Never was able to acquire rental car in the chaos of the eclipse. I booked several weeks in advance. They dont offer afterhours pickup. And we're closed on Sunday. Turo is gonna beat all the rental car businesses.Reviewed 2024 Apr 13

Poor phone customer service. Arrived late and missed location opening. Unable to reach anyone by phone q dollar to confirm we would pick up next day. Location was fine but told us to use app to change drop off location. App did not allow that. 15 min on hold to be told we could not bc of the specific car we took. Location did not tell us thatReviewed 2024 Apr 09

Pros:The staff at the Dallas Love desk was very helpful after our flight was re-routed because of the ice storm.Cons:The Dollar rental customer support was unhelpful. We ended up spending over 4 times the planned amount because no one could “help” us. This was not a planned vacation that we had saved for, but rather an unplanned expense, we were going down to bring an ill family member home after they had a stroke on vacation. We were already on a tight budget and the car rental experience made at least part of the trip a nightmare. We were told the original deposit would be refunded but that has not happened so instead of spending under $200, we have spent over $400 and have two separate security holds of $200 each (we had to do 2 separate rentals, one day each in order to keep the bill under $500 not including holds)Reviewed 2021 Feb 21

Top tips for renting a car from Dollar in Austin

  • There are several car types that can be convenient choices for Dollar car rentals in Austin. Compact cars are fuel-efficient and easy to maneuver, making them ideal for city driving and finding parking in downtown Austin, which can be challenging during peak hours. If you're traveling alone or with one or two companions, a compact car can be a practical choice. If you plan to explore the scenic Hill Country or venture off the beaten path, an SUV provides more space and can handle varying terrains. Additionally, SUVs offer a higher driving position, allowing for better visibility. Keep in mind that SUVs may consume more fuel compared to smaller cars.
  • Dollar offers a loyalty program called Dollar Express Rewards. Dollar Express Rewards members can enjoy expedited service at participating locations, allowing for quicker check-ins and check-outs. Members earn Dollar Express Rewards points for qualifying rentals. Points can be earned on rentals at participating Dollar locations. Dollar Express Rewards has two tiers - Dollar Express and Dollar Express Renter Rewards. As you earn more rentals or spend more on rentals, you can move up to the Renter Rewards tier, which offers additional benefits and rewards.
  • When booking Dollar car rentals in Austin, you can benefit from the company’s flexible cancellation policy. If you made a reservation without prepayment, you can typically cancel without a fee if you do so within a certain timeframe, usually 24 to 48 hours before the scheduled pickup time. If you prepaid for your reservation, you can generally receive a full refund if you cancel at least 48 hours before you are supposed to pick up your vehicle.
  • Those who would like to drive their Dollar car rental from Austin to Mexico will usually be allowed to do so. Before embarking on this international road trip, it is important to let Dollar know, as you will likely need to pay for specific coverage and provide extra documentation, such as a copy of your passport.
