8.0 ExcellentMay 25 2021
Cons: The car smell old
10.0 ExcellentMay 1 2021
Cons: Everything went well
2.0 MediocreMar 26 2021
Pros: Reservation & Confirmation was useless at check-in when I find there is no car available to rent.Cons: Actually have a car to rent before confirmation of my reservation!
5.2 OkayOct 22 2020
Pros: Drop off was difficult and unclear. There was only a small sign saying that budget was closed and to return car to avis. this should have been told to me at the time of pickup to avoid complications catching my flightCons: they should have disclosed that they would not be "open" during my return hours and how to return the vehicle to prevent issues when trying to catch my flight after spending 30 minutes driving around the rental area and airport trying to figure it out for myself
9.6 ExcellentSep 9 2020
Pros: The gal that escorted us to our vehicle was excellent. Made a nice upgrade gesture that significantly enhanced our trip.Cons: I should have been told during my order placement that u were offering a 3rd party insurance company where u would have required me to use my deductible...then “I” would have to get reimbursed from the insurance company. Sneaky!
2.0 MediocreAug 23 2020
Pros: Never picked upCons: Should Have been notified that I needed to use my credit card at least a week before I had to pick up. I won’t be using enterprise ever again
9.6 ExcellentAug 3 2020
Pros: The renting process at both airports and the car were great.Cons: The website and confirmation. Other than going into the Kayak System, I had no email confirmation about my rental. So I was nervous that the reservation did not truly exist. It did, but without some confirmation, it was difficult. I would also like it if there were notifications sent the day before confirming the reservation and what to expect.
2.0 MediocreJul 27 2020
Pros: Nothing.Cons: I rented a convertible to drive away from my wedding to our reception. They called me 10 minutes before pickup and said “whoever rented the convertible didn’t bring it back last night.” Upon calling them a second time and speaking to another representative, he informed me they never have convertibles, so whoever spoke to me the first time lied to me. Then he told me they couldn’t help me find the convertible at another local Enterprise and that they wouldn’t honor my Kayak prices. I spent over an hour ON MY WEDDING DAY on hold and talking to various clueless, helpless, hand-wringing local and corporate Enterprise employees. Long story short, we had to rent a convertible from Alamo and they were *AWESOME*, but it ended up being triple the price. Stay away from Enterprise. They’re hapless.
7.2 GoodJul 22 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful and check in was super speedy. Vehicle was very clean and well outfitted.Cons: Due to Covid the rental offices of a number of rental agencies had been combined to a central location, a fact that was not relayed to myself or many renters as there was lots of confusion with folks picking up and dropping off vehicles. People should be advised to call their rental provider for updated information on new operating system.
9.2 ExcellentJul 5 2020
Cons: Inside of the car cleaner, dog hair all over

4.0 OkayMay 26 2021
Pros: Staff were patient and pleasant.Cons: The car was absolutely filthy inside and out. Apparently they did not have the staff to clean it. The interior was so bad I cleaned it myself that afternoon - smell, everything was covered in accumulated grime; the steering wheel was actually sticky (cloths used to clean came out black). Rented a premium model and it was at least 3/4 years old with dents and scratches. Also it was the lowest type of model in that category. Overall I was very disappointed with Hertz as it should be a premium rental agency. Will not use again as have had far better experience with ‘lower tier’ rental agencies
4.0 OkayMay 18 2021
Pros: Not enough staff to take care of the amount of customers. Long wait when we already had a reservation. Exterior of the car already had damage and was very dirty.Cons: Cleanliness of the exterior; not having the urg to take a pic of every little scratch damage on the car.
