Pros:

Staff was relatively friendly and helpful, vehicle was excellent.

Cons:

The vehicle was not waiting for us when we arrived. We had to wait over 30 minutes for a vehicle to arrive at the facility. Communication of this was poor as we were told the wait would be only 10 minutes and I believe we were not immediately notified when our vehicle was ready.

Cons:

When we picked up the vehicle it only had 1/4 of a tank of gas so we had to wait 20 minutes for them to go put gas in it. When we returned the vehicle we stopped about 20 minutes from the city to fill it up and we were still charged for 3 gallons of gas at 10.00 a gallon, which is absolutely ridiculous.

Pros:

Drop off was super easy and the van was perfect for our needs

Cons:

My flight was delayed by 3 hours, so instead of getting in at 9:00 pm it was midnight. When I got to the Alamo rental in the airport the entire garage was empty of cars. There were about 8 of us in line with nothing that we could do but wait to see if more cars were brought over, the employee said that they had overbooked and were waiting for more cars to be turned in and cleaned up. It was after 2:00 am when I got my car, thank goodness I kept my email confirmation because they wanted to charge me an extra $125 even though I picked up the car 5 hours later than I originally scheduled it for. I guess car rental companies are like airlines, they overbook "hoping" people don't show up but when everyone does the customers just get mad and end up having a poor experience.

Staff was great - efficient and helpful. Everything was on time and easy!! Thank you!! 😊

Cons:

Car was not what we ordered - the minivan we paid for was damaged so you exchanged it w a Nissan Pathfinder. This car was clean and perfect in every way - except it did not have quite enough room - which is why the minivan was ordered. I understand things happen -and I really appreciated you having a substitute car ready for us when we arrived! Unfortunately my boss who booked the rental said he paid extra for a minivan, and total invoice seemed even higher than he expected. He was not happy we paid too much for a substitute, especially as we later had to finagle people and luggage around.

Cons:

I ordered a Tahoe or similar and they didn’t have anything but a van. Had to come back to get the van and then waited 30 minutes the second time I came back for it. When I drove off the tank wasn’t even full. It was only at 1/4 tank. When I went to drop off the vehicle a few hours early at 7:50 am the manager told me they don’t open for 10 minutes. From beginning to end was a terrible experience. Left the keys in a drop box and left.

Pros:

The car (Pacifica minivan) really worked well for our needs as far as size and comfort and got decent mileage. Dropoff was very easy.

Cons:

The pick up was awful. After a very tiring flight, a packed airport, waiting in line, and trying to breathe in an N95 mask, the agent (who was not wearing her mask properly), kept trying to "upsell" us on a different vehicle. I appreciate the offer to get something larger, and we did. But partly I just agreed to get it so we could all just get out of there. Unrelated, some features to the Pacific like the auto stop/start are just plain dumb and make it hard to use.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing. This was the worst car rental experience I have ever had. I booked the car 6 weeks in advance. When we arrived in Charlotte, we found relatively a long line and no cars awaiting anyone. First, booking through Priceline was deceptive because it dod not include any of the additional taxes, which ended up adding almost $100 to the fee. Then the woman at the counter was deceptive in how she asked about insurance, which added another $100. The additional cost were not explained at all. I only noticed them just before signing the rental agreement, so then entire process had to be redone to eliminate the insurance, but the taxes obviously remained. I had ordered a full size SUV, but after watching one car show up every 10-15 minutes, everyone was just taking whatever showed up, so we ended up with a smaller class car. At that point it was well past midnight and had been there two hours. Our hosts were home waiting for our arrival, so we left and called Dollar the next morning to see if we could get the class of car we ordered. The representative sent me to a Hertz location 30 minutes from where we were staying and assured me there would be an SUV waiting for me. When I arrived, no car was waiting and they weren't sure they had one. They finally "found" a smaller SUV and we took it. We had an appointment in the area which was our reason for traveling to Charlotte and were running short on time, so we didn't have them "freshen it up". The car seemed fine when we got it, but a few minutes after driving a way, we discovered the vehicle smelled like urine. We did not have time to turn around and by the time we arrived back in Charlotte that evening, it was too late and we were too tired to deal with trying to return yet another car, so we drove around the rest of the weekend with the windows open and our face masks on. We will NEVER rent from Dollar or Hertz or through an online service like this again.

Cons:

We could have been made aware of all additional costs. We should have gotten the car in far less time. We could have gotten the car class we ordered. And when we exchanged the car, availability should have been confirmed with the location, we should have gotten the car class we ordered and we should have received one that did not smell like urine.

The car I rented was filthy inside and also the last person was smoking marijuana and cigarettes in the car. It was overwhelming. It wasn't until I got to my final destination I realized why I had such a bad headache. I would like the manager to call me and credit some of the rental. For someone who is a non-smoker and very sensitive to smoke it was 10 hours in a car that stunk so bad inside. Both the woman who checked the car out to me and the man who checked in the car were super friendly and kind.

At check in, the agent told me that I needed to select at least the base level of their protection products (a loss & damage waiver) because my auto insurance would not cover me. That didn't sound right, and I tried to decline, but I was told that I needed to select one. I eventually did after much back & forth. After doing research, I learned that my auto insurance did indeed cover me and I could indeed decline the product, but when I called Hertz to try to get the coverage removed they would not help me. I talked to at least 2 agents and 2 supervisors and waited on hold for hours. I was told the only way to get it taken off was to drive back to the rental location 2 hours from where I was staying. Both the deception at the counter and the terrible customer service was a major disappointment and but a damper on my trip. I will never use Hertz again.

