Best place to rent a vehiclePros: Renting a vehicle with Alamo was very simple and straightforward. I rented through the website and was able to easily compare rates. The Alamo agents were knowledgeable and so friendly! When I called to modify my reservation the day I was supposed to return the vehicle, the agent was helpful and quickly confirmed my changes. Alamo had a number of vehicles for me to choose from. The one I chose was clean and in great condition. I will never rent from anyone else! Thanks guysCons: N/A

2.0 MediocreMay 26 2021
Pros: I got off my flight and the counter was closed. A super nice agent with another company tried to find my keys and contract which were no where to be found. I am still working on a refund.Cons: You could have been open or at least had my stuff ready so someone else could have helped me.
10.0 ExcellentApr 20 2021
Pros: Check-in and check-out was very fast and efficient. We were upgraded to an SUV for free, which was a nice surprise. Overall, very pain-free experience.Cons: Nothing needed changed.
2.0 MediocreDec 29 2020
Pros: NothingCons: We arrived at 800p which was scheduled and they were closed. We could not get another car because everything was sold out. Had to pay for ubers and hotel
8.4 ExcellentOct 6 2020
Cons: It was the Ford Edge. Hard to lock up. Alarm went off! Alarm would not set up - spent 30 minutes trying to figure this one out. Finally after closing the rear opening on the SUV for the third time, the alarm was able to be set. So, it wasn’t Hertz, it was Ford who had a problem. I would NEVER buy a Ford Edge.
10.0 ExcellentMar 27 2020
Pros: Saint John the desk attendant, when I picked up The car. He went above and beyond for me! He even brought the vehicle curb side for me! I’ve never experienced wonderful service like I did on Wednesday March 25 @ 5:00PM in Fargo, ND with Herttz Rental! Thank you s million times
10.0 ExcellentJul 11 2019
Pros: Staff was amazing, especially Julie. There was a bit of a smoke smell in the car and she was able to handle any issues that might have come up.
10.0 ExcellentJun 11 2019
Pros: Easy, convenient, great rate.
10.0 ExcellentMay 25 2019
Pros: Staff was very friendly. The pick-up and drop-off were close to the rental counter and baggage claim.Cons: Just fine.
10.0 ExcellentAug 8 2018
Van rentalPros: Picking up the vehicle was fast and easy. Everyone at the service counter was friendly and answered any questions I had, plus they explained everything. Turning the vehicle in, was painless! Very easy. Van was very clean and easy to drive, very comfortable for the long road trip.
6.4 GoodJul 2 2018
Pros: I liked the free upgrade from a Chevy spark to a Buick lacrosse.Cons: I didn't like the fact when I went to refill the car with gas before dropping off the car, the gas cap door would not open on the car. I read the Manuel and googled instructions on how to open it and now it would open. The car rental return location was closed so I could not explain to them, I called the road side service but they where of no asstince. So now I'm stuck paying 6.99 a gallon for Hertz to refill it for me.

2.0 MediocreSep 30 2017
The rental car company was not located at the airport.Pros: Nothing. I refused to rent a vehicle from them - I went to hertz.Cons: The airport's rates were substantially higher than the out of airport location. Initially, I was told the airport would honor my quote, but then all of a sudden the representative said she could not get me a vehicle at the agreed upon rate. In my opinion, they colluded to avoid paying Kayak's reduced offfer

Make sure you are renting from the right location!Pros: The service was extremely friendly, upgraded us several categories for a nominal charge. The agent was super helpful in trying to save us the money on the airport surcharges.Cons: I booked for Fargo, and it was the downtown location instead of the airport. The agent was super helpful and suggested Uber to get us to the right location and avoid the 18% surcharge that the airport had. However, that was convenient.

2.0 MediocreMay 4 2017
I was misleadPros: I was put in a Payless Car - an affiliate of Budget and it was barely better than a lawn mower. It wa considered a mid-size, but wa about the size of a Cooper Mini. It made all sorts of noise and worried about its upkeep as we traveled thru a National Park. There was nothing good to say.Cons: It was awful. I had to debate with the attendent about a price break.
5.2 OkayNov 21 2016
Cons: Heater insufficient, pretty "basic" car for full size price, not very comfortable. Person at check in/out desk either new or incompetent, didn't seem to know what he was doing, had to ask for help from other counter.
10.0 ExcellentAug 29 2016
Will have a good experience as long as you let thePros: We called the local number as soon as we found out that we missed our connection flight in Chicago. They gave us the option to pick up at the airport but had to add the airport fees to our original price that was given. But it saved us alot of headaches because of arriving at the airport late that day. It was much easier being able to drop the car off at the airport as well. Just a word of warning that if you get a car from an off site car rental place in Fargo, you may have to take a taxi to get to the car rental place. AND they close normally at 6 pm. So plan ahead to receive a better experience
9.2 ExcellentAug 24 2016
Pros: the quoted price was wrong - it was 3 times more than offered by you! I think the guy thought we were our of our minds even though we had it straight off your site. didn't matter - we paid the asking price and all was well.

2.0 MediocreJul 31 2018
Fargo vs FARCons: Careful when you book a car to pick up at the airport and the company books it in town miles from the airport.
5.2 OkayJan 7 2017
Customer service was good and not good at the samePros: The fellow at the airport offered to get the car for me, although that simply meant starting it as the lot is really close to the door.Cons: There were two problems. One was simply uncomfortable, once accelerating up to 60 mph, the vehicle shook continuously (for 300 miles). Obviously it needed an alignment. There was also a lot of ice stuck behind the tires and elsewhere on the vehicle and it kept coming off in big chunks. This did not make for happy fellow motorists; one actually gave me the finger. The other problem was simply dangerous and foreseeable. The weather was a balmy -10 degrees which means someone cleaning the vehicle should pay attention to what they are doing. There was frost covering all the windows completely and it was impossible to get off because it was heavy and ON THE INSIDE. If you have ever tried to scrap the inside of the car window, you would understand. I have lived in the north country for 50 years, driving for 35, and Never have I had frost build up on the inside of a window. I couldn't see much at all on the drive home and spend 1/2 an hour the next morning trying to get enough visibility to drive in the daylight. I had to have the windows down until it got warm enough to start melting the frost and then there was water dripping down and it froze in big drops all over the windows. Finally, there was either no windshield wipe fluid or both nozzles were frozen and nobody bothered to check them and alleviate this problem. I am shocked at the situation all-around.
10.0 ExcellentSep 19 2016
Pros: Good Service and friendly helpful peopleCons: I asked for a car at Hector field and my reservation was actually in town not at the airport. We were charged an additional 10% and this was disappointing.
