10.0 ExcellentJun 30 2021
Pros: Staff was amazingCons: Honestly nothing, it was super easy, efficient and fast
10.0 ExcellentMay 29 2021
Pros: The Enterprise staff was efficient, polite, competent, professional.Cons: Maintaining the standard is always a solid objective and worth recognizing.
6.0 GoodMay 25 2021
Pros: While most rental car agencies in Albuquerque had no cars available, this site did. The staff at the pickup location were acceptable in handling renting a car with some concerns; at drop off they were very courteous.Cons: full tank of gas, windshield without damage, tire warning indicator not giving a false warning
8.0 ExcellentMay 17 2021
Pros: Staff at the correct office were great, competent, courteous and helpful.Cons: Car rented in conjunction with travel. Assumption was that it was airport office of Enterprise where car would be acquired. It wasn’t. Had to Uber to city to get car.
8.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Pros: Great staff and support personnelCons: I confused rental site. Instead of airport I accidentally chose downtown. Downtown did not let me have the full size sedan I wanted due to lack of supply at the airport and authorized only a mid sized van which I accepted with disappointment.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: HAVE A CAR. Kayak said they had cars... they did NOT.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 2 2021

5.2 OkayOct 12 2020
Pros: Nice truckCons: Price not what was given at booking
7.2 GoodOct 11 2020
Pros: The guy who helped me check in and out was EXCEPTIONAL.Cons: First time I ever traveled when cars were so hard to get.
2.0 MediocreAug 10 2020
Pros: The supervisor trying to do his best with the situationCons: Provide the total of the rental with all the fees that were going to be associated with the rental. I did use my rental because of the hidden fees that brought the total over a $1000 dollars and it needing to be on a credit card.

2.0 MediocreJul 6 2021
Pros: Free upgradeCons: Wait time and fees
8.0 ExcellentJun 22 2021
Pros: They did upgrade me because the thought the car I had would have a hard time going over mountain passesCons: I can't think of anything.
4.0 OkayJun 15 2021
Pros: We received the type of car that we expected. Drop-off was super quick and easy.Cons: The rental process took well over an hour. Once we received the car, it was dirty. There were potato chips all over floorboard, a bag of opened Gold fish in the console. There was less than half a tank of gas. We cleaned the windshield one time and then the windshield cleaning fluid was empty. Despite being promised by "Dirk" that we would not be charged for bringing the car back with less than a full gas tank, we were charged. When this was discovered, I was on phone hold for 30 minutes to correct the error. Fortunately, there was a note on our record of Dirk's promise and a refund was processed. Will see how long it actually takes to refund the overcharge. This was the least pleasant rental experience I have ever had with a well-known company.
10.0 ExcellentJun 13 2021
Pros: quick to rent and returnCons: windows could have been clean inside
4.0 OkayApr 13 2021
Pros: The fellow at pickup could not have been more friendly and helpful. I have no issue with him.Cons: 1st. There was no mention during the online booking of the car that the rental location was not at the airport, despite my flight booking. I took the shuttle from the airport to the car rental center only to be told that my pickup location was a $30 cab ride away.1 1/2 hours would have been saved. 2nd.The car itself was miserable to drive. The alignment was so bad it wouldn't hold the road, it stunk of smoke, and there was an orange abandoned vehicle sticker on the drivers window obstructing view. For some reason I had trouble maintaining an even highway speed and the cruise didn't work. It made my 2 hour drive feel like 5. Driving this car was a white knuckle experience.
2.0 MediocreApr 13 2021
Pros: There was nothing I liked about this experience. Such a bad experience.Cons: They made a reservation for 12pm for a location that closed... at 12pm. The guy was still there and informed me that they “have been trying to get this changed for sometime” and did nothing to help us. We had to get a ride to another location and they tried to charge us more than double the reservation price. When I asked to speak to the manger on site, I was told that it would be 3-4hrs before she could speak with us. I spent literally hours on the phone with National. When we finally did get the car, they gave us the wrong car and didn’t tell us. When I called to tell them they gave us the wrong car, they directed me to a new location to pick up the right car. Upon arriving at the new location the person on site told me that he “didn’t know why they told us that, I don’t have any cars to give you”. No one at any of these locations were apologetic or tried to help us figure anything out. National ended up giving us a $100 credit which isn’t really that much (IMO) for how much time I spent dealing with this nightmare.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 20 2021
Pros: Car was great, if a bit beat up. I appreciated the rep finding me an AWD vehicle in case of poor weather conditions.Cons: The front seats were a mess, clean, but battered. Not what I expect from a rental, more what I expect borrowing a friend's car.
2.0 MediocreFeb 15 2021
Cons: You did not mention that car had added charges based on mileage. I ended up canceling and felt tricked into it. Not fair

