Cons:

The agent offered a upgrade for a fee for a jeep cherokee. I had an issue with my card and had to call them. I walked from the transaction to call the card provider and was assigned a Nissan Rogue. I have hated every Nissan I have driven and would never pay extra to drive one. It was past 9 pm and I still had to go home and load up before leaving on my 800 mile drive to be with my mom who's husband died the next morning. My back still hurts from the low quality nissan seating .

KAYAK

Cons:

We rented for a month an SUV in order to go from CA to FL. The internal electrical stopped working on our way there. When I called to alert the problem in California, they told me to go to the nearest airport enterprise location in FL. Here, their first answer was that I should take it to a Firestone store to get it checked. I called the nearest Firestone and they told me they couldn't touch the car being so new and low milage; it was the dealership's problem. I called enterprise again and they told me to take it to the nearest dealership. At the dealership they told me that they can't service a car brought in by the customer. With enough frustration built, and the original San Jose office shinning by their absence, I demanded a simple swap of the car but they made me call 4 different enterprise locations in FL looking for an SUV replacement. An assistant manager in Daytona finally managed to put us in a minivan, but all of this took 20 calls and 3 days of painful dodging by their representatives. I will definitely be dodging their service in their future. Not recommend.

Pros:

Friendly staff.

Cons:

1. Someone picking up the phone (called two open locations, no answer, one said to leave a message). 2. Being given instructions for one-way drop off at airport at time of rental or at least posted in rental car drop off lot. I had to call Enterprise to find out what to do once I parked the car as there was no attendant (Medford, OR). 3. Receiving revised receipt. There "special" car was a huge, double-cab pick up truck. Basically, no trunk and this was an airport pick up. So, I upgraded to a Toyota Corolla. When I dropped off the car, I was told a receipt would automatically be emailed to me but I never received and had to contact customer report for a copy.

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was a nightmare. I dropped it off at another location as the original reservation was, but I was not registered in the system when I picked up the car. The manager and staff did not know what to do and couldn’t assist me. They could not get a hold of the original airport I rented from to finish my registration so they could close my account. I had to call enterprise customer service personally standing in the enterprise office to speak to customer service to help. I spent nearly 2 hours there just trying to drop off my car. Staff and manager were not helpful and did not apologize once.

Cons:

The car was great and clean, no issues there. See above for why I am rating a poorly.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was clean and the price was very fair. However, see below...

Cons:

I rented a certain class for not only the luxury comfort, but for the size. However, Dollar did not have the car I rented. They first tried to down grade me to a lower class, but larger car. I did not think this was fair so I did not agree. We went through the options and I explained, due to having two of my elder uncles with me and their need for a larger car, I needed something larger. Eventually a larger car was offered, but at a much higher rate. Again, I did not agree as a car in my category should have been available to me. Eventually I was offered another luxury vehicle (supposedly in the same class), but much smaller and the entire weekend we had difficulty getting my uncles in and out of it. Due to the inability to have a car ready for me in the class I rented I would have preferred the “upgrade” to an adequate car but the agent would not agree without additional payment to which I did not think was fair.

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff were very friendly at pick up and drop off and the car was clean. It had a few scratches, but nothing too bad. Fuel economy was better than expected.

Cons:

The price was significantly better than other companies for the same type of car and it would have rated a higher score on value for money if it were not for the fact that the car needed some TLC. The engine sounded rough under load (like it was knocking), it needed oil (which I added) and the convertible top had trouble locking properly when it was lowered. I noticed later that the key had a sticker on it that said "check engine", but it seems that was not done.

Pros:

Guy in the booth was nice.

Cons:

Loaded car up and drove off only to find they put the wrong car in the wrong parking spot. THEN AVIS Budget group has done this repeatedly. You drive less than 75 miles and THEY AUTOMATICALLY ADD A FUEL CHARGE, even if the guy at returns notes that you filled the tank. Most people won't complain and you will spend hours trying to resolve this with their Call Center, the Social Media Group and then the Executive TEAM, JUST SAVE TIME AND AVOID BUDGET AVIS AT ALL COST (or be prepared to be ripped off and spend hours needlessly.)

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Not much.

