Pros:

Unfortunate timing: I picked up the car when the rental agencies were located in terminal but they moved off terminal the next day so that I had to drop off at a new location off terminal with a very bumpy train ride to the terminal. It wasn’t enterprise’s fault but the Tampa airport expansion now requires you to take this train from the rentals to a confusing interim location and then take another train to get to the gates, with insufficient signage.

Cons:

The man who showed me to my car was very nice but I have to say that it felt like a scam when he first asked me did I want to upgrade (and pay the difference) from the economy car I had reserved (I did not) and then upgraded me anyway because there were no economy size left — so had I said yes I would have paId unnecessarily instead of getting the upgrade at no extra charge per standard practice when no cars in your reserved class are available. He then tried a hard sell on getting me to purchase insurance, to the point of scare tactics no other rental agency has ever used on me (“you’ll pay the rental rate every day after you return the car until your insurance company settles the claim”), which left me feeling extremely paranoid the entire trip, when I have used my own insurance for rentals every time in my 20+ years of renting cars (and never before felt so paranoid about some other driver dinging my rental).

Pros:

Car just as described. Good price for the rental. Located right at the airport so no shuttle, and pickup was very quick.

Cons:

Pickup sacrificed speed for detail (would have purchased a toll package if I was told it was available) and dropoff was disorganized (was a busy time for returns, to be fair).

I was extremely disappointed that the clerk at the desk who very insistent that I upgraded the car for ‘safety purposes’ and bought the fuel and additional insurance packages, which was discomforting and intimidating. When I vehemently rejected the offers, they then had the audacity to surreptitiously add the insurance to the ticket anyway, before quickly closing the ticket and telling me where to go to collect the car. It was very deceitful and I was only aware of this upon returning the vehicle. Admittedly my naivety was not double checking that additional items had been added after specifically turning them down - however this was not what I expected. On a positive, the rest of the staff were very polite and helpful, and the hire went smoothly apart from this.

I thought our rental deal was too good to be true. We booked through Kayak, But we were pleasantly surprised with the Tampa airport location. The staff were friendly and didn’t push any extras on us. The rental car was clean (Nissian Versa) the staff friendly & courteous. I would 100 % recommend them if you need a rental car in the Tampa area. Just a side note. I also look the car over before taking it off the lot, I also video the entire car inside and out for damage. And take pictures, it does take a few extra minutes but gives me piece of mind.

When I arrived, I was told that they were out of cars. This was a lie. I waited 30 minutes to get a car while hurricane Ian was bearing down on Florida. The airport closed 3 hours after I left. When I picked up may car I saw at least 50 Sixt cars available. They flat out lied during a hurricane crisis. They had plenty of cars, just none that they would rent to me. I had a full size but they had plenty of SUVs and luxury brands sitting idle. I find this disgusting and would never rent from Sixt or recommend to anyone.

Pros:

This was the worst experience I have ever had with a car rental company. The associated who was to help us, didn't. He not only gave me information that was never shared ahead of time, but then when we pushed back he just said "Do you want the car or not". I have never been treated that way. We left and went to Alamo and received the best experience ever. We even were given a much cheaper price.

Cons:

Do not use Dollar. I observed them treating other customers the same way. One associate was even speaking to friends while trying to help another customer. Those customers just walked away. Such poor customer service.

Pros:

Drop off was easy.

Cons:

There was one agent working on a Saturday afternoon so the line took 1.5hrs to get to the rental counter. Once we got to the counter, the agent told us where to pick up our car and that someone would meet us there. The area he directed us to for our car was empty, no cars. When we finally tracked down what we thought was a clean car and someone to us it was another 25 minutes. While leaving the garage we realized the car was not clean at all. There was trash on the floor, sand on the inside of the doors and pieces of food all over. The check out person didn’t seem to care. As we left the rental car center and proceeded to get on the highway the car started shaking severely at 45 mph. I called Dollar to let them know about the cleanliness and the shaking. The first agent I spoke to told me to fill out something online about the cleanliness that didn’t exist. She then transferred me to someone else. I waited another hour on hold to explain the shaking issue primarily so I wouldn’t be responsible for the damage. No one ever answered. Everything about this could have been better.

Pros:

The car was clean and well maintained. Being offered a choice of vehicles was great.

Cons:

We were not informed of Florida Toll road processes. Since we did not set up toll road options when renting we were unable to use FL tolls without added expense. We also were told we could not add a spouse as an additional driver without an added fee. That was very annoying. It was clear the individual who checked us in hated his job and the customers he was helping.

Cons:

We had made a reservation before our trip to rent a car, when we waited at the rental car counter desk for half an hour, there were only two agents on staff while fifty people waited to get served. When our turn was called, we gave the clerk our confirmation information they said they had no record of our car rental information, that we had already paid in advance for the rental, we had to reapply and start from scratch to fill out forms, this took another half hour while others had to wait longer, then there was only one agent because the other agent took a break, by this time we just wanted to get our car and get on with our business. Bottom line, we paid twice for the rental. No excuse for this to happen, we will never use Dollar again. We made this reservation on March 9 2021 and paid $ 117.00. # J 6951858720. Rental record at Tampa was : 919092370, For all of the inconvenience and embarrassment at Tampa airport, we feel we are entitled to a refund for the $117.00, thank you.

