10.0 ExcellentMay 31 2021
Pros: Staff was outstanding at dropoffCons: Nothing. Everything was great
6.0 GoodApr 12 2021
Pros: There was nothing over and above what was reasonably expected of such a transaction.Cons: I requested to extend the rental period, however, the customer "service" person stated the rate for the days during the extension was twice the rate I had for the initial rental. He could do absolutely zero, nothing, utterly not empowered as a frontline customer facing representative to even attempt to make it feasible for me let alone achieve "customer delight." When ending the call the representative asked if he could do anything else for me, I responded, "No, your competitor is going to." The representative had no response other than to read the script on his screen and say, "Thank you, have a nice day." A bot has more decision making power and understanding. I went to an Alamo competitor, rented for an extended period of time and started a corporate account with that competitor. And that's how easy it is to loose the lifetime value of a customer. You can do better.
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: Having a vehicle when arriving Having a vehicle that works Doing oil change instead of having client deal with the light and consistent warning signal Change windshield wiper so i dont have too!!
8.0 ExcellentDec 21 2020
Pros: drop off easy, nice staffCons: very expensive
2.0 MediocreNov 30 2020
Cons: Staff was rude when I questioned 50% increase in price versus quote from Kayak.
8.8 ExcellentOct 21 2020
Pros: I loved picking out our car and the fast drop off and shuttle.Cons: Arriving only one person was working to get people to cars, which caused a bottleneck, despite that one person being great!
2.0 MediocreOct 20 2020
Pros: Not muchCons: Pick up was ridiculous we had to wait In The rain to be picked up to be taken for our rental car Overpriced for what we got
9.6 ExcellentOct 19 2020
Pros: The staff at the Philadelphia off-airport location were very helpful, and they made the pickup quick and easy.Cons: As I waited outside the airport for the shuttle to bring me to the rental car lot, the blue National/Alamo bus approached as I waved, then drove right past me without even slowing. I'd been waiting for a while. A Dollar/Thrifty driver slowed down to check on me when I wasn't even waving at him, and ended up giving me a ride and dropping me off outside Alamo. So that was exceptionally cool and even heartwarming. When I mentioned it to the Alamo desk staff, they did give me a $25 discount. So ... I'm all good with it.
4.0 OkayOct 13 2020
Pros: The drop off was easyCons: The car smelled like cigarette smoke the driver side side mirror was malfunctioning
2.0 MediocreSep 23 2020
Cons: No one answered when I called to confirm a car was available and no one was at the rental counter when I arrived to pick up the car. Totally unprofessional.

5.6 OkayNov 23 2020
Pros: The staff was very good- they were well organized and working hard. There were lots of customers for limited staff. They were efficient and did their jobs well - there was no time for niceties other than polite service. They were inconsistent in enforcing the rule about "only the renter may come in the building". As a result my wife stood in the cold and watched other couples inside who elected not to comply with the stated rules. The car I got was adequate and functioned fine but was quite expensive (modest car- pretty high rate 140/2 days- tiny Hyundai) so it was adequate but not outstanding value. Return process was highly effective with good speed and no glitches. Again-staff is excellent. Overall- competent but modest value and inconsistent adherence to rules.Cons: Standardize adherence to rules. More staff on busy days. More product selection.
2.0 MediocreOct 26 2020
Pros: no, they were not helpful and they were misleading. Apparently they required an airline confirmation as we were paying with a debit card. 3 trips walking to the rental building in the rain the story changed slightly each time as far as what was need. never got the car and will certainly let all know that the Enterprise holding rental companies are incompetant.Cons: FIre the entire staff at the Philadelphia airport and hire a staff of concerned workers who work hard to keep their job and seek improvement, not the type that is hired and they feel entitled.
4.8 OkayOct 20 2020
Pros: The staff were decent. they were friendly and somewhat understanding. The car I received was not the car reserved. and the car received had a horrible odor that the staff tried to convince me of cleaning products. IT WAS NOT!!!! and it smelled so bad the whole trip i had to personally buy air fresheners. Literally!!!! and i know some of my stuff smelled like the car after a few hours. NO GOOD!!!!!!!!!Cons: I asked for a better smelling car before i took it off the lot and they convinced me that the smell would go away. No the smell didnt. Car ran smooth.... also it woulda been nice to have some gas in the car before leaving the lot too.
9.2 ExcellentOct 19 2020
Pros: Drop off excellent and efficient. Shuttle service was excellent.Cons: Pickup was slightly slower than expected. 3 companies sharing one rental area delayed the process. Many clients were waiting in line.
9.2 ExcellentOct 10 2020
Pros: The staff was very helpful, pleasant and informative. There was a little wait at pick up but nothing crazy. Drop off was in and out but overall the experience was excellent!Cons: Nothing!
2.0 MediocreOct 8 2020

