8.4 ExcellentSep 7 2020
Pros: Helpful staff.Cons: I believed this location was at MSY, but it was not. I had to take a 25 minute Uber ride to the actual location. I will need to be more careful on selecting next time. I was sure that I selected MSY. :(

8.0 ExcellentMay 9 2019

10.0 ExcellentJun 30 2021
Pros: Both at pick up (?) and return (Ed), the service was friendly and fantastic.Cons: The A/C can be fixed for your employees in the pick up office downtown. We were comfortable, but it was early AM.
10.0 ExcellentMar 17 2021
Pros: The staff were VERY friendly and more than accommodating. Drop off was a breeze!Cons: Snacks provided in the car? Ahahaha
2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2021
Pros: I live in Austin and we experienced a winter storm which caused United to cancel my flight to New Orleans. I called and cancelled my car rental due to the unprecented winter storm. Hertz only refunded me $43. They kept $50 of my money even though this was not my fault at all. I won’t use kayak or hertz again.
2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2021
Cons: I prepaid for a car . When I went to pick the car up , hertz said they didn’t have cars available.
4.0 OkayFeb 22 2021
Cons: The car smelled like smoke and was missing the gas cap. I also received no instructions on returning the car on a Sunday when Hertz is closed.
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: We showed up to Hertz to pick up our car and waited about 15 minutes in line to be helped when the manager came out and said he couldn’t help us and they were closed and no longer renting out cars due to the bad weather. He “apologized” that the two workers at the desk did not notify us but said the most he could do was have us come back tomorrow at 12. We missed our tour and lost our money and even worse they made us wait outside to figure out a way to get back in town since we were stranded! When asked why we weren’t notified so we didn’t waste our time he said we tried to send emails but maybe we missed you. The person next to us waiting was in the same boat and said he never received a text, email or call either so clearly that was a lie. Worst service I’ve ever experienced would not recommend this Hertz.Cons: What couldn’t have been better!
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: Nothing. Horrible service.Cons: You booked the pickup time for a time after their business closed on Saturday. Hertz then sent us to the airport location, where there was a huge wait only to find out they didn’t have any available cars. When we went to go get the car when they reopened on Monday, we waited in a long line again only to be told they didn’t have a car for us (and wouldn’t have had one even if they had been open when we tried to get it the first time).
2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2021
Pros: Nothing really.Cons: I could have driven away with a rental car. Instead I waited an hour and the car never showed up and I wasted $22 in round trip ubers just to go home and rent a car from another company.
2.0 MediocreFeb 1 2021
Cons: Customer service was that of an attitudinal teen.
10.0 ExcellentNov 9 2020
Pros: staff very friendly, professional. Easy pick up and drop offCons: Delivery of car to hotel

4.0 OkayJul 1 2021
Cons: Not charging an extra day and not giving us a lower class car at the same rate
4.0 OkayMay 25 2021
Pros: That I was able to get a rentalCons: Picked up the rental in New Orleans with low leaking air in the rear tires .. had to fill them on several occasions.. woke up the next morning to only 6 psi .. had to take the vehicle and exchange it 30 miles away .. just blew a big chunk of my day spent on vacation
8.0 ExcellentMay 10 2021
Pros: Houston staff was helpful and understanding.Cons: Pickup in New Orleans could have been better: the representative did not give us a chance to inspect the car nor did he notate the amount of gas in the tank. Luckily we took a photo showing the tank was not full when we received the car, because in Houston at drop off they were expecting the car to be full until we explained and had the picture as proof. We also discovered while driving that one of the headlights was out, which the New Orleans representative did not inform us/note down, but the Houston representative noticed immediately before we even told him.
10.0 ExcellentApr 21 2021
Pros: Quick fast and efficient with a credit card and done online. Promotion available after rental dropoffCons: Not sure if anything slightly cheaper
10.0 ExcellentMar 3 2021
Pros: Yes. The staff was very helpful. The car was great and they saved me at last minute when a scam rental service did me wrong and would not rent to me. Thank you Budget.Cons: I guess the drop off was not clearly marked as far as what the procedure is, and an employee did not meet me when dropping off the car. I just had to go inside and all was taken care of.
2.0 MediocreJun 21 2020
Cons: They allowed me to place a pickup time when the place was closed.
3.2 MediocreMay 24 2020
Pros: staff at this location is always helpful and dropoff is easyCons: Car absolutely reeked of cigarettes and/or cannabis. There was essentially no windshield wiper fluid at all.
10.0 ExcellentOct 3 2019
Pros: Everything was perfecto
10.0 ExcellentSep 11 2019
Pros: No one in line when I picked up vehicle or dropped off!!
8.4 ExcellentJul 18 2019
Pros: Staff and cleanliness and accessibilityCons: Thought it was a little expensive but in hindsight I think it was the fact that Louisiana state tax is 25% so that amped up the price. Good car overall. It may need an oil change and the transmission feels weird in lower RPMs