6.0 GoodMay 14 2021
Pros: Vehicles were in great condition and staff at final destination finally made our rental satisfactory but getting there with three other rental locations was miserable!Cons: Went to airport location to rent vehicles (2 mini vans - we had 4 kids under 5 who had just flown for 4 hours) - told our rental was at a different location and would have to go back to airport and take a cab there, even though it was just 5 minutes away. Shuttle driver who was taking us back to airport told us that there had not been taxi’s at Raleigh/Durham airport for about 2 years - we would have take a Lyft. Lyft got there and took us to booked location, only to find it had been closed for over a year...it was a body shop, and the very helpful people there told us this happens all the time and that there were phone numbers listed on their now closed office door and we would have to call one of them. Called first one and they would be there in 30 minutes (30 minutes back to their shop to get cars so another hour out of our day). Called second one - said they were closer but only had one mini van. Third location was very rude, laughed and said they were not interested in helping us and to call the first location. Finally got picked up to get to rental location. Great help there - asked if these Hertz locations were independently owned (franchises) and was told no - Hertz owns them all. Asked if the location we booked through was closed why the airport location couldn’t help us and was told they could have. Great service at this rental location, she deducted our Lyft fee and got us on the road in about an hour. If it weren’t for the rental location we finally ended up at, this would have been a total disaster and Hertz would never receive my business again. KAYAK...you need to remove our initial rental location from your list of rental locations.
2.0 MediocreMay 11 2021
Pros: I requested an airport car rental, they booked my car for an off-airport location (30 mins away). I would be required to take a $60 taxi (each way) to the alternate location which would not even be open for another 2 hours (which was after the reservation time was booked for). I sat on the phone for almost 2 hours trying to get it corrected. No one was of any assistance, they just kept finger pointing at each other (Hertz & Priceline). Finally someone said they could fix it and came back to let me know that they would simply need to cancel my original reservation and just rebook a new one. That sounded reasonable, until she came back and said that my $160 reservation would now be $589!!Cons: EVERYTHING!! Be very careful when booking with hertz, they are scam artists. You may be booked off-airport without your knowledge and there is nothing on your confirmation that may even slightly indicate that.
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
Cons: The Hertz rental car location was closed on Saturday which left us in Raleigh with no means of transportation. Kayak should NOT advertise car rental availability at closed locations. We arrived on the date and time that was on the reservation. Please do your due diligence when offering availibility of cars that do not exist. If my cc is charged I will be reporting this as fraud. By the way we had our 82 year old mother with us which added to the extreme hardship of this situation. Also your questionnaire would not allow me to click on the choices.
4.0 OkayMay 10 2021
Pros: Sales rep was helpful.Cons: The wrong address was given to us in email for our pick up. Which resulted in a very long, painful driving around looking for hertz dealership and a bigger bill from my Uber.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2021
Pros: One of the managers was nice post horible experience.Cons: Customer service, customer service order, lobby organization, and car cleanliness.
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
Cons: The rental was ready when I arrived. They had to clean out the van and I was 1 hour late for leaving for my trip. In addition. The van had not been washed. There was bugs, bird poop and a lot of dust. Extremely disappointed.will not rent from the location again.
10.0 ExcellentApr 17 2021
Pros: The manager was extremely helpful and accommodating due to us not being notified that the location we were supposed to pick our car at had closed permanently without us being notified.Cons: Hertz’s phone customer service wasn’t very good. They basically said they couldn’t help us in making sure our reservation was honored. They wanted to cancel our reservation and charge us $1000 more to rent a car.
6.0 GoodApr 12 2021
Cons: Better service, clean better the cars and have son drops at the airport or pick up at the airport

10.0 ExcellentJun 5 2021
Pros: Yes! The car was a Toyota Corollaan excellent vehicle, exceptionally clean, comfortable and great mileageCons: I picked up the car early and for three hours extra I was charged an extra day. If I had known I would have taken my ride to lunch and saved $50.
8.0 ExcellentMay 30 2021
Pros: The car was new so that was nice.Cons: Pickup and drop off in a shopping mall was not ideal. And the car had clearly not been cleaned before we received it.
10.0 ExcellentMay 18 2021
Pros: Customer service was really friendly
2.0 MediocreMay 15 2021
Pros: Cancellation of rental was very easy and simple. The customer service representative was very nice and helpful and apologized for the situation.Cons: We scheduled our rental pick-up for 7pm. We didn’t know that the pick-up location closed at 7pm. We were unable to receive our rental. If closing time is at 7pm, then the last rental for the evening needs to be at 6:30pm.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Pros: NothingCons: They could have left a voicemail saying they didn't have any cars available.
