Cons: The car left a lot to be desired. It was a VW Passat with 45k miles -- more than I usually see on rental cars. It had quite a bit of minor body damage, though it was hard to tell because the car was so dirty. The oil change light on the dash was on and "oil change" was written on the window (indicating they knew about this and just hadn't dealt with it after the last rental ended). The alignment was severely off and the front tires were bald because it had clearly been this way for a long time.

RENTAL CAR AT MSP AIRPORT 12/06 - 12/09/16
Pros: Ease of renting at a reasonable price
Cons: We were promised Camry from the beginning till when we picked up the contract at the MSP airport. Still we received KIA which we did not like at all.
Oct 11 2015
Cons: My flight was delayed a couple of hours and when arrived at the airport (with my family) I found Advantage's counter closed for the day. When called to their customer service line, their answer was that I had to come back the following day or go to another agency. Theirs was the only closed counter @ the airport. Will never book or use their services again.
Nov 5 2015
Pros: very professional , great car
Nov 23 2015
Great rental car
Pros: Service and speed of service
Nov 27 2015
Pros: Nice, clean car.
Cons: I didn't like how hard they pushed for an up-sale for a different car. The agent charged me fees without telling me about them. (I knew there would be a fee for another driver, but she didn't tell me the cost.)
I've never paid so much for a rental car! I didn't upgrade to anything fancy, had it for 4 days and it was about $70 a day. This did not include any insure fee I pre-paid. However, I did pre-pay for the gas.
The car itself was nice. It drove fine and had good gas mileage.
I would definitely go back to the company I've always booked with in the past.
Nov 27 2015
Pros: Car was fantastic.
Cons: Customer service was terrible, and rude.
Nov 29 2015
Waited for pickup, great help for dropoff.
Pros: The size of the car - we ordered a compact but basically got a mid-sized.
When we dropped off we mistakenly went to the wrong terminal but fortunately the Advantage employee drove us to correct terminal and helped with the drop off.
Cons: We had to wait almost 30 minutes for the pick up and car had been smoked in.
Nov 29 2015
Quick, convent, reaaonable
Pros: Always an easy pick up and drop off. Friendly customer service. No annoying post pick up scanning as you exit the airport. Clean cars. Never have had an issue
Cons: Cars always don't have all the bells and whistles, but they are clean and get you where you need to go.

We had great service at check in. No problems with
Cons: This was in no way the fault of the rental car agency. But we found this airport to be confusing We accidentally dropped our rental car at the wrong terminal because the address on the paperwork led us to the wrong terminal . We had to take the city train to our terminal. It would have been nice to Have the drop off address for both terminals on our paperwork.
Pros: I really enjoyed the BMW X5 that I was given
Dec 27 2015
Fast Snappy Service

Aug 13 2016

Cons: no cd player
Aug 23 2016
Not the Best
Cons: The final price was more than what was quoted at booking. A couple weeks earlier, I got a Lincoln MKZ for the same price as Budgets Hyundai Sonota from one of their competitors.
Aug 29 2016
Cons: Long wait for picking up car, split between waiting in queueing line and then for them to clean cars. Overall about 30 minutes from when I arrived at counter to when I drove away.
Aug 30 2016
Pros: Clean, nice car with a lot of Features
Cons: The agent at the Budget counter bamboozled me into buying the optional Insurance plan which doubled my bill!
Nov 1 2016
Easy - Good Value
Pros: Rented a small SUV for 5 days (Ford Escape). Great price and fit my needs perfectly. Check in was fast and easy
Cons: Late night drop off was a little messy - no one to meet cars and had to drop info at Budget counter so I didn't get a final receipt - no instructions that this is what needed to be done.
MSP Car Rental location/setup is a bit confusing - nothing to do with Budget - just need better signs/directions
Dec 3 2016
Cons: I was rejected because I had a debit cart instead of a credit card.
Pros: The car was fairly easy to rent, even though this was my first experience renting a car on my own in an unfamiliar city. I appreciated they let me choose the car in my price range. Everyone was generally friendly.
Jul 19 2016
Pros: It was a great experiece everyone was friendly and helpfull !
Aug 17 2016
Sales bullying and lying
Pros: Nothing well never rent from them ever!
Cons: I'll never rent from Alamo again, all because of Mohammed. His selling tactic is shameful and shows how low quality the rental business with Alamo lies.
Under value rental car company
Sep 22 2016
Easiest car rental experience ever

Mar 6 2017
Pros: Roomy SUV
Mar 7 2017
A few hiccups
Pros: Customer service was good. But I was a bit shocked when he said that my rental charge would be three times the rate I had paid. Then he fixed the problem.
First car we picked had a light on it it so the gatekeeper stopped us before we took off.
Second car was good but the attendant locked the keys in the car after turning off the alarm. Funny
Cons: It was really late and we had to drive for another two hours before rest so the hiccups were a bit time consuming - even though handled well.
I enjoyed driving the car. It was easy to operate. Heater worked very well and I really appreciated that being from las vegas and visiting duluth.
The option to prepay the gas saved us a good half hour on the trip back.
Mar 18 2017
I'll avoid Alamo next time
Pros: Not much.
Cons: The vehicle was the lowest trim. It didn't even have a USB input for phone charging.
Cons: Agent who checked me in was not clear about pricing of upgraded options and made it seem like you had your pick of vehicles. I had to specifically ask if there would be a higher rate for some of the vehicles that were being offered. I felt they were purposely non-transparent about upgrade charges in an effort to get the upsell. When turning the vehicle in there was no one there to direct you on the return process

Avis drop off at Airport
Pros: Ease of dropping off at the airport (Very Easy!)
Mar 6 2016
Cons: The people I talked on the phone at MSP airport gave me misleading and incorrect information regarding my return. I went to one terminal to return me car, they told me it was the incorrect location for my flight, and sent me to the other terminal. When I returned my car, there was no attendant, so I left it there. It turns out I was charge extra for returning the car at the wrong location. Thankfully, when I call Avis, they refunded the fee, but it all could have been avoided.
Jun 9 2016
No Cars Available
Cons: Upon arriving for a confirmed 10AM pickup, we were told that there would be no cars available for two hours. Our first meeting was less than an hour away from beginning, so we were forced to cancel the car and use Uber for the duration of our trip. This was very disappointing.
Aug 14 2016
Rented two large vans from Avis for a trip
Pros: the vans were clean
Cons: Pick up and drop off was terrible. Waited for over 1:45 hours to get the vehicles and drop off required me to go inside and wait in another line to check in the cars.
Aug 30 2016
Pros: The car was clean and a joy to drive.
Cons: The people at the counter were slow. Check-in should be easy and quick, but had to go all the way into the terminal to the counter to hand in forms, and the guy really didn't know what he needed to do and what options I had selected. Hope I didn't pay too much.
Cons: The car heating and defrost system was messed up and I couldn't see out of the right side of the car a majority of the time, it worked sometimes if the heat was blasted
Mar 4 2017
Cons: I made reservation for a midsize car and i called to make sure they had it and they said yes we have all the cars and when i got there i got a small car and it was dangerous to drive on the highway !!!!
