Charged for 'express fuel'Cons:Chicago Midway -- the rental itself was not very clean on the exterior and the paint was pretty beat up. That aside, pick up wasn't exactly pleasant, but... That's sort of the norm with some airports in my experience. I was charged $15 over and above my original rate for something called 'express fuel.' My understanding is that if you use the car for less than 75 miles, regardless of the gas you put into it before returning, you are charged this rate. I don't have the slightest idea why they would encourage renters to put more miles on the car by punishing them if they drive <75mi, but that was the case for me. The aspect that bothered me most was that the attendant made no mention of this surcharge when I returned the vehicle. So yeah, topped off the tank, no damage to the vehicle, returned well before the time I rented it for, but still was charged for express fuel.Reviewed 7 Jan. 2016

Pros:I didn't like anything.Cons:I rented from the Dollar location at Midway airport. The Hispanic flamboyant manager on duty was extremely condescending and has a major anger management issue. Even though I PREPAID for the vehicle, I was told they were going to put a $200 hold on my credit (not debit) card. He then went on to say he couldn't override the policy (which I never asked him to) and that all rental car places do this. No they don't. I travel often to different cities all over the US. and only certain car rental places will impose a $200 or $400 (LAX) deposit. This man starts trying to over talk me so I said "I'm not going to argue with you." and left. Then when it's time for me to turn the car in, I'm standing outside waiting for the Hertz agent to close out the reservation for 15 mins while this lady intentionally skips my vehicle and then later admits it. Next thing I know here comes Mr. Flamboyant Manager charging at me and flailing his arms while he yells that I can get my receipt at the Dollar counter, once again not listening to anything I was saying or needing and actually lowered his fask mask to yell at me that he was calling airport security. Fire this loose canon and rethink your rental procedure.Reviewed 5 Jul. 2020

Pros:Someone from Hertz helped us, thank God.Cons:Dollar closed at 5pm our flight landed at 6pm. There was NO ONE there to help us- the counter and in the garage were empty. This was an hour and a half fiasco. Fortunately someone at Hertz helped us. The SUV we rented wasn’t available, so we got a minivan that had been smoked in. It smelled awful! I will never use Kayak againReviewed 6 Apr. 2021

Pros:The staff in the lot at pickup was friendly and helpful in figuring out the confusion from the mistake a the counter. The staff at drop off was friendly and helpful. Both of these staff were Hertz employees as they were handling the car pickup and dropoff.Cons:The counter staff assigned the same car to me as to someone else. There was confusion as to who was supposed to be in the car. The counter staff added insurance that I did not want to the charges. They did not ask me; I never take the insurance. When I questioned the higher amount, she said it was due to a deposit that would be returned to me. When I called customer service to address the situation, "William" told me that there was nothing he could do to help and I would need to follow some 10 step process on a web site to submit a complaint. We normally rent from Hertz. I will never us Dollar again.Reviewed 21 May 2021
