10.0 ExcellentMar 16 2021
Cons: This was one of the best hertz rental experience I have ever had. Great price, ease in extending my rental, excellent service.
2.0 MediocreJan 31 2021
Pros: NothingCons: The vehicle being available. Pickup location said the vehicle wasn’t available and that the online reservation doesn’t care if anything is available that they get paid no matter what. The pick up locations wasn’t accommodating or tried to locate a vehicle at another location in the area.
10.0 ExcellentMar 16 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful! Kelly and NeShawnde were very helpful and very nice!!
2.0 MediocreAug 1 2019
Pros: I was given a full refund in 7 - 10 days.Cons: My car rental location was not at the airport where I landed. I had asked for Lafayette LA airport and was given an off-site location that was closed when I landed. Hertz managers did not help and left me stranded without a car and unable to get to my hotel an 1:45 mins away. Very disappointed.
8.4 ExcellentJul 26 2019
Cons: A/C did not seem to work with in the car. This is pretty unacceptable in Louisiana.
10.0 ExcellentMay 17 2019
Pros: No waiting. Car was clean and handled well.
2.0 MediocreApr 26 2019
Pros: We noticed tire pressure reducing on our second day with the car. We filled the tire with air, and reported the issue to Hertz as soon as we got back to our room. I expected them to send someone out to, perhaps, change the tire. But no, we were told to take the back to the airport. Then...Cons: We were exhausted but took the car in. The worker said we’d have to trade cars out and did we fill up the tank! I said no...then she states I will most likely be charged for a new tire! I was shocked. I called the next day to check on this, and she said I wouldn’t know till Monday (weekend). still ?
5.6 OkayApr 25 2019
Cons: We had a change of plans, added a night and they made us drive back and check out and then back in with the same car.
7.6 GoodMar 25 2019
Pros: Nice car, late model Kia Soul.Cons: Hertz did not have a mid-size car "ready" for me on time, but they offered to upcharge me into a a lg SUV, which I declined. Within a reasonable amount of time got me the Kia. However, when it came time to pass papers, they did not automatically accept my Kayak contract, or my Allianz insurance.
9.2 ExcellentMay 13 2018
A very busy rental car store.Pros: Professionalism, knowledge and courtesy of the Hertz store employees.Cons: This store is extremely busy and insurance paid rentals take longer to process than other types of reservations so they could use more employees to handle the ongoing demand for their cars. The parking lot is very small so it is hard to maneuver in it.

2.0 MediocreMar 9 2017
No carPros: NothingCons: Upon arriving at the Alamo counterat Lafayette regional there was a sign that said 'no cars available'. I waited for the clerk to surface thinking since I had a reservation they would have one left. She told me that all cars were gone. I asked her what the purpose of. Reservation was if there was. no car upon my arrival. She said I could take a cab and request reimbursement I then had to rent a Ford Focus for $63/ per day from a competitor
10.0 ExcellentFeb 9 2017
Great rental experience with Alamo at Lafayette, LPros: The customer service associates were polite, fun and very helpful. The Infiniti Q50 was a pleasure to drive. I may buy one !! Thanks Alamo !
8.0 ExcellentOct 17 2016
Pros: I experienced total loss with the flood in Louisiana, including 2 cars. Insurance is moving along incredibly slowly and apparently there was not rental included in our coverage. Therefore, I have to pay for everything myself. As a Realtor, a care us essential! While I will eventually be able to write it on taxes as a business expense I STILL have to pay for it. Not sure why no one seems to get that part! The affordability of the car and it's overall good condition is the KEY to my survival as a mom if busy children and an REALTOR trying to provide for my family.

2.0 MediocreMay 15 2021
Cons: They need to make it explicitly clear (online and at rental kiosk) that they do not accept Debit cards so we don’t wait an hour in line at the airport only to find out that I can’t rent a car when I finally speak to the employee.
6.0 GoodApr 24 2021
Cons: Drop off experience was not smooth. No one available to ask questions. Drop off in Kenner was somewhat of a nightmare. Next time I’ll allow at least an hour extra time
8.4 ExcellentFeb 18 2020
Cons: Having certain rental cars that you can smoke in for a long trip
6.8 GoodNov 19 2019
Pros: Easy pick up process, friendly staff.Cons: Incorrect billing, that I only found out about after checking with my bank - no receipt at drop-off, no reason for extra charge. The company fixed the problem, but I had to call in and inquire and wait for a refund.

8.4 ExcellentMay 5 2016
Mostly impressed.Pros: Very nice and helpful lady working the counter. Nice vehicle with more features than a typical rental car has...auto seats, lumbar support...it was a nice mini van.Cons: Had to lift the seats to transport things and it was pretty dirty under them. It was a last minute rental so it was more expensive than usual in Lafayette.
9.2 ExcellentOct 13 2015
Cons: New rental car pickup/dropoff area at Lafayette airport isn't laid out well at all...

