7.9 GoodJul 12 2021
10.0 ExcellentJun 3 2021
Pros: They had the best price compared to other companies for a one-way rental. I was able to choose from 4 different vehicles, and the Nissan Sentra I chose was awesome.Cons: The pickup experience was lacking, as there weren’t enough people working and the employees seemed frustrated.
4.0 OkayMay 17 2021
Cons: They did not have any cars. Was not able to rent anything
8.0 ExcellentApr 26 2021
Cons: Was talked into buying a toll pass for $10.99 a day. Was a rip off.
2.0 MediocreApr 22 2021
Pros: Staff sucks, car sucks, service sucks, if you like being shown one number and then charged double that number after the rental is completed, and then charged randomly for tolls months later rent here.Cons: Basically take the reservation quote that you et and multiply it by 3 because they nickel and dime you
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Cons: I have been over charged
10.0 ExcellentMar 30 2021
Pros: Alamo staffs were very friendly and helpful. My flight arrived a little earlier. Not sure if that's the reason, but their system shows the total price more than doubled comparing to my reservation receipt. The airport Alamo staff were able to get it fixed.Cons: Because of the price difference, it took quite some time for the airport Alamo staff to get it resolved. Wish the system, especially for the reservation through 3rd parties, can be more seamless and fewer issues.
2.0 MediocreMar 13 2021
Pros: I was allowed to pick up my car earlierCons: Price, I agree for one price and you would like to charge me more with reason.
4.0 OkayMar 8 2021
Pros: The lady at drop of made up for it thanks Ashley also Mr Justin Kay did awesome getting me a car at pick upCons: The lady at the front desk was rude and lie on me and about my conduct
2.0 MediocreFeb 11 2021
Pros: Great car, clean but mechanically unsound. Car died after one day.Cons: A car that works, roadside assistance that works as advertised, roadside assistance phone reps that do what they say they will do. Car died and had to rent a car from Hertz as Alamo couldn't figure out how to tow it or replace it. Cost me over $500.

7.9 GoodJul 14 2021
1.9 HorribleJul 13 2021
10.0 ExcellentJun 29 2021
Pros: Pickup and drop-off was very fast with the exact car I had reserved.Cons: Rental car prices can always be lower, right?
4.0 OkayJun 22 2021
Cons: The minivan was not in good shape! There was a problem with the front end which made steering and handling difficult, especially at high speed. The "change oil" light came on halfway through the trip which was disconcerting. When we reported this to the clerk upon returning he seemed unconcerned and said they would check it out but offered no type of compensation. After all of that, we were charged a fuel surcharge because we didn't fill the tank "enough" although it was not full when we picked it up. I thought that to be petty considering the problems we had. In summation, I was not pleased with this particular Enterprise or their customer service.
2.0 MediocreJun 15 2021
Pros: The car was nice aside from scratch marks on the ceiling (I'm serious) and screeching tiresCons: It was an absolutely terrible experience. I arrived on time and as I arrived was getting a phone call from the facility. They informed me when I walked in that they were calling bc they didn't have a car (I've had this reservation for over a week) and that it would be two hours. That is unacceptable. I booked a car and I had somewhere to be. They then said two other people were waiting too but they would put me ahead of two other customers if I agreed to an upcharge for a more expensive car that was being sent there. I said I didn't feel I should be charged for to accommodate their error but they said they were doing me a favor by putting me ahead of the two other people. What a terrible way to run a business. I agreed but after some push back, again I had somewhere to be. It still took 30 minutes for that car to get there. While we waiting the same person and another employee were making fun of customers calling in on the phone because they thought their questions were stupid. There did not seem to be an sense of urgency about being so behind or anything being done to help the customers who are paying them good money. While waiting they provided me my updated quote. It was as I expected and planned for. We went through the ID stuff etc. Finally the car arrives and I go to pay and they let me know it's the amount they said PLUS a security hold of $300. I put money aside specifically for this and no where, including our 30+ waiting time, were we told about a security hold. I didn't have enough money on my card to do this. My partner, who was with me, then had to go in and do the Driver's licence etc all over again so we could finally get going. Honestly I want all of my money back. It was absolutely ridiculous. I am a customer support manager and if an employee or my company dealt this way I would be embarrassed.
2.0 MediocreJun 14 2021
Cons: Charger 40% more on top of quote due to an additional “surcharge/tax” which I wasn’t told about until the very last minute of getting the car. Lame.
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2021
Pros: Drop off was the only positive to this experience. Park the car and go.Cons: Pricing was terrible. The time it took to be able to talk to staff after an 11 hour flight was terrible. Car selection was terrible.
10.0 ExcellentApr 12 2021
Pros: Pick up was easy and the person that helped me was considerate. Drop off was easy and the person who received the drop off was fantastic!
8.0 ExcellentFeb 19 2021
Pros: The guy at midway airport was really nice. They were very quick and efficient too.Cons: I did notice that there was a bunch sticky stuff in the back seat when I got to Kentucky. It didn’t come from me as the only thing I put in the backseat was my suitcase, so I’m a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the vehicle. Also the vehicle itself shakes a lot when you get up to 70mph, and overall I wasn’t impressed with the Ford Ecosport.
10.0 ExcellentJan 9 2021
Pros: good service and new clean roomy car

