Nothing was great about this experience we couldn’t even get our rental because we needed a credit card to put on hold and didn’t have that much on a credit card only on a debit card and was told they couldn’t run that as a credit so had to find another way for our Florida vacation trip I was very dissatisfied
1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 26
The rate was not the same as that was quoted on Kayak. They charged me $94/day and there is no way that I would have chosen such an expensive car when $55/day cars were available. Pickup and drop of were easy but the car was supposedly non-smoking but you could clearly smell the cigarette smoke. Almost $500 dollars for four days of riding around in cigarette smoke.

they helped us with the car we wanted. Also the manager cleaned the car for us which was very nice to get us going.

They didn’t have my rental at all. I never got a car . They said the price was not what they charge so they tried to get me to do the reservation over to pay more money for the car. They didn’t Honor you all’s prices.

The pick up process was so quick and easy! Friendly counter staff! The drop off process was also easy even thought the place was swamped, all of the workers were kind and helpful!We had to wait a bit for a driver, but I believe he said they were short staffed. Maybe clearer signs on where to wait?

I have been going to St Louis every year for 12 years. This year I tried Dollar and was NOT disappointed. From the shuttle driver (once I found it) to the front desk workers it was nice and smooth. They were willing to swap a vehicle (in the same class) when asked for preference reasons. Thank you Dollar!

Great customer service. The pickup spot from the airport was tricky to locate but again, great customer service when I found it. Price is not comparable in my opinion, after imposed fees. It is what it is. I’m just thankful that customer service was not hindering the process.

The pick up was fine but when I returned the vehicle Dollar charged me double!You could help by getting them to honor their original quote. If I get no help from you, I'll never use your service again.

I was in line for over an hour trying to rent a car. The staff did an excellent job. They just needed more help and the manager should have gotten out of his office and helped his team check people in. I finally joined And signed up for fast track and was done in less than 10 minutes.
7.9 Good2021 Aug 02
The pickup instructions for fast pickup were not very clear, and we ended up waiting in a very long line in a hot room for pickup. I tried to do online checkin, but the website kept asking me to enter a valid pickup time, when this was already specified on the reservation, so that piece didn't work well either. The woman who helped us once we got to the front of the line was very helpful, kind, and efficient though. The car was clean, and bigger than we expected. Drop off was very easy, and the shuttle was sitting right there for us, and left right away to take us to the terminal - great service!

Pick up took over an hour as the one person working was cleaning cars. After waiting, the associate was nice and professional. Car was great too!
10.0 Excellent2021 Jun 28
They were excellent! I screwed up and showed up at a different location from where I made the rental reservation. They straightened things out, got me a car—even though they had a long line of people renting vehicles—and even matched my initial rate for me! They turned a near catastrophe into a successful trip.Really, not anything. They were helpful, professional, and friendly.

When I got there I waited in line for an hour and a half, which cost me about 200$ in lost labor being that I was on my way to work in a factory. Also I booked it for 270$ and it ended up costing me about $500. Never using budget again.

Saved a lot!
10.0 Excellent2021 Jul 15
Everything went very smoothly and I saved quite a bit booking through Kayak and picking up the car at a location away from the airport. I really liked the feature of prepaying for the gas so I didn't have to deal with that before dropping off the car. That's always such a pain. Plus they price it so it's even cheaper than buying the gas yourself. Drop off was super easy.

Staff are so rude.Very bad experience, very dirty and nasty inside.First safety, vehicle have lots of problems, without checking and any service, they put in rent and have shows lots of mechanical issues, on way driving, and this is very worse experience I get from hertz. I will never rent any car from this Hertz, and will never recommend to my friends and family.

Being forewarned that the pick-up site was SO FAR AWAY from the airport! They need to offer a free shuttle from the airport. We really got jerked around. Then Hertz charged us for an entire 6 days longer than we used the car.

Overall Very GoodPick up & Drop off was as near perfect as possible.I was not thrilled with the vehicle but that was NOT Alamo's fault. It was the make and model of the pickup. (I would not buy this truck). I think the exit of lot could be marked better but it was not horrible.

Alamo had no cars when I landed at 12:30 am, and I had already paidnothing other then I am hoping the refund process is easythe fact that I didn't get a car that I paid for
9.6 Excellent2017 Apr 16
It fit the need!Nice sized SUV (Ford Escape) given I was hauling my 1-year-old around along with several others. The experience with Alamo was very nice as they got me in and out quickly which I cannot say enough positive things about given I was lugging a baby, car seat, pack n' play, backpack, and diaper bag all by myself.Nothing really. GPS built-in would have been nice but my smartphone wedged near the dash did the trick.

Really bad customer service at the front deskPick up and drop off were really quick.The lady at front desk provided a really bad customer service. She had earphone on one side while talking with me. She really did not want to work at all. I have never confronted this level of bad customer service.

Easy check-out and check-inPrompt service and friendly van drivers to and from STL to Alamo lot. I reserved a "mystery" car at a good price and got a mini Chevy SUV. Not the most comfortable ride, but overall nicer than expected.No driver's manual included in the car.

Rental vehicle was good, customer service fell shoPick up & drop off were quick and easy. The vehicle was clean and perfect for us. Shuttle drivers were friendly.Customer service at the front counter was not what I expected. Agents didn't acknowledge me and my sister when we entered the building and there were no other customers. When we finally got helped and asked for clarification we felt we were bothering them. We left with a bad feeling.

Windy WalkCustomer Service was pleasant. Car was washed and clean.Customer Service was good until I was asked if I was a Muslim all because I was wearing a bow tie. I don't believe that she was being racist. But she was a bit uncouth. Then I had to walk across the parking lot in the blistering wind to select my car. Fix how customers receive their cars immediately. I waited 15 to get my car. Drop off location was a bit confusing to find the exact location to drop off car.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jan 15
They truly tried .We came in on Christmas Day and there was a shortage of cars with flights delayed and rerouted passengers. So their systems were skewed with last minute changes. They worked so hard and were honestly trying to do their best to please so many frustrated customers. We appreciated their efforts through the hectic process and pleased that they were able to provide a car for us through all their confusion.
