Staff was friendly but told me at the last minute to go elsewhere because they did not have the vehicle i reserved.They could have found the vehicle i had requested and told me where to go. Offered an upgrade on an available vehicle as opposed to a downgrade. Possibly vouchers or discount for next rental?

Best service I've ever hadThe service couldn't be better. They did everything they could to make me happy--a completely new experience when renting a car. It was also quick in and out. Alexa and the manager (didn't get his name) were great--thank you!

Staff was nice. They just didn’t have any cars when we got there. Said it would be 3 hours or I could upgrade. We had planned on have a full size. I had to upgrade to an suv that cost $100 more then plan on.Just having a a car for me or budget making up the difference.

Reserved for convertible- was told none was available. This is I spite of reserving it several months in advance. No attempt to try to find another vehicle in surrounding areas. Asked to call central reservation number for budget - they were no help at all. Did not even offer to reduce rates as promised vehicle was not available. Very poor service.

Got the keys right away, was able to drop the car off after hours.After getting the keys, was told to remove the sunpass from windshield since I had my own and didn’t want the additional charges. I couldn’t remove it- no one was around to help. I saw a man that worked there and asked for help, then yelled for help but he ignored me and kept walking. Also, if you leave your vehicle there you have to park it across the street.... so walking across 6 lanes of fast moving traffic is a little unsettling.

The auto was clean and economicalWe were informed that we could pick up the rental at the st. Pertersburg/Clearwater airport. At the Budget counter, we were informed that at the car had to be picked up at the Budget office 16 miles away in city. We wasted a couple of hours scrambling to find transportation in an unfamiliar city. The agent at the city Budget office was rude and inconsiderate The whole experience was awful. We will not use Budget to rent an auto again.

Did not have a car for usThe price...I guessWe reserved a van for our family vacation far in advance. When I arrived on the morning g of the reservation, I was informed there were no vehicles. They didn’t bother to call me so I could make other arrangements. It was right after a holiday weekend so we couldn’t find any other vehicles and had to take multiple cars on our trip. Very disappointed.

Confused by "customer" service?The value deal for the vehicle was great. My fiancé and I enjoyed the infinity Q50 very much. The drop off location at Tampa airport was easy to find, easy to navigate to as well as through. The drop off was very smooth and user friendly.They didn't have the vehicle at the pick up location. We made the reservation approximately 35 days ahead of the travel date. Because the price was incredibly lower at an off site location (not at Tampa airport) we decided to pick up from a location close to our destination. We arrived and the vehicle was NOT there. The rep from budget stated that they had already called and that the vehicle might arrive later in the afternoon. It was already 2:00 pm and the office closed at 6;00. The rep put us in an SUV (4 runner) and stated that they would call when the vehicle arrived. We didn't hear anything from the company. The next day several phone calls were placed to the largo budget location and the owner of that location stated that he had called several times and several people (district GM, coorporatre people, even the airport office) to get the vehicle to his location for us. He was unsuccessful in his attempts. I called customer service and the only answer that they gave me was that they would call the largo location and put pressure on the owner. I explained that this had been going on all day and that the owner didn't have the car and that the owner of that location has made several attempts to get a vehicle for us; all of the attempts were unsuccessful and to be honest, the customer services reps (Edward and Robert were useless). At 7:30 that night My fiancé and I drop the 35 miles to Tampa airport to get the vehicle. We had to wait due to traffic going into Tampa. Once there we were told that they might not have the luxury vehicle on site. Amazingly, they pulled the vehicle from the Avis side and we left with the vehicle that we had requested. Bottom line- nice car, easy convenient drop off, customer service was POOR, having to travel 38 miles to get the vehicle was an unexpected hassle and quite frankly obsurd. We would have rented it from the airport but it would have cost an additional $300.00 -$500.00 dollars. Sorry budget, you won't get us as a returning customer.

