To whom it may concern l had to call for my receipt to be emailed to me.Come to find out some way they had the wrong email I dont know how that happened because at sign in I gave the attendant my email an this is not my first time RENTING from Alamo. Thanks.

The car was nice.The car was dirty. The lady at pickup was asleep in the back when I was waiting to get my car. The drop off site didn’t have my information and was unable to locate my rental agreement in their computer. I will take some responsibility for this because I lost my rental agreement.

They ripped me off by Making me pay $65 to refill my gas tank due to saying that there is no gas available in Georgia during the crisis. The very next day every single gas station was open and so that was not true. I only used one quarter of a tank of gas. I am going to never use project again

They said they had a minivan at that location. I even called their service line to make sure. Then the branch opened and they called to say they did not have a minivan and did not provide me with any other option. They just left a message saying, 'sorry, we don't have a minivan at this location.' Another call to the service line was totally pointless. 'well our system says that they have one' 'we can't call the store ourselves, no'

There wasn't anything wrong with the service I got from Thrifty. The poor rating was intended for Kayak. Through this service I was able to reserve a vehicle that wasn't available. I don't know anyone that has nothing better to do than waste precious time online and on the road in an effort to find creative new ways to waste more of their time. Thank you Kayak for making just a tiny part of my life a complete waste. After all, I'm gonna live forever, right...

9.2 ExcellentNov 24 2019
Staff is always friendly and helpfulI dont like how whenever you get a suppliers choice vehicle they give you the smallest vehicle possible. I understand its a gamble but as a renter you want to try out nice cars at a decent price. I feel like this is just a way to cut cost so I won't be using that option anymore. The price was amazing but my husband an I are not twigs and the Ford Fiesta was good on gas but the tank is small and the car barley fit us and our luggage.

1.9 HorribleOct 13 2021
Car was very dirty when we picked it up. I was in Georgia and the rear defrost didn't work. I am from Boston and it was rainy so it made my travels difficult. I called Hertz because I rented the car until 10/12 but on the contract it said 10/11. I was charged a $28 dollar telephone call fee - insane. They wouldn't take it off even thought I was correct. My confirmation was the 12th. It also wasnt clear that I wasn't picking up car at airport - I had to take a taxi to get it. I also wanted to return my car at the airport since my flight was in the evening that night. The price would have gone up from $266 to $390 - to drop off at Hertz at the airport 15 minutes away - 5 hours later. Crazy. I will call and try to get my refund from them for the phone call I had to make because of their error.
1.9 HorribleOct 7 2021
Hertz refused to rent to me after making the reservation nearly 2 months in advance. Hertz said there was an unknown problem with my license and had me call a Hertz telephone number. The number hung up on me twice and the rep said he couldn't rent to me and that number was the only number he had.
1.9 HorribleOct 3 2021
I reserved a car through Kayak and when I went to the Hertz office in Augusta, Georgia to pick it up I was told they had no cars for a one way rental even though I had reserved a car. They said the only thing I could get was a huge Ford Sprinter van, which is basically a work or delivery vehicle. They also told me it would cost me $20.00 more than my confirmed reservation. Even though I protested I was basically told, take it or leave it. I had explained to them that I was in a desperate situation because my car had broken down 5 hours from home and I didn’t have time to waste. They didn’t seem to care and I was forced to take it. The van was a mess. It was dirty and there was damage all over it. The windshield was dirty and the washer reservoir was empty. It was uncomfortable, and noisy. It was badly out of alignment and uncomfortable to drive. It only got around 15 miles to a gallon of gas so my fuel expense was high. In all my life this was the worse car rental experience I’ve ever had and I’m going to also complain to the company office.
3.9 MediocreSep 21 2021
I arrived 90 minutes early for pickup. Clerk said the car wasn't ready and made me wait 60 minutes unnecessarily before giving me the keys. There were more than 30 cars sitting and available in their lot.

We booked a large suv a month ago. We decided to pick up a day early to make sure they had one. So glad we did. There was another couple that reserved and prepaid for a 7 passenger suv and they didn’t have one and said they will refund their money. When arrived they tried to give us a small suv. then after a not so nice discussion, we got the Toyota Highlander it had damage on all four corners, not bad, just some deep scrapes and right front wheel well was not connected to bumper. We got inside and it was filthy, sand and dirt everywhere. Gum in the back seat floor. I took it home and vacuumed the floors and cleaned the dash and seat area. The only positive was the car ran great and was comfortable on the long trip. I would never rent from hertz on Washington rd again. If you do don’t prepay, because they probably won’t have the vehicle.

