4.0 Mediocre

Cons: Service at pickup was terrible. Long line, two people working counter but only one processing customers. Waited in line over 30 minutes at 11pm at night.

Cons: I was told that the fuel option could be removed from my final bill if I brought the car back with a full tank and showed a receipt proving I filled up with 10 miles of the drop off location. I did as such but was told I was misinformed and they would not remove the fuel option charge. I will not be renting from here again as this cost me an additional $40.

Service
Cons: They wouldn't accept a debit card, give me a car. I had to change car rental companies. Please refund my full insurance payment with Dollar immediately. Thank you. David Whalen

Cons: Staffing at Newark at 10pm was challenges to keep up with just a few folks in line waiting to pick up their rentals. Waited about 20 minutes with only 1 person in line in front of me and two people who were literally at the counter for nearly that entire 20 minutes. Then no one was outside in the yard to help point me to the right vehicle. Ended up accidentally getting into the wrong one and was turned around to be sent back to switch to the right one. Not fun at 11pm on a rainy night outside.

A rental companies who hates the young
Cons: Because we didn't have a credit card, we couldn't take the car and we lost 2 hours trying to take it from another company in the lobby who would be willing to take debit cards. Let alone who wouldn't lash put on the one way fees and the underage fees. Being young usually means being short on money, but the rental companies don't seem to understand that and just take advantage of our energy and our love for travel.

Everything great except mysterious rate change
Pros: Car was clean, new, and well equipped. Staff was friendly, attentive, and interested. 24 hour service was vital, given the uncertainties of air travel arrival times (and airtrain, etc.). Charges were very clearly itemized, no guesswork.
Cons: The rate charged was much higher than the one booked online. No explanation of this change was offered, and it was not due to additional taxes and fees which were very clearly itemized.

Pros: The fiat 500!!
Cons: It's a huge pain to get to the Newark airport.
5.6 Okay
Feb 7 2016
Cons: My flight was an hour early and because I picked up the car early it changed the amount from about $65 to over $200. Then the agent said she wouldn't charge me for a premium vehicle but she did.
10.0 Excellent

Alamo at PHL is tied to National
Pros: Price was way better than the others. Location was convenient for pick-up.
Cons: You are at the counter of National Rental Car, Alamo doesn't have their own counter here at Newark Airport so you are at the mercy of their reps. It's slow because you are in the same line that are in. The compact Mitsubishi car I rented (Mirage) was horrible. It felt highly unstable cornering and had a top heavy feeling.

Worst rental car company ever
Pros: Didn't like anything
Cons: The manager was rude and when I tried to pick up a confirmed rental, I was told there were no cars. I had a confirmation number, but she said that couldn't help me. This was the Payless rental at Newark airport. Went to the next counter and rented through budget. Don't book with them!

I'd much rather pay a little more at Hertz or some
Pros: less expensive than other options
Cons: Outrageously poor service and an infuriating experience Who are the clowns operating this half-baked rental car business out of Newark Airport? I'm guessing they're evil, whoever they are. When I arrived to claim my reserved car they lied about what my original reservation details were so that they could try to up-sell me into a more expensive contract. Try to get your head around that? The attendant was so rude, she wouldn't make eye contact, and she lectured me with her idiotic company-fed lines until finally accepting that the scam wasn't going to work on me. I eventually got my car as reserved, but it stank like smoke. Absolutely horrific.

Lost & Cancelled Reservation
Pros: I liked the initial feeling that this was going to go well based on the efficient booking process on Kayak. This was very short lived.
Cons: My reservation was lost, and then when my partner attempted to get any information using all of the reservation info that I passed along to him (and offering to have them call me directly, or me call them), he was told that there was nothing that he could do. Then, they "found" the reservation by looking under a code for another airport and alerted him that they had no cars left even though we attempted to notify them and modify the reservation/late pickup. Once told they had absolutely no cars, we both again looked online and immediately found that we were able to reserve the same car at the same price. When we showed that to the counter help, they sighed and said that yes they did have cars, but it would be "like, 45 minutes" until they were ready at the earliest. None of this really made sense, but I wasn't exactly approaching this budget car rental situation with that expectation. Luckily, my partner was able to make a separate reservation, and then "spend time at Dunkin Donuts" until the car was "ready" as directed. I did end up paying for a car rental insurance agreement for both times I attempted to book, and not for the actual rental that took place. Silver lining though - we didn't get any additional damage charges while risking the lack of round 3 insurance!

Random fees.
Pros: The service was fine; the workers were very nice.
Cons: I got charged for random late fees that even the people there didn't understand, and I don't have time to fight it. So it just leaves me feeling like I was cheated.

Good car, sounded like a good deal but when I drop
Pros: Car was good Car was clean Wait time at Newark was only 5-10 mins
Cons: 3 hours late to drop off the car due to a mishap and I was charged 1 full day of $137 extra! That was a rip off! I feel cheated.
