TERRIBLE COMPANY TO DEAL WITH!!!Pros:NOTHINGCons:Got to the office and find out bcoz I was a local resident, I will get only 250 miles a day, not the unlimited miles as stated on the contract when I booked the car. If I want to get the unlimited miles, I had to pay $20/per day extra, which was ridiculous. Did not have a time to look for other car rental companies and wind up paying much more than what I signed the first Contract. Secondly, I booked the SUV for my family and they told me at the end that they do not have the SUV in hand so I have to get the Car which I did not want to begin with. Overall HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE experience with the Advantage. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO ADVANTAGE RENT A CAR AGAIN. EVER!! And will advise the others to stay away from them.Reviewed Jan 8 2018

Do not rent from this companyCons:This company is corrupt, they charged me for insurance when I specifically told them I didn't want it and then refused to refund it. They put a bunch of additional items on my bill and refused to take them off when I called them within 24 hours of renting the car. Very, very bad customer service and both the employees found joy in the fact that they would not give me any money back, it was very odd as I don't know any company that would act this way. Really bad experience and very deceptive trade practices, I will be reporting them to the BBB and fighting the charges on my credit card.Reviewed Mar 22 2018

Pros:Overall a great experience. I was nervous not renting from one of the big companies but the value was outstanding and I couldn't pass it up. I ended up with an extra passenger and needed to upgrade to a larger vehicle and they were very accommodating and gave us a mini van for a very reasonable price (versus the outrageous prices usually charged for mini vans). All the rental companies were off site and we arrived on Christmas day so I was a bit worried about how often a shuttle would show up. We waited maybe 5 or 10 minutes max and once we got to the facility everything moved quickly and smoothly. Drop off was a breeze as well. I would definitely rent from Advantage again.Reviewed Jan 7 2016

Advantage San Antonio AirportPros:Nothing.Cons:Everything. Take a ride share there,but forgot my wallet. I talked to the employee to see if they could rent to me without it. No. So I asked what all I need and get told me my driver's license and insurance. I git a ride share back home and back to advantage. So I had now spent over $40 on ride share. I only had a debit card available and they would not rent to me. I was very unhappy. I explained my situation how I had already spent over $40 to get there and the employee mentioned nothing to me about needing a credit card. The manager was unhelpful and very much uninterested in my situation. The employee I first spoke is now arguing with my with a loud volume in hospital voice and very confrontational. He was dealing with another customer that gad a young child with him. This employee walks towards me in a threatening manner. He is a muscular and fit individual wearing a shirt that's two sizes two small fir him and he looks like he's busting out of it. He makes comments about how he will take care of me and that i need to shut up before he makes me outside. I took these as physical threats. The manager just stood there not saying a word to the employee. I asked the mngr if he would interject and tell the employee to stop with his threatening behavior, but the mngr chose to do nothing. I felt extremely unsafe and was ready to defend myself at all costs. I left the establishment without a rental and had to get another ride share home. My vehicle was in the repair shop so I needed a rental until it was repaired. So I am not out about $60 for the ride shares. This was a horrible experience and is unexceptionable. I would like to know exactly how this will be handled by higher up managers. I would also like to be compensated for the ride share. I would never had mad this reservation knowing this would happen.Reviewed Nov 21 2017

Hidden charges!!!Pros:Great carCons:It took them forever to pick us up at the airport. Then when we got the receipt there was over a hundred and twenty dollars of charges we didn't know we would be paying. We declined extra insurance but were charged 25 dollars a day for it. Then some other random charges. For things we didn't understand. I've rented with kayak a number of times in the past and have had no issues. I'm nervous to ever try and use kayak again.Reviewed Jan 17 2017

Cons:I filled the car with gas before my return. They charged me for gas anyway, which is very dishonest. Two days later, they still haven't confirmed that I will be reimbursed.Reviewed Feb 18 2019

Check in and check out worldsPros:Rental return was an absolute breeze.Cons:Waited for off airport shuttle transportation for at least 30 minutes and no answer to phone to request it. Waited another 1+20 minutes for the rental process to be completed. All this near midnight with a 2+40 minute drive to complete. With four renters the process seemed overwhemed. Car was somewhat clean but windshield was well spotted with bugs.Reviewed Sep 5 2016

The car was very comfortable. Chrysler 200 easy toPros:I appreciated our shuttle driver that brought us to pick up our car. He gave us good tips to prepare for our drive around the city of San Antonio. The wear Ther was a mess, but getting a heads up on the flood area made it easier to maneuver. Checking the car in and out was a breeze. Thanks for having such wonderful staff.Cons:The only disappointment was my trip was not longer. ThanksReviewed Jun 9 2016

Not what I expectedPros:The vehicle got good fuel mileage.Cons:Booked a "Jeep or similar". I don't think a tiny Mitsubishi SUV is at all similar to a Jeep. If you don't have Jeeps, allow us the courtesy to call it what it is. "Mitsubishi or similar" Booked a rental from Advantage based primarily on the fact that the location said "In terminal" . Fount out that this was a blatant lie. There is an in terminal counter that is not staffed. To get to the staffed counter and car, you HAVE TO TAKE A SHUTTLE. Don't call it "IN TERMINAL" if it is NOT. I didn't want to wait for a shuttle, heft my luggage on and off the shuttle, wait in line at the rental lot because I was last getting my luggage off the crowded shuttle while thinking about how the return trip would be exactly the same. AND I'll have to leave 45 min earlier just to return the car and wait for the shuttle again! $65.00 for a one day rental so you can deal with the company's misrepresentation and lies is ridiculous.Reviewed Mar 2 2016
