“Horrible experience”

Written on: 14/02/2015 by ParisPierce (1 review written)

I would NEVER recommend this company for car hire to anyone! When I delivered the car I found out they had double charged me with making me pay for a "Super Cover Insurance" that I never ordered and when asked if I wanted it I said NO and there is NO way one could misunderstood that. Please be aware and do NOT trust them. I will never rent from them again that's for sure !… Read Full Review

“Hertz accepting reservations when they have no cars”

Written on: 12/02/2015 by Leticiaz394 (1 review written)

Reserved a car in Palm Springs USA from Hertz. Arrived there prior to our 10:00 am reservation to find out they have no cars! The fellow working there and helping us told us that this has been an ongoing problem for the past 5 days. Four other people showed up behind us to find they have no cars for them either even though they as well had reserved a car. Being that my friend and I are on a short vacation we had plans for the day which were ruined by the unavailability of a car. As well… Read Full Review

“Do not rent from this company! ”

Written on: 05/02/2015

We recently rented a car from Sydney Airport, Australia. They ended up charging us A$350 for a bulge in the wheel arch that we did not cause - there's no scratch or dent, it's literally a bit of the fender popped out from losing a clip. They then added on a long list of additional charges totalling an extra $130, including $55 for the claim processing and another absurd one called a "location fee": this is 25% of the admin and credit card surcharge combined, supposedly a charge from Sydney… Read Full Review

“Extra Charges Show Later ”

Written on: 29/01/2015 by Williev257 (1 review written)

I was traveling in California and went through tolls. I paid these tolls, but I received a ticket in the mail and hertz charged me $30 on my card. I called the toll roads and they fixed the problem, but hertz would NOT take the $30 charge off even with no violation. The customer service was difficult and rude. I will never rent from this company again and advise others not too… Read Full Review

I recently rented a car in Italy from Auto Europe, which we paid in full before our trip, we paid $660 approximately we were directed to Hertz for the rental. We rented in Rome and were to turn it in in Venice.

The gentleman did not speak English and we… Read Full Review

“Poor customer service”

Written on: 27/01/2015 by Sayara (1 review written)

After hiring a car in Milan in mid-October for 4 days, I have finally received an unsatisfactory response to my complaint over 3 months later (in January 2015). Excess insurance was taken out, but according to Hertz a gear box issue was my liability (after just 20 minutes of driving, mainly on a highway). The whole recovery service was unsatisfactory, with Hertz nearly abandoning two ladies on the side of a road - only with the kind assistance of an Italian speaking friend were we escorted to… Read Full Review

“Hertz South Africa”

Written on: 26/01/2015 by pelsolad (2 reviews written)

We live in UK but rented direct with Hertz, Jo'burg for 4 weeks in Dec 2014 because they were quite a bit cheaper than quotes through websites. Got a virtually new car with new tyres, which, having a good tread, probably saved us getting stuck in mud several times. Unfortunately we scraped the bumper and I expected an exaggerated repair bill for a complete new bumper, but in fact just got charged £90 plus £30 admin. All emails were answered very quickly and there were no unexpected… Read Full Review

I rented a car with Hertz The Hague (NL) to be returned at Amsterdam airport during closing time (key drop-off box). The price was agreed beforehand (online booking) but after returning they charged me an extra fee, out of the blue and without any explanation. I'm still waiting for a reply from them… Read Full Review

“Appalling service and dreadful car”

Written on: 15/01/2015 by Drake71 (1 review written)

I hired a car to tour northern Israel. I picked up the car in Haifa. The staff were extremely unhelpful. The girl at the desk was more interested in answering her mobile phone than dealing with us. I was not given any information about the controls on the car and had to ask how to select drive (the car was an automatic). The car was dreadful. It would not change from 2nd to 3rd gear easily or from 3rd to 4th. I spent most of the time driving round in 3rd gear which was unbelievably irritating… Read Full Review

