Dear sir / madam,

This e-mail is to inform you that the recent booking that you made with hertz has been cancelled as we could not successfully process the transaction with the details that you provided at the time of your booking.

Please ensure that the details that you provided at the time of reservation were entered correctly and revisit to make your new booking.

    This is the worse company ever. I make a reservation to pickup in San Francisco California Airport on September first 09-01-2016 and my car was charge for the amount of $USD 108.00 and was told that only the amount of $50.04 more will be take from my card...Re: "Your card has been charged USD 114.12 by HERTZ. The balance of USD 50.04 will be collected when you pick up the car". but, when I get there they do not honored my reservation and I have to paid $315.62 for new reservation. My confirmation code number is: H03801813A7 and I call to make a complain ant the agent tells me that I lost the first amount that was take from my card because this is the way when reservation is make online. So now I'm waiting for the Credit card received to do the complain with the credit card.
    I will never make any reservation on this Crazy Company!!
