The pickup and drop-off process was incredibly stressful, as the staff was slow and not very helpful or direct in their instructions. When I went to drop off the car, the staff had put a cone in front of the entrance and signaled that I needed to park on the other side of the street, causing me to go 40’ out of my way in gridlock traffic.

Despite having what seemed like not enough offices workers for the amount of rentals they had to process, the staff was pleasant, hard working, and efficient. The Parking Garage that the Hertz was located in was conveniently located and easy to find with the signs that they had out. I will say that with the amount of cars that were in the parking garage that were not a part of the rental area created some significant traffic moving cars around to give to customers, and for me as a driver getting in and out of the garage. That being said, this will probably become my new rental location due to this experience

The individual who helped us pick up the car in Brooklyn (Dean St.) couldn't have been nicer. He provided a great experience even though they were quite busy. I would definitely use them again.

I showed up at my rental time, then waited in line for 45 minutes, only to be told (completely unapologetically) that they can’t honor my reservation as they’ve run out of cars. This, on a holiday weekend, when I was due to pick up my parents at the airport in an hour and had no time to find a back-up plan. The place is so poorly run and the manager has no business being in her position. She’s disorganized and unprofessional, and tried to blame the issue on the fact that I booked on kayak! Worst rental experience of my entire life, and in talking to people since, I learned this is a regular occurrence there. No one should rent from this Hertz, ever. There’s a 50/50 chance you’ll find yourself stranded.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 05
They did not have the car size I rented (no one notified me before I arrived). The car was old, there was no new safety technology in the car. The tire pressure was off 20lbs (extremely dangerous). The easy pass didn’t work, and the weekend hours are a nightmare. Terrible location.

The vehicle size I had pre-paid was not available when I arrived; I was offered a larger vehicle which was too big, or a smaller compact SUV or a regular vehicle. I was able to manage with the compact SUV (Kia Soul which is one I had previously tried to rent unsuccesfully for another occasion) but it was a very tight fit for the trip planned. Hertz (or any rental company) should make it known in advance to customers when a specific vehicle size is no longer available. Because it was pre-paid, I was unable to get a reduction on the payment. I was accomodated with Gas, but it was not really an equal compensation. Again, I liked the customer service reps who tried to help, and the SUV despite being almost too small, was fun.

The car was great and super clean. The gentleman who helped check us in was really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, when we checked in he was the only person working and thus there was quite a long wait for us to check in but as soon as he got to us he was really efficient.We called to extend the car by a few hours and when we went to return the shop was closed with no drop box or instructions of what do to. I was able to get in touch with someone who was very helpful and told me to return in the morning. When I returned the following morning there was a massive line of cars to the point that we were all pulled up in the street, blocking traffic. A helpful passerby helped to direct traffic to clear the obstruction from the road, as no one from either rental agency was addressing it. Eventually and gentleman came out and told me to simply leave the car and they would deal with it. I did so, but there was no formal hand off or drop-off process.

The staff was very nice and got me a car that was clean and comfortable. They explained what was included and what was additional with patience and clarity. They were also very friendly.The car's oil change indicator was triggered when I picked up the car. The car's tank was also only filled halfway upon pickup. I expected the tank to be full when I picked up the car, so that was very disappointing.

The staff in BK was incredible, the car was excellent (and larger than what I thought I paid for, which was really helpful)When I arrived there was an issue with the scanner; my name didn't pop up when I returned the car, and as a result I had to wait around while they figured it out, but no one ever explained the issue to me.

The reservation said we didnt need the credit card present, but when we arrived they said we needed it. Ended up spending hours trying to find an alternate solution and we were extremely late arriving at our destination. This is not a complaint against the workers, just against the confusing policy.Let us reserve with debit cards or photos of the credit card, especially if you’re gonna say we dont need the card present

Front desk was friendly.I found the previous renter's paperwork in the front with a random receipt. It makes me wonder how well they sanitized the front car if they left those items. Just in case, I wiped it down myself for my own comfort.

The staff was fast, efficient and very friendly. The entire pickup took 5 minutes and drop off took 3 minutes. They were great.It would have been nice if there was an after hours drop off possibility since the site closes at 5pm but I understand that’s difficult at this time. In the end we made it back 5 minutes before 5pm, thankfully.

Staff were very friendly at both locations, and efficient.I had a Chevy Equinox, drove it entirely normally (no speeding), but an hour into my journey I received a message that said 'engine power reduced' with no explanation. That's a car manufacturer issue, not Enterprise's, but it only had 3,000 miles on it, so it was alarming.

Our rental car stopped working, and instead of helping, Avis did everything possible to make the situation worse. They basically left us stranded waiting for endless hours until a tow truck came to us. I will never be renting from this place ever again. It was a total nightmare.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 31
We got a brand new minivan for our rental but the AC was broken. Our kids were so hot that they got sick. We then were able to exchange for another minivan. A month later, the car notified us that there was an issue with tire pressure. We had to drive half an hour to an airport to swap out yet another car. Now that we are back, we are overcharged by about $8,000. So I have to call Avis to sort this out.

