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

Pros:

The staff was helpful, and pickup and drop off were easy

Cons:

The car reeked of cigarettes. It was quite overpowering and I could smell it on my jacket after getting out of the car. As a family of non smokers, traveling with a young child, it was kind of gross and embarrassing.

KAYAK

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.

KAYAK

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.

Jul 2022

KAYAK
Nowhere on any of the communication was I told there was an extra $300 hold on top of the ridiculous amount I was already paying to rent a vehicle. Not everyone has an extra $300 they weren't expecting on a credit card the morning of their trip. I was lucky the family member dropping me off had a card with enough credit to use. Also, I was informed when I brought the car back I could switch it back to my card (the only reason the family member agreed to let the charge be held on their card). But, they quickly charged the family member's card at drop off and then told me they couldn't refund the money and put it on my card. Would you like to know how pissed family member was? The car itself was another issue. Even though there was an upgrade (reg SUV to Minivan) because they didn't have what I reserved (why?) and it was a 2022, it didn't have GPS or Sirius radio. I was lucky to have brought a cable to wire my phone in because the car wouldn't connect through Bluetooth. Regardless, I had to use MY phone data for GPS and music the whole time. This is not at all ok considering how expensive the rental was. I rented from Enterprise 2 years ago and felt like I landed in the lap of luxury (same type of reservation but $50 a day cheaper). The vehicle was completely loaded with all the amenities. The vehicle was immaculate. The vehicle I received this time was fairly dirty with crumbs under the seats. I was totally disappointed with the whole experience. The only good thing I have to say about the whole experience was the employee I dealt with initially. He was very friendly and very stuck with policies that made no sense ($300 charge). I used to recommend Enterprise to anyone looking to rent a car. I don't know if I can still do that. What happened?

KAYAK

Pros:

In person staff was nice but not informed well

Cons:

I tried calling Hertz 6 times to request a rental extension because of an unexpected family emergency and all six times no one answered. We also were unable to fill the car up with gas as no Gas Stations within 30 miles had a working pump due to the Oil Pipeline hack. This was ruled a State of Emergency yet Hertz still charged up $7 a gallon to fill the tank up.

Pros:

Clean and well equipped car. The agent was nice and professional

Cons:

Agent not masked. Not informed when reserving that there would be an additional $200 deposit placed on my credit card. When at the counter I was told that it would be released upon return of car. I don’t know if it has been returned yet, but I was on a trip for an interview during the pandemic and placing an additional $200 would have made my rental decision clear Togo with a different company.

KAYAK

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.
