Online Rental Information VERY Misleading!
Pros: The Hertz Rental Agent at the off-airport site where I finally picked up my car was extremely accommodating, and managed to arrange for me to return the car at the airport at no extra charge.
Cons: Your online information mislead me to understand that I would be picking my car up at the Manchester, NH airport. When I got there I found that the car was actually at a Hertz location miles away. It cost me $25 to get there by Taxi and set me back an hour that I did NOT expect. The added cost and inconvenience were really a drag, and I feel I was duped. The site needs to be more clear. I had specifically requested an AIRPORT pickup and drop-off when I logged in.

I extended the rental a few extra days
Pros: I like that the car is good on gas and has bluetooth capabilities. It has a large trunk for a small car.
Cons: The car handles poorly and the gas cap is missing. There is also a burn hole in the passenger seat and scuff marks on the ceiling. Overall it's not in very good "rental" condition. It takes forever to heat up when cold out also.

Pros: Lines were short
Cons: I signed up for a surprise car rental for 5 adults and 4 suitcases I was told I had signed up for a Ford Focus : this didn't meet my rental criteria. I was shown that a Ford Focus was rated for 5 adults. Seriously I had to pay for an update to get a car that would accommodate 5 adults and 4 suitcases not a great experience to start a driving vacation

company policy is terrible
Cons: As a consumer i like to keep my debt low. Only one credit card with low amount. Like to pay cash and use bank card. Lots of funds available. Could not rent because company won't allow use of bank card. Had to use a different rental company. Very disappointed

Can not say I would use Kayak again.
Pros: You offered an excellent price and reservation process was simple.
Cons: When I arrived at the counter the confirmation I repeatedly gave as well as showed the agent came under someone else's name with a pick up in Florida (I was in New Hampshire). The agent was confused, contacted her supervisor, and then offered to give me the car under the other person's name which I felt was quite unacceptable. I had to cancel the reservation, cancel the insurance, and then rebook which of course was at a higher price. Very disappointing and time consuming.

Upsell
Pros: Car and service quality was on par with their competitors.
Cons: Albany airport return location is off site and less convenient than their competitors. The upsell for prepay for toll roads in NY was a little over the top and not necessary but otherwise their approach was typical.

Fine till they double charged me
Pros: The car was nice enough and good on gas
Cons: They double charged me when I dropped off the car and had to wait for about 5 days for the money to get released and back into my account and kayak should include all the fees I the price quoted...I also paid twice as much as the site said I would

NO KIOSk
Pros: Appreciated the competitive price, with a last minute rental. No price gouging.
Cons: The kiosk was a nightmare. It took more than ten minutes to use and at the end told me to start over and pick another location, because of pick-up and drop off times - when the times were on the first screen. The young man at the desk handled every thing for me. No conflict with the times.

Excellent customer service
Pros: The first car we rented was used by a smoker and the car stunk! We informed the company and went back to the Manchester NH airport and Jake at that location took great care of us with an upgrade. Two thumbs up for Jake.
Cons: Phone customer service was slow, we were on the phone for 40 minutes without an clear solution to replace the vehicle that stunk of cigarette smoke.

Vehicle felt unsafe
Pros: The car 'looks' good and it was very easy to pick up car at MHT airport.
Cons: The car was loose feeling, I didn't feel safe changing lanes. I was on the highway and it's not easy to turn around or I would have driven right back. In addition the driver's side mirror has a warped appearance which I understand (after I turned the vehicle in) is a Honda design for better view of cars beside you. NOT SO...I felt like it was a mirror from a carnival. I called Thrifty and was told to bring the car in to my destination location (no suggestion of a location along the way) that night, to swap...only to find they were closed. It was a terrible experience that I would never want to repeat. I was so grateful that I didn't have to drive that car back to MHT airport because of the weather. I couldn't imagine maneuvering that car in snow. I rent cars on a fairly regular basis and this was a car that needs work before letting anyone drive again.

Oct 13 2016
Cons: We were not provided the address of where to return the car other than Albany airport and it was off the airport property which was stressful to find and almost made us lose the plane. I don't want to rent where it is not on airport grounds to pick up and return.

Exploding rear window
Pros: All was great until the rear window exploded
Cons: When in Virginia (on our way home from Florida to NH), I closed the passenger side door and the rear window of our Kia Sedona exploded. To say it scared us is an understatement. Apparently, this is not unheard of in a Sedona. In fact, it is recommended that you open a window prior to closing the door to relieve the interior air pressure. No one ever told us this. We were stranded for over 2 hours while waiting for the tow truck. Our trip home was delayed causing issues with traffic and time frames.

No major issues. Dollar rental through Thrifty.
Pros: The van was adequate for our purpose. We had 4 adults and 2 children in our party. We used the van for 15 days. The price was about $29 a day, not bad for a van. We had 6.5 hrs of drive time loaded with bags and and a couple of coolers. It was right but doable.
Cons: I think as an industry some rental agencies cost for another driver is excessive. Although the rental was a great price. The added cost (of $13.50) took a lot of the savings away. I will try to stay clear of renters who have excessive fees in the future when there is another driver.

Recent Experience
Pros: Was ready with a vehicle, vacuumed it out before I left
Cons: Wrong sized car. I specifically wanted a certain sized car and they didn't have one that sized. I was upgraded to an SUV - did not appreciate.Also on my return to another airport (Albany, NY), I returned earlier than the Enterprise workers came, so was unsure where to drop off and how to get to the terminal on time for very early flight. I'm not sure I'll repeat my my Enterprise experience.

Pros: Friendly helpful staff
Cons: 1) that you couldn't pick up from the airport. Like where do most of your customers without cars come from? 2) I booked on kayak and it ended up being $50 more than provided and then there was the extra deposit. I was fine fronting the deposit and paying more because I really needed the car but I wanted to be told up front so that I could better prepare.

Simple Timing can Mean Everything
Cons: I made the reservation showing arrival @ the airport at 6PM. Since the rental location was OFF-SITE, the time to cab over to the rental location got me there to find out that they closed shop at 6PM. NOT GOOD Had to rent from another company the next day. Highly inconvenient.

Pros: The young man that picked us up from our hotel and took us to the rental site was outstanding. He was so friendly and so conversive. I'm sorry that I can't remember his name because he should get recognition for doing an outstanding job. ALL rental car personnel should take training lessons from him
Cons: Great experience! Nothing to change.