10.0 ExcellentMay 9 2021
Pros: Teka was very friendly and helpful. This car rental company is off-site from the rental center to provide lower rates, so the facilities are sparse. The car was great and clean and it was an excellent experience.Cons: We had difficulty reaching the main number but were finally picked-up at the bus stop at the car rental center. The vehicle was great except for the dirty inside of the windshield.
8.0 ExcellentMay 7 2021
Pros: Pickup was great, Nick was very friendly and helpful. This is a budget operation, so the facilities are sparse. The car was great and clean, except for the inside of the windshield.Cons: The drop-off was on a Sunday, and handled by someone who was not an actual employee of the company. It was NOT a good experience!
6.0 GoodApr 8 2021
Cons: Just a heads up. This rental company IS NOT LOCATED AT THE CAR RENTA CENTER. You have to take one shuttle from the airport to the car the car rental center and the call them for them to come pick you up there to take you to their place. I specifically chose companies at the terminal to avoid this, but still got this as a choice only to be surprised once I got to the rental center that it was not there

2.0 MediocreApr 12 2021
Pros: We received a call on the way to DTW airport Detriot by a man saying there was a mix up with our reservation as they were closing at Noon. Note I made this on March 20 and he is calling me on April 3. We cannot make it before closing as we land at 4:00 so he modified our reservation ON HIS OWN ACCORD to MSY and a new price of $1110 vs the $483.88 Cannot get any help at counter because it was made thru Kayak / Priceline and can’t get a hold of anyone. Finally I call Avis and she gets me an unpublished deal of $797.79. I received a reminder email on April 2 too. Someone did a bait and switch on me and owes me $313.91. I expect an email or call ASAP Jeff Murray (616)840-2039 or jjmurray7@aol.comCons: See above
2.0 MediocreApr 4 2021
Pros: Literally nothing.Cons: Everything. The guy was an hour and a half late then just said, “Oh well you shouldn’t have been able to book it earlier.” No apology, no discount... It ruined our whole day because we were two hours late after he had to drive us to another location because the one I reserved the car at apparently only had a 12-passenger van he kept trying to get us to take. There were three of us! We didn’t want the damn van.
2.8 MediocreDec 30 2019
Pros: Car was not ready. Expected wait was 45 minutes.Cons: Car should have been ready. Avis should have texted or called to let us know they were short of cars.
4.0 OkayJul 29 2019
Pros: Picking up and dropping off were easy.Cons: They charged me $40 more than on the original contract. There is no reason given on the receipt.
10.0 ExcellentJul 16 2019
Pros: Staff was GREAT!Cons: I did not know a Sentra was a midsize car
8.0 ExcellentFeb 23 2019
Pros: Fadt checkoutCons: Hours are limited so you cant drop off earlier than 8 am or later than 6 pm.
10.0 ExcellentOct 7 2017
Pros: ServiceCons: Size of car
8.0 ExcellentAug 5 2017
Pros: The representatives were friendly.Cons: They did not have a booster seat for my 6 year old daughter. We called 3 in the area and none if them had one, so we ended up at Wal-Mart and bought a seat ourselves.
8.8 ExcellentJun 5 2017
Got bad car firstPros: I got a bad car that was shaking at the speed more than 55 mph. Was able to change it for absolutely new car in another city's airport without any problem and enjoyed the rest of my trip driving new Ford Edge.Cons: I booked SUV but at the pick up office they told me that they had only mid size cars. I insisted on SUV. They found it, but it was bad. They should have checked it.
2.0 MediocreMar 28 2017
Pros: Car got good mileageCons: When we went to pick up our car in New Orleans they said they ran out of the small SUVs that we had reserved. They only had a car for us. The car had cigarette smoke smell in it.

4.0 OkayApr 19 2021
Pros: location was inconvenient but the staff did their best considering.Cons: The car was in bad shape . It sounded like the wheel bearings were completely shot and front and rear fenders weren't attached and were flapping in the wind on the freeway. It did last for the rental period but I wasn't sure it would.
8.0 ExcellentMar 30 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly, car inspection was thorough and previous damage was clearly markedCons: We were not made aware at time of rental that the car rental company was not located where the airport transportation dropped us off. The gentleman who picked us up was prompt and all went smoothly after our arrival at the car rental which was very close to the drop off point.
6.0 GoodMar 25 2021
Pros: The service was ok. They were not located in the car rental area so a car had to go pick us up there and take us to the hotel where they were.Cons: The car was in a very poor condition. The chargers and usb didn’t work. It made noises.
8.0 ExcellentMar 22 2021
Pros: So much easier picking this car up at the Days Inn, than dealing with the Rental car faciility.Cons: It could have been easier to have the shuttle pick us up at the airport rather than the bus stop shelter

Pros: Very friendly staff.

She spoke so quickly we had to ask multiple times for her to repeat herself. But she was very friendly and helpful!

2.0 MediocreMar 3 2021