8.0 ExcellentDec 29 2020
Pros: Considering the conditions of COVID, the young lady was very helpful and checked me in quickly and when I returned the car the same girl waited on me again and made my car return and easy transitionCons: The location in the mall is horrible, bad parking and hard to find. I drove around the mall twice before I was able to find the location of Budget. Also when I got in the car, it was clean, however the car had a strong marijuana odor. I did report this to the clerk at the counter, she made note of it. But because of the timing and the lack of cars available I went ahead and took the car anyhow. But it was unpleasant to drive a car with that odor when you are a non user and a non smoker.
6.8 GoodJul 7 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful and the process was simpleCons: More locations with slightly later drop off hours
2.8 MediocreMar 21 2019
Pros: The car got me from point A to point B comfortably.Cons: The car didn't have rims and was dirty when I picked it up. No attendant at pickup location, waited for 30 minutes before the attendant arrived. Attendant at drop off had me stand outside in the rain while he remarked about the condition of the car.
4.4 OkayDec 9 2018
Not impressedCons: The check in process was awful and took 45 minutes. The mans clmpjter was down so he spent 15 mins trying to reboot, then had to do everything manually. Then the only behicle he has was a pickup truck when I needed an economy vehicle. The truck was dented and had stains/crumbs all over the inside.
10.0 ExcellentOct 31 2018
Lisa SPros: Although the location was hard to find, the pick up process was painless, it was like a scavenger hunt.Cons: That the location was hard to b yind

2.0 MediocreJun 1 2021
Pros: One manager seemed helpfulCons: Priceline booked us at an off-site location which was closed when we landed. Avis and Priceline both blamed each other when a $50 no-show fee was assessed and neither would take responsibility for assessing or removing it. Priceline did the same thing on another future rental so we cancelled it. We will no longer use Kayak for rental cars.
2.0 MediocreMar 28 2021
Cons: The day before the reservation, I got a call informing me that there were no cars available and they they would be cancelling my reservation. No alternate options were provided.
8.0 ExcellentDec 23 2020
Pros: Both gals who helped me with pick up and then drop off were super.Cons: The pick up at the Raleigh NC mall 5 days before Christmas was very chaotic. I couldn't find the car once I had the keys, and the woman working was all alone so couldn't leave the desk inside the mall to help me find it. That was very time consuming and took much longer than it should have. Having dedicated and labeled Avis spots in the mall parking lot are a necessity, especially if Avis isn't going to hire extra help. She had to leave her post and help me find the car. She didn't know where it was either in the chaos of a mall parking lot before Christmas.
9.2 ExcellentDec 9 2019
Pros: Great car selectionCons: Mall location had a lot of traffic to navigate though. Not sure how this could be improved.
6.4 GoodJul 22 2019
Pros: I like how Avis stretched the definition of a "midsize" booking to include a Nissan Sentra. That's very creative.Cons: Leave lots of extra time to drop a car at the Wilmington (NC) airport. You have to find a parking space, unload your belongings, walk into the airport, and wait at the rental counter. And all of that counts against your return time. If that makes you "late" to return your car, it's an extra $30-50.
5.6 OkayMar 26 2018
Dirty inside & outPros: No-hassel renting. Quick rental process, pickup, & dropoff.Cons: Car was filthy. Didn't have time to request a different car so I eventually vacuumed car out myself. Outside was dirty as if it had been driven in a little bit of snow. Called avis 800 # to complained and only offered $20 off future rental.
3.6 MediocreJan 9 2018
Filthy CarCons: Dirtiest rental car I've ever seen. Interior and exterior were dirty.
2.4 MediocreSep 3 2017
Least attentative desk personnelCons: The Avis representative in Raleigh was one of the worst experiences I've had. He literally left the desk and I didn't know what to do with the keys or car or exactly where to leave them. They were not helpful at all on where to park the car. They really did not do anything at all and I did not get any confirmation that the car with properly taken care of from the Avis Staff in Raleigh
2.0 MediocreOct 21 2016
No Cars!!!Pros: Received a text when I landed at RDU that they had no cars for my reservation!!! I was left to find another car on my own!!!! Never again would I consider Avis!