Pros: The ABQ airport only has one rep that covers 5 different companies. It would have been nice to know before hand that hertz was coving the dollar rentals.
10.0 ExcellentDec 16 2020

Clean- Newer CarPros: Everything was great on our trip, the car was clean. The pickup counter talked me into a prepaid fuel. I shouldn't have done this. I only used half a tank. When we went to return the car the attendant took us straight to the airport. Very nice service.
8.8 ExcellentAug 8 2018
had a problem with the carPros: The second car we had was fine -- not as nice as the first, but it worked and got us there. We had a problem with the first car (tire pressure warning light), but after some protests on our part (They couldn't figure out how to start the time for our new car -- they kept the original time we picked up the first car that was faulty!), they finally deducted $15 from our overall charge to compensate for additional time. Wish we'd gotten as nice a car as our first for our replacement, but at least it worked.Cons: A few miles away from the rental agency, a warning light went on and we had to go back to the airport to trade it in. It was very difficult to figure out how to do that. (I found it hard to believe this had never happened before.) We finally got another car but no one could figure out how to clock the new time out for the rental car (so we wouldn't be charged for the hour plus we had spent dealing with replacing the car). However, our insistence prompted the manager to finally take $15 off of the total price to compensate us.
10.0 ExcellentJun 9 2018
Pros: Everything went smoothly. good customer service both the beginning and the end.

8.0 ExcellentMar 18 2021
Pros: staff very friendly and helpful, made the process very quick and didn't waste any time.Cons: the only major issue was that one of the tires of the car was severely underpressurized, and I noticed this several hours into my trip - had I not taken care of it myself, the trip could have been held up by a flat or even worse an accident could have occurred.

2.0 MediocreApr 24 2020
Cons: They charged me over $200 for gas, when I returned the car fully fueled. In corresponding with them they said they would refund some of the money. I haven't seen a cent!
6.8 GoodDec 10 2019
Pros: Car was clean and drop off easy.Cons: They push the fuel option without explaining that you are charged for a full tank of gas regardless of what's in the car when you return, plus it appear that you are then charged taxes on this. Yes, the details are in the contract, but they carefully avoid explaining it. Never do that again. Also, they are less than candid about the insurance option, which probably leads most people to accept the "basic" plan not realizing that it adds dramatically to the cost. I believe that they do these things intentionally and many people end up paying much more than they anticipated. I probably won't use this company again.
6.0 GoodNov 27 2019
Pros: Loved the staff in the morning when we ultimately picked up our car!Cons: When we arrived approximately 3 minutes before closing time, with a reservation, the desk was closed. We were forced to hire an Uber that night and again in the morning to return and get our car. Two other parties also arrived when we did.
5.2 OkayNov 12 2019
Pros: Price was ok.Cons: Have the size of car I reserved available. Have more staff so the wait is shorter.
6.8 GoodSep 23 2019
Pros: The pick-up was horrible due to the hour and 18-minute wait. Other than that, the agent was competent & helpful, the car was fine, and the drop-off was as well.Cons: The pick-up was horrible. One person at the desk with a dozen customers on line. (It's not as if Advantage didn't know how many reservations they had that afternoon.) I waited an hour and 18 minutes (I timed it) to be served. No more Advantage for me.

