Cons: I'm unsure about the final charges. They may be spot on but this survey comes early and I haven't had a chance to validate. They may be accurate--but I'm uncertain.

Pros: Quick counter service, easy to find vehicle, quick exit procedure from the lot. Clean vehicle, ran great, was just what I needed to guide a bunch of guests around town!
Cons: It's annoying that the counter staff always try to upsell you on stuff you don't want or need. Hard to tell if it's because I'm a woman, or if it's standard procedure. This is true for my experiences across all the rental services I've used, though, so it's not just Hertz. Still can't tell if it's because I'm a woman, though.

Charge $13.00 per day for extra driver!
Cons: This extra charge is ridiculous. $13/day for an extra driver? How is this justified? I'm paying the insurance-why should Hertz have to charge me if I want my wife to drive at times? Cancelled rental - went to Enterprise where they don't have an extra driver fee for your spouse.

Worst car rental experience ever
Pros: Car was decent, eventually paid less than expected due to earlier return, helpful security guard at the exit from rental facility (unlike Hertz employees).
Cons: Kayak booking was in the system, but somehow Hertz wanted to charge me 2x more than Kayak price. Employees at Hertz Gold Plus Rewards checkin were unpleasant and incredibly incompetent, to the point of not being able to spell correctly "Road" in my address. Hertz wanted to charge 9.99USD / gallon when I forgot to refuel - so had to return to a nearby gas station where petrol costs 2USD/gallon.

Good Car, Bad Company
Pros: Car was very clean; no issues with the car itself. Drop-off was easy, but didn't allow the opportunity to have any questions answered.
Cons: I ended up being charged almost double what I was quoted, even after turning in my car a day earlier than I was originally scheduled, and I still have no idea why. I wasn't able to ask any questions at drop-off, and when picking up the car they wouldn't let me talk to someone in-person, but rather through a video chat with someone off-site which was a bit awkward, at times difficult to understand, and didn't allow me to ask all the questions I had.

Very easy and straightforward
Pros: Hourly rentals Easy to extend Variety of car selection
Cons: The employee charged me more than the deal I got on Kayak.com although I booked the car 10 minutes before picking it up. And when I told him about it, he said that they are free to change it to whatever they like and that I agreed on that when I signed the deal online (the fine print) I found that to be disturbing!!! He only added few dollars and I was in a hurry so I didn't argue.

fee was much more then expected
Pros: The Airport clerk was pleasant and efficient at 6 AM
Cons: Arrived at the desk after hours due to plane delay and slept for a few hours in the airport... when the clerk arrived he mentioned that Hertz honored Dollar reservations so I could have made it to the hotel that night! Emailed the bill due to having to rush to catch a plane- way more money then I expected... I expected a fee for gas that I did not prepay but not at over 10 bucks a gallon! email asking about the fee bounced back when I saw it this morning....

Pros: The people were really nice, drop off was easy.

Car was fine - when I finally got it.
Pros: Nice, new chevy SUV, very clean and comfortable.
Cons: I suggest Avis review their check-in procedure which was painfully slow with many things to be entered, coworkers to be consulted and two phone calls in the middle of it. Also took 20 minutes to actually produce the car after rental procedure itself. As long as they have been doing this, I'd think things would be more streamlined.

Great value
Pros: The price was fantastic. That same rental would have been 4 times the price we paid if we had not reserved the car in advance thru Kayak. Also the agent at Avis upgraded us from economy to a SUV for only an additional 6.00 per day charge. I will definitely use Kayak again for my next car rental.

Web booking very misleading
Pros: Checking and out was very quick
Cons: When booking I booked the 'special' and it had a picture of a Nissan crossover. When checking in I was told I booked a sub-compact. So rather than drive a sardine can I did opt for a larger car. Then all these add on fees appeared. Insurance something, platinum road side assistance, etc. I'll be calling to get those reversed. Thrifty wasn't really thrifty at all.

Cons: I booked this car because of the special on kayak and also because of the size that it would hold. It appeared to be a reasonable deal. When I went to pick up the car I was told by the thrifty agent that it was a very small car for "five small people and five small bags" It seems to me that the size of people and the size of bags should be a standardized unit to compare deals objectively. I was then up charged greatly for a car that would hold my luggage. My plan was to have it for 10 days. I returned it in two and was charged extra for ending the lease early, As I was moving from the UK to the US I felt held hostage by questionable business practice. I felt exhausted from long travel and cheated and that I had no options at the time. It would benefit you to know that I have since booked two other rental cars and I have not used thrifty or kayak.

Almost Hassle Free Rental
Pros: The car was clean inside and had been washed on the outside. Inside the car rental, the procedure followed protocol and progressed relatively quickly. There was no hard sell on the need for their insurance. I especially liked that I could pick my own car within the prescribed row of automobiles.
Cons: I presented the small scratches and tiny pits on the car that took me 30 minutes to inspect and catalog. The check-out representative said, "Oh, don't worry about those" as she walked around the car in 30 seconds. I demanded that my findings be documented on the contract. She did so at my insistence. She was not rude at all. Still, I know that if it is not written down, there is no legal credibility to "my word" when established corroboration is needed.

Cons: The pickup and drop off at the airport could have been better explained. Very hard to do when you didn't fly into the airport. No receipt at the end either or anyone else looking at the car to make sure it was all ok still.

Worst car rental of my life.
Pros: The car was clean, although bigger than we wanted, got so so mileage, and seats were not that comfortable.
Cons: The wait at checkout was over 30 minutes. I got a ticket because the car had expired plates. When I had to extend the rental due to airline issues, the automated system couldn't extend it, the first, second and third actual persons couldn't do it, and the fourth only did after calling someone else. This also took more than 30 minutes. They are trying to charge me more than $300 for the extra day, which is more than the original 5 day rental.
