The drop-off was fine. The Pick Up was extremely disappointing. We arrived at Reagan National and went to pick up our Hertz rental car. Once at the counter the representative (she was very professional) informed me there would be a 90 minute wait time to get our car. I explained to her that we arrived "on time" and also spoke to her manager - explaining that we flew in that morning because our daughter in law was having her baby that same morning and could they please see if these special circumstances would help facilitate our getting a car - they were both very polite but flatly said no, they could and would not. We had to wait.. So...After 45 minutes I spoke to the people who provided the keys to your customers at the Hertz pick up spot and explained our dilemma. They were quite empathetic and helped us immediately in obtaining a car after that. I feel your team at the counter could have tried harder to help us out when I explained our dilemma. Again they were very professional, just unwilling to be of assistance when we had to get to the hospital ASAP. The bottom line to Hertz is... Will we use Hertz again when we return to the DC area next month? Probably not due to the experience we just had.Reviewed Feb 1 2024

The drop off location guy was very rude, aggressive, mean. I’m a renter I’m literally paying for his minimum wage I don’t deserve to be treated like he is doing me a favor. I hope you guys can do something about it.Reviewed Jan 12 2024

When making the rental, I didn't request an electric car. When I arrived for pickup, that was the only vehicles they had. I was taking a trip from DC to Columbia, SC. I've never driven an electric vehicle before. After getting a crash course, I was on my way. To make a long story short, charging the vehicle added on an extra 2 hours to long distance trip that I didn't plan on. Therefore, we were late to an event. When making the reservation, I had the opportunity to request an electric vehicle, but chose not to. I was given a description of a particular class of cars so that should have been available.Reviewed Nov 15 2023

They canceled my reservation the day of, even though I rsvp'd 20 days in advance. Will NEVER recommend this service to anyone, better to spend a little extra on a rental then be left in a hard place because of inventory mismanagement.Reviewed Oct 23 2023

The customer service representative at the Hertz counter at the 1919 Connecticut Av NW, Washington DC location was incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient. She made my car rental experience much easier than expected! ThanksReviewed Nov 1 2022

Arrived half an hour early, only to find out that there were 0 cars available (despite having reserved a week in advance) and there were 6 people ahead of me on the wait list and it could be hours before a car was available. The worker just shrugged and said too bad and was overall super unhelpful. My friend had a negative experience at this hertz before and I should have taken note. Fortunately the Avis booth next to Hertz had cars available. It was also an ordeal to actually get my reservation canceled through Hertz.Reviewed Oct 31 2022

Kayak's reservation code was only entered in Hertz's system on the day before, meaning Hertz did not really reserved anything. I got to pickup's place and there was no car available. Had to wait one hour for it. Meanwhile another costumer, who had not paid in advance like I did, was there waiting for 2 hours and obviously got preference to be attended first. When client pays in advance, please HONOR the contract and have the car available.Reviewed Oct 18 2022

The location did not have any cars available and 10 people were waiting for cars to be returned, which would take a few hours. Totally unacceptable.Reviewed Oct 17 2022
