Cons:

Took too long to get rental. I think it was around 20 minutes. Car still had cleaning wipes from previous rental or the cleaning crew left them in the car.

8.0 Very Good

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Overall, nice car & drop off was super easy. We paid for a full standard car and they provided a small SUV, which was appreciated. Price was way more of a value than picking up a rental from the airport.

Cons:

A little confusing finding the Hertz desk - we didn’t realize it was located on the 3rd floor of the Marriott. Would recommend them adding Marriott hotels to the address line.

Cons:

When arriving at Hertz at the Tampa airport, and waiting inline only to find my reservation was for another Hertz across town. Hertz moved my reservation to the airport location but I had to pay 3 times the amount. Pay attention to the rental address when you book!

Pros:

The day before we left they called to inform us that they didn't have a car for us anymore, and we were number 1 on the waiting list.

Cons:

They never called us to let us know they had the car promised us previously. We ended-up paying twice as much through a different rental company.

Cons:

Car was supposed to be at airport in Tampa. Find out some how my reservation was for Tampa 5 miles away. Had to take a taxi from airport to car rental place 10 mins away. And wanted to charge us 160$ at airport when we booked for 40$. And this car is not in good running condition.

KAYAK

Pros:

Loved the car I was rented. Newer model. Very clean.

Cons:

Phone number to National did not work so unable to stay in touch when I needed to talk to someone in the office. Car not ready when I arrived (person helping me went and cleaned it himself, so that was helpful), printer not working so no paperwork to take with me. I put in TPA for airport and was given an offsite location. I thought I was renting from airport and went there first. Big disruption to my plans. Ultimately my fault for not paying attention to the address, but also very confusing process that I was clear I wanted airport.

Cons:

My drop off location was at an unmarked office downtown Tampa by the convention center. I drove around in crazy traffic for half an hour looking for the drop off location. I eventually learned I had to go to the valet parking area of the Embassy Suites building. The city doesn't allow any signs or markings. THERE REALLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN A NOTE SOMEWHERE IN THE PAPERWORK.

The pick up time was nearly an hour. I had to wait for the attendant to return to the store and unlock the door. The process took forever. Then she had to go somewhere and het the car and wash it and bring it around which took another 30 minutes.
