Pros:

HYA Hertz were fine and helpful.

Cons:

PVD dropoff HERTZ was disinterested and didn't leave the booth. Perhaps afraid of catching COVID from customers? Prefer to have car checked by a liver person, to be sure NO damage, as you're holding $200 of my funds for just this reason. Don't hold the money if you cannot be bothered to look at the vehicle when it is returned. No damages from me, but I am disrespected and penalized for others' drivers damages when you cannot even be bothered to check -- Lazy personnel!

Hertz was great, very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

carrentals.com who co-booked the rental with Kayak, did not provide Hertz with my contact information. This caused confusion when they tried to call me to tell me the location I had booked the car was closed and to head to a different location. I could not be reached so I showed up at the closed location and had to then catch a cab across town to the open location.

Pros:

Car was clean.

Cons:

Reserved and charged for a full sized car. Told I was getting a full size car at the counter. The only cars that had were compact. We had to sit with bags on our laps for 10 hours because they wouldn’t fit in the trunk or at our feet. Needed to travel that day. Have to see if I can get my overcharge back. Don’t trust that you will get anything other than what they have on the 6 car lot.

Cons:

We returned the car via the after-hours drop-off - earlier than our rental was due. After checking our credit card statement we noticed that we had been charged an extra $100+ dollars. When I called to inquire, they had charged us for three extra days. Since there were no communications after the drop-off, we never would have known unless we checked the credit card statement. It felt underhanded and deceitful; I would not trust them again.

The experience was the worst one I ever had. They ran out of cars. I did a favor by taking it a day later so others who were in need could get a car - with the promise I could return after hrs since there was no way I physically could get there since I got the car late. I got there and no after hours drop off was available so after an hr on the phone with no solutions I had to change my flight. Will never use Avis again.

It wasn’t an issue with Avis, they were helpful. The problem was with Kayak as I requested a rental on an island and they rerouted me to another island without notice. I arrived to the island I thought I had booked on and arrived to no rental reservation. Kayak should understand the area they are rerouting to or not get involved at all. Unfortunately Avis will receive a bad review for Kayak’s lack of accountability and knowledge.
