4.0 OkayJun 28 2018
Customer servicePros: Close to my houseCons: The gentlemen checking me in was rude. He was more interested in his personal phone. The car was not ready and was not clean so I had to wait . Once I waited a half an hour more the car was still not clean but I took anyway because I was due to leave the city. Customer service and overall lack of respect is an issue at this location. I still have not received the final bill even though I called the day after I dropped the car.
2.0 MediocreJun 25 2018
Felt like a scamCons: My reservation was not found when I arrived to pick up my car. There is no 800 number that I could have called to sort this out with KAYAK. Hertz accommodated me very well, but I would never recommend to use this service to book in the future.

Car dealershipPros: The priceCons: The location
5.6 OkayMay 26 2017
Cons: The car was advertised to be located at the Hertz counter in the airport. It was not. It was 3 miles away. That was inconvenient and I had to arrange for my own transportation to and from the Hertz counter back to the airport. Hertz would not offer to take me to the other counter either. It was false advertising and I will not use Hertz or Kayak again. I was attending a funeral in Melbourne and did not welcome the hassle this caused.

6.0 GoodJul 31 2020
Pros: I didn't like the way I was rushed through the registration process. All the information was in small print on a screen that I had to stand on tip toe to read plus the clerk spoke with an accent and with a mask was very hard to understand. She half read each page and told me to press continue. When everything was done she handed me the paperwork and told me to have a safe trip. Didn't tell anything about the car or where it was located. I had to search the paperwork. The car was in space B 6 which was marked AVIS, not Budget. I had to hit the button on the key to be sure that was the correct car. I reserved a car for $ 51. The paperwork said the estimated charges were $ 82.58. As it turns out I was charged $68.75 which was correct as I bought flat rate fuel package.Cons: The clerk could have been more patient. The information could have been where I could see it. I could have been given time to read it or the explanation of what was on each page a lot clearer. I should have been told the color, make, and model of the car and exactly where to find it.
2.0 MediocreJul 14 2020
Pros: Picking up and dropping off the car were the only good parts.Cons: Practice what they preach and actually clean the car after another renter uses it.

9.6 ExcellentJul 26 2018
Pros: The lady was very accommodating when we had an issue with the first car we had ( low tire pressure) was very easy to work with !
4.0 OkayJul 23 2018
Line too longCons: I canceled my Thrifty reservation (made 6 months prior) as I was staring at a line of 6 people ahead of me, in a mostly empty airport. The man working the counter at the Melbourne International Airport appeared to be extremely slow, and the line didn't move in the 10 minutes I stood there. I decided to quickly access carrentals.com, and found a car at an adjacent agency that had no line. They actually upgraded me from a Ford Focus to an Infinity Q-50. Long story short, the line took way too long. After getting off a plane with a toddler, I'm not waiting 20 minutes or more to pick up a reserved car. C'mon.
2.0 MediocreJul 11 2018
Cons: I was 90 minutes late to pick up and they gave my car to someone else. They never tried to contact me to see if I was still coming. So I was forced to go counter to counter trying to find another company with a car I could rent. So it cost me more money in the long run.
5.2 OkayJul 10 2018
Pros: Great customer service during check in /outCons: The first car was a Nissan Altima, it had over 27,000 miles on it. The car was filthy and been wrecked on the back passenger side. The windows were filthy and the dash was coming apart. I have never in my life rented a car that had over 12,000 miles on it, it almost felt like they gave us the bottom of the barrel car because we got a good deal online. We took the car back on the second day and was given a Chevy Impala that had 18,000 miles on it, the cars they had all seemed to be worn out and to be the cheapest model car you could buy. After looking around the rental car lot at the airport Thrifty / Dollar seemed to have the worst looking cars. We are looking to book another car the last weekend of July and will not use Thrifty.
6.8 GoodApr 30 2018
Bogus chargesCons: :bcgroup Details I am writing to refute the cleaning charge of $75.00 on the following rental car contract #Y28022584. I spoke with the local agent and she says management stated that the car smelled of smoke. Neither my husband or I have every smoked. This is ludicrous! We hardly drove the car. No one was there when we returned the car Saturday April 28th and no one was at the counter. If we thought the car smelled like smoke when we picked it up we would of asked for a different car. This is a complete fraudulent charge. I insist a credit of $75 is issued as soon as possible. Kayak is asking me to comment about my car rental experience and I am going to make them aware of this fraudulent activity! I also going to make Hotwire and Thrifty Customer Service aware.
9.2 ExcellentApr 19 2018
Not vehicle I reservedCons: Reserved an altima,they had none so I was charged more for a van

