10.0 ExcellentApr 13 2021
Pros: Drop off was quick and convenient at Santa Barbara airport. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.Cons: Rental car pickup was a long walk from the airport. When we got there, the Dollar booth was closed, and we had to go to another location.
2.0 MediocreDec 29 2020
Cons: Because of COVID I was unable to travel and Priceline would not work with me to move the date of pick up. I live in Los Angeles and we are in lockdown. These are unforeseen circumstances and you would think a large company like Priceline would concede and let me reschedule to a future date. They did not work with me. I lost $400 in this transaction and will never use them again.
8.0 ExcellentDec 14 2020
Cons: I was asked which car we would want, and was not told there would be an upgrade charge at the time.

5.6 OkayFeb 17 2020
Pros: The initial attendant was very helpful.Cons: The car was not ready in time and the attendant who took over was not helpful. He simply told me he had “no cars” to satisfy my reservation. It’s only when prompted that he realized he could give us another car in a different class. We had waited almost an hour.

8.0 ExcellentMay 10 2021
Pros: Staff, vehicle and drop off were spectacular.Cons: Pick up process was a bit cumbersome. The workers did their best but their computer systems were running slowly so it was about 20 minutes from saying hello to being able to walk to rental car. Once again, not the fault of the workers/customer service staff.
10.0 ExcellentMay 1 2021
Pros: Ease of transection and outstanding value
6.0 GoodJan 28 2021
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: The car was filthy upon pickup. Cleanliness should be extra important these days because of covid. It didn’t even seem like the car was cleaned at all before I got it. There were crumbs everywhere and grubby fingerprints on the glass.
8.0 ExcellentDec 29 2020
Cons: Both the pick up and drop off suffered from lack of Payless staff. We had to go to the Avis counter for pickup, and there was no person present when we returned the car, and had cleared out and were about to head to the terminal when someone finally showed up, but without any payless identification
9.6 ExcellentJul 5 2020
Pros: Ease of picking-up and dropping-off.Cons: I couldn't see the sign and was a little lost.
9.2 ExcellentJun 20 2020
Pros: The whole process was well streamlined.Cons: I would've been less confused at the empty counter if someone had told me to go to Avis counter instead of waiting at an empty and lonely (LOL) Payless counter. After about 8 min, the person at Fox counter told me I can go to Avis counter.
10.0 ExcellentJan 28 2020
Pros: It went very well. The car had less than a thousand miles so was a pleasure to drive!Cons: Burbank airport does not make car rental easy for older people like me and I'm in pretty good shape for 75. The walking is too long even with the moving walkways and almost every time one or more moving walk ways are not working. One time one of the rental company staff offered me a ride to the terminal. The rental experience was great, though.
10.0 ExcellentJan 28 2020
Pros: good pick up and drop offCons: pricing

Pros: Very helpful staff, efficient.

2.0 MediocreApr 24 2021
Pros: no the staff was not friendly, I called the rental place and advise car lights on over heating. Was advise drive back I did not feel safe driving car was told it is up to me to return car.Cons: Not to have rented from Fox
6.0 GoodApr 18 2021
Cons: car could be cleaner
6.0 GoodApr 12 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: It required two stops from the airport to get to the car rental. It took forever to get the car — and we were the only ones there. They have an ancient system for paperwork I haven’t seen used for decades. The car itself was older, with high mileage (70,000) and dings and scratches all over.
8.0 ExcellentApr 8 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly at ticket counter, but difficult for staff at the car sight to come out of the booth to help. The car was old, and wobbled when I drove. I did not feel safe. Unlike the other agencies where they do not care about scratches in the car, this agency had marked off all the scratches. This made me uneasy that if there was a scratch I missed upon checkout I would be accounted for. The checkout garage was dark and difficult to see.Cons: Safety of car.
8.0 ExcellentApr 5 2021
Cons: Took way to long to find the car I was assigned at the counter....
2.0 MediocreApr 4 2021
Pros: The staff is not kind and or helpful at this location on my experienceCons: Listen to your customers. travelers sometimes are not familiar with the information that may be general knowledge to agents.
2.0 MediocreMar 31 2021
Pros: Nothing. They didn’t hold my reservationCons: Hold a reservation. Especially if it’s paid in full.
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2021
Cons: Although we showed up to pick up the car within the three hour window, they had already given our car away, which causing us to scramble to find a suitable car with another agency, which cost us several hundred dollars more.
4.0 OkayMar 23 2021
Cons: - Clean the car better - make sure the maintenance is done my rental had low tire pressure - I was given a car that was rear ended & I couldn’t get a different car because there was no more options - the car inside was stained . Considering we are in a pandemic , the cars can be a lot cleaner - stop adding extra charges to the final price

