Was able to pick up right in Manhattan. Upgraded to a 4 wheel drive when say conditions were bad. Was able to do a one way trip as needed all the way to Memphis. Other rental companies would not allow this. Good price and very friendly service.

Pros:

Friendly attendant in NYC. Car had relatively low miles.

Cons:

Forgot transponder (which I prepaid for) making tollgates a challenge. Car quality (Ford ESport) was small and less than expected for “mid-size SUV.” Car shocks were poor, but got us to Chicago without other technical issues.

The car was in poor condition. There were pills on the floor near the drivers seat. The sensors are delayed I advised the center to not offer this car to any other patrons. Keep in mind, this wasn't even the car that I originally wanted because of size. So basically, it wasn't what I wanted, it was in poor condition and it drives poorly. Unfortunately, this was an all around bad experience.

When I picked up the car I had a meeting I had to go to ....they told me the car only had 1/8 of tank of gas! I had to spend 30 minutes looking for gas station. I asked for another car and they wouldn't give me an upgrade even though I am a Avis business customer and platinum AMX - Worst of all- the car smelled like smoke!!!!!

Other than the rental price gouging during the holiday week, my experience with Hertz was great. The check-in process was pretty fast and my car was waiting outside the office. I chose the Manager's Choice option and was given a full-size sedan which drove great.

it is impossible to deal with the car rental companies in Manhattan, but Hertz on 76th st is the worst of the worst. terrible employees. lack of information. call the number on line and you get a person in the Philippines or Honduras. a totally negative experience. my second time in a year. but never again.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing. The staff was rude, unhelpful, terrible overall. I literally did not even get my car after waiting for four hours.

Cons:

Every aspect could have been better. They made me wait for four hours after my scheduled pick up time, at that point I didn’t even need a car anymore. When I asked to cancel, the attendant rolled her eyes at me, looked at her coworker and mocked me, and then failed to promise I would get my money back. They wanted me to continue to wait “another hour and a half” but also didn’t promise I’d ever get the car. So I left, and had to wait on hold with the corporate office, explain, and ask for my money back. This office on 76th st in Manhattan should absolutely not be in business and is a total scam.

Cons:

Waiting for over 4 hours for my car. The rental location was a disaster. People were waiting there for hours and there were no cars. I am filing a formal complaint with Hertz. It was the worst rental experience of my life.

When we came to pickup, there were no cars available, even though we had made a reservation. The crew found this perfectly normal and said we had to wait an hour. After an hour we got a great car that was more luxurious than we picked, for the same price.
