It took 5-minutes to pick up the car. Very good customer service at this location. I was very happy with my rental. I just wish the price of rental cars wasn’t so high. I’m looking forward to the day when the prices drops back to where they were pre-pandemic. Hopefully!

The drop off was easy and efficientI was told that they did not have my car I reserved, then they did have it. It had no gas, so I had to wait for it to be filled up. They didn’t say anything about a $200 deposit, and they kept changing the price I paid while I was there.

Wasn’t allowed to rent car because I have a NC drivers licensebetween polices and their needs! Due to The environment that we are in with this Virus I’d 2020 I can not get into the DMV to change my drivers license to VA! But If I were traveling and my car broke down and I need a rental ! This would not happen at this location!?

So I didn’t get to rent the car because of a rule about the drivers license not being VA! I was told that I could not rent !Polices are not standard across brand! And each location is given the power to stretch or blur the line between polices and their needs! Due to The environment that we are in with this Virus I’d 2020 I can not get into the DMV to change my drivers license to VA! But If I were traveling and my car broke down and I need a rental ! This would not happen at this location!?

I didn’t like anything, we reserved our car for 8am, and 10am we were still waiting for them to bring a car from another location. Not only did we miss our flight from DC they gave us a car that was like $28 more per day and expected me to pay the difference which I couldn’t afford. You guys ruined everything and even made us arrive a day late for our vacation. When you’re on dialysis traveling can be extremely hectic & you guys made it ten times more difficult for a single mother trying to go on a trip.Only book the cars that you have, we wasted so much time waiting on a economy sized car only to be hit with a 2 door Camero from another lot that we couldn’t afford. You seriously ruined my 1st solo vacation with my kids, nothing went as planned after we didn’t have a car to get to the airport. I seriously can’t think of any way it could’ve gotten worse. You made me look unreliable to the 2 people that were looking up to me for a good time.

If I were Kayak, I would stop selling Allianz insurance with Enterprise rentals, they don't accept Allainz, so you're basically making people throw money away. I didn't appreciate that very much. In fact, I've been spreading the word.

Yes, Christian was very helpful and the other tall white guys was really good at drop off. The older gentleman who dropped me off was very friendly too.This place was busy! Which is good for you, but dropping off the car was cumbersome. I didn’t really want to wait around and wasn’t sure who to talk to or what the procedure was. Also I reserved a full size car but they didn’t have one available so I had to get this little stinky car.

The car tire was unsafe. The tire leaked air overnight and was completely flat when I saw it in the morning. Thank goodness it did not blow out while I was driving. I called their Roadside Service but was on the phone waiting for a veeeerrrryy long time. I tried to change the tire myself but the lugnuts were on too tight. I had to ask a gentleman for help. So did not end up using the Roadside Service (which I likely would have been charged for). Avis charged me $200 for a new tire and did not inform me before doing this. There was absolutely no damage to the tire rim or car, I was not in any accident. I will write to Avis and complain and request the $200 back. Luckily, I HAVE PHOTOS and VIDEO of everything, which is what any car renter should be doing to record their experience.

I arrived to pickup my car only to find none were available. The agents onsite were not customer service oriented. DId not offer suggestions or help with finding another rental agency. I did however go to the Avis rental agency at theRichmond Airport and they were very professional and accommodating.

They should adopt automatic picking up keys without standing one hour in line.

Worst Customer Service EverI booked a luxury vehicle; they "didn't have any," and "upgraded" me without asking to a Nissan Pathfinder, which cost me much more in NYC parking garage fees, and much more in gas over my 1,000 mile trip, and was difficult to negotiate on crowded NYC streets. Plus,for the formal event I was attending, I wanted a luxury vehicle, not an SUV. When I explained all of that, the customer service person said "so you don't want a car?" And that was that. Uncaring and very unprofessional.

I was billed for fuel (twice) while having returned the car with full tank, and had that corrected after a long discussion on the phone and at the drop off. A person receiving the car at your IAD location was extremely rude and inconsiderate. He should not be working for Avis.

I rented a intermediate car and they gave me a compact. It didn’t have cruise control and the seat was very uncomfortable. I asked the guy about why I paid for an intermediate size car and got a compact and he lied and told me the car he rented me was intermediate.

