10.0 ExcellentMar 25 2021
Pros: Everything was very smooth. No attempts to upsell. Got me on my way quickly and pleasantly.Cons: I don't have much to say. Everything went as I expected.
10.0 ExcellentMar 22 2021
Pros: Pick up was fast and easy and only took a few minutes. The return was even faster. I just pulled up and someone was there to take the key and I left.Cons: Honestly , nothing on this rental.
10.0 ExcellentMar 15 2021
Pros: The staff in the parking garage was especially helpful and friendly for pick-up and drop-off. They couldn't have been better and were always available to gladly help.Cons: The inside-office/front desk person wasn't quite as friendly as the very helpful outside people.
10.0 ExcellentMar 12 2021
Pros: Pam was super helpful!Cons: Notification before reservation (was wrong time) cancelled to confirm.
6.0 GoodMar 10 2021
Cons: When I arrived I was told there was a 25 minute wait for a vehicle. I was informed I’d receive a phone calls when the car was ready. I waited for about 45 minutes and didn’t hear anything. So, I decided to go back inside to check. There was a shift change, and when the new attendant heard my complaint she immediately began processing my reservation and said “I don’t know why he didn’t call you.” An apology would have been a better response. An offer to discount or add a perk to my reservation would have been a stellar response. Once I left the desk and met with the second attendant in the parking garage, I was informed there there was some mixup and tha the car I was assigned “doesn’t work.” I had to wait another 15 mins alongside another customer for a new car and keys to be issued. What should have been a 30-minute to one hour process, was a process that took about two and a half hours of my evening away from my family. Once I received the car, all was well. The car return was also a relatively smooth process. However, the long wait time at pickup, miscommunication, and poor customer service will definitely make me hesitate to recommend or use NextCar ever again.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 10 2021
Pros: Drop off was greatCons: Pick up was very slow. Nobody at the rental counter when I arrived and it took multiple attempts to get the computer to work

8.0 ExcellentApr 11 2021
Cons: The pick up process was stressful
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Pros: Not much.Cons: The location was incredibly understaffed. I waited over an hour to get my car because they only had one person working for multiple rental agencies. When I got the car, it had a large gash in the front tire and had to be replaced. All told, it took 2 hours to get the car. Hertz needs to staff their locations with an appropriate amount of people to service the number of customers they get.
2.0 MediocreJan 8 2021
Pros: Convenient shuttle, but that is about it.Cons: Car was not available. 4.5 hour wait at 1am in the morning with a family waiting
6.0 GoodJan 4 2021
Pros: I liked the attendant, Natlin.Cons: Everything else was awful! The rental was extremely dirty and due to the lack of cleanliness I stuck my finger in someone’s leftover food during a pandemic.

Pros: Great rental.Cons: Nothing. Everything was fine
3.6 MediocreAug 23 2020
Pros: The other rental company that helped us
2.0 MediocreJul 30 2020
Cons: Payless in BWI is closed and has no cars available for the last few months. However, they are still accepting reservation! Don't be fooled
2.0 MediocreJul 27 2020
Cons: We showed up for our reservation only to be greeted by a sign at the counter saying “ no cars available “. We had to scramble and rent from another company at twice the price. There was no one at the counter. Why is kayak booking reservations for Payless at BWI if they clearly aren’t running?
2.0 MediocreJul 26 2020
Cons: Booked a rental and showed up to pick up the car and there was no one at the counter. There was only a sign saying No cars available. Very unprofessional and caused unnecessary stress at the start of a trip.
2.0 MediocreJul 22 2020
Pros: Nothing. No one was there and I was unable to rent the car.Cons: Someone could have been there and they could have had a car there since I booked it a week earlier.
2.8 MediocreJul 20 2020
Pros: Nothing. They were not present - only a sign saying they were out of cars.Cons: No one was present even though we had a car reserved. There was only a hand-written sign saying they were out of cars. We were stuck without a car and no transportation. It was a nightmare. We could not get in touch with Payless by phone and we were put on a callback list with Kayak because their hold times were over an hour. We were totally stuck with no recourse.
2.0 MediocreJul 20 2020
Cons: The Payless car rental has closed at BWI. I received a confirmation email from kayak just a few hours before I arrived at BWI to find it closed. Then when I called Kayak customer service I couldn’t get through. They finally called me back after I’d spent twice as much at another rental car agency snd they said there was nothing kayak could do. I won’t use kayak again. Unreliable.
2.0 MediocreJul 14 2020
Cons: We got to site to pick up our car and there was a sign that said “sorry no cars” and there was no one at the desk to even ask a question to.
2.0 MediocreJul 7 2020
Pros: Nothing, reserved car week earlier, got to the rental location and it was CLOSED! Sign read " No cars available"!!! WTF????? I will NEVER rent a car from them or their sister company Avis again. NEVER. I ended up paying another $120 for a competitor's car. I am suing.Cons: Everything, read above. Give me my $120!!!!

