Pros:

Nothing - terrible experience. I hope Enterprise goes bankrupt with Hertz. They deserve it.

Cons:

I reserved a car, they didn't have it. I was told a car "might" be available later that afternoon and I should just wait to hear from them. I never heard back. I called later and they said the car was waiting for me to pick up and I would be charged regardless. Terrible, awful service. Whats the point of a reservation if they don't hold the car? Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode of the same occurrence. Lets hope rental companies all go bankrupt and a smart, lean tech company takes over like Uber / Lyft has done to the cab industry. These horrible companies deserve it.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The gentleman who helped check me in was professional and wanted to help me but still strong armed me into renting the car for 5 days even though I only needed it for 3 and there’s a drop box for this purpose. Furthermore, the car renter to me was old, dusty, and in need of service. Not at all what I was hoping for when renting a car on vacation for $300. Clinton at the Studio City location was very helpful and made the situation better and followed up with me fairly.

Cons:

A reservation line that answers phones after hours, clearer policies when booking as well as hours of operation at various locations, better vehicles available, better customer service...

Pros:

After booking and paying "in full" on the k a y a k website, I was told at the hertz location that because they were closed on Sundays and that was my return day, that I would have to pay for an additional day until they checked in the car on Monday.

Cons:

The rental agent was less than helpful, and when I requested a customer service #to file a formal complaint, he refused to provide it and told me to call the 3rd party site I booked with. K a y a k.

Cons:

1. The Manager Jimmy and rest of the Staff gave away my Prepaid Rental car. Sold it to someone else. This is theft. Apparently, both Hertz Corporate, all of its offices and specifically this particular Redondo Beach Location does this on permanent, regular basis. This comment is in most of the reviews. Second, this location does not care to clean the cars. Inside, outside dirty. Stains all over seats and floors. Reviews all say this and customers coming in and out of the store say this. Manager is being cheap and not spending the required labor hours and not hiring the necessary amount of employees to clean the cars. Also not doing required floors and seats shampoo between customers. The cleaning employees they do have are lazy and don't clean at all except half-vacuum. Employee Rodney engages in ongoing bate and switch behavior. You make an agreement with him and you arrive and he denies, refuses to honor, or significantly always to your detriment changes the agreement.
