They were closed when my plane arrived (on time as scheduled at 8:30pm). I never got a car. They were unapologetic that not informing me there would be no airport pickup or way to get the car I reserved left me stranded and scrambling to find a rental car last minute. I will Never do business with Dollar again. I suggest removing this Dollar store from your lists so this does not happen to anyone else.

shuttle pick up at airport was poorly signed so I waited a while at the wrong place. Dollar pick up is in a completely different location to all the other rental car companies but they don't tell you. Fortunately, the Thrifty shuttle driver told me. when I picked up the car, they just pointed in the general direction of where it was parked and I had to search for it. I then had to go back to the counter as it had a scratch. there was not much help checking out. at the return, there was only 1 agent helping people pick up and drop off.

Pros:

The pick up was fine but when I returned the vehicle Dollar charged me double!

Cons:

You could help by getting them to honor their original quote. If I get no help from you, I'll never use your service again.

Pros:

Arrived for my 6pm pickup at 6:02PM to find lights off, no one around and store locked up. Was hung up on twice when calling their customer service to try to get the pickup rescheduled for a time that fit the companies schedule better.

Cons:

An idea would be to not schedule a pickup for 6PM if you are closing the door at 6PM. Or maybe a check in call for a renter who has a late rental to make sure their flight wasnt delayed or provide an alternate pickup for them.

Pros:

Ease at which to rent and drop-off car.

Cons:

The car was not cleaned out completely. Found food in the car from previous renter. I was told I would receive a credit for returning the car a day early from the staff at Hertz, but when I received the final bill TWO weeks later...there was no credit. I called customer service and they told me I wouldn't get a credit. I wish Hertz would stand by what I was originally told, don't just tell me something and pass the blame on their staff. I also had to fill the tires up the entire time I had the car...because slow leaks. I understand that things happen, but stand by your word and accept responsibility do whats right. I will probably rent somewhere else in the future, unless things are made right.

Pros:

Essentially a brand new Ford Escape with most of the gingerbread.

Cons:

When we had to exchange the car in Colorado due to a flat tire, the workers had asked if we had the form acknowledging the cracked windshield. There had been no form filled out at pickup and nothing put in the system, so the workers had to call original pickup location to verify cracked windshield.
