Ridiculous that a spouse cannot automatically also drive the car (without paying $14 a day extra).
8.0 ExcellentMay 4 2022
Hertz is normally very efficient and professional. This time, the check-in agent was a bit cocky and the vehicle was a bit dirty. Not the excellent Hertz standard that I am used to.
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2022
I do not take out the insurance when I rent a car since I have great car insurance. The man that checked me in in JAX did not ask me ever if I wanted the add on insurance. It wasn't until I was an hour away at my hotel that I looked at my paperwork he handed me and realized I was being charged 39.99 extra per day. I contacted Hertz through text and they said since I had a signed contract that could not help me. I had to go back to where I got the car from. On Thursday afternoon, I noticed that the tire light had come on. It stayed on all day Friday. So Saturday morning I took it to a tire shop and they said it had 25 pounds of air and there seemed to be a slow leak. I had to go back to JAX before leaving for the second part of my trip to NC. The lady told me that if I didn't have the insurance the tire repair would be my responsibility????? Really!!! Can you verify your policy on that. I have no idea what made the tire leak. I certainly did not want a leaking tire. I had to switch cars. The second car was not great, but it got me here. There was horrible customer service in JAX.

Hertz didn’t have the 3 row SUV we payed for. They said it would take 2-4 hours after our scheduled pickup time to have one ready for us. So, they gave us a minivan instead. Upon return there was an additional $94.50 charge with no explanation. That’ a terrible business practice.
10.0 ExcellentMar 28 2022
It was all east and we liked the car and great value rental. It wasn’t clear that we needed to pay extra for the second driver and when we asked if we could simply change the named Driver and still have just one driver, we were told we couldn’t. That seemed very unfair to us and added a lot of cost.

There was low tire pressure on the left side and dangerously high tire pressure on the right side. And we had to wait 30 minutes for our car to be ready.

Created a Hertz rental through Kayak for a fantastic value! It was all paid for confirmed weeks before our trips. Once we landed at the airport and went to the counter to retrieve the car the associate claimed he could see my reservation, which was paid for with a Chime credit card, but that they did not accept Chime credit cards for reservation holds. Since I had no other credit card in my name my options were to cancel or put a $500 dollar hold on a debit card. I chose to cancel. I ended up saving a further $150 this trip using Uber.

Funny enough when I rebooked due to a wrong pick up (I selected Jacksonville Airport) it gave me Jacksonville instead. I was charge a bit more, and later it was the wrong day! Not February 9, 2022 but February 10, 2022. (it like a deja vu) ! I was charged more $ 237.00 more.... not nice!

The problem I experienced was that the agent at pickup pushed the insurance on me, telling me “this is Florida, a no-fault state.” I believe most are. But having seen all the ads for the ambulance chasers, I buckled and let her add the $30. When I got home I asked my husband about it and he said it was torkelt unnecessary.

When my flight arrived and I went to pick up the car I had reserved, there was nobody at the counter. Instead, there was a note scrawled on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper in sharpie saying they had run out of cars and to come back in 11hrs. That is a laughable level of disorganization, and I would not recommend anybody book through Dollar Car if they have any other choices.

Upselling at pick-up was very unprofessional. Numerous lies were shared to "scare" us into unnecessary charges. The gas charge was not well explained leading to excess charges. When we returned the car for tire pressure gauge malfunction, we were re-charged for another tank of gas!

When I went to pick up my car, the rental agency did not have any cars, even though I had a reservation well in advance. They said possibly the next day. I then had to take a $200 taxi to my destination. Still without a car. Who do I contact for reimbursement to cover the hundreds of dollars I spent on Ubers and taxis?

Despite a confirmed reservation, no cars were available for the entire weekend. Budget did NOTHING to help. At least 30 people were in the same situation.

