I waited in line for 40 minutes to pick up the car. There has to be a better way than a single agent taking 5+ minutes for every customer in line.

Drop off was super easyReserved a mid size SUV months in advance only to be told they didn’t have any. Said there should be some coming in if I wanted to wait a couple hours. Offered me an “upgrade” to a mid size sedan. Since I didn’t feel like sitting in an airport waiting I took it. He then proceeded to try and charge me over double until I produced the email with the reservation and price. I reserved the type of vehicle I did for ease of getting in and out if I wanted a sporty midsize I would’ve reserved it.

The car was clean and worked great!The wait was ridiculous! I waited over an hour and a half after I had paid and checked in. I was told I would receive a phone call when my vehicle was ready in approximately 30 minutes but didn't receive a call at all. After an hour I went back in line and when I finally reached the counter was told they couldn't find my order! Terrible service.

Reserved a car through Priceline for Panama Beach to be picked up at the airport. Our original flight was cancelled and we arrived 3 hours later than originally planned. The rental company counters were all extremely busy, and I could overhear a lot of people trying to rent cars who had not made reservations, so I was worried they might not have held our reservation for us but they still had our reservation, and the type of vehicle we requested.

When securing vehicle online there was not transparency that the price did not include all applicable fees. When I picked up car $200 extra in fees were added. I thought the car that we got a Mazda 6 was not worth $650

They overbooked cars and didn’t have a car for me, leaving me stranded with my kids after an entire day of flying.

We appreciated being upgraded to a larger vehicle for our trip. We loved getting to drive the expedition but it smelled so bad like cigarette smoke. My leather bags now smell like smoke after driving in the car for a few days. I know it is hard to get the smell of smoke out of the car but maybe an air freshener could have helped mask the smell somewhat.

The staff was great. No issues with pick up and drop box was fairly straight forward.The car smelled heavily of smoke when we got it. The power steering was making odd noises (may require additional power steering fluid). The right rear tire gave a lower pressure warning after having the car for a few hours. No issues after filling it up so didn't appear to be a structural issue.

Excellent Customer ServiceWe had reserved a mid-sized SUV for 4 adults and 4 pieces of luggage. When we went to the car stall and saw a small SUV that actually had the cargo space of a small hatchback, we went back to the counter and requested a larger vehicle, as we had initially reserved. The agent was professional, she apologized and got us into a larger SUV that was perfect for our family.

Car was great. Drop-off was great. Picking up the car took forever. There was one person operating the desk and a line that took just under an hour to get through when I personally was up there for less than 5 minutes. If people are making changes, they need to move to the back of the bus or there needs to be another line for people that have there stuff together.

we waited almost an hour at the Panama City Airport to get our car. We were second in line for the car, but the attendant only worked with gold members if they were in their line so we had to wait until there was nobody in that line for us to get served

The car I've rented was not availableWhen I came to the rental place, lady told me to look elsewhere, they have no vehicles available. So I've ended up with no vehicles at all. Why would you offer a rental deal if you have nothing available.Very unprofessional
2.0 Mediocre2018 Aug 18
Car unavailableWhen I got to the airport, Hertz didn’t have a single car. The lady at the counter said they couldn’t actually guarantee my car until 24 hours following the reservation. In fact, of the seven or so car rental places at the airport, only one car rental place had a car. It was very expensive. So, I was stranded in the middle of nowhere without a vehicle until the next day.

Staff was greatEasy Che k in and great staff made this a good experience. I was a little early and they had no problems with that. I expressed some concerns about the car exterior and they noted it was not my doing.The car exterior was pretty rough when I picked up the car. I took pictures of everything. It also had some kind of tire is due that rubbed when taking a hard left turn.

Try to Charge me $450 cleaning for excessive garbage via letter in the mail to me. When I called the service number they would only take off half …$225!! I asked for proof and they said there was pitchers they had of some wrappers in the back seat and a coffee cup in the cup holder and some Cheerios my son spilled on the back seat … I am declining this charge. Sounds reasonable… This is standard to clean this up with any rental company, and the interior had no damage or stains.

The car they gave me looked dirty inside and the low tire pressure warning light came on as soon as we loaded up and tried to leave. We had to unload and go back to get another car. We were up sold and paid more than we had planned.

Pick up/ drop off was quick and easy.The car got a flat tire. I called the emergency roadside number and was told it would be at least 3 hours before somebody could get to the car. I put the donut on the car and spent the next 2 hours talking to customer service and getting rerouted to another person/number before I finally just gave up. Drove the car on the interstate with a donut on it over an hour back to the Budget office. Nobody at the desk so just left the keys in the drop box.

Didn’t really like anything, except the fact that the car didn’t break down.I had to get three different cars, before I found one that smelled OK. The first two have been smoked in, and when I went back for the third I got some lip from the guy at the desk. I got into the third car, it had been smoked in as well and had not been cleaned. This time they had to use some cherry air freshener, so It smelled like fruity cigarettes. How nice. Also, the car oil change light was on. They did comp my gas, which was nice, but I would rather have paid for my gas and not smelled cherry cigs.

Panama City BeachI reserved the special which was suppose to be a 5 seater. They gave us a Chevy Spark which is only a 4 seater with room to store 2 pieces of luggage. Obviously we all had luggage. So ended up having to upgrade, when I could have reserved a 5 seater for less. Also, the low air pressure light was on.

Wish the rental parking lot at ECP was closer to the counters, or a shuttle was available, it was a long walk. Overall great though!

The entire process was poor. I admit that initially booking the vehicle was easy, but I was not able To change drivers name during booking process so when my daughter went to pick up vehicle they would not rent it to her and instead we had to cancel and book another rental vehicle at more than twice the daily rate. Three day rental went from $180 to $380. Will never use Kayak again.

First of all, this was a bait and switch situation. The car I ordered was not available but had another just like it but for 28.00 more a day. Had no choice. But the car smelled like the person before us was smoking pot and cigarettes. Car was not clean! Poor service all around.