10.0 ExcellentJul 7 2021
Pros: Convenient pick up and drop offCons: Overall cost could have been lower but vehicle was needed at the last minute and available.
2.0 MediocreJul 2 2021
Pros: The new rental car center is nice.Cons: My options were not explained properly, costing me over $500 extra. The car smelled like smoke. And despite the fact that I topped off the tank less than a mile away, they still charged me for gas. Horrible experience. Won't be using them again.
2.0 MediocreJun 29 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Everything
8.0 ExcellentJun 21 2021
Pros: Staff was accommodating and offered a great upgrade. Drop off is seamless.Cons: Upon arrival, there were only 2 agents available, and dozens of customers. That was frustrating, as weather had delayed us, and we were already running behind. People were steaming. After about 30 minutes, 2 or 3 additional agents came out, and it moved along better after that.
10.0 ExcellentJun 14 2021
Pros: The experience was excellent and I will rent from Budget in the future.Cons: I think that car rental rates are very expensive. It’s industry wide and not limited to Budget Car Rental.
2.0 MediocreJun 14 2021
Cons: No cars available at the reserved time. Unacceptable. They did find us a car at another location, but it cost us extra time, money, and stress. Thanks for nothing, Budget. Oh, also, the agent never explained the EToll device. She said there'd be no tolls on our route.

2.0 MediocreJul 8 2021
Pros: The car was clean.Cons: Everything else. The staff at pickup was excellent but she was overwhelmed and we needed to wait 2 hours just to get to the checkin desk. Every other car rental company had more than one employee working, even the ones with one checkin desk. Dollar and Thrifty had one employee despite having five seperate checkin desks. No employees could be found at drop-off. I finally found some one who said hertz/dollar/thrifty only had one person working (despite lines of cars for returns) and the best thing is to just leave the keys in the car and you will get an email later about checkout. Horrible customer service from a management perspective not an employee level. Staff your locations and service will be better.
2.0 MediocreJun 29 2021
Pros: Staff very friendly, drop-off very easyCons: Waited in line, 3 HOURS to pick up a car. One agent.
10.0 ExcellentJun 28 2021
Pros: The staff was awesome and drop off was very easy.Cons: The car wasn't super clean, but given the circumstance of our flight being cancelled we were just grateful we could get a car. Unfortunately, the price was high, which is typical right now due to the shortage of car rentals. But Dollar was the only company that had cars available thankfully!
2.0 MediocreJun 26 2021
Pros: Pick up took almost 2 hours waiting in the long line! Final bill estimate was about $400; however, final bill was over $600!
10.0 ExcellentJun 24 2021
4.0 OkayJun 18 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy. Pick up at Ohare was a bit nasty most of the time there was only agent to help 40 customers. Waited in line for 1&1/2 hours to pick up my rental.
4.0 OkayJun 16 2021
Cons: They did not have the compact classic car I had requested and charge me for a larger SUV I did not need. This was because I booked through car rental.com and apparently the computer listed me as arriving at 12 noon when in fact I arrived at 10 AM. Looking at the parking area it was clear they did have the smaller car available I consider this a case of bait and switch.
6.0 GoodJun 15 2021
Pros: Easy drop-off.Cons: Like some other rental companies, Dollar is suffering from a car shortage and my car wasn't available when I arrived. To avoid a wait, I took an upgrade. The upgrade price was misquoted and I didn't see the final higher price until I got my receipt. I also declined insurance but was charged for it. Again, being in a hurry I didn't see it until I got my receipt.

