Wrong car. Bad administration. Impolite Service.Pros:Price and nothing else. Vehicle sucked. 40K miles on a car that was shitty to start.Cons:Booked a full size SEDAN for long trip. Was given a mid sized SUV. Not comfortable and loud as can be on the highway. Was treated poorly when I asked why I didn’t get the full sized sedan I booked when I asked what car I was given. Found out upon return to Fort Lauderdale that the Charleston booking folks screwed up my contract and further administrative work would have to be done between the manager in Fort Lauderdale and the manager in Charleston. Car adaptive cruise control was awful. Made a road trip more dangerous.Reviewed May 25 2018

This is not at the airportPros:The people were nice. The car was hoodCons:When you try to choose Charleston Airport on Kayak it defaults you to this location. We didnt know that this address was a $35 taxi ride away and that they cant help you at the airport unless they charge you $50-$60 more for your rental. Contacted Kayak and they said "not our problem". Price quoted was less than price paid. Apparently additional fees recently added that noone informed us of. Noone willing to honor price quote!Reviewed Apr 13 2017

Pros:The staff was friendly and getting the car was fine, but we requested a mini van and were given a pathfinder. While it fit us and luggage, we could not for any groceries we needed to stop to get.Cons:Giving the car requested on reservation. If we were offered an option of getting a larger SUV, that would have been appreciated.Reviewed Aug 4 2019

Check-In DifficultCons:Check in to get the car took around 25 minutes. The line was about 10 people deep and taking 25 minutes seemed too long to stand and wait. There were 2 customer service reps at the counter. Avis Preferred customers got to go first which means those waiting for the Budget cars had to wait much longer for service.Reviewed Apr 9 2018

Never use them againPros:Not muchCons:Reserved a mini-van for three couples to sightsee. They had none. Gave us a 12 passenger van for three hours then we had to come back and trade it for the mini-van. The mini-van had a warning light I had never seen, neither had the agent. 45 minutes later they gave us another van. No discount offered for inconvenience and poor service.Reviewed Oct 4 2017

Cons:When I tried to extend a day, the rate from Budget was outrageous. I ended up booking another vehicle with another provider and had to drop off and pick up a new car, but, it saved me $45 for one day. Will not use Kayak again unless policy changesdReviewed Dec 10 2018

Pros:NothingCons:They stiffed me on the rental even though o confirmed less than 30 minutes prior to arrival at their office dozens of customers left waiting. No cars. Rental agent was obnoxious. Wanted to make his problem a customer problem. Should be fired.Reviewed Dec 29 2018
