Very disappointed. They took the reservation but when I got to the rental counter after taking a $30 Uber ride from the airport. I was told that they had no cars and could not fullfil my reservation. The desk clerk also said that they had taken another 120 reservations overnight and they would be unable to fill those too. What is the point of taking a reservation knowing that you are not going to be able to honor the commitment? This was very poor service and I shall not be using Hertz anytime soon.

Everything went smoothly. Drop-off was easy. Melanie assisted at drop-off and she was very pleasant considering she had another customer that was seated in the lobby continually interjecting and yelling at her as she tried to assist me.

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was very helpful and friendly. They quickly realized the issue caused by booking through Kayak which was they identified an Enterprise 20 miles from the airport at a different price. We still had to pay higher price due to a tax difference.

Cons:

Kayak listed car rental places that were not near BDL airport so the competitive pricing was misleading. The Enterprise by BDL had to re-book our car rental at a higher price. We could have paid less through Alamo. The car we got was out alignment and I noticed the yellow dash indicator.

Pros:

Picked up my car at the West Hartford CT location and dropped it at the Bradley International Airport location. Both are staffed with personable, friendly and efficient people. I had to bring a car back because of an issue and had no problems getting a better car at the West Hartford location. I had filled the gas tank when I picked up the first car and the customer service person gave me credit for bringing back a car with a full tank of gas.

I couldn't reach support. No live people. They messed up my booking and when I went to cancel it online they tried to charge me 400. So I had to call my credit card company to dispute. They someone called me from the company to confirm I was taking the car two days prior to the booking and was a complete dock saying it was my fault. Do not do business with this company

Pros:

Nothing at all after checking my reservation it stated that sixt will be closing at 3pm and we gave them a call to let them know that our flight will be getting in at 2:15 pm and once we got there we was told that someone else took the car that we reserved for weeks ago. This facility rather more money over customer service I will not be booking with this company ever again even if it's my last resort. I will take a lyfe or Uber first before stepping into this establishment again
