My car had a very bad odor. Smelled like mildew. Very pronounced. Also I am very short and could not adjust seat forward

They don't make it obvious that there rentals are only allowed in the state you are renting them from and the surrounding states. They will tell you it's in the fine print.

First, their computer didn’t work at check-in. Then, it was a typical “bait and switch”. I reserved a “standard” size vehicle (advertised as a Chevy Malibu or similar) but got a Kia Soul, which I hate.The car wasn’t clean, the gas tank was only half full when got it. Never again with Dollar!

Drop off was not staffed at the early hour of 7:00 pmTaxes and government fees add more than 50% to the cost of the rental car in Omaha. Not Dollar's fault but not a good value.

We had the manager choice deal, and it would seem to me that it would be more cost effective to give us an economy car rather than a minivan. They said they were short on cars, so we were offered the van or the option of upgrading to get a car.

3.2 MediocreNov 3 2019
The car pick up was at the airport and I did not need to use a shuttle, there was not much of a line so it was quickThe guy giving me the keys was rather high pressured with wanting me to take his insurance which I declined because my personal insurance and even my visa covers me, he asked to see my insurance card and quized me on who my insurance was through, which was odd. He also tried to sell the gas return option rather enthusiastically, felt like there was a commission on extras. Car smelled awful, like old cigarettes and body odor. Back seats dirty. It was a very dated SUV that drove rough. Wiper blade on driver side needed replaced badly. And all this for a high price.

Staff was very friendly and the car fit our family great.The interior of the car was filthy. Had to wipe everything down before the start of our trip.
10.0 ExcellentApr 30 2019
Staff was excellent on both ends. Drop off could not have been better.We were upgraded from a mid-size sedan to an SUV with several brands and styles to choose from. Staff could have been a little more helpful by providing the passenger capacity for each instead of just naming them.
9.6 ExcellentMar 4 2019
Drop off was super easy and there were no extra charges like a lot of these places make you pay. I have had bad experiences with Sixt and Budget, but Enterprise were awesome.

Car had a little smoke smell but I know it’s diffic to keep smokers from smoking.

5.6 OkayAug 15 2019
You allowed me to book a pickup/drop off time that was at the end of that location’s normal working hours. They changed my pickup and drop off location. To the airport. The airport location completely changed my reserved vehicle type to something “not similar” and less fuel efficient.Fulfill any one of the promises made in the reservation... changed pickup location, wrong car type, changed drop off location. Clerk was rather rude when I asked why I couldn’t have what I reserved.
4.0 OkayAug 2 2019
The lady at the desk was nice but I was very unhappyThis is the second time that Budget has not had the car I requested. I was going to see my 95 yr old dad. I ordered a family type car. The did not have one. I was offered a Jeep Cheroke or a Pickup truck. I told them my dad could not get in or out. So I ended up with a Dodge Charger. Not what I want
9.2 ExcellentJul 16 2019
Desk staff at initial pickup unprofessional and immature, seemed somewhat poorly trained. Maybe they were training a new team member?

Appreciated small SUV style Ford EcoSport for travelling, had just enough space for all our luggage. Didn't have great gas mileage but very good otherwise (comfort, driveability, storage space, flexibility of putting back seats down for luggage, etc.)

Staff was extremely helpful. No frowns. No hassles. Just customer-service oriented.We arrrived at the Avis/Payless counter at 6 pm. Only ONE rep for both companies. When we checked our car for scratches, there were several, so we had to flag a Payless rep. She was excellent - immediately went to get another car and made sure we were satisfied. HOWEVER, the car obviously hadn't been washed. We didn't mind, but. . .

The vehicle was awesomeI was late, called 7 times to the local branch, but it kept going to the call center. The call center didn't have the answer and ended up costing me double because nobody could answer a phone call. Did talk to a manager that told me they were closed and have it returned by opening og the next day, that was a lie so now I will be filing complaints with every office i can, starting with bbb and file a claim with to get a refund.

Counter Staff was amazing. Very customer oriented at the time of rental.Car smelled of marijuana once it sat out in the sun. I called this in Day 1 after the car was sitting in the sun and the smell was overwhelming. As soon as I got through being on hold the representative told me they noted the smell to my account and then they hung up. I wanted to swap cars, but I did not have time to call back as I was travelling on business. Then when I returned the car they emailed me my receipt. Upon review of the receipt I was charged for a tank of gas when I had turned the car in with a full tank. Called the local number on my receipt ... Put on hold..... Then hold again for them to verify .... "They made a note and corporate would email me in 3 to 5 days, the charges are already in." So in a nutshell dirty car and overcharged.

The new Nissan Pathfinder was the best rental car I've driven, great choice! I needed something bigger than a mid-size SUV, but I didn't want a big Tahoe or Suburban, so the Pathfinder was the perfect size and a wonderful leather interior. I'll be back hoping to get the same in the future!Nothing!
9.2 ExcellentJul 20 2019
Desk agent was knowledgeable, professional, and couteous with no pressure or upselling. Return check-in very quick and Return agent pointed out that since I filled up the tank which was higher that when I picked up the vehicle i would receive an adjustment at the "counter" so I was not over chargedPrice seemed unusually high @$89/day

Everything was quick and easy. I got a car upgrade b/c they were out of economy size, so I was very pleased.

Lost a future customer over $5I picked Payless because they said they were based at the terminal (Omaha) and the others mentioned a shuttle. Payless had a desk at the terminal but it was not staffed and instead had directions to the same shuttle as all of the others. Plus it is a bit of a pet peeve when customer service agents finish their conversation with each other before attending to the needs of the customer. Also I had asked for an extra hour on the rental to finish up my conference for which I was willing to pay the hourly rate of $5. They said if I was 1 minute over I would have to pay for an extra day. I left my conference early to get it there on time (3 minutes early). Instead of them getting a little extra for the hour, they got no extra, and they got one less customer for life over $5.

The gentleman who handled the front end was superb, very friendly and helpful. The price was vey cheap in today's market. The only glitch was thatthe return area was very busy and jammed up when we arrived to return th e car. This is very minor in the context of the rental.

After long walk to the counter, the sign directed me to go directly to the garage where I waited with my family, sweating in the humidity, for 30 minutes while they sorted out their janky computer system. I ultimately got a mini-van despite reserving an Full size SUV, along with a whopping dose of apathy from the staff.Give me what I reserved, and don’t make me stand 30 mins in my own sweat to do it

Hidden extrasEverything was standard so nothing was done more than anyone else. They did their job.Telling me that I had to pay a $200 deposit when picking up the vehicle. It would be nice to know this in advance.
