The car was not available at the pickup time. I spent the money in the Uber in vain and even the rest of the day no rental car to pick up was guaranteed. And that after having gotten a confirmation and emails from you. What an unreliable service !!! I will not book cars via you and priceline anymore. At least the guy in the rental car office was honest, but that didn't give me my agreed to car. Highly disappointing!

The Enterprise did not have any vehicles available and did not honor the reservation.An integrated system so you can not make a reservation if there are no vehicles available. An integrated system where other party will have my informations that Kayak already have (email and phone number) so they can call me and let me know that they do not have vehicles available.

Please note there are two Hertz locations - one at the airport and one down the road. There was a lack of communication between them both and they each seem to be staffed by just one person.

Upon the recommendation of my significant other, we called Hertz to verify our reservation for a car with pickup set for July 9, the original reservation was made in January 2021. We called the Hertz location we were picking up from directly. The representative we spoke with told us someone had called and cancelled the reservation on July 5. When we questioned the person who had cancelled the car as neither of us had called Hertz to cancel she responded "the cancellation came from central reservation." She then told us they did not have the car we reserved and would not provide any alternatives other than giving us the number for Avis. I continued to ask who cancelled the reservation and she kept attempting to gaslight us and explain to us how we had cancelled the reservation. Rather than find a solution she then hung up on us. The fact we reserved the convertible for an affordable price months in advance, coupled with the fact Hertz had no convertible leads me to believe Hertz merely cancelled our reservation without any notice and rented the convertible for a higher price. This caused us to rent the car for a higher price since it was last notice. I will never rent from Hertz again.

I liked all of our encounters with the service staff from the folks working behind the counter to the complementary ride from the airport to the train station. Excellent service.The car I rented needed some attention, for example the alignment was off.

Budget took a really long time to get our check in process. Also it was super unclear where the car was parked so we walked a long ways only to turn around and walk back and the San Luis Airport

When we dropped off the car, the place was closed. No after hours key drop off either. Even thought I selected 4:00 drop off and paid for that, the place closed at 2

The price was about the only thing I likedThe pick up was a nightmare. I had to cross the highway with a suitcase and no sidewalks. The directions to the pick up weren't clear at all. I walked around forever before I actually found the right building. Then my car wasn't ready. The whole process took an hour and a half.

I extended my reservation one more day as I was unsure I could make it back on the original date. I ended up getting back earlier. Original drop off was 12 noon. I arrived a day earlier at 4 pm, 20 hrs before the due date. I asked if I could have a cost adjustment but was told that I could not. I have had this courtesy at other car rentals so I was very disappointed. The staff was very nice & I realize she was just doing company policy but I feel that 20 hrs. earlier than scheduled drop off was certainly worth giving some amt. of cost adjustment. I will most likely not use Avis the next time I rent a car.

I had a reservation at Avis - 333 Madonna Rd. In San Luis Obispo 9/15/21. The place closes at 5:00pm. I showed up at 4:30 to pick up my car and no one was there?!! The door was locked and the woman working that day simply left early and closed up shop! I called the 800 number she posted on the front door only to be told that there was nothing they could do to help. This is so inacceptable! That woman should be fired for doing this to me… I had a reservation and she left work early completely screwing me over! I went to 2 other rental places before finally finding a car. I will not ever do business with this place again because of this woman.

Everything was good except when I picked up the car it was not especially clean. The passenger seat had crumbs of something on it, and there were drip marks on the headrest and seat, and also in the back seat, where I believe they sprayed cleaner or air freshener but never wiped it down. The lady at the pick-up agency immediately apologized and came out and wiped it down quickly. She was wonderful, and the problem was quickly resolved.

Car reeked of cannabis. Drop off in downtown San Diego was terrible. No staff, no drop off instructions, no one answered the phone. Lost an hour. Ended up returning it back to the airport and they charged me 75 dollars for not returning it to the right location. Total mess.Pretty much everything. Not using Avis again.

They cancelled my reservation one hour before pick upWhen I finally did get a car, it was clean and service at the new location I had to go to was efficient and friendly.I was called one hour before my scheduled pick up time (12pm) and was left a voicemail simply confirming my pick up time at 12pm. I happened to call back just to be courteous, and luckily I did because I was then told they did not have a car for me, but they *might* have one at 5pm. They said this as if it were no big deal at all. When I said that was not going to work for me, and requested that they find me a car in the area at a different location, I was told I would receive a call back in 5 minutes. The woman on the phone was extremely rude, unapologetic, and interrupted me repeatedly. A half hour later I had not received a call, so I called to follow up and was informed they had found a car for me, but apparently they had forgotten to call me back to tell me. I was told at this time that my car would be a minivan and not an economy car as I had requested. After arriving at the new location, I asked if they by any chance had an economy car, and was told oh yes no problem of course we do. I'm very confused about why this happened. I was offered no explanation, and was ignored when I asked for one. I was never apologized to and was treated as if this is a regular occurrence. I had scheduled my pick up a week in advance, and had several people depending on my being able to pick up the car at 12pm. This whole experience left me speechless. I have never experienced such poor customer service, and don't feel that I brought this on as I was extremely polite and respectful through my entire interaction with all Avis staff I encountered. I was offered no compensation for the stress and inconvenience of this ordeal and would like a response from your customer service department. Thank you.

Great car, but trouble with price being changedThe car was a Prius, very clean, new and quiet. It got great mileage.We were scheduled to pick up the car at 5pm. We get a call at 4:45 pm saying they close at 5 pm, so they wanted to make sure we would be there. We would have preferred to know this ahead of time, and we would nave scheduled an earlier time. Then, when we were dropping off the car, the amount charged was $55 dollars more than originally quoted. Luckily we caught it and questioned them about the discrepancy. They then apologized and said "the computer" had automatically charged the default price. They fixed it. Just be careful that you are being charged the correct amount!

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Atascadero car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Atascadero.