6.0 GoodMay 11 2021
Pros: Nice car and very clean. Drop off was easyCons: Price with add ons is ridiculous Pick up was horrible at Midway desk with only two agents working neither of whom was trying very hard to move the line. I was only 4 people back and had to wait 45 minutes to get to the counter.
4.0 OkayFeb 22 2021
Pros: Pickup was confusing as avis had no one at the desks, ghost town. Drop off was simple.Cons: Vehicle had broken glass under the seats and on floor mats at pickup, must've had broken windows previously?? 6 hour drive sounded like driving with the windows open, very loud and interior was not clean even though avis put a sticker on the dash starting vehicle was. Clean/sanitize from top to bottom....
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: No the staff was rude the lady tried to get me to down grade for the same price and when I told her I chose one of the most expensive categories she got upset and said we’ll wait 45 mins till a car is readyCons: They charged hidden fees that weren’t really put out there.

5.2 OkayJul 22 2020
Pros: Desk manager at pickup was good.Cons: Dropoff clerk tried to slide in $15.99 fuel charge when the tank was full.
8.0 ExcellentJul 21 2020
Pros: Car was great, Rental office great.Cons: As I was leaving the check oil and check tire light was on I ask the gentleman as I was leaving about it he said they just probably forgot to reset. It was late so I trusted and left. The next morning heading to my daughters hockey game, the car will not start. Could not detect key. I finally called Uber and continued to try to start actually got started before he got there so we drive to game. I had an hour before it started so I called Avis. The First Lady told me I could either go to wal mart to fix or drive 60 miles both ways to get a new car.... I said not an option. She put me on hold for forever I finally hung up and called back a nicer gentleman found one closer 20 minutes. I drove over they didn’t have cars available. By this time my head is about to spin off. So I drove back to game left my car running watched game and then proceeded to call again which I had to then drove to airport another 20 minutes away and get a new car. They were nice and helped me out so the service is lost somewhere in between. I will never use Avis again.

Pros: Sherry at Ohare facility was most accommodating.
10.0 ExcellentMay 1 2021
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful. Whole process was very easy.Cons: I don’t have any recommendations for improvement.
9.2 ExcellentNov 11 2020
Pros: Almost everything was fantastic. Customer service was timely and pleasant...there were only two of us in line, but there was no effort to put me off. Drop-off was easy and also quick. No receipt provided at drop-off, told I would receive via email. I filled the car with gas before turn-in...haven’t seen the receipt yet, but do hope I wasn’t charged for gas as that appears to be a problem for some.Cons: Getting the email receipt for the car rental facility is far from timely. When traveling for business in particular this receipt is critical for expense reports and a delay in the receipt costs money in disbursement lag, AND is frustrating. For this reason alone, I would generally rate lower, but the rest of the service and the car itself was really very good.
7.2 GoodSep 29 2020
Pros: Swiftly processsCons: The Smoke smell of the car was intense - has no tiene to go back and ask for another vehicle. The price was exorbitant. Two hundred dollar for three days.

