1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 10
There could have been someone at the counter for me to pick up my reserved rental. This was very stressful and I ended up paying almost twice as much to rent another car from a different company. Poor communication and very frustrating.

we ordered a larger car but because we were picking up and dropping off in another stage we were told we had no choice but to use a smaller one, even after we complained that the one we were given made sounds and seemed unsteady when we took it for a ride

It was a horrible experienceThe lady said my reservation through your site meant nothing and I was stranded at the Montgomery Airport for 24 hours.... I will not be using Kayak ever again and will not recommend this to anyone I know...

Absolutely nothing!!!!!We flew to Montgomery Alabama because hertz said they had a rental car. We took an Uber from the airport to hertz and when we arrived they said that we didn’t have a car and that the system was letting people reserve cars even though they had none. We had a reservation number and a confirmation email that said no need to call we have your car. We were stuck in the middle of Montgomery Alabama and had to take a $400 Uber ride to Florida to get a rental car. They were not sympathetic or understanding. I will be sharing my experience with hertz on every platform I possibly can to ensure no one rents from them.

I love being able to get the car so easily, and the employees were extremely helpful when I needed help understanding the invoice. I had to call after the rental was over, and they were very professional even though I wasn't understanding the invoice. They never talked down to me or made me feel embarrassed because I needed some clarification. Their response time was very fast, even though they had to do a little research in order to take several screen shots that helped me understand the situation.There was no part of the rental experience from booking to completion that could have been better.

No, We drove 45 min to pickup vehicle & was told by a very rude staff member. We are out of cars to rent. I explained I drove nearly an hour & she said to me “what you want me to do about it, we out “ so I left without a rental.Had a vehicle available. I will never use hertz again

They did not have the van that I reserved. They never called me in advance to let me know that they didn’t have a vehicle for me. They didn’t offer me any other options. I will never book with hertz again.

The price was great!I did not appreciate the fact that the car did not have a full tank of gas when I got in it. I also did not appreciate that the car smelled like an old stale bar. Clearly the person or people who had rented the vehicle before me smoked in the vehicle and left their stench.

Staff was friendly.Not one ‘confirmed’ vehicle was EVER available. Nearly COMPLETELY ruined my trip. I had to use another way to find a rental. And it wasn’t Budget.
6.0 Good2021 May 30
the woman at the counter was very nice and pretty efficient. Drop off was quick and easy as wellThey didn't honor the price that I was quoted. It should have been $165 and instead they charged me. about $30 more. Said some baloney about the airport fees not being added in. The price said it already included taxes and fees. When you are standing at the check out counter needing your car, they have you over a barrel. I'm sure that that is their plan. What can you do? You have to have a car, you are in a city that is not your hometown and you have no choice but to pay. Not a very honest way to conduct business
8.4 Excellent2019 Aug 10
The pick up location was the airport. Their system said it was on the other side of town. They wanted me to pay extra to get it at the location I made the reservation at I refused to pay extra and got it at the airportEmployee should exercise common sense and read the documents presented by customer

hidden feescar itself was finehidden airport tax fees, etc. which were not included/mentioned in the kayak reservation. I ended up traveling further to get a "cheaper" car which ended up being just as expensive as everywhere else.

Best car rental experience of recent times.I was impressed with the ease of picking up the car and the drop off. For some reason, some agencies can take a half hour to get you into the car. At the counter in MGM, it was easy and it was fast. The car was new, clean and performed wonderfully. Very positive experience.

I felt like a star ⭐️ or maybe ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ renting from this Avis. The clerk who issued my car was very knowledgeable in local amenities and optimal rental features. I walked up to my car and couldn’t believe I was riding in style. The American compact is much bigger than the European style I was expecting. Car was very modern, all the bells and whistles. Made my travels around Montgomery a pleasure.Adding pickup/return to the parking signs. Only because I was a little uncertain if I should park the same place I picked up. But when I couldn’t find any better guidance I just went for it and it worked out
8.8 Excellent2019 Dec 09
The staff at MGM Airport was friendly, efficient and very helpful. I liked the car, in general. The access to the car rental parking for pick up and drop off is very convenient.The Tire pressure light went on soon after we picked up the rental. This has happened now with the last 3 cars that I have rented from various agencies in different parts of the world, so I did not panic as when it happened the first time, however it did mean personal time taken away from my day to keep checking the tire pressure. The interior of the car smelled like previous renters had smoked in it. I know that isn't Avis' fault and they now have a document to sign for smokers. As a non-smoker however, getting into a smelly car is unpleasant.
7.2 Good2019 Apr 17
Pick up agent in the drop off agent were very kind and extremely knowledgeable about different questions that I had prior to purchase and also after.The car's room but that is more than manufacturer and also my overestimating space.
4.4 Okay2019 Apr 15
car was there is the best you can sayCould move a bit faster or at least with some sense of urgency to more customers out. Also was told and signed for a full tank of gas and was missing one quarter of a tank. I had already signed at the counter because who would believe they would get a car with less than a full tank.