4.0 OkayJul 8 2021
Pros: The first car we got had a malfunction. We had to switch cars at a different location - Santa Fe airport where Bernard Doo-Kingue was excellent and extremely helpful - the only nice part of our experienceCons: One way rental so we were forced into Hertz. This is not the old Hertz but a new one comparable to Rent-A-Wreck. They didnt have the car we ordered and gave us a smaller one in ABQ. The first car they did give us handled poorly and would frequently light up "MALFUNCTION" on the dash. The lady in the in-town office of Hertz in Santa Fe was grumpy and totally useless. We had to drive out to the airport where we did have a good experience. There was no one in the drop off office in Colorado springs so we had to go find the inside counter to return the car. PLEASE NOTE THEY INSIST UPON $13.50 PER DAY FOR AN ADDITIONAL DRIVER. ALSO the bill came out different that we expected. So overall I'd stay away from Hertz unless you have to.

10.0 ExcellentJun 8 2021
Pros: Wonderful in every way. Cannot thank your people enough.Cons: A little "cheat sheet" card to be able to figure out the car's features such as mph to kmh, climate controls, more involved aspects of the radio -- without having to dig through the instruction manual.

Pros: Yes he was quite helpful and was able to get me into the perfect full size.Cons: all was fine very nice with great follow through
4.0 OkayApr 24 2021
Cons: I reserved a compact car and was given a 7 seat Voyager van as the only option at the cost in gas milage of probably 10 miles per gallon. With the driving I did, this added significantly to my trip cost. I tried to trade it out in 2 other cities and was told that there were no cars available
2.0 MediocreApr 19 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: Be ready for a wait at the pick-up counter (1-hr) and have to listen to their up-sell 20 times for each person in front of you. Car had a slow tire leak which required filling up every couple days.

10.0 ExcellentMay 31 2021
Pros: New Mexico was short on rental cars during Memorial Day weekend and I was a bit nervous when we had to rent from Budget because their reviews were the lowest. However, this was my best car rental experience by far. The customer service was amazing, the facility is in close proximity to the airport, the return process was a breeze. By far, this was one of my best rental experiences.
4.0 OkayMay 11 2021
Pros: pick up parking not friendly drop off very friendly Agent tried to upgrade us telling us a Toyota would not make it up the mountains. car worked fine. Car was filthy inside and out
10.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful, car was practically brand new and no cigarette smell!Cons: Can’t think of anything.

Cons: Didnt have the car I picked
8.0 ExcellentMay 10 2020
Pros: The whole operation was very understaffed but the people I dealt with, particularly a young man in ABQ, were very helpful and polite. The drop-off was the same, the lot at DEN was closed, which made me nervous about missing my flight. There was no indication anywhere that I was to go to the Avis lot for drop-off. Again, nobody to explain anything but when the woman showed up, she was polite and helpful in a difficult situation for her.
6.8 GoodDec 3 2019
Pros: Friendly counter help. Reliable vehicleCons: I rented an SUV on line. When I got to rental place they had no SUV’s. Was given a minivan instead. Not what I had in mind for a winter weekend in the mountains.
7.6 GoodAug 13 2019
Pros: Friendly staff. Did the best they could.Cons: Did not get car I reserved. Car shortage, had to wait for car to come in. Not a smooth experience.
10.0 ExcellentApr 22 2019
Pros: Friendly and helpful people working the counter. The car was clean and great for our trip.
10.0 ExcellentNov 28 2018
Pros: Easy! We always go with Payless at the ABQ airport. No problems, great deal, and fast service.
7.6 GoodOct 14 2017
Albuquerque RentalPros: Off site transportation was efficient, full size rental rate for Payless was reasonable compared to othersCons: Picked up the car after dark. Car was reasonably clean, but windows were dirty. Hard to see out of front and back, lots of glare, day and night. Mentioned this on my check in on return, and the staff said it is hard to keep windows clean in New Mexico, especially with high temps. Other than that, a good transaction

