Great rate but had a very small extra charge $2.00 but thought that was weird. Car was super cheap and a great rate compared to anything else I found.

What can I say!? It was so easy compared to other rental companies. I got in and out so quickly without that hard sell of buying insurance. There were no lines at the counter and it was a breeze. The car was great. Thanks!

I had never rented a car before, so this was my first experience. They did accommodate my requesting an upgrade, because they had a vehicle available, but boy do they hit you with this that and the other fees. Also, I bought insurance through their website, and for some reason they didn't have record of that, so I lost that money and had to buy more insurance from them.

After getting a confirmation for my rental with hertz I showed up and they said that I shouldnt have been able to make a reservation because they dont have any low level cars left :/ so I had to wait an hour and spend more to upgrade to the next level. The Hertz guys were nice and very busy so they did all they could.

I got to Hertz and they had the reservation but not the car. They gave me a dirty tin can car with horrible AC and I was miserable in the August LA heat.

I had a confirmed reservation to pick up a van. When I arrived the van wasn't ready. I waited 1.5 hours while they had 1 person cleaning the van (and he took a break while I was waiting!).

The customer service was not great! My car was not ready at pick up and I had to wait for it to be cleaned! It was banged up and smelled terrible inside the car!

Picked up my rental, expected for a Ford Focus, got a Nissan Versa which was stinky (probably a dog was in it previously, however a cleaner Focus was parked next to it). Made my booking online, paid in advance, after drop off they charged me a totally different amount ($5 more than original price). I thought rental companies like Hertz give better service than the cheaper ones... but I was wrong.

Car was not fully cleaned. Staff was not particularly friendly at pick up or return. The lot was hard to navigate; there were no signs as to where to return the car and not much place to put it despite it being a large facility. The mini van was great to drive and we’ll worth the value.
