2.0 MediocreMay 25 2021
Cons: I have forgotten my notebook in the rental car. Within1 hour of return I went back to rental location and car was rented back. The lady at the counter noted down car, descritipn and my phone number. It has been more than 10 days no one called back. I tried to call back but no response. There is no lost/found mechanism. Even though there is no monetary value to anyone of my notebook; it was important to me. Rental car company needs to have better mechanism
10.0 ExcellentDec 3 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Car delivered as advertised. Easy drop off.Cons: Better instructions on how to find the entrance to the garage when dropping car off.
5.6 OkayOct 18 2020
Pros: Staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful.Cons: After we got on the road I realized that the tires were extremely worn. We were hydroplaning on the rainy freeway and it was quite scary. The car smelled like cigarettes and there was trash from the previous user in the center console.
8.8 ExcellentSep 29 2020

8.0 ExcellentJul 13 2020
Pros: The car was sweet.Cons: When I was picking up the car they tried to up sell me 3 times. Then they offered me a soccer mom minivan and wanted to charge me $70 more. I finally just had to say I want to car I had rented to I could get out of there.
6.8 GoodJun 12 2020
Cons: The screens inside the car were smudged and not wiped off well. The person who helped us with our rental tried to pressure us into an upgrade and also into buying the insurance even though we were covered already through our own insurance, and we also already declined it when making the online reservation. He was very pushy.

4.0 OkayJun 17 2021
Pros: The woman who checked me in started out friendly but that clearly fake. In fact she was rude.she didn't show me how to psor my phone e with that specific car and she offered no solution when my card declined for the damage waiver The guy at the counter was also cold and rude and not helpful at all. Maybe they both were having rough days.Cons: The windshield was horribly streaked inside, they claimed my advance payment never got to them and they charged me 20% more. Overall not a good experience

4.0 OkayJun 12 2021

2.0 MediocreJun 12 2021
Cons: unfortunately , they never contacted me to tell me they did not have cars available for me until I get to the rent a car place and told me they could not call me because they did not have my phone number, NOT TRUE.
10.0 ExcellentMay 30 2021
Pros: The people in the rental office.Cons: Nothing
2.0 MediocreMay 26 2021
Cons: I didn't get the type of car I paid for. They gave me a compact car when I paid for a mid-size SUV, and they lied to me saying that the one I got was a mid-size SUV
8.0 ExcellentMay 19 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly. Drop off was easy. Rate was better than at airport and easy to get to.Cons: They did not have the type of vehicle we reserved. They upgraded us to a luxury vehicle for an additional $10 per day.
10.0 ExcellentMay 19 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly. Check out was quick.Cons: It wasn't clear where to leave the vehicle when returning.
6.0 GoodMay 18 2021
Pros: Very friendly staff.Cons: I reserved a small economy vehicle, which wasn’t available at time of pick up, so I was given a minivan, which isn’t much of an upgrade at all. Nonetheless, I was not charged more. The minivan was not the cleanest inside. It had less than a quarter of gas at time of pickup. Thankfully, I was not required to return with a full tank. Rental seemed expensive for a rather inefficient and ugly vehicle for my short trip.
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2021
Cons: first car was brought up low tire light on. If I could see it surely they could. Second car was Not thoroughly cleaned. It seemed to have front end steering issues. Would definitely not use again!

