Super convenient pickup at Savannah airport right from the terminal. Dropoff was confusing as one ramp sign said 'rental dropoff' and another showed some (but not all) rental logos so we exited and circled around twice to find 'Budget.' I don't remember ever having to pay much to add a second driver but we paid almost $200 more to add my wife as a driver and that was a significant expense we had not been expecting.

The line was super long. Waited for half hour and the line barely moved. Glad that I didn’t pay up front so I could just walk away and took Uber to another station for car rental. Very frustrating.

The guy at the counter was very friendly and was working as hard as he could. Although I had a reservation, still had to wait in line nearly an hour to pick up the car.
1.9 HorribleAug 25 2021
It was the worst experience with customer service. They are complete idiots. Either their training is terrible and mimicking brainless machines or the company is completely inflexible. I rented a car at Hilton Head airport. I wanted to extend my stay for 3 more days and when I called, the price markup was so exorbitant that it was insulting - hundreds of dollars more than reasonable. I was forced to drive the car back to the airport, walk over 3 steps to the Thrifty counter and rent ANOTHER car for the same price I had initially. I mean, OK, so my money isn't that important to you but my experience with Budget and customer service will be remembered for a long time. You might not care about my few dollars but you should care about customers since you're in a service industry.

The Savannah location is incredibly short staffed. Pick up took 3 hours. The car was fine once received but sweet Christ I did not expect to wait that long for a car.

Horrendous multi hour lines at pickup and drop off - this location takes way more reservations than they can service in a timely manner Total hell at point of pickup and drop off - everyone furious

My rental vehicle had only 200 miles on it when I started my rental period.
1.9 HorribleJul 23 2021
Spent 3.5 hours in line picking up the rental car, never experienced anything like it in my life. Employees and manager seemed unconcerned and dismissive to their customers. Everyone was shocked at the service and treatment. When we got the car, it was dirty. Heading back to the airport, the car wouldn't start. We finally got a jump start after being soaked by rain. Filled the car without turning it off because I was worried that it would not start. I have rented thousands of cars, and this was the worst experience by far. I will never rent from Budget again.
1.9 HorribleJul 22 2021
4 hour wait at airport for car. Did not receive car that I ordered, no staff there to go over car when I finally got it. Was just handed keys. Called customer service, put on hold and did get a person. Was not able to reach anyone.

Our flight was delayed and by the time we got to rental car counter, nobody was there to help us. We were stranded. Had to take over a $100 Uber ride to our Airbnb. Very unprofessional. Last person working should have checked reservations and waited for those who were coming in on that late flight...I have never had this happen before.....

They gave away our car and didn’t have another one waiting. We ended up cancelling our reservation and went booth to booth to find another rental. Terrible customer service in Savannah.

We arrived very late and the employee was fast and friendly and gave us a great car for the week.Really one of the best car rental experiences we've ever had. It was slightly confusing upon returning the car as there was not the typical employee out in the lot to check the car back in so we just went in and dropped off the keys at the counter.
5.6 OkayOct 8 2020
The chance of dropping the car off in Miami rather than at the same office as the pick up. An explanation about the difference in between the pre paid fuel tank option and the self filling. I shouldn’t paid for the pre paid as I wouldn’t do that amount of miles in just two days.

The Enterprise staff was friendly and very helpful. I had asked for an economy car and Kayak gave me a luxury car. When we arrived in Savanah the Enterprise rep asked me if the assigned car was okay and I requested a smaller one. The rep put us in an economy car (my initial request) and saved us $200. Maybe I should have rented directly through Enterprise.

Car was very expensive...smelled like a barn, seats were very stained...and it was high mileage.... only redeeming factor was that I was able to rent a car even tho car availability was limited....and I booked it 3 months in advance..very disappointing

We reserved a convertible (mustang or similar). They didn’t have one for us so we asked for a downgrade and got a Focus. They still billed us for the convertible rate even though they said there would be a savings.

