I booked online and when I got to airport they had no cars for me. what is wrong with rental car companies (and airlines) allowing you to book when they have no cars and then having to go to a competitor and getting price gouged?THIS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL

Staff was wonderful!I called an hour prior to pickup to confirm my reservation yet when I arrived to pick it up there were no pickups available. We waited 2 hours and one drove in, we accepted it on the spot. It was our lucky day! The counter staff was very nice.

Booked a rental online. Landed at Savannah airport and there was a line 40 people long waiting to pick up their cars. I have a toddler and can’t wait two hours to pick up a rental car. I had to cancel reservation online and walked over to another company. We spend an outrageous amount of money renting the very last car thrify had on the lot. Not sure if they’re understaffed or what. This also happened 3 years ago at same airport. Not sure what’s going on……the price would’ve been great had i actually gotten the vehicle.

The pickup time was 7am but they don’t actually open until 8:15. So ridiculous.

Super convenient pickup at Savannah airport right from the terminal. Dropoff was confusing as one ramp sign said 'rental dropoff' and another showed some (but not all) rental logos so we exited and circled around twice to find 'Budget.' I don't remember ever having to pay much to add a second driver but we paid almost $200 more to add my wife as a driver and that was a significant expense we had not been expecting.

The line was super long. Waited for half hour and the line barely moved. Glad that I didn’t pay up front so I could just walk away and took Uber to another station for car rental. Very frustrating.

I tried to reserve a car for 1 pm on Saturday Sept. 11 in Savannah GA and did so. The reservation somehow got changed to noon. And your office on Abercorn was closed when I got there. If the office closes at noon, then why give me a noon reservation? I had to go to the airport and thankfully Enterprise helped me. And I now have a $50 pending charge from you on my credit card, and I have no idea why. So not a good experience and it’s apparently going to cost me $50 more dollars.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 11
There was something wrong with the vehicle, it was all over the road as if it needed an alignment or the steering column needed adjustment it was not clean I found trash in the seats on the floor and when I returned the vehicle they said they could feel what I was talking about and then charged my card an extra charge without sending me notification of the charge
3.9 Mediocre2021 Aug 25
The guy at the counter was very friendly and was working as hard as he could. Although I had a reservation, still had to wait in line nearly an hour to pick up the car.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 25
It was the worst experience with customer service. They are complete idiots. Either their training is terrible and mimicking brainless machines or the company is completely inflexible. I rented a car at Hilton Head airport. I wanted to extend my stay for 3 more days and when I called, the price markup was so exorbitant that it was insulting - hundreds of dollars more than reasonable. I was forced to drive the car back to the airport, walk over 3 steps to the Thrifty counter and rent ANOTHER car for the same price I had initially. I mean, OK, so my money isn't that important to you but my experience with Budget and customer service will be remembered for a long time. You might not care about my few dollars but you should care about customers since you're in a service industry.

The Savannah location is incredibly short staffed. Pick up took 3 hours. The car was fine once received but sweet Christ I did not expect to wait that long for a car.
10.0 Excellent2021 Aug 12
Both pick up and return went very smooth and efficient. During pick up Shawna answered all my questions about the operation of vehicle especially how to position the four rear seats. During the return Deion clearly explained the final statement and even agreed to make a minor price adjustment so the final bill was equal to the on-line quoted price. Very happy not to have any "surprise charges" at check out. Deion was very courteous and we look forward to doing business with him in the future.

I rented an SUV for eight days a family vacation with pickup at a Savannah location on E. Victory Drive -- 5:00pm pickup on Friday May 7th. sparing you the small details that only added to the aggravation i'll go right to the miserable punch line -- the location was CLOSED. FOR GOOD. As in NO LONGER IN BUSINESS. I was dropped at the location by an UBER only to be told by a very nice woman packing boxes that this location is no longer active and they had NO CARS. So much for the reservation. And so much for my morning taking Ubers around Savannah to find a car (there was a shortage) I would like to be contacted by someone from Kayak to discuss this experience and understand how this could possibly have happened. I can be reached at MikeS@strausmilk.com or 415 845 8147. thank yoiu.UMMMMM....they could have had a car for me? Or the location from which i supposedly rented (through Kayak) could have still been in business???????

Nothing. The place was temporarily closed. Even though I was sent a reminder email the day before.. Called Priceline to inform them and was told they apologize that their system was not updated. The only thing they could offer me was to cancel without penalty. I was set to travel out of town. Will never use againEverything

The day after booking the car rental on kayak, the hertz location called and said they actually didn't have any cars available. So, it was back to square one with lost time.

The lady who helped us finally get a car was excellent. The company and their policies were bad and highly unprofessional. We reserved a car, but when we arrived, they switched the pick-up from the airport to an office downtown so I had to pay for a taxi. Secondly, there was no car waiting for me. I had to wait for another person to return one. We were told that a reservation and confirmation only guarantee a price, but not a car! This is beyond my comprehension that a company could lie to this level.Ensure that a confirmation on your reservation is a guarantee they will have a car.

