Vehicle was good and comfortable overall and held all of our stuff. I had to put air in one of the tires near the end of the trip. The vehicle was not spotlessly clean but not too bad.

The car was ready at arrivalCar was dirty on outside a quick wipe down was done prior to my arrival however it was still very dusty. Inside of vehicle were carpet stains, build up of food in cup holders and faint smell of cigarette smoke. Vehicle would stutter sporadically while on the road. I was concerned throughout the whole trip the car may need service

It was the BIGGEST NIGHTMARE EVER. They didn’t have a car available for my Saturday reservation, they had me come back Sunday and again didn’t have a car available then either. And all this I was dragging my 5 month old son in a car seat taking a Uber back and forth with him to get a car, until finally they told me I had to go to the airport location to get a car and that was done Sunday night after taking another Uber with my son to the airport to get a car. IT WAS A TOTAL TOTAL NIGHTMARE. And I didn’t enjoy any parts of it at all...

Reasonable price for weekly rental with drop off different from pickup location. Budget rental reservation Agents did assist with billing and car availabilty issues.Car was unavailable at the origanal location, so had to pick up from airport. Car was dirty inside and out, stained rear seats. Vehicle had slight shimmy at highway speed and brakes grabbed/ pulsated.

Disastrous service from start to finishDidn't have vehicle, sent me to another location an hour away at my own cost and charged me extra to rent from there. Reason provided for not giving me vehicle: "Meh, the people who deliver vehicles to our location don't care." Most horrid rental experience of my life. Day ruined, no apologies at all, and at nearly double the quoted price too. Stay far away from these crooks.

Worst customer service experienceI was finally able to get my car after much arguing with the manager.They had no cars available, even after accepting our reservation and confirming via phone that they had the cars. When I showed up there were no cars. The entire team's mentality was "not my problem". A couple not from the US needed a way to get to Orlando and was asking about a gray hound or some sort of bus, the best help they could offer was "use your phone and Google it yourselves". The team would take any opportunity to open their phones and look at Facebook, even if you were mid conversation.

Terrible customer serviceThe pick up location in Miami had 3 people behind the counter & all three were helping the same customer. Then when we finally were directed to our rental, which was in an upstairs garage. We walked around for 10 minutes trying to find it, due to poor directions.

Pick up was super easy and the car was great and really cleanWhen picking up the car, the Hertz representatives never once let us know that the location would be closed on the return day. When we went to drop off the car, I had to call customer service 3 times. The key drop off box had been stolen and missing for what looked like a long time, judging by the screws on the ground and imprint of the box on the wall. After waiting 20 minutes on the line with the roadside assistance team, I eventually had to lock the keys in the car and leave so I didn't miss my flight. The team needs to communicate better about drop off/procedures especially if the location is closed on the day of return.

Nothing. I would never rent from this particular Hertz again and I don't recommend anyone rent from them.First, this rental facility is off airport property. There is NO shuttle from the airport, which I was unaware of. I had to take a taxi for $30! I rented a "full size car", a Chevy Malibu. The car was trashed! It took myself and a Hertz employee almost 15 minutes to document all the previous damage to the vehicle. It was covered in dents, scratches. The rims were damaged from grinding on curbing and were filthy. The Hertz employee told me the car was damaged "during Spring Break" rentals. The inside of the car was clean with the exception of the interior glass. I would have refused the vehicle under any other circumstances but I was pressed with time so after carefully documenting, including photos, the damage I accepted it. I was returning the vehicle at 4:00AM because of an early flight. I then was told that this particular Hertz has NO drop box! I was told that I could return the vehicle this to the airport at an additional cost of over $50! Once again, I had no choice. I had to take the hit. Rent from this Hertz at your own peril.

Nothing at all, Hertz said they needed a soft credit check in order to rent a car.Do the same as other agencies like Alamo that I had been and will return to, and if you have the funds rent the vehicle.

2.0 MediocreDec 28 2020
Staff friendly.The car was dirty and smelled like heavy air freshener. There was something wrong with the steering or wheel alignment, which made the trip difficult at night in rain and wind. The Clearwater airport office traded it out for a decent vehicle, but the Coral Gables office never should have put that car on the road.

just okWell, I was to drop off on Sunday by 5pm. I was there they were closed, so mis information. I dropped off the car and keys hopefully they won't charge me extra!

Pros and Cons, but I will use Hertz again.Great price by going just a few miles off the airport - huge savings for my six week rental. When someone backed into the vehicle, the process was handled professionally and I had a new vehicle just a short time later.The car smelled like vomit on the first day that the sun came out - I had it detailed and then had to spread coffee grounds under the floor mats and in the trunk to finally get rid of the smell. When my plans changed and I considered driving home instead of flying, I was informed that it would cost $6000 extra to turn it into a one way rental according to the call center, which is obviously overseas. Having a call center overseas makes the process to obtain assistance WAY too long - you can't just say what you need, they have to follow the script. This is terrible from a customer service standpoint. From now on I will just ask for an American from the start, it was such an improvement each time I did.

They did not have enough cars for customers, blamed spring break. Stranded people were upset. I got a car as a favor it seemed. But it was old and dirty inside and out (while Covid-19 is still going on), it felt gross, I wiped driver's area myself. I had to ask to get the dirty glasses cleaned. Also dashboard signaled car needing service. Card processing tool was malfunctioning. I had to ask how tolls work in Florida, no info offered. Gave me wrong closing time (on paper, and verbally by the kind but uninformed rep who processed my pick-up) thus I found location closed at drop-off! The representative locked in the office was reluctant to offer assistance. Stressful. It all felt chancy, unreliable, unsettling.Should be prepared with sufficient vehicles to match bookings. Clean the cars well. Have knowledgeable and proactive staff. Have consistency in published business hours on all platforms. Provide right info on paper. Have an automated system to send a alert text to renters with drop-off location and time the day before. And, answer the phone!!

Not a long wait for the location I was at.It was a very long and expensive taxi ride from Miami airport. When I went to trim it in, the office was closed 10 minutes early so I had to call the number on the door. Fortunately, Damion answered and met me in front to give him the keys.
1.9 HorribleJun 23 2021
Returned car one hour late as thought it was due back an hour later. Avis charged me $58.00 for the one hour. The rate per day was $26.00. This is outrageous and total piracy. So ridiculous and stealing from customer. I am a business client so was shocked at this unethical business practice. Beware of Avis!!

Friendly staff, loved the Chrysler 300.My initial flight was delayed so I called asking if I could pick up the car the next day, I was told it wouldn't be a problem but the person I spoke with didn't ask my name or reservation number. When I got there the next day, there were no Chrysler 300's available and I got a Kia Optima that smelled like body odor. I was able to take it to the airport Avis and get the Chrysler thankfully, and everyone was great that I dealt with, but obviously it would have been ideal to get the car I requested at the location I planned. Otherwise I would have just gone to the airport spot.

Nothing.I thought I was picking my car up from the Miami airport. Turns out I had to take a cab to another rental agency a few miles into Miami. Once there, my car was ready but not at the same price I booked the car for.

No 3rd party insuranceHi I was deeply disappointed to learn that I'm not insured against 3rd party liability! The rental price went up by 14$/day which was no longer a bargain. Kindly, change the information provided to the customer. I'd also appreciate a remedy from your side for the incurred $14x13 days expenses. Plus, I received no offer to prepay tolls - so I'd be paying more after.

Car smelled like cigaretteThe car smelled like cigarette and I could not change it because it was the only they had at the pick up location. I used it for a 5 hour trip, and I had to buy car deodorizer and even with that the scent was strong.

Some South Miami 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 South Miami.
