Signage for Alamo as you come off elevator at DCA was a little confusing. You have to stay on level A1 to get your contract, then bring contract to Level A3 to pick up car. We went to A3 first because it was the only signage we saw. That meant we had to return to A1. Not a huge deal, but a time saver if you know it. Other than that, Alamo was A+ all the way!!!

Hyundai Accent gets good gas mileage, but I booked a mid size vehicle. The attendant said we only have this left. He was with another company so didn’t go over anything. Used to taking pictures of any scratches or holes in seats. We have photos that the car had wear before we drove it. Over 40 k miles on a rental. A little higher than normal.

I rented a midsize suv such as the RAV 4. Alamo initially offered a small mitsubishi "suv" at the garage. I declined and they provided an "upgrade" to a chevy equinox...another compact suv nice car but one class lower than the midsize billed. Very nice staff, but that was wrong.

Absolutely nothing.I didn't get to rent the car because after calling Alamo multiple times to confirm policies, I spent 30$ taking an Uber to the airport only to be told I had been given wrong information and they would not rent me the car. It nearly cost me a night of my vacation and I ultimately had to borrow a car at great inconvenience to a family member. Will never ever use Alamo again.

Staff not friendly or very helpful. No directions as to where car was or what car was reserved for my family. I was told to go to zone 2 at Reagan National airport only to have no one around and after finally finding someone I was told zone shut down and go back to office for help. Only bright spot was the young upbeat woman i met upon returning the car.

The pickup was really subpar. We had reserved a full size vehicle. When we arrived, they told us to go ahead and pick any vehicle off the back wall cause those were full size sedans. When we got there, there were only two vehicles and they were both compact SUV’s. When we asked a worker , he responded, you can pick anything off this wall, when we reiterated that there were no full size vehicles here, he became agitated and said this is all you get and turned around and walked away. I questioned why he was upset with us and what the issue was but he ignored us and kept walking. After waiting a bit one full size sedan was brought to the lone. We got in the car and unfortunately for us it smelled like smoke. I am not a smoker so not a fan. But we were stuck with this as it was only sedan. In checking out the vehicle in front of us had a problem with the scan. We were stuck for fifteen. Minutes at least (it was 15 from when we started timing). We asked staff if they can maybe move that vehicle forward to get the long line behind moving and one staff member said they would but then a second one can by and said we just had to wait for problem to be fixed. The car was good other than the smoke smell and drop off was good. I have never used Hertz before (always have done Enterprise, Avis or Alamo). Not sure I will use Hertz again

Everything backed up on pickup day, mid-afternoon on a Friday. People waiting 1-2 hours for their car. Would have been helpful to have a text alert so we could search alternatives. Otherwise car was fine (except multiple dings already on it that I hope had been documented before so we don't get into an argument if they charge us) and dropoff a piece of cake.

Never got to pick up the car. The staff gave away the last car despite many of us having a reservation. They were very rude and unsympathetic. I was stranded 2 hours from my destination and had to sleep with rats and homeless people outside. Worst experience of my life and the staff there at Hertz treated me horribly. To do better treat your customers with dignity and respect and have a car ready for people who reserved it

I liked the car upgrade. The Dodge Challenger was very fun to drive. The car cleanliness was awful. The car reeked of smoke and it was not clean inside or outside. The windshield had smudges and watermarks that made it difficult to see driving when the sun was low in the sky. The cupholders had food stains in them. The smoke odor caused me to suffer from allergies and I lost sleep and productivity at work. The mileage on the car that was applied to my receipt was inaccurate. I drive the car less than 150 miles, but the receipt said 320 miles.

I booked the Nissan Pathfinder for the trip because it is big and save gas for the long distance. When I came there and received the Ford Explorer. I asked why they changed. A receptionist told that was the same just believed them. However, the car was small, left passenger door unable open, trunk car’s small, including the smoking smell. The car ran out of gas very quickly. The car used expensive gas and ran 17-18mpg. That was suck. I lost my believe in them. I gave them the feedback from Johann Gorjon: “ I deeply regret that we were not able to meet your expectations regarding your past rental. When you make a booking , its in the car class and not the make and model. If it showed a pathfinder or similar.” It seems like that my fault. That is really ridiculous and unprofessional. I had asked 2 times for confirmation and that was all I received. no credibility

Booked through Priceline and after calling budget directly, they said the rental was cancelled/denied. Priceline on the other hand said it was still valid and budget had not cancelled. I think budget gave too good of a price by mistake and cancelled/denied my rental but did not notify Priceline.

