Pros:

The first car smelled like smoked and I was able to quickly get another car.

Cons:

I called a couple of days before mentioning I wouldn’t be able to pick up the car till the next day. As I wouldn’t be able to park the rental anywhere for the night. I asked if the charges would be the same and the person I spoke to said they would be able to fix the charges once I got there. The person I spoke to said they would make a note of it. Once I get to Hertz the person who is present says there isn’t a note. The person isn’t pleasant as I try to figure out what is going on. I am charged the same amount as if I picked it up the night prior. Overall experience at hertz lacked customer service.

Cons:

Hertz employees not wearing masks, car was dirty on the outside and I was not convinced that it had been properly sanitized and disinfected prior to me driving it. I brought my own Lysol and wipes and had to clean it down in order to give myself some peace of mind.

Pros:

The car was sound and safe.

Cons:

When when I called a Alexandria, VA Hertz I told the gentlemen I was running late (about 11:40) I expressed my concerns for being charged an extra day and fees. He said I would not as long as it’s dropped offs. He mentioned he would be in the office Sunday. In addition, I called the Hertz toll free customer service while at the drop-off location to further explain. They only recommended dropping off the keys and recording the mileage on the rental agreement. My main concern is being charged additional days and fees.

Pros:

We were delighted with the vehicle we received! It was clean, well-maintained, had lots of amenities, and an outstanding deal for the price! The staff were polite, friendly, answered our questions, and went out of their way to ensure the rental arrangements fit our needs. We will DEFINITELY be recommending Budget to everyone and using Budget again in the future. Thank you!

Feb 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Having never rented a car I wasn't sure of the whole process or cost but it ended up working out great! I was able to tap into a special so the price was right and the car (compact/small 4-door) was as expected. The only thing that concerned me was no one walked me out to the car to do a once-over. I noticed damage on the exterior and dirt on the interior so I promptly took photos to cover myself. Overall the car was good on gas mileage and drop-off was seamless (easier than anticipated). Would definitely rent from Budget again :)

Cons:

No walk-through/once-over of the car upon . Damage to exterior. Dirty interior. Needed a car wash. No auxiliary input.

Pros:

Enterprise had great customer service

Cons:

The Nissan versa was a horrible car for a long roadtrip and not what I wanted. Handling was very poor on the highway as the whole car shakes. The cruise control did not work and there was greasy fingerprints on the inside of windshield. Very disappointed with the car and I reserved a midrange Mitsubishi and all they had was Nissan versas. I plan on upgrading to a better vehicle for the trip back

Pros:

The guy at the desk was friendly and nice.

Cons:

The car was not ready when I got there. Had to wait 30 minutes to be able to go anywhere (others were waiting too). I had a work meeting to get to and thankfully I had booked the car early so I was able to still make it in time but it was unnecessarily stressful to have to wait.

Avis didn't have a car for me. They also didn't really make an effort to let me know and were rather unapologetic about it. A terrible experience.

At drop-off I was pleasantly surprised to be offered a ride to the train station about a mile away to avoid the walk.

Top tips for renting a car in Alexandria

  • With the Potomac River to the east, many regional parks and golf courses scattered around the city, and the George Washington Memorial, Alexandria has plenty to discover – and there is no easier way to do it than by car. Don’t depend on public transport and seize the opportunity to explore Alexandria in your own time and pace by renting a car for your stay in the city. Washington, DC is also only a 20-minute ride away and is always worth a visit.
  • Reagan National Airport is the closest airport to Alexandria and is only 10 minutes from the city center. The airport sports rental car agencies right on its grounds, which makes continuing your journey invariably easier. Pick up a car directly from there and start your time in Alexandria without any hassle.
  • Although Virginia has a subtropical climate, there can be sleet and ice in the northern parts of Virginia, like Alexandria, in the winter. The city has a higher-than-usual rate of rainfall per year and, during the winter months, roads can become treacherous due to the mix of rain and snow. If there is ice or snow, ground markings can be covered and snow piles up on either sides, making the roads narrower. Drive accordingly and adjust your speed to enjoy a safe ride.
  • Rush hour usually hits Alexandria between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 8 pm. Especially roads to and from Washington can face increased traffic, like the I-295 or the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Try to avoid starting your trips during these times for a smoother driving experience and acquaint yourself with alternative routes beforehand, or rent a GPS system with your car.

  • Book your rental car in Alexandria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