Pros:

Once we actually got to a staff member (after waiting in line for over an hour because the Payless, Avis, and Budget counters were all combined), he was very polite and helpful. The car was new and it was very nice. Drop off was an ease.

Cons:

A warning at least would have been nice about the lack of staffing or the possible extended wait times. The fact that I set a pick up time and expected to go to the counter to get my car, but waited in line for over an hour instead was frustrating to say the least. I have appreciated an offered substantial upgrade or refund for the inconvenience.

There were approximately 50 people in line in front of me. The line moved at a snails pace. They have a scan code while you are standing in line. I suppose it helped marginally. There really seems to be no good reason to have this situation in today's world. Getting everything done electronically is quite simple (only one other counter had a line (10 people). Oh...and of course they didn't have the small sport utility that I was supposed to get...but an Altima (which he tried to convince me was an upgrade..."but I won't charge you for it"). I'll be using any other rental company in the future.

Then told me there were tolls everywhere so then added on for tolls. I didn’t hit one toll booth. I just get money money back for tolls because it’s a scams. You would b able to tell if I hit a toll. I will not use this service only because the customer service was sneaky. I don’t like that and the toll booth is a scam.

Absolutely a loss of money. We arrived at Tampa airport. There was ONE attendant for FOX among 6 other companies. There were approximately 40 people waiting when we got there. The wait time for our car was SIX hours. We abandoned the car and rented at another service. Alot of lost money but spending 6 hours in a line for a car was completely unacceptable. We will never consider them again. Completely third rate!!

We picked up the car late at night, just before Easirent closed. They upgraded us to an SUV which was nice. What they didn't tell us was that every corner was bumped or damaged. One of the tires had a broken or damaged belt, quite noisy. The gas tank was full, but the car was not cleaned - lots of beach sand in the floor board and on the seats and in the folds, candy wrappers on the floor and in cup holders and most definitely the car had not been sanitized. When we rented the car, we were on a schedule and left Tampa, not able to come back and point out the dirtiness and mechanical matters. The staff was cordial and the shuttle drivers great.

Pros:

We cancelled it upon arrival. It was so confusing just getting to the rental car pick up. Then once we arrived we had to wait forever in a hot building where staff were milling about but no one was helping guests! it was going to take at least an hour and a 1/2 to get our car so we cancelled it and called an Uber

Cons:

Everything it was unacceptable

6.0 Okay

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

There was nothing like “liked.” Everything was either below standard or adequate, especially given the rates they charged.

Cons:

I never got a physical rental agreement. Which means if I would have been pulled over by law enforcement, for whatever reason, I’d have to had them my phone and unlock it for them since they emailed the agreement. Being on a trip it’s hard to print it out yourself. I also never received the final paperwork after having returned the car. Even though they said they would.

Cons:

The car could have been cleaner. Since I only rented the car for 3 days, I declined the SunPass, but I should have been told that some of the toll plazas don’t have toll collectors. They did not email me a receipt like they said they would. I tried to call about it but no one is answering the phone.

Pros:

Picked up at the airport in one of the rental cars instead of a shuttle bus, and got to talk to the driver about the company and procedure while going from the airport to the rental location nearby. I hadn't done an all electronic type of rental before. They made it easy. Once you got the app loaded it was easy enough. Nice clean new Audi A4. Also a drop off at the airport, upon return, in the car that you had rented, so you don't have to move your bags or ride in a bus back to the airport. Very convenient to get dropped right at the curb by your airline departure location. Great experience. Helpful people from end to end. I'd use them again.

Cons:

Loading the app on my iphone was a bit of a pain. I couldn't get the pages on the app to scroll correctly so I could fill out the forms. I ultimately had to fill in the needed information to sign up via my laptop. Once I got through that it was easy. And with the app loaded I won't have to go through that again.

Booked thru Kayak and was delayed in picking up due to Southwest Airlines cancelling our flight. We picked up early morning the day after we were to pick up. Reviewing my credit card statement they charged me separately for another rental. I called Fox/Europcar twice to appraise them of my status and was told "no problem". I am now waiting on a response from Fox/Europcar to have those charges removed from my card as I prepaid in mid August for this rental. More to follow but disappointing

This was not a pleasant experience and I would NOT recommend this rental car company. The pick up/drop off location was not at the airport, but actually a “shuttle” ride away, for which I had to wait 25min to be picked up, then a *dangerous* (speeding 75 in a 35) 15 minute drive in a minivan to the location. At this time, they requested PROOF of insurance (not simply attestation or declination, like other car rentals). Well, their policy requires $500,000 liability, not the 400,000 that my insurance covers. Therefore, I was charged another $30/day; the daily charge for the car, so that my original estimate then doubles. Oh, don’t forget the $6/day Sun Pass “activation fee” which, of course, doesn’t include the cost of the tolls themselves. The lady at Green Motion actually told me to: “just put in your GPS to avoid all tolls because we’ll charge you a lot”. Which was simply not an option because of where I needed to go on this trip. Only one person here speaks English, the rest- not a lick. To top it off, there was trash and a McDonalds tangy BBQ sauce packet in the car I received. What I can say positively was that the car was nice and new and got great gas mileage. Definitely won’t be back. I’ll pay the extra few bucks to get a car from enterprise on site.