After arriving at the airport I walked to the entrance to the area where all the rental companies serve customers. Lo and behold, there's a line stretching forever! I go and wait in line for almost an hour. After all that time passes, one of the Dollar Rental reps announces that there is a shortage of cars! I wait even longer, while some people trickle away. Two hours after reaching the counter, I show them my valid out of state license, which I had recently swapped out with my in-state license. I was told that they would not accept an out of state license because it was marked "invalid" but the local DMV. The representative then said that if I bring my in-state license, upon arrival, they would help me right away and I need not wait in line all over again. So I go and get my in state license from home, which takes me more than an hour, and go straight to the same counter where I was initially refused service. Another guy was sitting there - an Ethiopian/Somali guy with a nasty and hostile attitude named Rob. I explained to Rob in excrutiating detail what I had been through: 1) Waiting in line for hours 2) Car shortage 3) Forced to go home and bring in-state license 4) Promised customer service without having to wait in line after I brought my in-state license. Rob outright REFUSED to help me. He was arrogant, rude, impolite, and when I told him that I would file a complaint against him, he boasted that "by all means". I left the counter and walked out looking for the manager. The manager wasn't present in the manager's spot. I walked back to re-enter the premises and the manager was sitting outside on a stool talking to someone. I explained to the manager the whole saga all over again, and he too was unwilling to believe me. After repeating my story over and over, he finally called the guy who was on the prior shift to confirm the veracity of my situation. I did not hear the conversation the manager had on the phone, but the manager walked with me to Hertz rental and asked the Hertz folks to help me out! Imagine, the Dollar Rental manager has to cut a sorry figure and ask another rental agency to rent me a car, but could not convince his own minion to help me. This was the most unpleasant rental experience of my life. Rob should be fired right away. I here by call on Dollar Rental to dismiss Rob for his horrible, hostile, rude, obnoxious, behavior.

I was charged $10 a gallon to refill the gas tank when i returned it. The final bill was $311 on top of the $343 I already paid to reserve it. Rip off by the fine print. This is the second time this has happened to me when using dollar rental. I will never use them again.
1.9 Horrible2021 Oct 06
I was told to pick any car on the back line, which I did--the first one I came to. When I checked out, they asked if the gas tank was full. It was not. They noted the deficiency and sent me on my way. In the sunlight, I could see that the car was dirty, and there was a newspaper on the floor. In short, the car was not serviced before it was put on the line to rent. I won't use Dollar again.

No cars were available when I arrived at dollar despite having a reservation. I was told there would be a15-30 minute wait. There were 10-12 others also waiting for cars. After 45 minutes I was sent to hertz where I was given a mini van instead of the requested midsize. Service was good but I’ve heard that a lack of cars at National airport is a common problem.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 07
I was charged $377.26 extra and I have no clue what that charge is for. Didn’t even receive a receipt for this charge. This $377 is on top of $1097.33 I already paid before the trip started. Definitely not worth $1400. Use another rental company. You will save more.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 06
The pick up process for Dollar is fundamentally broken. Most other rental car companies have a way to expedite the pick up process by entering information before you get to the pick up location, but that is not possible with Dollar. Instead you are forced to sit through a process that is way too long per person. In addition, on this particular day there was only one employee working with literally 20 people in line. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt that they had some employees not show up for work, but two major issues: 1. First and foremost is that since it takes so long per person, I had to wait for an hour and half to get my car. If they were more efficient per person it would have help them get through this situation. 2. Second, I was there for an hour and a half, but the people an hour ahead of me told me they were in line for an hour as well. So, Dollar management couldn't get someone there as backup in the middle of the day with 2 and a half hours? That is unacceptable in my opinion for a major car rental company at a major airport at prime business hours.

When the agent looked up my reservation at the counter he noted it was a same day rental and he was out of cars and couldn't honor the reservation causing significant disruption to my travel plans. Thirfty should not be listed as a rental option on Kayak the same day if vehicles are not guaranteed to be available. If this is standard practice for Kayak and/or Thrifty I will not be using either service going forward when I need to book a reservation I can depend on.

