10.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Pros: Friendly staff and great drop off locationCons: More cars at Hilton Head airport
2.0 MediocreApr 6 2021
Pros: Nothing! Flight was delayed, so I was not able to pick up my car before the rental counter closed. When I went to pick up the car the next day, they would not honor the price I was giving through Kayak, the price changed from $285 to $900. I tried multiple times the day I was supposed to arrive to notify them that I would be late, but the phone was disconnected. When I asked the counter person, they said that the bill wasn't paid, and that's why I could not get through!Cons: Head Hilton rental counter is extremely unprofessional, and I would not consider it a "business setting". Personal at the counter and cleaning/service were not in uniform. Counter said that she was going to call someone about my price change, but was definitely not on the phone long enough to talk with someone. Probably because the phone was still offline, from the bill not being paid!
10.0 ExcellentMar 22 2021
Pros: Customer service was very friendly and helpfulCons: Directions on dropping car off
10.0 ExcellentDec 18 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful, quick, and friendly. Probably the best of any car rental counter I've ever used!Cons: Hilton Head Island airport parking lot is free and unattended, but signage isn't great. I took the long way around to exit the lot. Of course, there "the long way around" is an extra 200 feet! :-) That is not the fault of Budget.
10.0 ExcellentOct 21 2020
Pros: drop off was very easy in Charlotte. Someone was waiting to scan my car as I pulled up. I also got a bigger car than I expected because they didn't have any compacts, so that was a nice surprise!
4.8 OkaySep 30 2020
Pros: The car was nice for valueCons: I had made a reservation 3 months prior to our trip when we arrived at the airport the customer service lady said it would be about 5 minutes after 30 minutes of waiting we went to the calendar to see how much longer it would be and the lady at the counter was very rude and then a loud voice stating that this is a small airport and we were going to have to wait it was then another 20 minutes that we finally got our rental car. When we finally got the car and I looked at the paperwork it said the gas gauge was full and there was only three quarters of a tank in the car
8.4 ExcellentSep 22 2020
Pros: yesCons: I couldn't figure out how to open the trunk
3.2 MediocreSep 6 2020
Cons: car was dirty/dented. Logistics to parking lot were vagye
10.0 ExcellentDec 25 2019
Pros: Staff was super kind and patient with me. The pick up and drop off were both seemless.Cons: Kind of hard to improve on a perfect experience
9.6 ExcellentNov 22 2019

2.0 MediocreApr 17 2021
Pros: Nothing since they did not have a car for usCons: A car
8.0 ExcellentApr 11 2021
Pros: Confirmed my rental 3 days in advance as I had made a change in time of pick up - not a problem at all. Got to location at appropriate time, paperwork was easy as ever to do, owner went around to get my car - I had been "Upgraded"!!!!!!!! ( I am sure he did not have my original grade there on site = Nissan Rogue.). I was given a Ford Edge = nice! Included was Sirius radio!. Car was great. Could have been cleaned inside a little better, but hard to keep up with all the pine pollen that had started flying around. Thanx for the nice ride Hertz!
2.0 MediocreJul 14 2020
Cons: Wring car, didnt care, no discount, then the crappy wrong car had NO GAS in the tank. Took it back next day ans went with Avis. Now i am still being billed for Hertz.
2.0 MediocreJul 6 2020
Cons: I was told there was no car available for me and that I could wait to see if they had anything the next day. Then they were shocked i wanted to cancel the reservation. I had planned a cross country trip and needed to leave early in the morning the next day. So I was left scrambling to find another car from another business. Luckily the Budget counter had something for me and they were able to help me out. Now I know to go to Budget instead of Hertz in the future.
9.6 ExcellentOct 23 2019
Cons: Nothing
10.0 ExcellentNov 7 2018
Pros: Very quick and easy drop off in Hilton Head. Loved the car!
7.6 GoodApr 6 2018
I learned NEVER TO PREPAY for a carPros: Diane from the airport Savannah/Hilton Head was awesome! She helped me figure out an option when I realized that I reserved the rental car through the wrong airport. She helped me remain calm and found us a minivan that would accommodate my large family & our luggage.Cons: Unfortunately, I learned that if you accidentally order a car and pay in advance..and accidentally book the wrong airport (there are 2 Hilton head labeled airports), you cannot transfer any of the prepaid car to the new location. I paid in full for 5 days and Hertz said it's a locked in deal so they wouldn't honor even a discount. So, I had to pay for 2 vehicles on my trip. Completely, not cool.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 13 2018
Pros: Good experience and will make reservations through kayak and hertz in the future.
7.2 GoodNov 6 2017
Hi 2 TPAPros: Price and ease of car.Cons: Car interior was full of stains....was surprised of the condition.
10.0 ExcellentOct 29 2017
Pros: A fantastic experience!

