When I collected the car I was charged a higher rate than what CarRentals.com had offered me. I was advised that rate I paid was a standard Hertz rate and that CarRentals.com do this all the time. It is unlikely that I will use this service again.

Nice people at the pick up and at the delivery of the car. Very good car. But I really think that the insurances, the road assistance and the currency exchange are very very expensive.
