Cons: I was quoted a $20 per day price for a week's rental but when I needed to drop it off after a day, I was CHARGED FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK. They specifically said that there would be no pre-payment charge, and my insurance company would not reimburse me for a Dollar rental, so I had to return. Feel REALLY RIPPED OFF!

Pros: The guy at the counter worked hard to get me a car as soon as possible.
Cons: I figured if I requested a car at 1pm that I'd have a car at 1pm not at 3:30pm

will not use dollar again
Pros: Pick up was ok the guy was nice, he did kinda change his attitude when we didn't want the extra insurance. There was no one in the parking lot causing us to drive around because the lot was full! Needless to say we will not use dollar again.
Cons: The main thing was the windshield wipers were so bad that it was almost impossible to drive in the rain, extremely dangerous at night!!!!! We were tempted to take the car back but really didn't have time on our short trip. The maintenance was past due said right on the windshield and the transmission was horrible! Not to mention the Fiat 500 is in general a horrible car to even use as a rental!

Cons: This office is understaffed and not supported well by their national counterparts. I was up in Idaho on vacation andI ended up in the hospital. It was not an injury/illness that came about from vacationing. I could not return the car. They told me they do not have any staff that could come pick it up even tho I was willing to pay, I could not add on another driver to drop it off, and they offered no solution other than if I died, they could then do what they normally do in those circumstances. I had to drive it back to them to return their car, rather than fly back from where I fell ill so as to get back to the doctors and hospital who could help me. Never use this office, it should be shut down, and I will never use dollar/thrifty/ or hertz (their corporate owner) again!

Bad customer service
Pros: The price was good
Cons: The rep gave me an upgrade, that I requested, but wouldn't clarify the increase in price, even though I asked multiple times. When she showed me the total price, it was way too much and I told her I couldn't afford it, and she gave me a nasty attitude. Then she ran my card incorrectly and told me she couldn't run it again for 24 hrs, so I had to go to a different rental counter

Cons: Lengthy Check In/Bought Insurance through a 3rd party through the Dollar website?/Received a giant mini van after reserving a generic 5 seater?
Dec 10 2015
Pros: Car was nice.
Cons: When I checked in, the gentleman at the counter asked if I had insurance. I told him I had purchased insurance when I rented the car online. He said, "It's not showing up on here, so it must not have gone through. So you did want insurance, right?" I told him yes. He asked no more questions gave me the bill. I am obviously too trusting because the next day I looked at the bill and they had charged me for every type of insurance available. The insurance cost $180 for two days. It's absolutely ludicrous. I was taken advantage of. He never asked me any questions, what I wanted, etc. Just added it all.

No renting with Debit Card
Cons: I had a debit card that was also marked as a Visa and my driver's license. I was told it was company policy to require another form of ID. Those were my forms of ID and payment, so I wasn't able to rent from them. Apparently their sister agency, Thrifty, has the same policy.
I ended up renting from Hertz and had a wonderful experience.

Cons: I was unable to rent a car from them because I did not have 2 forms of picture ID

BE WARY OF DOLLAR!
Pros: I was taken advantage of by Dollar car rental. 1/2 mile from my return of the car, I stopped and filled my vehicle up with gas at the Texaco. I then drove the 1/2 mile to the unmanned drop off. After parking the car, I went inside the Boise ID airport to the Dollar rental counter. I dropped off the keys. Because I did not have a gas receipt for the full tank I bought 4 minutes before, Dollar charged me a penalty in excess of $20. This is outrageous! The gas station was the closest one that existed to the airport. When I picked up the car, I was not told of the receipt requirement! I have rented cars for decades and have not been required to present a receipt. THIS WAS ROBBERY.

Cons: Yeh, it's a poor review coz I get to review someone else's rental.

Outrageous lack of service, HELP
Cons: I arrived at the airport in Boise, ID after midnight. I had reserved a car online. There was one clerk on duty on holiday Friday night.
He informed me that I had 150 free miles, which was not stated online.
He then informed me that my car was in the "over flow" lot and when I hiked to the lot I could push the red button on the key and the HORN WOULD HONK. I am 74 years old and had two large suitcases to drag with me. It was a long way to the DARK lot and a long way to the far end of it where I found the car. I was hoping the honking would attract police but no such luck. I figured out how to use the essentials to start and drive off.
