Cons:We rented from LAX and dropped off at Ontario airport. At both locations it was impossible to find the rental office. There are no instructions online about the locations at all. For the LAX location you have to take an airport shuttle to an off-airport location and then the rental company will come pick you up. For the Ontario airport location, they are located inside a hotel, but there is no mention of this anywhere. Also, the first car they gave us had a warning light on for low tire pressure and when we said that we wanted another car, one that didn't need maintenance, they tried to tell us the that warning light was on because they service their own vehicles. This doesn't make any sense. Service at the LAX location was also very slow. All told with finding the office, getting a replacement car, etc. it took us about 2.5 hours to actually rent the car. This was a total waste of a morning on a very short trip to LA.Reviewed Dec 16 2015

Cons:The outside of the car had multiple spots of bird poop on it. The inside smelled bad and had an air freshner card stuck in the a/c vent (possible trying to mask the smell). The car itself was the cheapest, worse rental car I've ever seen. It had hand crank windows.....which I didn't even know they made any more. The car shook on the freeway at 65 mph. No one was present at the desk when we returned the car, so we had to wait around for someone to return. I will NEVER rent from this location again!Reviewed Apr 25 2018

Substandard car at a third-rate pricePros:The price was half of that of their competitors, but I soon found that was a double-edged sword.Cons:***RENTER BEWARE*** When I had arrived to pick up my car, the attendant didn't know what car I was going to be driving, seemed to have difficulty finding the keys, and asked me for my paperwork to rent the car as the online records didn't seem to be updating. The attendant asked if I wanted to buy all of their insurance products (there is about 5), and I said that I had purchased insurance through the online provider. The attendant requested confirmation from my online purchase, which should of been on file online but apparently not. I am glad that I had printed out everything or I don't know what I would have done. Once the car was pulled around we did a damage assessment to log any damage to the car. This was a lengthy process because the car was beat up. It hadn't been cleaned from what appeared to be the last few rentals. The windows were dirty and hard to see out of, the hubcaps were damaged one was completely broken off, tar spots were splattered on the paint and some windows, had multiple dents, the rear bumper had been smashed in making the trunk hard to open or close, the interior was messy with stains on the seats and the transmission appeared to need servicing as it was slipping (the car had over 60,000 miles on it and a service sticker showed it hadn't been serviced in over 20,000 miles). To boot, the attendant didn't want to log all of the damage to the car and I had to point everything out. I know how the insurance claims work with these companies, and they weren't about to use my comp and collision to fix their beater rental. The rental company is inside a hotel and isn't easily found. While inside the hotel you didn't know if you were renting with economy or allied or if they were the same company. I really wouldn't have taken the car if I wasn't in a dire need to meet a client. I will never rent with this company again. Let me repeat, I will never rent with this company ever again!Reviewed Jan 26 2018

HIDDEN FEESPros:the vehicle was nicer that I thought it would be.Cons:There were about $70 in fees that were not clearly stated or identified on the website. I would have chose a different car and company if I would have known. Unfortunately I didn't find out until I was already in the pick-up process. This is a horrible business practice that leaves customers dissatisfied and in my case, I will never rent from Economy car rental or use Kayak again.Reviewed May 8 2017
