Very easy drop off. Good price.We had made a reservation for pick up at the airport, but when we got there the reservation has been changed to a location outside the airport. We ended up having to pay more to get the car at the airport.

It started with a rentalI loved everything about the experience. I can in for an intermediate SUV, but I was a signed a full size. The price didn't change and the price was excellent. Everyone at the center was friendly and amicable. I was thrown off by the greetings from the employees that weren't even helping me. Those little details make for an excellent experience. The over all rental experience was great and I'll definitely rent with them again.There was very little that I didn't like from this experience.

Refused car and went somewhere elseI made a special trip to the office ahead of my trip to verify that they could supply me with a small car. I was assured multiple times that they could & even saw a car in the parking lot to indicate the size required. On the day of my trip, I was presented with a mid size sedan and I was almost in tears. I refused the car, made a new reservation, got a ride to Hertz at the airport, and left with a Ford Focus, over 2 hours late for my trip.

Good and Not So GoodOur car wasn't ready so they offered a free upgrade, fast service, no hard sale on extras. The only (2) problems we had was the guy helping us wasn't very knowledgeable about credit card issues and what he told us about how much gas we had wasn't what we had. When we returned the car it was the same amount as when we left but the guy said we were short on gas and charged us extra. Not to happy about that!!! Double play!!!

I had the worst possible experience. Hertz, Priceline, and Kayak allowed me to book a car for pickup at noon. I arrived at the Hertz location and was told it closed at noon, so they would not give me my car. I received no communication of this. What a horrible experience.Not being given the option to pick up a car at noon, if the office is not open at noon.

4.4 OkayOct 17 2020
The value was good. The vehicle was comfortable (a Dodge mini-van).We had to wait for over 1.5 hours to pick up the vehicle, as the car was not clean when we arrived for pickup. They supposedly had to wash it and clean out the inside. The outside was done with what looked like a muddy rag.

Staff was amazing. In and out super quick, no issues.Great rental experience- not much could have been improved.
2.8 MediocreJun 20 2020
Absolutely nothing, they left me stranded with no van and I had to buy a last minute one way ticket.The staff could have given a damn, lifted a finger and helped me instead of not caring one bit. It's no wonder hertz is going bankrupt.
2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2020
NothingI've made reservation for noon time, I've showed up at 12:15 and nobody was there, apparently they close at 12, but there was no clear mention of it during reservation steps. I rented a vehicle from Enterprise and lost an hour because of it.
5.2 OkayDec 6 2019
Manager did plan for a car of the class (luxury) that is reserved and pre-paid. However, car was to be brought from another location and did not make it in time. No luxury fur me! He did his best to deal with it- but I did not get the car I reserved, and was there fir an hour! No kine... just took so long to deal with because the driver /transport was missing, should have been back and did not answer several calls from manager. Big foul up. Do not appreciate it. Booked luxury class for a reason... an suv is not an upgrade from luxury.

No hidden or additional costs.It would be great to have the option for a pickup and drop off service!
2.0 MediocreAug 12 2019
nothing, i had the trip set to be at the airport hertz for obvious reasons and somehow it got changed to the Stevens creek one for whatever reason; ok its 20 min away and i will have to pay 40$ in Lyft rates to get there and back which adds to cost and is an inconvenience but fine it was a decentrate, until i got there and get hit in the face with a 260 additional cost?! excuse me i only went with Hertz because of the 220 rental "total" cost and then you fee me for being 21? an additional 110% outrageous and a rip off. i was taken advantage and on top of that given a garbage ecosport instea

Staff was inept and inexperienced to handle a simple situation. We liked the car model.The car was not cleaned at all. Surprising they rented out without cleaning and sanitizing in COVID times. After bringing this issue to the agent, he said he could not help it. I was mad but had no option but to take it. Myself and two of my family members cleaned the car inside out for two hours before starting the trip. Horrible experience. Won’t rent from Avis again.

Rude staff and charges one way feeDid not like anythingThe associate was rude and acted like it was my fault that I was being charges one way fee. Despite of the fact that I made a call before I went to return the car and that I was provided a case number, he refused to acknowledge it. He LITERELLY threw the car key and the papers with all the information at me saying that he will not close up the contract until I pay the amount I was required. I was promised a refund in 2 days. That was on 12th of May, no refund, blocked international bank account, daily overdraft fees and terrible customer service since then. Rented the car with Avis now, and never again. If I don't see my refund soon, lawsuit is the last option.
7.6 GoodJan 31 2017
Good value for the price we paid. The other car companies were 2x the price.No overnight dropoff at this location. Was not told the insurance i bought was not though Avis directly. It was through a 3rd party.

Called me a day before my travel that they do not have cars and are not able to provide me car. I had booked 2 months ago to avoid such thing. At least they called me so leaving with 1 star.

Pickup was not at expected location. Staff was unprofessional, dishonest, and unpleasant. Rental terms were confusing and misleading. I ended up paying $175 more than expected.
2.0 MediocreFeb 25 2021
I went to pick up my car and the location was closed. I spent $40 on Uber ans had to scramble to find another rental. Spent three days prior calling customer service to confirm but no one would answer. Hours of location should be detailed in the confirmation email.

They cancelled my reaervation 2 hours before pick up time. Staff was rude and unhelpful.
2.8 MediocreMay 17 2018
When I rented the car, my confirmation said that pick up was at the airport location in San Jose. When I arrived at that location the employee said it was not that location and if I wanted to rent from them it would be an additional 30% in taxes because it was at the airport. At this point I was not about to travel all over San Jose to try to locate the car because I assumed that my confirmation would have correct information. I was traveling there to move my daughter out of her college dorm room. She has finals this week so there was little time to see her to pack up her belongings so I had no choice but to pay the additional funds. Also, on the site, there was an option for rental insurance. Normally I don't buy this but because I was with someone outside my family I thought it may not be a bad idea if both of us were going to drive the vehicle. When I got to the Budget desk he had no record of that and said it was an outside vendor that I purchased insurance from. Your site is very deceiving. I will not use Kayak or Budget again after this.

Car hire excess insurance in Los Gatos

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Los Gatos car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Los Gatos.


Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Los Gatos car rental.
