Good company. Good value.The staff was friendly and courteous. The car performed well with no problems.Pick up took an Hour! Although this was due to their not being able to process American Express that day - not really their fault - it was their banks's. At least the representative provided options. The car was advertised on kayak as a manual transmission but I received an automatic ... which was a little disappointing as a was looking forward to driving a stick shift ... but probably it was more practical in the end. If you are thinking of driving in Lima ... the guidebooks are Right! DON'T DO IT! Craziest drivers Ever!... at least get the insurance. Thankfully nothing happened to us.

Overall great expirienceThe car was in almost perfect condition. With one small downside.We've booked the cheapest car but for it you should leave 5000$ frozen if you're not 26. We did not find that info on the web site. So we end up on more expensive rental. The car that we rented was very sensitive to noise. If the noise was really loud the alarm enabled. Otherwise car was perfect.

Poor service and surprise additional costsRental price was only a 'base price' in which local taxes were added. In addition the car reserved was not available (they overbooked) and the upgrade to another car was not free. In the end more than double the price of the original rental agreement was demanded and the staff at the airport were not helpful or accommodating, borderline rude.

Hope all car rentals in Peru aren't this bad!The car worked!Clutch was set too low (had to push it down to the floor to engage) and breaks were too touchy. Made for a very uncomfortable ride. Felt ignored for nearly half an hour when trying to find someone to give us the car.
5.6 OkayJul 14 2017
Bad costumer serviceValueWhen pickup they try to force you to buy insurance claiming is mandatory but is just optional. Cars are full of scratches and when you return the car they will try to find one not marked at the pickup to ask you for a tip. Be careful.

Your survey is broken. You need a "Does not apply" option.The survey is aesthetically pleasing.You're sending a survey to someone who cancelled their reservation.

The staff was extremely friendly and thorough.I understand the road restrictions with the odd/even numbered plates. We were told that we would have an odd numbered plate, which worked well for us because of the driving we needed to do on a particular day. However, they gave us an even numbered plate, which really messed up our day.
8.0 ExcellentJun 13 2017
Very friendly staff, difficult to find drop-offFriendly and honest staffI had serious difficulty finding the location to drop off the car. In fact, it was closed although Alamo claims to be opened 24 hours. I managed to leave the car at the designated place and have the clerk at the desk arrange for the checkup. I did make my flight, but it was a stressful experience. The staff was really friendly.

The car was clean and in good working order.Nothing in the booking said anything about not leaving the city with the car. The site was difficult to get to from the airport.
2.0 MediocreJan 8 2018
Poor service and dishonestThe customer service representative at the desk was very kind.Upon arriving I waited 4 hours for the representative to arrive at the airport since the desk was not in the airport. Then the contract number was changed, and no contract in English was available, therefore the third party insurance was made void, and extra insurance had to be purchased from Sixt directly. The insurance wall not full coverage. During the rental period the car was slightly damaged by a hit an run. The manager said, over the phone, that this happens all the time in Peru and the insurance won't pay for it, so the Sixt insurance was useless and the third party insurance could not be applied because the contract number was changed. The manager said the third party insurance would be honoured by Sixt, but finally it wasn't. The overall experience was very poor and the manager did not keep his word.

1.9 HorribleSep 22 2021
The service in Lima Peru is terrible!! They did not respect my car reservation , first they gave me a mechanic car , my reservation was done in NY for an automatic car They did not accepted my collision car benefit that my credit car gives ( American Express) My reservation was for 200 dollars x 15 days but I paid 730 dollars x 15 days and they put 800 dollars more in hold to my credit card for any issue. Hertz in Lima Peru is a franchise
4.0 OkayJun 8 2021
I was grateful to be able to rent a car and in the end it worked out okay in spite of the risks/concerns about the rentalThey were only open after 8 PM (on Saturday) which was after we had to check-in. That meant we had to pay for parking until 8 PM ($8/hour) and leave it is a specific spot. Additionally, we were not there for the "inspection" to verify the condition of the card. On top of that, they charged us $15 for cleaning the car. Other factors were that, since we didn't pay for additional insurance, they placed a $4,500 hold on our credit card. The location is very hard to find if you don't arrive at the international terminal. In fact, you have to get escorted back to the counter.

They said they did not have my reservation J2482495213. When I called Hertz international, they said that my reservation did exists. However they stated they did not have any cars plus they did not have a reservation under my name.I had made a reservation with Kayak and they said that it was not valid and that they did not have it nor any cars to give me.

Hertz in Lima did not honor the reservation I had made on Kayak. At the 6517 Avenida Javier Prado Este, La Molina location reservation #J2482495213, they said they did not have a reservation for me. I showed them my Kayak confirmation and they said sorry they had no more cars and their was nothing under my name. At the Hertz215 Pasaje Tello, location,Conf. #J2484735202 they said they had my reservation but could not honor the price I had reserved it for on Kayak for $130 but they charged me $380.Honor the reservation I made with Kayak.

Hertz refused to rent the car because they didnt have the category available and refused to upgrade on the same price.
3.2 MediocreAug 21 2019
The staff tried to help sometimes but only with the drop-off.At pick-up the price suddenly went up with 400 dollars (for 9 days, wich is insane!) The car was clean but there was something wrong with the engine since it was barely capable of getting uphill (we had to push the car) but at Hertz they said it was all perfectly fine. Gave the car back after 7 days
