Pros: Great, fun, affordable car with unlimited miles
Cons: The Alamo booth isn't clearly labeled at the bhm airport. It's shared with the National rental booth but I didn't find that out until I asked one of the National guys where the Alamo booth was.

Don't try to change your plans!!
Cons: I was travelling for work this week and had to change my plans last minute so I had to switch my drop off location and I was charged an extra $350 which was more than I had to pay for the whole rental. I contacted Alamo's customer service who were extremely rude and said this is the rate and there is nothing they can do. The fact that I had their car and was forced to pay this amount felt like I was taken advantage of and had no choice in the matter.

Cons: Didn't have the car I reserved.

Cons: Check in was a long involved pain, and once I got through it all, was told I was not able to rent a car because I didn't carry a major credit card and was renting for a one-way travel from ATL to BHM. Was largely inconvenient and was sent to another company that could accommodate. It cost me an extra hour in the airport and ended up spending a lot more. I wouldn't recommend Alamo or really Kayak for that matter.

Pros: Quick drop off and no hassles. Staff was friendly.
Cons: A little confusing from entrance and so many signs for all the different rental companies. Be nice to make them more uniform and better color coded to follow.

Aug 2 2016
Pros: Comfortable car.
Cons: Going to have to work with the Alamo office in Houston - the BHam return could not fix this but they charged me a whole extra day to return the vehicle one hour late, including insurance coverage, extra driver, etc. Over $100 for one hour- even the return person said that was excessive in her view. Car was not clean on outside had not been washed.
Reservation was not available for 1 hour after arr
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Reservation was not available for 1 hour after arrival

Cons: My only issue was that there was a leak in the tire, which was not explained to me at check in. There was a note around the car keys that said "slow leak," but the issue was never discussed with me so I overlooked the note. After driving the car for a few hours I received a low pressure warning which remained on throughout my rental time. I think explaining an issue like a slow leak during check in is ideal, so that the customer has the option of requesting a new car if they plan to drive a long distance.

Pros: Although I didn't have a choice of vehicles because it was the only one left, I really enjoyed driving the Chevy Equinox. Overall a good experience.

Birmingham Dollar needs more staff
