Only one problem with the car rental experience. Budget In Falmouth, Ma is scheduled to open at 8:30 AM, the staff did not show up until 9:15AM. It was pouring rain and a line of about 8 people standing in line outside office in the rain. Calling the location did not help. Mail box was full. Going online with Budget with live chat did not help. Very concerning as many people were headed to airports, a funeral, etc. Car was about 90% full of gas and the car was never gone over or checked by staff. Very poor experience at picking up car. Car itself was nice and clean. Drop off was great!

Pros:

The woman at the Falmouth location was helpful and friendly. The car was quite literally perfect (new).

Cons:

Personally, I think another sign or two marking the location of the office would be good. Also, I'm surprised how much pen and paper is involved. Speaking of pens, if they're going to require you to write mileage/fuel etc. on a piece of paper when you drop off, then there should be a pen in the car or next to the dropbox!

The Avis rental office was unstaffed for 3 hours despite being open according to their hours and Avis customer service. Customer service could not get in touch with anyone who was supposed to be on shift. I was stranded there for 3 hours before having to book a hotel. Their only option for me was to take a 200 dollar Uber to Boston Logan Airport that Avis would not cover

Nothing. Zero. First time user and "never again".

Cons:

Wanted (and booked) a one day rental on Martha's Vineyard, MA. Checked the pick up location; close to the ferry. Excellent. I confirmed. The confirmation now switched to Falmouth, MA, where I live. Was supposed to pick up the car on Gifford St. on the Vineyard. NOT Gifford St. in Falmouth. Can't cancel through Hertz; "gotta go through Kayak". Kayak says "no refunds or cancellations, gotta go through Hertz". Horribly run company. Never again using Kayak.
