    Pros: Car was received in very good condition.
    Cons: No explaination of Ezpass or vehicle inspection prior or post use.

    Summary: I normally rent from Enterprise. Everytime I do, someone walks around the car with me to record any damage so I am not held responsible for it. Upon return, the same procedure is followed. I recently rented a car from Hertz in New York City. The above ... read more

    Pros: Absolutely no pros. THE worst company.
    Cons: TERRIBLE, inexcusable, appalling customer service.

    Pros: They give you a car.
    Cons: -Initial Price
    -Dirty Car
    -Extra fees
    -Small Car for cost

    Summary: Terrible all around. The "pay cash online and save" option was still a little pricey ($200 for a 5 day small car), but I figured if that was the final total I could deal with it. There are 5 different Hertz counters throughout MCO, so coordinating where ... read more
