I couldn’t actually rent the car after traveling to the airport to pickup the car. We were told by Alamo on the phone when we booked the car that we could pay using a debit card if it was attached to a checking account. Upon arriving at the Alamo check in counter we were informed that wasn’t true. Only a major credit card unless we were flying. We were charged for the insurance we chose to opt for. I’ve called Alamo and was told to contact Kayak. Good luck trying to actually talk to someone. I would like my money back. Timothy Frye

Courteous staff. Easy pickup and drop off.Don’t try to upgrade me when the vehicle I want is there. I reserved a convertible because that’s what I want to drive.

Would have been better to get the car I reserved. Went from a Cadillac to a Toyota Corolla. Tiny, can’t get in or out easily. Setting will sits too low as does the seat. Joke of a car!!!

YesI was pulled over by a State Trooper, due to the vehicle having a “Tag Applied For” , instead of an actual license plate. He provided me with the license plate # that’s registered to the vehicle and said he pulled me over because the vehicle should have have a license tag.

nothing, they were not thereI arrived at 11:15 into GSO/PTI airport, and the Alamo staff did not wait, and no other rental agences were still open, so I was forced to get a $70 uber ride to my destination and find a car the next day. No one was available by phone to assist me that evening (even the 24 roadside assist was not answering) and the following day I was able to reach roadside assistance who said that they could not help. I phoned the national office and was told that someone would contact me. No one ever called, apologized, or offered to reimburse me for the extra expense. WORST service I have ever received. You CANNOT count on Alamo.

Absolutely Nothing!!They were supposed to open at 06:30, The one and only employee wandered in @06:52 took him till 7:00 to start addressing customers. It took till 7:34 to get vehicle. I checked with Alamo one prior to ensure vehicle would be on site as I had very tight schedule. Will not recommend, nor rent from them.

Great experience! I rented a car from Enterprise for two weeks while mine was in the shop. Partway in, my rental started leaking air quite badly from one of the tires; I had to fill it multiple times over two days. I called Enterprise, and they immediately switched it out for a different car. The whole transaction took about 5 minutes. Enterprise is definitely my rental company of choice from now on!

9.6 Excellent2020 Feb 03
I had a great experience with my rental, the only reason I give a good and not excellent on cleaning was because the car was washed before I got it, but was a quick wash, mirrors still had salt on them, was really hard to see merging on to the interstate from the airport at night and nowhere to pull off safely to clean them myself. But again, overall was a great experience

Not much. Stood waiting at the counter while the agent was engaged in a personal conversation with someone without a mask. She could not answer questions about the drop off, and could not provide a phone number for the drop off location. Was overcharged for a full tank of gas at the dropoff location, which I will dispute. Refused a paper receipt at dropoff and was told I would get an emailed receipt. When I questioned what the charge would be for fuel, the agent said he did not know. The emailed receipt shows a charge for a full tank of gas, when the tank was over half full. That charge will be disputed. I will try to avoid Thrifty in the future.More attentive staff, provided with better information.

Horrible misleading serviceNothingI reserved a vehicle on carrentals.com and was offered renters insurance at $9/day. There was no option to pay online but i reserved at that price. When I got to the aorport they did not honor my renters insurance price and tried to charge me $29/day. Horrible business practices and unprofessional company. I will NEVER rent with them in my life time.

The truck was great.I wasn't told that there would be a fee to return the car at a different location when I booked the rental. I was quoted three different prices. My credit card was charged more than my receipt. It was complicated to find where to return the keys. I won't use this company again.

5.2 Okay2017 Jun 25
I don't want to blame Budget as a company, but the man behind the counter flat out lied about the rate and what we signed. Yes, you should always read what you sign, but when someone tells you what it is, you expect they are being truthful. Customer service reimbursed 20%, but we never should have been in that position.
9.6 Excellent2017 May 25
Great serviceQuick on the drop off and, when we had to re-rent the same car to drive to another airport because of a weather issue the employee got me back on the road quick and adjusted the rental for the fuel I'd prepaid.

Dollar does it RIGHT!We loved the price for one way from Greensboro, NC to Jacksonville, FL was $30!! No extra fees. Of course i called and specified before I picked up the vehicle what fees were included. $19.99 for vehicle about $10 for taxes and fees. They only give you an hour window of the time you specify pick up to keep the confirmed vehicle. Which worked great for us. We hit traffic and was later 9am reservation. 9:45am pickup.The vehicle didnt have cruise control or armrest. Overall wasnt a bad vehicle. The pickup took us 15-20 minutes. Only one teller at the window. Drop off was quick and very smooth.
5.2 Okay2017 Jan 15
Dollar rental was not supportive when my tire blew- located at the airport - Price was reasonable- Too much time to check in and check out - Dollar computer system couldn't find my reservation because the rental rate from KAYAK was too low - Too far a distance to walk to car from check out counter - It was a blizzard with wind, snow, ice, sleet pouring but no snow brush was included in the car and the tires were standard low quality tires - One of the tires became flat from the cold freezing weather but the rental car didn't include a spare - After the tire was flat and I was stranded on the side of the 85 S freeway at 4 AM, which was iced over, Dollar's roadside assistance couldn't send a tow truck until the morning - After the car was towed back to the airport, the rental car blamed me for the flat tire and charged me for the flat tire and the towing service

The car pick up in Greensboro was not as smooth as it could have been. The car they originally gave me was not the one I reserved. Honest mistake? Not sure. It was corrected but that took more time than it should have. The time to complete the r3ntal agreement at the counter took longer than i have experienced with other rental agencies.

