Pros: Staff was friendly and pick up and drop off were easy.
2.0 MediocreNov 21 2020
Pros: nothing, they were not thereCons: I arrived at 11:15 into GSO/PTI airport, and the Alamo staff did not wait, and no other rental agences were still open, so I was forced to get a $70 uber ride to my destination and find a car the next day. No one was available by phone to assist me that evening (even the 24 roadside assist was not answering) and the following day I was able to reach roadside assistance who said that they could not help. I phoned the national office and was told that someone would contact me. No one ever called, apologized, or offered to reimburse me for the extra expense. WORST service I have ever received. You CANNOT count on Alamo.

2.8 MediocreOct 16 2020
Pros: Absolutely Nothing!!Cons: They were supposed to open at 06:30, The one and only employee wandered in @06:52 took him till 7:00 to start addressing customers. It took till 7:34 to get vehicle. I checked with Alamo one prior to ensure vehicle would be on site as I had very tight schedule. Will not recommend, nor rent from them.

5.2 OkaySep 23 2020
Pros: Friendly but rushed.Cons: Only one person covering three rental companies at airport. She was quite hurried. We ended up with very uncomfortable vehicle. Chose standard size car ended up with VW Gulf but felt like we were driving a golf cart all weekend.
6.0 GoodSep 22 2020
Pros: The staff was pleasant and the process was quick.Cons: The vehicle was very dirty inside. I reserved a full size SUV in what's the only one left, otherwise I would have refused it. There were dried bird droppings on the car windows. I had to clean the entire vehicle before I could get my family in there to leave on our trip. There were sticky items on the seats, dog hair, and food crumbs in the cupholders.
5.6 OkaySep 8 2020
Cons: Staff harassed me about my car being overdue when dropped off on time at another airport (as scheduled) hours before. Also harassed through multiple emails the same day stating that I was overdue when the car was dropped off on time and I had a pending charge on the card for days for more than the car reservation cost Card was overcharged $200 when I picked it up despite a deposit not being due at pickup on my email and despite the fact that I used a credit, not debit, card. No one available at drop-off and no checkout paperwork available I did not appreciate being made to feel like a criminal when I did everything correctly and by the book.

9.6 ExcellentFeb 3 2020
Cons: I had a great experience with my rental, the only reason I give a good and not excellent on cleaning was because the car was washed before I got it, but was a quick wash, mirrors still had salt on them, was really hard to see merging on to the interstate from the airport at night and nowhere to pull off safely to clean them myself. But again, overall was a great experience

2.0 MediocreSep 3 2018
Car not ready. Too slow procces.Pros: Nothing that I liked. Your service sucks big time.Cons: Service sucks.
Pros: Not much. Stood waiting at the counter while the agent was engaged in a personal conversation with someone without a mask. She could not answer questions about the drop off, and could not provide a phone number for the drop off location. Was overcharged for a full tank of gas at the dropoff location, which I will dispute. Refused a paper receipt at dropoff and was told I would get an emailed receipt. When I questioned what the charge would be for fuel, the agent said he did not know. The emailed receipt shows a charge for a full tank of gas, when the tank was over half full. That charge will be disputed. I will try to avoid Thrifty in the future.Cons: More attentive staff, provided with better information.

Pros: Friendly StaffCons: Car reeked of smoke and was dirty.
Horrible misleading servicePros: NothingCons: I reserved a vehicle on carrentals.com and was offered renters insurance at $9/day. There was no option to pay online but i reserved at that price. When I got to the aorport they did not honor my renters insurance price and tried to charge me $29/day. Horrible business practices and unprofessional company. I will NEVER rent with them in my life time.
6.4 GoodSep 19 2017
Pros: The truck was great.Cons: I wasn't told that there would be a fee to return the car at a different location when I booked the rental. I was quoted three different prices. My credit card was charged more than my receipt. It was complicated to find where to return the keys. I won't use this company again.
8.0 ExcellentJul 26 2017
Pros: price and customer serviceCons: car messed up on me but I was given another
5.2 OkayJun 25 2017
Cons: I don't want to blame Budget as a company, but the man behind the counter flat out lied about the rate and what we signed. Yes, you should always read what you sign, but when someone tells you what it is, you expect they are being truthful. Customer service reimbursed 20%, but we never should have been in that position.
9.6 ExcellentMay 25 2017
Great servicePros: Quick on the drop off and, when we had to re-rent the same car to drive to another airport because of a weather issue the employee got me back on the road quick and adjusted the rental for the fuel I'd prepaid.

8.8 ExcellentFeb 11 2017
Dollar does it RIGHT!Pros: We loved the price for one way from Greensboro, NC to Jacksonville, FL was $30!! No extra fees. Of course i called and specified before I picked up the vehicle what fees were included. $19.99 for vehicle about $10 for taxes and fees. They only give you an hour window of the time you specify pick up to keep the confirmed vehicle. Which worked great for us. We hit traffic and was later 9am reservation. 9:45am pickup.Cons: The vehicle didnt have cruise control or armrest. Overall wasnt a bad vehicle. The pickup took us 15-20 minutes. Only one teller at the window. Drop off was quick and very smooth.
5.2 OkayJan 15 2017
Dollar rental was not supportive when my tire blewPros: - located at the airport - Price was reasonableCons: - Too much time to check in and check out - Dollar computer system couldn't find my reservation because the rental rate from KAYAK was too low - Too far a distance to walk to car from check out counter - It was a blizzard with wind, snow, ice, sleet pouring but no snow brush was included in the car and the tires were standard low quality tires - One of the tires became flat from the cold freezing weather but the rental car didn't include a spare - After the tire was flat and I was stranded on the side of the 85 S freeway at 4 AM, which was iced over, Dollar's roadside assistance couldn't send a tow truck until the morning - After the car was towed back to the airport, the rental car blamed me for the flat tire and charged me for the flat tire and the towing service
2.0 MediocreJan 11 2017
Pros: n/aCons: I wasn't able to rent due to being 23 and the age requirement is 25, me personally not having a credit card, and having to pass the credit check.