The car smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. I was in a hurry, and the attendant walked away after giving me the keys, so I didn't have time to find someone to see if I could exchange the car. However, the smell was so strong we had to drive with the windows down the entire 4 hour trip.

They charged me the wrong price (over $600 more). They told me they'd fix this but still have not. The display was broken (kept restarting), including the backup camera, which is a safety issue. And then the battery died. They couldn't get a towing truck there for 4 hours. And refused to book me a Lyft to the airport. I had to pay out of pocket, and we'll see if they refund me that price, or if I have to do it through my credit card company. Literally went wrong every step of the way, and they handled it terribly every step of the way.Everything

Eventually I got a car. It ran fine.Counter staff tried to up-sell me on everything. Initially, he told me that there were no cars like what I reserved. (I reserved a compact) tried to get me to take a pickup truck or sports car for significantly more money. told me that the extra insurance I purchased wasn't worth anything and that I should buy their extra insurance on top of that. He finally "found" a car (larger than the one I wanted) and told me the wrong floor of the garage to go and get it. This all added 20-30 minutes to the pickup process. Inspecting the car was difficult because the garage was too dark to see anything. After leaving, I noticed a dent on the roof, dirty seats, and a slight smell like someone had been smoking in the car but then it was covered up with an air freshener. Also, their tolls policy is written strangely, possibly to convince you to opt into their overpriced unlimited tolls service.

Staff very helpful.Not many people working, so line moved slowly. But it's a pandemic. That was probably just a safety precaution, which is appreciated.

The car itself was fine, I had no problems with it.I had been isolating for two weeks before traveling to see my father, who's over 65 and has asthma. I had called to learn about the rental process in advance, and was told I'd only have to come inside the office to sign the paperwork, so I thought that was safe. My rental was at 7am, so I'd be one of the first people in the office in the morning. However, when I arrived, there was someone else in the office (I'm not sure if it was someone who had just returned a car, or maybe a manager or someone working in the hotel) having a long and very loud chat with the rental agent, both unmasked, for at least 10 minutes. The rental office is very small and didn't look like it had any air circulation, so I decided that I would hold the door open when I went in, because being in a small, enclosed space where someone else had been laughing and talking loudly, unmasked, for the previous 10-15 minutes, did not feel very safe to me. However, the rental agent asked me not to hold the door open; after I explained my concern, he said I could wait outside the office while he took care of the paperwork, which I was grateful for. However, when he called me inside again to give back my driver's license, he started telling me about how I shouldn't be worried about covid, and kept telling me that for the next 5 minutes as he finished processing the rental. I ended up being inside that office with the door closed for about 5 minutes - not a lot of time, but it didn't feel safe to me given the long and loud unmasked conversation I had just witnessed, and how the agent kept telling me not to be worried about covid. I now have to wait to get tested and potentially isolate from my family, because we aren't comfortable with the risk of exposure from that interaction. I understand not being worried about covid oneself, but I'm frustrated by that rental agent's lack of regard for my boundaries and concerns.
4.0 Okay2020 Dec 14
Staff was cordial, car was clean.I had to wait 90 minutes for a car to arrive despite having a reservation. I understand that when demand is high cars are hard to come by, but is it not possible to alert/text people with reservations to this so they don't show up on time and then have to stand in the cold for indefinite periods of time? Given the pandemic, many nearby businesses are closed and it may be uncomfortable/dangerous to wait inside a nearby coffeeshop or store. I also found drop off extremely confusing - the Budget entrance at BWI was closed, and the sign directing cars to AVIS on a piece of computer paper was only visible/ readable if you got out of the car and walked up to it.

II got to to the car rental line and I had to wait over an hour with to pick up my car: I rented numerous cars with much larger lines and never had to wait like this. I feel like the staff didn’t care and they don’t value the customers time.

The williamsburg location closes at 5pm and does not offer after hours drop off. When I booked the car on kayak, it said I could drop off in the evening (9pm) which was not the case and I ended up having to drop it off at LaGuardia airport. Had I known I’d have to go to the airport, I would’ve booked a different location or company. I picked up the car at 8am on Friday, and Thrifty williamsburg didn’t open until 9am on Saturday. I asked if I could arrive at thrifty first thing at 9am for the return, and she said no it would be a whole additional day charge as that would be 25 hour rental. Going to LaGuardia to return the car was inconvenient and unnecessary

I like that they fixed the problem when i arrived to the closed location with no vehicle. I Drivo representative found me a car at JFK location but it was a big set back for my road trip. Overall i was thankful to still get a car last min for my family trip and i still got the same rate which was good.Being advise before hand it would have save me a lot of time and less run around if i new the coney island location was closed. But all in all it worked out.

NothingI had a sketchy feeling about booking this through Kayak (it was way cheaper than other providers in the same area) so I called ACE Rent a Car directly and they told me that this location is completely out of business... thank God I called before I showed up there. I don't think I would ever book a car rental through a service like Kayak again if they aren't aware of what locations are out of business ... I ended up booking directly with a different rental company so I didn't have to worry
