Deceptive, Fraudulent Business PracticesCons:Three significant problems with our car rental experience: 1) After paying in full online with Kayak, we were billed again at pickup at the Hertz counter in the amount of $64. The counter clerk explained that every day she receives complaints about the extra billing and that there is nothing she can do about. We paid the $64 since we needed a a car right then; in effect, a hostage payment. 2) Our Hertz counter clerk urged we self-inspect the car for any significant problems. We did so and found only an aged, minor paint chip and some minor scratches on the bumper. We accepted the car as is with these minor damages. After returning the car in clean condition and with a full tank of gas, we received by email a damage investigation notice that there was the chipped paint and bumper scrapes. There should, of course, be no investigation of these issues since they existed prior to our rental. 3) After receiving the damage inspection email, I called Hertz's damage inspection manager Kelly Ann Boutilier. On the phone, Kelly Ann promised to look into the matter immediately get back to me the same day for resolution, since she was leaving for a 3 day trip. Kelly Ann did not follow through and get back to me as promised. Conclusion: Our rental experience was highly negative. Truly, this has been a flim-flam, con. At the moment, we are being billed $131.74 for the original charge, plus a second billing of $205.07. The original contract price was just $42.51/day x 3 days = $127.53. We are placing both charges with our credit card in dispute.Reviewed 2017 Jul 11

Base model cars and quick to charge for add onsPros:Nissan Altima was very good on fuel economy, they also had me on my way very quickly.Cons:Base model cars are uncommon at other providers but not at Hertz. I also was not able to use my rental due to weather challenges as the tires while legal were not sufficient for snow covered roads. The last thing was upon return of the car they were originally going to charge over the daily rate for an extra 30 minutes.Reviewed 2018 Feb 19

Cons:The car I paid for (full size) was not available in Halifax, NS Canada. They gave me a mini-van which worked fine. Lots of additional fees.Reviewed 2018 Sep 18

Pros:It was very easy to pick up and drop off the car. The staff member were very kind.Cons:However, I did not end up with the type of car I thought I had rented. They gave me the keys to a much bigger car than what I expected. Having never driven such a big car, it made me very uncomfortable at first. And they could not find another car to match my criterias, even though I had made my reservations a few weeks in advance.Reviewed 2017 Aug 11

Snow tires not includedCons:Be aware that snow tires are NOT included in your rental. I was quoted $260 to upgrade to a car with snow tires. In February, in Nova Scotia you would think they would be included.Reviewed 2018 Feb 12

Where are the electrical cars?Pros:I like the white colour.Cons:Bad fuel efficiency for a small car (8.8!), instead of compact cars you should have fuel efficient. And when will we be able to rent electric cars? Price was definitely more than advertised.Reviewed 2017 Jun 15

Pros:YesCons:The advertised price was $32 per day - no mention of insurance. When I collected the car I paid over $80. Insurance alone was $42. These hidden charges are bad. $80 per day for a car is excessive.Reviewed 2020 Mar 24
