Melbourne city office is niceAgent who helped us with the return was good. It was unclear why the amount we were told the rental would cost, and the cost the computer showed were different (not to our favor by quite a bit). He tried to find out what happened and made adjustments. Also told us about a great place to eat.Hertz seems to rely on the clients to take pictures of any car damages when they pick up the vehicles, and have those pictures to show the agents when returning the car. Very much on the honor system, which if it works is fine - just surprised that they don't have such pictures in the Hertz system tagged to each vehicle.

The carThe service - please tell people the name of the car park where they need to drop the car off! There are no signs until you actually are inside. We lost half an hour trying to find it in traffic. That really ocershaded our trip.

Return timelineI was supposed to return the car st 11:00 am but due to many reasons it was delayed by 45 mins. The staff earlier promised to not charge me when I spoke on the phone but on my return , I was charged an additional $22 which was equal to half the value. This is grossly Injustice

Downgraded car...Good service, and a nice car in the end but...the original size of car shown on your website was not provided (shogun sport or similar). Instead was offered asx (2nd booking confirmation from you guys). I took one look and knew there wasn't enough luggage space as we had 2 large suitcases an, 2 carry on suitcases and 2 small bags. I know the size of a shogun sport. The only larger car they had (which we could get all our luggage into Was an exec (Merc e class). Although they 'did a deal' I still had to pay more than DOUBLE to get a suitable car to meet our needs for the trip (an extra $40 A DAY)!!! Just about to book a car for our trip to the states. Won't be using kayak to book with again. Europcar said this often happens with regards to class of car when booked through a third party.

Reserved a 8 seater suv but thrifty refuses to give a car that is 8 seater even after showing proof of reservation. Receptionist said kayak has different code and that my reservation is for 7 seater. I feel cheated. We were 8 ppl traveling from us and I needed exact 8 seats. Will never do business with them. I actually want my refund for inconvenience.

Disappointed, terrible serviceDisappointed about the service and staff here. 
I rent a car from 11:38 11/11/2016, for 4 days till 15/11/2016; then ask for 1 day extension till 16/11/2016 and did ask for return car late at 5pm on 16/11 instead of 12:00pm. A staff said it was fine and didn't mention anything about the charge we need to pay after 12:00pm. 
I returned a car at 5:00pm on 16/11/2016 and was charged for 2 days extension and was told because any hours after 12:00pm was considered 1 more day rental. Another thing is that there was a cratched in the car before i took. when i returned, the staff went straight away to the cratched and told me to be charged for that. But i took some photos before i took the car , i told them about that then he said it's ok. so terrible.

They lady that i spoke with simple said i cant even extend it for half an hour and need to drop the car now.i never experienced that before

We were happy with the car and the staff were friendly.The only niggle we have was we had trouble with the call centre giving us the wrong opening time for the city store and having to wait quite a while to be served, however service was friendly and helpful.

Staff was fine - but the car as advertised was NOT what was produced, which was acknowledged. But there was nothing to do by that point as we had to leave.The car as advertised should be the car that is given. I gave up a cheaper reservation, closer to home for this one. Just wrong.
6.8 Good2020 Jan 04
The car was great and had no issuesI hired the car expecting to pay the quoted price on the website. Instead when I arrived to Avis with my itinerary in hand for the week ahead I was charged double by hidden fees for my being 23years old. Not a word was mentioned about by the website nor the staff until the keys were being handed to me and asked to sign the paper work. At that moment in time it’s too late to go through another rental agency or cancel plans so I had to bite the bullet. Please read all fine print and ask questions before you book.

- Location in the heart of CBD with easy access. - Drop off open 24/7. - Price.- Separate office counter and car park building (distance +/- 350 m) - Car not ready, had to wait another 30 minutes. - Cleanliness of the car.

Outsourced to unknown hire companyKayak website highlighted on airport pick up. Fail! SixT outsource to another provider who is off-site involving a bus ride away. Toyota Corolla or Similar reserved. Fail! Next level down Suzuki Swift provided. Outsourced hire company is so far removed from Kayak that they will not budge on the booking made to them. All of these caused a lot of friction with my partner! Just what you need when you start a holiday!

we had to wait for 30 mins for the pick up from airport ; van wasnt in a great condition, though usable for the 1 week trip. I have had much better experiences with Sixt in other countries and australian states, quite disappointed with my experience in melbourne.

First car given to us didn't have toll tag so was replaced with a smaller car after 10 minute wait. Car was fine for the price,Pick up at Melbourne Airport is very unclear, no indicators on the booking where to catch the shuttle, phone number on the website apparently disconnected.
6.0 Good2018 Jan 01
Price is reasonable, counter staff is friendly.NO contact telephone number on the voucher so I spent plenty of time to find out a right number to call the shuttle service. It is not good for a foreigner who was helpless at the airport.