Not one thing.I made reservations and was sent on a‘wild goose chase “ for a car. I was not able to rent a car because the price almost tripled from my original rental price. So I ended up renting a car from Enterprise. (They provided EXCELLENT service)

Staff at Fayetteville were terrible. Greensboro staff was knowledgeable, but first car was not cleaned and ended up with electrical issues and we had to return to Greensboro. Lost over 4 hours on road to backtrack. Next car was also not sealed after sanitizing and was 1,400 miles and 5 months overdue for oil change. THIRD car was fine. Terrible car rental experience.
1.9 Horrible2021 Oct 15
Unfortunately no cars were available for pickup even though we booked a car. The girl at the desk said they tried to get ahold of us, but we didn’t receive an email. They asked us to come back when they could possibly have a car for us but again, we didn’t receive a phone call, email or cancellation of the reservation. I now have to dispute the charges with my credit card company.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 28
it was deja vu all over again. The last time I rented from Hertz I upgraded from a midsize altima to a full size car. Hertz gave me an Altima and said it was a full size. This time I rented a full size suv ie armada,Pathfinder;Explorer. They provided me with a ..Kia Sorrenta which is classified as a mid size suv. Once again Hertz said it was afull size suv I will never rent from Hertz again because they have their own classification system that allows them to downsize you from what you expected and paid for.

1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 24
My reservation was for 3 days and was quoted for $970. The car I was given looked like a clown car. The agent refused to provide me a safer car even though I was paying almost $1000 for a 3 day rental. There were tons of cars in the Hertz parking lot. She was unapologetic and made no effort or attempt to appear to be interested in accommodating my request. She should not be in customer service. very disappointed, had to void my whole reservation.

10.0 Excellent2021 Aug 07
The first car, the truck did not open or close with clicker or button on the trunk door. We had to change cars because it was difficult to close manually. The second car we received did not have a clicker control button or a button on the truck. It had to be opened manually. The clicker with the second car also for some reason did not lock the doors. I instead had to lock the doors with the inside button. I could only unlock the doors with the clicker. I didn’t realize the issue until I left and went to lock the doors. Small issues but not happy with the inconvenience.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 04
Car was great on gas, Clean and dependable. Your system for departure and return, nothing short of the worst rental experience I ever had. Your card reader in Greensboro PTI airport failed to read the strip on the same card used to place the reservation. The clerk informed me that 1. you have no chip readers, 2. He was not at liberty to put the number in manually, 3. cash was not an option and 4. a debit card was also not acceptable. Being told that I was out of luck 700 miles from home left me with no other option than to have my friend come to the airport and change the reservation to his card and add me as an additional driver for which the service charge was a modest 70 dollars! I was also forced to purchase a 100 dollar GPS after being told that none of your cars had their GPS activated! How do you run a car rental company in 2021 like this?! I am a reasonable person. I would have most likely deleted this survey email had I not been breathtakingly dissapointed in this whole transaction. Do better.

Pickup and drop off was close to the terminal in both locations.Two things: 1- Picking up the rental took entirely too long (25 minutes) to bring the car to us. That left us waiting outside in a parking garage in the heat with a 14 month old. 2- Our rental was out of oil at the time of pickup. Avis’s solution was to tell us to go put oil in it ourselves.

Top tips for renting a car in Greensboro

  • Renting a car is the most comfortable and convenient way to tour the city of Greensboro, North Carolina, as well as other main destinations across the state. Explore unmissable attractions such as the International Civil Rights Center and Museum or the Greensboro Arboretum, which is only 3 miles from downtown. For a longer road trip, head to Charlotte, about 90 miles away.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO), which is about 12 miles from Greensboro’s city center. The car hire desks are located near the Baggage Claim area in the airport’s main terminal. The vehicles are typically parked within walking distance.
  • Fall is the best time to visit, as the weather is mostly dry after the typically wet spring and summer, which often see rainfall and thunderstorms. Avoid driving in the downtown area, as it’s usually pretty packed, and park the car in the surrounding areas instead. A good tip to make use of your car is to drive it through the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park for a self-guided tour.
  • Although Greensboro has one of the best commute times in the country, the roads still get busier during rush hour, both in the morning (between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.) and in the evening (between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.). The area near the Coliseum experiences traffic jams every time there’s a big event. The Elm-Eugene stretch downtown and Gate City Boulevard can also get rather busy.
  • Book your rental car in Greensboro at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Greensboro are around 53% cheaper than other car types, on average
