I liked the flexibility in changing reservation dates, easy of pick up, drop off and calls to address inquiries. The only lowlight was the difference in cost between what was shared with me during reservation and as of drop off.

Pickup & drop off was relatively painless. Neither rep demonstrated a welcoming attitude. All business. Pickup rep was eating while helping the customer ahead of me at pickup.A quick review of operating functions would have been helpful. I am a senior citizen not used to the new electronic wizardry. My wife & I spent a few minutes doing that at pickup and later again with headlight & windshield wiper settings. Picking up a vehicle and being thrust into traffic with rainy weather is not my idea of fun.

Nothing- see belowThis was the worst rental car experience of my life. I got to the airport and was told that my reservation was cancelled with no warning! Apparently Alamo had sold out all their cars. This was a major inconvenience for me, as I ultimately had to spend $270 getting to and from my destination, instead of the $120 I had paid. If I had also known this before arriving I could have also tried making different arrangements, but also found out that everyone else was sold out by the time I got there too. This was a massive inconvenience and I will never use Alamo again, and it made me seriously question my use of Kayak as well

The staff were wonderful and so attentive. The car was terrific and comfortable. My only point of issue was the price. I feel the.price of a one way rental is excessive. I have used this service for years and a tripling of price is grossly overstated and is NOT COVID related. I feel.companies are using the excuse basis as a money grab.

The pick-up and drop-off was a smooth as I could imagine. Especially when looking around at how the other providers were operating.I got swindled by the associate checking me in. When choosing refuel options, I was shown a price per gallon that I would pay for them to fill up the tank. They "forgot" to mention that I would be charged for a full tank of gas at that price, regardless of amount of fuel used. Definitely tainted the image I previously had of Enterprise.

1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 17
Not only was this rental overpriced, it also had a check engine light on which I didn’t notice until after I left and the cruise control was idiotic (basically won’t let you set it where you want because of some eco setting) but the WORST part came after I dropped it off after paying $1200 for one week and was told by the lady behind the counter that I would be charged $450 for them to vacuum the dog hair from the car!! Never in my life have I heard of such a thing!!! She pointed to a policy that says “up to $450 will he charged” if there is smoking in the car... after that it says “there may be additional charges for excessive soilage...” first of all- neither of those things says you’ll charge me to VACUUM DOG HAIR. They have to vacuum it anyway. I guarantee you if they charge me for that, I will be disputing it in small claims court. That is beyond ridiculous and even if it’s a “small” amount of money to sue over, I will do it to prove a point on how WRONG that is. They could take it to a professional detailer and it STILL wouldn’t cost half that much. Insanity. I will NEVER shop Avis/Budget again (and I am a frequent car renter due to work travel). What a freakin scam!!

The car was very clean. Staff at dropoff was very helpful and friendly.Only one staff member available at pickup, so wait was long. Drop off area wasn't clearly marked, signs should have directed the advantage rentals to use the upcoming ramp. The first turnoff looked like it was the only place to go. The car itself was a very cheap model for the money I spent.

Don't rent from them!They lied to me to get me to buy the 12.99 ezpass transponder. Then I told them THREE TIMES do not charge me for a one way drop off (which is when you drop off the car at a different pick up), and then they STILL charged me $260 for a one way drop off fee when I dropped off the car at the same location. I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND REFUND.
5.2 Okay2019 Jan 01
Unreasonable feesExtremely high toll usage fees, $13 a day plus additional taxes and fees, added to an extra $17 per day! I couldn’t find any gas stations in the vicinity of the airport and could not fill up tank (brought it in around 3/4 full) and was charged $57 to refuel. I have never paid this much for a car rental before - $643 for 9 days or $70 a day!

I wish I could have been able to pick the exact vehicle when ordering online. The first vehicle I was placed in was great, but there was low tire pressure and oil change needed and I was not comfortable driving ten hours with those issues. So I was placed in another vehicle that did not have rear windows. The trip was fine, but I wish the company double checked before hand.

