Picked up SUV and was told that a crack was in the windshield and it was on back order.I had an appointment so left with the vehicle. I couldn’t believe Alamo would rent with such a large crack. It was in my sight line and I returned it the next day. They only offered me a small Sadan. I ask for a credit of some sort since it was not an SUV that I originally rented. The clerk was very rude. She did state I would receive a 200 $ credit. Will never rent from Alamo again.

Friendly staff at the rental car counter inside the airport.wished the car I ordered (Toyota RAV4) would have been available. Instead I got a Chevy Equinox that was just okay but did not meet my expectations.

Friendly pickup staff personNot having unlimited mileage....promotion was gor 100 free miles....made me conscious of putting too many miles on the vehicle instead of enjoying the journey.

"Gordon" checked us in and we found him to be pleasant / willing to answer any questions that we had. When I got to the car I noticed a rather large "ding" in the front door, passenger side, which was not noted on the initial paperwork. I brought the ding to Gordon's attention and took a photo. Without any fanfare Gordon noted the damage on our paperwork. Gordon also said he would be available during our rental period should any other needs or concerns arise. His attitude was very much appreciated! :)We did not like our experience when we returned the vehicle. The lady just had an attitude that shouted "I don't care!" No greeting.. just, "Picking up or dropping off?" No smile.. no "How was the car?" Just, "Got the keys? Want your paperwork?" So we handed in the mileage / gas tank level and were on our way.

No car availableNo one was at the counter when we arrived. Waited 20 minutes for clerk to show up. ( she was outside walking) When she arrived there was no apology for us waiting. She then informs us they didn't even have the class of vehicle we had reserved (a large SUV) but they MIGHT get one back the following evening. We had to cancel our entire trip loosing $$$. Will not be reserving a car here again. We were charged a $10 by Alamo fee but did get the rest of money back.

Renting at Hertz in Helena was quick and easy. The rental car was a bit too low to the ground for comfortable use.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 09
We had a problem with the smell of the car. We had asked for a no smoking car and when we picked up we were assured all cars were no smoking. We reported it to Hertz so they could fix for next customer. The Hertz representative accused us of creating the small in the car and said they would determine if they would charge us a cleaning fee! We did not have time to return the car for another because we were in a hurry to get to a wedding. They were very rude!!! I will never rent from Hertz Again!!

I liked the cleanliness. Where to take the car back was not explained. Way too expensive for low grade car. Car not good on gas. Will not use Hertz again.🤔

The car was clean & ready - but one tire was seriously low on air. The Hertz employee went above and beyond and had it repaired in short order by a local tire shop. Drop off was a breeze.An excellent experience with great caring staff. What more could I ask for? All rental car agencies charge a significant premium for full size SUV's - so it was quite pricey.

Reserved vehicle was not available. Reserved a full size SUV and tried to give us a minivan to drive Montanas back roads. Ended up getting a small pickup which ended up fine. This after calling 3 times the week before to confirm they would have my vehicle. Vehicle was not cleaned very well both inside and outside. Staff was friendly though and pickup and drop off was smooth as well.

Poor experienceCar was availableCar was not clean, tires out of balance making 1400 mile trip like driving on washboard, no washer fluid, found in bad weather, windows and mirrors badly stained in hard water spots, difficult to use in night driving. This was second car, first car issued had bald tires...refused for safety.

Easy check-in; needed some details consideredOur vehicle was available even though we arrived late. The process for pick-up was easy and the staff person, helpful.Details in cleaning were missed, a few papers from previous renters still in the car..no windshield fluid was in the vehicle. This made for a few extra stops to clean the windshield due to the bugs!

I had a business meeting in Vancouver, WA on Friday at 1:00 pm. I was at my sons in Olympia when I discovered I had a flat tire in the rental car. I called Avis and was directed to their emergency roadside service. They told me it would be 55 minutes and then a tech would be there to fix the flat. He didn’t come for 5 hours. I missed my meeting. They didn’t have any sense of urgency to assist me.

Staff was helpful.When I got my car, one of the tires was very underinflated and I needed to go to get air immediately after pick up.

Unexpected chargeCar condition was fine and acquiring went smoothly.Because we only drove locally and as a means to get ourselves to the airport while our daughter at work, we used less than 75 miles. We were then charged a $15 fee for low mileage. Ridiculous as we spared the car and company wear and tear as a result so why be penalized?
6.4 Good2017 Aug 25
Wrong carThe folks behind the counter were incredibly kind and easy to work with. When the car I reserved wasn't available, they asked what my needs were for renting and made sure I had an alternate available.Sadly the car type I reserved wasn't available. I ended up in a larger car which wasnt terribly inconvenient but I felt like I wasn't getting what I expected.

Cahill and Silas found me a good rate and cleaned the car before giving it to me. My Ford Explorer had Sirius/XM, which was fun as I drove across the country.On a car with fewer than 2,000 miles, I was astonished to get a flat tire. Even worse, it turned out that my rental had no spare tire! No full-size, no "doughnut" size either! Roadside assistance was courteous, but it was estimated to be 4-5 hours before a new vehicle could be delivered. Instead, I drove to a nearby Sears Tire store. Still, the flat delayed my trip by 3.5 hours.

I reserved an intermediate car and got a Nissan Sentra. Is that really an intermediate car? It seemed overpriced for the size and features (no satellite radio, etc). It was late at night and the parking lot was kind of far from the desk so I really didn't have an incentive to complain to the desk clerk. He told me it was a Nissan Sentra, but I'm not really familiar with many makes and models. Surprised when I get NYC area prices in Helena, MT.

No one available at pick upThe car was fine. Slight smell of smoke :-(I waited at the counter at Helena Airport for almost half an hour before anyone showed up. I called the number on te sign at the counter No answer. I called the 800 number, spoke to a person, put on hold, disconnected by rating message. The attendant at the Avis counter went to look for the attendant, no luck. I called the 800 message again, waited, and finally the attendant showed up.