Cons:

On the website, I had reserved a standard-size SUV. When I went to pick up the vehicle, they gave me one that I was not familiar with but which I soon learned was compact SUV. I did not have time to go back and complain, but it made our entire trip a bit harrowing, and I feel like I was ripped off by Budget. This felt like a bait-and-switch scam. When I picked up the car, it was clean, but it had that horrible "new car smell" in it that is really disgusting, especially for someone who has allergies. I ended up having to light a match inside the vehicle in order to subdue that grotesque smell. When I went to drop off the vehicle, the entrance to the Budget drop off location was closed and it pointed me to Avis. This forced me to backup in the wrong direction on a one-way street. There was a tiny sign at the Avis drop-off location for Budget but it was not visible unless you stopped at the Avis drop-off location and looked for it. Overall, this was not a pleasant experience and I cannot recommend either Budget or Kayak.

On paper it says I got car at 5:36 but reality was that car was no ready and got it at 5:59p not a problem understandable even if it delay me am put me to more traffic time but for them is not ok for us to turn late, I got there at 8;07p and seems I was charge another. My point is we don’t get discount for pick up late but get fully charged for being late “very fair”

The signs at the airport were poor. Luckily a security guard arrived and directed me to the 4th floor. I rented from Payless, a sign at their counter directed me to Budget and, in the end I got the car keys from Avis. Car was small, as ordered, so the comfort wasn't excellent, but as expected. The onboard computer and controls, in the Nissan Versa, are hard to understand and reset. I never trusted the distance-to-empty indicator/estimate and when driving almost 2,000 miles that is important. Had two cellphones connected, one for calls and one for audio. The incoming calls always kept going to voice mail after pausing the audio. Overall excellent, but quirky. Recommend

Our pick up was scheduled for 9 and we came to the counter at 8:45, but no one was there. We waited until about 9:14 and decided to just go to the elevator to the lot since there was still no one there to help or no sign for instructions

The car had not been cleaned. Also it had body damage that had not been fixed. The car was expensive, and they would not let me cancel my reservation. I will not use them again.

The associates there were really friendly and kind. Our car got broken into the first day of our vacation. Thank goodness we had insurance on the vehicle. We did a swap that same day and went on out way.

The agent was very rude, required a 500$ deposit to rent locally. Do NOT rent from these guys - especially in your own towns. I think they don’t want your business.

Pros:

Staff was inept and inexperienced to handle a simple situation. We liked the car model.

Cons:

The car was not cleaned at all. Surprising they rented out without cleaning and sanitizing in COVID times. After bringing this issue to the agent, he said he could not help it. I was mad but had no option but to take it. Myself and two of my family members cleaned the car inside out for two hours before starting the trip. Horrible experience. Won’t rent from Avis again.

Pros:

Cheap price and no wait. Because SixT is less well known than the others, the lines for pick up were atrocious at Hertz, Avis, etc but non-existent at SixT. Mildly slick attempt at getting us to choose un-needed insurance (aren't they all?) but otherwise super-attentive service. No prob with the car at all. Drop off was a breeze.

Cons:

A couple of dents in the car not documented at pick-up - we had to note these and have them write then down before we took off with the vehicle.

Pros:

They did have availability of the van. Ran well.

Cons:

wrong address was provided by Kayak. They gave us 15 seat passenger van with zero cargo space. They did not even tell us about this upfront. Also i had to wait 45 minutes at the rental space for them to finish cleaning up, and they changed the rental vehicle at the last minute. Van was not fully cleaned. The back seats were very dirty.

Top tips for hiring a car in San Jose

  • Explore every nook and cranny of San Jose with the flexibility a hire car can provide. Whether it is a trip to the Alum Rock Park in the northeast of San Jose or the Levi Stadium, which is about 9 miles out of the city, a hire car can get you there in no time.
  • There are various hire car options at San Jose International Airport, including Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and Sixt. The Rental Car Center can be found at Terminal B and passengers landing at Terminal A are provided with a shuttle bus transporting them directly to the Rental Center.
  • Californian cities in general are teeming with tourists during the summer season and traffic can be a challenge during peak times. Also, drivers have a reputation to not use the turn signals when changing lanes or making a turn, so always double-check and drive carefully. Always watch out for pedestrians, as crosswalks are sometimes not properly indicated, and San Jose is one of the cities with the highest pedestrian death rates, so it’s better to be safe.
  • San Jose’s morning rush hour is at its worst between 7 and 8:30 AM, so it is advisable to avoid starting any trips during that time. Between 4:30 and 6:00 PM, when workers return to their homes, traffic increases significantly again, especially on the US-101. As San Jose is famous for its amazing weather, the summer season comes with tourists and therefore more congestion on the roads, so always plan at least 30 minutes ahead.
  • Book your car hire in San Jose at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
