather than continuing to communicate with the vehicle and that this problem is much more common with Ford vehicles/keyless systems.