Cons: I could have been alerted that the rental location where I was supposed to pick up the car closed at 6:00 PM, the same time as my pick-up. There was a fierce thunderstorm over Greensboro at that time, and I arrived at the rental facility at 6:08 to find it locked up tight. Not enough space here
9.2 ExcellentApr 22 2019
Pros: Drop-off super easy. Pickup was more complicated. They could not find the reservation. I was shifted back and forth between two agents. The woman who finally helped me was very professional.Cons: See above
9.6 ExcellentApr 1 2019
Cons: It was a hybrid car. There were a lot of features that wasn’t familiar with like the figuring out the gas vs electric or how to use the air via the touch screen. The car was comfortable and drove smooth but I almost wish it wasn’t as fancy. Felt like I needed to read the manual before getting in. L
Pros: I had reserved a car for travel. When I arrived I was told there was no car available. I had to drive to the airport and try to find a rental there. The young man there was very helpful and polite. He helped me find a car but the entire process was very frustrating. Time consuming and frustrating.Cons: When you reserve a car for a trip you expect to have a car reserved. It was poorly handled and I am not sure how you can get away with not honoring a confirmation. I feel quite sure I am not the only one this has happened to as we witnessed another customer being told the same thing. I am not sure how your company finds this acceptable in this day and time with as much feed back that customers are able to express on social media. Individuals plans and itineraries are extremely important to them when they need a car for traveling. I have also tried to reach someone by phone today unsuccessfully. Put or hold forever or just no answer. Unacceptable!

Cons: I will never rent from this company again!!! It has the worst customer service ever!! I spent over 4 hours on the phone..... 3 separate calls .... to see if I could get a larger vehicle. Long story short... I didn’t get a larger vehicle AND I was charged $100 to cancel the reservation. The company basically stole $100. I was trying to move my daughter across the country to college and they didn’t care. Free $100.

2.8 MediocreJun 29 2019
Pros: The return was easy.Cons: In rented a minivan but at pickup they stated that the van had been sold and was no longer available. I had to get an SUV instead, which was not ideal as I was traveling with small children and was needing the storage and convenience of a van. The car I received had not been cleaned well.
6.0 GoodJun 23 2019
Pros: Severely understaffed when I went to return vehicle. Very capable staff member but no additional help. Over 5 people waiting for service, phone ringing incessantly and I felt sorry for him. Poor management strategy to handle a busy Saturday business day with shortened hours this way.Cons: Be PREPARED to wait. I won't use HERTZ ever again. Bad taste in my mouth.
2.0 MediocreMar 24 2019
Pros: I had a terrible experience with Hertz. I got a call 2 hours before my arrival that they were sorry, but they would not have a car for me (even though I had a reservation). Their only solution was to suggest I try another Hertz location. They, too, were out of cars.Cons: Since the other Hertz was also out of cars, they had NO other ideas. I was just in a new place, needing a car and completely out of luck. Thank goodness for Alamo - they got me all set up and thankfully didn't charge me an outrageous rate.
Pros: Pickup and drop off was close to the terminal in both locations.Cons: Two things: 1- Picking up the rental took entirely too long (25 minutes) to bring the car to us. That left us waiting outside in a parking garage in the heat with a 14 month old. 2- Our rental was out of oil at the time of pickup. Avis’s solution was to tell us to go put oil in it ourselves.

Nice Suburban but pick up took an hour and halfPros: Nice black Suburban in good conditionCons: Tried to give me a Tahoe first then when pressed that I rented a Suburban for its larger cargo they had me wait. Car was not ready at scheduled time and had to wait for an oil change for an hour and a half.
Appreciate the service but probably no next timePros: They had a car availableCons: They require a lot more info than regular rental places including references, social security number, place of employment, and own private insurance. It was extremely off putting.

Renting a car is the most comfortable and convenient way to tour the city of Greensboro, North Carolina, as well as other main destinations across the state. Explore unmissable attractions such as the International Civil Rights Center and Museum or the Greensboro Arboretum, which is only 3 miles from downtown. For a longer road trip, head to Charlotte, about 90 miles away.
All the big car rental agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO), which is about 12 miles from Greensboro’s city center. The car rental desks are located near the Baggage Claim area in the airport’s main terminal. The vehicles are typically parked within walking distance.
Fall is the best time to visit, as the weather is mostly dry after the typically wet spring and summer, which often see rainfall and thunderstorms. Avoid driving in the downtown area, as it’s usually pretty packed, and park the car in the surrounding areas instead. A good tip to make use of your car is to drive it through the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park for a self-guided tour.
Although Greensboro has one of the best commute times in the country, the roads still get busier during rush hour, both in the morning (between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.) and in the evening (between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.). The area near the Coliseum experiences traffic jams every time there’s a big event. The Elm-Eugene stretch downtown and Gate City Boulevard can also get rather busy.
