8.8 Excellent2019 Oct 30
Pros: The staff during pick up was good.Cons: They didn't have the type of car I reserved, so I ended up with something different. The staff during drop off took a long time with a customer in front of me and never acknowledged me to say he would be right with me.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Mar 05
Cons: The car battery died, I called 24 hour road side assitence, I was told no one was available to help me. I spoke to Nina at a call center in Fla. who promised to call back once a jump start truck was available, she never did. I will never use Budget again.

Pros: Staff at pick-up was friendly and helpful. No staff present at drop-off.Cons: Expensive to add another driver.....
2.0 Mediocre2018 Sep 04
Never got my rental....Pros: Online was easy to use and book. This was the ONLY positive part of the experience.Cons: Counter clerk was rude. once we got there to wrap my car he informed us that I had to have a credit card that my cash was no good. He was very rude and really need some customer service skills in dealing with people. It needs to state when you order your car that they do not except debit cards or cash. Not everyone has a credit card. There is a family behind us that also only had a debit card and cash.

Pros: car and people were great thankyou
10.0 Excellent2017 Nov 06
Satisfied RenterPros: Got the car I desired. Clean and worked perfectlyCons: Its company policy to immediately charge credit card for #200 at start of rental. I;m sure it takes more than immediately to get money back. So did not like the deposit policy

SurprisePros: Easy, quick process.Cons: Rep had to walk out to car to check mileage and gas.... luckily there wasn’t a line.
10.0 Excellent2016 Mar 01
Pros: I like big cars, because I am a big person. The last time I rented, it was a Chevy Malibu, as full size. Well, I had a time getting in and out of that thing. So from now on I want to know for sure that it is a big vehicle. Thanks for the good service, and fine automobileCons: One of the rear seats was unmanageable, for what reason I do not know. The saving grace was that the van was large enough that it didn't matter. We had plenty of room for all of our luggage. My wife takes enough luggage for a week to be gone for two days. Oh well, I had a plenty myself. Anyway, we were exceedingly pleased with the Chrysler Town and Country......RAH

Itinerary ChangeCons: My flight was cancelled therefore I had to drive to an alternate airport. Avis charged me $250 for my drop off location change.

Wrong car is only one leftPros: Car was clean in good shape and ready to goCons: I had reserved a full size car when I got there I was told I was getting a free upgrade to a Jeep only problem is I was going to travel 5 hours on the interstate. When I asked about turning down the upgrade she said it's the only car we have left. But when I went out to get the Jeep the parking spots were full.
8.0 Excellent2017 Jul 26
Pros: nice vehicle.....good rideCons: cost of extra driver very high!
2.0 Mediocre2017 May 18
Cons: I did not take this rental. From the picture shown when booked what was an SUV they offered me a large mini van they had no decent cars to offer. I went to another rental place and got a vehicle
2.0 Mediocre2016 Sep 14
Cons: When I got there I was told that they did not have a vehicle available and they did not offer any additional options for me to get a vehicle. I was forced to go to another location to rent a vehicle. Enterprise has horrible service.
9.2 Excellent2016 Mar 06
Cons: Unmanned desk. Not answering phone. Assisted by the Alamo attendant.

Pros: The Car was not available and I lost a lot of money and time due to the car not being there as arranged. It messed up all my travel plans and I had to scramble to make my flights and find a hotel as I moved out of my apartment that day. Terrible terrible terrible,,Cons: There should be a law against not having the car there. Staff said a reservation does not mean you will get the car. Obviously, they sold my car to a higher bidder
10.0 Excellent2018 Oct 20
Cons: Small airport and no one there except me and I was there at 7:45 am. Alamo did not open until 8. Other car rentals checked in customers before 8 while my agent took a smoke break. No a deal breaker but certainly not promoting customer service
2.0 Mediocre2018 Sep 04
Cons: Never made it to New Bern Alamo
7.6 Good2017 Oct 10
Alamo at New BernPros: The Ford Edge was a comfortable car.Cons: Alamo insurance seems a scan. We took a plan when we booked but learned at the desk that it was no better than our credit card coverage. So the agent tried to sell us a more expensive plan available only at the time of rental.
6.8 Good2017 Jun 11
Not the vehicle I plannedPros: ComfortableCons: It was a truck. I didn't plan on a truck. Also it was $45 when I got to the counter and it was supposed to be $20!
10.0 Excellent2016 Mar 30
Pros: I was running a couple hours late to pick up my rental car, and when I got there they didn't have the small car I had reserved for the weekend. However, the woman at the counter worked with me to find a car that I wanted, and I only had to wait a short time for them to clean the car for me and I was on my way! Alamo was running a great deal and the price could not have been better. The car was clean and in good working condition. Good customer service. Thanks Alamo!
5.2 Okay2016 Jan 23
Really unhelpful manager.Pros: Non-managerial staff at the location was really helpful and friendly. Drop off was quick and easy.Cons: Accused of damaging the car by the drop-off location when the pickup location clearly had failed to document pre-existing damage. Now embroiled in a battle with an overly self-important manager in North Carolina who thinks dragging an innocent customer into an inter-office battle is acceptable when it means enforcing the rules of the business.
6.4 Good2016 Jan 11
Chevy MalibuPros: I loved how comfortable the seats were and how quickly the vehicle heated up. I loved the fact the put exactly what speed you were going right in the middle of the dashboard, because you could be going 70, and only feel like you were going 50 or 55. As for Alamo themselves, the reservation went smooth, the lady at the front desk was awesome, and the process went well overall. So, I would definitely rent another vehicle from them again, just not a Malibu.Cons: We found that the touchscreen for the radio didn't work correctly. And we tried turning the column down and it wouldn't work, until about 10 minutes down the road it decided to work and turned itself off and then back on. Also didn't like the way the vehicle would shutdown when you came to a stop at a red light or stop sign. This is a grandma/grandpa car. It has no get up. So expect to have to push the pedal all the way down in order to get up a hill or to pass someone on the highway. I would not rent this car again or buy it ever.
2.0 Mediocre2016 Jan 03
They didn't have a carPros: NothingCons: Thanks to a lack of communication between Kayak and Alamo I was nearly stranded without a vehicle. Thankfully Avis was next door and they had a car and I rented from them.
