I did not like anything. ZERO. kayak advertise the daily rates for does not give you a warning about the costly rental insurance which is twice the price of daily rate. Unbelievably disappointed with KAYAK!!Reviewed 2023 Nov 22

The reservation did not actually hold a car for you. Upon arrival, I was told that only prepaid customers were guaranteed the car they reserved. I was told to pay a substantially higher rate for a different car, or go elsewhere. Additionally, the kayak listing leads you to believe that they are part of the main car rental facility at the San Diego Airport. They are not, and multiple shuttles are needed to reach them. This company is a bunch of scam artists and Kayak, priceline, and other major booking companies should not be listing them.Reviewed 2023 Nov 10

The staff was very friendly. However, be aware that this is not at the airport rental car center and you have to take an additional shuttle to thwir facility.Reviewed 2023 Oct 21

Possible bait and switch/scam. I would not recommend them and will not use them in the future. Pickup requires taking a van from main rental car center in San Diego to their location. The vehicle reserved was not available. They said vehicles are only held for 2 hours past submitted pickup time, but this info was not provided by Hotwire when I booked through them. They also mentioned they were overbooked. Only more expensive vehicles were available.Reviewed 2023 Oct 17

They upsell you on cars. Had pre-paid reservation and was told no car available. However, can rent a premium car for $150 more. I have been given free upgrades from the larger rental car companies without any extra charge. I should have looked at other reviews who reference this same issue/behavior. Car was clean.Reviewed 2023 Oct 06

-Too many hidden fees -Communication was not good. I got a text of directions after I picked up my car and spent 1.5 hours navigating my way to the place. There were no signs at the rental car center to direct their company to the shuttle area in the back. Not even a logo or name for Economy Rent a Car on any signs I saw at the rental car center. -car was niceReviewed 2023 Oct 05

I rent frequently from this Economy site and i am always satisfied with the experience. I have been aasusted by Jackie, Ashley, Jason, and the mansger Fernando for my lsst few rentals and am always treated with respect, kindness and professionalism. I have never been given a car that is not very clean and mechsnically sound. I highly recommend Economy and the people are the reason.Reviewed 2023 Oct 02

Would not recommend renting a car with Economy. The staff was extremely rude. The vehicle had obvious damage upon pick up and I when I asked staff if the damage was noted they assured me it was and I would recieve an email with the pictures that same day which I never did. I was also told the vehicle would have a full tank of gas which it did not. When bringing the car back the staff immediately questioned the damage (which was present when I recieved the car) I told them I took my own pictures as proof so they said I was fine to leave. I told them I wanted a receipt showing my charges and a zero balance. After communicating with 3 staff members regarding my request and being told it will just get emailed to me (which I couldn't trust at this point) I finally recieved my requested paper receipt.Reviewed 2023 Sep 24

The 3pm closing on Sunday made return difficult. We returned the cAr at 220 and found that they already had their last shuttle. We had to return the cAr to another location. IrritatingReviewed 2023 Sep 18