Our flight was delayed and by the time we got to rental car counter, nobody was there to help us. We were stranded. Had to take over a $100 Uber ride to our Airbnb. Very unprofessional.

We arrived very late and the employee was fast and friendly and gave us a great car for the week.Really one of the best car rental experiences we've ever had. It was slightly confusing upon returning the car as there was not the typical employee out in the lot to check the car back in so we just went in and dropped off the keys at the counter.

The chance of dropping the car off in Miami rather than at the same office as the pick up. An explanation about the difference in between the pre paid fuel tank option and the self filling. I shouldn’t paid for the pre paid as I wouldn’t do that amount of miles in just two days.

I was searching for a car for airport pickup and drop off- that’s actually a kayak issue that it automatically showed me options in the city and I accidentally rented from the city location 20 mins away from the airport… with 2 little children this was very tough. So poor booking experience and then Enterprise was not the slightest flexible on the drop-off location, not allowing for airport drop off even for a fee and not offering shuttle service from its city location. The car itself was good and in-person associates were fine.

The Enterprise staff was friendly and very helpful. I had asked for an economy car and Kayak gave me a luxury car. When we arrived in Savanah the Enterprise rep asked me if the assigned car was okay and I requested a smaller one. The rep put us in an economy car (my initial request) and saved us $200. Maybe I should have rented directly through Enterprise.

Never received car. Rental appointment made for noon pick up. Got there at 11:45am and the rental car agency was CLOSED!! Very upset and disappointed. The hours posted on door says they close at 12 noon. I understand but don’t allow the customer to make a pick up appointment for 12 noon if you close. Also I was there at 11:45! Door locked and lights out😠😡😠🤬😠😡

The experience was okay, until I brought the vehicle back at the end of our rental agreement. I was charged more by a fast-talking Enterprise rep than what the contract specified and what I'd agreed to a week earlier. I have the documents in hand.

Quick and easy pick up and drop off process. They are not currently letting customers into their office due to COVID, so everything is completed on a tablet while standing outside. All of my information was already in the reservation, so it was a simple transaction for pick up. Drop off was even easier! Renting a car in Savannah instead of at the airport saved us $400 for the week, including the Lyft fee to and from the airport to the Enterprise office.

I was really happy with the overall process. We got a clean Toyota Camry that was basically brand new, car was very clean and we arrived early expecting to wait a little bit but the car was all ready when we arrived. Paperwork was super easy and fast, and the employees were great. I would definitely rent through them again.

Thank goodness the navigation system worked as we used it to get to our destinations.The line to pick up rental was long; waited 1/2 hr-45 min as there weren't enough cars ready for the customers ahead of me to pick up. Staff also mentioned that they were short staffed that day.

DID NOT LIKE At pick up there were only two ladies working. One was a manager of some sort. They were bickering back and forth because they had 12 people in line and no cars to give.Offer the people who had a reservation something because of Thrifty's poor planning. It literally took 20 minutes per person to rent a car. The long haired brunette asked if I wanted a midsize car and I said "no", I rented an intermediate. My rental was WAAAY over what I was supposed to pay.

The Payless counter in Savannah is closed. A sign directed me to the Budget Rental Car counter which had a long line and only 2 agents. There were people standing around for hours waiting for a car to become available. We got lucky and didn't have to wait once we finally checked in, but the car we got was not cleaned. At that point, we had been in line for an hour, so we went ahead and took the dirty car. It smelled like sour milk, but at least it was the size we reserved and otherwise was issue-free.More rental cars are definitely needed in Savannah!!

Payless does not have any employees working at the Savannah airport location. You have to go to Budget/Avis. Then they walk you all the way back to the Payless counter where they have to manually fill out paperwork because computers do not come up properly and the printer is broken. The employee that helped me was fantastic. Had she not been this extra time spent and nonsense would have been a terrible experience. There is no one to check cars back in for Avis/Budget or Payless. For Avis and Budget you can fill out mileage and put it in the box but for Payless you have to go back to Avis and budget wait in line and give them the key and paperwork. They should just add a Payless box. Had that line been longer I could have easily waited 20-30 min just to hand that to someone. The process is not well thought out.

The attendant told me this was because I had used a third party vendor instead of the corporate website. The staff than told me it would be more than double the cost of my reservation for the same and rental length. I left the counter and called the number from my reservation. Provided my name and confirmation number. Everything was according to my reservation. The attendant assured me there was nothing to be done. I paid the day of price and am waiting for a response from Payless corporate.

Stressful time getting car, high priceThe car itself was niceI did not like the impersonal service and being sent to the back of the line when my corporate id did not work. The representative did not put any effort into figuring out my problem. I had to go on the website myself and figure out that I was an emerald club member and make an account, which was very simple. It took 45 minutes for me to get a car. Also, I thought the price was going to be lower than estimated since I reserved the car for 2pm -11pm but only used the car until 6pm. The price was actually more than estimated.
