Pros: The car was comfortable and dependable.

Great longer-term rental
Pros: Need a large vehicle for a month. Most affordable options were off-brand rental agencies with very old (10+ years) vehicles. Avis offered almost new vehicles at the most affordable prices if you rented by the month
Cons: Cat wasn’t washed at pick-up but interior was clean.

Fast but service could've been more helpful
Pros: They were very friendly and got my car ready fast. The woman behind the counter was great. Very efficient too.
Cons: The seating area is very sparse and feels cold. The guy who brought my car around didn't help with luggage loading in spite of my having been in the hospital the night before, so that was disappointing. The Nissan Altima they gave me had little power and visibility was tough in the driving rain.

Great service and car
Pros: The Hertz counter and San rafael was amazing! They made it painless simple and easy to get in and out. The drop off was a breeze! The car was better than expected, great gas mileage, and no hidden fees. Five stars all the way around!

overcharged $79 in addition to already prepaid one day rental
Pros: the car I rented was fine
Cons: Picked up the car at 5:45 pm Thursday and asked if I can return the car after hours the following day (if I don't make it due to trafic in teh SF Bay Area), was told yes. Returned the car the following day at 6:15 pm with 5/8 level, which was 1/4 of the tank ABOVE what was recorded in the rental inspection form (3/8). I found out Hertz charged me $40.46 for not returning rental with the full tank (?), then $12 late fees, plus an extra day, all totalled $79. I send scanned copy of the vehicle inspection form to Hertz customer service. Apparently they are working on refund for late fees and gas overchages, but not the extra day. I must add that teh guy who processed my rental reservation was not happy with the daily rate I paid ($23.97), saying they don't make any money off it. NOT GOING BACK TO HERTZ EVER AGAIN!

Received booking confirmation, but there was no vehicle available.
Cons: I was relying on having a vehicle, and at the last minute I was left with nothing. All they offered was the phone number of a rental place over 20 miles away. I will never book through carrentals.com again. Forget Kayak (the UI sucks anyway). Book direct, it’s the only way to go.

Pros: Good vehicle
Cons: Too expensive for a daily rental. Additionally, I was overcharged when I returned the vehicle at LAX. I had to go to adjustment desk and have charges corrected reducing my bill by over $100. Not a positive experience.
