No E-cigs... BS
Cons: I'm a vaper (e-cigs) and own a vape shop traveling on business and pleasure many times using different car rentals. Never had any other car rental charged a cleaning fee because it smells like flavored vape. Dollar = $100. WTF

7 Feb 2016
Pros: I was immediately given a different rental after I discovered very noticeable cigarette smoke smell in the original rental vehicle.
Cons: I'd like the Counter agents in Milwaukee ti smike, be friendlier, more approachable. They were helpful in being very expeditious with the transaction process. Returning the vehicle was a bit time consuming. There was a line of at least 3 cars. The agent said there was a computer glitch. dropping off a rental car is one of those things that must be done in a very timely fashion as most travelers are pressed for time and need to get to the terminal,

Well never use this company or recommend it
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I had a reservation but my flight didn't come in until 6:45 so I wasn't sure I'd make it to the car rental before they closed at 7. I asked the lady if that would be ok for us to be a little bit passed 7, she responded by saying that they close at seven and that I should look for a different car rental. So I did and enterprise was amazing!

Rental Car - Dollar - You have no one with compa
Pros: Stuart I was not aware that Hertz owned dollar ? I have been Hertz Gold member for many years. Member 41226983 …. I would have rented from Hertz but your rates were higher than anyone else. ! I want to tell you just how missed off you made me. To the point I will never use dollar and I will go out of my way to make sure other no about your service!!!!!! If you really want to know more you could include your telephone number. Issues when booking through Kayak first car was to picked up Milwaukee and dropped on the 24 at O’Hare airport Chicago. We put in the drop as O’Hare and the print out listed midway abbreviated. The manger and young girl that should not be a manager with Dollar Milwaukee WI airport told me there was nothing she could do to help and for tme to change the drop to Ohare would cost me another $300. The car by the way was terrible and un-save the wipers smeared so that you could not see in the pouring rain. After repeated calls I could not and was not told that you had a corporate office to take this up with ! I finally reached a less than articulate manager with your corporate CS office in OK. She responded the next day telling me the same thing that would not work with me or could make any changes. !!!!!! I had to cut my meeting short yesterday and drive to midway return the car –pushing me late to make my flight out of O’Hare. Then I rented another car for about $40. And returned this car to OHara airport. Your service took over 25 min for me to check the car in . I can be believe you guys eve want a survey . I find nothing good about your company!!!

Easy and Priced right
Pros: ability to find a price and reserve the car online.
Cons: Not knowing what car I was reserving. Of course it was the smallest car made!

18 Apr 2016
Cons: Was caught off guard with some squirrely additional "security charges" even though using a Visa branded card. They said they had to run a check that hit my credit score, then when I got my final charges, there is an added $30+ dollar charge that I'm still trying to figure out. (I dropped the car off early and only got my receipt by email). Whole thing feels like a scam.

Fine print
Pros: Car was great, man working behind counter was clearly cranky. My biggest surprise was that the car did not have unlimited mileage which luckily we stayed under but only because we motified our trip. We travel all over the world and often for business as well and never had these restrictions. Didn't see any warning upon booking about this restriction either:(

Lousy customer care
Pros: I liked that I could go online and secure a rental.
Cons: I didn't like that there was an attempt to take money off my card for the rental ahead of time even though the site said that I could pay when I picked up the rental. I didn't get the rental cause I needed a major credit card. The site doesn't tell you this. Had I had enough money in my account for the rental and then couldn't get the rental I don't know how much time it would have taken to get my money back. The agent at Enterprise said that they don't know what is on Kayak or price lines site and could not help me.

Simple with extra
Pros: The people were very nice and organized. They knew who I was when they saw me. I upgraded for free as they did not have a model I reserved. The vehicle was in good condition and pretty new. Drop off was even easier. I pulled in stopped, they took the keys and away I went. I didn't even half to fill up with gas.
Cons: I had to pick some trash from some spots. Not a big deal. Very clean otherwise.

Pros: We arrived on a late flight, and went to get our car at 11:00 PM. I wasn't sure if we had rented a large enough car to hold all of our luggage + a car seat. The woman who helped us to our car was so patient and understanding and offered other SUVs and vans she had available. We ended up staying with the Full-Size car we originally had, but she walked around with me for about 15-20 minutes telling me about the sizes of the other vehicles we could choose from. She was so helpful! When we returned the car it was as simple as pulling up into the garage, smiling and handing the man our keys. We always rent with Enterprise, and this is why. Thank you!

Cons: Was told the Low pressure light was on when they gave me the car but told not to worry as it was only off by a pound. At the time I thought no big deal and I was in a bit of a hurry but found while driving on the freeway that was very uneven that it was hard to tell whether or not I had a flat tire because low pressure indicator was always on. I did actually Paula at one point to check the tire because of the way it was responding to the road conditions. They should definitely make sure if that light is on to correct the issue before releasing car. Overall though it was a nice car.

Really nice brand new van

Got what I wanted - Confused by execution
Pros: Car was great. Hertz was great. I was happy that my reservation was in place at my arrival, and the price matched what I was quoted by Kayak.
Cons: Hertz did not charge the full amount to my credit card at the time of my reservation on Kayak. Whether it was because the rental included an extra 5 hours, which counted as an extra day, or not, I don't know. In any case, Hertz records showed me returning the car Sunday at 10 am, when my Kayak receipt showed me returning Sunday at 3 pm. When we finally confirmed that I had been charged for a full three day booking, and then added on the amount I would be charged for a fourth day summed up to my Kayak agreement, all was well. It was an extra 15 minutes of hassle at the start of the rental that I wish I had known about in advance.

A simple process
Pros: It was so easy to quickly rent the vehicle, which is exactly what I need after a long flight. The car was in good working order, and there where not issues while I drove it. The only real issue I had with the whole process was trying to find out the daily charge for being under 25 and renting a vehicle. I was unable to find it online, so I had to wait until I was at the desk to find out the exact cost.

Nice small car.
Pros: The car was a nice small car and drove very well. The heater worked fine as did the cruise control. The price was great.
Cons: There wasn't much trunk space - but we only had one large suitcase. There also wasn't too much space in the back for passengers, but we only had one person in the back once for a short distance, and that worked fine.