The agent working at the airport is very unpleasant. He had me waiting in the line so he could finish playing on his cellphone and then make a personal call. When I had questions regarding the price difference and why I was being charged twice, he wouldn’t give me answer but highlighted portions of the agreement . It felt degrading. The car was not cleaned very well in the back. They vacuumed the floors but not the seats. The pick up experience was much better. The attendant was extremely friendly and helpful.

Despite reservation, no cars. Waited over 1hour, late to meeting w/Feds. Multiple customers w/reservations left after they asked us how long we’d been waiting. Car upholstery covered in white dog hair. I’m allergic to animals - 2 weeks in this rental in 90F - had to put clothes on seats & buy cortisone to stop the rash, Benedryl to control the wheezing. Car rental staff added Sirius instead of gas. I noticed and had them revert to my original online contract. Staff told me I could pay cash for tolls so skipped EZ pass. This wasn’t true. Only 1 toll booth was staffed. So fees forthcoming I’m afraid for no EZ Pass. Return was insane - “Boston Park Plaza” listed as return location on contract is a hotel at the wrong location. Car rental staff told me back out and drive to 4th floor to return where there were no staff, no spots open so after 10 minutes another customer & I left cars. Staff showed up yelling angrily “can’t leave cars!” but would not help us park them. Had staff fix bill when informed Sirius still on it. Made for stressful time to airport.

Absolutely nothing - The entire experience was a nightmare.The car they initially rented to me was broken and required software updates. There were no tenants around to help. I received my second car over an hour later and was unhappy with it due to the car being uncomfortable and full of blind spots (it was different than what I rented as well -- and definitely not any sort of an upgrade or similar to what I rented). The second car they gave me had a bald tire and I experienced a blow out less than 300 feet from the garage door in the driveway leading to/from the rental location. And then they charged me for the blow out.

The cancellation policy was unclear when making the booking. It was unclear how to report the dents I located on the car before I drove away. I paid the DAILY rate, picked up the car at noon, and indicated initially I would return at 9PM. When I inquired about returning the car the next morning instead (4th of July in DC, all the access points to highways were closed to it was extremely difficult to get to the airport), they told me I had to pay a $65 extension fee even though I had paid the equivalent of 24 hours.

I was not able to make the trip due to the Covid-19 outbreak. I tried to cancel my reservation several times but no luck. I'm not sure what kind of business you people are running, but I hope my $60 lasts your lifetime. You obviously need some ethics classes in your company.Do the right thing. Period. $60 is a small price to pay for someone's character, or lack of for that matter. Not pleased, will NEVER recommend this company.

Pick up and drop off was very easy.I purchased the economy upgrade and received a bare bones POS Corolla that had been through a major hail storm and was covered in fairly substantial damage. Everywhere I would drive, police would give me hard looks probably because it looked like I was transporting drugs. Since every other rental company is in the terminal, give this Payless a hard pass. I can't believe they would keep a car like that in the fleet without getting repaired.

Great car but overpricedThe car was great; it was spacious and roomy. We booked an SUV but were given a Ford Fusion. It was more expensive than the SUV, but we were charged the price we were promised at booking, which was really great. We just wish we'd been able to get what we originally reserved--or that we'd been able to book a 4-door sedan at the SUV price (for some reason the SUV is less expensive). But we had plenty of room and the car did what we needed it to do for the week we had it.The only thing we didn't like was that we booked an SUV and were given a sedan. But, since the SUV price we were promised at booking was cheaper than the sedan price, Enterprise honored the price we were given at booking even though they gave us a pricier car. We appreciated that. In order to get the SUV we originally booked, we needed a major credit card. We are a credit-free family, so we didn't have one to offer. Therefore they gave us the size car they could give us without having a major credit card on file. It all worked out fine; just was a bit of a hassle to begin with.