Provided a vehicle.Reserved a Mazda because we are considering purchasing one. Great opportunity to "test drive" for a couple of days. Staff upgraded us to a larger full sized Ford. Had been helping a relative move to a rural area of South Carolina and was unable to park his truck and trailer at car rental counter. Knew we would have to drop off my spouse to pick up the rental so reserved with her credit card. I waited in cell phone parking area of airport and included my DL and insurance info along with her, but agent would not add me as additional driver. So, less experienced, nervous operator got stuck with all the driving in Charleston for 2 days. She was NOT a happy camper!

NothingYou guys could have a better grasp of inventory. I was sent to 2 different places with reassurance that they cars only to be told they have nothing. I even spoke with customer service line who said the same thing. After giving me the run around, I was told very nonchalantly and rudely ’there is nothing we can do for you. Try again tomorrow. Goodbye.’ Very inconvenient and inconsistent. Very little care about peoples time or plans. Should change a lot of things.
8.4 ExcellentSep 4 2020
Easy pick up and drop off despite the covid19 pandemic.The car wasn't the most comfortable and the visibility out the back window wasn't very good. Also knowing we were traveling through a state with electronic tolls, they could have been more informative about whether there is a service fee or not. I was told there wouldn't be but there was an additional $8 charge!

Drop off super easy and they returned a fairly valuable item I had left in the car via their Lost n Found department. That turned what could have been a sour ending to our trip into a very positive view of Enterprise.The car was not quite a clean as it could have been a pick up. However it may have been one of the busiest weeks of the year for them in Augusta with the Masters just getting over that day.

Your dollar goes a long way!Extremely low rental prices, always have vehicles on hand, clean cars, no wait drop off and friendly customer service.Every time I rent with dollar they try and put you in a truck or or constantly try to get you to upgrade. It comes off pushy sometimes and the truck isn't ideal for a person who tells you the have to travel more than an hour away. Not a real issue but if i had to knit pick to find something negative then that would be it: and

Beautiful truck at great price.Pickup and drop off was extremely slow. Only one person ahead on pick up and their transaction took 15 min. Return had two people there, waited 5 min then dropped key in box. Normally like to wait for reciept. Truck nice but only vehicle available and was really hoping for a fuel zipper, since it was only me and had to drive 5 hrs.

customer serviceThe gentleman at the counter was pleasant when we returned the car. Much better than when we picked up the vehicle.Woman at counter appeared to have something else to do. Was rushing us, even though there wasn't another customer waiting. Offered us option for gas that was different than the price listed on the counter. When I questioned the receipt was charging us more than the price listed on the counter, she appeared perturbed and stated curtly, that I'd be saving a "whole dollar"
7.2 GoodOct 3 2016
I liked that the lot was right outside the door of the airport (no shuttle needed). I liked the actual vehicle (Jeep Renegade).The directions on my Kayak rental print out had a much lower price for the week ($178) and stated that it was off-location and I would need a shuttle. I went up to the Dollar rep and showed her my reservation and she said this was the place and did not know why Kayak had that written on there. The price ended up being $360 something. Very deceiving!

I was unable to rent with a debit card and I had the money for the hold amount. It was very unfortunate I had an emergency my daughter had COVID and I needed to rush her to the hospital from her college and was unable to. Credit is important but we all know credit is sometimes messed up. If I was told to pay $1000 I would have because it was an emergency. The Chinese lady who went before me had no credit and no major credit card but the same association allowed her to rent even after telling her she could not rent because she acted as if she didn’t understand English he pushed it through for her totally wrong. I did not have a good experience. I rent from enterprise all time with a debit card and a hold of $300 the only reason I couldn’t rent that day because no cars were available at any location because of the last minute. This company should look into accommodations like enterprise if they want to continue great success. Or the people that work there should have a credit check and I can guarantee their will be no employees. In the meantime I’m working on my credit. This was the worst experience ever the associate was friendly but unfair how he took care of the last in front of me took him one hour to push her information through and left me hanging.

Paid Extra for a Round Trip ReturnI paid a premium to drop a vehicle off at a different location than I picked it up at ($122 for a one day rental). The vehicle was a crappy Kia Rio that had a super low and uncomfortable passenger seat (my husband is 6'5" and couldn't see over the dash...) Here's the kicker.. I ended up driving the EXACT same car back for the return part of my trip... dropping the car at the original pick up location. So, essentially, I paid a premium to drive a crappy car for Avis back to it's original location. The car also smelled like smoke.

Simple and EasyThe entire process is pretty easy. Just remember that the Avis counter is now with Budget instead of the Avis counter.Be careful about the insurance coverage through Kayak. That's not Avis' coverage but Kayak. If you have any problems, you have to go through Kayak not Avis. Luckily this didn't happen to us but it's good to know before spending the extra money.

The car was clean and ready.At pick up I did ask if we could add one hour to our end time and the agent said it would add another days charge.
