The customer service personnel were EXCELLENT!!! They would be the reason I would return to Alamo rental cars on my next trip to my parent’s home!! They made the experience so smooth and efficient both getting the car and returning it, that I think I there is no other company that could accommodate me needs better!!!

I had already reserved my car and provided payment information. I didn't care for standing in a line with only one agent working to service all the passengers from an Allegiant flight. It was a 20 minute wait! I was thrilled to get a Rav 4 since I requested an intermediate SUV and drive a Toyota at home. It made my husband with Parkinson's Disease very comfortable with the surroundings as well.

Easy booking and pickup for the car. Clean and reliable cars to rent!The rate was fair but additional charges like gas was not expected as I was not mentioned about tank fill up. Over charged me for fuel. And drop off location needs to be more.

Staff was fine at pickup and drop off (especially at drop off)The only slight annoyance was the number of times the counter rep suggested I purchase their insurance. I understand it’s their job to present this (profitable) option, but two offers is enough, I didn’t need the extra attempts. But this did not change my perception that this was a very nice rental

Although not a new car, it had no issues, and was the right size for me. The staff was very nice, no upgrade pressure.Was a bit worried about the check engine light, but when I mentioned it to him before I left, he noted that it was getting near a service milestone. And as I mentioned, it had no issues.

Attempted to reserve and rent a vehicle to travel to Ohio for a job. Multiple issues with even creating a reservation. Once created could not be canceled or refunded. Was charged full price for a reservation I was denied being able to pickup at all. Very bad business practices and beyond poor customer service in any way as far as trying to get any issue whatsoever resolved

NothingI didn’t like how they processed everything, too fast and didn’t have a choice of car. I would of liked a compact with trunk not hatch. And again fast with the check out, I wanted to pay cash and they didn’t even give us a chance to ask if we could. They were only concerned how many miles I put on, and that I parked in the return section. Mind you it’s snowing outside and their parking lot is a mess. Safety first? Lol mileage should be my last concern, And besides I’m paying.

We had car trouble with the car we originally rented. But Ben and Doug from the Hertz in Roanoke came and picked us up quickly and got us going in a new car. They were wonderful. The emergency roadside assistance was poor. We were on hold for over half an hour before we got through. Then it took them over an hour and a half to pick up the car. Fortunately due to Ben and Doug, we got another car and didn’t have to wait for the tow.

Super easy car rental and return.The airport is very easy to get to and the Rental Car return lanes and parking lot are easy to find and get in and out of. The rental car counters are a very short walk and easy to find, and there are carts around to place your luggage on so you don't have to carry everything. The rental lot runners/employees are also very helpful if you have questions or need direction.Honestly, there really isn't anything I didn't like about the ABE airport car rental experience.

Filthy car, poor customer service at drop offThe customer service at pickup was great!When I picked up the car it was frozen solid. It took a lot of work to be able to open the driver side door and melt the windshield. The outside of the car had a lot of body deficiencies such as tape marks, scratches, and scuffs. I could have gotten over that, but as the car defrosted I realized that the windshield on the inside has tons of tiny wet marks which were also visible on the dashboard and the panel in front of the speed gauge. It looked like someone had sneezed all over the inside of the car (dashboard/windshield). It was so gross that I pulled over about 90 minutes into the trip and bought cleaning supplies and cleaned the car! But besides that and the car being extremely uncomfortable, the worst part of the rental was actually the smell. The only thing I can compair the smell to is hot, wet cat food. The smell faded a little over time, but was most noticeable when the heat was on. It was terrible, and compacted by the fact that I needed to drive the car from eastern PA to VA to IN. Then from IN to VA to eastern PA, in January when the heat needed to be on all the time!!! It was a miserable experience. When I returned the car at the Hertz counter, I told them about my experience and the woman didn’t even say sorry it was a bad experience. I have been renting with Hertz multiple times a year for about five years, but after this experience I will have to do some true soul searching before I consider them in the future.