We chose this company and paid extra because they were located in Jacksonville airport and we wanted to be able to get off the plane, get our car and go. That wasn't the experience at all. Budget acted like they had no clue what to do. There was a huge crowd of people waiting to get their cars, some of which had already been waiting an hour. It took us 40 minutes to get our car while we sat and waited looking at several hundred budget rent a cars that were 10 feet in front of us. Not sure why they had to go "pick up cars in a lot that's a couple of miles away." Won't use them again that's for sure

Very nice vehicle was given to us.Price had changed from what I booked through Kayak. I was quoted $144.00 plus a few Kayak fees. When I checked out after returning the vehicle to Enterprise at Fort Wayne Ohio Airport the price had changed and other fees from Enterprise had been added. When going through Kayak or Hotwire, the price should have been what we were quoted through these companies.

It was an easy process to begin with. The agent walked me around the car to make sure that there were no scratches or dents on the car. It was a brand new car with a little over 1,000 miles on it!The only thing I didn't like was the type of car I had. This really wasn't too terrible as I only needed to get from point a to point b.....

Not what I orderedPickup and drop off procedures were very efficient and the Jax aiport on site drop off was very convenient.The ordering process is not as efficient and not communicated well at all. I got the special premier car and the total was $115.00 for four days. When I arrived at the Alamo desk, the "premier" car was a pick up truck. I have no issue with trucks, but it is not efficient nor convenient for a vacation vehicle and to get a different vehicle raised the price to $240. I could have gotten the same car cheaper had I not been drawn in by a price that probably doesn't even exist.

I told jer that's not right and she said let me check and then said it would be $135. She said the extra was for insurance. I told her I have insurance, so she finally took the extra money off. Beware of them trying to trick you like this. Also the car was nasty. Dog hair and crumbs everywhere.

No information or help for directions at the airport. Went to pick-up. Signs only says returns and baggage.Let people know where to pick-up and park until you get the rental. And have someone in the booth that can tell you. Only Spanish speaking parking attendants that had no idea but to leave car in garage without a parking spot. And had to pay to exit the parking garage. Then they interpreted by phone

They are scam artistsThere was nothing to likeThey charge you an extra $350.00 to rent the car and also limit you to only a 150 per day. Even though it was reserved at one price and unlimited miles. They change your reservation and now you are stuck unless you decide to leave. They also take the spare tire out their cars so you would take their insurance. Avoid at all cost. Pay the extra money so you can get better service.

Dumb rulesIf you are a local renter,go someplace else and rent. These people say unlimited miles, unless you live in the state,then you are only allowed 150 free miles per day. They also want a $350.00 deposit. I guess they want to insure that they already have your money if you go over 150 miles per day. The rate per mile they charge after 150 miles is $0.55 . That could add up to some serious dollar amounts really quickly.

Don't believe the advertised reservationThe online reservation clearly stated unlimited miles. But when I'm standing at the reservation desk after I'm already at the point of no return I'm informed I am limited to a total of 300 miles, with each mile afterwards at $0.55 per mile. The whole purpose of the rental was for a trip that far exceeded the allowable mileage bringing my total out of pocket expense nearly four times the advertised rental rate. Even after I showed the manager my reservation and what was advertised he informed me it was a private company and that's their policy and if I didn't like It go somewhere else. Unfortunately I was stuck with no ride and no time to spare. I will not be using this service ever again.

What the Fog?The car seat came absolutely soaking wet. We had the hardest time with the car continually fogging up. It was fine when parked but as soon as we turned it on, nothing but fog. It was actually dangerous. Also, seats 5 but if you are the unfortunate one to sit in the back middle seat you will be uncomfortable. It is so high your head touches the roof and you feel squished even though there is room. Finally, we were told that the rental office opened at 5am. They don't. The 800 number only gave us grief and attitude.

