I'm out over $300 for nothing. They didn't allow me to pick up the car because I paid with Affirm. When I tried to get my money back, they referred me to Kayak, who referred me to car rentals.com, who gave me numerous non-working phone numbers and said they couldn't help me. I was robbed.

Pros:

Location of office was convenient

Cons:

1. The car was not cleaned inside or out. Hertz talks about COVID protocols, but with this care because there was food and other debris on the inside which you could tell wasn’t wiped down. 2. Car given to me with the gas light on. Seriously Hertz? 3. Was told the car wasn’t equipped with SXM radio, but it was.

I went online because there were rentals left and I get there and the lady tells me there are no rentals. It was an emergency situation and it wasted my time and the person who drove me there's time. Thanks but no thanks, I will never recommend anyone to use this service. My first experience and my last. I found a place and they even went out of their way to bring me the car, at no charge.

I couldn't even get the car I reserved because they didn't accept the only type of credit card I have.
