the car had sensors that went off the entire time seatbelt and forward driving aids my son and i tried everything to get the constant alarm 🚨 to stop headache all day and night on our trip! When i told the lady at the hertz rental she just acted like i put something heavy on the seat must be and made the alarm go off! No big deal that you had to hear alarms constantly while driving in unfamiliar places while trying to navigate you have to listen to extremely loud alarms 🚨 sensors that are messed up!

Pros:

The price was affordable for a one-way rental. So much so, that I’ll still consider Hertz if/when I have a need for another one-way rental.

Cons:

The staff at my pickup location were a bit unfriendly and bad mouthed another customer who was on the phone. At one point, one of he staff members mentioned that the last time he was in NJ (where my bf is from), that a group of black guys tried to haggle him for money in Atlantic City - just unprofessional.

Pros:

The staff was friendly and courteous. They greeted us promptly and assisted us in our reservation. They didn't have anymore cars so they have us a free upgrade. They dropped us off at the airport.

Cons:

They were able to drop us off at the airport, however they were not able to pick us up from there because they had an enterprise in the airport. Also after realizing that, they would allow us to transfer the reservation without paying extra, so we had to take a 17.00 cab to the other enterprise.

Pros:

We got there to pick it up and they did not have the car we rented. We reserved a minivan for a family camping trip with 6 people. They had a Tahoe with no storage room for our stuff. The attendant did not offer solutions, or help us find another car. We had to scramble to find a mini van, driving to another town and spending $150 more. I had called dollar that morning to say we’d be late to pick up. They even confirmed my mini van. Worst experience, we ended up leaving hours later for our trip and having to set up camp in the dark with kids.

Cons:

They could have had the right car or at least called us to tell us they didn’t.