No carHad to book off airport location as airport didn’t have cars. Uber’d to location and there were 5+ customers without cars- they said that vehicles were overbooked by at least 20 for the day and that they couldn’t do anything about it. The lack of effort to remedy the situation was terrible. Ended up going to a low rate provider that had cars available. Their car was terrible, but they actually had customer service.

wrong pickup locationI arrived at the Richmond airport, where I requested to pick up and drop off the car, to find out that the pick up location was 25 min away and they would not transfer the reservation. I had to take an Uber to the pick up location to get the car.

Looooong checkout!The people working with me were very nice. The car was nice and clean.I pre-paid, because the ad said that it would create a quicker pick up. When I got to Hertz, the gentleman was working with another person. He kept leaving the room to ask someone a question. You could hear several people in the next room talking and laughing, but no one came out to help the gentleman. When he finally got to me, he informed me that I would have to go to another location ( about 20 minutes away) to get the car I reserved.(Glad I wasn't dropped off the pick up the car!) The reservation was not transferred, so there was more waiting once I got to the next place. All in all, it took me 2+ hours to pick up the car. I found that rather frustrating, as you can imagine. I was VERY late arriving at my destination.

Employees don’t understand policyDid not get the carI knew they needed to run a credit check in order to use my debit card and I was fine with that because I have NO OPEN CREDIT. I was declined and the rep said I needed to call equifax to find out why. I asked her was equifax going to be able to explain Hertz’s criteria or just what is on my credit report and she said they know Hertz’s policy and why I was declined. (Which just sounds dumb anyway) I called equifax and he told he he had no idea why they declined me because I didn’t have anything bad on my report. All accounts were closed by consumer, paid as agreed. I don’t even have any inquiries! And on top of all that Hertz refuses to stop emailing me even though I’ve completely unsubscribed from their mailings many times online and over the phone. Hertz used to be so much better than this. I’m disappointed.

Bad situation made better by great site personnelOnce I got to the W. Broad St. location, the folks at the W. Broad Street location were fantastic and very helpful, especially Alphonso.I arrived that the Hertz desk at RIC and was informed that there was no reservation for me. A few clicks later , I was informed that my reservation was at W. Broad St. some 15 miles away. Unbelievable! Shame on me? Shame on Hertz, I don't remember, but a reservation 15 mile away was of NO USE to me. I had to take a taxi over to W Broad ST and a taxi back after the rental was over. A really good way to tick-off a customer.

never book pre-paid on line with HERTZAlexis-- the worker was pleasant and tried to helpI was sure I selected dropoff and pick up at the airport- but upon arrival I was told my pick up and drop off were at a location 20 minutes away. I had to take a taxi with my family and luggage to the other location. b/c it was prepaid-- I couldn't change my location. After spending $50 to reach the other rental office- they didn't have the care I requested and paid for. They could only give me a smaller Yaris for my family of 4 and all of our luggage. They system wouldn't let them upgrade us to a bigger car. We had to drive back to the airport to exchange cars driving the tiny car. We did get a standard sized care for my family at the airport. We had to return the car to the same location as we went initially and spend $ for transport back to the airport and were changed a $5 change fee as well. A total of $100 on top of our pre-paid rental car. It was a true hassle and nobody could help us. We heard over and over that the "system" wouldn't let the workers change anything and we were stuck. I don't plan on using HERTZ again.

Overall no big issues just a few small ones - vehicle had a slow leak in a tire, TPMS sensor would occasionally drop off, backup camera was flaky, distinct smell/odor. Personnel at Budget were nice.

The staff at the original budget rental we went to had poor customer service and was not friendly. After consulting many other rental car places, I was able to find one that could give us a car but it was not within the budget or the car that we requested.Staff friendliness, the car being ready and the correct rental that was requested, and better services all around.

Wrong size car providedThe roominess, condition, and readiness were great, I just didn’t receive the type of car I requested.My only real complaint is that I requested a Toyota Corolla (or similar) with the intention of getting a rental that was not a gas guzzler, since we would be traveling a long distance. Instead we received a Dodge Journey and had to fill up the tank multiple more times than we should have had to in a smaller car that I requested.

Car hire excess insurance in Mechanicsville

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 Mechanicsville 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 Mechanicsville.


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 Mechanicsville car rental.
