The car was filthy, was not filled with gas but was expected to be returned as such, and car seat was disgusting, had to buy one from Walmart as it was that bad. Usually when I've rented before in other places locations I have not had these issues. Staff was friendly and attentive.

A very comfortable Hyundai Tucson! Small, compact, with a nice size storage area for 4 people & much luggage!!! I was disappointed that both self checkin kiosks were not functioning at San Juan, PR airport. And where I booked the rental…I had read & was under the impression that all 4 of us could drive at no extra cost. But no…only 2 of us could drive and the extra driver was $10 a day extra. Not major but disappointing.

As I received the car it smelled a little weird, figured it was the cleaner used. As I got further into my trip the following day it smelled worst. There was no power in PR my whole trip but 6 a Hours into my trip and 6 hours before my trip ended. I HAD to spend a lot of time in the car. Unable to reach the ponce enterprise center. Was told I had to speak to them in reference to car rental. Because of the power outage my flight back was canceled and I needed to extend till 4am April 10,2022. Since no available contact in Ponce I was unable to let them know my circumstances. .

They like to make you pay for extras like the insurance and the Sunpass. Everywhere else I’ve rented accepts Amex car rental policy but they said Puerto Rico does not. Almost did not accept my personal car insurance either. If you do not show them your policy, they will not let you decline the insurance.

Pros: Great value for the money Car was clean Shuttle to take you to/from the airport Open 24 hours a day Cons: The line is always long and very SLOW moving-so many people get to the front of the line and have to look for their license or insurance card. Many times I’ve been waiting in line and the customers are standing there calling their insurance company-literally I’ve been there when they are on hold with the insurance co. For more than 10 minutes. Anyhow-the employee should ask them to step aside and come back when they have all of their ducks in a row. But no-the employee stands there waiting 🙄

The Thrifty counter at the airport was closed so we picked up from Hertz. Simple enough. The car was adequate, but the key fob rarely worked and it was frustrating to have to manually open the doors. We were only given one key and the key ring was braided metal with a loose piece that pricked my finger several times. The Corolla may also need brake work as they vibrate when pressed on downhill sections of the highway.

Received unexplained charges, check in was slow, was turned away from the return point and told to go elsewhere.

Terrible customer service. The morning we had to catch a plane home the car wouldn’t start. We got a cab to the airport. I dropped the keys off to thrifty and they charged me over two thousand dollars without explaining anything. They could not have been ruder or less accommodating. After calling their support number I was hung up on once and the second woman was nice but couldn’t help at all. I will never do business with them again.

The car was clean. The staff could have been nicer more respectful. If I rent and pay for a full sized suv I should have received a full sized suv not a compact suv. I was charged the same price for a compact suv when that’s not what I reserved .
1.9 HorribleJul 29 2021
Our flight was delayed and when we arrived after 10 pm. Thrifty had closed for the night. The other agencies were still open but had no cars. Told to come back at 6 AM, so had to rent a hotel room. Came back just before 6. Found the agent. Said there was no car available and that the reservation was canceled. She was annoyed that I wasn’t aware that I needed to call the agency when I knew about the delay. After fruitless back and forth with her and the manager. We regrouped and used a local agency. More expensive for fewer days, plus cost of hotel room. Not very sympathetic agents. I assume because they know their policy sucks and that there hours are unreasonable.

Your reservation will be cancelled if you are more than 1 hour late. If your plane is late, you must call and tell them to “roll your reservation”. I called when my plane was late but apparently didn’t use the magic word. My reservation was then canceled. While I did end up having a car for the weekend. It was not without a lot of calories burned. I feel that Kayak could have better represented the booking. I thought I had paid for a car.

PriceHad to get a $15 cab ride because their shuttle operation. Was not in service. I tried to modify my rental and they did not answer the phone, I dropped off the car and they were not open during their posted hours. Their website said they had no cars available when in reality they were closed for business. I simple phone call could have sufficed. They could have had someone to answer phone calls remotely even if they were closed.

