Cons: I reserved a premium SUV 1 week in advance. I called 2 days prior to pickup to make sure the car was there. The local merchant did not answer the phone, so I called the 1800 number to assure my vehicle was there. The vehicle I reserved was not there when I went to pick up and I was offered a minivan

Jan 5 2016
Pros: Rented a van for a Florida vacation for extended family. There was 11 of us. Rented 15 passenger van. Everything was good but could've used a little more room in the back for luggage. We ended up piling up on the front seats and using the very back seat for luggage. Van also had stains on the seats but other than that, everything else was ok.
Cons: Stains on seats The room that was in the vehicle overall

Once more, Avis rents smelly, dirty cars from Roanoke, VA
Pros: The price was good for a dropped vehicle.
Cons: Once again, Avis doesn't really clean the cars much in Roanoke; it wasn't as large a car as I had rented (I rented a full size and received a Nissan Sentra) and the car was so beat up on the outside that I was concerned that I might be charged for it. Fortunately, the Avis at Dulles Airport has the same sort of attitude of mediocrity in service, so they don't seem to care that they are renting dirty, worn out cars.

Avis the Place that you think as good as Enterprise, but NOPE!
Pros: Ease of coming and going.
Cons: Class of Car, Cleanliness of Car, comfort of the car, and NO other options on the lot for a normal rate! I will skip Avis next time because of their customer service!

Cons: That you had to have a major credit card when you picked up and could not use a debit card. That is all some people travel with. I will be renting from someone else next time because some of the others I know take debit. This was the first time renting with Hertz. Never again!

Great price for a 3 day weekend rental but couldn't get over how dirty
Pros: Great price for a full size car and super quick easy pickup at the airport.
Cons: Even though the price was great for a Hyundai Sonata we just couldn't get over how dirty, old, well used the car was. The car had close to 40,000 miles and looked it. Large deep scratch down the drivers side but the worst part was the filthy upholestry and windows. We had to stop 2 different times to clean all of the interior windows because you just couldn't see through the haze. The towels were black, literally black after wiping them down. The seats could not be cleaned. This was not a quick wipe up of a spill, this was deep down stained over the years dirty. While the price was great and it was indeed a nice large size car the dirty and super well used automobile makes me score a lot lower than usual.

Toaster car makes more than toast!
Pros: I admit to being a little prejudiced towards the Kia Soul because of their ads featuring hamsters driving toasters, but I was pleased with its performance. Plenty of room, good visibility, and pep. Was a little rough ride over bumps and kinda awkward getting out of the car, but overall was acceptable. I would still never own one, but I'd be fine renting that model again. Budget made the rental process seamless.
Cons: Ride was a little rough. Hard to get out of.

Pros: The employee was kind and let me check-in early, the process overall was quick and efficient. No hard sell on extra services. Check-out was similarly efficient, same employee, he was kind and took care of the check-out even though I forgot my paperwork.
Cons: The car was unclean and had a strong cigarette odor(I'm a non smoker). I took photos for my own sake, and would have asked for a second car if I wasn't late for an appointment. The odor stuck to my clothes and I smelled like cigarettes every time I got out of the rental.

Can’t even believe it
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: Arrived and counter person informed that I was at the wrong airport location (because the consumer understands there are two budget airport locations in a town as small as roanoke, when I am told by customer service, yes pick up from the Roanoke airport there is only one conclusion to draw). He then laughed at me for being so stupid in front of other customers. I got a rental which I have pictures of that was not only absolutely filthy, but still had duct tape on the doors and trunk. The gas tank was half full despite the “full” indication on the paperwork. After informing him I was from Alaska I got to listen to how much he disproved of my senator and how the death penalty should be reintroduced nationwide. I was pulled over for a taillight the morning after pick up (day of travel) and I was informed the gentlemen filled the incorrect last name out, completely different from my own by every letter (not just a simple misspelling) and was told to go to the rental place immediately (I have both copies of paperwork) the best part? He wrote my correct drivers license number clearly showing this was malicious. I absolutely cannot even believe what happened. It’s so unbelievable it sounds like a fallacy. I assure you it is not. I am at a loss for words from my experience.
