Great customer service!
Pros: I unwittingly waited at the airport location desk, and the clerk offered to give me a car at that location rather than going to my reserved offsite location.

One better than the other
Pros: Williston Rd location was fast and friendly.
Cons: Went to the airport first by mistake and the counter person was rude and I nearly cancelled my rental.

Sep 18 2017
Pros: The vehicle was very clean and excellent with gas usage. The employees were friendly.
Cons: The line for pickup was very long (not enough workers) and I was misinformed about the specific pickup location. Luckily, I was still able to get a vehicle even though it was an incorrect location. The total time was almost 1 hour by the time I actually got into the rental.

Great Staff at Pickup Location
Pros: The two gentlemen working at the Williston Road location were very professional and nice. They explained that I could drop the car off at the airport with no extra charge.
Cons: All was good.

Aug 18 2018
Pros: Great price for the type of car and the duration of the rental. The young man who helped me pickup the rental car was just really pleasant and tried very hard to make that transaction go as well as possible.
Cons: Pickup of the car took longer than anticipated due to a printer issue. I hope they replace that soon to benefit their customers and employees too!

Great employees in Burlington!
Pros: The staff were professional and extremely helpful in what was for me a stressful situation. The airlines got me to my destination 8 hours late and I was concerned about the availability of my rental. Thanks to two Budget agents, Admir and Omar, everything worked out and I was able to enjoy my vacation. The vehicle was as promised. The staff were also courteous and helpful at drop off.

I would of never settled with an unsafe car.
Pros: I liked that it was clean and great radio system for phone calls on the road or when you parked the car the app would show how close your car was parked when on Bluetooth. And the friendly customer service at the Burlington Airport.
Cons: I didn’t like the vehicle it wasn’t safe overall. It drove like a roller skate on ice in the wind and it pulled to the side horribly.

Nothing went wrong!
Pros: It was a nice, clean new car. They had the one I reserved and didn't try to upsell me. They were efficient, prompt, and professional at the counter.
Cons: Although this rental company is inexpensive relative to the local competition, the price still seems a little high to me. But that's the only mild complaint I had this trip.

Service ruined it
Pros: Rental was a good price and car was fine.
Cons: Rented car was unavailable. Substitute car was larger than desired. Car had bumps all over that needed to be documented. Car was not cleaned. Line for car took very long. Line for returning car was for after I wait until everyone else checks out a car. You’d think they want us to return cars first, both so they have something for the next customer and so that I won’t be late for a flight. Don’t the agents realize they have a long line waiting so they would work faster?

Aug 8 2016
Pros: I was very happy with the price because I reserved online via a 3rd party. However, I would not have wanted to pay the price that was offered at the counter. Overall, I got great service and for once I did not feel like I was dealing with a used car salesman. Every rental car company I've used in the past has tried to convince me to upgrade and when I insisted I didn't want to, they finally upgrade me anyhow because they have no choice! So sleazy! Anyhow, didnt' deal with that w/ Alamo. Thank you!
Cons: It would be helpful to have someone in the garage readily available (appreciated that in Boston when i returned the car). I had a couple questions about the car and had to walk to the terminal and then back to the garage again to meet someone there. It's not the first time in Burlington that I wished there was someone there. I had a similar problem when returning a car there.

Pros: They made pickup and drop off very smooth and easy, and were helpful both at the desk and on the phone.
Cons: The car smelled awful. It smelled like someone had smoked a pack of cigarettes and possibly vomited in it, and then just dumped a can of air freshener in it. The combination made me feel sick and made for a very unpleasant drive.

Cons: I was not able to drop off at another location in Burlington (airport) without incurring a $200 fee. The car I requested was not available so I received an upgrade which was a nice suv however I chose an economy car based on its size and gas mileage both of which were completely different with the car I received.

Pros: Enterprise on 1189 Williston are very courteous and professional. I used them 3 times this season and it was always a good experience.
Cons: I wasn't sure if the rental company's damage waiver was necessary, so I paid it the first 2 rentals. Then I spoke to my VISA customer service and they said they would cover any damage if I paid with VISA and turned down the rental company insurance, so the next rental I did that.

Pros: Car was ready and easy to pick up.

Please make it more challenging and time consuming
Pros: The woman at the counter spoke very good English.
Cons: You must drive into a garage where there is only a small sign posted, that applies to all car rental companies, which you must stop and read, and it is on a curve where cars are blindly coming around and you must stop, block traffic, and read the four steps of 1) parking the car in the appropriate area, 2) cleaning it out, 3) writing down the mileage and 4) locking it, noting the number of your space, and returning the keys to the rental counter. What it doesn't say is 1) your parking space is far away 2) the rental counter is across the street in the main terminal downstairs on the other end 3) the escalators don't work and 4) have fun waiting in line to turn in all this information you are supposed to provide.

Feb 16 2016
Pros: It was a fast, friendly pick-up, and the rental associate was immensely personable - a nice change from the curt interactions I've had elsewhere.
Cons: Chevy Spark + windy highway = how did I not blow off the road? Definitely know what car I won't be buying or recommending for everyday use. I wish I'd known how it drove before choosing the cheaper option - good for around town, but not higher speed trips... Still, better than taking a two hour bus ride.

Highly Disappointed
Cons: Being not familiar with the area I apparently did not rent from the kiosk at the airport but somewhere off site. The office would not stay open the extra five minutes for me to get there and the airport office would not honor the reservation price and instead of the reserved price of $249.00 offered to rent me a comparable vehicle at $605.00.

Pros: The price was good.
Cons: No fault of Hertz- the defrost did not work in the Versa, and the heat barely worked at all. It was cold!! Also, I had been told I could get a ride after drop off, however, only one guy on duty on Saturday so no-one could. I wish I had known about Saturday ahead of time. The manager at the Shelburne Rd is a bit gruff, the other staff were friendly.

Ended up canceling
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Made reservation for 3 days through Kayak for what I thought was a reasonable price. Then I found out that the rental location was a few miles from the airport. Called Hertz to see if I could change the reservation to pick up the car at the airport. I got a representative that is "not local," with an accent that was hard to understand, who was not very helpful. He quoted a price for airport pickup that was 3 times the original reserved price - for the difference of a few miles? I thought that was unreasonable and cancelled. I ended up using another rental company whose price for airport pickup was only $20 more than Hertz's original off site price.

Great Customer Service
Pros: We rented a vehicle for a cross country family trip. I explained to the customer service person that I had picked an unlimited miles package because we would be putting 7000 miles on the car. The car was serviced and ready at pick up. It was everything we needed for the trip. Upon return the desk was amazingly accommodating.

Pros: After an initial mess up at the airport, I had to take Uber to another Hertz facility. The agent at this second facility was exceptional nice, caring, and accommodating. He redeemed my experience!
Cons: The car I got did not have cruise control. I consider that a vital way to keep my speed under control when traveling through Vermont's numerous speed trap areas.