10.0 ExcellentOct 5 2020
Pros: The woman shae! She was so very nice beautiful and just willing to be helpful! She derserves a pay raise!
3.2 MediocreSep 26 2020
Pros: Drop off was fine.Cons: There were no cars there when I arrived at my scheduled pick up time, and 5 other people waiting for the same reason. After waiting an hour and a half they drove me half an hour away to to a run down, dirty location in Kensington for a car with bird droppings all over and several dents and scrapes.
2.0 MediocreSep 25 2020
Pros: They washed itCons: They only had a pickup truck available
7.6 GoodSep 7 2020
Cons: Drop off at Airport $75.00 up charge is excessive. Originally I was quoted $50.00

10.0 ExcellentJun 7 2021
Cons: More specific instructions on how to get to the facility. The rental facility was literally across from the arrival location but I was waiting for quite a while for a shuttle bus. I stopped one of the other companies buses and he told me I could walk to it faster than waiting for the bus.
4.0 OkayJun 1 2021
Pros: The car was like new, no issues.Cons: Why was I allowed to book a drop-off location that was closed on Memorial Day? The person at the Avis counter made ME call Avis to find a solution. The car also didn't have a full tank of gas.
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
Pros: NothingCons: The van never came to the airport and we had to walk to Avis,. Thent there were only two agents and we we #9 in line and that took an hour. The the car smelled terrible of smoke and there was bird mess all over the pasenger windshield. Upon the return thery were usin only one small bus to transport back to airport, a long line and again we had to walk back to the airport rather than wait the long time it wold have taken.

10.0 ExcellentJun 19 2021
Pros: the ease of getting the car and drop off and the staff was greatCons: pick up at the airport, seemed to wait more than 20 minutes for a shuttle to come around
6.0 GoodJun 14 2021
Cons: The shuttle service from the airport was very slow. Once the van was there, the driver did not help with the luggage. The wait to get our car was very long. Once we had our car, we were told they didn’t know where it is and just to push the panic button to locate it and finally, the documentation we had received was for the wrong car and we had to find someone to figure out why there were scratches on the car that were not documented. So... some things could definitely be improved...

Pros: Staff friendly but had to waitCons: Car broke down
2.0 MediocreJun 6 2021
Pros: Nothing. We arrived at 10:40 PM only to find out that they closed at 8:00 PM - something that we had not been told ahead of time. AND, WE PREPAID! What a ripoff! I doubt that I will ever use Kayak or SixT again. Had it not been for another helpful rental car company, we would have been stranded and missed the event that we flew in for.

2.0 MediocreJun 15 2021
Pros: N/a.Cons: Mostly Rude staff, car smelled Smokey, was not told where or how to drop off car before business hours and Almost missed flight as a result. Do not rent here.
2.0 MediocreJun 15 2021
Cons: First off customer service was terrible, there were 3 people behind the counter 1 didn’t want to work and the manager who just stood there and would not help even when it’s was extremely busy. It took 45 minutes to actually get in the car from arriving and there was only 1 person in front of us when we got there. Felt very badly for the family behind us who came in right behind us and got ignored and when they complained the manager told them he didn’t see them? I paid a premium for the luxury “sports” car and while it would have been a nice car, the drivers side mirror was badly damaged and I had to manually move it in to place. There was not much holding the mirror on and had a very nice crack in it. The 2 USB ports didn’t work and windshield wipers did not work properly. Definitely not something I would expect for a premium vehicle. Overall very dissatisfied with the whole experience.
6.0 GoodJun 12 2021
Pros: The drop off was fast.Cons: Pick up was awful!!! We had to wait in line for 1 1/2 because they only had 3 people working at the desk. It took forever!! I won’t use Dollar again.

Pros: Waiting for 3 hours in line at Philly airport to pick up car. Only two people working the desk. Only two people bringing cars out. Had to take a car I did not reserve. It was bigger than I wanted. Asked for a smaller car and was told this was all they had to offer. Spoke to Thrifty many times on the phone -- call center in India. They were absolutely no help. Will never rent from Thrifty or Hertz again.Cons: Everything.

