Sep 12 2017
Pros: The car was comfortable, clean and had good mileage. It managed going from 2,000 feet to 5,000 feet easily and had good pick up. i liked the key less entry once I got used to it.
Cons: The sensor for windshield fluid came on saying that the fluid was low. Unfortunately, i had no idea how to add more. Then the low tire pressure sensor came on and i had no air pressure gauge in the car, nor did i know how much pressure to put in the tires. i bought a tire air pressure guide and was not reimbursed for it.

Wouldn't take my debit card
Pros: We had booked a pickup to carry some cargo. Their policy is no debit cards to rent pickups. We could have rented a minivan or car but neither could carry our cargo. We declined and went to U-Haul instead.
Cons: I don't like that I am penalized for Not owning a credit card. I could pay cash for the truck but can't rent it with my debit card....doesn't make sense.

Aug 28 2017
Pros: The gentleman at the Paschal location was very helpful.
Cons: When I sent an email to tell what my issue was the problem, I received an email back. And in that email I was supposed to hear from the company again to fix the problem, but I did not hear from them until after I had to take care of it myself. I didn't hear back from the company until over 24 hours past when I needed the car. I was left hanging ...

Jul 20 2017
Pros: Everything was better then expected. Service, value and especially the car.
Cons: A wallet was left in the car. Trying to call the local Alamo was impossible. I talked to 2 people form a call center and Alamo has a nice website to handle lost and found and the wallet was recovered, but I left work to drive to the airport to speak for all of 30 seconds to the counter agent to find that they had the wallet. Big waste of my time. Over the next 5 weeks I will be rent cars 3 times and the Enterprise family of rentals will not get my business.

Poor Customer Service
Pros: The car was very clean
Cons: 1. The online ordering process was suppose to allow me to pick up the car via KIOSK but it didn't. The information I was given was wrong online. 2. There is no parking for picking up the vehicles, the person dropping me off and picking me up had to continue to drive around and around the airport. 3. I did not sign up for CDW as I have my own full coverage. When I dropped the vehicle off, they tried to charge me an extra $75. I explained to the attendant what had happened and he said I had to pay it and I signed for it but my copy did not have my signature. I asked him to show it to me. He went and looked and found there wasn't a signature. He did not admit this but went straight to the register and asked how I wanted to pay. I gave him my card and he told me, "I just want to let you know that I am not charging you out of courtesy but I could because I know you agreed to pay it in the beginning and even though I couldn't find your signature, its a legal and binding contract". He was very rude.

Cons: No complaints
Jun 18 2017
Pros: Car was clean and ran well. Customer service at pickup was excellent. Cost of week rental was excellent, and was easy to return early when didn't need for as long as initially thought. They did not have the requested small car, but gave an upgrade without cost so we would not be delayed.
Cons: We signed up for second driver but were not told the cost to do so!

Alamo Tucson -Phoenix
Pros: Excellent, courteous customer service. The line was short and we were able to check out very fast. The desk staff was friendly and got us quickly and efficiently through the paperwork part. We had 4 similar vehicles of different brands to chose from. I also really appreciate they don't try to push unnecessary insurance on customers!
Cons: The price could have been better. We paid more because we dropped the vehicle at a another location. I wish companies could reduce their rates for this option. Navigation should be included at no extra cost! The car was great and in excellent condition overall, however, the upholstery was a light color and had a lot of non-removable stains, given the low mileage of the car. This vehicle seemed to have suffered some serious abuse by previous renters. Can't blame the rental company for that.

Car seemed to have mechanical issues, all else was
Pros: Facilities, service, cleanliness, etc were all industry standard and quite acceptable.
Cons: Our vehicle seemed to have some minor mechanical issues which we reported upon our return. Might be time to take that one out of the rental pool (based on age/body style and bugs).

Dented and scratched
Pros: The pick up and drop off were easy and quick. This was good for time and frustration but there was no walk around inspection at either pick up or drop off. While quick and easy, if the company causes me of the dents and scratches, it will not be such and good thing.
Cons: The deal was for an economy car special. When I arrived, I was given a F150 4X4 pick up. It was a powerful clean truck but I did not need a big vehicle, or the gas milage. Also, the truck was scratched and dented. As forcefully and the counter person pushed to extra insurance coverage, I felt the damaged truck was given to me so they could get me, and my insurance to pay for it. If I am wrong, the only detractor was driving around in a damaged vehicle.

Denied rental over a debit card and accused of att
Cons: I did not like being accused of fraud and having a manager insinuating I was a car thief. Renting a smart car for three days to travel between Tucson and Phoenix does not seem to be a likely profile for thieves but I wouldn't know. All in front of my 13 yo son. Producing a printed itinerary is not a substantial security measure. Because my itinerary did not fit a profile I was rudely left to find other options and then during another attempt to rent from enterprise the same manager appeared from behind a door and interrupted my transaction and told the employee I was attempting to defraud them. Not true. I will NEVER EVER RENT FROM ALAMO OR THE SISTER COMPANIES EVER AND I WILL DO MY DAMNDEST TO RELATE MY EXPERIENCE TO OTHERS. Alamo is lucky not to be facing litigation about the suggestion by your management that I was attempting to obtain goods or services under false pretenses with the intention of theft or malfeasance.

Lovely Car Rental Experience
Pros: Great car Friendly service
Cons: Nobody at the service desk when we arrived Nobody "checked out the car" so damages could not get recorded It was next to impossible to get someone on the phone to advise Alamo of existing scratches on the car
