Pros: Great friendly professional staff. Hyundai Elantra was almost new, spotless, cleaned and sanitized. Fantastic gas mileage. Not to mention a great rental rate!
Cons: Only drawback was the usual ridiculous taxes the local government tacked on. (Four different taxes!!!)
Pros: drop off was easy. car was good value
Cons: pickup was terrible. they kept trying to shove their insurance down your throat. i have Amex which covers collision and my own liability. Wanted proof of insurance for which my state doesn't issue an insurance card and even when I showed them on the internet, they still wanted a $1000 deposit or buy their insurance. They should disclose this on website and not in the microfine print. also should disclose about the Sun Pass for tolls on website and have a way to set up the insurance when you make a reservation. also; the shuttle location in Ft. Lauderdale could be better, tough to find
Cons: This is the second time I've tried to rent from them and both times have been issues. This time I couldn't rent because I didn't have my car insurance card with me and they wanted to charge me $81 for liability insurance, which was more than the car rental. At no time did they tell me they needed that information until i was there to pick up the car. This could have been downloaded to them prior to my arrival. i did not carry this information on my trip. It seemed shady to make additional money. I saw other customers being charged for miscellaneous items that were very odd to me. Wouldn't ever rent from them again.
Cons: Changed price 3 times from what was quoted on the internet
Pros: Staff was very nice
Cons: Reservation service was trash. Ended up not needing the insurance provided and kayak didnt refund me correctly.
Pros: It doesn't even matter. The hidden fees ruined everything I could possibly have liked about the car.
Cons: Dishonest sales team did not communicate the need of a SunPass to me.
Pros: The car worked well. Dropping off car went smooth. They shuttled us off at the airport very quickly.
Cons: Picking up the car was like being in Afghanistan, it was a intimidating environment, it was sad to see so many people be so upset at Economy's car requirement of having to show proof of insurance if not they would charge you their own insurance. It was a very long wait because customers would get really upset when realizing the proof of insurance requirement and the cost of their insurance. I was with my 8-year old daughter and it was late at night and it was difficult to see my daughter have to wait to get our car. The person who worked with us, his name was Alex, was excellent. I think he saw me and my daughter wait so long that he came from somewhere else to help us.
Pros: I ended up getting charged an extra $40 since I didn’t pay with a credit card. I used a debit credit card. Apparently, page 5 in the terms would have told me that. The guy checking me in was pretty rude about it too. I felt mislead. I asked if I could give him a credit card then but he said it was too late.
Cons: If he could have not charged me the extra $40 and been kinder.
Cons: Procedure to puck up a vehicle way to slow. There were 2 people at front of us and took as an hour to get the vehicle
Cons: Great place if you are looking for a ride just to take you places, nothing fancy or flashy. They have a shuttle from the airport to their place, don't forget to tip. Overall a great experience with them I would rent with them again, you can't beat their price.
Pros: Drop off was smooth.
Cons: More staff. It took me at least 45 minutes to get a car. It was one person in there and five people standing in line.
Cons: I am 24 years old. We were not disclosed of any up charge for being 25. Additional, the car got a flat tire, not due to a hole, but to a slow leak. This concerns me that the employees of Economy do not routinely check their vehicles for the safety of their clients. The extra insurance I paid for said they would assist me in putting on a new tire, but that I would have to purchase a new tire for the vehicle. I used my friends AAA to put on the spare instead. I did not have a good experience with Economy and will not be using them in the future.
