Chalmette car rentals allow you to visit hidden trails and remote places that are impossible to get to by train or bus.

Pros:

The fact that the supervisor at the new Orleans east location was able to accommodate us for our reservations with the chalmette location.

Cons:

The fact that we called to get directions to the store and was told they had no vehicle for us to pick up for our time set 3 weeks prior. They called the day before to verify our reservations and still didn't have the common courtesy to pick up from the other location for us to have a vehicle. To me that is poor management and laziness.

I wanted to pickup and return my car rental at the airport (MSY), but the rental location Kayak gave me was 30 mins away and required the additional rental of an uber or lift ride. I should have been warned my rental location was not compatible with my airport.

They didn’t have our car on time, meaning that we had to take a temporary one and come back again later that day. When we got the type we’d reserved it was making a noise in the rear breaks.

I booked a reservation for a car with them and when I got there they said they had no cars available. The same situation happened to at least 5 other people while i was there.

Pros:

Literally nothing.

Cons:

Everything. The guy was an hour and a half late then just said, “Oh well you shouldn’t have been able to book it earlier.” No apology, no discount... It ruined our whole day because we were two hours late after he had to drive us to another location because the one I reserved the car at apparently only had a 12-passenger van he kept trying to get us to take. There were three of us! We didn’t want the damn van.

The Budget online system directed us to a location that had zero cars. We had to go with all of our luggage to second location. Our order confirmed by credit card was for a convertible Mustang or similar. The second location doesn't have any convertible cars at all. Because of Budget we wasted 3 hours. They offered us only one uncomfortable car, which was not even washed. I expect a refund. I paid for something completely different, plus Budget caused a long delay in my journey, which impacted the day.

Pros:

Houston staff was helpful and understanding.

Cons:

Pickup in New Orleans could have been better: the representative did not give us a chance to inspect the car nor did he notate the amount of gas in the tank. Luckily we took a photo showing the tank was not full when we received the car, because in Houston at drop off they were expecting the car to be full until we explained and had the picture as proof. We also discovered while driving that one of the headlights was out, which the New Orleans representative did not inform us/note down, but the Houston representative noticed immediately before we even told him.

Pros:

Thought it was a little expensive but in hindsight I think it was the fact that Louisiana state tax is 25% so that amped up the price. Good car overall. It may need an oil change and the transmission feels weird in lower RPMs

Pros:

Nothing. I booked a car and when we got there we were told there were no cars for us. Nothing was offered to make the experience right besides "you could wait about 5 hours."

Cons:

Having a car available! Or, not letting me book a car online when none were available.