The lone agent at the dungeon-like rental area of Reagan National did her best but was woefully understaffed. It was difficult to find where our car was after that. We ended up with a car with defective brakes which was terrifying, and had to then deal with the hassle of finding another car and returning for a good one which did happen thankfully from another location. Overall abysmal experience, and only offered $150 refund on a $995 bill.Literally everything. That car should never have been allowed off the lot.

one of the worst car rental experiences I've hadThe car was pretty clean and drove decently. There were no major dents or scratches.Pick up was done with an agent that was a bit less than friendly. The car was in desperate need of an oil change and tune-up. Drop off was even worse! The man that did The Returned was abrupt and barely willing to help me in any way with my luggage or anything else. The woman who was driving the shuttle for me back to the airport insisted that I get out in spite of the cold weather and walk so that she didn't have to be inconvenienced by dropping me off at the normal stop. It was cold, I was hauling three pieces of luggage and it only made my experience that much worse! One of the three gentlemen who were on the shuttle who have been picked up at the stop (and had waited far longer than they had expected) called this service "not so ez" car rental. I now understand why he called it that. I won't rent with this service again.

They closed early and stranded us at the airportOur airplane was slightly delayed but still arrived before midnight which is when E-Z rent-A-car closes. But for whatever reason they decided to close at 11PM, before we even landed, which left us stranded and looking for an available car rental at the airport when all other agencies were closing soon. Fortunately we did find one but ended up spending nearly 7 times as much for the car. I have half a mind to file a complaint with the BBB and get EZ to pay for this since it's their fault we were left in that situation. I will NEVER rent a car with them again.

Nothing, EZ rental seems like a scam did not pick up rentalThey do not properly inform customers and try to add hidden charges.

Missing CarWhen I arrived, no car was available. I had to rent a car from another company at a much higher price due to the last-minute change.

Quick and easyThe vehicle was newer and got great fuel mileage. Car was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Staff was great as well including the shuttle driver.

Would pay extra at a competitor next timeWe received a Chevy Cruz and it was very roomy and clean. The price was right but the check-in experience made it an uncomfortable experience. The expectation that I would carry around my personal auto insurance policy is outrageous. I just happened to have an app with my insurance company on my phone showing my name which prevented me from having to pay for the EZ car rental protection plan. I’m a frequent renter of cars and this was a first. Outrageous! We waited over 30 minutes for the shuttle to pick us up at DCA but ended up taking a ride from the hotel next door or would have missed our appointment that we had to rent the car for. My advice is to pay a little extra and be treated fairly and honestly.

I liked the price. There was only 2 other people in line when I went to go pick it up. The process was quick and easy. Drop off was quick.I found orange peels and a fake nail in the seat. Location is a little out of the way, but the price and ease made it worth it.

Very nice carGot a luxury coupe so that was a very pleasant surprise. Fast ride and felt just right for our vacation.When I was first choosing a ride, I was told the car had apple CarPlay, but it in fact did not have that so putting on my navigation was a bit difficult at first but we made it work. I got the 2018 q60 3.0t awd.

Top tips for renting a car at Washington Reagan-National Airport

  • Washington DC is a place unlike any other and offers travellers a wide range of activities to embark on and different sights to see including historical landmarks, current federal buildings, art galleries, museums and much more. Car hire at Washington Reagan-National Airport is a great way to explore the city and its many offerings without being limited by public transport or having to pay hefty fees to move around the city.
  • KAYAK can help you find the cheapest Washington Reagan-National Airport car hire at the click of a button by consolidating the results from several agencies and websites. Your top results will be the most affordable on the day. Consider booking with flexible dates to explore the different deals on offer and avoid booking over a weekend. Lastly, you'll want to book your car hire at Washington Reagan-National Airport as far in advance as possible to ensure you get the best rates. The closer you get to your date of arrival, the less affordable rental cars become.
  • When considering the fuel policy of your car hire at Washington Reagan-National Airport, we suggest choosing a fair fuel policy instead of a full-to-empty fuel policy. If you choose a fair fuel policy, you'll get the car with a full tank of gas and you'll have to return the car with the same level of fuel. If you choose the full-to-empty policy, the car rental agency will charge you a premium cost to fill up the tank. Avoid hidden costs by taking control of your fuel consumption and payment.
  • In order to pick up your car rental at the airport, remember that you will need to produce the same credit card used to make the booking, so keep this with you. You will also need to produce the confirmation details received from KAYAK after your booking. You may also be required to produce proof of address and if you're a foreigner, take your travel itinerary with you just in case.
