I like that after completing the paperwork, that you get to pick the car you want to rent/drive. What I don’t like is all the hidden San Francisco fees that California and San Francisco squeezes out of tourist to get money that has nothing to do with the rental.

Peter assisted us when picking up the vehicle at the inside counter. He is incredible! Friendly, welcoming, and personable; chatting with him was a great way to start our trip!

Alamo did ok but their SFO location is NOT user friendly. I guess the opposite of that is something like ‘hassle-heavy,’ which is neither funny nor clever…but it’s the best I can do after moderate to heavy drinking.
10.0 ExcellentOct 26 2021
overall great experience! i just think that the fees are far too high (not expressed in the original rate) and the Toll Pass convenience charge seems overkill. other than those value issues, we once again had a great experiences with Alamo and would rent from them again.

Great selection of cars. Easy to pick up. Easy return. And easy extension if you think it's necessary.
4.0 OkayFeb 26 2022
We requested an eight passenger vehicle but was given a seven passenger with no options for upgrade or swap out. The employees at pick up didn’t care or make any attempt to help find an alternative option. We were willing to drive to another location to swap out cars, but we weren’t given any options other than the car they had. What could have gone better? Giving us the car we reserved. We ended up needing to find an additional vehicle to continue our trip and doubling our expenses.

The agent first could not get my reservation then we’re u pick up car is so dark and the agent and I did not see the driver side front bumper had big gap to the side of front bumper. I did not get in to accident or got hit or hit on that side the bumper would be hanging or damaged there was none of that.

I liked Althea the car attendant. She was super friendly and helpful with my needs. She checked me in, took me to the car. Helped me with my suitcase. Showed me the little features about how to drive the car because I never seen the type of car dials before. She was all around cool. Give that girl a raise.

No credit card? No rentalI’m local to the area, and without a round trip airline ticket, they would not let me rent a vehicle with my debit card.
4.8 OkayAug 4 2017
Car was dirty, dented, and overdue for an oil change.Was hard to see in the dark garage, but once you got into the sunlight you could see a few dents, and also how dirty the car was. Then, a few miles in the car started saying it was overdue for an oil change, that makes me wonder how well they check these cars over when it's already OVERdue! Not too thrilled about it.

Don't buy insurance through kayakI bought the insurance through kayak when I requested the rental car and then at pick up the national person tried to get me to buy more insurance because the insurance I got wasn't valid. Everyone tries to rip you off.

Car was fineCar was fine. Wish it had a cd player for books on CD. Otherwise it was the right car for my tripThe San Bruno office feels like a fly-by-night store front operation. I waited 25 minutes to get my car and the agent at the desk kept saying 5 minutes. She was listening to a conference call training while I waited. I learned about how Hertz wants to handle car damage challenges from clients. Fascinating. No magazines or water. The walls are dirty too. When I dropped off the car nobody was in the office. I banged on the door that led to their garage. Eventually a guy came out and took my car keys. No receipt. He had me write down my email. It felt very unprofessional.

Car in SFOOnline reservation process was easy: once we were helped the process of picking up car was simple and liked the car.Had to wait in line for quite awhile when picking up car. Only two agents available. When it was finally our turn though, the agent was very helpful and professional.

5.6 OkayMar 27 2017
Incorrect informationMy husband booked my car in advance online. When I arrived at the pickup at SFO, the agent took three times as long as the agents around her. In addition, she claimed the cost was going to be $170+ when we booked for a rate of $70. I brought this to her attention, but she claimed fees and taxes brought the cost up. She also said the car had to be returned that day by 6:00. We later discovered we could not return the car that day and that we would only be charged $90. Totally unnecessary worry thanks to an impatient and incorrect agent.
6.0 GoodMar 20 2017
the car was fine, the rental experience was less tthe car was clean and the price was decentthe customer service, particularly at check in, was sadly lacking. I was in line for an agent when an employee told several of us to step out of line to use the kiosks. Since I had a reservation, I assumed this would be an automated process, so it made sense. But no, it was just a video conference line to other agents, who did not answer. So, we stood at the kiosks for 20 minutes, waiting while the people who had stayed in line got served. Not one of us at the kiosk even got a response. Finally, we went back into line- the back of the line- which by now was considerably longer. An agent spent a further 20 minutes fooling with the kiosks, instead of getting behind a desk to help the now stacked up customers. when we got to the desk- it took an inordinate amount of time, especially given that I had a reservation. I wanted to add a driver. The agent told us that the second driver would have to sign up at the exit gate (not true) - no one said anything about tolls, so when we crossed the bay bridge we were left wondering if we should pay cash, or the rental car would be charged.... directions to the car in the garage were abysmal- which I know sounds petty, but when your 71/2 months pregnant and schlepping luggage just makes a poor impression worse. returning it was easy enough, we'll see what happens with tolls. It was nothing catastrophic, but overall, it just left a bad enough taste that i'll try another agency for my next trip.

The car.The staff of SFO hertz led by the leader of the worst, the supervisor (name tag not worn) Shirley. I can imagine why she wouldn't wear a name tag because it makes it easier to identify her. She was dismissive, rude, condescending and unhelpful. Which is why her staff was busier taking to themselves than helping people. And when they do help people, they're a lot like Shirley. Bad. Very bad.

Stranded at 1 a.m.I didn't appreciate the Hertz company policy that allows you to reserve a car with a debit card only to be denied that car when you arrive with that card, a pre-paid credit card, and plenty of cash. The Hertz company should not allow you to reserve a vehicle with a formore of payment they won't accept. I am very displeased and will ensure that none of my family or friends will ever use this rental company. I will do everything in my power to vilify them to the fullest extent.Customer service was laughable, how can you have an office full of people at 1 in the morning when your only job is to look up a name, accept payment and tell them "the keys are in it, just go pick one." Ridiculous.

We have rented from Sixt before and have been happy with everything. This time, we had to cancel. We were traveling and away from our computer so it was difficult to do this on line. We couldn’t find a simple way to “modify” our reservation, nor could we be assured that our reservation was, indeed, cancelled when doing it over the phone. When we were finally able to reach a real,person, and he said he was unable to cancel our reservation even though we had a confirmation number. A few days later, we were able to e-mail the company and that worked. Not an easy process.

The check in and the check out were seamless. Amazingly not a gazillion people in line so the wait checking in was just fine. Both persons - check-in, check-out couldn't have been nicer. I love me a good car so Sixt is the place to go if you want a BMW, Infiniti, etc.