10.0 ExcellentJul 26 2021
4.0 OkayJul 1 2021
Pros: The cat was great.Cons: Pickup and drop off. HUGE long line at the pickup and rude staff. How about hiring more people? Perhaps pay people better and get more and better staff? Also too long a wait after drop off to catch the bus to the terminal.
10.0 ExcellentJun 14 2021
Pros: Staff, vehicle, service
10.0 ExcellentMay 31 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off was quick and efficient. Car was clean and met our needs.Cons: A little pricey but the best deal I could find. Computer would not allow the pick up rep to add a driver.
2.0 MediocreMay 30 2021
Cons: Hourlong wait to pick up the car. Understaffed and slow-moving.
4.0 OkayMay 24 2021
Pros: The shuttle bus was the dirtiest vehicle I have ever has the displeasure to ride in. The pick up staff was not very friendly. The young lady that helped me would not look at me or have a pleasant conversation with me regarding my rental. She told me that my contract had been emailed to me, however I never received it. She did not give me a reason to return to Budget in the future. The drop off staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially the gentlemen that checked in my vehicle on my return.Cons: The shuttle bus should be retired from your fleet. The young lady could have looked at me and had a conversation with me regarding my rental. Please note, she did her job but it was not a pleasant experience.
6.0 GoodMay 4 2021
Pros: The car was ok.Cons: We waited for 2 hours to pick up a car. We didn’t get our car until 2am, because they were short staffed and Budget was actually closed, so we had to go to Avis to get a car. At drop off we were charged $360 for gas, which has to be an error, and we’ve called 4 times to speak with someone and have been out on hold for over an hour each time, with no resolution. We will NEVER rent from Budget again.
4.0 OkayApr 11 2021
Cons: The car was clean but smelled awful. I was in a rush and didn’t have time to go back and change it out. The $200 I paid for the car I should not have to put up with a smelly car.
6.0 GoodMar 18 2021
Cons: I know I came in later but the toll pass was not explained so I ended up assuming it was working and it was not . The car also smelled of smoke.

Rental Truck Bed Too SmallPros: The purpose of the rental was to haul a new mattress. It would not fit in the tiny bed. The next size up in pick up truck would have doubled the price. The person working the counter was less than enthusiastic.
10.0 ExcellentDec 18 2017
Pros: My flight to PHL was late Fri evening and 30th Street Station National office was closed. However, the agent who I called to re-book for the next morning was outstanding, She looked up my old preferred customer (or whatever) number and got me a better deal.Then the next morning at the desk I asked about upgrading to a larger vehicle and the agent gave it me at no increase in cost. Reasons to come back to National.Cons: Car hadn't been washed.
10.0 ExcellentJun 11 2017
Easy transaction and friendly staffPros: We had multiple travel delays due to flying standby, but even after our late arrival, we had a car ready for us and we're helped promptly when we arrived.Cons: 30th street station can be difficult to navigate, but patience and close attention to signage helps.
9.6 ExcellentMay 23 2017
Good rentalPros: Easy pick up (except we couldn't figure out how to get in the facility at first since the entrance had a sign saying "car return" when we wanted to pick up a car). The people at the pick up at PHL were very polite, helpful, and friendly.
10.0 ExcellentApr 1 2017
National Car Rental is an AMAZING company to work with!Pros: From the first click on-line, to being greeted at the reception desk to sign-in at the National counter to pick up the rental car....just incredible. Everyone on the National team was top notch in their attention to details, and their customer service: stellar, truly. To the attendant who finalized our transaction paperwork, to the team member who escorted us to our rental car...simply amazing. We were struck by National's competence and we vowed to never use any other service except the best: National. A model company that all others should be measured by...exemplary in every aspect.
10.0 ExcellentDec 6 2016
Pros: The pricing was spectacular and the car was good on gas.Cons: The interior of the car was not cleaned properly before I picked it up.

Cars Were Smelly Or Unusable/Counter Person Had anCons: My Chrysler 200 had a stain on the driver's seat and the interior smelled. The first car offered was a Nissan that someone had sprayed the gages on the dash with something that had dried and couldn't come off, making them unreadable. The woman at the counter gave me an attitude when she couldn't understand my email address. Never again National Car Rental!

Car not back to rent and wanted to charge a holdinPros: Did not rent, because the price change when I got to the rental place.
4.8 OkayFeb 21 2016
Pros: The gal at check in was very nice.Cons: Car smelled like cigarettes. A caution air tire pressure light was on at all times, but there was a little not that said to ignore the light. This was a little worrisome.
4.0 OkayFeb 4 2016
Pros: pricing was one thingCons: . a little seedy. car was not clean inside or out. the rental signing process a little outdated and in an uncomfortable setting. In the end, the pricing was not that much cheaper than the nationals/brand names. The policy about the rental period is strict. severe penalty for dropping off after 24 hour period...so ridiculous that I uber'ed to a couple places after I returned the car. My flight came in early and I picked up an hour earlier than anticipated but was leaving at my expected time 26 hours later. 2 extra hours was double the cost.
10.0 ExcellentJan 4 2016
Pros: Convenience, not having to fill out paperwork on-site and just being able to jump in the car and go, great price and quality vehicleCons: Lack of flexibility with return time
4.8 OkayDec 21 2015
Barely worth the slightly older carPros: Slightly cheaper priceCons: Had to call to find out that we wanted the Colonial Airport Parking shuttle after we waited for a while hoping for a Rent-A-Wreck shuttle. Car smelled like cigarette smoke and windows were a bit foggy on the inside. The office wasn't marked The guys at the drop off place weren't particularly helpful with my questions.
3.2 MediocreOct 29 2015
Do NOT use this companyPros: Nothing really!Cons: The dispatcher were rude! The van was in need of maintenance - exampke, wipers were old and cracked. It was a big hassle to get into the lot and find the car. The lot attendant was very rude! As my wife concluded, they have ZERO customer service.
6.0 GoodOct 14 2015
Pros: Due to trouble with the mechanics of the car Rent a Wreck is refunding a day's charge. This should be back in account within 3 days, they say.Cons: The muffler came semidetached and it sounded like a street rod. I'm nor sure if this was a safety hazard or not but it wasn't good.