2.0 MediocreJun 28 2021
Pros: Good staff, at both ends.Cons: Would have been nice to know the car was not being picked up at the airport. We had to Uber to the hotel and they had limited hours. Also I wanted the rental to be a drop off in Dallas. It didn't get done that way.
2.0 MediocreJun 12 2021
Cons: They could have had the car that I reserved. They gave car to someone else and we were stranded.
8.0 ExcellentJun 12 2021
Pros: I ended up liking the pickup truck I was given instead of the sedan I reserved.Cons: The pick up process was tedious, had to wait to get to the (singular) representative. Had to wait (late in the evening) to get rented vehicle!
10.0 ExcellentJun 6 2021
Pros: Staff at pickup and dropoff were courteous and quick - the whole process was simple.Cons: Having a sign in the hotel lobby to point out the counter location, which is down a long, dark hallway.

10.0 ExcellentMay 16 2021
Cons: We reserved the car on one credit card and wanted to pay with another, a concept too difficult for the counter person to understand (on pickup). We got it resolved at drop off. LOVED the car (Ford Mustang convertible).

8.4 ExcellentDec 27 2019
Pros: Staff helpfulCons: Signage at Albuquerque airport and car rental center for EZ car rental was non-existent! They need to make some improvements and not assume that customers know that Advantage and EZ are associated. Also, the wait in line for the one agent was long....
2.0 MediocreNov 13 2019
Pros: Could not pickup car. Had credit card issue which was fixed but policy wouldn’t let them run card 3rd time. Cost me non refundable payment. Not happy at all!Cons: Never use them again. Not helpful. Went to dollar and they took care of me great!
7.6 GoodOct 16 2019
Pros: Staff was great. Quick pick-up and drop-off.Cons: The car was dirty inside and out, especially the windows.
2.0 MediocreSep 17 2019
Cons: My flight was cancelled and I did not make my car reservation within 24 hours so they cancelled reservation even though it was prepaid. Will never go through a third party again.
2.0 MediocreAug 14 2019
Pros: Nothing.Cons: They could be more upfront about their pricing. I recommend going with someone else that allows unlimited mileage included in their pricing. You may pay more upfront but in the long run you will save. Only having 250 miles per day isn’t worth it considering most people will have to drive beyond that
5.2 OkayMar 6 2019
Cons: The vehicle I requested was not available and I had to take an up-charge for a larger vehicle. I was not happy with this, but it was the only option available to me as I was on vacation with 3 other adults depending on me to get them to our destination.
2.0 MediocreDec 23 2018
Cons: The ticket counter was closed once I got there and no provisions were made for a rental. Which left me looking for a vehicle at 12:30 in the morning. Fortunately one of your competitors was open and indicated this happens all of the time and was more than happy to better the price offer and upgrade the vehicle. I don’t think I’ll be using this service again.
4.4 OkaySep 14 2018
No cars upon pickupCons: When I arrived at the car rental location, there were no cars, even though I had a reservation. I had to wait over an hour past my reservation to pick up my car (and the whole time they told me I should expect to wait even longer). The employees were not understanding about the situation, and upon drop off, they told me I was lucky to even get a car at all.
10.0 ExcellentSep 11 2018
Cons: Great. Very helpful.
6.0 GoodAug 1 2018
Cons: Had a slow leak in a tire so had to go back multiple times before getting a different car. Took several hours off my trip.

Never again!Pros: Select vehicle on the lotCons: When you book with kayak, National considers you a second-class citizen. They want you to buy their $28-a-day insurance. (Warning about loss of use fees.) They say the Alliance insurance bought through kayak is insufficient. They charge $15 a day to allow your spouse to drive. They upsell, upsell, upsell: class of car, insurance, etc. etc. I won't rent with them again, either directly or through a third-party website. Use Budget!