Pros: The guy in Melbourne was not customer friendly. Couldn't give me an idea where the car was in the mall parking lot. The parking lot couldn't find the car and finally said he couldn't speak English. I wandered around a mall parking lot for 15 minutes pushing the lock door button to hear a chirp.Cons: The car was dirty and dusty. Had paint left off the rear driver window. Was left off from an auction???

2.0 MediocreMay 30 2018
Cons: We set up a rental car before ever leaving on our trip. When we arrived there was 22 people in line and one person working. We got tired of waiting canceled car and walked right up to Hertz and rented a car no wait. They had three people working and no line. Avis was a BIG FAIL in my book.
6.0 GoodDec 22 2017
Car and service was good BUT....Pros: car was clean.Cons: First the car was not the one I reserved. Second, The eToll was hidden and activated to trick you into not realizing that you are going to get charged 3.95 for toll and everyday that you have the car. WHY it was hidden behind the mirror and turned is beyond fair customer service. They put a note on the seat but in Florida we use Sunpass -not eToll, so it didn't dawn on me they were one and the same. By the time you got to the toll plaza to pay you were charged, I wanted to pay cash but it was too late "they said" So the right thing to do is call it what it is (Sunpass), tell us where it is (hidden behind the review mirror and have it off.

4.0 OkayJul 20 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and worked with what they had, as it was not their fault personally.Cons: No one answers the phone - I tried calling multiple times for it to go to a voicemail. When I arrived initially to pick up my rental car I was informed there was only one vehicle available and it was a massive SUV (I called the day before the rental to confirm a smaller vehicle would be available and was told yes and I was all good to go). The woman then informed me there was multiple additional charges being added to the rental agreement. I also had an issue with the vehicle during my rental period and could not get a hold of anyone at the rental company, so I went to the location and saw the employees are just sitting there IGNORING the phone ringing on purpose.
10.0 ExcellentJan 6 2020
Pros: April was great and able to answer my questions about possible extending my rental. She even gave me her direct line if I needed to call.Cons: The airport (MLB, Melbourne, Florida) doesn't have the best layout regarding where the rental cars are. Not Dollars fault though!
8.0 ExcellentJan 2 2020

2.0 MediocreMay 23 2017
No unlimited milesCons: Booked on kayak a mini van with unlimited miles. Arrived at counter and van not available but given a equivalent SUV. Then told that this location does not give unlimited mileage, apparently there is some fine print that says not all locations honor unlimited mileage, but you won't know until you get there to pick up. This is an important feature of any car rental deal and should be definitively disclosed not part of a bait and switch tactic.
2.0 MediocreApr 17 2017
No one was at the counter - other agents speculated that she went homePros: NothingCons: We were stranded. Agent was not available to rent car. Our flight was due in at 11:30 PM, I arrived to desk about 11:45. Other agencies were busy but dollar was vacant.
2.0 MediocreFeb 15 2016
Dollar rental is a scam and should not be allow onCons: Dollar rental is a scam and should not be allow on your site. The contract was for unlimited miles as it said on your site. When we got there to rent the truck they gave us a add on stating that we were limited to 125 miles per day.. They refused to honor the contract. I ended up having to go elsewhere to rent a vehicle and payed more.. Who is going to reimburse me for breech of contract??
9.6 ExcellentJan 21 2016
Pros: The people who work there are terrific. Pleasant and efficient. Although it's not on the airport grounds, it's so close that a phone call to them means you'll be in their van within 10 minutes.Cons: There was a residual smell of cigarette smoke (though it's prohibited by their conditions statement). It was only apparent after the car had been shut for a number of hours, and dissipated easily by driving with the windows open for a short while.
