Pros:

While most rental car agencies in Albuquerque had no cars available, this site did. The staff at the pickup location were acceptable in handling renting a car with some concerns; at drop off they were very courteous.

Cons:

full tank of gas, windshield without damage, tire warning indicator not giving a false warning

The guys were so friendly. They got us all set up quickly and the return process was really fast. As a female, I appreciate that they didn't try to hard sell me on anything or guilt me into buying things I didn't need. I would definitely rent from these guys again!

Pros:

Flexibility with the rental and the general friendliness of the staff on both pick up and drop off. It was a last minute rental via Kayak before a very late flight for pick up the next day. Everything was easy, the location was easy to access, and I'll return again if ever in the area.

Pros:

All staff members put a considerable amount of effort into customer service. The car was clean and in very good condition. It was nice that they had a one day rental available and that there was no drop off fee for picking up the car in the city and returning it at the airport.

Pros:

Customer service at Enterprise did an outstanding job rectifying the problem. Great job Jessica Schell.

Cons:

Kayak messed up the pick-up location for the car rental. Instead of at the airport, they switched it to a remote location. Very bad job.

KAYAK

Pros:

There was nothing I liked about this experience. Such a bad experience.

Cons:

They made a reservation for 12pm for a location that closed... at 12pm. The guy was still there and informed me that they “have been trying to get this changed for sometime” and did nothing to help us. We had to get a ride to another location and they tried to charge us more than double the reservation price. When I asked to speak to the manger on site, I was told that it would be 3-4hrs before she could speak with us. I spent literally hours on the phone with National. When we finally did get the car, they gave us the wrong car and didn’t tell us. When I called to tell them they gave us the wrong car, they directed me to a new location to pick up the right car. Upon arriving at the new location the person on site told me that he “didn’t know why they told us that, I don’t have any cars to give you”. No one at any of these locations were apologetic or tried to help us figure anything out. National ended up giving us a $100 credit which isn’t really that much (IMO) for how much time I spent dealing with this nightmare.

People nice at ultimate car receiving. Also, people at ABQ desk were nice.

Cons:

The car receiving location was so far from the airport that my taxi to get the car was $50 - which made the total cost almost as much as getting the car at ABQ. You have lost me!!

Cons:

Never got the car. I showed up at the airport Hertz and they said that the reservation was made at some other Hertz offsite about 20 minutes from the airport. I had to pay for another car even though I was prepaid. It was not evident when I made the reservation that it was some offsite Hertz location. Waste of money. Will never use Kayak again

Cons:

It turned out that my original booking was an off-site location which closed 5 hours before I was to arrive. It then cost well over $100 to switch to a pickup at the airport site. We got distracted on the return and failed to recover our GPS navigation unit. So far that has not been turned in by their employee. Airbag need service and the passenger bag even turned off on occasion.

This location is a train wreck. Terrible customer service. The Avis agent was watching a football game on his phone, paying more attention to that rather than getting our rental app verified. NEVER AGAIN WITH AVIS AND LIKELY NOT EVEN KAYAK.

The person that rented the vehicle was nice, but smelled horribly like smoke. The vehicle was a decent price and I was able to rent last minute without any hassle in renting. I appreciated that he didn't try to "sell" me something that I didn't need.

Cons:

I couldn't get my music for the 6 hour drive either way, even though I tried to work with the sales representative to address the issue. I had hoped to return the vehicle at 6pm on Saturday, but later found out it was only open until 12pm on Saturday (not just Sunday as I had thought).
