Cons: Didn't realize the extra fees for liability were charged per day. That ended up being way too high.

Great price and helpful staff
Pros: After getting an outrageous quote for a rental car directly through a rental company, I decided to try Kayak. Kayak was great! I was able to obtain a rental vehicle for $400 less than my original quote. I was able to get a vehicle from Avis that was just what we had hoped for. The Avis staff was friendly and helpful both at pick up and return.
I will definitely use them again.

Cons: They did not have the car we reserved, and were going to charge me extra to upgrade to something that they had on the lot. They should have waived that fee given that they didn't have the car we reserved.

Cons: Renting a car in New Mexico was expensive, even for an economy size.
Had to taxi to/from airport.
Pros: At Kayak, we had straightforward car rental booking and the pricing and the car availability were good.
The Hertz rental agent in Santa Fe was friendly and helpful and worked hard to help everyone as quickly as he could despite some tech challenges.
The rental car and car return were super easy to get to and find (such a tiny airport!).
Cons: After looking at Kayak, we attempted to look at the Hertz site directly and it was confusing and inconsistent in what it said was available.
Somewhere I thought I read we'd have to take a shuttle to get our rental car which wasn't the case and was a bit confusing in trying to line up our plans and estimate our arrival time at our host's house.

"make and model not guaranteed", but thats what I
Pros: Good gas mileage
Cons: I requested a Nissan Sintra and received a Toyota Yaris. Bad start to hear my purchase was not guaranteed, because I tend to request things that actually fit my need. My luggage could not fit in the trunk which meant we had to keep it in the back seat where it could have gotten stolen. Therefore we were worried about theft half of the trip and trying to cover everything and put valuables under seats. The Yaris is also too small for the freeway driving we were doing. It felt like a death trap because they gave a car with a tire leak and when the car picks up speed the tires are so small that they have a tough time having a solid grip on the road. Very disappointed and felt unsafe.

Thank you again for all you did.

No car available!!
Cons: While I had a confirmation number, I did not have a car. The local agency called me very belatedly to let me know it would be in my best interest to formulate a "back-up" plan as they did not have a car available for me.

Santa Fe drop off problem
Pros: The 2nd Hertz office I went to was very helpful
Cons: The first address I was given from my reservation was 20 buffalo thunder trail and that is not a manned hertz location. It was a casino and the people that worked in the casino said there was not a hertz there.
Cons: Although I was able to book a reservation and obtain car insurance through Kayak, Budget denied my debit card. Therefore I was unable to rent the car. It shouldn't be possible to book a reservation and then be denied car rental.