I went on My Kayak app to rent a car. Made a reservation - received confirmation from Priceline (?). Hertz car rental was the rental agent. Trip had to be altered due to meeting cancelation and it took 90 minutes to get the reservation changed. I don’t appreciate the bait and switch. Will go direct to car rental agency in the future.

KAYAK

Pros:

The only reason I booked with them was because of their price.

Cons:

But I guess you get what you pay for. When I first booked the car online nowhere did it say of you are in-state you have to have a credit card or that you have limited mileage. How is this fair when if I was from out of town I got unlimited miles and could use a debit card for the 200 deposit??? Getting to the place is where they tell you all of that. Since I dont have a credit card I waisted money on a reservation with them. They wouldn't let me add another driver to the policy since the reservation was done online (yet online...it's not an option to add another driver). I couldn't use someone's else's credit card with the same last name as me (and who was right there with me to give consent for the use of their card) yet at other car rental companies I have done that before in the past. I needed a car and theirs was cheaper so I ended up getting another reservation with them in someone else's name. With this reservation (although it was also done online) I could now all of a sudden and an additional driver to it. They said when we turn the car back in, any occurred charges could be paid for with another card. When we brought the car back, they lied and said they wouldn't charge us for an additional driver however, they did anyways placing that charge on a credit card that no charge should have been made to. I had absolutely no problem paying for the additional driver, however it would have been done with a debit card so don't lie to me about where it's getting charged to not mess up people's credit status.

Pros:

Professional, friendly reps.

Cons:

The representative said his only vehicle available was delivered from the airport location and the car had a heavy smoke smell. He said I could take it to the airport location to swap for another car. I appreciate it made the offer but don’t understand why the airport location provided the car to the other location knowing of the smoke problem. I did drive the 6 miles to the airport to make the swap. Personnel at both locations were friendly and professional.

Your system (kayak) let me book a rental at an Avis location that wasn’t open on the day that I needed to pick it up. I didn’t find out about this until a few days before the rental when Avis called me. I had to find a new rental and process has gone up significantly. I used Priceline this time.

I had to take my car back to the rental car place and get a replacement. The car's seat were filthy with burns in them. The car also had a sputter that made it seem as if it was going to cut off. It was replaced with a better care, but still there were scratches and dings on it as well. I would not recommend or use Ace rental car again.

Cons:

I made two Thrifty Car reservations using Kayak. When I tried to pick up the first car Thrifty said the reservation was cancelled. Sure enough, I checked the Kayak paperwork and the reservation cancelled automatically two hours before the scheduled pick up time. I checked the next reservation 3 days in the future and found that it too automatically cancelled 2 hours before the scheduled pick up. I called both Kayak and Thrifty and neither could change it. Absolutely useless.

Pros:

It was exhilarating being reprimanded by the check in desk for declining their own insurance, even though I had already purchased insurance via Kayak.

Cons:

The rented Ford Fiesta may have once been a viable vehicle, but the transmission barely cycled--leaving me stranded more than once in the middle of intersections. What a piece of junk.

Cons:

A single person running the counter when checking in. Zero ability to answer questions. The car treated me like a teenager with having speed limited to 80, volume limited to 9, seat belts that would shut off the radio if they weren't plugged in. There wasn't a drive to pick us up from the location to go back to the airport. Overall, the situation was a disaster.

Cons:

The handling of the car that I was given was terrible. It was very sensitive, which made it tough to drive especially when on the highway. In addition, the lady at the counter said the upgrade was $12 and when I got the receipt, it as $20.

Top tips for hiring a car in Charlotte

  • Driving in Charlotte is the most convenient and effective way of getting to know the city, as all the major interest points are pretty scattered across a 15-mile range. Downtown Charlotte, which is known as Uptown, gets quite busy, but just a short ride away you'll find the cool North Davidson St. and Plaza Midwood neighborhoods. A car is the perfect option for those looking to explore other destinations outside the city — including the US National Whitewater Center, an outdoor recreation facility that sits 15 miles west of Uptown and offers several outdoor activities. Another popular destination is Lake Norman, which is only 30 minutes outside of Charlotte.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)'s Consolidated hire Car Facility, which is in the Level 2 lobby next to the Hourly Parking Deck, right in front of the Arrivals terminal.
  • Uptown is one of the most crowded areas in the city, particularly when there are big events going on, such as a Carolina Panthers game, so beware of pedestrians if you're driving there. The whole of Charlotte gets pretty packed during NASCAR season, so you may want to avoid going to shopping malls in the city center. The Interstate 485 (I-485) is a highway loop that encircles the city, and, while it may be a little difficult to navigate, it is usually less congested than the Interstate 77, which flows north-south on the western side of Charlotte.
  • Although traffic is manageable, roads are usually fairly busy throughout Charlotte during peak hours, so avoid rush hour traffic both in the morning (between 7:30 and 10 a.m.) and afternoon (between 4 and 7 p.m.) if you don't want to be stuck driving for longer than needed. The I-77 in particular tends to get packed during rush hour, in which case it's best to take the 385 loop around the city. When there's a major sporting event taking place, it is recommended that you refrain from driving in the Uptown area.