Renting cars at airport if not flying in requires some effort.
3.9 Mediocre2021 Aug 22
Very Poor 1-800 customer service and 3rd party insurance warning. Received notification from airline that flight would be delayed and immediately called the Dollar 1-800 # to verify if office would still be open. Customer service rep stated it would and if not an authorized pickup office would be. I specifically asked if they were certain and the rep stated “yes.” Upon arrival, went to rental shuttle where we and others were informed all rental offices were closed and they were no longer running shuttles. Tried 1-800 number and all offices were closed. This caused for $150 in cab fares that night and the next day, along w/a lot of family strife. Called 1-800 back the next day and they were very unwilling to do anything to assist or accommodate w/the situation or even verify that they would honor the reservation, since it was the next day. Gambled and went back to airport and the desk assistant was very helpful but could provide any credit to the rental due to employee’s miss-information which caused for the $150 in cab fares. Also, while at the service desk, the attendant informed me that they were having issues w/the 3rd party insurance provider from Kayak’s site making payments on claims and that Dollar had filed suit against them on the issue. Called the 3rd party provider canceled plan and got refunded w/no issues from them.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 16
We waited in line for 45 minutes to get our car at the Dollar desk at IAH. Every other rental car company had no line. (Family members said it was the same the day before) And once we got to the counter the agent was extremely rude. It was a total disaster. I will never rent from Dollar ever again based on that experience.

I rented and paid for a Nissan Pathfinder, and what I received was a DIRTY, SMELLY, and UNHYGIENIC Nissan Pathfinder. I complained and told them that I do not want this car because it was not clean and smelled. I asked for a similar car to a Pathfinder or something similar brand. I asked if I could take the Yukon that had just been washed/cleaned and the duty manager was extremely rude to me… he told me the only thing he can offer me is a Kia Sorrento or I can walk away, and if I want the Yukon then I’ll need to pay more. Very unprofessional and bad experience with Thrifty and Kayak. Not renting again.

In the rental car area, there were no lines at all except at the Thrifty desk. We had to wait about an hour, and the line was about 20 deep. Other rental places had a self-check in, or you could just go straight to your car. Once we did get to the desk, there were add-on charges after add-on charges that we didn’t know about when we booked. Once we did get to the area to pick up our car, the Thrifty guy had to wander around the lot for several minutes and eventually find other employees to ask which car we were supposed to take. Never again.

Pickup was Horrid.....over 1.5 hours in a line to finally get the vehicle. The actual vehicle porter was quite rude (she needed to understand that we had never picked up a vehicle from her and did not know the procedures). After she pointed us to a row of vehicles and said pick any of those, but once you open the door it's yours. Ok, but when there was a "Cleaned for Hertz" seal on the doorjam, I asked her again and she rudely says, "They All Say That" as she turned, then walked away...... Drop-Off was very fast, but again, seemed Chaotic.

We requested a “mid-size SUV” & were given a tiny crossover (Buick Encore) that could barely fit one large suitcase in the trunk. The car did not seem very clean when we got in (crumbs on the seats/floor, a pen & mask behind the passenger seat) the gas tank was not full (39 miles until empty) & within the first day of driving the car, we started getting “low tire pressure” & “remote key battery needs to be replaced” maintenance notifications. We called Thrifty’s customer service & were put on hold for almost an hour, so we hung-up & called back. After explaining the maintenance messages we were receiving, we were told to take the car back to the rental office to exchange the car, so we drove over 45 minutes back to the airport, waited in line for a half hour only to be told there weren’t any other cars & the issues we had “weren’t a big deal”. We left & had to fill the tire with air every day for the two weeks we rented the car. Now I look at my credit card statement & it appears I’ve been charged twice; by the third-party company I rented the car through online & Thrifty Car Rental! Grrrrrrrrr! Did I mention I was told a supervisor would call me back “within a half hour” to discuss our concerns with our rental car & never did??! Needless to say, we are NOT happy with our Thrifty car rental experience!

The agent was rude, arrogant and discriminatory. He cancelled our pre-paid reservation citing that he felt uncomfortable renting to us after I asked questions and expressed privacy concerns. We walked away after 40 minutes. He called his manager and they both refused to provide the agent’s name. I obtained a rental from an excellent agent at the airport from an entirely different company at the airport. I was in and out in 15 minutes. If you’re thinking of renting from this company…don’t do it. They are unprofessional and do not hold true to the American values and laws regarding privacy. They take videos and pictures of you at the location while also retaining your private details. The arrogant and combative agent insisted on educating me regarding the German ownership of the rental company and demanded that we listen to a long diatribe about how they rent luxury vehicles. Thing is, we were renting a Toyota Corolla. They were just shy of requesting your fingerprints. This company fails to offer service, the agents aren’t required to wear name tags and management agreed with their gross lack of any semblance of customer care. You are better off using any other rental company besides them. The agent sneered and bragged about canceling other people’s pre-paid reservations as if he enjoyed some sort of twisted power in leaving people stranded at the airport (IAH). I left feeling a bit of compassion for the guy as it seems to be the only last bit of control that he can exert in his life. If you forego my warning then please be sure to not ask any questions or express any concern regarding the policies or you will be cut off! like that Seinfeld episode with the soup guy.