“NEVER RENT FROM HERTZ”

Written on: 13/01/2015 by JadielBartlett1962 (1 review written)

I will never rent from Hertz again. I had booked a rental in February 2014 for a rental car for December 26, 2014 through to January 1, 2015. When I arrived at the Orlando Airport Hertz desk they had to rental cars left. We were forced to upgrade due to having a wedding to get to. The Orlando Airport Hertz did not seem to worried that there were 40-50 people who had reserved vehicles when they had not one single vehicle at the location. After being forced to upgrade because no cars being… Read Full Review

I have the similar experience with you at the LA airport hertz, we were forced to upgrade because the car they provide at that level was a very small one which was not we reserved. And also a lot of customers waiting there, but they only have very few working staff. We waited for 40 minutes there!

“Dishonest Hertz staff ”

Written on: 08/01/2015 by qjDwyer368 (1 review written)

I hired a car from Hertz at their Belfast International Airport desk. I advised the salesperson in no uncertain terms that I didn't want any additional extras over and above what I had clearly stated I wanted. Upon returning from holiday I noticed that Hertz had taken extra money from my bank account and to cut a very long story short the salesperson at the Belfast desk had added on an extra insurance policy that I didn't want. I followed this up with Hertz and found their staff to be very rude… Read Full Review

“Hertz? Avoid at all cost!”

Written on: 08/01/2015

I rented a vehicle (2013 Avenger) on the 22nd of December 2014 in San Francisco from O'Farrell Street HLE at approximately 10.21 a.m. When I booked the vehicle, I booked it for three days, planning to return it on the 24th of December 2014. I was told that the 550 O'Farrell Street HLE branch will be closed at 6pm on the 24th of December 2014 but I COULD choose to return the vehicle at the 325 Mason Street branch because I was told that it would close at 7.45 p.m. instead of 6 p.m. Having been… Read Full Review

“Bad customer service”

Written on: 07/01/2015 by Isaii94 (1 review written)

Hertz at the charlotte airport is horrible. Car was not clean, spots on the floor. If you rent make sure you make note of everything about the cars. Something was missing at the front of the hood. Asked for another car an only got excuses. Staff is not friendly. How do you have people working customer service that act like you did something wrong by simply showing up. Every customer that was there had a complaint. Hertz if you read this have your staff evaluated at charlotte airport. Never… Read Full Review

“Worst Rental Car Experience Ever!! 0 Stars Minus 5”

I rented a vehicle at Pittsburgh International Airport on Dec 20, 2014 at. 9 pm .and my nightmare began that ruined my holiday trip home to see my family. My son also rented a vehicle from Hertz that same evening. Upon arrival to the counter my son got his car and expected to have a car seat, which he paid to rent. Three car seats were left in the garage outside in plastic bags which was 28 degrees and freezing. None of the three car seats fit- all too small and they were told nothing could be… Read Full Review

“Old filthy rental car”

Written on: 01/01/2015 by srHoughton6 (1 review written)

I recently rented a mini van in SF. It was filthy, had 51k+ miles and the rear seat belts had been chewed through by some sort of animal. When we brought the problem to the attention of the check in person they weren't any help. To make it worse the next week we rented another mini van in SV Idaho only to find out there wasn't any windshield washer fluid in the van. Can you imagine driving to Boise in the snow with a dirty wind shield. I would have stopped to buy some fluid but at 6:30am there… Read Full Review

“Hertz Rabat Airport, Morocco”

Written on: 31/12/2014 by dfVelez420 (1 review written)

We have rent a car with hertz through Ryanair. The staff refused to give us the car for about 1.5hour. They first said that they don't find my name in their system. Then because we have arrived at 9pm and not 7pm, they are not under any obligation to rent us the car. After that they said they are not sure the photo in my passport is mine. I give them 2 additional IDs with photos and called the police to confirm my identity, which the police did. finally, they have insulted me and my wife. All… Read Full Review
