Conan Gets Resolution From Hertz For Pricing Error

It didn't take long for Hertz to respond to Conan O'Brien calling them out on his late night show for an obvious pricing error on their US website that no-one would admit was an error. 

On his show on Monday night, Conan introduced a new segment inspired by an experience that Executive Producer Jeff Ross had encountered with Hertz. In case you missed it, here is Monday's Ross Wronged video.

Hertz Error Inspires New Segment On Conan

An unfortunate pricing error on Hertz' US website has inspired a new segment on Conan O'Briens late night show on TBS. 

It seems that the show's Executive Producer Jeff Ross, a self-professed long-time repeat client of Hertz and a Hertz Gold Plus member for more than 10 years, recently tried to rent a car for a trip to Florida. When checking the price for a one-day rental of a Premium size car (by the way Hertz, since when is a Chevrolet Impala a Premium car?), this is what he was quoted.

How To Submit A Review On Rental Car Reviews

Why are our reviews different?

Writing a review on RentalCarReviews.com is slightly different to any other site that we know of who provide reviews for Car Hire and Car Rental. Let me explain how our site is set up, why it was done this way and what steps you need to take to write a review.

We ask for reviews of individual locations to provide greater clarity for future renters and for the car rental companies being reviewed. We currently have over 23,000 locations globally available to be reviewed.

What this means that when you submit a review on RentalCarReviews.com, you are not writing one (for example) for Avis, or for Avis USA or even for Avis Florida. You are writing a review for the Avis location at Orlando Airport specifically.

Video Review Of 2014 Chevrolet Sonic LS - David Adams

Have you ever walked through a car rental parking lot with your rental agreement in hand and the instructions from the agent ringing in your ears, "pick anything you like in Aisle B"?

In some car groups there are often 5 or more makes and models available for you to jump into and drive away. Do you wish you knew what each one had to offer? Comfort, power, handling, features, leg room, luggage space, Bluetooth, GPS, Cruise Control?

These are just a few of the things that I am going to cover in this series. Sit back while I take you on a tour of the inside and outside features of each car and then put you behind the wheel, narrating and drawing on my experience as a competitive racing and drifting driver.

Which Rental Car To Choose? David Adam's Video Rental Car Reviews

RentalCarReviews.com in collaboration with David Adams will shortly provide video reviews of the cars that you can expect to choose from when you next rent in the US or Canada.

A few weeks ago I was contacted through the website by David. He had started to do some video reviews of cars that he rented just for fun and set them up on YouTube under the name Rental Car Reviews. He wanted to let me know what he was doing and make sure that he wasn't "stepping on any toes" as well as enquiring if I would be interested in some collaboration. No compensation from either end and no promises.

We traded a few emails and have since spoken on a number of occasions. Long story short, we're going to provide David's reviews to our readers on RentalCarReviews.com and he will help us get the word out about the site. We're planning on simply having some fun making and publishing these and hope that you find them useful.
