TOTAL RIP-OFF - DO NOT RENT FROM THEMPros:Rental Nov 8 from Newark. First they gave me a small car that smelled like cigarettes with a gas tank that was not completely full. Not much to like. Then they hit me with a $30 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE FOR TOLL CHARGES!! NOTHING to LIKE.Cons:At the counter, the clerk asked me if I wanted to pay for an ez-pass. He said I would pay one charge up front and not have to stop to pay any tolls. He knew I was taking the car from Newark airport in NJ to JFK airport in NY, and was well aware of the route and the tolls. On November 28 I received a notice to pay $17.15 in TOLLS PLUS an outrageous $30 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE. This was NEVER explained to me at the time of the rental. I was told ALL tolls were covered by my purchase of the EZ-Pass. How about I DIDN'T LIKE ANY OF THIS. TOTAL RIP OFF. DON'T PATRONIZE DOLLAR.Reviewed Dec 26 2016

Dislike, likePros:Clean car , very well maintained . Customer service at check in and check out very pleasant great guys receiving the car outside just as wellCons:Trying to purchase a last min protection collision plan for the car was a Hastle seemed impossible , spent over an hour speaking with both dollar customer service and the collision protection company none could help me . Thanks to my pass experiences manage to navigate the site that was giving me problems . I got to purchase the collision plan . PAYING over 18$ a day for EZ pass is ridiculous amount to nearly 100$ total cost . Which I only used 3 times keeping a cost of around 14$ . Was no very happy . I could’ve borrow an Ez-pass from anyone of my family members. I will warn everyone of this . Thought it will be a convenience . They were good at extending my drop off time by a few hours, at a small fee it was but easyReviewed Sep 6 2018

Pros:The vehicle was new and clean, had good fuel efficiency, and performed well.Cons:The pick-up experience was terrible. The dollar counter had a very long and slow line. The staff requested redundant personal information that had already been entered into the online rental system. This wasted a lot of time. No other rental car companies had a line because they were able to process their rentals very fast. Many other companies simply have the keys and vehicle ready for quick pick-up and the rental agreement is provided via email. Dollar needs to do better before I decide to use them again.Reviewed Jul 3 2021

Dirty car, bad costumer service and very high fees for the ez passCons:The agent was in a rush, and treated everyone poorly. On top of that my rental took a while and when I finally got the car, it was extremely dirty and looked like it just came out of a swap. The agent simply said they couldn’t do anything about it.Reviewed Jan 2 2018

Check in problemsPros:The check in process was so long and should have been a lot quicker. They did not have enough agents and it took over 30 minutes for each person to check in. The wait was 45 minutes and then another 30 minutes with a gent then 20 minutes to get out once we got in the carCons:The ridiculously long time to check inReviewed Jun 19 2018

Cons:They said that none of my credit cards (American, French, Italian) were valid as security so I could not rent a car. This has never happened to me in my life (I am a 55 year-old businessman who has travelled the world for 35 years on business). I had paid $28 on pre-insurance which I lost. I won't be back to Dollar, this was a ridiculous performanceReviewed Sep 19 2016

Price estimates are way under what you will actually payPros:The car was clean and did not break down.Cons:Our fees more than doubled between the estimated cost and actual cost after the rental. And throughout this process, we received conflicting information from multiple Dollar representatives over the phone.Reviewed Sep 4 2018
