Have you ever wanted to take a family trip, but the mode of transportation was a concern due to size? Well, this was my predicament last week, when my family and I decided to take a weekend road trip. We knew that we needed a bigger vehicle and renting one was our only option. I was hesitant to look for rentals, as I had so many questions going on in my head due to the pandemic we are in and I was worried about the safety of my family. I remembered a friend of mine had just returned from a family trip and she told me she rented a vehicle from Hertz as her car could not hold everyone. She told me about the great experience she had dealing with them and how they made the process smooth and easy for her and that she recommends them any day. With her great review, I decided to take a chance with Hertz and see what their offerings were and if they would make this process as easy as she said they would. I must say I was not disappointed, as they had a seamless booking process on their website and within 10 minutes, I had made my reservations.
A few days later I arrived at Hertz to reconfirm my reservations and to pick the car up. Upon arrival at the car pick up area, I was warmly greeted by their employees who had their masks on, and they had plexiglasses in place as well to assist in ensuring everyone’s safety. They quickly found my reservation and assured me that they have cleaned and sanitized their cars. My mind was at ease walking to my rental and I felt great knowing that they updated me about their sanitization processes and that the environment felt clean and looked spotless. The vehicle they provided me was exactly what I needed, which proved that they did pay attention to the details I noted in my reservations. The car keys were in the car as they did not want any contact and they assured me they were sanitized just before I arrived to pick up the rental. As I arrived at the rental the keys were already inside, and it was the exact car that I was looking for.
When I opened the door, I smiled as the car was clean inside and I could see that they had safety and cleaning protocols in place. When I spoke to their team, they advised me that Hertz had implemented several safety and cleaning protocols for every vehicle such as cleaning and sanitizing the following:
- Door handles both inside and out
- Key Area
- Seat Belt fitting/clips
- Steering wheel
- They go back over every area that was previously cleaned and disinfect it
- Plus, so much more
I was overjoyed that I decided to listen to my friend and rent a car from Hertz as we felt safe and clean in our rental. We were not disappointed with the car as it was big enough for all of us and it drove smoothly to and from our road trip. I was impressed, as I have rented cars from other companies and have experienced vehicle issues while on my trip. The return process was as smooth as the pickup process. I arrived at the drop off location and someone was there to greet me with a mask on and to receive my return documents. Hertz made our trip so memorable and they made us feel happy and safe while providing high-quality service.
If you are looking to take a road trip during this pandemic, do not let fear stop you. It is possible to travel and keep you and your family safe, just be smart and rent from Hertz. I guarantee you will not be disappointed as you cannot beat their amazing deals, Gold Standard Cleaning, and how much they care about your safety. I highly recommend Hertz for your travel needs as their cars, customer service and booking process is top-notch.
