The whole process was easy in the midst of Coronavirus. I also noted extra steps being taken to disinfect and clean.

Smooth as silk No hiccups No unnecessary delayMy model Toyota apparently wasn't designed for comfort. No matter how we adjusted driver's seat, it wouldn't fit right.

10.0 ExcellentApr 12 2021
Pickup was wonderfully easy; upgraded from intermediate to a large SUV. Drop off through Dropbox at airport very simple.Car could have been cleaner inside and out.
2.0 MediocreApr 1 2021
The drop off process was bad. The Hertz location was suppose to open at 7:30am but nobody was there. There was no drop box to leave keys. I was late for work waiting for someone to show up - they arrived to open the location at 8:15am.Customers shouldn't be waiting to drop off a vehicle. All locations need a way to drop off keys. It was unacceptable that I was forced to put my day on hold and be late for work because nobody was at the location to receive keys.

Friendly serviceDidn’t get the vehicle I selected, a jeep Cherokee. Needed a oil change so it would keep alarming signs at me.

Staff was courteous.Explanation of full tank pre pay option. They easily fixed it upon return of the car and were helpful.

Staff was great and check in and out was easy! Car worked fine -Offer local pick up and drop off. Enterprise is my normal go-to for that feature alone.
4.4 OkayJun 8 2018
Was not treated wellI tend to see the best in people... but it was hard in this case. One of the two employees there was so rude I could hardly believe it. Honestly, I would never rent from this location solely because of the way I was treated. I can't imagine there haven't been similar complaints in the past.

Great serviceGreat car and great customer service. Fast to get the car. Very friendly.
6.8 GoodMar 7 2018
Good service, smelly carThe service, especially on return, was very friendly, quick and efficient. The car was a Hyundai, which was fine.The car smelled. I mentioned this and was told they didn’t have equipment to fully clean the inside. Just wipes and deodorizing spray. So, they can’t really properly clean the seats, which were dirty. As was the side panel and cup area on the driver side.

1.9 HorribleAug 29 2021
We got a Nissan Pathfinder that had three flat tires within the first 40 miles. One had a slow leak, one of the tires was so balled it could not be fixed. We held on the phone with roadside assistance for over 30 minutes. This car was totally unsafe for anyone to have driven and this car was not checked prior to our renting it. We had to take the car to the nearest rental 40 miles away and change cars and so thankful to have been out of this totally unsafe vehicle. We were told by the rental place…..” we are not mechanics , we just get them in and rent them out”. How about looking at the tires next time???

No CarI showed up at the local Budget office and was told: " we don't have any cars" even though the lot was full "those are customers cars" which i don't believe all were . The Service Rep basically told me to go suck a lemon ; didn't offer to call another office or any other effort even though I was the only customer in the office.

2.0 MediocreMay 18 2017
No car available at my arrival.To be fair, I requested a car at the end of day car (6:00 pm closing). I arrived at 5:15PM. My car was not available. Agent was counting on a return car for me that was due to arrive at 6:00PM. That was cutting it a little close.No car in my category or higher available at this location upon my arrival. I called and arranged a car through another car rental company. They came a picked me up and had no problem filling my request for a full size car.

They had candy at the front deskI didn't actually get a car because they were not up-front about what I needed to bring to get the car and I was turned away. I wasted $26 on Lyft to get me there and back. This place is a horror show.
3.6 MediocreJul 31 2019
We could not pick up the car they do not rent us any car if we don't have full coverage insurance. Also, they called us in the same day of the pick-up not before.Not to trust
2.0 MediocreMar 27 2019
The place was NOT OPEN for business. A note left by s previous customer on the door was the same. No one there. No one answers the phone. It looks like a front.
2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2019
Nothing to like.I booked a car for the next day, Monday, and when I arrived with a driver and everything, the company was closed. It was during normal operation hours, but the door was locked and no one was in sight. No one answered on any of the phone numbers. I had to rent a car somewhere else last minute.
2.0 MediocreOct 30 2018
Stopped before it started...Nothing.I never got a car. I was called the day before I left on my trip and was told they "overbooked" and they didn't have a car for me after all. I was offered a car from the airport at triple the rate. Not great service. Don't know whose fault this was (online service vs. actual rental car company) but this was a complete bust and a real slap in the face as a first time user of Kayak and this other company. Executive Rentals blamed the online service but it doesn't matter to me whose at fault. I ended up with NO CAR...
2.4 MediocreOct 9 2018
Dirty unmaintained classThe rental duration is doneThe car was dirty, you can’t travel out of state for the rental price and they charged $20 extra per day, the viper was not working, the oil change was over due.

Car rental insurance in Birmingham

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Birmingham car rental.