4.0 OkayJun 20 2021
Pros: The customer service workers we dealt with were very kind and helpfulCons: We had our flight changed and they wouldn't let us move the pickup location even though it was out of our control without upcharging us $650. We were then sent to the original the location the next morning after confirming a new pick up time. The location no longer existed. When we found our way to the next closest location, they said the reservation had passed its pickup time. When we finally got things fixed and got our car, when we returned it they upcharged for returning it to the open location and not the one that didn't exist because that was the one on the reservation. I would not recommend it!
4.0 OkayJun 20 2021
Pros: When I picked up the car I was handed the keys. The car was not looked over or explained to me the basic 101 of how the car works. Perhaps you're short handed or the guy that handed me the keys was just plan lazy
2.0 MediocreJun 19 2021
Pros: Drop off lane was blockedCons: Keep your words. Don't lie
10.0 ExcellentJun 10 2021
Pros: The guy at the counter was super helpful he even gave me the choice of several different cars. The car was very niceCons: Nothing really
10.0 ExcellentJun 6 2021
Pros: Friendly staff made process very easyCons: Did not know there would be a $200 deposit fee
2.0 MediocreMay 29 2021
Pros: Not much at all. When I checked in, the Jeep Grand Cherokee I reserved was not available, but a Subaru was what they had to offer. I told them I did not want the added insurance coverage and they told me total charge would be $111. I did not look at my receipt until later and saw that they tacked on $60 for insurance. When I received my final receipt emailed the next day after turning the car in, it was for $301.74, not the $121 I was quoted for on Kayak. I am out an additional $180 for a one-day car rental.Cons: The service was not good, really got the run around. My wife is in a wheelchair and they couldn't tell me on the phone if the shuttle to the airport was handicap accessible. Also, they didn't have the car I reserved and they blatantly overcharged me for a one-day rental.
2.0 MediocreMay 27 2021
Cons: There was no car in their inventory to pickup. I don’t know who is going to reimburse me since they had no car to give me
2.0 MediocreMay 18 2021
Cons: Getting the car I expected and prepaid for, instead I was forced to downgrade at same price. Manager said my only option was to pay hundreds more for a nicer car. Unbelievable, first and last time using Sixt. Reserved a Chrysler 300, but my choice was Toyota Camry or Nissan Altima. No comparison , what a scam!!
10.0 ExcellentMay 14 2021
Pros: Bile was great at the counter.

Cons: Ended up putting us down to return car where I didn't select. Had to make new reservation on the spot and cost $300 more. Very disappointed!
10.0 ExcellentJun 13 2021
Cons: The rep at the counter during pickup overcharged my rental and if I hadn’t paid attention and had her corrected I would have paid triple the rental total .. and then she mentioned that it was due to my error that when I changed my credit card swipe .
8.0 ExcellentJun 7 2021
Pros: Drop off was super easy, free upgrade to an SUV was nice (although not as easy to drive as a sedan).Cons: Pick up had an hour-ish long line at midnight! Which was especially bad since our flight had already been delayed 3 hours. Only other gripe is that the navigation app for the touchscreen had not been installed, which made it pretty useless.

4.0 OkayMay 12 2021
Pros: Pick up AWFUL! Drop off was easy.Cons: PICKUP: It took 2 1/2 hours to get my car due to the LONG line at the Budget rental at SEATAC. Budget was the ONLY car rental place to have a line. Too few people working the desk (it varied from 1 to at most 3 people). Plus, a long time per each customer (averaged 15 to 20 minutes each. I timed it)
2.0 MediocreApr 28 2021
Pros: yes, but the car sent messages that that the engine needed service. We were in the middle of our trip from Seatle to Processor Washington. We were in the middle of public forests. We continued at slower speeds onward to Processor for my brother's funeral. It made a bad situation even worse. We feared being stranded and missing the funeral. We finally reached Processor. We contacted Avis/Budget at the Pasco airport. We drover out to Pasco and exchanged cars. We eventually returned their car to the Seattle airport' At this time I am not sure what will be the total charges for both cars. I did not need this additional grief due to Avis/Budget renting us a defective, not serviced, automobileCons: A well serviced reliable automobile Francis Giles Schroeder 4329 Saint Cloud Way Cleves, Ohio 45002 513-451-3410

6.0 GoodJun 14 2021
Pros: staff was friendly and drop off was easyCons: the line at the check in counter in Seattle was bad. It took almost 2 hours in line to get my rental.
2.0 MediocreJun 11 2021
Pros: Understaffed for a holiday weekend. Annoyed when after standing in line for over an hour that we kept hearing person after person get upgraded to an Suv. I had paid for a standard sized SUV. Rep didn't even tell me what kind of car I was going to get as she seemed upset when I did not purchase extra insurance and to gas pre-pay. We got a crappy Kia. We asked for something else and she said that is all they had left. Overall sour experience.

