Very big problem We made an initial reservation for drop off at Carcassonne. When we got Bologna the woman (nice) said we could have a better price if we changed reservation to my wife’s name. So we did. We got to Carcassonne and a different woman called from Bologna Enterprise and said we must bring the car back to Italy. Very upsetting. Obviously that was impossible and not what the original reservation was. We left the car at the enterprise office in Carcassonne at the airport. A very friendly professional woman named Melissa that worked for Enterprise helped us. She was great. We recorded the conversation. She made a phone call and the person she talked to said there may be an one time drop off charge that could be as high as 400 euros and that she would have to get back to me. She gave me a signed copy confirming they received the car in good condition We exchanged emails. The. This morning I received an email from Bologna enterprise saying we had to bring the car back to Bologna. We have been an enterprise plus customer for years and have never been treated so badly. That is where things stand 10 AM Oct 3,2021 Thank you

Good car with awesome MPG.- Offered an option for an automatic for the same price as reserved manual car, made wife happy about that. - Was offered a hybrid, which was even better considering gas prices in Europe - Fast service- Office location was a bit off from map. - Walked further down the street, with vague directions, on where the garage is to physically pick-up the vehicle - Garage didn't have English-speaking people, so it was a lot of sign language

no. They original girl that assisted me was kind but made a huge mistake. She added insurance without informing me. When I called to let them know they said I had to talk to the manager. I went to talk to the manager, he began this conversation with harassment. He grilled me and accused me of the strangest things. He pulled out the girl and in front of me screamed that I was accusing her of lying and that I was telling him he had to fire her. I thought this was crazy because I did not believe she did anything intentionally. He then said what I was saying is that she committed fraud and I was accusing her of scamming me. The girl was crying and I refused to accuse her of any such thing. It was a mistake in my opinion. I was quite tired from my travels when I registered with her for the car. He continued to insist that I was accusing her of fraud and I needed to say it out loud. At this point, I felt so bad for the girl that I kept apologizing to her, but I would not say that I knew she put on the insurance because I would not have done that. I had a budget to stick to and I could not afford it. This whole scene was done in front of all the other employees and anyone walking by in the airport. Unfortunately, I suffer from PTSD and I could not take anymore , I was finding it difficult to breathe. My daughter interrupted the scene and I had to walk out...I could not stop myself from crying. I walked out and when I walked back in, he started to apologize and told me that he knew that the girl did not follow protocol and he explained why he knew. (something about no highlights on the costs on the receipt.) He even hugged me twice...I did not like this at all. He was abusive and then actually hugged me. He said that he would fix the problem then gave me his email to contact him. To this day he is not responding to resolve the problem. I am very angry and am considering taking my daughter's recording of the scene to social media.

In the dark garage with narrow parking space I found 3 damages (the staff marked 2 into the form saying that the one is regular scratches not considered / reported as damage). 0 damages were indicated in the form from hertz. Car wasn’t dirty, but covered by dust (even inside all over the instrument panel). Trip went well but during drop-off at Bologna an arogant staff reported a scratched plastic wheel cover - I didn’t even park close to the pavement so I couldn’t scratch it.. but I was unable to see this damage during car pick-up becuase of above reasons and there is also huge difference of judging the vehicle condition between the locations. So what is not a problem in Florence seems to be a problem in Bologna. Didn’t agree with my tesponsibility and awaiting contact back to find a solution. Bad experience

Wasn't sure what to expect...The facility was clean. Charges were clearly explained. My questions were answeredThere was no windshield washer fluid in the car. This should have been checked before I got the car. There was a long-ish wait to pick up my car.

Charged extraGood pickup, clean car, as expected until...They charged is EUR 50 extra when we returned the car...apparently the guy at the drop off found a bit of dirt on the back seats...which probably came from our 6 and 4 year olds putting their shoes on the seat when climbing into the car. This was a real surprise to us, and too late for us to pass a quick hover on the seat. What a shame that they don't tell you in advance....will not go back to Hertz, never had this issue with Avis or Europcar!

Rented car in Bologna and returned in Florence, and I feel I was scammed. Advice: Be very attentive to every minor scratch on the vehicle before you accept it. I wasn’t, and they charged me over $400 for an extremely minor scratch UNDER the front bumper (I would have had to lay on the ground to see it!). Be warned! Unscrupulous behavior that never would have happened in the US.

Drop off was a little unclear as to where to go and what to do with the car. Stalls extremely tight and difficult to park without possible damage.

Hard to find rental booth. Car greatCar was new, no problems with the car. Service was helpful.Hard to find the booth for dollar. There was not a booth for dollar. Had to find out that dollar uses thrifty booth. And hertz, thrifty and dollar are the same company. The kayak website gives you an option to buy an insurance for the rental. That is not valid for the car. Wasted money. Had to buy extra insurance at the rental.

Well..we did get a car.Pick up at the Bologna airport was brutal. We were the third in line, and it took us 90 minutes. Then walk outside for 200-300 yards to a confusing car lot situation. Wandered inside the fenced area for 10 minutes before we stumbled on the Budget office. Then it took another 20 minutes ....

I booked a 9 seater van. The lady at the counter refused to acknowledge the booking. She said that she don't know Kayak or CarRentals.com. She said that there is no car available as the booking was not done directly with Budget.com. It took me almost 40 minutes of negotiation and after that she gave me a 7 seater van, which I took it on no choice basis. This is the first time that such horrible experience has happened. I sincerely hope that Kayak will take up the matter with Budget and they can train the staff at their Bergamo (Italy) airport counter. I expect a compensation for the discomfort due to this attitude of the staff at the counter or some discount as I was given a smaller van.

DeceivedThe car was decent to drive around.I was shown a rate in dollars, but when I received the final bill it was in Euros which increased the price by fifty dollars. When I booked the car through kayak, it was only supposed to be like $24 per day, but in the end cost me nearly $95 per day.

very efficient car rentalthe car was clean and only had 8,000 miles on it. we asked for an intermediate car and received a Mercedes-Benz a160 which was a nice driving car. We had 4 passengers and the trunk space was a little small for luggage but we were able to manage as we only had 4 carryon bags and 4 backpacks. All in all it worked out well during our 30 day travel in Italy.the trunk was too small for 4 people's bags.

rip off extra costings v those advertisedpricing was far far higher than advertised when taxes and mandatory extras were added in... this should be made clear up front, its false advertising to show a price that is in effect almost 1/2 the actual cost....
