Nice, efficient staff/pickup. Perfect size of car.Confusing to find right place to drop off. Had to ask staff at a competitor's counter. Would have been helpful to have had signs posted on all sides of the Dollar "hut" directing customers to Hertz and how to get back there, since alreary passed.

I prepaid for a intermediate SUV. When I arrived at the counter I was told there was a 30 minute wait for cars. Then I was told there are no intermediate SUV's available and I was given a Toyota Camry. When I asked about the price difference, I was hastily told by the agent (who was unapologetic) that she could not help me and that I was to go the the counter at the return center. At the return center, the line was very long and moving quite slowly. The airport shuttle arrived and I had to get out of line and was never able to have my rental charges adjusted. I was legally contracted for and paid for a larger and more expensive rental. I am entitled to a partial refund.

Vehicle was nice and clean Got to counter, was told we had rented from another spot in Jacksonville, not the airport. Had to pay $300 more. Found out once home that a friend had that happen but the clerk told them there was a bus that would take them there. Very disappointed that our clerk that day didn’t do what was best for his customers.

I did not like anything the guy that helped us treated us like he did not care to even help us. Being in the customer service business i k ow how important is the customer and the different ways that we can make a customer happy even if we cannot help we still do everything possible to make it happen but at least trying but the guy treated us very poorly because our credits were low. He does not even know our situation we had the money to rent it. But you can rest assure i will never go through budget again.

I rented a car through KAYAK. I was not informed that my rental was canceled until I arrived to Hertz to pick up my car. They then informed me that there was nothing they could do to help me. The least they could have done was send an email to let me know that my reservation has been canceled. I also was charged for the daily insurance for the car even though I DID NOT RECEIVE THE CAR TO DRIVE.
3.9 Mediocre6 Aug. 2021
At no time during the vehicle pick up or on the contract did it say that I would be responsible for a vehicle break down. I wasted an hour on the phone with Hertz Roadside assistance just to find out I would have pay for the tire change and new tire. Had I known that earlier I would have saved myself both time and money. Plus there was a slight vibration from the front end when I picked up the vehicle. After both the spare and new tire where put on the vibration disappeared indicating to me that the tire was defective but Hertz still made me pay $165.00 for the tire change and new tire

My wife arrived at 12:55PM to pick up the car that was scheduled to be picked up 12:00PM. They had given out car away because we were not there at noon. No phone call, no email or text asking us if we would be picking up car. The only option they had was a larger car and wanted an additional $400 for the rental. My wife called me and she spoke with the Hertz agent. I said all would be fine if the rental amount did not include the up charge of $400 for the larger vehicle. He told me that would not possible and I would have to pay it and he needed to know now. At this point I got anger. He threatened to hang up on me and take away that car as well. Anyway, never been treated so rudely as a customer. I read every bit of information concerning the rental agreement, even booked another vehicle through Hertz to see what the policy was about not showing up. The Hertz agent told me that it was their policy to give car away 30 minutes after pick up time. I could not find this information anywhere on my original booking, email confirmation etc. I have been renting cars for 30 years. Nothing like this has happened before. Also, why didn’t they give the larger vehicle away instead of the car I reserved. Terrible experience and I will never rent from Hertz again….

This was one of the worst experiences of my life. The staff did not make me feel welcome at all. Made the reservation under my recently changed married name. License marches reservation name, but maiden name was on credit card I tried to pay with. They wouldn’t accept it because of the name change. I even had my old drivers license with my maiden name and they still gave me a hard time. I’ve never ever had to deal with this, and have rented other vehicles with the name change. The comments were rude, sexist, and almost racist due to my name change. My husband ended up having to come down and almost prove that I was married to him. I will NEVER go back to hertz. I’d rather walk than rent from them.

Do not, under any circumstances, book with Hertz. Spend the extra money to save yourself the dashed hopes and the misery of dealing with them. They are the worst. Didn't honor my reservation, so I was unable to get where I was going, resulting in a lost hotel reservation cancellation fee and a ruined weekend. Literally zero effort to rectify or apologize for the situation. Could not recommended against using them more.

Not what I orderedPickup and drop off procedures were very efficient and the Jax aiport on site drop off was very convenient.The ordering process is not as efficient and not communicated well at all. I got the special premier car and the total was $115.00 for four days. When I arrived at the Alamo desk, the "premier" car was a pick up truck. I have no issue with trucks, but it is not efficient nor convenient for a vacation vehicle and to get a different vehicle raised the price to $240. I could have gotten the same car cheaper had I not been drawn in by a price that probably doesn't even exist.

I told jer that's not right and she said let me check and then said it would be $135. She said the extra was for insurance. I told her I have insurance, so she finally took the extra money off. Beware of them trying to trick you like this. Also the car was nasty. Dog hair and crumbs everywhere.

The two young ladies we dealt with in person Saturday morning were very nice and apologetic, but there was nothing they could do with the fact there was not a Suburban or even equal vehicle for us.I reserved a Premium SUV over a month earlier (5/1/21) than the date we needed (6/12/21), including multiple phone calls on the Friday before (6/11/21) to confirm we would have the large vehicle we needed. Not only is it extremely frustrating to call in and wait on hold for 10, 15, 20 minutes to be able to speak with an Enterprise rep, the fact we weren't called the day or two before our trip to let us know the vehicle we reserved would not be there so we could try and reserve it somewhere else is really ridiculous. I have rented from Enterprise many times before and this was by far the worse experience we have ever endured.

