Cons:

The pickup location I was issued was a branch that had been closed down. No-one contacted to update me with the new pickup location. I found out when I arrived at the closed branch and saw the posted sign. They did not want to refund my additional Uber ride to the new location

Pros:

The car was clean on the inside and they made sure my phone was connected via Bluetooth before I left. Drop off was easy.

Cons:

They rented the car I reserved to someone else. They only had larger cars, small SUV, available. I needed the gas mileage for an 800 mile trip to help take car of my dad after a week in the hospital and 3 surgeries. I had even called the facility directly to make sure I could get on the road asap. Very frustrating. Why make a reservation?! As I dropped off the vehicle, someone else was being told they only had small SUV's left, do they even have smaller cars?

Pros:

We are treated with courtesy and respect and all needs were met. They made every effort to match up the right car with us and are receptive to suggestions of how to do better. There was a courtesy car to drive us home and that man was excellent .

Cons:

They were short handed on the weekend (Sat.) and the line was ten deep inside and outside early morning for pickup. I also didn't like that the man handing over the keys outside pushed us for insurance purchase when I hadn't done it on my online reservation.

Everything went perfect with my car rental the entire trip. The only problem that leaves a sour taste in my mouth, which is making me leave a less than positive review, is that when I went to pick up the car I was charged a “Young Driver Fee.” While I am under 25, I had previously confirmed over the phone with an employee at the store that presenting my AAA membership card would wave the young driver fee. However when I land in Los Angeles to pick up my car, I am charged practically double what I expected. The employee at the counter informed me that because I “did not book the rental through AAA,” I would not qualify for the discount. Very unprofessional. My family has used Hertz for all of our vacations growing up, and now that I am taking my own trips I felt comfortable going with a company I knew. After this I may reconsider my loyalties.

KAYAK

Pros:

I search the rental car at LAX airport, search results came cheap , I booked with comments that kayak has agreement with Hertz rental car. I paid on line with prepayment. When appear at LAX Hertz it appears that your prepaid option was 40 miles away from the Airport. I ended paying $140 more apart from what I prepaid $240 . So not a good experience, I will advise never opt for Prepaid option , you loose flexibility with no option and end up paying more. Prepaid option has the penalty associated, for sake of $20 customers end up paying more

Cons:

Not a good search place

Pros:

hertz did a great job in place and with an outstanding attitude

Cons:

Kayak got me a cat 45minuts drive from where I needed it without a change notice, so I came to LAX expecting to get a car and it was in Encino, an hour away, so I spent an hour on the phone for a credit and then, Hertz got me a car and made me happy and of course, cost me 30 more than Kayak was reserving, So next time I go to herts direct, they know what to do

Car was VERY twitchy on the road. Even the most minor bumps caused the vehicle to veer and skip dangerously. This would appear to be symptomatic of cheap tires or bad suspension.

Customer service was terrible when picking up our rental. We Made a reservation to only be told they weren’t taking reservations for that day because they didn’t have cars to rent. We waited for an hour to get a car. The agent handling our reservation was very dismissive , rude, and overall unprofessional. There was lack of communication from the agent and simply came off with a bad attitude. Did not walk us through our agreement and simply wanted us out of her way.
