Off airport, but fast and easyThe company was quick to pick us up from the airport and processed our rental in less than 5 minutes. We were on the road 6 minutes after arriving at their facility.

Much better option than the places at the airportNo line .. they picked me up promptly & had me on the road in no time. No hassles, no problems. Had to extend 2x on the rental & had no problems. Have already recommended to 2 friends & would use again!

Picked us up at the airport and drove us to the rental car pickup right on time. Car was basically brand new and super clean. Staff was friendly. They drove us back to the airport when we dropped the car off. I would totally rent from them again!
8.0 ExcellentMar 2 2017
Honest reliable service and a good priceOur car was pretty dinged up with scrapes and even what looked like cigarette burns on the seat. The vehicle had close to 40,000 miles on it. We initially didn't see a rock chip on the windshield because it was raining and we thought we would get hassled about it. We did not. They were honest about the chip being there when we picked up the car. The car ran well, the shuttle service to and from the airport was on-time and friendly and the price point for this vehicle was very good. We would use them again.

I had scheduled my pickup for the city of Palm Desert and once we arrived for the rental car they told us it was in Indio. I had the confirmation showing the location for pickup SAID palm desert but for whatever reason they said differently. I know it could have been a glitch or something out of their hands but it was just inconvenient for our plans since we need the rental while our car is being fixed in the shop from an accident.

The car was very clean, thank you to the guys in the back. Anastasia was pleasant and cordial, should be commended for her out going personality. Also kudos to the lady manager who made the transaction very smooth. One of the very best experiences EVER! Yes! I will use them again and again

2.0 MediocreMay 1 2021
Did not have car I ordered. Tried to get me to take smaller car. I refused. Was given a hard time by salesman and then he went away. Tried to speak to manager, was ignored. Staff very unfriendly. I had to leave without a car. Was a disaster. I went to Avis and was treated as a customer should be. Rented a car to my choice for 2 weeks.more honest treatment of a customer. A manager that would listen to my problem. A less hostile attitude. Have used Enterprise in the past, would never use again.

I declined the insurance and was charged for it even though my contract said I declined it. I had to call the Budget rent of car where I picked up the car to clear it up.

They were helpful and nice. 👍🏻
1.9 HorribleJul 25 2021
They canceled on me last minute. They gave away my car, had the nerve to tell me "sorry, no car available for you, we extended another customer's rental" and left me in a lurch. So either they don't get enough money from you, or they don't care if they tick off customers & lose them. And that's what they did, they lost me as a customer. I will NEVER book a rental with them again. NEVER. You don't strand a customer like that.

1.9 HorribleJul 16 2021
We rented the vehicle in Palm Springs and drove to Las Vegas. Once we got to Vegas, we went to return the car since we no longer needed it. When we went to return the car, that location was closed and they wouldn’t let us return it because nobody was there after 4:30. We called Budget and the lady on the phone said we had to wait until the. Following day to return it. There was nowhere on the contract that dictated the time the Budget location was open. She was not helpful at all. We finally had to drive to the airport to return the car. This is the worst customer service I’ve ever experienced with all the running around to return a car early. You have lost me as a customer. There was nothing on the contract that said anything about the hours of the return location we were returning it to. Very unsatisfied customer. Dennis & Susan Hellige

The drop off was a bit complicated since the Budget airport location is closed. Fortunately the Avis people found us and checked in the car. They were all very nice at pick up and drop off

Hertz is NOT the same car rental company, worst rental car experience I have had to date.
1.9 HorribleJun 18 2021
The SUV I rented more than 8 days before the pick up date , wasn't ready and i called 3 times. they never called me until i was 3 hours late for my pickup time , someone told me I have to rent a small car drive it to another location and pick up my desired type of car. The car smells cigarette. have rough sound from the back while driving. I tried to cancel the reservation but the lady said she can't and it has to be through her manager because I paid already for the rental, I decided to take the SUV as it was too late for me to change my plans. Adding assault to the injury ,when I returned the SUV washed in and out and full tank, the guy told me I have to pay 150$ tax , so I told him I paid everything ahead of my rental and he was .... oh let me see what I can do... as he is doing me a favor by waiving taxes, so unprofessional and annoying.

Car was way below Hertz’ usual standards. May be due to car shortage but still disappointing
2.0 MediocreFeb 28 2020
The location was good.Horrible experience in Palm Desert Hertz. Terrible non-responsive customer service - Luis would never return a call, nor would the manager. Given a car with a smashed bumper and engine light on. Extra charges secretly added on. Go someplace else!

No vehicle was available at time of pick up. Ended up making other arrangements. Shouldn’t be able to reserve a vehicle if one is not available.

Staff were friendly. Drop off was easy.The first car I picked up, I drove off and saw a "replace oil soon" light. It was reset but back on with restart. Staff was going to show me how to reset light each time. Sounds like a sensor issue. Got upgrade to SUV and it was a dream trip to Vegas via Mojave Desert.

I had to walk a long way for pick up and drop off since it was at a large resort. Other than that, it was excellent.

I was not notified until I picked up the car that there would be a $200 deposit. The car windows and monitor were dirty. The rental agent was not clear on his words about another card. I tried 2 credit cards but with the additional $200 they were declined. I left the office and went home to call Avis. Gabriel at Avis recommended that I could use my debit card. That was not told to me at the rental office. When I went back to the rental office I spoke to the agent about the use of a debit card. His reply was the same response, Do I have an another card. When I asked about the deposit, he pointed me to a notice above my head. It was not on my email. This made me 2 hours late plus the frustration of not getting the car on time. Very poor customer service.

Was able to secure a same day reservation through Kayak with ease when my car broke down.At Avis, manager said there were no cars available for my reservation. Said next time, I needed to plan further ahead. I explained I was renting out of neccessity not pleasure. He seemed put out by the fact that I needed a car. I cancelled and went elsewhere.

Steering was off4 door, plenty of space, the pickup dropofff associate was very nice and efficient.On the freeway, the car drove very oddly. It was hard to keep the car straight; something with the steering or tires? There were moments when I was extremely uncomfortable on narrow stretches of high speed freeways. I explained to the associate upon dropoff and he attributed it to the size of the car. However, I have rented many economy sized cars and never felt that before. In the end, I would come back again to Avis but be more selective by test driving the car first.

Car rental insurance in Rancho Mirage

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Rancho Mirage car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Rancho Mirage.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Rancho Mirage car rental.
