1 Jan 2017
Pros: Nothing to like about Hertz. Poor signage at airport. Alamo was the best. They had good signage and employees outside to greet the people who turned in their cars.
Cons: The drop-off was also poor. The Hertz employee at the check-in desk when I turned in the car was also not professional. I turned the car in on time and asked for a receipt. She said I already had it in my hands and she didn't need to stamp or sign anything. Then she didn't process the papers for two more hours and Hertz charged me an extra days rental, which I had to dispute on the phone in order to get refunded.

Pros: Return was easy and fast and close to the airport.
Cons: The sign was confusing b/c right before the terminal the Hertz sign pointed to go right, but no road access to go right. When we drive pass the terminal and found area to return rental cars, only signs for other renal car companies by the gate, but not Hertz. The Hertz sign was toward the back after we drove all the way to the end.

Pros: Pickup/dropoff went very quickly and the representatives were very friendly.
Cons: We paid to have a tank of gas filled for us because the gas price was cheaper with AAA. What wasn't explained to us was that we would be paying for a full tank of gas, whether we used it all or not. We only used 3/8 of a tank, but paid for the full tank.

Punta Gorda Airport
Pros: Service person was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The car was clean. The only problem was the fuel for the car. The tank was only 3/4 full, but the representative explained the situation and told us to only fill it to the 3/4 line when it was returned. I believe the gas gauge was defective. I will keep an eye on my credit card to make sure I am not charged for gasoline.

Frustrating
Pros: Convienance, economic
Cons: I did not cancel my reservation, but my friend switch over to her name to pay for rental instead. I was charged a $100 fee and shouldn't have been. Now I have to wait until Monday to rectify this situation.

Still alive!!!
Pros: OJ didn't leap over chairs in terminal to get us our car faster, or to stab us...
Cons: Car hadn't been cleaned, inside we found a half smoked cigarette pack in door pocket and Monster can under the seat. Car had tar on exterior in several places... Call to make sure we weren't held responsible revealed that Hertz employee hadn't set up gold rewards to allow spouse to drive vehicle. Wasted over an hour on several phone calls to straighten out... Lots of finger pointing between local and national employees... Finally got another local Hertz dealer to straighten out problem...

good
Pros: The car was ready & waiting for us to pick up. It was clean & comfortable. I had done my research before booking & found this to be the best price.
Cons: The gentleman was courteous enough, I guess. He didn't stand to greet us. (I noticed that all the other agents at all the other counters were standing.) He tried to up-sale us pretty hard, which I know is their job, but I don't really like that. He didn't tell us anything about the tolls or turnpike etc. He's in Punta Gorda, so maybe he didn't know what we would encounter in West Palm, but I'm afraid we may end up with a $100 fine because we didn't pay a toll. Did that car have a Sun Pass??

Reserved car not available
Pros: They did not have a BMW available, but replaced it with a Nissan Maxima, refunded money and provided a full tank of gas.
Cons: The idea of reserving a car, is to have a car available. Initial expectation not met, but resolution provided was acceptable.

Not satisfied
Cons: It started when I arrived at the Enterprise office. Their computer system was down so I had to wait. To top it off, the car smelled like cigarette smoke and the visor on the driver side was broken. Not a good thing in the Sunshine State. I would not recommend this company for car rentals. In addition, when I returned the car, they didn't even ask if everything was Ok with the car.
4.4 Okay
16 Nov 2016
Pros: The car was ready and available
Cons: I had to force myself to pick a return flight due to my picking up the car in Punta Gorda off site from the Airport, via Taxi for $20.00 in spite of Enterprise signage. As I figured out, Enterprise has not the "Insurance" "Permission" to be present at the Punta Gorda Airport. I was summarily denied picking up my reserved vehicle set for dropping off at RSW., because I had "NO RETURN FLIGHT TICKET" to Minneapolis. Had to do return flight reservations on the spot, on my phone & go thru the hassle of getting a return flight confirmation sent to my e-mail account ... which i had to log into on their computer ... so the Punta agent could confirm my travel intentions and release the vehicle. Sorry guys, MY Reservation stated that I was going to drop it off at RSW. Was forced to shorten my stay. Was fully prepared & willing to extend the Rental a few days further. Was in town shopping for a home, had no definitive plan about the return flight. So much for a Speedy Check In - 1+ Hr expended.

Punta Gorda GL experience
Pros: Supposedly they are not charging me to drop off at airport... I hope that is true. We dropped off EARLY as our flight left at 6:30 a.m. Their office is not “open” that early but it was really nice that they had staff out on the lot to help with drop off. Drop off went very smoothly. Car was great.
Cons: I messed up and accidentally rented off airport. Their contracts say they can’t come onto a “competitors” turf, so they would not bring our car to us... isn’t that what Enterprise is all about? So we took a cab to the rental location. They added about $150 to our credit card for “incidentals” that SUPPOSEDLY will “fall off” of our credit card if no incurred. We shall see... I’m waiting for next credit card bill to double check. We had to wait a LONG time at rental office to get our car.

Bait & Switch treatment at PGD
Cons: I had a confirmation for a one way rental from RSW to PGD for pickup on Jan 18 and drop off on Jan 19 for $26.16, 43465747US3 Confirmation Number. When I picked up the car at RSW, that price was confirmed. When I dropped off the car at PGD the charge was $40.99. I explained to the Budget rep that was the wrong price and showed her my paperwork from RSW. She said the addlitional amount was for the one way charge. I told her that should have been shown up front on the quote. She said I would have to go to the counter to get it adjusted. The counter was backed up and I did not have time to wait. I am seeing a $13.99 fuel service charge on the receipt that does not belong as I returned the car with a full tank and a receipt showing I added 1.6 gallons and drove the car only 48 miles. I want an adjustment to show the original quote price of $26.16.