Had the message alerted me to this new policy, I would have made arrangements in advance rather than being blindsided.

However, the car I booked was a “full size” suv and I received a Toyota RaV 4.The location and office was a bit run down. Also, I needed to provide physical proof of insurance, just to avoid being forced to take the Easirent coverage. These are documents that I had already uploaded to my rental profile, prior to arrival.

They are scam artistsThere was nothing to likeThey charge you an extra $350.00 to rent the car and also limit you to only a 150 per day. Even though it was reserved at one price and unlimited miles. They change your reservation and now you are stuck unless you decide to leave. They also take the spare tire out their cars so you would take their insurance. Avoid at all cost. Pay the extra money so you can get better service.

Dumb rulesIf you are a local renter,go someplace else and rent. These people say unlimited miles, unless you live in the state,then you are only allowed 150 free miles per day. They also want a $350.00 deposit. I guess they want to insure that they already have your money if you go over 150 miles per day. The rate per mile they charge after 150 miles is $0.55 . That could add up to some serious dollar amounts really quickly.

Don't believe the advertised reservationThe online reservation clearly stated unlimited miles. But when I'm standing at the reservation desk after I'm already at the point of no return I'm informed I am limited to a total of 300 miles, with each mile afterwards at $0.55 per mile. The whole purpose of the rental was for a trip that far exceeded the allowable mileage bringing my total out of pocket expense nearly four times the advertised rental rate. Even after I showed the manager my reservation and what was advertised he informed me it was a private company and that's their policy and if I didn't like It go somewhere else. Unfortunately I was stuck with no ride and no time to spare. I will not be using this service ever again.

What the Fog?The car seat came absolutely soaking wet. We had the hardest time with the car continually fogging up. It was fine when parked but as soon as we turned it on, nothing but fog. It was actually dangerous. Also, seats 5 but if you are the unfortunate one to sit in the back middle seat you will be uncomfortable. It is so high your head touches the roof and you feel squished even though there is room. Finally, we were told that the rental office opened at 5am. They don't. The 800 number only gave us grief and attitude.

Stay away from E-Z Rental: cars are not reliableThe only good thing about E-Z Rental was that after a horrendous experience, they gave us a brand new, upgraded vehicle. There was also a very nice lady working in the car lot who saw my family with young kids waiting and gave us all a free bottle of water.We had an absolutely horrendous experience with E-Z Rental. First, we had an extremely long wait to get our vehicle, at least 45 minutes. Second, they gave us an unreliable car. Sitting in the passenger seat, I could feel intense vibration in the vehicle. I said something to my husband about how uncomfortable it was. But we pressed on, we thought this is what we got for trying to save a little money on a rental car. But no amount of savings is worth putting my family's lives at risk. As we continued on the vibration continued to get stronger and stronger. It was so bad, I finally called E-Z Rental Roadside Assistance. She could hear the vibration through the phone and said we should get off the road immediately. We got to an exit, got to a gas station, and asked what they would do. She patched us in to the Jacksonville airport location. It was 9pm at night and thw employee there said there was nothing he could do until the next morning and that they couldn't pay for our hotel. Basically we were stranded with an undrivable car and no hotel, 3.5 hours from our final destination. My husband called AAA and they came to change our tire. The mechanic said he was absolutely shocked that a rental company would give us a car with a tire in that condition. The inside of the tire was completely shredded. I shudder to think what would have happened to my family if that wheel had popped on the expressway and we lost control of our vehicle. My husband then drove our car back to the Jacksonville airport with the donut on it at 6am so he could be there when the manager got in. They gave us half off our rental car which basically covered our hotel for the night and our AAA membership which covered changing the tire. I'm shocked that they weren't able to do more for us, given the fact that they put my family's lives at risk and then weren't willing to pay for our hotel when we were stranded at night, still far from our intended destination. I will never rent from E-Z Rental again.

Car hire excess insurance in Jacksonville

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Jacksonville car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Jacksonville.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Jacksonville car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Jacksonville

  • Enjoy some sunshine at the beach, explore St. John’s River, and discover the city of Jacksonville conveniently by opting for a hire car when you arrive in Jacksonville. A car will allow you to reach all the remote destinations and provides the ultimate flexibility travelers are looking for. From the zoo to the Bank Field Stadium, a car can cover any distance easily.
  • When flying into International Jacksonville Airport, the car hire services are located next to the baggage claim area on the lower level of the terminal building. From there, cars in all shapes and sizes from renowned companies like Avis, Enterprise, or Hertz can be rented and quickly picked up only a short walk from the service desks. The I-95 N will take travelers directly into the heart of Jacksonville in less than 20 minutes.
  • When driving in Jacksonville, bear in mind the Move Over Act, which was enforced in the state of Florida in 2002, which means that drivers need to move into the next lane or slow down to 20 mph when an emergency vehicle is blocking the lane. In Florida it is also allowed to turn right at an intersection when the traffic lights are red, provided no one is entering the intersection at this point. The Stop-4-Way rule means that if four cars come to an intersection and there is a stop sign for each car, the first car to arrive has the right of way. Make sure to reduce speed and approach intersections carefully, as other drivers might perceive they were first to reach the intersection and venture in.
  • Drunk driving is an absolute no-go in Jacksonville and police enforcement is very strict in the entire state. Fines, confiscation of vehicle, and suspension of the driver’s license are possible consequences at alcohol levels of .08 or above. Make sure to not drink and drive and, especially at night, always keep your headlights on.
