Pickup and dropoff were great, but my final charged daily rate was significantly higher than the rate I booked, and nobody at Hertz or Priceline was able to help me correct it.

Hertz/Localiza was great. I have rented a lot of cars from them without any problem.The problem was the address for the car rental agency that CarRentals.com sent me via email was incomplete (no street name) so when it put it in google maps and waze nothing would show up. The phone number also wasn't working so it took driving to several locations and over an hour an a half to find the car rental agency.

NOTHING! I WAS SCAMMED BY BUDGET AND KAYAKWhen I reserved the car, I also purchased Car Insurance through the web-site. When I picked up the car I was informed that I either had to purchase insurance for the car or the y would need to place a 12,000 Reais hold for me to take the car (about $4,000). I showed the agent that I had already purchased insurance and was told that that insurance was not valid. My credit card apprioved the rental, but declined the extra 12,000 Reais. I tried to contact them with my cell phone, but the callls would not go through. I asked the agent to place the call (it is a collect call) but was told they were unable to place international calls. After about 20-30 minutes discussion, as "an accomodation to me and with the approval of the supervisor, they would release the car if I purchased the minimum insurance and still be liable for approximately $4000.00." I purchased the insurance as the hotel was about 55 kilometers away and only used the car for the trip back and forth to the hotel. The rest of the time, the car remained parked on the hotel property for the entire week. as I was afraid to use the car to explore the area.

Insurance not accepted, too much bureaucracy, carThe car was good and clean and what we expected.Our insurance was not accepted and we had to pay for another one!!! It took ages until we got the car and also to drop it off. Lots of different forms to fill out and our passport and driver license was copied several times for no reason. We were filling out forms for at least 45 minutes...

The drop-off and shuttle to airport was easy.The shuttle from airport to the rental place wasn't available for some reason, luckily an unaffiliated driver was nice enough to give a ride to the rental place. Because my flight was 2 hrs delayed they didn't hold my reservation and charged me double to rent the same underwhelming vehicle. The staff didn't speak English and weren't very accommodating and the vehicle had no cab so luggage had to be kept in the bed of the truck and exposed at all times. I won't be using Kayak again

Differences in offer an at pick-upThe staff was extremely friendly at pick-up and drop-off.The offer listed a car with automatic transmission. The one made available to us had a manual transmission. While there were no issues with driving the car itself, I feel as a customer it is simply not fair to charge the original amount and deliver a diferent product. I hope this is passed on forward. Thank you.

Rip OffEasy to get the car.They carged us a empty tank, with no reason. We broke a key, which was already in poor condition and they charged us 1200 Reais (380 USD). Never again, be carefull with Alamo(Unidas Car rental Salvador)