Contracted through Enterprise.I didn't like the fact that Kayak sold me insurance, then the the car provider told me that the insurance that I paid for through Kayak would not cover their car. I still don't know the details of who was right on that issue :(

I would have liked for them to honor my reservation. They called the night before to say that they did not have a car to fulfill by reservation and put me on a wait list.Honor reservation / Better online availability confirmation.

Quick dropoff. friendly dropoff. Good car with low mileage.Pickup personnel were a bit brusque. Pickup personnel could not tell me if my wife was also authorized to drive the car.

The guy working the desk in Houston very friendly!The guy grabbing cars was in a rush! I was suppose to have an intermediate SUV, but got a mid-size car. He pulled up and got out, moved on to next costumer. He did not even look over the car

When I arrived in Houston, myself and a group of other people were told that there were absolutely no cars available. This information not only ruined my trip but I felt it was very unprofessional for National to relay this information through the shuttle bus driver rather than a manager. The next day when I called to see if a car was available, I was told that if there was one, my total was be 159. That was DOUBLE my original rental price for half the day. I am extremely dissatisfied with National and will NEVER book with them again.If I had gotten my damn car!

Picking up required my resubmitting my drivers license and credit card again. Should have only needed verification but it was entered in again by the agent.

I’m very disappointed because I paid to kayak for rent a car and protection for one week around 320$ and when I arrive at the airport in Houston I couldn’t pay the taxes with debit card and I never get my money back nor the carI try to email and call kayak every day and I never get reply or my money back. Very very dissapointed. I will never ever book anything with kayak again.

I never received my car. When I booked the car, it told me a total price. When I went to pick up the car, I waited over an hour in line, there were maybe 4 people before me. Then I was told I will be charged $500 extra because my car is being dropped off at a different location. At that point I didn

Reservation was made with a company card that only listed company name and not my personal name. Multiple calls were made prior to my arrival to be sure I would be able to switch this over to my personal card. Upon arrival E-Z was unwilling to change the reservation to my personal card.

No spare tire in the trunk. I had a flat tire while on highway. The low pressure warning lights went off. Stopped the car. And found no spare tire. They had an electric pump in the trunk. That helped me off the road. I had to pump the tire every few hours. That’s life risking. Avoid the it.

Waited for over an hour at the car rental counter to receive my reserved car.

Easy and fast transactionTook few minute to get the car. No hidden fees No issuesMay be the interior should have been cleaned better. Someone before me had spelled some liquid on the dashboard and there were some stains there. Overall very clean car.

Never againI was UNABLE to rent my previously reserved mini van for details I will not disclose on this review (please contact me if you would like further details). However, I will say it was due to the employee working that night. If it had not been for my cousin being with me, I would have been stranded without a rental and out the rental fee. All because of the cold hearted (I won’t say how I really feel about him) associate working that evening. I will never again rent from this company and I will never recommend them to anyone. Thanks for nothing.

The car type available on Kayak is not actually available to residents within 65 miles. In addition, if your credit card doesn't swipe once because of a smudge, they don't let you swipe it again and cancel your whole reservation.

I did not even get to use your service.. I was not even notified that I had to call to have someone pick me up me up. When I finally called they couldn't find my reservation even though I had a reservation. I was stuck at the airport. This is a lousy service. You should send a detailed message to your clients telling them exactly what they need to do.. I will never use your service again .

Staff was very nice and helpful. Pick up and drop off was very simple and convenient.Their cars can be inspected better before renting them out to customers. The first rental that was provided brakes and tires were very worn. They did switch us out into a newer vehicle they following day.

Car was filthy when picked up and had to stop by car wash before we got on road. The van has lots of mileage on it (two years old van- year 2018 Dodge Van with nearly 70k miles).DO not use this rental car company!!! POOR quality for the price you paid!!!
