Brandon at this location was 100% committed in making customers like myself happy. I had a small issue with the windshield wiper blade and fluid and he went above and beyond to correct this issue. People like Brandon should be recognized for their efforts.

Cons:

When I booked I put in arrival at San Diego airport and you booked me out of Carlsbad which is an hour away from the airport! Avis was good enough to find a car for me but it was over $100 more than my booking price!!! That is why I booked online and ahead of time to get a decent rate.

4,8 Okay

Jun 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Main issue was that the price rose 200% when I went to pick up the car. Instead of about $250 the rental cost closer to $500. Very disappointed with the outrageous charges for changing pick up location. I expected a small variation but the resulting fees were astronomical.

6,4 Good

Jan 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Hybrid comfy car. Clean on the inside. Accurate pricing upon drop off. Easy drop off and courteous

Cons:

It may be Kayak but they were closing at my reservation time so I had to rush, not did they want to give me the time of Day about upgrading or explaining where to get my car. It was obvious that they wanted to leave (it was Christmas Eve, but I was not told their closing time). They said I could upgrade at any location, which wasn’t true. No one would without charging me $1k+ on my total rental and restarting a new contract. The rental car also had writing in the window like it was just picked up from being impounded. That was kinda janky

KAYAK

Pros:

After trying several rental car companies directly without success, Kayak was able to get me several options for my trip. It seems that rental car companies are not overly excited to rent cars for one way, day trips. I needed to travel 200 miles, one way, to pick up my new car. Kayak was able to find cheap rentals with major companies that I just couldn't get directly. Thanks Kayak!

Cons:

You should have been there earlier! Oh, wait, no that was my fault. Next time I know where I will check first.

Pros:

They did listen.

Cons:

You would think that after all the hassle, I asked for a discount or to please find us something and honor the price I agreed to pay - no discount on the current issue, no discount on a future rental, etc., etc. They obviously don't need or want our business.