2.0 MediocreJun 6 2021
Pros: The Thrifty Staff was great. I will NEVER book anything through Kayak or Priceline again. Absolute terrible customer service the multiple times I called and it was absolutely ridiculous that we could not change our reservation and leave 2 days early and pay more money. Most ridiculous service I have ever used and will never use again.

8.0 ExcellentMay 30 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly, and got a great rate by not renting from the airport. Drop off was easy.Cons: The pickup/drop off location left something to be desired. 6th floor of a dark, old, parking garage that wasn’t especially well-lit. The main entrance was closed due to COVID and we had to use the back door to the elevator lobby. I could see someone, such as a young female alone, feeling quite uneasy about the location.
2.0 MediocreMay 25 2021
Pros: We were upgraded to a larger car at a decent price which we very much appreciated as we were traveling in a group. Staff at check in and check out were very friendly and helpful.Cons: We were given a car that made a terrible grinding noise when the brakes were applied. It was very worrisome given that we were driving through mountainous regions and the terrain was very steep. We tried getting ahold of Thrifty for 3 days to complain about the car, sometimes waiting on hold for an hour and a half at a time, before we were finally able to reach a representative who could help us. During those 3 days, we estimated that we spent collectively 7-8 hours on hold trying to reach someone who could help. It was a non-stop barrage of automated systems, transfers and holds. Very frustrating to deal with when you are on vacation. They ended up bringing us a new car which was much appreciated but we would have preferred not to waste so much time on our trip worrying about whether the brakes in our rental were going to give out.

2.0 MediocreJun 16 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Overcharged by $200
2.0 MediocreJun 8 2021
Pros: Staff was rude and pushy. Flight was delayed and I couldn’t pickup until close to closing time. Then they tried to overcharge me and refused to honor original price unless I turned the car in early.Cons: Honoring my request to change vehicle locations.
2.0 MediocreMay 24 2021
Pros: FineCons: The wait at the counter to actually get a car was over 45 minutes. There were far too few agents working.
6.0 GoodMay 4 2021
Cons: Charged an additional day, despite facility not being open or accepting contactless drop off.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 2 2021
Pros: The car was excellent.Cons: If they have a well training clerk at the front desk reciving the cars
6.0 GoodDec 15 2020
Pros: Everything on the app went wellCons: I had no windshield washer fluid in the car, window had tire shine on it so no matter how much I cleaned it during my travel from Seattle to Spokane I literally couldn’t see and the pass was horrible with snow so that didn’t make my trip any easier I don’t usually comment or leave a negative review ever! Like ever but thought I should say something about it. Sorry if I offended anyone but I use cars pretty often
6.8 GoodOct 12 2020
Cons: Car outside looked clean but inside was not.
10.0 ExcellentJul 12 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly. Pick up and drop off was very convenientCons: Nothing in particular
4.4 OkayAug 30 2019
Pros: One way drop off was easy and Walla Walla staff was great.Cons: Long line. Condescending, snippy desk agent couldn’t be bothered. We reserved a car we knew we’d fit and she insisted we wouldn’t and aggressively unsold a different category. Turns out it was the same size with an even smaller trunk. For more $$ of course.
7.2 GoodAug 26 2019
Cons: Representative made inappropriate and offensive comments about additional driver option related to marital status.

