Pros: Dropoff staff were friendlyCons: Pickup staff were unaware of time lapse for vehicle waited one and a half hours for vehicle I didn't order
4.0 Okay2020 Aug 20
Pros: Drop off was very easyCons: The executive Synethia at the counter was extremely rude. I was with my 7 month old son and wife. She was hostile, kept on talking to other people and interrupting me when it was my turn. I would have cancelled the reservation right then if we did not need the car for my son.

No cars availableCons: Used your service to book a car. When I showed up they said they had no cars available. Left me scrambling late at night for an alternative.

Alamo Rental in BirminghamPros: This is a complicated review, because I have to balance the negative against several positives that occurred. First, I think I got a good deal on line. Second, we had a horrible flight over with several delays and cancellations due to weather. Instead of arriving in the morning, I reached the rental car desk in the BHM garage about 11:30pm. They were gracious and very helpful, and I needed the car to drive another hour south for the holiday. Finally, there was a mix-up in the billing and the information I received from Alamo 800 number. They were accommodating and resolved it to the best of their ability. They were in a tight spot really. I appreciate their cooperativeness. The car was a pleasure to drive.Cons: Several negatives occurred with this rental. First, the car was not cleaned thoroughly. A jacket was in the back (I gave that to the desk), and it reeked of cigarette smoke. I mean, it did this for over a week. Like driving in a ash can. But we had no choice: This was the only car they had for me at 11:30pm after a bad day of delayed flights due to weather. I had called earlier in the first day to talk to Alamo and they informed me that a second driver could be added for free, and this was standing policy. The desk thought otherwise and added a $150 charge for my wife. I complained and the desk staff upon return graciously took the charge off, and told me this was not their policy. They were in a bad spot with this conflicting information. I felt bad for them. But then again, I have to check my credit card to see what my charges are at the moment.

Got An Upgrade!Pros: We got an upgrade to an SUV with 125 miles on it. Sweet! It was very clean inside. The return was quick and the personnel had us out of there and on out way to our flight quickly.Cons: We had difficulty locating the vehicle in the parking area. It was not in the designated spot we were told it was, and we spent a few minutes trying to find it until my wife hit the vehicle lock function on the remote fob and we saw the lights flashing.

6.8 Good2019 Oct 22
Pros: I liked the fact that I received a hybrid vehicle for my long trip. The gas savings were great.Cons: Both at pick up and drop off the door had a sign that the attendant would return in a few minutes. The car, when received was externally very dirty and had what looked like tape residue on some of the windows. This made inspection difficult, so much so that I missed a chip in the windshield thinking it was a dead bug. Luckily, it had already been reported. Additionally, I had reserved a mid-size car and received a compact. Since it was a hybrid and I was going on a long trip, I didn't complain, but I'm pretty sure that I over paid for a compact car.
7.2 Good2019 Sep 12
Cons: It was not clear to me that there was an offsite Budget, who I actually rented from, and a onsite at the airport Budget. The man in charge was very helpful to honor what I had and made clear that it would be $5 more per day. Which was fine.

5.6 Okay2019 Aug 15
Pros: Returning the rental was easyCons: The cleaning of the car was a joke. This is the third car from budget that I’ve had where the staff just ran it through the car wash while the inside looked messy. Also, the billing is wrong. The bill was more at the end than what was quoted.
4.0 Okay2019 May 21
Pros: Budget had a car in Birmingham. No reservation for me. The customer in front of me had issues picking up his car. They had to call around to find my reservationCons: Kyak said I had a reservation; somebody needed to tell Budget, they had no idea. When I returned the car to Louisville airport, they didn't have it in system, couldn't produce a receipt and said a receipt would be emailed to me. 2 days after drop off I do not have a receipt or proof I dropped the
8.0 Excellent2019 Mar 06
Pros: Staff was friendly. Vehicle was in good condition.Cons: Finding the Budget Rent a Car pick up location (actually inside the public parking structure at Birmingham AL airport) was a hassle. Directions to the booth in the parking garage were poor. Additionally, the return address for vehicle drop off took me to the off-airport office.

Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: They did not have a luxury car. Options were very limited. Very odd colored cars available.
8.0 Excellent2018 Dec 11
Customer Service SketchyPros: Once I finally located the Budget rental car spot in the parking garage, the gentleman was very helpful, I got a very nice car, and the process was simple.Cons: When I arrived at the airport, the Budget rental car desk was unmanned, and there was no signage directing customers to another location. Had to use discovery learning to find the Budget kiosk in the parking garage. I returned the car at 6:20 am and the Budget kiosk wasnt open yet, even though the sign said it would be open at 5 am. When I signed for the rental car, I told them I would be returning it at 6 am. I was told no problem, someone would be there. There wasn't, and because I was expecting a Budget rep to be there, I didn't have a pen to fill out the rental folder with mileage, date or FULL tank. I had to drop the car keys and rental agreement into the box without filling anything out, and HOPE that they charge me correctly. That's not how I prefer to do business.

No one at the counter waited 15 minutes. asked all other counters if they knew where someone was... nothing! then finally she came in, she says nothing, takes our contract and proceeds to say our final bill is 166.dollars and I said "no.. it is 65.81 bill is. and she says "no ma'm you're late and this is what the bill is now be cause you're late" I am not happy and my husband said we can't help no one was at the booth and you certainly were not here for quite a while. I then became upset and said I wanted to see her manager. she then said, well I could have adjusted it but because of your STANK ATTITUDE, I am not. The bill is 166.23. She kept repeating my bill is what it is because of mt STANK ATTITUTDE. She said this 3 times. I recorded her conversation and am going to follow up with Corporate. I will never rent from Thrifty again. Was I upset..., YES don't almost triple my charges and expect me, the consumer to be happy about it when I was 4 minutes late because they were not at the booth!

3.6 Mediocre2020 Jun 22
Cons: When I picked up the van the tire pressure and check engine lights were on. They told me they had it checked and all was good and they were just sensor issues. I was driving 10 hours and didn’t want to break down. The tread on two of the tires was horrid. I didn’t have another option so drove off. The van had a horrid smell like smoke or something. Overall, van rode well and we made it to destination. Drop off location was a challenge.

Cons: I reserved this car for pickup at a designated location and at a designated time, and then also for drop off at a designated location and at a designated time. At no point during my rental exprience - online or in person - did anyone inform me that the location that I'd selected for drop off was actually closed. I am still stuck with this vehicle until the location opens back up (it has been two days). I have tried repeatedly to get assistance through Hertz customer service and it has been a nightmare. So far, the best information I've received is an acknowledgment that the company screwed up, but that they intend to charge me for the days I've been stuck with this car with nowhere to return it. I want a refund -- this has been nowhere near worth it.

Hertz said I needed to cancel the reservation, and re-book directly with Hertz if I wanted to add my Gold number. Of course I would have to lose the rate that I got through you. I'll be right back, I need to go flip my White Snake 8-track tape in my Firebird and comb my mullet...what is this, the 1980s?
4.0 Okay2019 Oct 15
Pros: The vehicle was great. Drove like a tank.Cons: I paid online and then got to the Hertz facility and they nickle and dimed me. I felt slighted. I am not sure that I’ll use Kayak again because of the experience with Hertz.

Pros: Everything went smoothly
10.0 Excellent2019 Aug 06
Pros: The staff was so friendly. I already had my reservation but wanted an upgrade. The car wasn’t ready but they worked as quickly as they could to get me a new contract while they got the car ready. In a short 15 minutes I had a beautiful Cadillac CTS and I was on my way. Thank you Hertz.

Car repair rentalPros: While out of town for business in Tuscaloosa, my car had a starter go out. I was able to rent a vehicle from Birmingham, use it for the remainder of the day and return it the next morning in Tuscaloosa when my car’s repairs were done. Thank you so much for that option!! It saved me so much time and logistical nightmare!
