Pros: I was the lowest cost vehicle of its class and we found out why.
Cons: We lost a complete day because it was not available. We traveled with our dog and when we returned the car the company charged us $100 because they had to vacuum some hair. They said it was a company standard but they did not say that when we rented. They were nasty and told us we should have read the entire contract before we signed. Who does that when there is a line of people waiting behind you? Bad service, poor company!

Cons: I didn't like that I came to kayak to rent the car, then was redirected to another site which changed the dates that I was looking to rent a car. It's amazing when you show up to pick up a car and they don't have a reservation for you for a month. hertz would not change the reservation, told me I had to contact kayak. No one was at kayak or the other site I was redirected to at 8pm at night. I ended up having to rent a car at the airport on the spot, and never got reimbursed for my other rental. Highly dissatisfied. Will never use this site or hertz for any of my future needs.

Easy with Technology
Pros: I used the online reservation and quickly and easy picked up the car at CAK with the assistance of a friendly and helpful associate.
Cons: There was condensation on the windows one morning and rolling the windows down and up did little to clean them so I had to stop and wipe them dry.

Good service for car pickup and drop-off. Terrible
Pros: Pick up and drop off was easy.
Cons: The customer service rep I reached when I called directly was absolutely terrible. I originally called to try to use points. The amount of points she quoted was above my expectations. When I said that and was attempting to ask why or whether there were changes I could make to reduce the costs, she hung up without saying anything. No im sorry. No good bye. This has become pretty typical for Hertz but is now to the point worth stating in a review. I ended up buying through Kayak. I'm seriously considering changing preferred rental car companies as this has become a theme with Hertz.

Great car but unexpected charges
Pros: I was given the option to pick between 3 cars. I picked the one I was most familiar with. It was clean, newer, ran well with basic options. I put a lot of miles on this car in 5 day's time.
Cons: I pre-paid for 70% of the rental through the initial Kayak transaction. At the time of pickup the remaining 30% was dues, which I paid at that time. I arrived to drop off the car and it was a day early. For some reason they hit me with a 3rd nominal charge. If something is prepaid, the gas tank was full, there is no damage and it was returned early, how can there be another charge??? Not real happy with Hertz right now.

Mystery in the rental details
Pros: On site pickup
Cons: I have never experienced a rental where the charges were most freely applied and most loosely explained. I kept having receipts shoved in front of me with partial charges (I'd already paid online through third party) making me feel like I was being hussled.

Clerk at pick up
Cons: The man on duty when I picked the car up needs customer service training. He was obnoxious and condescending. He blamed the company for multiple errors which is not impressive. In my opinion he should not deal with public But other than him, my car, the simplicity of reservations and drop off clerk were all fantastic!!! I come home twice a year. I will rent here again.

AVIS service was efficient and did not disappoint!
Pros: The vehicle, a Pacifica mini-van, was clean and ready to go! Early morning car droff-off was equally easy.

Pros: Enterprise works well with related companies at the Akron Canto airport so we had no trouble picking the car up after a late flight and easy drop off in the morning. Came with an ice scraper...which we didn't need but were glad to have just in case. Ohio... in the winter... you never know.

Pros: Nothing

Be sure to have a non debt/credit card
Pros: I was turned away carless because I didn't have a credit card. The same debt card ive used every year to rent a car on my trip to Florida was not good enough. My car was in the shop and I was stranded.

Mark at 259 West Market is inconsiderate
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Mark was "out of cars" and rebooked me an hour before pickup to the airport, which was inconvenient. He claimed it wouldn't cost any more. Instead, the airport had higher fees and taxes, and the person working there told me Mark regularly reschedules everyone to the airport when they have a one-way trip because he prefers round-trip rentals at his franchise location. I called Mark who refused to help me. Check-out person at the airport wasn't helpful either.

7 Aug. 2019
Cons: They did not honor my reservation. They did not have a car for me. Instead they tried to sell me a more expensive rental and then demanded I get the $100/ day insurance that is supposed to be “optio. I walked away with no car. I had to take an Uber to Pittsburgh instead. It was the worst experience.

Pros: I reserved a car two weeks before picking it up then was called the morning of to tell me there was no car available.
Cons: Do not let people book without available vehicles!!! So upsetting. My trip ended up leaving 5 hours later.
