Gary San Jose Airport 14 November 2017
Efficiency of staff, helpful and the Rental car centre at SJC is just so easy. I was on the road within one hour of landing, and that was on a BA flight from London. Nothing. Will use again, for sure.

Twice now have managed to book car through rentalcars when booking direct with agencies said 'no cars available' or quoted price five times higher!
Anonymous San Jose Airport 27 August 2017
Almost brand new car, very quick pickup, very helpful staff, quick drop off, very convenient location of rental car centre at SJC airport. The specific model of Nissan we were given did not have all the perks we are used to when renting, such as built-in GPS, fully automatic A/C. The built-in radio in this model is terrible, has very poor reception even in downtown areas (SJC and SFO).

The checking in/out process is fast, and I get/return the car quickly. Did not explain enough and seems like to rush the customer to make the decision quickly.
Anonymous San Jose Airport 02 October 2016
Clean car, good attention to service. Not many staff so longer queues than I would like. Seems to be the same at car rentals in San Francisco and San Jose.

Easy to get the car and smooth access. need additional fees such as assurance fee at the desk they strongly recommended the additional fees to me..
Anonymous San Jose Airport 18 April 2016
Car was almost new and comfortable High fuel consumption The brake covers from the factory were still on the vehicle - when we mentioned this at SFO upon returning the car, the agent was not interested or concerned about this...

Car was broken into. Hertz gave me an immediate replacement and upgrade. Poor choice of car with the initial rental. All smaller than what I selected online (Ford Focus).
Patricio San Jose Airport 01 June 2015
My car was a hyundai accent. Its got the worse visibility of any car i've driven. its dangerous.
