My agreement was to rent the car for $60/day rate, I returned the car that evening, my initial Visa statement said $70, fine, but 2 weeks later I was billed $135. Not good, something is going on here!

The hertz location where I picked up my rental vehicle from the Assistant manager was professional but all the other employees lacked communication skills and ownership of their work. I was charged late fees etc, because of my lack of acknowledgement of the renting period initialized in the contract which I did call to be modified. The location would fail to return scheduled call backs, because they would be occupied with clients in store. This made my experience with Hertz a disaster. As upon dropping the vehicle at a different location at the Vancouver Airport, I agreed to whatever charges and notified that they could charge my credit card. The woman who was giving me assistance did not value my flight time and the limited time I had and held me waiting for a manager. I eventually left without notice and I still missed my flight. Customer Service training and professionalism needs to be incorporated more heavily. The car itself served a great purpose and the rates were average which was a decent thing.

My experience was awesome! Eventhough we haven’t got the SUV we booked but the agent made sure to make up for that although it turned out to be just a car he gave us something spacious for a car and customer service was A+, we will definitely go with HERTZ again next time we visit Nanaimo.

The car was not clean, popcorn was between the seats from previous renters. Couldn't use AC, had a terrible odour. Windshield wipers need to be replaced. Lot closed on Sunday and return to park on street unattended.

They made me go all the way to the airport to pick up a car that they didn't have. In fact, they had no car available at all. On top of that the service wasn't even trying to resolve the situation. Because I already had all my other plans set and due to the late hour, I had no other choice but to rent whatever another company had to offer, which came at a price that was 3x as high.

Booked the car online and it said a luxury car. I told the girl at the counter, but she was very rude about it and gave me a Kia Forte...not even close to a luxury car!!! And she could barely get off her phone when I came to the counter to pick up the vehicle. She was very snarky and unpleasant to deal with. The smell in the vehicle was also very unpleasant

My car was nice clean and everything but had an engine issue because it was showing engine lights and service reminder icon the car wasn't performing well but I was in a rush so I didn't mind. It had major issue climbing uphill compare same size other cars.

The staff at pick-up and drop-off was very nice and helpful. Sadly the previous renter must have smoked in the car which is forbidden by Hertz's policy and not to any fault of Hertz or their staff! Harry (Harinder), the clerk at pick-up, provided me with air freshener to ease the smell.

didn't like the fact that with a click of a key I couldn't undo my date changes that I mistakenly inputed instead of the correct dates. Got nicked additional money from Hertz