Will not rent from them againPros: I got a rental car on a day when there were almost zero options for rental cars at the airport.Cons: Waited 2 hours to get the reserved car, car exterior was damaged and severely needed washing, and finding the place was tough. It was the worst car rental experience I have had in 20 years.
2.0 MediocreNov 25 2018
Ridiculous CompanyPros: Nothing! We never got a car!Cons: They don’t pick up where the other rental car companies pick up for a shuttle. But they also never told us this. So we’re waiting in the freezing cold waiting for a shuttle with our infant son for a while until I finally call customer service. They tell me i need to send a text message to a sketchy number to pick us up somewhere else in the airport! Huh?! So we do that and they never come! Seriously! Never come! We went to Alamo instead that night and they were wonderful. Do not trust this company. They are a scam!!!
2.0 MediocreNov 12 2018
Cons: We made reservation on 11/10. Landed at Philly at 5:30pm. Bad experience from first unable to find shuttle location. Waste almost 45mins to get to ez rental car office. Then was told no car available. (There are 3 customers there). Told us can give us ride to other car rental office. But the driver just dropped us back to the airport again. By the time we got car at other car rental lamo it was close to 8pm. Waste More than 2 hours to get reserved car from ez car rental at other car rental almo. What a joke. I could drive from Boston to Philly for same time and save $600 and headache. I will never rent a car from EZ.
2.0 MediocreNov 10 2018
Cons: My 1st time using Kayak and will be my last. I gave Kayak a chance and it was a mistake. I needed a rent car in Philadelphia and i booked through Kayak. My travel plans got delayed which caused me to arrive in Philly after 8 p.m. I found out that the EZ rental facility closed at 8pm and i wouldn't be there until 10pm. 8pm is not very late and it completely screwed up my rental plans. Because EZ rental wouldn't allow me to get my car after 8pm i attemped to cancel the kayak reservation and they absolutely would not refund my money despite my unfortunate circumstances. So now I have to pay over $200 for a rental i didn't even use. The worst part is i STILL had to pay to get another car rental elsewhere on top of my Kayak rental. I gave Kayak a chance and I am very disappointed that i did. I wouldn't have any bad feelings if kayak would just refund my money for a rental that i wasn't able to use. When i found out my travel plans were going to be delayed I tried to cancel my rental before it started and still kayak wouldnt work with me. I would understand more if i missed the rental completely but i let them know before i was scheduled to even begin my rental.
2.8 MediocreJul 1 2018
Pros: The car worked.Cons: We lost my husbands sister and had to get to De for a funeral, When we arrived there was a line to pick up car. Only one person to take care of the customer. We got taken care of bye a lady. she was doing the best she could being the only one there. we went to the car , looked it over and had no idea how to start the car, we do not have a car that you dont need a key to start. So we had no idea how to start it. we looked it over the car was dirty and I went in to ask for help. As I said she was alone. I asked her if there was anyone to help us she said no just her she would be out in a few minutes. She came out explined you must put your foot on brake to start the car. My husband thought the car ran rough . itdid not feel right we found out that a front tire and a rear tire had only 12 lbs of air in them we put air in them and it was much better. the drop off was bad also . we had a 6 am flight back home she had explained to us we go to a little building and there will be someone to check us back in after hours. when we arrived at 4 am there was no one there so we had to take a ticket to get in and park the car. there as a shuttle coming through at the time so we got on and told him what happened , we ended up giving the keys to him. he assured us he would take care of it. I called later that afternoon and explained what happened and they kinda got nasty about us giving the keys and leaving the car in the wrong spot. she said she would check with the driver. he had returned the key. I received an email all was ell . and it could take up to 21 days to get my deposit back. I will never use this company again. they were ok in the emergency but never again.
