Wouldn't rent to me and canceled the reservationPros:The price was good.Cons:Would not rent to me because the name on my credit card and Drivers license was not an exact match. I use my nickname on my credit cards which is clearly a derivative of my legal name. The two did not match and their company policy is that they must match exactly. I can understand that, even though the policy is not clearly stated on the website. So, if your legal name is Jonathan and your credit cards all say John, be prepared to be refused. I went down the street to Alamo and rented no problems using the same card and license.Reviewed Mar 5 2018

Unprofessional and arbitrary rule.Pros:Price, but other companies have similar prices. I've rented from all LAX companies and this one is at the bottom of the list. Plus is that their seem to have plenty of shuttles.Cons:Requested proof of insurance (which no other rental in the US or outside ever requests). Would not accept my showing online where my insurance company showed payment. I don't believe they were asking other renters and felt discriminated. Had to call my insurance company to email scanned image of insurance card. Then, while none of the agents were serving any clients except the the one sent that had told me she would not rent to me, they made me wait for that one agent - seemed like just to further harass. In addition, be aware, the like Fox Rental, this company requires a deposit - in this case $200.Reviewed Jan 27 2016

Unimpressed, won't be backPros:My husband and I live in Irvine. We flew into LAX with our young daughter and planned to rent a car to drive home. I reserved one through Kayak but once we got to Advantage the company turned us away saying we didn't qualify to rent a car. Apparently if you are local you have to have full coverage insurance on your personal car (instead of just liability, which is completely legal in the state), to rent a car from Advantage. The conpany doesn't even offer their own insurance if you don't -- they just turn you away. So we were stranded! Luckily Alamo was just don't the street. We had no issues renting from them. We are in our young 30s and have excellent credit with no driving history. Not sure why Advantage doesn't want our business but that's fine -- we'll never go there again.Reviewed Jan 7 2017

Lied to at Pick Up - unacceptablePros:The vehicle itself was good, drop off was speedy and virtually no wait for the shuttle to the airport (although the latter possibly by chance).Cons:I have hired cars all over the world during my travels but never been bare faced lied to about 3rd party insurance. My credit card covers me for insurance and has worked out fine on 4 different continents so I didn't want to buy any further insurance. "CJ" at Advantage told me, and I queried with him to make sure he chose his words carefully, that it was 'obligatory'. It is not. I wish that I had seen the other reviews before booking as it is indeed much wiser (and will probably end up less expensive) to use a reputable company instead.Reviewed Feb 8 2016

Worked well, as expected. Would use again.Pros:The agent had a shortage of SUV's and offered a deal on a full-size, but as I needed the high clearance they gave me an SUV as reserved. The vehicle was in good shape, powerful, no issues.Cons:No USB or Bluetooth in the car. I imagine it's the luck of the draw.Reviewed Jul 27 2018

You get what you pay forPros:Decent, clean vehicle but no extras. No automatic locks or windows and manual key entry.Cons:I was told there would be a $200 hold/deposit on my vehicle and they ended up charging the entire amount to my card. Not happy about the way it was not truthfully explained. The shuttle took 40 minutes to get picked up from the airport. I waited another 30-40 minutes to get my vehicle. The vehicle was very basic and older and mostly manual locks, entry and windows but I'd waited so long already I didn't want to make my wait for the car any longer by asking for another. When I returned my vehicle off at 3:45am I was told the shuttle was coming in 15 minutes to take me to the airport. It took 30 minutes and when the driver arrived he parked and got himself some coffee and checked in on some parked vehicles while we all stood outside and watched from the line. They must have been understaffed that early in the morning. Overall not a "bad" experience but I don't think I'll come back.Reviewed Jun 5 2017

Pros:Barely anything.Cons:Initially, we waited more than half an hour for the shuttle to take us from the airport to the car rental. It never came, while other car companies shuttles were coming 3 or 4 times. We had to take a taxi to the car rental! Notwithstanding, when we arrived at Advantadge we faced an unending line, and had to wait there for 1 hour and a half!!!!! until we could be attended to pick up the car! On top of that, while on the road, the car showed an alarm saying "maintenance needed." We almost freaked out. Terrible service, car was under our expectations, and the price was definitely not worth it for the bad experience that we had. Because of the delay to pick up the car we spent hours in traffic to go from LA to Palm Springs, wasted time that we could have enjoyed in the city and suffered a lot of stress. We were really disappointed. We are never renting again or recommending this car rental company.Reviewed May 5 2016

Incredible long line ans hidden feesPros:Car drove wellCons:The line to take the car took exactly 52 minutes from then I arrived in the rental office to when I was able to talk to a person. Total time was 1h02minutes. As a consequence I lost an appointment. Despite my existing coverage thru my card, the teller told me I needed to hire additional coverage. Total cost ended us being double of what I reserved for. The fees were not explained in the booking process. The car was not the model I had booked, this is generally a big deal, but the ca I got seemed worse.Reviewed Sep 3 2018

Worst Car Rental ExperiencePros:Absolutely nothingCons:I prepaid for the car rental, waited a long time for the shuttle, and finally get to the rental office only to be told that they don't have cars at all. If I prepay for the car, I expect to have the car waiting at the designated time, and if not the same car I reserved, at least some car. The staff seemed careless about my problem. Please do not work with this horrible company, because it gives Kayak a bad name - I booked through Kayak, hence I am holding you partially responsible for working with subpar companies that shouldn't exist at all.Reviewed Sep 12 2016

Spend the 5 bucks more and go to Enterprise...Cons:When I arrived at Advantage, the associate, Gopal, who was helping me was on the phone the entire time WHILE helping me. Not sending me somewhere else or telling me to wait. It was a little weird. Then, he told me where to go for my car... I waited for like ten minutes, then went back in like "???", to which Gopal replies, "aren't the keys in the car?" I've never experienced a rental company that they just shoo you off, keys in car, no help from associates or anything. And I travel frequently for work. Then, after driving my car for a day, the AUX function stopped working and I came back to swap it out, because I needed that function for GPS. While the female associate was very apologetic, we went through FIVE faulty cars before finding one that was alright. One of the cars they offered me had a door that sounded like it was about to fall off. Another had been in a moderately severe accident and had the passenger door crushed in. WHY WHY WHY are they offering these cars to people? Fix that sh*t! Returning my car was hassle-free. I guess that's cool. Very shady operation they're running here. Just wanted you all to know.Reviewed Aug 29 2016

Psychotic fraudsCons:I was told to come renew my rental as it was from last year. I got the car on dec 31st! When I said I couldn't come that day, they said they would report the car stolen. I went in and they confiscated the car, even though I had rented it for that day, until 4, and had been told I could extend. The car was full of boxes as I was in the process of moving. They left me on the street with all my stuff, charged me that day plus overcharged my entire rental. This company has at least 3 names so as to dilute they'd bad reviews. They were insane and disgusting. I'm still disputing the overcharge. Do NOT include them in your searches! Worst and most bizarre car rental experience I've ever had after 30 years of global travel!!!Reviewed Jan 28 2016

Pros:My rental for an Advantage car rental was through CarRental.com. I mistakenly pushed a non-refundable rate. I caught it immediately. The refundable rate was only $3 more ($60 vs $57). I tried to correct but the web site wouldn't allow. I tried to phone CarRental.com but they don't accept phone calls (that right there should warn you about using CarRental.com). It was my mistake so I ate the reservation cost and I accept that. However I strongly recommend NEVER use CarRental.com. They are unforgiving!!!!!!!! Terrible company!!!!!!!Cons:NOTHING!!!!!!Reviewed Jul 21 2016
