Cons: Tax that was being charged at the Airport was not included in the price listed on Kayak. We were really shocked to find out how much the total would be with the tax added.

Hyundai Accent from Dollar Rent A Car
Pros: Rented an Accent for a short stay in Tucson. Great little around town car. Dollar's computers were down when we arrived, but they had us on our way in 15 minutes even doing everything by hand.
Cons: The only negative was that the car was a little difficult to see out of to the rear. Pretty typical for a sub-compact.
Dec 1 2015
Cons: Agent, without telling me, tried to up grade me. The cost went from $135 to $265. Fortunately I noticed and insisted on the $135 rate. He then tried for something about 1/2 way between. I again insisted on the quoted rate and got it. You have to pay attention!

DO NOT rent a car from Dollar Rent A Car located i
Pros: NOT A THING!
Cons: This place is a joke. I was told that I had rented a compact car and the Dollar agent kept trying to upgrade me. After each upgrade offer, I asked if he was offering it at the rental price that I had been originally quoted ($90.88). Of course not! After about 20 minutes of my back-and-forth with the agent, my husband went to the National Car Rental counter next door and rented a 2016 Dodge Journey for the same amount of the Dollar "compact" car. What a crappy way to conduct business, Dollar.

Pros: reasonably cheap
Cons: Car was streaked with dirty water, some water spots/dirt inside the cabin also. Price was much more than originally quoted (almost double)
Aug 31 2016
Pros: The miles per gallon was the only thing good
Cons: Everything else was terrible, Dollar told me they where giving me a full size car and gave me a midsized car, the car had damage to it, the inside of the car was clean outside was dirty
Cons: Nobody at the service desk when we arrived
Nobody "checked out the car" so damages could not get recorded
It was next to impossible to get someone on the phone to advise Alamo of existing scratches on the car

Pros: Staff was very understanding and helpful.
Cons: The heat in the parking lot lol.

Denied rental over a debit card and accused of att
Cons: I did not like being accused of fraud and having a manager insinuating I was a car thief. Renting a smart car for three days to travel between Tucson and Phoenix does not seem to be a likely profile for thieves but I wouldn't know. All in front of my 13 yo son. Producing a printed itinerary is not a substantial security measure. Because my itinerary did not fit a profile I was rudely left to find other options and then during another attempt to rent from enterprise the same manager appeared from behind a door and interrupted my transaction and told the employee I was attempting to defraud them. Not true. I will NEVER EVER RENT FROM ALAMO OR THE SISTER COMPANIES EVER AND I WILL DO MY DAMNDEST TO RELATE MY EXPERIENCE TO OTHERS. Alamo is lucky not to be facing litigation about the suggestion by your management that I was attempting to obtain goods or services under false pretenses with the intention of theft or malfeasance.
Pros: Services, counter person were nice. When I broke the car I rent they changed the car smoothly the
Cons: Car choice was limited. I wanted to rent small cars like Yaris. I reserved well in advance but I was assigned Ford Fusion and Toyota Camry. They are nice cars but I didn't like the.

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. I think Andy was his name. He was there at both check in and check out.

No pickup/drop off at airport
Cons: We called for a pickup and they said we had to take a taxi. We asked why, everyone else who was off site picked up customers and had drop off. They said their service saved you money by eliminating on site charges. OK so you don't pay onsite charges, but you pay high taxi charges, have to add extra time when returning to airport because you have to get another taxi to get to airport. I ended up NOT using this rental and used the onsite Rental. Enterprise Rentals were so much better, Great customer service, Very outgoing. Never again AVIS
Pros: Flight cancelled, so the reservation was cancelled. Budget handled the cancellation well - good customer service.
Nov 17 2015
Pros: once I was checked in, all was good.
Cons: When the counterperson would not take debit cards, each of the three people ahead of me in line took 10-15 min to process (and this was at 11 p.m. and I was tired)...Please notify folks that they cannot use their debit card (unless they want to stand there for 10 min. while a credit check is run and creates a negative score on their credit report) OR accept the debit card like the rest of the world.

A/C in Arizizona didn't work on the highway
Pros: Renal in Tuscon was great. Very friendly, helpful.
Cons: The A/C was working great when I left Tucson, but as I went North to Phoenix, the air flow started getting very week and it started getting very hot inside the car. I was thinking I would need to pull over. When I got off the freeway and back into city driving, the air started to flow again. Not a great experience for Arizona driving. The temp was 99F.

Kayak wasn't clear on where we were renting the ca
Cons: Somehow kayak let us rent a car from an airfield base and the only reason we were able to get on base because we just so happen to bring on our trip out government I.d. Otherwise we would've been out of luck and wasted $30 on a cab ride from the airport to the rental place! Kayak needs to be clear on the description of this enterprise!
requested ford escort and was offered a Ford fiest
Pros: Drop and pickup convenient
Cons: Car smelled bad and was forced to upgrade because fiesta was to small. Escort was not available and had to go with a VW jetta.
Dec 31 2015
Pros: I got in and out quickly at both pick-up (TUS) and drop-off (PHX) locations.
Cons: I was overcharged for the amount of gas I used, and the car was not clean (dust and dirt was noticeable on the dash and in various side and cupholder compartments, the floors were dirty and worn down, there were multiple stains on the seats, and the exterior was unclean).
