10.0 ExcellentFeb 18 2020
Pros: Friendly staff.Cons: Better disclosure regarding required coverage. Would have also rented a vehicle with more horse power given that I explored way outside of the city.

2.0 MediocreApr 19 2018
Cons: The day was supposed take the car they wasn’t even open bad service and irresponsible company!
2.0 MediocreFeb 19 2018
Pros: N/ACons: Alamo did not honor the vehicle level i had reserved. I reserved a Kia Rio or equivalent and when i got there i was offered a Kia Picanto an told me that they were the same level. Defínete Kia Picanto is a smaller vehicle. They told me that if i wanted a Kia Rio i had to pay an upgrade. My reservation clearly said Kia Rio and i show my reservation. I didn’t pick up my vehicle and had to rent a vehicle with another agency. It was a very bad experience and had to spend more than what i had planned. I saw other custommers having the same issues, not a good practice.
10.0 ExcellentMay 23 2017
Pros: They were really helpful and friendly
8.8 ExcellentMar 27 2017
Very friendly staff, but not so good carsPros: Staff was very friendly and prompt to help meCons: they did not have the type of car I requested so they upgraded me to a minivan, I was told that the insurance that KAYAK offered was not good enough for them and that I had to take their insurance.
4.8 OkayMar 6 2017
Unsatisfactory limited infoPros: May be the drop off personnel was a lot friendlier than pick up. I was Not aware of all the fees they make you pay in order to rent..That was only revealed at the counter at pick up time (In a very imperative manner). The airport and the car rental lot is at a considerably long distance. That information was not revealed until pick up time.Cons: Counter Personnel attitude at pick time
9.2 ExcellentJan 14 2017
I'm bought in on a versaPros: De car was clean it was bit of a small mission to find it. Love the car was ready for us it very fuel efficient.Cons: Only thing the passenger side rear door the lining kept coming of an a versatile to me is not a full size car.

6.0 GoodMar 24 2021
Pros: Everyone was amazing at the store, service was great and they even picked-up my car without any additional fee since I was feeling sick and couldn't drive the car there.Cons: Car was in really poor shape, locks didn't work correctly. Could hardly get out of the passengers side, it took about 4-5 tries every time to open the door. Dangerous if we had ever gotten into an accident.

8.8 ExcellentFeb 3 2020
Pros: Staff was very friendly and thorough in inspecting the car, telling us where the emergency equipment was, fluids in the car, etc.Cons: The security deposit was really high at $1600, likely because it was in a different country and a bigger vehicle. I was also not allowed to decline the insurance. There was a mandatory insurance of $13.99/day. The other option that coverage everything was $32/day.
10.0 ExcellentMar 9 2019

Budget El Salvador did not have available the vehiPros: Terrible customer service to say the least!Cons: Did not have available the type of vehicle I had reserved through Kayak. They offered me a lower class vehicle for the same price. They wanted force me to buy a local insurance policy, advising me that Allianz insurance was not valid in El Salvador. I was very angry and disappointed and did not take the car.

2.0 MediocreDec 31 2018
Won’t rent from national ever again!Pros: Nothing! Worst experience everCons: Rep tried forcing me to buy insurance after telling her that my credit card cover insurance. After going back and forth and I finally agreed to buy insurance cause I just wanted to get it over with. The rep refused to rent me the car afterwards. On top of that, they did not have the car I had reserve wich was a minivan. Whats the point of making a reservation if you’re not going to have the car you specifically reserved? Will never ever bother with national. And will not recommended to anyone.

Pros: es una basura mala antencion en el salvador
7.6 GoodNov 4 2016
Cons: I ordered a automatic transmission and when I got there they rented out my reserved van, and gave me a 5 speed which was difficult to drive with my leg injury. And I brought the van back early and they said I would have a credit instead of refunding me the $108 This is the first time I have rented with Alamo national in El Salvador and it would be my last,
