Excellent experience all the way around!Pros: They took great care of us! The manager, Steve went above and beyond.

Great longer-term rentalPros: Need a large vehicle for a month. Most affordable options were off-brand rental agencies with very old (10+ years) vehicles.

2.0 MediocreAug 31 2018
Received booking confirmation, but there was no vehicle available.Cons: I was relying on having a vehicle, and at the last minute I was left with nothing. All they offered was the phone number of a rental place over 20 miles away. I will never book through carrentals.com again. Forget Kayak (the UI sucks anyway). Book direct, it’s the only way to go.

Budget car rental was greatPros: No extra charges for pick up/drop-off at different locations in same area. No fee for wife to drive as well. Chrysler was fuel efficient and performed well. Overall, a very good experience
5.6 OkayDec 9 2015
Pros: Good vehicleCons: Too expensive for a daily rental. Additionally, I was overcharged when I returned the vehicle at LAX. I had to go to adjustment desk and have charges corrected reducing my bill by over $100. Not a positive experience.