8.0 ExcellentApr 17 2022
When we arrived at the airport around noon, the shuttle appeared quickly right after we picked up our bags. We did not wait for long at the car pickup counter, the checkin process was standard, the only extra thing I had to show was the portion of my car insurance that expressly says Puerto Rico is a part of the covered territories, so we did not have to take additional insurance. The car we got was new and in good condition. In the morning of our flight back, we arrived at the car rental return with about 50 minutes left before departure due to a GPS error, the return was processed very quickly without any issue and the shuttle took us to the terminal immediately so we were on time check in bags and boarding the airplane. Overall it was a positive experience —especially after reading so many negative experiences on various of can rentals in PR. The rental counter did not sell us things we did not need; one thing I suggest renters to get is the enabling of the road toll system at a few dollars a day, as the main roads have electronic toll collections and often don’t give you other payment options.

We reserved a minivan for a family of 6 with luggage. They didn't have the van and didn't really care. It was like that episode of Seinfeld. They provided a small SUV and it took FOREVER! Also, they are NOT located directly at the airport as was stated, rather they are a shuttle ride away. Not the end of the world, but added a few hours on each end of our trip and was totally unexpected. They know once you are there, they have you at their mercy. Spend the extra $$$ and get a real car rental from a legitimate company on the airport grounds.

Kayak and Six gave me a false quote.When I got there, they added mandatory fees & charges that were not mentioned in quote, yet again, they are mandatory & not optional. Also, neither site has updated physical address for Sixt airport location. Actual location is further from airport then what is advertised. When I reached out to kayak, they told me to deal with Sixt, Sixt said it is what it is. They both told me some one would call me back, yet neither did. Expedia has always resolved my issues, so won’t be dealing with either companies anymore, unless they both reach out and correct this problem.

Impossible to use my own insurance wasted my time and I ended up getting a car from Enterprise

1. It's not *at* the airport, so you need to take a 10 minute shuttle. 2. Shuttle appears regularly and was comfy and A/C'd. 3. They hard-sell you additional insurance and EZPass daily charges at checkout. It ended up adding about 20% to our total which completely negated going for an "off-airport" place. I *knew* I should have been more forceful, but the attendant was asking for my full policy papers and there was a line behind me and I had just come off a long flight, so they count on you just giving up. Grrrrr.

I liked that there was an upgraded in my vehicle since they had me waiting for over an hour before I was picked up at the airport. I liked that a ticket was removed which I did not know of having knowledge of for crossing a private bridge. However, I did not like that the windshield pump was damaged and all the windshield fluid was gone. When I bought some if drained quickly because of damaged to the container. This added stress to the trip specially during rainy days. The windshield had a glare that made it difficult to drive even after several cleanings with soap and water. The wipers were not working properly.

2.0 MediocreApr 6 2022
Serious understaffing issues. Don't expect the pickup or dropoff to go quickly or well. Expect there to be problems with the car that are not mentioned because the agents are rushed. Add an 45 minutes to your airport arrival time to account for the delayed shuttle or time spent in line to return your vehicle. Don't feel rushed when picking up. I'd been there so long that I was eager to leave and didn't notice that the driver's side mirror was cracked in half. U-Save noticed and marked it as damage on the car, but there was so much marked that I didn't see it until I drove away. I definitely would've insisted on a car with functioning mirrors (PR traffic is wild. Gotta have mirrors.) Save yourself the hassle. Get a car from a known agency *at the airport* so you don't have to catch a shuttle.

Top tips for renting a car in San Juan

  • Because public transportation is limited and doesn’t go very far, you’ll want to rent a car during your stay in San Juan. A rental car will give you the freedom to explore places on the island, like Cueva Ventana or Arecibo Observatory. Additionally, you’ll be able to better explore much of the nature and picturesque scenery as you drive along the coastal highways. You can also drive through the rainforest – an unforgettable experience.
  • The San Juan Airport (or Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport) is just a few miles from the center of the city. Once you are off the plane, you’ll simply retrieve your rental car from the parking garage, or you can take a shuttle to the rental car desk. This airport provides many options for car rentals including locally own companies like Charlie Car Rental as well as nationally recognized companies such as Hertz or Enterprise.
  • The roads in San Juan can be a little bumpy and rough. Additionally, their narrowness can be somewhat intimidating to tourists. So, you’ll need to drive with caution even though you are sightseeing. Motorcycles are also very common in Puerto Rico, and motorcyclists tend to drive quite fast and will cut in front of you; so beware.
  • During rush hour the traffic can get a little heavy. The morning rush hour typically begins at around 8 a.m. and continues through 9:30 a.m. or so. In the evening, commuters will begin to return home at 4 p.m., which will cause some congestion on the road until around 6 p.m.
