My experience picking up the car was excellent however returning the car was not, I wanted to pay cash for the car rather than leaving the expense on my credit card, the clerk just took my paperwork, ask if I was returning the car, she ask me to wait , when she returned she processed the paperwork and ask me to sign, I think she should have asked if I wanted to pay or leave on the card,otherwise ok

As a repeated customer (twice per year for 3 years) the process should be expedited and more efficient...my time is very important

Pick up the car and after getting to the my hotel I had a flat, return the car to the office and explaining the situation to one of worker he’s accusing me, saying I deliberately got the flat on purpose. His attitude was nasty!

Hertz really let us down. We had reserved a car in March 2018. When we arrived there was no car available for us. Our reservation had been given to a customer just ahead of us. He did not have a reservation. We had to go to another company and make a last minute rental which costs us $250 more. Needless to say it was an unpleasant experience. There was nothing about it made us want to rent from Hertz ever again in life.
