Location is awesome. Simple pickup and drop off. Car was great and an upgrade.

"They do not apply Enterprise procedures in offering Customers the free Pickup and Dropoff service for their clients. I find that this Enterprise has a very condescending way in talking to its customers. When asked why the website and answering service offers pickup and/or delivery to customers they blamed it on being short staffed and this service is for only customers that reserve cars for many days. I was asked if I could take public transportation. The employees starting with the manager is very condescending."

Even though I had requested car be dropped off at private terminal, it had not been and I had to go to main terminal for car!Car had problems, low tire and engine light came on, had to exchange vehicle!

The 500 Oxford Street West are my boys, they always help and are great people to deal with. The car was good on gas mileage, really good.Instead of base model cars they could have higher quality packages for the cars. The prices could be lower, you know (Daily Rates) The cleanliness of the cars could better, one thing they almost always miss is thevfront windshield of the car, and that's usually on the inside. (Sorry boys)

Rental staff was very unfriendly and unprofessional (one example: just telling us the highest price for the biggest insurance package they had, unwilling to share details about the lower ones)

I rent a van to pick my family from Airport, van was a Pacifica Chrysler with only 8000 km on it, Car-washed and cleaned super nice. The whole process was very smooth including the price. I highly recommend Hertz.
10.0 ExcellentNov 26 2021
They are warm and professional in dealing with customers. I forgot my valuables in the car and I got them back intact after 3 days.
2.0 MediocreNov 22 2021
Consistently poor service. This visit, they didn't even check over the car of help us to find it, just gave the key. It was locked up in a back area and we had to go move the gate, move the car, then move the gate again to get out. The car pulled hard to one side and it was a mess. I only rent from them when there is NO other choice.
10.0 ExcellentSep 20 2021
Fast, efficient service. Easy after hours drop-off. Clean car. Reasonable price.
5.9 OkaySep 4 2021
We needed a minivan and we got a minivan. It got us to and from our destination in one piece, and had the cargo space we needed. The staff at the agency were very pleasant. However, the van wasn't ready at the booked time - it had no fuel so I waited 15 minutes while they fuelled it. And when I got it, it was filthy. Clearly it hadn't been washed in weeks. The inside was worse - sticky steering wheel, stained seats, spills on the carpet and trim. If there were other vehicles on the lot, and if I had time, I would have asked for a different van. Mechanically it also needed attention - the brake discs needed replacement, and there was an engine squeal that got worse, but more amusing, as we got closer to home. I paid $200 for the day - unfortunately due to the Labour Day weekend, prices for rentals everywhere were jacked up to gouge anyone who wanted to rent any class of vehicle. Normally I use a different car rental agency, but I'm surprised a big player like Hertz would want their name on a dirty, worn-out van that's three model years old with 80,000 km on the clock.
1.9 HorribleJul 25 2021
the car was disgusting dirty inside and out..not cleaned at all and with Covid we had to bring it home and disinfected....and also had to pay for 2 driver's...NO OTHER COMPANY does that ...will never rent from Hertz again..thanks

Staff was the best! Drove me to my house to get another credit card. Quick service!The ease of rental in regards to what is required. (Unable to use a Visa debit to purchase) A 360 of the vehicle is necessary so that I am not blamed for any damages. This was not done before my departure.
9.6 ExcellentMay 22 2019
Prices found online are subtotalled. My booking had shown that I would owe about $130 at pick up. But was not told about the additional taxes and coverage per day. This had made it go up to nearly $300 dollars for 4 days. I’m upset that I was told a different price than found online.

The Customer Service at the pick up and drop off were really friendly, helpful and on the ball. The price was as expected from my booking, and I was happy with $20/day for the car.The pick up location was changed via email less than 1 day from the pick up time (car was booked 5 days in advance). Every time I spoke with an Avis CSR on the phone, I was given different information as to why that is. The website is inconsistent with information about that as well, as I can still book at the 'closed' location. Very frustrating to be given different bits of information over and over again. It started with me calling in to confirm my reservation and costs (1 day after booking) and everything, including the pick up location, was confirmed. To the follow up calls about the change in location and the change in drop off location without notice. Definitely frustrating and still trying to work this out.

Mitsubishi suv is a poorly designed vehicle and having a chance to rent one, I surely would not buy one. Speedometer barely visible on sunny days. Multiple position gearshift is ridiculous!. Take some time to test drive and look for function fit and form

Easy to find the drop off location.There was nobody there when we dropped off, so we actually had an individual from another rental agency help answer some questions and show us where to drop the key off.

At first, the Alamo agent did not want to accept the price I had booked with Kayak. Tried to charge almost double! (The Alamo price, he said!) He was able to correct it. All good. Clean car, nice ride.

The drop off was a little weird. The guy wasn’t in his booth and was walking out the door and asked for my keys. I was super confused as he didn’t have an ID card etc. It took me a few minutes to realize he had a Hertz shirt on. I didn’t like the drop off.Car could have been cleaner and the drop off better, but other than that, it was fine.

Top tips for hiring a car in London

  • London, Ontario welcomes travelers with many interesting attractions and sights, including Storybook Gardens, various museums, and golfing clubs. Whether you’ve come to enjoy a golfing vacation or spend quality time with your family, the easiest way to maneuver through the city is on your four wheels. Rent a car for your time in London to do everything whenever you want to and create your own travel itinerary.
  • To enjoy a pleasant and smooth driving experience in London, adopt a defensive driving style, as some local drivers have the reputation of regarding street regulations rather as suggestions. Changing lanes without indicating beforehand or running a yellow light are common sights, and jaywalking by pedestrians is also a regular occurrence. Drive slowly and attentively and do not let the local drivers stress you into speeding.
  • Morning rush hours can mean delays and a honking crescendo, so try to avoid going on the roads between 6 and 8 am, and also between 4 and 7 pm if you want to avoid the worst traffic times in London. Winter can bring ice and sleet to the city, so make sure to slow down and drive extra carefully to avoid slipping.
  • Book your car hire in London at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
