Pros: Vehicle was clean, desk clerk was well mannered and professional. Checkout and return were quick.
Cons: Only 2 parking spots by office. Gate employee was annoyed when I couldn't produce inspection form- he was more annoyed when he saw it in the cup holder! How am I to know what a veh insp form is??? Had to find a creepy swing gate in back fence to get to where my truck was parked. Gate guy and desk guy fist bumped and talked sports at desk- didn't seem very professional (they were both 25 y/o African American, I am 55 y/o Christian/ Anglo/ Veteran) ...awkward.

Not overly impressed
Pros: I was provided a Toyota Camry, which was convenient since our family drives a similar upgraded model at home.
Cons: The car had 32K miles, bald tires undetected for the first 4 days and damaged front grill from prior drivers running into parking curbs (I had to snap loose parts back in place prior to leaving the lot on day 1). Camry's have little front end clearance and should always be backed into parking locations to prevent this problem. As with most other car rental companies, Advantage attaches all car keys to a heavy cable for the Rental company convenience - not the customer. They keys must be detachable to permit at least one key to remain with the customer comfortably. Suggest revising this process and make the customer responsible for any lost keys. Use Advantage Again- Humm????

Missinformation from employees lead to disaster.
Pros: Car was comfortable to drive.
Cons: I called the night before my drop off to make sure there would be a shuttle available early in the morning. I was planning on dropping off at 5:30am. I was told that not only would there not be a shuttle but that the location would not be open until 6am and I could not return until that time which would make me miss my flight. I ended up having to change my flight to a later time which cost $150. When I went to return the car at 6am I saw that they were open at 5am for drop offs. I will never use Advantage again.

Buyer Beware
Pros: Access to a bathroom at the pickup location. Found my charger/cell phone dock before i left them.
Cons: 1)Pickup van took 45 minutes to get to the airpiort on arrival. 2) We called 10 minutes before we returned to have them keep the van since we were running late. The guy on the phone said the van was there. The van left right as we pulled in, the driver just looking at us as we frantically waived her down. 3) On arrival the clerk told us the fuel prebuy would be prorated if we brought back the tank at half. 4) The person checking the car at the beginning and end had zero experience at costumer service, bordering on rudeness. 5) The car was 4,000 miles past service when we discovered the warning on our 3rd day. 6) The clerk was visibly annoyed when I kept asking what the items I was initializing were about. 7) Was given an SUV upgrade which was ok, but really wanted a more economic car. Please pay the couple of dollars extra and go with a good rental company, namely any but this one. You have been warned. We expect better of Kayak, they should remove this company from their list of recommended companies.

Great Choice
Pros: The car was what was expected and the service was very friendly.
Cons: There was only one person working, so it was quite a long wait to pick up and return the car.

Costly Confusion!
Cons: When we arrived at the San Antonio airport, I was told our rental was not at the airport but at another site. My fault for missing that detail. The Hertz agent at the airport said it would cost 4x more to rent at the airport. We decided to take a taxi to the site. Much to our surprise, the agent gave us an outdated map with address of the location. They had moved so we went to the wrong address and finally called to get the right address $40 later. Disappointing way to start our vacation. We were hit with extra costs that were not explained clearly. Not a good deal. Don't plan to go with Hertz again!

Good Experience
Pros: Renting the car went very smooth. First I confirmed the car online the type of car, where we'll pick it up & drop off. The price, and any other things I wanted. This was easy fairly fast I got a confirmation #. I went picked up the car was great. Went easy, fairly fast & I was on my way. I had to extend the rental for a day that was easy & dropping it off was also easy. So the whole experience was very good. I would rent a car this way again.
Cons: Don't have any big complaint the only thing I didn't like was trying to find the place was confusing. They have a big sign that says "return rentals" yet it is also where you go in the office to rent the cars. We drove around for 10-15 min when he finally asked someone & we found out it was the entrance too.

Great service
Pros: The staff was very helpful. I missed my reservation and they got me in a car immediately anyway. When I returned it, I forgot to fill my gas, but they let me out to refill it nearby, no problem. Also, when I finally did return it, they ran through the rain and handled all of the paperwork for me, quickly. I was very pleased!
Cons: The location is not exactly close by the terminal, but the free shuttle gets you back and forth fairly quickly.

Good service and vehicle overall.
Pros: The service and vehicle were great.
Cons: My only reservation was their opening time. I had a 6 am flight and they don't open until 5 am. Myself and at least 7 other customers were waiting for them to open in order to not miss our flights. However, the checkout and shuttle service was fast. Just a little too close for comfort, that's all.

Feb 23 2016
Pros: Comfortable with good visibility. Nice backup camera and a powerful engine for towing.
Cons: The low tire pressure light came on early in the trip. I stopped and checked the tires and put air in the right front tire. I checked the tires a couple more times and the tires seemed to be holding air, however, I could never get the low tire pressure light to reset. Also, they washed the car before I picked it up, but they did not replace the antenna, so I had no radio for 8 days.

Dirty Car
Pros: The car was readily available when we checked in.
Cons: When we got the car, the car hadn't been washed or vacuum or wiped inside. We also found a broken piece of glass on the front passenger side. Because we were in a hurry, we ended up just dealing with.

Too many hidden fees
Cons: Pick up was very much a hassle. I already made a reservation online with all my information, but when I came to pick up my rental I was asked all the same questions again. Why? Then they charged me $200 for using my debit card, on top of all the other hidden fees, the total amount was double what the rental was suppose to be.

Left us stranded
Pros: Nothing
Cons: No car and no representatives. Literally left stranded with 15 other people. We were then offered rentals at 3x the price we had reserved through a competitor and had no choice since we had taken a shuttle from the airpor. HORRIBLE.

Great car, not great service.
Pros: Kind of car that I got for the money spent was brilliant.
Cons: Car was dirty on outside when I picked it up. Asked for it to be cleaned before I took it. They rinsed it off, didn't dry it, and I had hard water spots all over the black paint and windows.

Storm damage
Cons: Car was hail damaged, back seat was dirty, carpets needed vacuuming, floor mats were missing. I was given a letter at the gate which apologized for the hail damage but their clerk was insisting that I take damage coverage in spite of the car being in such poor condition. When I returned it no one was there, Avis took posession of the car and their clerk had nothing but bad things to say about payless employees.

Timeliness And Cleanliness
Pros: The close proximity of the rental car pick up/drop off to the airport and major highway.
Cons: it took more than 20 minutes for customers in front of me to receive their vehicle. The agent was very courteous but, not sure why it was so hard to locate a vehicle to rent. Aren't vehicles readily available for customers? And the same happened for me but it only took about 10 minutes. The vehicle I did receive was clean inside and out with the exception of the all the stains on the back and front seats. If I had been traveling with my family I would have demanded another vehicle.

Car Rental Experience
Pros: The car was great, it was better than expected. Drop-off process was quick and easy.
Cons: I chose the rental organization based on the kind of car I wanted. I had specific needs. I worked with two of them and neither company had the car available they pictured in the ad. When I say not available I mean they didn't even offer the car pictured. I spent 4 hours trying to get the right car. That's way too long.

Pros: Check out was a breeze.
Cons: Check in took almost 25 minutes, and there were only two people in front of me. Did not help that only one person was at the counter, nor that the folks in front of me seemed to want to change every thing in their car rental contract. Not fun.
