South Africa
Volkswagen Polo
February 13, 2024

Cons: They told us that there were no scratches on the vehicle, but to take photos if we saw any. There were plenty of scratches - and we did photograph them. We ommitted to look at the tyre rim, which was probably scratched. When we dropped off the car, they immediately said that the rims were scratched and invoiced is us for R4000. If that isn’t a scam - then I don’t know what is. Shocking, no integrity and I will never use Hertz again. They didn’t do their paperwork and we have to pay for it!!

Toyota Agya
January 9, 2023

Pros: I was very satisfied with the whole process of booking and taking up the rental, thanks.

Cons: I needed more clarity. For future reference please could you let me know if, when booking, it is obligatory to buy Full Coverage, or if it would only be obligatory to pay the Prepayment fee. I was glad to have the coverage, and would probably use it again, but would like to know exactly what the ruling is in this situation. Also please could you let me know how much one saves by using Discover Cars, rather than dealing directly with eg Hertz. Thank you

South Africa
Toyota Agya
March 18, 2022

Cons: The times stipulated on the booking is not aligned with the average traveler . A flight arriving at 8h30 I cant wait till 11am to get my car. When i leave at 16h00 WHY MUST I pay for an extra day as the booking say I must return by 11h00. It is ridiculous to charge an extra day id the car is retuned 4 hour after 11h00. For this reason I will look for altrenative rental company

United Kingdom
Toyota Fortuner
March 11, 2022

Pros: The car was brand new, and the drop off was incredibly easy.

Cons: The queue was ridiculously long, in the heat and only 3 people behind the desk when there were several international flights arriving full of very tired passengers. Also, nowhere were we told or was there signage to indicate that Firefly in Cape Town was operated by Hertz so it was extremely confusing at first trying to work out where we needed to go.

United Kingdom

United Kingdom
VW Polo
February 15, 2022

Pros: It was not a professional service: the agent put a pre inspection form in front of me saying car has been checked and no damage. She told me just to sign. I told her that Im not signing a document until ive inspected the car myself. She became quite defensive at this. When i inspected the car it was full of dmage which i made her mark on the document before i sign. I do not appreciate a car rental agency that tries to deceive me!

United Kingdom

Volkswagen T-Cross
February 12, 2022

Pros: From the experience I had, nothing.

Cons: The staff were not friendly and then the car they offered me had scrapes and scratches and they had not noted this down on the form. It wasn’t until I highlighted this to them but they seemed disinterested. I am most certainly not going to engage with them ever again from that experience.
