An overall very good experience, after bad first iPros:I was very pleased with the vehicle, the value for money, the facilities, and the ease and efficiency of the collection and drop off, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.Cons:My only complaint was that the customer services agent, Sharon, who processed the pre-booked order initially on arrival at the Alamo desk at San Diego, was firstly flippant, sassy, and unfriendly, and then proceeded to use fear based tactics to upsell add-ons for legal cover and insurance. I appreciate that Alamo is a business with a responsbility to return profits to shareholders, but the approach she took was not effective and has somewhat put myself and my companion off using Alamo in the future. Relative to experiences with competitors, such as Enterprise, this left a bad first impression and could be handled better.Reviewed Mar 26 2017

overall good experiencePros:Check in and getting the car all told (shuttle to Alamo, check in, escalator, car, booth, etc.) was pretty fast - about half hour total. Taking car back and getting the ok to head back to shuttle took about 45 seconds. The car was a good sized, the back up camera isn't as nice as my Nissan's, but it worked, and I drove ALL OVER in 3 days, and didn't even get down to half tank - however had plenty of power to merge onto California freeways, go up hills to Balboa park, etc. Perky yet efficient. My favorite part? Ron at the check out booth/gate. What a superb gentleman and so helpful.Cons:I was expecting a Toyota and got a Chrysler...not a fan at all. it was keyless entry and keyless ignition, with a knob shifter - which was set too close to the knob for the temperature controls - I often reached for the wrong one because really you got a 50/50 shot at that point. The car can be locked from the outside with the key fob while the very quiet engine is still running...come to your own conclusions there. the back up camera isn't as nice as my Nissan back home, but it was better than nothing. I opted for Alamo to fill my tank when I got back, so didn't deal with any gas stations. Use siri to get you back to the return if in San Diego - freeway not clearly marked to get back to rentals and I along with a line circled the airport first. Don't try to wing-it.Reviewed May 24 2016

Pros:The Enterprise staff was very helpful since there was no one in the Alamo booth at that hour to pick up the vehicle. I was upgraded to Premium Premium due to no Suburban available to pick up. I enjoyed driving the Cadillac Esclade.Cons:Nothing.Reviewed Sep 2 2020
