Hertz Corporation Lubbock Texas

Complaint: I rented a car in Dublin, Ireland for 11 days to be returned to Wexford, Ireland Ferrybank station. I rented online for $150.17. This included the car rental for 11 days and Additional Items Included In Total Approximate Charge: Drop fee estimated mileage, location service charge. I prepaid for the car and was sent a prepaid voucher to be given to the Hertz representative in Dublin. When I went to pick up the car, I was asked by the Hertz representative if I needed insurance. I explained to the gentleman that my credit card would cover it. He then told me that I HAD to purchase what he termed ‘basic insurance’. I acquiesced, thinking I had no other choice. I also agreed to return the car empty of gas and be charged for a tank of gas. Well, imagine my surprise a couple of weeks later when I tried to use my credit card and it was rejected because I was over my limit. In addition to the $150.17 they had already charged me, Hertz charged me an additional $434.25. (3x the amount I expected to pay) I called the company and asked about mandatory charges for insurance. I was told that insurance was optional not mandatory. So basically, I was blatantly lied to by the agent in Dublin. I have since them launched a complaint with Hertz about the charges. Not only did they charge me 156.54 Euros for insurance, they also charged me 50 Euros for a miscellaneous charge, 48 euros for theft protection, and 22.91 Euros for location service charge (which was supposed to be included in voucher) (Keep in mind that the Euro is about X1.5 the American dollar) They got back to me, first stating that the 50 Euros charge was because I returned the car to the wrong location. They also said they were sorry there was a ‘misunderstanding’ about the insurance but that I had to pay for it because I agreed to it. I replied to them that I had not returned the car to the wrong location as evidenced by the car rental agreement. I also stated that there was not a ‘misunderstanding’ about the insurance but that I was lied to and told that it was a mandatory expense. I got another response from then stating “Dear Ms. Thompson: We have received your reply to our October 9 E-mail. Thank you for the opportunity to review this matter further. First

Address: we would like to clarify some of the charges for you. The 22.03euro charge is not actually an upgrade fee it is a drop-off fee due to the vehicle being returned to a different location. This amount was not included in your pre-paid voucher. However

Website: Hertz would have honored the Terms and Conditions of the Rental Agreement. In regards to the 50.00 euro additional charge it is noted as an out off hours fee which generally means that the vehicle was returned when the location was not open. The Ireland office had informed us it was a penalty charge due to where the vehicle was returned. Therefore

Phone: we have verified the 22.91euro location surcharge was included in your pre-paid voucher but it is still listed on the receipt and so is the rental rate even though it is also listed on the rental agreement. Theft Protection (TP) and Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) are not mandatory and are optional items. We regret any misunderstanding regarding the TP and CDW. Since the rental record shows you accepted TP and CDW

Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Hertz Corporation Lubbock Texas. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike AngryConsumers.com, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Hertz Corporation Lubbock Texas is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
