At the rental, I informed the rental agent that I may be returning the car early. She told me that was not a problem. On the door was a sign referring to placement of the keys in a dropbox. I attempted to return the car early, but before the office opened at 8 a.m. There was no dropbox as advertised. After much calling multiple numbers within Hertz, I was informed by roadside assistance (who knew that was what I needed to call) to drop the car off at the airport. I was also informed that they would charge me the "intercity fee". I was indeed charged the intercity fee. I am in a dispute with Hertz over that charge.

The whole process was professional and easy. I really enjoyed the car I received and it was an excellent price. The vehicle was clean and well cared for. The Hertz office is also quote nice for a rental car company, and the attendant was friendly and communicated well. Overall. A great experience.

At San Diego Airport we were told we could not pick up or return the rental car there because we reserved through 3rd party such as Kayak. They wanted us to uber to a location 20 minutes from airport.. Had to scrap the reservation and book direct with Hertz. Not booking through kayak again

The staff was generally friendly, but acted somewhat suspicious... The staff mentioned NO SMOKING in the car etc. After receiving the car and driving away, within the next few minutes while inside the closed cabin with A/C "on" I realized that the car had embedded cigarette-smoke smell into seats/carpets. It was too late for me to return and complain about it. We had to endure the choking irritation for next 24 hours and that was not pleasant. Finally, I was asked whether I wanted to receive electronic (email) or printed receipt. I opted for BOTH. That email never came to my inbox.

Total bait and switch on renting a car. Showed it was at San Diego (when I searched for the SD airport), but when I got there they said..."sorry, that was purchased at a different Hertz location and they are already closed for the day." That was at NOON on Saturday!! The gal at the Hertz location at the airport said that if I call Hertz directly, they should be able to move the pickup to the airport location, but after a 20 minute conversation with them, they just pushed a new sale on me that was 2 1/2 times higher than what I was quoted. I was forced to take the deal because I had no other options. I'm fighting the bill through my credit card company, but I definitely won't be using them again!!!

Picked up our rental at the San Diego CA Airport to travel to Maryland. Upon checking the car out for damage with the Hertz rental agent, he noticed 🐜 ants on the front outside car head lamp. He pointed it out or what I remember him saying I see ants. I thought nothing about it and I certainly didn't say anything, only because it was outside, I saw only maybe two or three crawling, again this was outside of the car. We stated our long travels to the state of Maryland, three thousand mile journey home. After traveling maybe eight hours, I looked to the back seat and there were thousands and I mean thousands of ants crawling all over the rear back seat. There were so many ants you could not even see the color of the seat. I immediately pulled to the shoulder if the busy highway and started grabbing handfuls if ants trying to get these ants out if the car. I again immediately trying calling Hertz rental agent and left several messages. In the meantime I stopped at a store and got ant spray and started spraying the inside of the car. Remind you that cars / rental cars are at a premium and for a three day rental I paid over one thousand dollars to rent this car. After about three more hours after placing my call to Hertz I received a call back. The manager said all he could do was refund one hundred dollars to the rental amount.. Upon stopping for the might of the three day travels I sprayed ants spray in the car nightly and still on occasions had ants crawling up my leg while driving. I feel Hertz owes me a refund for my troubles and in convenience of my time.

Rental experience was easy.Would have preferred the Ford Transit over the GM van as the comfort and amenities were nicer and the ride and handling is much better in the Ford.

Customer Service is basically, non-existent. The Manager was sitting on his computer while I was talking and couldn't be bothered and the Sales Representative, explained that many customers have complained about Customer Service and how Management chooses not to respond.

Very HappyIt is so rare today to have a pleasant experience with any company in the service industry. My experience was one of those rare instances! Your representative was pleasant and efficient. The car was ready when we arrived and the paperwork took less than 5 minutes (which was very important because we had a 13 month old who needed a nap.) When we returned the car, the cost was exactly what had been agreed upon -- no hidden fees. Thanks for making this part of our trip run so smoothly!!

Bait and switchI had requested a car rental near the San DIego airport and when I got to Avis, was told that the pickup for the car was about 20 minutes away and it was suggested that I Uber there. I didn't have time for that, so they referred me to a private car rental service that provides transportation primarily for missionaries heading for Mexico. The private agency owners were very accommodating, but I paid twice the price quoted, got a car that didn't have a functioning speedometer, a brake light that wouldn't turn off, and another dial on the dash that was out of control. Overall, it was a big disappointment and delayed arrival at my destination by about an hour or so.

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 Solana Beach 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 Solana Beach.

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 Solana Beach car rental.