8.0 ExcellentJan 4 2020
Pros: Staff was nice.Cons: The cars weren’t spotless, but that wasn’t a problem for me. We did get have to exchange cars due to a tire issue. We called ahead and discussed it with E-Z Rent-a-Car. They said they made a note on our profile and there would be no problem coming back and exchanging the car. When we got there, they didn’t seem to know what we were talking about and we spend a little longer than necessary due to some confusion about the exchange. Worked out in the end.
4.0 OkayDec 29 2019
Pros: Easy drop offCons: Car smelled terribly of smoke, super long wait at pickup while the only staff st the desk was chatting with the only customer in front of me, stating “I’m taking my time to see if a car comes in for you”. I had already reserved and paid online, to “save time” the website said.
6.8 GoodDec 28 2019
Cons: Vehicle had been smoked in, did not realize until I turned on the air after departing the rental facility.
5.2 OkaySep 26 2019
Cons: They did not have my car available for me when I arrived to pick it up. That is the first time that has ever happened to me in 30 plus years of renting cars. They clearly did not want to upgrade me to a larger vehicle. Eventually my car became available.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2019
Pros: Drop off quick and easy.Cons: Staff both at check in and return were not rude but not friendly. Acted like overworked or not enjoying their job. I can deal with that but nicer if more conversion.
7.2 GoodSep 17 2019
Cons: Check in agent was extremely rude
10.0 ExcellentAug 18 2019
It was great experiencePros: The car was nice, clean, and nothing wrong with it. The pick up and drop off processes were very quick.Cons: Nothing
4.8 OkayAug 15 2019
Pros: Nothing after getting the wrong carCons: I chose EZ particularly because they showed and offered a Toyota RAV4 which is the car i use at home and it accommodates my injured hip and knee. Instead, i was given a Subaru something which is a brand well suited to littler people but which will not let get the seat back far enough to drive safely
2.0 MediocreAug 9 2019
Pros: Staff was nice enough, he didn't have any cars to rent people...Cons: Two hours after my reservation they still didn't have a car for me. Isn't the point of a reservation to hold the car? I had to Uber and pay twice as much as i wanted to spend on travel. I was hesitant about renting from a name like EZ car and I should've trusted my gut
10.0 ExcellentAug 8 2019
Pros: Fast check-in, check-out and the car was great. The experience met my expectations of a reliable rental car company.

Cons: Everything, I never got the car I rented, I had to rent from Avis. Payless didn’t have any personal working. Could not pick up the vehicle, had to scramble to get to a meeting and rent another vehicle. When I tried to call Payless and remedy the problem, the wait time was over an hour to talk, I have yet to talk to a person to remedy the problem.
10.0 ExcellentApr 25 2021
Pros: The desk agent was friendly and helpful and provided a clean, new car.
2.0 MediocreApr 19 2021
Pros: StaffCons: Signed up for a pick up truck to help load up things for my brothers wedding for the weekend. To my disappointment, they said they did not have any available. When we walked to the car, we saw so many pick up trucks that were in the parking garage. I then had another incident where I locked the keys in my car. I called the number to contact their roadside assistance. It rang for 2 minutes and then hung up. I’d drop doing business with these guys if I were you