3.6 MediocreAug 6 2020

9.6 ExcellentAug 3 2020
Pros: Great price, got a brand new car that was bigger than I reserved, very nice staff.Cons: The wait at the pickup was a bit long and there was only one person at the counter.
6.4 GoodJul 28 2020
Cons: The rep at car return printed out my receipt and I discovered that they were billing me almost $100 more than my original contract. I went to the office and discovered that I was being billed for gas (car gas tank was full & she never got into car to check gas gauge) ,,
2.4 MediocreJul 21 2020
Pros: NothingCons: I ordered my car for the midway airport in Chicago and they booked my car out of the o’hare airport. So I had to take a $60. Uber ride to where I needed to go. This was a bad experience
2.0 MediocreJul 20 2020
Pros: They made me waiting for 2 hours to alot a car I missed my meeting, messed up my scheduled for that moreover faced loss for it.

4.0 OkayJul 6 2021
Pros: The car was in fine working order.Cons: The pick-up process took 2 hours and then didn’t have the car we originally requested.
6.0 GoodJul 5 2021
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful however it took 1.5 hours to get to the counter.Cons: More efficient processing of reservations.
10.0 ExcellentJun 30 2021
Pros: Air traffic is at an all time high and some people don't take into consideration that rental car companies sold off their fleets due to the pandemic. Additionally, when people extend their rentals it affects the next person that had reserved the same size vehicle. Fortunately, even though the wait was a little longer than usual, we had no issues picking up or returning the vehicle at O'Hare.
4.0 OkayJun 16 2021
Pros: Staff tried their best, kept their cool but our car and many others were not there for our 8 am pick up time nor were we given any advance notice that there was going to be a delay. Many disgruntled clientsCons: Have the cars there at the scheduled time or don’t accept reservations. At least give us a head’s up so we could have done something else for 3 hours….
2.0 MediocreJun 9 2021
Pros: NothingCons: We were unable to collect the car because of issues with Thrifty. They were unable to provide us with a car in a reasonable time at the time of our rental. We arrived at the car rental desk and found 100 people queued in line at the counter. In talking with other people, we heard the line was over 1.5 hours long. We waited for 30 minutes and the line did not move. At that point, we were going to miss the appointment that was the reason for our trip, so we left and made other arrangements. (We have small children and waiting for several hours in line was not going to be possible for us.) I attempted to call Thrifty and Rentalcars.com from the line, but was unable to reach an agent. I am happy to provide a photo of the line. Given this experience and Thrifty's inability to provide us a car in a reasonable timeframe at our reservation time, we are requesting a refund for our reservation from rentalcars.com.

Pros: The staff was nice.

Very strange policy in my opinion, and one that was not clear at all upon making the rental reservation.

They always make me feel like I’m bothering them. I’m sorry.

2.0 MediocreJan 5 2021
Cons: National didn't have my SUV available nor would they rent a car to me since I was local and not a distant traveler and booked on the same day. Why did they give the option on the website that a car was available? Wasted my time on Christmas day.
6.0 GoodDec 18 2020
Pros: The staff was happy to see and serve me. Good customer service.Cons: Even though I called ahead, there were no full-sized trucks on the lot when I arrived. They had to get one from some auxiliary lot and drive it in for me. The truck they grabbed had not been properly cleaned - filthy steering wheels and side windows so dirty that I could not see the side mirrors. National made up for this by giving me a free day of rent (refund), and a deep apology from the management. So I will try them again next time.

Cons: I was very pleased
6.8 GoodMay 12 2019
Cons: Way too much confusion trying to locate a car in the class I had reserved (luxury). 5 different people asked if we needed help (we did) but none delivered. After much delay, we got a car that was just cleaned and we’re on our way. Not a very good showing.

