Very flexible. My flight was delayed by 12 hours and they held my vehicle. Thank you.Reviewed 8 May 2024

4.8
Pros:Noone was there when I dropped the car off. I found papertowel (used) in the car. Not acceptable at all given this is a Covid pandemic. I was told after I had booked the car that Costco members get a discount. The agents never really tell you about any features or benefits. When I showed up the woman was not there so I had to wait for her.Reviewed 4 Nov 2020

Pros:I had asked for an economy car but I was told that none were available despite the fact that I had booked economy.Cons:They should go outside with the customer to do an inspection of the car and to explain the features of the car.Reviewed 14 Jul 2020

Cons:When someone rents a GPS it should have instructions with it or the operation be explained. I could not get sound out of it and old address kept coming up. It was night time rain and it seems all the City is in Construction, and the GPS does not work very dangerous.Reviewed 1 Oct 2019

Top tips for hiring a car from Hertz in Ottawa

  • If you choose to book Hertz car rentals in Ottawa, there are many different types of vehicles that you can select from, all of which work well for the area. For example, if you will be visiting during the winter months or travelling in a larger group, you may want to consider renting a van or SUV, as these larger models will give you extra space and also make it easier to navigate the region in snow or rain. If you will be mainly driving throughout the downtown alone, you may want to select an economy vehicle instead, as a smaller car will be easier to maneuver through tight streets and to park.
  • Those who book Hertz car rentals in Ottawa are able to take advantage of the company’s rewards program, called Gold Plus Rewards. It is free to join Gold Plus Rewards, and having an account through this program will provide you with certain perks, including the ability to earn points every time you book a car with Hertz. You can then use these points to receive discounts on future rentals. Additional benefits include being able to skip the line when picking up your vehicle and returning it.
  • When you book Hertz car rentals in Ottawa, you will benefit from the company’s famous customer service.

  • If you are interested in embarking on a long road trip, keep in mind that Hertz allows its customers to drive their rental vehicles across the border into the United States.
