Hertz should hire more employees at this location. This is not our first time renting a car from this location. The first time they ran out of cars and we were not able to get a car even though we had reserved one online. Most times the place is packed and the couple of people there seem really overwhelmed. More than one customer did not get the car they reserved or were charged an additional amount because they did not have the car that was supposed to be available (our experience this past time).

drop off was easy

Cons:

I made a reservation for a compact vehicle. When I arrived at the hertz location to pick up the vehicle, I was told that all of the compact vehicles had been taken. My only option was to upgrade and spend more money that wasn't exactly in my budget.

Cons:

First they wanted to give me an unwashed and uncleaned car. The second car looked like somone spilled something (hopefylly not bodily fluids) on the pessenger seat. The counter agent told me that they cannot detail the car. From the outside the car was scratched, scraped, dinged, felt like a rent a wreck for half the price. It took over an hour to get the car and get on my way

At dropoff in Los vegas, they tried to overcharge me even though I had a written receipt from pick up. They wouldn't call pickup location to confirm my receipt until I made a fuss. Wouldn't apologize for the false overcharge, just said the computer made a mistake. BAD CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE!!

KAYAK

Pros:

good on gas.

Cons:

Thrifty is crooked -- no business competing head to head with the majors. FALSE ADVERTISING: exact same rate minus $1 vs competitors, BUT Thrifty DOES NOT include LIABILITY like all the others (I had to pay $12day), AND Thrifty has a mileage cap -- NEITHER of which was discoverable at time of booking, no thanks KAYAK!!! My $60 2-day rental wound up costing me $127, plus $25 in lyfts going the extra distance to the branch location. I am a sucker -- don't you be too! Hertz may seem $10 or even $20 more for comparable, but it's still a deal if you're going to drive more than 100 miles per day and don't have your own car insurance. To top it all off, the crooked guy who handled the return tried to gouge me for an extra 5c per overage mile -- he pointed to excess miles at 40c/mi and i said waitaminute, it's 35. he said, "no that's what he told you..." except i hadn't said he'd told me, he was just trying to get away with it. then he said "ok, i'll put it back..." again, admitting it had been 35c until he tried to gouge me on the spot. by far the most bare-bones rental i've ever gotten, at twice the usual pice -- not even power windows or locks!!! Absolutely crooked -- BEWARE.

Top tips for renting a car in Pasadena

  • Depending on your itinerary, you’ll find that renting a car in Pasadena will offer you more convenience compared to using other modes of transportation. Pasadena is a beautiful city, and there’s no better way to take it all in than being able to drive wherever you wish. Once you choose your car from Pasadena car rentals, you’ll have the flexibility to drive to Disneyland Park, 35 miles away, or cruise around the streets of Hollywood, just 15 miles away, with ultimate flexibility.
  • If you use the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you’ll find the rental car offices next to the airport, and several Pasadena car rentals are authorized to pick passengers at the airline terminals using shuttles. Car rentals in Pasadena, including Hertz, Alamo, and Dollar, can pick you up at the Rental Car Shuttle sign outside baggage claim. If you use the Hollywood Burbank Airport, you’ll find a pick-up and drop-off location at the Consolidated Rental Car Facility. You’ll find the entrance on Avenue B, which you can access through the Empire Ave or Hollywood Way airport entrances. To get to the customer service center, use the elevated walkway adjacent to the valet center.
  • Like the rest of California, using hand-held mobile devices when driving is prohibited, so if you must use your phone, make sure it’s in hands-free mode. Navigating through the streets of Pasadena is relatively easy, although traffic is quite notorious in Los Angeles. Still, be wary at intersections as pedestrians have the right of way and be on the lookout for cyclists.
  • Depending on where you’re going, the 110, 210, and 710 freeways can be quite congested during rush hour, which spans from 7am to 9am and 4pm to 7pm. Pasadena weather is sunny nearly all year round with minimal rainfall, so you're not likely to worry about bad weather.
  • Book your rental car in Pasadena at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Pasadena are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average