8.8 ExcellentApr 11 2017
Pros: Quick service at desk. Easy access to vehicle. Clean vehicle. Terrific value, moneywise.Cons: Long walk from terminal to desk, with moving walkways inoperative that day.
2.0 MediocreApr 11 2017
My reservation was sent to the wrong locationCons: They were all sold out of cars and I had to walk to another facility to book another reservation.
4.4 OkayApr 2 2017
Poor Customer ServiceCons: I wanted to extend my rental. The credit card I had on file was lost, and discontinued. They would not take a new credit card over the phone. They said this was for my own protection, and prevents fraudulent car rentals. However the car has already been rented... I had already proven my identity when I picked it up. I was not renting a new car. Unless someone had stolen my car, credit card, and was conscientious enough to call Alamo to extend the rental... there is no reason to worry about fraud. Additionally other large companies take credit card information over the phone. To say it is not a secure method is lazy, and hinders Alamo from providing a better customer experience. The customer service rep agreed that the policy did not make sense in my case, but that she could do nothing about it, it was simply "the policy." To me, then, that is the definition of bad policy. I was forced to return to the airport, out of my way, to prove for the second time I am who I am. Just a terrible customer service experience. I will not be renting with Alamo or affiliated Alamo brands in the future.
10.0 ExcellentMar 21 2017
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off as well as excellent value.
5.6 OkayMar 15 2017
Cons: I had to pay two times for the insurance. At the end, it cost me around $60 a day, where it should have cost me only $35 per day. Just make sure that they will not charge you twice for the insurance!!
10.0 ExcellentMar 13 2017
Pros: Great price and quick service, just a great experience
10.0 ExcellentMar 7 2017
Excellent valuePros: I choose "Special Desl" as you don't know what you'll get for the special low price. I ended up wirh a compact SUV which was prefect for my winter road trip up to Lake Tahoe and back !
10.0 ExcellentMar 7 2017
Exactly what I wanted.Pros: Onsite, fast pickup and drop off. Even an upgrade. What else could you ask for?
9.6 ExcellentMar 1 2017
Great customer service!Pros: When I made my car rental and flight reservations, I did not realize that they is a John Wayne and a Bob Hope airports, one in Burbank and other in Orange County. So I mixed both up! I landed in John Wayne airport to get my car rental and did not realize it was in Burbank, The gentleman at the desk so helpful and understanding, he tried his best to honor my car rental rate which was for Burbank and not Orange County. I was able to return the car at Burbank and Alamo honored the same rate without any additional fees. I NEVER, write comments/feedbacks, but I have so very blown away at the level of service I received from Alamo car rental I had to. Despite my oversight with the wrong locations, most everyone I spoke with and or interacted with was so helpful, friendly and professional. Please look into the names of this people, as they deserve recognition. Thank you!Cons: When I returned the car at Burbank Alamo, the female at the desk was so unfriendly and down right rude. She was so resistant to honor the rate/price, even after I explained to her that I had called Alamo and spoken with them. Finally she reluctantly adjusted and credited me back to my card, then handed me a new receipt and said "here". She did not ruin my awesome experience I had with Alamo, but she should definitely be looked into.
6.4 GoodFeb 27 2017
Troubles All AroundPros: * The car was clean and filled with gas.Cons: * Finding the car rental place at Burbank Airport if you are not coming in for a flight is near impossible! My husband and I went around twice before we found out that there was no parking for non-rental cars and he had to drop me off at the Alamo rental place and then leave. The signs (or lack of them) made getting to my rental place on time stressful and we ended up being 15 minutes late. *Once we got onto the freeway, the car started making the high pitch sound from the window at 70 mph. We were going the speed of traffic to Chico on the 5 freeway and this loud high pitch sound made me want to turn on the radio and set it to high to drown out the sound. There must be a seal broken or something on the window but what puzzled me is that the car was relatively new with only 13, 500 miles. Need less to say, the 7 hours there and back to Chico was a very noisy annoying drive. * When we were on the streets of Chico, the car made a ratting sound. It sounded like it was on the dashboard and the rattling continue for the whole trip when the car was driven at low speeds (20 - 40 mph).