2.0 MediocreJun 21 2021
Pros: The car operated without issues for 4 days.Cons: It literally took 52 minutes from arrival before driving away in my car!! The quoted price did not include tax of 17%!!! This was a total bait and switch operation compared to other companies and even other Hertz sites, and I would have been better off renting a car from downtown Seattle. But they (which is YOU, Kayak) advertised the price without tax. I would NEVER use Kayak again to rent a car. Period, even if you begged. This Hertz office is literally operating out of an alley-way behind an amazon building. The car smelled so strongly of marijuana that our EYES WERE BURNING! This Hertz facility is a complete scam. Yes, I struggled greatly to avoid using curse words in this review.
10.0 ExcellentJun 19 2021
Pros: Staff friendly and made experience so easyCons: The pickup location was not as well-kempt as the other Hertz locations I have been to
1.9 HorribleJun 17 2021
4.0 OkayJun 16 2021
Pros: If ask airport rentals, why would Kayak bring up renting a car 30 miles away from the airport, and not make that clear? I am pissed and let downCons: As above.
2.0 MediocreJun 16 2021
Cons: The location was closed so i was unable to pick-up my car.
4.0 OkayJun 15 2021
Pros: Staff at Boing Field made everything easyCons: I asked for a rental at SeaTaac but I found out at the time of the rental the car was at Boeing Field
2.0 MediocreJun 14 2021
Pros: I received rental confirmation night before scheduled pick up of rental. Arrived at hertz day of rental and hertz said my reservation was canceled but could not tell me by who. Definitely was not use. Our money was never refunded but it was canceled? Then they got very rude and would not rent us a car. They had “no cars to rent”.
6.0 GoodJun 14 2021
Pros: The staff was accommodating based on the situation they were thrown intoCons: Basically the facility in north Seattle only had 10 cars for the day , but corporate booked them for 40 cars. Our group was given a huge car that neither of us had ever driven before. And it was nerve wracking driving in the mountains. Also , they didn’t give us a full tank of gas.
2.0 MediocreJun 13 2021
Pros: Nothing. Terrible experienceCons: Where to start. First, I had to pay more than expected for this car. Next, they had two people working at the counter and a dozen people waiting. Next, they gave me a smoker's car. My Asthma meant that I had to use my rescue inhaler every time I drove, so we barely drove it. I called, literally, 10 times to get a new car, but as hung up on twice, and was only able to talk to a human 3 times, all of which they instantly transferred me to emergency services, where I never was able to talk to a human. I tried the TEXT feature, and explained my situation and received no response after hours of waiting. The car was also dirty on the inside, specifically the front doors. You've lost a lifelong customer.

Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Was upgraded to a hybrid.Cons: Wait time was a bit long, and it’s always pricey
6.0 GoodJun 13 2021
Cons: They didn’t have the vehicle we were supposed to get and the sales lady was trying to up sell us everything she could. It took forever to get our vehicle-two groups got there’s in the time it took us to get ours.
6.0 GoodJun 10 2021
Pros: Staff at counter was friendly, efficient and helpful. Got thru line of waiting customers in short period of time.Cons: Did not like the fact that I got a car with over 67,000 miles and with a fair share of cosmetic damage!
8.0 ExcellentJun 10 2021
Cons: The car’s fan made a buzzing noise that grew louder intermittently with AC on. Very annoying at times.
4.0 OkayMay 31 2021
Cons: Dishonest about price. Slow pick-up process as they try to up-sell you on unecessary items using half-truths and scare tactics.
10.0 ExcellentMay 30 2021
Pros: Staff was helpful and kind. Easy processCons: Nothing
10.0 ExcellentMay 27 2021
Cons: All costs and deposits should be identified prior to booking.
8.0 ExcellentMay 26 2021
Pros: Pick up was inconvenient as there had been a bomb scare the night before. This meant that I had to come back the next day to pick up the car, but they were unable to refund me a day of my rental due to a third party being involved in the booking.Cons: a newer car with more seating comfort options
4.0 OkayMay 20 2021
Pros: Drop off fairly easy... except for the surprise bill at the end. Of course, customers are rushing to catch a plane, so there isn't time to debate with them on the almost $300 increase in cost.Cons: Double talk at pick-up, harassed about upgrades, long, painful check-in process, etc. - then charged for an upgrade even though I didn't ask for one. I had an online booking showing ~$600 rental cost. Fox doesn't show the airport fees, taxes, etc. The final bill at pick-up was almost $900. While the standard rental car companies appear to be slightly more expensive upfront, they are not dishonest, show transparency, and are speedy and efficient. I promise to never rent from Fox again. Period.
4.0 OkayMay 13 2021
Pros: Hybrid carCons: Car was beat up. Had clearly been in a couple of fender benders, and the whole left side of car was covered in yellow paint (presumably from someone hitting a pole). Staff didn’t seem to care about the quality of car they were sending out

10.0 ExcellentAug 3 2017

6.8 GoodDec 25 2015
Pros: The car was excellent but not at the airport where I expected it to be. I had to pay for a cab ($40) to get downtown and get stuck in horrible Seattle traffic leaving the rental center. The people at National were great and helpful but the entire experience should have been better
