ConfusionPros:The people working at Advantage were friendly.Cons:The signage at the airport is misleading. It states that there are Rental Car Shuttle busses as well as a County Coach (or something like that) at the same stop. If it weren't for the Coach bus driver noticing the confused look on my face and informing me the his bus was the shuttle for Rental Cars too I never would have known. Then when I go to pick up the car I've reserved and gotten insurance for the guy behind the counter points to s sign with all of these prices and all of these apparently random letters like CFC, PIT, & CDW next to the prices and asks me which one I want. I ask him if that's different kind of insurance and he just shrugged. He wouldn't answer my question. I was in a bit of a rush (which I'm sure they count on) so I just chose the "basic package" then he tried to pressure me into buying a toll package. If I hadn't been to Fort Lauderdale before and known I wasn't leaving an area without tolls I would have bought that too. I'm directed to the car pick up site. Given my keys and sent on my merry way. When I get to the gate to leave the rental area the woman working the gate asks for my rental papers. They're in the trunk. I have to stop the engine. Exit the car and retrieve the papers to prove to the gate agent that I have indeed rented this car and she inspects it for damage all the while complaining about the rental agents never telling the renters about this part of the process. Upon returning the vehicle the signage is somewhat misleading again. No one was at the return kiosk and the sign for the shuttle to the airport reads "terminal 3 only" luckily I was going to terminal 3, but it stopped at terminal 2 and I can only assume 4 also. All in all better signage and better communication is needed on the part of Advantage, Fort Lauderdale airport and the employees of Advantage Car Rentals. By the way, when all was said and done, my $92 reserved car rental cost me $203 after they added: Energy Surcharge Collision Damage Waiver (I'm assuming that was the basic package I agreed to) RSP Concession Fee State Tax CFC and Florida SurchargeReviewed Apr 27 2016

Cons:The car was pretty stained and old. It had been vacuumed but it was pretty run down. The person who checked me in sold me a sun pass because he lead me to believe that I would need it for Miaimi-Dade county but I went as far as Miami Shores and never needed it so I feel he gave me misinformation in order to sell me the service, which I had purchased based on his advice. The lady at the car rental return for Advantage was rude and abrasive not only to me but other customers as well.Reviewed Apr 4 2016

Pros:The car was roomy.Cons:The counter was closed at 12:30am. We had to go to another agency counter and stood in line for over thirty minutes. I had to return another day because there was no windshield wiper fluid, which made it difficult to see on the highway after trying to clean the windshield unaware the reservoir was empty. It took fifteen minutes to get them to put some fluid in when I returned during the rental period. The ceiling was stained with awful brown spots.Reviewed May 30 2017

Pros:Fuel milage of the diesel vehicle although that is not what I rented.Cons:First vehicle I had was full of mold. Irritated my eyes and throat so bad had to return it after an hour. Second identical 2014 Passat DIESEL was cleaner inside, no mold, but on second day every idiot light illuminated. I didn't have time to return it so just drove it that way. A rental car shouldn't be 5 years old with 40k miles on it. Never again Advantage, never again!Reviewed Oct 8 2019

Very Misleading and ScammyCons:They try to scam you in everyway possible starting from their gas charge which they say is cheaper at 8.99per gallon(opted to full the tank myself even though they kept saying are "you sure?" and ending with their bogus manadatory daily toll charge. Booked on Kayak for $63 they ended up trying to charge me $218.00. Also vehicle was not clean and non of the DC ports worked. Be warned!!!Reviewed May 9 2016

Pros:I made the booking and showed up at the Advantage desk 30 minutes later. The told me that it took hours for an online booking to get onto their system and so there was no car available. And then they waved me away, lazily said "oh maybe company X might have cars." Generally gave the impression that they couldn't care less. I will avoid them in future.Reviewed May 6 2016

No cancellation and no refund PRICELINE SUCKSPros:Nothing. A waste of timeCons:PRICELINE is crooked and did not honor my request to not charge me even though I canceled and never touched the auto. “READ THE SMALL PRINT” the say, go elsewhere and forget PRICELINE for anything.