10.0 ExcellentMar 20 2017
Cons: First time to the airport so it was a little tough to find.
2.0 MediocreMar 16 2017
TerribleCons: I made a reservation and specifically asked there was a car available on the phone while speaking to a person, not the computer, but when I arrived to pick my car up there was not a car there!!! When I questioned the attendant, he said there was nothing he could do for me. Consequently, I ended up spending over $100.00 more than I should have because another rental (Hertz) said they only had a van. I believe this should be Alamo'so responsibility. I also believe the attendant could have been much more helpful! He at least could have checked with all the other rental companies to see if there was a cheaper option. I would really like a response!!!
7.6 GoodMar 12 2017
Young Driver FeeCons: I am 24 so I accept that I needed to pay an extra fee. However, when I booked, I correctly input my age. I was not charged the fee until I actually picked up the car which I found frustrating. Also, there was no cruise control.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 27 2017
Easy to pick ip, friendly service, great pricePros: The pickup was quick and easy. Nice car. Very easy
4.8 OkayJan 6 2017
HHI Airport rental car nightmare.Cons: Huge line. Booked few hours earlier but they had no record of my booking. Had to wait for clerk to call her manager, leave a voice mail, then wait for him to call back in order to get a car. Didn't get the car I wanted. Didn't get a receipt, temporary registration, or any documentation from Alamo or Kayak. Initially told car had a full tank but was only half full. The clerk also told me the insurance I bought through Allianz didn't cover damage to the car despite that being incorrect, then she charged be for Alamo insurance without my consent which I had to call to get a charge back a few days later to correct. Terrible experience.

10.0 ExcellentApr 9 2019
Pros: Staff was so friendly in Beaufort! Both our pick-up driver (who was right on time!) and our agent who assisted us at the office. And drop-off was super-easy at the Savannah airport.Cons: Had a little wait to get out car - but it was brand-new, so they had to remove the plastic!
7.6 GoodMar 10 2019
Pros: Pick up was seamless, staff were very kind and helpful.Cons: I scheduled my drop off for 1pm on Sat. When I picked up, no one told me the office closed at noon on Saturdays and I was required to leave the vehicle and use the drop off keys box.
8.8 ExcellentApr 3 2017
QuickPros: How quick the drop off process was.Cons: The person at the front desk was quick and cordial if not a bit under enthusiastic to be working compared to his counterparts in Charleston.

8.0 ExcellentSep 5 2016
Good but a hasselPros: I liked the overall service. The two reps I had contact with was very polite and helpful.Cons: When I got there I didn't know I had to bring 2 utility bills and pay a 150 refundable deposit for the rental. I asked the rep why I didn't know.. She said that most third-party sites don't have regulations. I had to go back home and retrieve all these items.. Which was a hassel to do being that I have only one bill in my name at my residence. This needs to change because you guys will miss out on money.. As long as the person has the money.. Let them rent the car. I later found out this rule is for debit card users only.

FAIL!Pros: Nothing.Cons: The Thrifty agent was not there, so I was stuck without a car and I was trying to make a flight at a different airport. I had to rent a more expensive car at Hertz in order to make the flight. This was awful, and I am going to contact Thrifty reimburse me.
4.0 OkayApr 7 2017
Not happy with carPros: Car ready when I arrive. Quick return.Cons: There was no cruise control. This was not stated to me at check-in. Yet the agent asked where I am going. I was traveling over 800 miles in 2 days. The agent asked me about other things. The brakes pulled a little. Gas mileage on an small car was not great. There was a refundable $200 deposit that was never told to me before I booked the car. They had my credit card. Why do they hold $200. I am not a new driver. Had better experience with other car rental companies in the past.
