Pros:

These folks go above and beyond when it comes to customer service! I was in and out in minutes, both picking up and dropping off. I have rented from the others on that strip and can honestly say HERTZ you make renting a car in Winter Haven Florida the best there is both price and convenience.I was charged just what my kayak online reservation was made for, no surprises, It was truly a pleasure doing business with you!

Cons:

Having to talk to the 800 person to extend my reservation for a day. She was rude, didn't listen to me, and didn't have good command of the English language.If she would have been my first point of contact I would not have booked with Hertz.

Pros:

It was a nice, clean vehicle, easy to rent and the staff was nice

Cons:

I brought the vehicle back one day late, which I let them know about ahead of time and they told me that I would just pay for extra day, but they also added on an additional 15.00 as a late fee plus taxes which made it 85 dollars for the extra day, not 60 which is what they told me.
