Hertz Complaints & Reviews

Hertzfraudulent business

Shame I had to give one star just to comment; I would not have given any.
Recently hired a car for a funeral and on my return was informed that the passenger Tyre had damage. Hertz were good enough to send me photos, which clearly show all around damage to their cheap alloy wheels. So when I dispute the Hertz claim they Bill my card anyway; try and reply to the email-its a No Reply.
Such a scam; do not use this company.
PS; Hertz, can I have the old Tyre, as I did pay for it!

    Hertz Loyalty Customer Service,

    As a President's Circle member (ID [protected]), I have expressed my loyalty to Hertz by completing 42 rentals in 2019. Considering that we are in week 42, that means that I have completed, on average, a rental every single week in this calendar year alone. I clearly travel frequently and have my choice of companies from which to acquire a rental car. I have remained loyal to Hertz because the transactions are typically easy, quick and I can get the car that I prefer with little to no drama.

    Imagine my dismay when I realized at the last minute that I missed booking a car for pickup today (October 16, 2019) at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, CA. While I am not one to seek special treatment, I quickly dismissed any anxiety because I knew that Hertz would provide excellent customer service, especially to such a loyal customer.

    The bottom line is that I was sorely disappointed when the service representative explained that he could not help me in person and that I must book a car through the app. I complied, only to discover that a car for less than 48 hours would cost more than $330 because at 6:30 p.m., there "were no cars available". Yes, I am traveling for business and yes, this would be a business expense, but I am in the business of saving my company money and I was not about to be exploited simply because I had not reserved a car ahead of time. The rep then told me that if this car and cost were not satisfactory, I should try Avis instead.

    Uber won my business today.

    I now have to consider why I remain loyal to a company that doesn't have my back when I give them my business every. single. week.

    Disappointed and without a rental,

    Pascal Gentile

      Hi. Someone hit my car at the end of August. I was contacted by their insurance company saying the reservation had been made. Once I contacted Hertz in Memphis I never could get anyone to answer the phone. I live across the bridge in Arkansas and figured since the accident wasn't my fault...I wasn't spending my gas money to cross the bridge and have to find someone to take me. Regardless it took 3 weeks for someone to finally get back to me. Supposedely the regional manager of the Memphis area. Since September 19th I have been calling Hertz trying to get them to come get the vehicle. The vehicle was dropped off at my house with no signed contract. Actually I wasn't even home, my husband was. I have spoke with about 20 people from the 1800 numbers and none of them no anything or can help. The last guys name I spoke to was Terrance. He assured me last Thursday the car would be picked up and I would be getting a call. Here it is Monday the 30th and I still have their car and it seems like it is of no concern to them. Shame on insurance companies using people like this to do business with.

        Hertzcharged for insurance I said I didn't want

        Prepaid rental at Seatac airport. Very clearly said I didn't want insurance nor prepaid fuel. When agent said sign here, I questioned the charges. He said that was the deposit and fuel charge if I didn't return the car full of gas. I signed the contract. When I returned the car I was charged $293 for insurance. I talked to the manager at the rental counter who couldn't understand why I was upset.
        After all I signed the contract. He would review the videotape, but wouldn't let me see it. Just got off the phone with Hertz customer service. They offered to refund 50% of the insurance charge. I told them not good enough.

          Hertz - Moreno Valleycar rental

          Book a rental at hertz weeks before my daughters wedding for a premium large suv. The website said I would get a yukon or "similar" we'll after waiting 1 hour in waiting room they offered me a non-premium suv that smelled like weed and had bad wear & tear to it. I asked if they had something else, this is for a wedding, the sales person pretended to call someone then said no this is all we have. Then he quickly tried to process the transaction and he also increased the charge by adding "ldw" a special insurance they have for their cars w/out even asking me. I asked why the price doubled he said everyone gets this insurance and I would feel safer with it. I should of paid attention to the reviews... This particular location sucks! Hertz almost ruined my daughters wedding luckily, avis car rental at the moreno valley mall saved the day! Gave me a brand new suv, premium with all sorts of discounts... Thanks andy! Its crazy because I rented a jaguar at the riverside, ca location with outstanding customer service. But dealing w/ the moreno valley branch has made me change to a different rental company for now on.

            Hertzillegal activity

            Hertz is the most corrupted car rental company on the face of this earth. The social media support in the facebook page of hertz and their executive customer service never bothered responding because they knew they were at fault. Following which, I was a subject of (slander) by hertz's vehicle control department in spite of making all extensions and payments on time and having tangible proof of such payments. I wish I could sue hertz for defamation but I have more important things to focus in life. Do not rent car from hertz because after taking your money, they will tamper the paperwork in their computer system, so you would end up driving an illegal, unauthorized vehicle (which would constitute a "stolen" vehicle) without having any knowledge of that. Following which, they would threaten you to return the vehicle in spite of charging your bank account in advance. Hertz would deliberately do that so it would give them the opportunity to decline any insurance claims and you can also get arrested on the road as well. Hertz says in their facebook page - "we're here to get you there". What they mean by that is - "we're here to get you arrested, get your driver license revoked and get you into [censored] loads of financial trouble". Holding money from my bank account and letting me drive out with an illegal, unauthorized, uninsured vehicle is not only wrong - it is a crime.

              HertzUnprofessional incident

              I reserved a car through hotwire [protected] july 23-29th, premium car $328.28 pre paid Hertz confirmation J09836632F1. My flight arrive 230pm Detroit metro airport and I was unable to receive the car I prepaid for due to staff not knowing how to apply itinernary number. I waited until 5pm and was told I could not get the car I prepaid for and had to rent another car at a higher cost $468.00. I had my 3yr old daughter with me and as every person including the manager couldn't find what I had prepaid for with hotwire and through this mess, no one offered water for myself or my daughter. My refund for my orginial rental posted to my account 4-5 days later. This was a horrible experience and at the end of the day the manager stated I was lucky to get a car because they were out of cars. I will never rent through hertz ever again.
