KAYAK

Cons:

I wasn’t sure if I’d actually get a car. I booked my car after Hertz had closed the day before a holiday and it doesn’t seem that their stock of cars was updated and communicated to Kayak. In the end it worked out but I was left to wonder, given a high number of requests for cars from this location

Pros:

Pickup location was convenient

Cons:

Car was not available when we arrived. It had no gas and dirty inside & out when we were given keys. never given return instructions

Nov 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Convenient pick-up location (in our hotel)

Cons:

First car had a defective key (and got stranded) and an empty windshield wiper fluid tank. Not great when on the highway. We got a new car because they could not change the key, had to go over the whole process of paperwork, checking scratches etc again. The second car was dirty, both inside (smelling of smoke plus Febreze, yukky large spots on front seat) and outside: first thing we did was clean the outside mirrors. Checked windshield wiper fluid again: empty! Asked for a different car: none available, except in a different class, and apparently this was not a reason for an upgrade. In addition, the 2nd car was less comfortabel than the 1st. Oh, and, this is the first time that the driver's name had to match the name on the credit card, even if the owner of the credit card is present and can identify himself!

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The wait for the car put me into a time crunch. The car that they brought was old and dirty, windows so dirty I didn't feel safe driving. The representative did apologize for the dirty car. The next day I was able to barely squeeze a few moments into my day to return the car for an exchange. Again, the wait was so long, I was time crunched again. The car this time was newer, reeked of cigarette smoke, had just over 1/2 a tank of gas, and had windshields so coated with smoke residue that I had to stop to buy some window cleaner. When I returned the car, the only adjustment they made was to waive the tax on the rental price.

Cons:

I rented a midsize suv such as the RAV 4. Alamo initially offered a small mitsubishi "suv" at the garage. I declined and they provided an "upgrade" to a chevy equinox...another compact suv nice car but one class lower than the midsize billed. Very nice staff, but that was wrong.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing.

Cons:

I didn't get to rent the car because after calling Alamo multiple times to confirm policies, I spent 30$ taking an Uber to the airport only to be told I had been given wrong information and they would not rent me the car. It nearly cost me a night of my vacation and I ultimately had to borrow a car at great inconvenience to a family member. Will never ever use Alamo again.

Pros:

Enterprise had great customer service

Cons:

The Nissan versa was a horrible car for a long roadtrip and not what I wanted. Handling was very poor on the highway as the whole car shakes. The cruise control did not work and there was greasy fingerprints on the inside of windshield. Very disappointed with the car and I reserved a midrange Mitsubishi and all they had was Nissan versas. I plan on upgrading to a better vehicle for the trip back

Polite and helpful personnel and the added convenience of returning the car to a nearby location from the original pickup site. They waived the fee for that service. Very nice. The manager at the Huntington site in Alexandria bent over backwards to assist us. Definitely will use Enterprise again.

We picked up at Airport but we didn't fly in and it was a little tricky getting to the office when we were driving in. Once inside we went to the National Desk but there was no one there, the issue was that there was a window open and it had a coat on the chair so it looked like someone had just stepped away. We waited, knocked and called out but no one came. Finally a worker passing by said we needed to go to the Alamo window and that did work fine But there should have been some sign at the National desk telling us to do that. The rest of our experiences were very good.