8.4 ExcellentOct 15 2020
Pros: Very friendly staffCons: I ordered a Cadillac or similar and was offered a Volvo SUV which is not my style. I ordered a luxury car. I was then offered a compact sports sedan, which ended up being a BMW 3 series. It was nice but I am a big person and do not like SUVs and order luxury cars for the very large size and extra room. The BMW 3 series is a very nice car but much smaller inside than the Cadillac or Lincoln I'm usually ordering. I did not receive the car class size I ordered. I was not unhappy but the experience was not great either.
5.6 OkayJul 8 2019
Pros: Friendly staff when we finally arrived to correct Enterprise location. It did save us money, but was a hassle we weren't prepared for.Cons: When I called Enterprise to confirm the car reservation, I asked about pickup, since this was not the airport location. I was told it was 3.6 miles from airport and there would be a free shuttle to pick us up. Turned out to NOT be true, and almost 8 mile Lyft ride to get there.
10.0 ExcellentJan 5 2019
Above and beyondPros: The staff was extremely accommodating. They were very helpful even though our flight was delayed and we arrived after the office had closed. They still provided us with the hard to find van when we arrived a day late, they honored our original reservation price and provided an uber to get back to the airport upon return. Very courteous and helpful staff and management.
10.0 ExcellentMay 31 2017
good experiencePros: Friendly and fast service. They picked me up and dropped me off at the airport. The car rental from Enterprise on the web was actually the price I paid!!!
10.0 ExcellentMay 10 2017
Pros: I didn't realize that they were not at the airport but the airport location coordinated with them to pick us up.Cons: My car was not ready although I reserved it a month in advance. The did not have the size I had reserved & had to give me a much larger vehicle (fortunately at the same price).
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2017
TERRIBLE SERVICECons: Terrible customer service and rates. They were out of economy cars so they gave us a suv but charged us for the suv at a rate of 90/day! My reservation was for 10/day. They wouldnt match better prices even when I showed them my reservation on my phone or showed them better deals via expedia and kayak. Never again.
4.8 OkayApr 11 2017
Pros: Great price. $10/dayCons: They would not take debit card payment unless you had a flight or train ticket. And the6 would not run the debit card as a credit card even though they could have done that.

7.2 GoodNov 9 2019
Cons: BUR desk was understaffed. FAT staff was, well, lazy. At drop-off an Avis guy Ian paid to stand there and tell you you have to record your own mileage and fuel and walk in to the terminal to check out and get a receipt. The lady at the desk seemed put out that I already had the mileage and fuel so she couldn’t send me back to get it. Not a good look.
8.0 ExcellentAug 19 2019
Pros: Staff at pickup were really helpful. Drop off employee was abrupt and very unfriendly.Cons: Car windows on inside were dirty and some trash from previous rental was still in the car. Disappointing. Also cost to drop off at different location was very steep. Dissapointed.
9.2 ExcellentAug 1 2018
Pros: We thought we had rented at the airport but it was actually at a nearby rental center. Avis airport personnel were not helpful and pushed a hard sell for products we didn't need. When we arrived (by taxi) at the correct spot, the man behind the counter was extremely helpful and pleasant. He checked us in and got us on our way quickly.

Pros: The staff was very helpful and made the pickup and drop-off process easyCons: My rental was for a one-way, cross-country trip. While I was on the highway, one of the tires blew due to being incredibly worn and completely bald. One of the other tires was also completely bald, and I'm very luck it didn't blow as well. Hertz knew how far I was driving, but regardless, they should never have rented that car until the tires were checked and replaced.

That's fine, but then the other signs were misleading

3.6 MediocreJun 26 2020
Pros: Pick up was easyCons: The car was dirty. ( insides were covered in dust and had a horrible musty smell) I needed to extend the length of the rental, but the automated phone line kept hanging up or disconnecting. I called the local office and they tried to charge me a completely different amount. I went to the office to show my receipt and he looked it up and said it was a computer malfunction. I then had to wait nearly 40 minutes to get my car. I will consider looking for other rental companies next time.
10.0 ExcellentNov 12 2019

I put LAX as the starting location and Kayak changed it to Burbank.Cons: I put LAX as the starting location and Kayak changed it to Burbank so I did not get my deal. I paid double. Also Budget did not tell me this, the price came up double and I had to ask why. Terrible customer service. I feel bait and switched! I'm very unhappy with this.
2.0 MediocreMar 23 2018
Cons: I did not like looking for a car that wasn't there in the pouring rain three seperate times because they didn't assign me a car that was on the lot. I didn't like people who walked away and did not help, unless helping means confirming that a Kia is not a Chevy and a Jaguar in not a Hyundai. Thanks to the man who just got me a car and changed my reservation.

4.0 OkayApr 18 2021
Cons: My main complaint is with the billing process. It was written in my confirmation that "Thrify charged the total cost of this reservation ($85.25) to your credit card today." However, when I picked up the car I was charged an additional $21.17 in miscellaneous services charges and taxes. I have rented cars and purchased flights through Kayak for many years and have never before experienced this "bait and switch" technique. I don't know if this scam was the fault of Kayak, Thrifty or CarRentals.com but suffice to say, I won't be using any of these companies again. If I can't trust you to quote me a fair price, then we can't do business with each other.
