Tried to call 4 different Budget numbers first morning line would Say connecting to an agent and then disconnects very frustrating. The car smelled like weed/smoke when we picked it up. Came back 20 min after pickup to let the agent know. She said she would note it on account. I asked about a later check in she said if I was later then 1:25 I would be charged full day 47.00 base rate. So we decided we would pay extra. My husband wanted another car it was that strong , but I didn’t want to wait. Next drop off was a mess two workers told us differently on drop off I instructions. Left keys on car, take my paperwork and no one looked over car with us there which I wanted to because they was no damage and full tank. They said I d get email haven’t yet. Looked on pending charges and it’s way over amount..... never agaon. Want explanation of why it’s soooo much pending

Clerk at Sarasota airport was very run. Had to find a ride from the budget that was not on site. Have never traveled where there was no shuttle. Very poor customer service

We ordered a pickup, but were given a dirty small hundai. The small suv was dirty, stunk, and was only ¾ full of gas.

Pick up was off site from airport. Not a big deal. Nice lady let us change drop off to the airport which was a huge deal for us. Usually use Hertz but will use budget moving forward.

No, had a 12noon rental. Called at 11:45 to explain our plane had just arrived and to confirm our reservation. Got to budget at 12:18 and clerk said she had closed and "It wasn't her problem". Three other renters encountered the same issue in the 30 min we were there. Were left in the parking lot to find another way to our destination.

Worst experience ever…will never rent again! Customer service was if no help when you finally get through to a human to speak too! Awful experience
1.9 HorribleAug 8 2021
We had made a reservation with Hertz via Kayak. When we wanted to pick up the car, Hertz didn't have one for us. We had to go to a different location on our own and rent a car for the daily Hertz rate and ended up paying more than double. It was an extremely frustrating experience and we will write a letter to Kayak and to Hertz and try to get our money back!
5.9 OkayJul 28 2021
Vehicle was value for the money. Customer service was not so good.
7.9 GoodJul 22 2021
I booked a compact car there wasn’t one available when I got there,the only thing they had available was a cargo van,the staff said it was the only vehicle they had,fortunately I drive one at my job everyday so I took it,they didn’t charge me any extra money,the manager and staff were excellent in explaining the situation to me,I definitely will go back to the Venice location to rent another vehicle just because of the staff there
1.9 HorribleJul 20 2021
Dealt with customer service representative at Sarasota Airport and off airport location in Sarasota. Both gentlemen were completely rude and unhelpful. The location closed before we were able to get our car and we could not call to speak to a representative without paying a 5% fee. Absolutely ridiculous, will absolutely never rent from Hertz again. Some of the worst customer service I’ve ever experienced in my life

8.0 ExcellentApr 27 2021
It was a good value! It beat the overpriced rates of Enterprise that are taking advantage of the tourists and locals in Venice, Florida. I drove 40 miles to get this Rental, and it was worth it.Staff was Great, but you need to get a drop box for rental keys for after hours and weekends.
4.0 OkayApr 17 2021
Original price was good but the tire went flat and had to call a wrecking service ($65). When he came he found that the spare was flat. Had to take tire to be fixed ($21). Had to take a taxi from airport to rental location and from rental location back to the airport ($35 + tip each way=$80). Extra $165. We lost a day of vacation when tire was flat and 2 1/2 hours waiting for tire to be repaired plus time getting to and from rental location which was approx. 10 miles in the opposite direction of where we were staying when we passed a Hertz location about 5 min. from where we were staying on the way to the place our reservation was made for us. Was told when I made reservation that we could be picked up from the airport.All of the above was a dislike PLUS the guy who was there was NOT personable or professional.

confusion about pick up location meant I had to uber from airport to a distant suburban location and wait for more than an hour to pick up my car. return was not much better since no one ever answered the phone when I needed to extend the rental or change the drop off. the staff at the airport was not helpful but when we were finally assisted at Clark Road, the lady there was very nice.

Booked a convertible it confirmed. Got there and they didn't have a convertible because on was returned earlier that day with damage. They could have called or emailed before I paid to Uber to the dealership. The woman that was helping was insanely abrasive and rude about it instead of apologetic. I understand things happen but I absolutely should have been notified before my reservation time plus she did not need to be so abrasive about it. Apologetic and calm if the way she should have approached it. I am extremely unsatisfied and will not book again.

Do not be late! This store closes at 5:00PM. Our daily rental rate increased dramatically when we picked up the next morning.

The staff was awesome. Answered All my questions.I was not happy with the quality of the car. Low tire pressure light came on numerous times. Also the car would pull to the left, even with the tires aired up properly.

We reserved a standard SUV and recharge received a compact SUV. Then found out they don't differentiate between the 2 sizes.

I reserved a Ford Mustang sports car and when I went to pick it up they said they didn’t have it because they were waiting for someone to return it. They gave me a Ford Explorer which had terrible gas mileage. I’m sure the Mustang had comparable gas mileage, but I don’t mind paying more for a sports car with superior handling and power instead of a gas guzzling suv.

When we got there they did not have our truck. Two others had reservations for trucks as well. The lady said she didn't know when they might get any trucks...why was the reservation allowed to be booked if no trucks? Bait and switch at its finest. Never renting from Avis again.

Easy pickup and drop off!Car was not as clean as I expected it to be. Windshield was dirty on the inside and it wasn’t vacuumed very good. Kind of felt funny turning it in in that condition even though I only rented it for 2 days and only drove it on of them.

The staff at Venice was great. As was the drop off in Miami. I will be going back to Avis.No notable shortcomings.
8.0 ExcellentJun 19 2020
Pickup staff was good. Drop-off quick and easy.Car condition at pickup could have been handled better. Passenger side had been sideswiped from front to back when I picked it up. This was not conveyed completely and correctly. Person at pick-up didn’t seem to have the documented condition in the record. Also gas cap was very broken when I picked it up.

Car was filthy. Pickup was a $30 cab ride from airport, not at airport. Car had damaged windshield and no washer fluid.

Car hire excess insurance in Venice

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 Venice 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 Venice.


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 Venice car rental.