After repeated attempts to rent a vehicle that already a reservation, staff was nice enough to give us a vehicle.Don’t reserve more cars then you have available. There too many people that had to get stranded at the airport due to making a reservation and Enterprise not having enough vehicles.
6.4 GoodJun 27 2020
the rate I was charged was different than contract. $75 was on contract, I paid 122 Also, when I got to counter for pickup, they did not have car (grand Caravan ) that was supposed to be there and they acted like that was normal occurrence. fortunately, one came in but the process took about 30 minutes not 5-10 like it should have. I did not feel I could count t on getting what was I was supposed to get.Dropoff was no problem

I was originally given a pick up truck. I knew it was a busy weekend and they were likely sold out of cars. I explained I would be shuttling my mom around and it would be difficult for her to get in the truck. They took the time to clean a returned car. It was so appreciated! Thanks

no, long lines and slow -poerhaps it was customer problems but the staff seemed to need help.They had to change my car me because they didn't have the car I ordered - they offered me a truck but they have problems with getting in and out, so the only thing they had has a small car, which I accepted, but they didn't offer me a change in rate. Said they had to get supervisors approval who wasn't there.

Helpful staff. Easy return. Thank goodness the navigation system worked as we used it to get to our destinations.The line to pick up rental was long; waited 1/2 hr-45 min as there weren't enough cars ready for the customers ahead of me to pick up. Staff also mentioned that they were short staffed that day.

DID NOT LIKE At pick up there were only two ladies working. One was a manager of some sort. They were bickering back and forth because they had 12 people in line and no cars to give.Offer the people who had a reservation something because of Thrifty's poor planning. It literally took 20 minutes per person to rent a car. The long haired brunette asked if I wanted a midsize car and I said "no", I rented an intermediate. My rental was WAAAY over what I was supposed to pay.

The Payless counter in Savannah is closed. A sign directed me to the Budget Rental Car counter which had a long line and only 2 agents. There were people standing around for hours waiting for a car to become available. We got lucky and didn't have to wait once we finally checked in, but the car we got was not cleaned. At that point, we had been in line for an hour, so we went ahead and took the dirty car. It smelled like sour milk, but at least it was the size we reserved and otherwise was issue-free.More rental cars are definitely needed in Savannah!!
7.6 GoodJul 14 2020
Payless does not have any employees working at the Savannah airport location. You have to go to Budget/Avis. Then they walk you all the way back to the Payless counter where they have to manually fill out paperwork because computers do not come up properly and the printer is broken. The employee that helped me was fantastic. Had she not been this extra time spent and nonsense would have been a terrible experience. There is no one to check cars back in for Avis/Budget or Payless. For Avis and Budget you can fill out mileage and put it in the box but for Payless you have to go back to Avis and budget wait in line and give them the key and paperwork. They should just add a Payless box. Had that line been longer I could have easily waited 20-30 min just to hand that to someone. The process is not well thought out.

They did not have one single car available but still booked my $450 reservation turning me away from the rental counter after three tries. No upgrades, just said they had no cars and there weren’t going to be any no matter how long I waited.

They claimed to not have my reservationI still got a carI arrived at the counter during my reservation time and was told I didn't have a reservation. The attendant told me this was because I had used a third party vendor instead of the corporate website. The staff than told me it would be more than double the cost of my reservation for the same and rental length. I left the counter and called the number from my reservation. Provided my name and confirmation number. Everything was according to my reservation. The attendant assured me there was nothing to be done. I paid the day of price and am waiting for a response from Payless corporate.

Nobody’s homeOur flight was delayed. When we arrived at the airport we went straight to car rental at Payless. Not a soul was around. They closed at 11pm and we arrived at 11:04 to their desk. All other car rentals were open but had no cars available. They very easily could have seen we were delayed but arriving in minutes and waited for a customer. Lesson learned that Payless isn’t about customer service.

Car hire excess insurance in Garden City

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Garden City car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Garden City.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Garden City car rental.
