The experience at the counter was great. Took a little bit of waiting but the person was courtesy and the vehicle was in great shape at a great rate. Had a little bit of issue at the end because I extended the reservation twice and had to dispute additional charges but Hertz rectified the situation quickly after a phone call.

SORRY FOR THE RANT....This has been the WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE with a rental....first when I get to the rental office, they tell me they don't have a car for me, they called a different location, they said they had a car, and what do you know, once we get there....THERE IS NO CAR AVAILABLE EITHER....had to go back to original store since now they do have a car for us, get the car, dirty, smelling like cigarettes...but we were happy we had a car...a week goes by we had to change the car since it started doing weird noises and scared we would get stranded in the middle of no where. They were super nice about it and We got a new car!! BUT...the day of return I called customer service early in the morning to extend the rental for (3) THREE more hours and they told me that it would be $10.00 TEN DOLLARS for the three (3) hour extension. Less than an hour goes by and I check my credit card and it had been charged $57.69 for the extension of THREE HOURS, double of what a single DAY had cost me in the beginning, called customer service AGAIN and the representative tells me that THAT IS THE CHARGE and that if they had told me it was just $10.00 they should grant me the price they had indicated plus he also told me that the total amount of the rental was $368.59, immediately I told the customer service that he was wrong that I had the contract with me and the total for the rental was $341.00 and with the $10.00 for the extension should be a total of $351.00. Asked if I had the evidence of the contract to send it to their customer service email and I should get a response from them. Well...I did get a response, AFTER THE TIME THAT I HAD TO RETURN THE VEHICLE SO I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO PAY IT...telling me that charge for the change in 3 hours was $33.07 for the 3 hours PLUS $10.00 for the extension fee, plus taxes. I responded back that this was not what I was told and that this should be resolved plus that he hadn't touched the subject of the total amount of the rental, he just responded that they were sorry if their answer wasn't satisfactory to me. I was charged a total of $371.00 for the rental that should have been $351.00, I know it is NOT a big difference, but with all the trouble that I had to go through, their lying about the prices, responding to my request AFTER the fact, so I couldn't do anything about it and their lack of empathy of the employees, it is terrible.

They overbooked, which meant there wasn’t a car ready at the time of our reservation. After 1,5hrs waiting they tried to send us away with a standard car, while we booked a full size. We didn’t accept it and eventually got a SUV which was a great car. There were lots of people waiting behind us, we were lucky we had an early reservation.
