Due to a change in plans, I didn’t need my rental for the five day period for which I had originally rented it. I was able to return it early and Alamo only charged me for the one day for which I had it. Very friendly understanding staff!

You have to fill in your return document (with mileage, gas tank level, etc) but I prefer this and don't mind a bit. Good experience overall for me.

I rented a full size car and was given a compact suv (Nissan Kick) and told it was an upgrade. The car was very uncomfortable. When I told the person at the counter my complaint she just asked why and when I told her she just said I am sorry.

Pick up was time consuming. Had to wait in line for 10 minutes and then had to wait another 10 minutes while the car was cleaned. Nice Toyota Rav4. A little pricey.

Not getting jacked for a rock chip in the windshield that was there when we picked it up. Didn't notice it until after leaving as it was raining. Wasn't caused by me but I was told that I was responsible for repairs. Don't rent from these jerks.

The airport was small and easy to navigate. The rental cars were close to the terminal.I had reserved a standard size car like a Kia Soul or "similar". When we went out to the car, we had been given a Kia Rio which is a compact car. The person at the desk kept saying that a Kia Rio is similar in class to a Soul. He offered to upgrade us for a "small" fee. We ended up with a Subaru.

Efficient and friendly serviceWe received a free upgrade, which was amazing for our family and all of our suitcases. We had a stressful day of travel with flights delayed and the rep that checked us in was so pleasant and efficient. Great vehicle, too, parked close to the exit. The return was a breeze, too!

Nice, clean, new vehicle, Jeep Grand Cherokee, good size.When I turned it in they charged me almost double what I had agreed to. One day rental, one way, was told about $90, they charged an additional $93 when I returned the car. Manager said he would refund the extra charge, has not happened. That manager is Brian, at Charlotte airport.

new car smellI couldn't find the gas button on the Hyundai Santa Fe. I had to google it at the gas station after a couple minutes of frustration. Maybe you can tell customers where tricky buttons are located when they pick up the car?

Everything was good. My only unpleasant experience with the car was that it was still smoky from someone who had smoked in it before. I understand smokes hard to get out, it’s frustrating to get into a car that smells smoky.

Well, it was easy to use online. Too bad the rental shop the site sent me to, with a confirmation number, had no record of my reservation.Well I completely could not rent a vehicle from the place Kayak sent me to. I lost hours of my 3 day mini vacation trying to find a place to rent a vehicle. And i havent gotten my deposit and insurance back.

Enterprise honors not it reservationsThey called me 4 minutes ahead of time , while I was getting out of Uber car to tell me they had rented out my previously reserved car . I was 3K miles away from home with a young son so this was not welcome newsMy reserved car was rented out to someone else . They didn’t have a car for me which resulted in me needing to take a 200 mile Uber ride to get to my Mom’s.

The clerk at the counter handed me the paperwork, keys, told me where the car was parked, and sent me on my way. He never offered to go to the parking lot to check out the car or anything.For a short term rental, the value was not good. I needed the car to go from the airport to family's house.

I love renting from EnterpriseIf I could do one thing over I would have booked 2 months in advance for better pricing. Saved money by dropping off car outside airport and they gave free shuttle ride to airport.They had to redo bill because they added insurance when we had said no at car pick up. Keep your documentation.

Prices online differ from the rental companyI did not like anything about my experience with kayak or dollar. We went to a different company.The reason we did not like our prospective rental from Dollar was because when I booked on Kayak, I paid 56.00 for insurance upfront and they said you pay the remaining 76.00 when I get to Dollar at my destination. We arrive and first of all they only had a mini-van available, even though on Kayak I specifically chose a four door compact car. Then, they wanted to charge over 200 dollars to get a different car and then charge for adding an extra driver, even though we have a Costco membership. After an unfriendly customer service experience, we checked next door at a different place and they gave us the car we wanted and let us have two drivers for under 130, which was a little more than the original that Kayak quoted but still better. I don't know who is in the wrong but I believe the third parties that rent online on behalf of companies need to be a little more honest and upfront about what is going on.

I liked the vehicle. It was clean and comfortable.I prepaid online and when I picked up the car, they had no record of any payment. Even after showing my receipt and charge to my card, they were unable to acknowledge that payment because it wasn't in their system. I was charged an additional $523 and had to make several phone calls and send emails with proof of payment. When. I returned the car, the manager was not available to speak with about this so it is still not resolved and I have double charges for this rental.

The car ran very well. I had a big trip to take and found my transportation absolutely comfortable and reliable and that was a big help!!Unlimited miles is within a region. I traveled outside the "region" and there was an extra $20/day fee. But, I did know this ahead of driving off and made the choice to stay with this car company. It beat the $200 surprise payment I had on my last car rental.

Great price good carI was able to rent a full size sedan for the price of a sub compact.The car smelled like smoke and the head liner had chocolate smeared across it in the back seat. The back seat also had white crusty stuff on it.

Learned my lesson from the "Our Choice" PloyI liked that i could cancel both the rental and insurance with no penalty. Be aware that the insurance that is first offered through Kayak partners is not usually through the rental agency itself. Investigate the rental car's coverage and price and compare. Lesson Learned. I walked away.I bear some responsibility as i chose the "Our Choice" option. But know that it does appear to be a ploy of getting more money out of you. Here's the rundown of my experience. 1. They first ask you the purpose and mileage of your proposed trip. 2. They then give you the least compatible vehicle for such a trip. 3. Then when you ask for an obviously more suitable vehicle they get into the upcharge/upgrade game. 4. This deal quickly turns into getting an economy car at the intermediate grade price. The Compact car rental price was just $1 more than the "Our Choice" option. So, never again. I'm sure, depending on the scruples of the attendant one might get a good deal, but as i experienced it this is an unethical practice.

Mangers choiceThrifty's manager's choice at Tri-City airport was a pickup. They wouldn't even hardly tell me what it was until they handed me the keys. The pickup had been smoked in and they had tried to cover it up with a cleaner that smells worse than the smoke.

Overall GoodReceived free upgrade. Car was clean. Price was great.Waited for 15-20 minutes at pick-up even though there was only one other customer. No one was there for the return at 930 in the morning. Just left the keys in the box.

I reserved a "Chevy Spark or similar", when I arrived they said the only thing I could get was a very large quad-cab truck or pay an additional $120 to get a different vehicle. A large quad-cab truck would not work for our needs, was forced to stay at the airport for several hours while working out other means of transportation.