8.0 ExcellentApr 4 2021
Pros: "Fast Break" dropoff at EWR was very convenient.Cons: It was hard to find the return lot at EWR. The signage was misleading and Waze did not know how to route me there. I would have liked to use the automatic toll device, but 17.99/day was not worth it, since I was only driving on toll roads two days out of the five,
6.0 GoodMar 16 2021
Cons: The car smelled cigarettes. Car felt old and kind of powerless uphills.
2.0 MediocreMar 16 2021
Pros: NothingCons: More cars options
4.0 OkayMar 8 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly at pick up and drop off.Cons: I was unaware of a $30 per day service fee. I have rented in the past and never paid an additional fee other than a prepaid fuel charge. The car seemed really loose in the operability. I would rent from Budget again only because of my history renting from them but I would choose a different car for sure.
2.0 MediocreJan 25 2021
Pros: The people on Sligo Ave in Silver Springs MD were helpful. Budget corporate, DC and BWI not.Cons: Not a broken car. Terrible customers service. Wasted half a day for me. Simple solution would have been possible, but no one was willing to help. Will not get budget again.
2.0 MediocreJan 9 2021
Cons: The check out process for each individual too far too long. I have purchased cars in less time. I was also charged for fuel even though I topped the car off prior to returning it.
10.0 ExcellentNov 17 2020
Pros: - drop off and pick up was very simple and not too many unwanted surprises - Avis/Budget staff was kind - car return instructions were succinctCons: clarification about which company is handling insurance. I paid for insurance twice. Once through Allianz and then again through another source that Budget uses. the insurance rental policy with Allianz was not in Budgets records of my rental. (I booked with Budget through "KAYAK"). Thanks.
2.0 MediocreOct 13 2020
Pros: Nothing. They were liars. The whole process is deceptive.Cons: Everything
5.6 OkayAug 20 2020

2.0 MediocreAug 24 2020
Pros: Car was as expected and reasonably clean.Cons: Pick up took over 1 hour. Not enough staff. No hand sanitizer in line. No hand sanitizer available in car. No food or drink available at rental car lobby. Cost was much higher than promised.
6.0 GoodJul 30 2020
Pros: Pick up - agent was nice but totally misrepresented the charges. No-one was at the drop off, so cannot say anything about that. I appreciate that everyone wore masks and it was quite clean.Cons: Phone number does NOT ring to the pickup location. No-one was at the drop off, so cannot say anything about that. However, the intake numbers seems to think we drove 1070 miles in 4.5 hours. (we did not average 237 mph). Avis added $20.81 in mystery taxable fees. Charged me for roadside assistance ($7.99 not requested) Charged me for a full tank of gas (option was taken for $41 - but we were told we only paid for what we used, which was 5/8 of tank or 10.3 gallons = $25.61)
6.4 GoodSep 18 2019
Cons: At pick-up the rep wasn’t sure of what car was available. She left multi times to determine that. Finally she did; it was still the wrong car. She proceeded to write the updated info (mileage, color and another #) on the receipt instead of printing out a new one. That caused a hold up at the gate.
10.0 ExcellentJul 31 2019
Pros: Had a choice of several cars, and took the advice of the woman at check-in as to which was better. Was a good choice.Cons: Can't think of anything to be improved on.
