Car was clean & in good condition. Excellent communication from everyone especially the manager Tess & the lady who checked us out at the gate, they could not have been friendlier or more helpful. One exception of when picking up the young lady did not seem to know we were covered for insurance & presented us with a bill for $99 she said which was for an extra day, we were not taking an extra day which was clearly stated on our rental voucher (which she did not want to see) I questioned the amount to be charged & this was amended immediately. Overall would definitely use this service again.

Waited an hour to pick up the car from Oakland airport. Once inside it didn't smell or look very clean. The Passat they gave me got great gas mileage though.

Pros:

The lady was very friendly but I had to wait over 45 minutes. Going across the bridges, it was a bit unclear how much Hertz will charge me?

Cons:

The wait time could have been a LOT less...also, make it clear about crossing the bridges in the Bay Area.

The lied me. The agent sold me an upgrade that I didn't want. He didn't tell me anything about the upgrade, he just said that there was an error that would be solved when I return the car. Surprise: there wasn't any error and they regret to return the money because I signed the contract (that wasn't well explained). It's a scam. Don't rent a car here or in avis.

Pros:

Very easy to drop off

Cons:

I booked through a 3rd party and they accepted my reservation but when I arrived they said they were sold out for a few days. They were able to help me but stressed me out about it first. 3rd party should know exact inventory to prevent this.

Cons:

Sorry my bad. I screwed up. Will actually not fully my fault. I did indicate I wanted to rent from SFO airport and it also apparently gave me options for Oakland airport rentals and I rented a car from there without realizing. Duh! Will anyway it was nonrefundable and I'm screwed out of $140. So since kayak sent me a request via email for a review of my car rental it's fair to say it didn't go so well!

Pros:

nothing

Cons:

I reserved the car and was scheduled to pick it up at 8PM. I showed up a little bit late, and I assume this would be no problem, because the Oakland Airport Rental Car Center is open 24 hours a day. When I got to the car rental center, no one was at the Payless desk, and another lady told me that Payless closes at 8PM. So why would I be allowed to reserve a car for pickup at the time that the desk closes? So anyway, I had to change my trip plans because I had no rental car.

Pros:

The car was decent

Cons:

I was price gouged by the counter staff because my reservation had “expired” and they charged me the walk-in rate which included full insurance. Kayak didn’t give me an option to put in a time to pick up the car so it defaulted to noon, and their policy is that reservations “expire” after 3 hours. Their customer service was atrocious and if given the choice I will never rent a cat from them again.

Sep 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

The driver who picked me up was rude and unprofessional. He told me to get off my phone while I was working on my phone so he could make small chat in which he mentioned what he did with his tips and also complained to me about his manager texting him and not looking at the log in the office. Highly inappropriate for a customer to know the inter-workings of a business. And I felt he was pushing for a tip to the point of being rude, so I did not tip as I was offended by him interrupting my work. It was 9:45 am and I was there on business. It was business hours. An industry catering to working professionals should know this. I was so offended. I let the man at the counter know and he gave me a weak apology. The managers were close by and overheard and did not come over to offer an apology either. Worst Enterprise experience I have ever had.

Pros:

Our first outstanding experience was when we rented the vehicle for our daughters wedding. The Enterprise team on Alameda Ave in Oakland, CA was just as excited for the event as we were! Second terrific experience occurred when I had a mishap with the Enterprise vehicle I rented. I called the 24-hour service line to report the incident. The process was seamless and easy. Definitely will use Enterprise for all car rental needs in the future.

Pros:

Service was great! They picked us up at the airport and provided a quick service checkout. The vehicle was clean and worked properly. They also called before the end to the trip to make sure everything was going well. I would utilize this location again.

Cons:

The only negative were that the wiper blades needed replacement; and the team gave me a discount to the price when I turned in the vehicle in Portland. (Turned a negative item into a positive aspect.)
