Pros:NothingCons:We waited in line to get the car for almost an hour. They then told us they had none of the midsize SUV’s, which is what we rented. We were charged $200 to get a bigger SUV because we couldn’t fit our passengers and luggage in a car, which is the whole reason we reserved a midsize SUV. After an hour of all the waiting we go out to the spot out car was supposed to be and there was no car. We had to back inside and wait until the clerk could help us. They gave us a different car that was filthy and sounded like it was going to die the entire time. When we returned it we were charged 15% tac and that on top of the $200 extra for the upgrade we didn’t want but weee forced to take were more than the original advertised rental fee. I will NEVER use dolllar rental again.Reviewed 18 Oct. 2020

Pros:The address on the paperwork for the drop-off in Dallas was wrong. When we got there, there was a sign saying "no rental drop-off". Then a bit further away was a smaller sign hung on a fence with the address of the Hertz drop-off. This caused a delay in dropping off the car, good thing we were not in a hurryReviewed 28 Jan. 2021

Pros:The staff at the Dallas Love desk was very helpful after our flight was re-routed because of the ice storm.Cons:The Dollar rental customer support was unhelpful. We ended up spending over 4 times the planned amount because no one could “help” us. This was not a planned vacation that we had saved for, but rather an unplanned expense, we were going down to bring an ill family member home after they had a stroke on vacation. We were already on a tight budget and the car rental experience made at least part of the trip a nightmare. We were told the original deposit would be refunded but that has not happened so instead of spending under $200, we have spent over $400 and have two separate security holds of $200 each (we had to do 2 separate rentals, one day each in order to keep the bill under $500 not including holds)Reviewed 21 Feb. 2021

Pros:NothinCons:They could have had a car that I reserved a few weeks in advance. Could reimburse me for the money I spent on Uber going back and forth for a car. After she told me to come back in 4 hours. The counter person just shrugged her shoulder at me. Never again will I rent from themReviewed 13 Sep. 2020

Pros:I had to cancel the trip due to Covid travel concerns but was not refunded the money which created an awful customer experience.......Cons:Have self-awareness as a company of what’s happening in the real world and be flexible when travel restrictions are posed on people due to covid and let corporate greed rule the day!Reviewed 26 Nov. 2020

Cons:Everything was great except pick up at the Hertz counter. Took an hour in line. Only 1 worker for most of that hour, who took almost 25 minutes per person. I was 7th in line when I got there. Drop off was excellent.Reviewed 22 Oct. 2020

Not happy.Pros:The employees were decently friendly. Business was open late.Cons:In the past, I've been able to go and pick the car from the class I reserved. In this case, I reserved a convertible for a getaway vacation for my wife and I and unfortunately they assigned us a car. Not out of the norm, but I was disappointed. Also, the one we were given was absolutely filthy. I noticed that the drivers seat squeaked driving down the road. Also, the remote keyfob didn't work the entire time until I accidentally pressed the panic button in the Walmart parking lot. Protip: if you rent a Chevy Camaro and the alarm activates, start the car and it will stop. Thanks to the gentleman walking through the parking lot that felt bad for me for that one.Reviewed 19 Apr. 2016

FULL TANK SHOULD BE A FULL TANKPros:the people were very very nice BOTH at the AUS rental counter and when i returned the car.Cons:WHAT I HATE: I got the car with the gas at below the F (FULL) line. I took a photo of it. I am not familiar with this car so didnt know where the line SHOULD be. Returned the car with a full tank of gas the F line was well on the right side of the FUL line. i told the guy at the return and he said that was great. WHAT WAS GREAT ABOUT IT?? I SPENT MORE ON THE CAR THAN WAS ON MY AGREEMENT BY maybe $8 USD (which I questioned this at the counter, but went along with the difference) AND THEN SPENT MORE MONEY ON GAS??? *************This is not right and i took photos of the screen because i was annoyed. ALSO THERE WAS A PIECE OF SOMEONES NAIL IN THE DASHBOARD COMPARTMENT. also took a photo of that.... i would not have bothered if the gas issue would have been treated fairly.Reviewed 27 Oct. 2017
