Terrible ExperienceCons:My fault that I accidentally booked a reservation that picked in downtown Birmingham and returned to the Birmingham International Airport. I meant to pick up at B-ham airport and return to the same location, but apparently I selected the incorrect address. However, when I showed up to the airport, the Hertz representative was beyond rude and basically told me to F - off, that there was nothing she could do. The walk up rate she quoted me was $180 / day for a car. I immediately went to the Enterprise booth next door to Hertz and got a car for $34/day. By the way, I'm a Hertz Gold member and have used them frequently. Never again - terrible, terrible experience.Reviewed 19 Feb. 2017

Pros:The price of the rental.Cons:The car almost made me sick every time I had to drive it. It smelled very strong of cigarettes. There was no one at the drop off location or at the counter.Reviewed 9 Feb. 2021

Pros:The man at the service desk for the pickup was extremely friendly and personable, and the only reason I didn’t feel entirely cheated by my experience.Cons:There is no mention of the additional security deposit at any point prior to making the reservation, even if you pay for the vehicle ahead of time, and they will attempt to force you into paying a cancellation fee if you’re unable to cover the surprise $200 deposit. Make purchasers aware, before wasting their time.Reviewed 8 Feb. 2021

Cons:prepaid for vehicle rental. then was told at counter i would be charged another $5 and change for taxes which should have been included in the prepaid amount. then i check my credit card and there were a number of pending charges from hertz none of which should have been charged to the card. Once all the pending charges cleared out there was a $10.66 charge for what??? I am considering disputing this charge with my credit card company i never agreed to this and i prepaid for everything there should be no additional charges.Reviewed 15 Feb. 2021

Cons:I reserved this car for pickup at a designated location and at a designated time, and then also for drop off at a designated location and at a designated time. At no point during my rental exprience - online or in person - did anyone inform me that the location that I'd selected for drop off was actually closed. I am still stuck with this vehicle until the location opens back up (it has been two days). I have tried repeatedly to get assistance through Hertz customer service and it has been a nightmare. So far, the best information I've received is an acknowledgment that the company screwed up, but that they intend to charge me for the days I've been stuck with this car with nowhere to return it. I want a refund -- this has been nowhere near worth it.Reviewed 26 Dec. 2019

Cons:I somehow booked the wrong location, 30 min from the airport. They would not let me change it unless I would pay $155. So I had to pay $80 for Ubers and it was very inconvenient. I’m not sure I’ll ever use Hertz again and will probably book direct in the future vs using KayakReviewed 2 Mar. 2021
