Pretty much everything. Drop off at MUC is excellent, takes just secondsHertz office at Dreispitz in Basel is hard to find. Signs lead to a carwash, not to the office. The vehicle had two tires inside, taking up the entire trunk space. The guy at the office was telling me unbelievable stories that I have to carry those tires with me. Fortunately in another Hertz office they gladly took those tires from me.

Great car, nice staffEverything about the rental went smoothly, the car was clean and comfortable.It was a bit confusing to find the rental place, since Basel airport has a french side and a swiss side. Of course it's not Hertz's fault, just pay attention if you're renting in Basel airport. Another point is that we paid in advance for a second driver and ended up not using it - would have been nice if there was an option to add another driver in the middle of the trip.

A choice of carsI selected the wrong pick up location and couldn't change it. However 6th allowed an alternative drop off location foc. Slow collection of car due to slow customers ahead of me. Too many choices at the desk at hiring time

Didn't realize that there wasn't an easy way to get from the airport to the downtown Sixt location. And then when our flight was late and we couldn't get to the downtown location before they closed, we couldn't transfer our reservation to the Sixt airport location because we prepaid through kayak. We ended up paying for an additional car for one day and then we had to drive back to the city the next day when the downtown location was open to get it all straightened out. It was kind of a pain.

Bright and shiny red Fiat 500Loved the red Fiat 500, people were kind at Sixt and very helpful. Thanks for all.

The original car I was given had a slow leak in a tire. A warning light came on indicating low tire pressure. I filled up the tire, but even though I didn't drive it for the next couple days, the tire continued to lose air. Ended up having to swap the car. Besides THAT inconvenience, I received an email from SIXT wanting to know how *I* had damaged the car! Not nice, and definitely an unpleasant experience.

Super easy pick-up. Drop-off on Sunday evening was a bit difficult as they have few parking spaces available - it was a tight squeeze to leave the car.

At drop off , Barbra, customer service extremely rude when I asked her why the extra charges, she kept saying she didn't care and it's not her responsibility when I questioned the extra charges
4.4 Okay2017 Jun 29
Not AmusedThe car was newit wasn't the car I had booked. I booked a compact like a VW Up or similar, manual, for 143 and ended up getting a massive Skoda Rapid wagon, automatic, and had to pay almost double the price for it at 217. I had no time to argue. But I got thoroughly ripped off. Will stick with Hertz

Car via Hertz did not have a full tank! Filled it up for 8 CHF, No compensation. Was requested instead to fill it up to the same "not full level of 7/8". Poor customer service! Avoid Hertz at Basel!

The agent at the airport station was very helpful.We had booked to pick up our car on Monday, Apr 5, but the station was closed because it was Easter Monday. So we had to haul our luggage across town to the airport station where our reservation could be honored.
