Apr 6 2016
Cons: I reserved a generic car on line that I thought would be a mid size car. The cost of an upgrade was double what I reserved. The Florida toll system was not explained and I see in the contract that I will be surcharged an outrageous "service fee" for tolls. As it stands now, I would never rent from Dollar again.

Messed up the rate
Pros: The fact that they did everything they could to fix an error that was made regarding pricing and days. And fixed it! Saved me approx. $100.00

Fees and fees and fees
Cons: The car smelled like herbs of the illegal type. They just sent you on your way to just find the car. They didn't do anything with my gas receipt upon return so I just had to come out of pocket. You'll be high pressured to buy insurance. Staff was friendly until it came time to pay. Paid three times the kayak amount.

Pros: Clean car
Cons: They tried to sell me a tank of gas. Implied that I would be saving money. Who brings car back with empty tank? Over sold me on cost of prepare turnpike fee. Rip off. Just another shell game to get more money out of customer. No Dollar rental.next time.

Mar 9 2016
Cons: They overcharged me by double, then said they couldn't reimburse me over the phone with Customer Service. They said that I had to go wait in line again to talk to the manager in person at the pick up location. The first thing the manager said was to call Customer Service to get it fixed! They really need to get it together and honor the quote given.

Mar 22 2016
Pros: service and location
Cons: I kept the car for 2 days longer and it cost me $170.xx that's outrageous, and I will be contacting Fox directly. I had the rental for 11 days and 2 extra days. For 11 days it was $320.xx with prepaid fuel. my total was $490.xx F$*king crazy. Never again will I do that. Most of all the biggest problem I had was the fact that both cars I had were experiencing some type of mechanical problem. The Hyundai I rented needed a CV joint or Drive axel. had to bring it back and waste about 1 hour of my time during a busy work-week for myself. Then I got a 2014 Ford focus SE with the well-known (according to google) transmission problem at 50k miles. Super annoying.

Hidden fees, and bad attitudes.
Pros: Car worked. Car was clean.
Cons: 1. Extra fees. The estimate for two days was $83. It ended up costing $130 with an additional $150 deposit that takes a week to return. 2. Bad attitudes. I get that the employees don't get paid much, but everyone was grumpy and crabby about doing their job. 3. Weird smell in the car. They sprayed it with something nasty like cherry and almonds. It went away in a day with the windows down. 4. Off site transport was a pain.

Pros: The guys who showed us to our car were very nice and helpful

A reservation doesn't mean anything to them - Dis-
Pros: Nothing
Cons: They said that they didn't have any cars. It appears that if one does not pre-pay for the car a reservation with Advantage isn't really a reservation. No apology just no car and it's my fault for not pre-paying which wasn't an option. Kayak shouldn't include them in their system because a reservation is meaningless with Dis-Advantage

gimmics, lies, scams
Pros: nothing
Cons: After credit card was used, I'm told "out of cars at my rate"(Two signs advertised "cars available" so ours was probably given away warlier to someone with no reservation. I was told my Sun pass would absolutely not work and had to pay $7. daily on top of toll!!! Van dirty. Never Advantage again.

Rental OK Customer Service Awful
Pros: No problem with the rental car.
Cons: We landed late in Fort Lauderdale around 10:40 by the time we reached the Advantage counter it was close to 11:30 p.m. There were 3 employees one called me up we began David the agent proceeds to tell me that I need proof of insurance. I was taken back....I asked why. I was told it's our company policy. I have never heard of this with any rental company and I travel alot. I asked if I could bring my insurance up on my phone. David replied No we need the paper. He handed me a piece of paper with he wrote this fax numer 954-359-4025 & wrote Declaration Page. Then asked me to step to the side while he wait on the next customer. At this point I'm frantic. I'm traveling with my teenager it's midnight and I have to still travel an hour and a half to my destination. I call my husband to see if another rental company can help me. While waiting I asked another agent Angela if this insurance policy is with all rental companies in the state of FL and new since my husband was there the week before me and rented with another company. Angela explained it's for FL locals. The agent David who waited on me never asked if I was traveling thru FL but assumed I was a local since I have a FL driver license. I no longer live in the state I explained. Angela tells me oh as long as you have your flight information you don't need proof of insurance. I was so Annoyed and Frustrated that they Did Not disclose this information up front. I had to ask questions. In other words you're not a valuable customer and I don't have to go above and beyond to assist you. There was No issue since I no longer reside in the state of Florida. If only David would have asked. I will not rent from Advantage again nor recommend them. I asked if there was a chance I could get a different SUV without missing a beat Nope this is it. Not even a pretend let me check or we have this. Terrible! Terrible! Customer Service. How do you allow a woman traveling with her teenage daughter to just stand at your counter and not try to help them especially that late at night it's now close to 12:00 a.m.? Thankfully I did not have an issue with the rental car.

we won't be booking with advantage again
Pros: I pre paid for my reservation $268.00. when I picked it up they added an additional $200 as a deposit. when I dropped off the car they wanted to charge me an additional $205!! none of the information they had on their reservation matched my prepaid reservation. after many phone calls I did get my 200 and $5 refunded. I rent cars for business several times a month and never have this problem except with advantage and its associates.

Bait and switch on model reserved
Cons: My rental reservation read "Jeep Grand Cherokee or like model." When I went to pick up vehicle, I was told I could not have the Cherokee that was parked I the "premium SUV" aisle and had to take a "standard SUV", either the Kia or Dodge. The guy working at FLL could not understand why I expected to drive the vehicle that was on my reservation and on the lot! He was zero help and I strongly feel pulled a bait and switch.

Pros: Car was very clean.
Cons: It was the wrong type of vehicle. We reserved a full size pick up truck. They gave us an SUV. We reserved a truck for the open bed in back to move things. The SUV did not do what we had reserved a truck for so we ended up renting an additional car, truck, through u haul.

Car and value very good, process not so good.
Pros: Everything with car great. Value is terrific.
Cons: Issue is pick-up and drop-off. Requires two shuttles to get to rental location, and the process to rent and return is not as efficient as it should be. If you want to decline insurance make sure you have an up-to-date insurance verification card with you. You will have to get your insurance agent on the phone if you do not. Had to wait on a car like many others once finished doing paperwork, and the time needed to return the car is unpredictable depending on whether that day they have a person checking you in, or you have to wait on the rental agent handling new renters to check you in.

Fort Lauderdale Airport
Pros: We did get a car that fit our needs pretty much perfectly, but we seemed to be lucky since their lot seems pretty sparse. It was the most affordable option, but you get what you pay for.
Cons: Warning, the Ace rental shop at FLL is not actually at the airport. You have to take a 5 minute shuttle ride out to it. We were not told about this and spent a few minutes trying to figure it out before asking one of the airport employees what to do. The car selection on the lot is pretty sparse and unlike a lot of other companies you do not get to pick the car on the lot, they assign you one. Lastly, DO NOT buy the fastpass option for toll roads at this store unless you absolutely need it. They suggested getting it because we would "most likely need it" and that it was "pretty cheap". We even told them where we were going and they said there would be toll roads, but there weren't and it ended up costing us an extra ~$11/day. In summary the Fort Lauderdale Ace Car rental shop was the least expensive option for us, but we got what we paid for and will be spending a bit more money to go somewhere else in the future.

Cons: Treating me like like I'm a fool...smdh.
