Dear Timelord,

I feel for you, I read somewhere on this forum that the Hertz in Furte is only a franchise and not the genuine Hertz.

I would strongly recomend that you research car hire in advance for any country that you hire in.

I travel a lot with my job and hire cars around Eurppe and US, and again I will research in advance, even though my company have regular car hire companies.

I know what you are saying that Hertz is a world wide recognised name etc.....

There is a very good section on this forum, and you will see who the good guys and the bad guys are.
Personnaly I recomend Payless.es, they have NEVER let me down in over 7 years now, and i think you will find all comments about them are positive. other recomended companies include Cicars & Cabrera Medina.

I hope you bad experience has not put you off coming back to the beautiful island of Fuerteventura.

Put the matter in dispute with your CC company. On Fuerty, I would recomend Cicar, used them twice with no problems, & no BS like "Bring it back empty" & sky high 2nd driver fees.

However, if you think Hertz are bad, you just have to try Orlando (If they are still about) Once rented a $hit heap off them that packed up 45 klicks west of bugger all

Hertz on Fuerte are 'an affiliate' this seems to let Hertz international off the hook, used them once in Fuerte, only got any reasonable service when we threatened to cancel our contract with Hertz on mainland and phoned our contact on the mainland ..................NEVER EVER EVER use Hertz in FUERTE

panache, sorry to hear of your experience........I can only hope a few more people will read it and avoid this company. I see you have insurance cover for excess damage........If it is an annual policy from
iCarhireinsurance or a similar company and you are willing to share your experience when you have claimed, I for one (and hopefully a few others on here) would be interested as I have paid for annual hire car excess cover for a few years, but, fortunately, have never had to make a claim.  Just wondering if it does what it says on the tin !!

Hi

Hired cars from Hertz on 10 occasions now (only use them when I visit Fuerto), got to book the trend here and say we have never once had a problem with them (even got an extra days free car hire in April as we are regular customers), travelled to the Oasis Zoo 2 years ago and parked up in the car park, came back to the car to find someone had bumped into it, took it back to the Hertz office and was given a new car at no expense to me whatsoever.....we use the Hertz office in Caleta (not the airport)...... once used Cicar and requested a VW golf (told that wouldn't be a problem) ended up getting a Fiat Panda (close).......

Hertz have been tolerating their local franchise for too long.. had a `do` with them 10 years ago and they dont appear to have got any better. Their cars were wrecks then. Interesting about Insurance4carhire..I have long had my doubts about this concept at the price they offer..Its too cheap..and I have read elsewhere of some very disgruntled users of their service, which bears out your suspicions...Glad you got a resulkt though...well done..

  Just goes to re inforce folks use Cicar/Payless/Plus Car ...

Hi panache, sorry, I've just seen your reply (of 6 months ago!!). I'll just add my belated congrats on a good outcome and as
Voldermort & yourself  suggest, the jury is still out on Insurance4carhire and similar companies.

We came back a couple of weeks ago from the Island and used Hertz at the airport. To be honest we have to give credit where its due. We looked at some of the reports before booking but all had some minus reports or drawbacks, and we definitely like the idea of full fuel tank out, full fuel tank back. We have used Europcar (on line booking collection from the airport car park) many times and found them to be really good (we once took a car back because a side light was out and they replaced the car rather than the bulb!), but this time were too expensive and they wernt prepared to price match. However, no problems with the Hertz service, or car. Fairly new car with a couple of very very minor scratches on it, which is to be expected, paid a deposit against the tank full of fuel on collection and this was returned to my credit card on the day after delivering back. Didn't but their additional excess cover, but that was explained very clearly. We will certainly consider again.