1.9 HorribleJul 15 2021
10.0 ExcellentJun 21 2021
Pros: Great staff and drop offCons: The car's gas tank was really weird, the pump kept stopping abruptly as if it were full even though it was at half a tank. i think i managed to fill it up all the way though
10.0 ExcellentJun 21 2021
Pros: The staff was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable.Cons: We did have a bit of a wait before a second staff member came out, but he was apologetic and very professional. He even provided us a free upgrade. The price of the rental was high, but I also booked last minute and it seems that all rental prices are very high right now.
2.0 MediocreJun 10 2021
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: We never actually got our car because we would have had to wait 2 hours for it. They had run out of cars even though we had a reservation.
6.0 GoodJun 4 2021
Pros: The drop off was the best part of the experience. The gentleman who helped us was professional and efficient. The car itself ran just fineCons: When you rent a car and there are visible parts missing-two holes where two what look like lights should have been and there is a long list of "dings"-if is off-putting. And when you have a "this car needs to be serviced" notice every time you start--that is off-putting too. It makes you feel like you are driving a car with problems.
2.0 MediocreJun 3 2021
Cons: I got to the airport around 11:50am while my rental was scheduled to be picked up around noon and was told that they have no cars for me . Rental was paid for in full and yet company didn’t hold the vehicle for me but released it prior to another customer. Customer rep for Sixt then informed me that she will put me on a waiting list with remaining clients and I could try back around 3pm. I am disappointed in both Kayak for partnering with Sixt and them for misleading their clients.
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
Cons: Deceptive - ordered a mid-size SUV but only offered a small SUV until we had to pay up for the vehicle originally booked.
2.0 MediocreMay 6 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly but did not help me when I called in about the car being dirty on the inside.Cons: The car was in disgusting condition and clearly had not been cleaned or sanitized at all. Was not helped when I called into the store to report this. Also, the iPass did not work in the tolls. It was truly an awful experience and I would never recommend this service to someone.
10.0 ExcellentApr 25 2021
Cons: Car had faint smell of cigarette smoke. Other than that we had a great experience and the Volvo SUV was a great drive.
2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
Pros: Staff at pickup were friendly, and the person at their 24/7 help line was empathetic when we had a problemCons: Extra fees & car model restrictions for younger drivers not clear online. No way to see how much insurance would cost before you book. When our car's tire was damaged, we had to stand on the side of the highway for 30 min on hold for roadside assistance, only for them to tell us the best they could do was send a local shop (60 minutes away!) to put on the spare. So the roadside assistance isn't really any help. Because they have so few locations, if you have any car issue outside of Chicago/Indianapolis, you're stuck with taking the time to repair the car, paying for repairs upfront and being charged for any extra time you have to rent the car in order to get those repairs. You can't just exchange the car like you could at a larger chain. Untranslated German on their English website.

