I had a rough time getting my car. We booked Hertz from Santa Ana to San Diego. I had the same reservation in both car rental locations. But I had to pay an upgrade in San Diego. I was also charged 4x my quoted price which was annoying. I don’t recommend the San Diego Airport Hertz for your car rental. It seemed shady.Reviewed 11 Jan. 2024

Way too expensive. Went with personal car sharing for 1/2 the cost. If major companies like Hrrtz don’t adapt, they’ll be the next Blockbuster Video storeReviewed 30 Dec. 2023

They had no cars I had to take an electric car it felt like it was bait and switch. I’ve never used an electric vehicle and no one showed me how to do it. Frustrating and had to go the charging station 3x the first two times apparently I wasn’t doing it right. Had to ask someone else who was at the station how to do it.Reviewed 26 Dec. 2023

Robert at the pick up office was not at all helpful. Apparently this rental was for San Diego airport in Tijuana even though I entered San Diego Airport and my flight information. Robert said oh did you use Kayak? This happens often and was going to charge 2X what my original rental was saying the taxes were higher. Almost $600 for 5 day rental. I told him I was a Hertz gold member he didn't even try to look it up. This was 8pm at night stranded at the airport with luggage etc. I declined and went next door to Enterprise and payed a bit more than my original reservation from Hertz. Disgusting customer service and trying to overcharge whe someone was in a difficult situation. I went.Reviewed 15 Dec. 2023

Unfortunately the truck was not cleaned very well. Peanut shells were found throughout the cabin and it was clear someone had smoked cigarettes prior.Reviewed 30 Sep. 2023

1) there were no vehicles available upon arrival. I waited and other customers ran over and jumped line. The attendants weren’t staying around long enough to regulate. 2) the vehicle was smoked in, I tried to reach out to customer service over the phone and the rep did not take my info or care. It smelled horrible but I couldn’t wait for another vehicle since there were none and needed to leave. Horrible!Reviewed 18 Nov. 2022
