My own personal car key fell from my pocket. The hertz guys were kind enough to ring me so I could go back to collect it before going for my flight. Great service!
Weber Bordeaux Airport 03 April 2018
it took us almost 1H standing in the line in the airport hall to pick up the car that was already booked and paid on line.

Brian Bordeaux Airport 16 January 2018
excellent service from all at bordeaux the vehicle ( a fiat 500 L ) is not a great car... interior poorly assembled .... driving the car is not easy ... its very top heavy and unbalanced... not a good car for general hire purposes I would suggest
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 01 October 2017
It was reasonably easy especially drop off The car wasn’t great quality.
Robert Bordeaux Train Station 24 September 2017
Their was no screen water in the washer bottle (and it rained heavily on our way north of Bordeaux).Also the water level in the cooling system was low,it was below minimum so I topped it up.
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 13 September 2017
Car was good to drive Car was not thoroughly cleaned when we picked it up. The damage visual sheet was not accurate and we had to get the attendant to go over the car with us.
Lucy Bordeaux Train Station 08 September 2017
Speed of. Drop off returning the car. Ability to use app for voucher and information about the booking When picking up the car we arrived one hour early at 4pm and the Hertz representative would not start the booking procedure until exactly 5pm even when we went away for 45 mins and returned 15 minutes early. Luckily when we returned for the 2nd time the first representative had left and Her replacement wast very pleasant and efficient.

The time it took to get the car, you need more staff on the desk or do not share with another company.
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 05 June 2017
The car was nice to drive when I figured out how to start it. no representative on sight or at desk on first arrival, was not shown to the car on even shown how to start and use the controls. Completely different on return, polite and charming staff.

The car was great. We returned the car 3/4 full with fuel but were charged for a full tank.

Confusion about Thrifty desk at airport. The desk was unmanned but had a sign telling me to go to Lane M1 in car park. This turned out to be for Firefly and I had to return to the desk to then discover that I should have gone to Hertz desk

Price, ease of hire and efficiency of staff. The location was under heavy construction, so it was difficult to find the location.

we liked the car kia diseal,very economical.drop off was quick. poor handover ,staff too busy,wished we had a very brief introdution on how to set up the sat nav,otherwise it was fine
Anonymous Bordeaux Train Station 19 June 2016
Good comfortable car. Official spoke good English. Not used to needing clutch to start and button handbrake needing foot pedsal to release. Had to go back to office twice to ask - should have been explained. Car hire office re-sited due to extensive works at Station resulting in half mile walk with cases. Return venue marked well on map but had to plan carefully how to find one way steet

ADmin was excellent I paid to upgrade to an automatic with a satnav. It was a Toyota Yaris hybrid. Dreadful car - gearbox all over the place, no power.

No Hassle Good price Clean car Friendly and professional staff (with English language skills)
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 12 October 2015
Value for money. When I came to pick the car up they gave the keys to a fiat 500 when I booked a car like the Ford Focus. I did complain and they gave me a scenic instead, but I found this quite a cheeky approach.
James Bordeaux Airport 30 August 2015
Quick and efficient handover and drop off. The car had not been cleaned inside and there was grit and sand in both foot wells.
Andrew Bordeaux Airport 16 August 2015
Queues for Hertz (Thrifty desk was a closed) were nice and short - Euopcar were much longer and would have taken hours ! Staff were friendly and English was good (which helped me). They gave us a car with built in sat nav, which was a nice surprise. Nothing - all went well.

Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 31 May 2015
Friendly staff Because of the size of the car, I find it floating a little. I said not perfectly clean as in the box by the seats, it was dirty, with fluff, pieces of paper and hair. Not appealing when they are not yours. Otherwise, car clean. Thank you
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 07 April 2015
Didn't like the fact that if you want extras eg child car seat or sat nav that u have to pay by the day a one off payment for the time you have the car would be better value for money!
Anonymous Bordeaux Train Station 04 April 2015
no hassels prepaid gives no flexibility on change of plans

The young guy that served me is a credit to the company (Hertz) a réaly nice young man with a fantastic attitude. Always smiling. Fantastic service. Merci :)

Basic small car and economical Expected a Polo and not a Punto car not used to driving.

The staff where very helpful and efficient The car was supposed to be automatic but it was dual (both auto and manual). This made the automatic mode extremely jerky and not at all smooth during gear changes
