Pros:

The employees at drop off verbally say one thing but once the billing statement is email there is something else.

KAYAK

Pros:

The line to pick up was very long. Then the only card I had was my debit cards. Even though I had a photo of my Mastercard they said they could not use it so I did not get to rent a car. Budget will take debit cards so I thought I would use Budget again, They were booked, which is why my son rented a car for me at Thrifty online using his card. Live and learn.

Cons:

The pick up line at the airport was very long. Thrifty could take debit cards,

Pros:

I was able to get a car same day

Cons:

Just about everything. First car had rock damage to the windshield and I was asked to sign off on the existing damage to the car prior to inspecting. The entire facility is trashy and dirty. The worst part is the EZpass charge. Because of the EZpass charge alone, I will not rent from advantage again

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was quick and painless. I think we waited about 25 minutes for the van to be ready at the Newark airport when we went to pick it up. We had a Chrysler Pacifica van and it ran well, got over 25 mpg driving fast, and the AC worked good.

Cons:

On the downside, the third seat was elecric folding and it did not work properly. We had to manually push the cushions down to get a flat floor. For a long trip, the front seats in the Pacifica van are strictly mediocre, and the 2nd row seats are awful - like a padded jump seat. Too many gadgets. I will reserve final judgement on the billing for when we get the credit card statement.

Mar 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was spacious, the pickup representative was very kind despite our delay, as a van (which was reserved and needed for moving space) wasn't at first available and we had to wait. The car ran nicely and was very clean.

Cons:

Transparency of cost. We just received our final charge and were surprised by a $150 cleaning fee, despite the car being perfectly clean upon returning it. This was not disclosed prior to our dropoff and really pushed the cost of this rental over the line for us financially. Had we known of so many surprise fees, we would not have booked at this cost.

My reservation was essentially cancelled with an hour to go before I was to get it. I was told they didn’t have a car so I had to scramble find another vehicle. I had to go to the airport & pay more for the same size vehicle & deal with an associate who seemed to be mad at the world. And then after everything was totaled, the rental cost an additional ~ $150. An original ~$240 rental became a -$320 rental with an additional $150 is other charges = $480.

They would not pick us up at airport - causing us to spend money on a cab. When we arrived they were RUDE, asked if they would be driving us back to airport when we returned the car - they said no causing a round trip cab ride of $43.00. We decided not to use their service. Don't like dealing with rude people

Had to change rental, with completely new rate (twice the price) for the exact same class of vehicles. This was due to the limit in range you can take certain cars from Payless. I would have taken my business elsewhere.
