Pros:Upon my arrival, a sign indicated to go to another car rental place due to Advantage being closed. Was not able to pay cash upon drop off which I was told that I could at drop off. The car was not adequate in size as per advertised. It indicated 4 suitcase, however only 2 medium size fit in the back.Cons:Cleaning of the back seat, stains were really visible after you let the arm rest up.Reviewed Sep 9 2020

Pros:Staff at the counter was not very friendly. Charged me a $150 deposit. When will that be returned?Cons:The sign for the counter at the Tampa airport is not very clear. We followed the signs and it led down to the garage and had to go back up to get the keys.Reviewed Apr 20 2021

MisinformedPros:The car was clean. It would've been an economical car to travel in.Cons:We were offered a CHOICE to take or not take the EZ pass for the toll roads. We asked if we really would need it, couldn't we just pay the toll. We were told some tolls u could pay and some not. With our gps we figured we could make it work. ALL toll roads in Florida are now no pay...the take a pic of your plate. And here's maybe why we were given a choice...the average toll is a little over one dollar. The fee we will be charged for the 2 times we drove our car will be 25.00 EACH trip. Talk about inflation! Yes, we were trying to save money..but I feel if this option had been fully explained when questioned about we would've left Florida without feeling screwed.Reviewed Jun 8 2016

Cons:We had reserved a midsize suv and ended up with a choice between a full.size suv which my husband did not want or a compact. The compact was a Nissan Sentra which actually was an okay car but would just like to get the cat that we had reserved months ago! Just annoying... will pay extra at hertz I guess for future rentals.Reviewed Oct 28 2020

Cons:We selected the Toyota camry or similar package, but we were given a lime green kia soul that smelled so awefull for days. This was selected by the guy in the garage with the keys. But the girl at the front desk was more than helpful, she was awesome and friendlyReviewed Oct 4 2020

Cons:We dropped it off early, then got a call that it was late...please bring it back. Also, the sales tactics at check in were slimy at best. So....will avoid AAdvantage due to poor administration.Reviewed Sep 12 2020

Cons:There was no one at the counter when I arrived and the phone numbered given was no longer in service. That made me very leery and concerned. Even the 800 number said “we are not taking calls”, send us an email. After waiting over 25 minutes an agent arrived, but during the check in process he was very short and eventually became very, very rude. To the point that I walked away and rented else where. His name was AJ. It seems this company may be going out of business as while waiting I called Two other locations and their numbers were also not working. To bad because they used to be good with happier employees.Reviewed Aug 16 2020

Will probably never rent from them againPros:The drop off process was quick and easyCons:From the moment I got to Tampa, it was a disaster. The rental location is "off-site" from the airport, which was not mentioned when I set up my reservation. Took 30+ mins for a shuttle to come pick me up from the airport, even though other shuttle companies circled by at least 3-4 times. I called their Tampa office number several times, trying to get information. I left messages, never speaking to a live rep. When I FINALLY got to the off site location, it looked like we were in the ghetto. The place was run down, and inside was disgusting, like they hadn't in weeks. Also, apparently advantage is now part of EZ rentals now (which would have been nice to know, since there was 2 or 3 of those shuttles that drove by withing that 30-45 minute time frame). The only thing that kept me from changing companies right then and there was the sales rep. He was fairly attentive to my complaints, and apologetic... (though I'm not sure if he will take them any higher to get the problems resolved). Another thing I thought was ridiculous, was they charged me a pre-paid toll fee, for $27, when I maybe only accrued $5-$8 in tolls. I'd rather pay my own tolls instead of making someone else money. At least the car was clean, and the drop off process went smoother than picking up. Still, overall I was not impressed and would not recommend themReviewed Oct 15 2015

Pros:The car was cleanCons:The staff was not helpful or friendly. We got charged twice for the insurance because I paid for the insurance online but was not the driver and so they made the driver pay for the insurance again. It was also more expensive than expectedReviewed Nov 24 2020
