I used my debit Masters card to book a car. CarRentals accepted my card, so I thought the car is booked. But, it turned out Enterprise doesn't accept a debit card. I had to go to Hertz.

I booked for crossover vehicle or similar, but was given car. I refused to take that, then waited for an hour for the vehicle I paid for. Receptionist said she doesn’t have any control over the booking and the store manager no where to find. Vehicle wasn’t really cleaned up from previous return and gas tank wasn’t full. When I rented through Car rental, my original prize supposed to be $200 US but at the end I was charged with $365 Canadian.

I was worried that this deal was too good and when I would get to the dealer, they'd say it was not good. But, they honored the deal

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

We reserved for 7 seater van so we have space for our belonging but they gave us SUV. Though it is 8 seater, if you will not fold the last layer it will not fit your belongings. We're 3 couples so we can't fold the last layer. So we have to put our things on our side which we became uncomfortable for our long drive. We will not rent here again.
