ON THE ROAD AGAIN
With Steven Masone
Renting vehicles is one my least favorite things to do. Not the driving, and taking a road trip, that's always fun and usually an adventure. It's the reserving the vehicle and getting to the rental car office and finding the vehicle is not ready, or the one you reserved is not available, and the switch car isn't ready at all. I say "switch car" because some agencies 'bait and switch' on purpose when you call in or request a certain vehicle they advertise using a booking third party company.
I used to have a Corporate account with Hertz Rent-a-Car many years ago and decided to try the Hertz in Beaverton, Oregon. Of course in this Covid-19 environment I was not looking forward to finding a busy office with employees on edge, fearing the worse having to trust the sanitation of the vehicles being properly cleaned and ready so I didn't have to be in a line or all of the other stress factors we all go through while navigating in this pandemic. I must say I was more than pleasantly pleased with the professionalism and attention to detail... the Hertz Rent-a-Car management and staff were at the Beaverton location. I did have a computer issue which was handled by management to my satisfaction and appreciated the managers prompt solution in taking care of it.

While third party booking companies seem to have discounted prices, usually it's not worth taking a chance and going straight to the rental agencies making for smoother arrangements is best for me. Call them at (503) 626-4066 and tell them you read this review and let them know you would like the same great service!