Pickup experience was a nightmare and I was placed into a dirty car.Speed at checkout. They should have cleaned the car... esp during Covid. They should have placed me into a different car if they didn’t have time to clean the car they put me into. I also could not get ahold of customer service for the life of me. Awful experience.
2.0 MediocreApr 11 2021
Drop off at SFB was easy. We had to change our drop-off location mid-trip and this was easy to do over the phone using the “rental extension” phone number on our initial receipt.Was traveling with an IL driver’s license that had its expiration date extended 6 months by the state of IL due to Covid-19. No issues with TSA in 3 different airports. No issues anywhere except Hertz in St. Petersburg where the store manager would not allow me to pick up the car. In the state of FL, Hertz does not have good options for dealing with toll roads. You can either pay an exorbitant amount of money up-front (for our rental period something like $70, way more than the amount we would pay in tolls), or you can get charged afterwards for the tolls you use + a $10 administrative fee for each. There are several toll roads where you can only “pay by plate” or transponder and there is no option for paying with cash, so if you don’t know the area and your navigation takes you on one of these roads, Hertz has you over a barrel.

Made appointment online for same day rental and went to pick up and there's none available. I live in area and saw vans/cars there never move. Also never received a call when one came available.
10.0 ExcellentJan 27 2021
The staff was very friendly and pickup and dropoff were very easy!The Hertz office location needs better signage, including directional signage. It is in the back of a large car dealership and repair facility, and while there is a small Hertz sign under the dealership sign once you get in the parking lot you have no idea how to find it. I had to go into the dealership and ask and I still drive around for several minutes before I found it.

The Hertz rental at that location no longer exists. I took an Uber to and from the location from my home, $18. I waited outside on hold for over 20 minutes while an agent tried to find another location with a car. No such luck. My Christmas plans were ruined.Update your website to reflect accuracy.

We didn’t even get to pick up the rental car and were left scrounging for a car to fit 7 at the last minute. We visited the location on the Tuesday before pick up to insure it’ll be a smooth pickup because the vehicle was paid with my credit card but was registered under my boyfriends name. They guy working at Hertz at that time said it would be no problem, I did not need to be present, my boyfriend just needed to fill out a couple of papers on the day of pick up and all set to go. Well Saturday comes around and my boyfriend goes to pick up the car with my credit card in hand just in case they ask for it, and they wouldn’t allow him to pick up the car without me present. The guy who was there Tuesday was denying the fact we were ever there or ever even spoke to him. They wanted me to meet my boyfriend at Hertz, meanwhile I was at work for a 12 hr shift as a cardiac stroke nurse, hence the reason my boyfriend was registered to pick it up. Because I couldn’t make it there, the only option was for my boyfriend to redo the reservation under his name and pay with his card, however, Hertz wouldn’t price match and it would’ve been $250 more than we were paying. Overall terrible experience. If there policy is that the payment and the registration need to be under the same name, then they shouldn’t allow people to book it otherwise. And they definitely shouldn’t have there employees say it would be no issue when we checked ahead of time that it would be a smooth process.

I was there on time they don’t have any vehicle to give me told me to pickup vehicle from Tampa airport but in the airport they not accepted my reservation. It was a bad experience and I had to reserve another car at airport and they charged more than previous reservation. It was a bad experience. Hopefully I get my $22 payed upfront at the reservation from KAYAK. Thanks,

The car was a beautiful brand new 2020 model. The interior was sparkling clean and the exterior only had a few chipped paint spots. The car drove smoothly and fit my wife and I’s need.The staff at the pickup location was rude. Was not friendly and could’ve made the process of checking in for the car for enjoyable and less stressful.

Worst experience with a rental company I have ever had. Was not able to retrieve my rental car because even though I had a reservation they decided to give my car away. Missed my best friends wedding because surrounding car rental companies were too expensive to buy the day of. Could have figured out a different option had I known my reservation would not be honored.Worst customer service.

Car hire excess insurance in Seminole

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 Seminole 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 Seminole.

Deductible

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 Seminole car rental.