Pros: NothingCons: Flight arrived after rental car office was closed. No refund and reservation was cancelled because I wasn't there on time. Booked through Travelocity. Will never do that again.
4.4 OkayNov 14 2020
Cons: Car was dirty with food on steering wheel and center counsel windows were so dirty I had to pull over and wife a circle so I could see out of it. Vehicle was supposed to be Covid-19 safety sanitized with a sticker and no such thing. Also I reserved a SUV and ended up in an Nissan Altima and told “oh well it’s all we have”

Nothing but trouble...Pros: I didn't like any part of it!Cons: The lady at the Dollar/Hertz rental was very rude! I didn't get the car I reserved and missed out on the entire Thanksgiving Holiday with my Father and sisters. I got charged $45.00 for insurance that I didn't get to use! I am beyond pissed off!
10.0 ExcellentOct 24 2017
Pros: Quick pickup and drop off and an excellent value.
8.0 ExcellentOct 15 2017
Pros: The car and program was fineCons: The agent in Lafayette kept us quite a long time trying to sell upgrades and insurance. Due to this sales approach the other people ahead of us delayed us by close to an hour, which caused us to miss a function that we were supposed to attend. We arranged the car in advance in order to avoid delay in pick up because we knew time was short to get to our destination. Also the deposit of over $100 was not given as expected at car return because my husband left the keys in the car instead of bringing them to the desk, and we were asked to go to the gate instead of retrieving the keys. I can only hope that this will be corrected and our refund processed. Thank you. Everything else about the car was fine.
10.0 ExcellentJul 5 2017
Pros: Everything was great
10.0 ExcellentJun 20 2017

Pros: I really liked Neshanda (maybe I misspelled her name). Very helpful. Helped me get another vehicle since the mini van I reserved was not there.Cons: I hate not getting the vehicle I reserved on line. You showed a mini van but that is not what I got. Why do you ALWAYS bait and switch? I do not think I have ever gotten the exact vehicle I have reserved. Why?????
5.2 OkayApr 10 2017
Dirty car- scratches all over - needed brake job and 40k miles.Pros: Not much of anything about the rental.Cons: Car was dirty in inside. Scratches all over outside of car. Brakes made noise because of a needed brake job, and the car had 40k miles on it. Worse rental I had in years.
6.8 GoodFeb 14 2016
Didn't get what I reservedPros: People were friendlyCons: I booked a Suburban or similar. Was called the day before and was asked if a mini van would be ok. I said yes. When we got there we got a Cheverolet Traverse. Not at all big enough for the people and luggage we had. Very disappointed!

2.0 MediocreOct 14 2018
Scheduling oversitePros: Appreciated the confirmation call.Cons: My pickup was scheduled and confirmed for 2:00 on a Saturday. I arrived at 1:55 and the business was closed for the day. I took a cab back to the airport and rented from a different agency.
10.0 ExcellentApr 12 2018
Loved the chevy crusePros: I've rented cars several times from several locations, my best experience ever. In and out very quickly.Cons: Location is very hard to get in and out of, traffic in Lafayette is horrible, but it was worth it.
3.2 MediocreFeb 22 2018
Cons: I couldn’t because they give it away, not a phone call, NOTHING.
6.0 GoodAug 17 2017
MehPros: Because my flight was late they had to move my reservation to the airport branch instead of the off the airport branch and I ended up having to pay about $50 more bucks. The counter clerk was nice, he tried to get me some discounts. But their drop off location is in a weird lot that has you walk through the side of the airport and there is no one there to hand the keys to. So you go to the same counter you got the car from and of course they ask what your mileage was, like I know?
2.0 MediocreFeb 13 2017

4.0 OkayFeb 12 2017
Pros: Courteous agentCons: Enterprise only had one car to offer me for one-way. This 2016 Corolla with 23k miles was disgustingly dirty inside (upholstery, dash, windows) and smelled of pets and cigarettes. Under no condition should this car should not be in their rental fleet!
10.0 ExcellentJan 14 2017
Helpful staff, flexible returnPros: Enterprise staff could not have been more helpful. Our return flight was cancelled due to snow, so we had to return the car to New Orleans rather than Lafayette. They changed the return and did not charge a one-way fee. Great car, excellent service, no nickel-and-dimeing. That's a winning combination.
6.0 GoodOct 26 2016
I am most baffled.....read on....Pros: I thought I loved the price. But actually I have no idea what the cost will be. I was supposed to get an email from Enterprise. I was supposed to get a phone call from the office I rented from in Lafayette, LA. I got neither.Cons: The awful communications process. The unfulfilled promises.
6.8 GoodOct 1 2016
Pros: Service was great. The staff were pleasant and quick to take care of me when I walked in.Cons: Windshield was dirty and wipers were worn. I had to stop at gas station to clean. Smelled like smoke.
