Car rental.com is a scam. Don’t ever use them.Reviewed 7 Apr. 2024

Pros:Simple, limited-contact pick up and drop off.Cons:When I returned the car two days early, the staff at Hertz were unable to do a refund for those extra days. This isn't a criticism of Hertz -- just know that when you book through Kayak, they don't have as much flexibility for extending or shortening a rental. Note that this Hertz location does not do after-hours drop-off. You must return the car before closing time.Reviewed 10 Apr. 2021

Pros:The two ladies who checked me in were a delight to deal with. Very professional and personable as they went through all the paperwork and what not.Cons:My pre-paid 1pm reservation was for a Mid-size Car, and when I got there at 1:30pm they had rented my car and had no Midsize cars left, so I was stuck with an economy car that felt like I was driving a go-kart on steroids or tin can on wheels. That was total BS!! Also, they closed the location close to my house, but it is still listed on their website, Yahoo, Waze, Google, etcetera, so when I drove over there to swap cars, there was a sign on the keys drop box saying to drop off cars across town, at the location where I picked up the car. Again, total BS!! Then when I returned the car they ran my credit card before talking to me at all, and I wanted to use my debit car. When I asked to cancel the charge and put it on my debit card, she said it was too late, she couldn't do that. Third strike of total BS. Even if it costs more and is farther away, I will never again rent a car for Hertz!!Reviewed 10 Mar. 2021

Pros:Ease and speed of getting the car and returning it. no hassle there.Cons:Not worth the value. Turo and similar apps are renting cars without all the fees. The same car I can get for $40 daily. I don't care who gets my business but I'm shopping for the best price and value. This was too expensive for what it was.Reviewed 5 Nov. 2018
