The rental agent was extremely rude and disrespectful, and almost unhelpful. She should not be customer facing if she intends to treat customers poorly.

Cons:

Transparency! The car I was promised was not what I got including the option. The car smelled of smoke and clearly the previous renter had animals. The car had dints and the appearance was very subpar. I was embarrassed to even drive it. It set in my garage the whole weekend. I even returned it on Sunday. I felt I was treated like a second class citizen and I all I got was sorry but it is what it is. The only satisfaction I got from this rental was returning it early!! I would never recommend Hertz to my friends and I would never rent from Hertz every again!!

Cons:

Had to wait an hour to pick it up. It wasn't ready. Then, when they finally brought it out, it was filthy on the outside. The tire pressures were all wrong and there were many dents and dings on the exterior, including a stone chip on the windshield.

Pros:

Staff was friendly to get an upgrade. All downhill from there!

Cons:

Upgraded car smelled like smoke. Chip in window. Windows were dirty and literally could not see out of rear view mirror. Had to clean manually. Gas was 3/4 filled!! Worst rental experience ever!!!

KAYAK

Pros:

Great price for one day rental. Easy pick-up location however this location is closed on the day we had scheduled turn in of our vehicle. We asked for a mini-van. Location only had a full size SUV, so we got a free upgrade.

Cons:

Costco website advertises which locations are open for both pick-up and return, so it is easier to pick convenient locations. Our pick-up location being closed Sundays, gave only option to not suffer additional day charge as drop off at the airport. We made this work, but it would have been nice to know this before we committed to this deal. Kayak could do better in this regard. Upgrade was nice however if I'd been in need of a mini-van due to access restrictions, they did not have my requested option unless I drove to another location.

It was not explained that I had to have the car back at an exact time or would be charged more, even an hour over.

They called and cancelled our reservation because the car was unavailable. Said it wasn’t their fault and happens often when booking via 3rd parties.

Pros:

Pick up was way too slow. But the drop off process was awesome. Just drop the key in the box and head to airport.

Cons:

The pickup at the pleasanton place was slow. Time is money. Sitting around waiting for folks to come and go to figure out what is going on....only to rent you the car that has been sitting on the lot for the whole time shows the need for process improvement at some locations.

The car was dinged up significantly and noisy for a hybrid. It did not handle well. In the online reservation process I thought I was buying full coverage from the rental company but it was fromi a third party...that was confusing and not what I wanted. I didn't appreciate that. I would have had to pay more for the rental car coverage. The onsite staff. was very nice and professional . The only good part of this experience. .
