21 Jul. 2019
Cons: Overall the rental was nice, the only minor issue I had and it was probably due to high volvume, but the inside was not necessarily the cleanest but for what we needed it suffices. I usually get top notch from enterprise so I won’t fault them for this one transgression. I’d use them again

Didn't like the car, but everything else was okay
Pros: it was easy enough to pick up and drop off and when I changed my reservation to a different pick up location, the associate on the phone was very helpful.
Cons: Really not a fan of the Hundai Elantra. We had planned to get a compact car but when we went to pick up, the associate told us it was a "free upgrade" to the Elantra. I am seriously convinced the car was designed be someone who never drove a car before, especially in the rainy northwest. the angle of the rear windshield made it impossible to see out if there was any rain falling. Also the seats are not vertically adjustable, so It felt like I could barely see over the dashboard. Also the electronic interface was not the best when plugging in an iPhone. It would automatically start playing the music off my phone in alphabetical order, rather annoying. So my complaint isn't with Hertz directly, but that car... jeez.

4 Oct. 2016
Pros: The vehicle was perfect, the rental agents were very nice and professional.
Cons: When I went into the rental office to return the van I didn't see a large raised area on the floor covering cords, I tripped on it and caught myself from falling by grabbing a chair. The area was painted yellow but no warning sign. Last night the top of my thigh was swollen, my back and foot are sore. I think changes need to be made so that the area is safe. The person that assisted me said that people trip on the area all of the time.

18 Oct. 2016
Cons: Upon returning the car, I was asked for the key. I handed over the only key I had and was asked were the "rest" of the key was. I informed the assistant manager that this is the only key I have (without tag and any other attachements). She informed me that she need to confirm that I was given only 1 key without tag with the McCarran office or she need to charge me $400.

Watch Out for Online Rentals
Pros: Fairly good website
Cons: The website rental confirmation did not correspond to actual car availability. The rental confirmation did not actually exist. Had I not called the local rental office, I would not have found out there there were no cars to rent - and I would have been totally out of luck and stranded.

Top tips for renting a car in Tacoma

  • Explore every nook and cranny of Tacoma during your visit and rent a car when you get there. The city has plenty to offer from a casino to a car museum, plus the bay, and the easiest way to tick off everything on your wish list is by having the flexibility of your own four wheels. Travelers who would like to visit Seattle can also reach the city in about half an hour from Tacoma.
  • Located in Seattle, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is the nearest airport at only half an hour away from Tacoma. The airport operates shuttle buses to a nearby rental car center where agencies like Avis, Budget, and Enterprise offer vehicles for their customers. Pick-up points are either on the north or south end of the main terminal, right after baggage claim.
  • Driving in Tacoma can come with some challenges, as the city has steep hills, narrow roads, and icy roads can also occur in winter. When navigating down a steep hill, it is important to shift into a low gear and consider operating the car manually. If visiting Tacoma in the winter, adapt your speed and maybe even opt for snow chains, depending on how severe the weather conditions are.
  • Especially on the roads to and from Seattle, such as the I-5, Tacoma can face severely increased traffic during the usual weekday rush hours of 6-9 am and 5-8 pm. Traffic during rush hour tends to get worse the closer the week later in the week it is, with Friday often being the worst. For a hassle-free driving experience, choose to leave for trips outside of peak driving times.
  • Book your rental car in Tacoma at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