8.0 ExcellentMar 14 2020
Pros: The pick up was close by but I didnt realize it would not be at the airport. The sign is super small and if your not looking for it you would miss the pick up spot. Our group waited over 30 minutes before they finally picked us up.
6.8 GoodJan 5 2020
Pros: A good initial price, but was then increased when they forced me to buy insurance before I could get the keys. The vehicle was in excellent shape and clean.Cons: The pickup experience was very frustrating and I will not use this company again.
3.2 MediocreJan 2 2020
Cons: The car’s front end rattled the whole time. Alignment was off pulling to the right. Drivers door made a rattle like a can of beans the whole time we drove over 60mph. The car was dirty when we received it and had over 10 chips in the windshield. Worst rental I’ve ever had.
2.4 MediocreJan 2 2020
Pros: The car was ready when I arrivedCons: I was charged more than what my quoted price was, costing me nearly $100 more than anticipated. Car had a broken rear windshield, no ice scraper, and a slow tire leak in the middle of winter.
3.6 MediocreDec 13 2019
Pros: One lady was super helpful and nice, the rest of the staff I interacted with seemed like they hated everything. The second van I received was in excellent condition on the inside, though dented on the outside.Cons: Ended up being about 25% more than the quoted reservation cost with no explanation given. Inconvenient pickup/drop off location, at least for transit/walking. Took a very long time to pickup and drop off despite being the only customer there. First van they were going to give me was FULL of trash in the back. Second one was fine. Otherwise rude staff. put a huge hold on your card, mileage limit for IL residents - they do tell you this upfront when you’re there but it’s a bit sneaky if you’re reserving through a third party site like this. Some other stuff I can’t even think of right now cuz I’m trying to push the whole ordeal out of my head. It was pretty darn cheap though.
2.0 MediocreDec 5 2019
Cons: We thought we were getting a great deal on a car rental for two weeks. When we arrived at the business to pick up our car, we were charged over $120 more than our initial payment. The reason was (at first) that they had to come and pick us up from the airport. When we pressed into why, the next reason they gave us was because we should have reserved the car through a third party like Expedia. Which we did-through Kayak. The NEXT reason they gave us for charging us so much more was that we came through the airport. Which made zero sense because that's where I filled all the information out at the time of making the reservation. We then asked to see the manager and someone else came out to talk to us. When we asked the woman if she was the manager she said, "well, kind of, but not really, I just help the manager." We then asked again to see the manager. She went back to get him and came back to us and said the manager refused to see us and would not come out front. We then cancelled our reservation. As we were trying to find an Uber to get to another car rental location, another customer was going through the same run around and was being charged over $100 than what all her paperwork said. We call this unethical and bad business and will never recommend this company.
4.4 OkayDec 4 2019
Pros: Cheap priceCons: A clean car with all the body parts. Clearer information regarding closing time up front instead of at counter.
2.0 MediocreOct 28 2019
Cons: I reserved a car to pick up at the O'Hare airport and was told my pick up was for Midway airport so I was left to rent from a different company and paid twice the price.
3.2 MediocreOct 22 2019
Pros: nothing. THis was the worst rental company ever. Do not rent from them ever.Cons: The company charged me more than the rate I booked through Kayak and refused to honor the rate. Also, they said they have a policy that limits people who rent cars from the same state as them to 350 miles per day vs. unlimited, which is what I booked in my contract. The whole "bait and switch" thing was shady and probably illegal. Also, when I got the car home and started loading stuff into it, I realized the car had never been cleaned. There were food crumbs all over the third row, with dirty napkins and drink cups. The irony is that they made me initial something saying that if I smoked or had a pet in the car, I would need to pay $199 for cleaning but they don't even clean out the cars in between customers. I had to vacuum the car myself before going on my trip.
2.0 MediocreOct 14 2019
Cons: This is an unethical company. They did not honor their written rental confirmation and left me stranded without a rental car at Midway Airport, and nearly every other car rental company was without vehicles. They provided no justification for failing to live up to their written commitment. Avoid this company!

2.0 MediocreDec 29 2015
The car that wasn't thereCons: "Reserved" online. It was not made clear that the company was offsite or that a credit card number was necessary to hold the car. Our flight arrived nearly 2 hours late. We took the shuttle to the rental counter only to realize Economy was in a different location. Called both the local number and the toll-free number and got no answer. By the time my phone calls caught up with me it was 12:30 am and the message was that they would hold the car until 10:00. So now we were stuck at Midway. Luckily we were able to rent anothe car but had to cram 6 adults with luggage into 1 car instead of 2 and had to pay a premium price. I would not use Economy again.
5.6 OkayDec 17 2015
Pros: The employees of the company are friendly and helpful. The car was new and comfortable.Cons: The company has a hidden "mandatory" roadside assistance fee of $100. It is NOT printed on any of the paperwork, nor or is there a notification when making the reservation on Kayak. It doubled the price of my rental, but there was 0 communication upfont. I reserve thru Kayak all the time and expect they would be disappointed in the hidden costs as well.
2.0 MediocreNov 28 2015
They didn't have a car for me on Thanksgiving!!Pros: Nothing.Cons: Worst company ever. Told me they gave out all of their cars the night before thanksgiving and they didn't have any car to give me for my reservation. Had to rent from Avis for $260.00 for 1 day when my reservation with Economy was for $70.00
