Pros:Yes, Yes and Yes! :)
Cons:Nothing, everything was great!
Pros:This rental was truly a great value, and much needed help during a difficult time. Thank you.
8.0 Very good
Pros:John was very accommodating and the airport was easy to move around. He even went out and got the car for us as my husband is handicapped and we were his last customer.
Cons:The wait time at the airport desk to get the car that was already reserved. John needed help that day! He was very nice, but out-manned with the requests for cars at the time. Wish we could have had a van instead of an SUV. Cost was HIGH I thought compared to a van rental for the same number of days in Florida.
Pros:Gas mileage was very good for a large SUV
Cons:The SUV was not washed. Dog hair all over the rear luggage area. The back of the front passenger seat was dirty with shoe prints from a child and the carpet on the driver side was dirty.
One location in Jacksonville
Pros:Fast check in a check out

Charged an additional $200 on my credit card for no reason better be returned by tomorrow or there will be a real problem
Pros:Chey cruz is laid out in a very poor fashion. Hated off feature when you stop, hated dashboard, hated trying to find radio station. I will request not to have a chevy in the future. Windshield wipers were horrible

Cons:They did not have a car for my reservation upon arrival and had no other cars, therefore I had no car that say, making me late for my job.
Pros:Staff was professional and easy to work with.
Cons:The vehicle smelled like cigarette smoke. It took me a couple of days to get the odor out of the vehicle. I was not given return instructions and had to make the return in a Sunday when Enterprise is closed. There is no one you can speak to for instructions or help. There should be weekend check in information sheets or something on the building/door to assist customers. Not everyone has computer access or knows how to navigate websites to find such information.
Pros:Drop off was easy. There was some confusion about driving on a toll road and who owned the vehicle and what I should do. I think that should be simple and clear. The stuff is cheerful if not super knowledgeable.
Cons:All the vehicles were very dirty, even the one marked "clean". The vehicle they had chosen for us was only a 12-passenger after we had reserved a 15-passenger, confirmed we needed 15, and made an extra deposit. We had to go kill an hour in town and come back for a pickup which they admittedly only sprayed down with Lysol and did a quick vacuum. It was really gross and I had to clean it myself to feel comfortable putting my kids in it. There were visible smears of some substance on the dash and visors etc. The fuel was not full at pickup. I wanted to see how far off it was and it took $6 to fill it. I returned it completely full and told them, but they were apathetic. That's disappointing. *They did offer me a 10% discount for it not being clean. I appreciated that (I did not ask, they offered). This indicated they were aware the vehicle was sub-standard.
8.0 Very good
Pros:They were quick in and out the door with my rental.
Cons:I was not happy with the pick up site. I requested airport pick up and I was sent to an off site location.
Pros:I had no wait time.
Cons:The car I reserved was not available. Was given an upgrade but was not offered any choices. The car I got was not economical on gas, not a smooth ride, and had no modern electronics inside.

Cons:Nothing the service was great as well as the product.
Pros:The people on both ends were terrific. Friendly and helpful to the max
Cons:With the gas shortage it was a little scary leaving on a four hour trip with a little more than 1/2 a tank of gas. Not the fault of Alamo, it was just the reality for me and Alamo. Happily, by driving 5mph under the speed limit, I was able to save gas and extended the expected range of travel by over 45 miles.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Easy, helpful, clean vehicle
Cons:1 of the electric windows did not work.
Pros:Check in and out process was easy
Cons:The price was twice as much as it would have been if I just went to Alamo directly
Pros:Alamo folks were great, car was clean and the rental process was effortless.
Cons:The Nissan rouge was one of the worst cars I've ever rented, it was clean, good on gas.. but very under engineered cars,