Stay away from E-Z Rental: cars are not reliableThe only good thing about E-Z Rental was that after a horrendous experience, they gave us a brand new, upgraded vehicle. There was also a very nice lady working in the car lot who saw my family with young kids waiting and gave us all a free bottle of water.We had an absolutely horrendous experience with E-Z Rental. First, we had an extremely long wait to get our vehicle, at least 45 minutes. Second, they gave us an unreliable car. Sitting in the passenger seat, I could feel intense vibration in the vehicle. I said something to my husband about how uncomfortable it was. But we pressed on, we thought this is what we got for trying to save a little money on a rental car. But no amount of savings is worth putting my family's lives at risk. As we continued on the vibration continued to get stronger and stronger. It was so bad, I finally called E-Z Rental Roadside Assistance. She could hear the vibration through the phone and said we should get off the road immediately. We got to an exit, got to a gas station, and asked what they would do. She patched us in to the Jacksonville airport location. It was 9pm at night and thw employee there said there was nothing he could do until the next morning and that they couldn't pay for our hotel. Basically we were stranded with an undrivable car and no hotel, 3.5 hours from our final destination. My husband called AAA and they came to change our tire. The mechanic said he was absolutely shocked that a rental company would give us a car with a tire in that condition. The inside of the tire was completely shredded. I shudder to think what would have happened to my family if that wheel had popped on the expressway and we lost control of our vehicle. My husband then drove our car back to the Jacksonville airport with the donut on it at 6am so he could be there when the manager got in. They gave us half off our rental car which basically covered our hotel for the night and our AAA membership which covered changing the tire. I'm shocked that they weren't able to do more for us, given the fact that they put my family's lives at risk and then weren't willing to pay for our hotel when we were stranded at night, still far from our intended destination. I will never rent from E-Z Rental again.

Top tips for hiring a car at Jacksonville Airport

  • Whether you are traveling to Jacksonville for leisure or business, a car rental at Jacksonville Airport (JAX) gives you the freedom to move around at your convenience without the need to rely on the rigid public transportation system. Jacksonville, perfectly nestled along the Atlantic Ocean in Northeast Florida, is a fascinating paradise for those looking for a luxurious yet affordable getaway. When you are visiting the "Bold New City of the South" as Jacksonville is locally known, there is no better way of exploring the city than with a car rental at Jacksonville Airport (JAX). With your rented car, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of Jacksonville at your pace and pleasure. Simply put, a Jacksonville Airport car rental gives you the freedom to explore the city and its surroundings on your terms.
  • The car rental companies have their desks next to the airport’s baggage claim area just off the lower level of the terminal building. From here, you will find both multinational as well as local car rental agencies. Better still, these agencies provide a wide range of car rental options, from luxury cars to vans and everything in between. It’s all about your budget and preference. You can book your preferred car online and pick up on arrival after taking care of the necessary paperwork. Once you pick up your Jacksonville rented car, you can take a 20min drive to the Jacksonville city center via the I-95 N.
  • Driving around Jacksonville can be tough, especially if you are a first-timer. Things get tough when you are not sure about the rules of the road. When approaching a four-way stop where one or more cars need to stop, the most prudent thing to do is pause at the stop sign, then get into the intersection as soon as you can. The left lane is always designated for drivers over 65. The state of Florida enforced the Move Over Act in 2002. This act requires drivers to change lanes or slow down 20 mph when approaching an emergency vehicle. As you probably know, driving while operating a handheld device is not a good idea and it might earn you a fine in the Sunshine State. So avoid the temptation to talk on the phone or grab that selfie stick while behind the wheel. Finally, driving under the influence is prohibited in Jacksonville. If convicted, you may face a fine or have your license suspended.
  • Jacksonville, like any other city, has its share of traffic challenges that you need to know when planning to visit the city. Morning rush hour begins at around 7 am through to 9 am. The afternoon rush starts from around 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm. Things can get worse when it is raining and all eastbound bridges are clogged up due to mishaps. Generally, you may want to set off for your drive to the airport early enough to avoid running into traffic that might cause you to miss your flight.
  • Book your car hire at Jacksonville Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