Dollar Rental (Hertz owns Dollar) I must speak up about this since so many levels of safety and trust were broken. I am scared that another customer will possibly lose his or her life and their family’s life if improvement measures are not taken to make drastic improvements to Dollar’s 24-hr Roadside Assistance Call Center customer care response. In September I rented a Dollar car to go from Allentown, Pennsylvania to San Antonio, Texas which equals about 2,000 miles. First night of rest is scheduled in Knoxville, TN. I was given a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport these drive 2,000 miles. On day 1 in Virginia, the Mitsubishi started to choke and not run properly - service engine light constantly indicating a problem. I felt unsafe driving it on the highway for fear the engine would quit and possibly cause an accident. At different times, the car wouldn’t go faster than 40 mph. I pulled off the highway in Woodstock, VA to seek help from Dollar. I called your 24-hr Roadside Assistance at 1-800-235-9393 from the back of my rental contract. This phone number does not go directly to a customer service representative at Roadside Assistance. The woman who answered would not help me but would do nothing except transfer me to someone else. I was in the queue for well over 20 minutes with no one helping me. No one asked if I was ok, was there an accident or any reason that I might need assistance. I called numerous times trying to get a person to help me and I only received ‘not this department’, let me transfer you to someone who can help’, and one of your staff hung up on me when I was being assertive trying to get help. I called Hertz’s Roadside Assistance, too, (Hertz owns Dollar) at 1-800-654-5060. This number took me right back to the same person who answered the phone previously and she continued to pass me on to the Roadside Assistance department. After 1 hour, I tried AAA. Her first statement was, ‘are you ok, in a safe place’. I cried. Here I am traveling with trust in Dollar to reach my destination. I am barely 300 miles into my journey of 2,000 with a car that is not working, Dollar service reps not willing to step up and help me but rather just connect me to another department and pass the responsibility on to someone else. AAA’s representative discussed possible options and the lack of options. The best thing would be to get the Mitsubishi to a Dollar Rental for an exchange. The nearest Dollar was in Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport in Charlottesville, VA, 85 miles away. It was not on the route I was traveling and would take 2 extra hours to get there with a car that is not running well and the service light constantly blinking. What would you do? At arrive at the Charlottesville Airport and am told that Dollar does not operate out of this airport despite finding it on Google and AAA had matching information. This 1-day portion of my journey still has 400+ miles before I can put my head down to sleep. At the Dollar counter in the Knoxville Airport a sign read: ‘Be back in 20 minutes.’ I went to the next counter (HERTZ) and spoke to CHERYL. She helped me! She accepted the Mitusbishi and provided me with a Chevy Equinox. THANK YOU, CHERYL…you were the only one of all the staff that I spoke with that helped me!!! No one showed up at the Dollar counter during my visit with Cheryl. Dollar’s rental agreements state: We never forget whose dollar it is. Dollar’s Facebook pages advertise: Make family memories. Safely. Dollar failed on these mission statements to this customer. I could overlook some of these difficulties to sheer randomness. However, when I add up the different attempts that I tried to get YOU to help me with YOUR product, YOU FAILED repeatedly. You were quick to take my money provided nothing would go wrong. From my first call to Dollar to when I decided to drive to the nearest Dollar, I had spent 3 hours trying to get help from your Roadside Assistance department. If your incoming call volume is that high that I needed to wait 3 full hours and still not reach anyone…then DOLLAR needs to improve their services, increase staff and training so that your customers do not need to wait to get the help that you encourage customers to use, if needed. I never got through to Dollar 24-hr Roadside Assistance. It is nearly 30 days later and I am still trying to reach someone.

Staff was friendly, quickThe car smelled like smoke, although it had only had10,000 miles it had a few dings. I paid extra to upgrade, also opted for the prepay gas option. It was deceiving. The advertisement said $2.49/gal for them to fill the car upon return but it was actually a flat fee of $40. I filled the car and it only cost $28.00.

I had requested full coverage insurance for this rental. The agent who issued the car to me never added that coverage. Unfortunately I was involved in an accident and I was told that I wasn’t covered.Having been listened to better at the time of pick up and to have been covered by the requested full coverage insurance.

Frustrating experienceCar was perfectly clean, and had better features (forward automatic braking) than most rental cars.Car was reported as full but came with 3/4 of a tank, though they did reimburse my refueling. Impossible to add a second driver without both drivers going to the desk, which is much stricter than any other rental company I have experienced.

The pick up was fine. There was no line and the counter agent was nice.The drop off was not ideal. There was no sign for Thrifty at the Philly airport. I happened to see some Thrifty vans parked in the parking lot of an office with a Dollar sign. My husband hopped out of the car and went into the building to ask if it was also where we should return a Thrifty rental. If he hadn't done that, we probably would have been circling the airport for awhile. Long story short, there should be better signage. In addition, an agent normally comes out to check in the car. I actually had to go inside the office to ask for someone to check in the car. It's not that big of a deal but it's nice when someone comes out - takes a bit off the stress of returning a car and catching a flight.

I think it is immoral to charge me $10 a gallon for a full tank of gas, when I did not use the full tank. I sort of understand charging a premium. The gas supply is no doubt right next to the wash and detail area, so it cannot cost much more for the service folks to gas up the car. It's just another way, along with selling insurance, that the Hertz car rental system gouges the unsuspecting.

Bald TiresI can’t really complain about the rate. It was quite affordable.Even if you are paying a good rate, you should expect that the car would at least be safe. The front tires had NO tread left and i was having to drive in the rain! Every time I would start from a stop the tires would spin out!!! Yikes! And when breaking the antilock breaks would engage. Definitely one of the scariest drives I’ve driven!!! Also, I had no idea that the location was NOT on airport like all of the other locations! Someone should apprise you of this so you don’t miss your flight!!!