The Avis representative at the desk was rude, and told me "the corporate office doesn't know what's in stock, never trust them". I will never rent through them again!!!Absolutely nothing...

It’s exceptionally frustrating to book a reservation, speak to someone on-site, and pay to Uber to pick-up the vehicle only to be told one is not available that day. Such a waste of time. It’s more fault of the rental company than Kayak, however Kayak need to be aware of such issues if they are going to continue partnering with those companies.

Reservation was cancelled, so I ended up being out of pocket for an insurance policy and didn’t even get a car.

No car availableI liked the email confirmation.According to the email confirmation, I arrived before 7pm to pickup the vehicle and the customer sales rep informed me they had no available vehicles and it wasn't guaranteed any would be available. Such an inconvenience! So I went to Hertz and they did have vehicles.

The people at the downtown office of Montgomery Alabama were very apologetic and were very accommodating. Very ProfessionalI booked this through Kayak and it wasn't at the airport location. I had to pay a taxi $25.00 to get me to the downtown location. I was very irate and tired after a long trip. The least Enterprise could do was have someone take us to the downtown location for free. On kayak, it should give us a choice of the location we want. We have no clue.

Great dealSuper efficient helpful service, great lady there we interacted with. Such a brilliant deal we had. So glad we rented from a local location and not the airport.

There wasn’t any staff there. Just a sign saying they didn’t have any cars available even though I had reserved one already.Actually having a car, or at least communicating with me about not having a car after I already had a reservation
8.4 Excellent2020 Jul 23
Drop off was a little confusing but we figured it out. Mainly because Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty all combined their locations at airport. Little heads up would have been nice.
3.2 Mediocre2020 Jun 24
Absolutely nothing. I have no idea how my experience did not constitute fraud and will be complaining to every authority I can think of.Despite paying for my reservation days in advance, when I arrived there were not even any Thrifty staff at the airport. A Hertz employee informed me that Thrifty had rented out all their cars and gone home, but would honor my reservation the following day when possible. I was staying in town for two days. What does "reservation" mean if not that my car was reserved? Why would you rent a reserved car to someone else when I already paid for it in advance? How can someone "honor" my reservation after it is too late to use it?

Pick up in Hope Hull Montgomery Airport, Alabama, was OK. I reported rub marks to the agent at the airport on the form provided. The car was clean but did have rub marks on the outside, which were documented by photos before the car was moved. Dropped car off as rented at Dayton International Airport, Ohio before 9:00am and deposited the keys in the drop box before 9:00 am. Convenient BUT RISKY.NO Honesty in charging, integrity, communications = ALL lacking! NO receipt every provided by mail or email. I was charged $137.37, not the $117.39 quoted, with NO explanation and NO communications. Bait and Switch. I dropped the car off at Dayton International Airport as directed on Sunday morning before 9:00 am. No agent was there so paperwork was deposited in box as directed by signs. I filed a left item report on line as directed by Thrify on a CD left in the car - nothing done and nothing said. NO communications. I have photos that there was no damage to the car. I feel cheated. I feel like a theft has occurred in the taking of additional money without explanation. POOR business practice. DISHONEST business practice.

Good to ExcellentThe vehicle, rate and free mileage was the magic combination for us! No way we could have gotten anything that had the required room for the cost!!The vehicle interior should have been thoroughly cleaned. When we folded down seats for storage, a ton of Fruit Loops and other food items hit the floor, including drink stains on the carpet. We made sure we took care of the cereal before returning it though. Our pick up and drop off location was the local airport, so Dollar shared a desk with Hertz. The shared location and the business of an airport makes the counter experience less than "excellent", but the rate to pick up at the airport is much cheaper. So, it all evens out.
