4.8 OkayAug 30 2020
Pros: Not many people thereCons: Allowed to make a reservation but there were no cars available. Told to come in later that day, came back and was again told no cars available even though there were several in the lot. If there are no cars available do not allow someone to make a reservation.
6.4 GoodSep 4 2019
Pros: The car was great - clean, ran well. Pickup went smoothly, etc.Cons: I called customer service on my way to return to set up a ride home and was treated to the absolute WORST customer service team in my life,in any business. "Tony",as he insisted on being called (as he refused to give his full name or number) has "I'm telling you like it is" as his mantra. Horrible.
2.0 MediocreAug 7 2019
Pros: NothingCons: They did not have the car I reserved and would not help me in any way. They gave me no notification so I walked all the way there. They wouldn’t bring a car from another location. And they wouldn’t even give me a ride home. Will never rent from them again!
7.6 GoodMay 28 2019
Pros: Unfriendly staffCons: Staff
9.6 ExcellentFeb 23 2019
Pros: Very clean car.Cons: Nothing. Very good overall.
2.0 MediocreDec 4 2018
Cons: I will never use Hotwire again to make a reservation of any kind, and I will tell everyone I know to do the same.
9.2 ExcellentAug 1 2018
Pros: We thought we had rented at the airport but it was actually at a nearby rental center. Avis airport personnel were not helpful and pushed a hard sell for products we didn't need. When we arrived (by taxi) at the correct spot, the man behind the counter was extremely helpful and pleasant. He checked us in and got us on our way quickly.
6.8 GoodJul 18 2018
No available carsPros: speed at counterCons: didn't have any cars available at the requested location or anywhere in a 20 mile radius. also didn't honor price on the online reservation.
7.6 GoodJun 3 2018
Pros: Attendant was excellent.Cons: Didn't realize the office closed at 1:00. We were lucky and made it just in time.

7.6 GoodOct 8 2018
DisappointedCons: We booked a car online for you pick up at 9am only to find out the car would not be available until 1pm. We were moved to a different dealership but still had to pick up the car 2 hours late. We were then told we could not extend our rental as we were going to be late dropping off the car on the same day due to picking it up 2 hours late. We were driving from LA to SAN Francisco and due to the delay we missed out seeing tourist spots along the drive. Overall very disappointed with this service.
2.0 MediocreJun 19 2017
Cons: 1.5 hour wait for cars, huge line
6.0 GoodMay 13 2017
Cons: They charge you too much for gas, almost more than I paid for the car rental, i used only quarter of tank, and they charged me $70. There is no specific way to measure the gas used, whatever the person who check the car decide what to pay, so I recommend to put gas before the drop off
4.0 OkayApr 13 2017
too longCons: Waited 20 minutes for shuttle. Waited 15 more minutes at location.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2017
scamCons: i thought i was booking a car @ LAX as that it what it put in location. But, the rental location was in studio city, 45-60 mins away. not knowing the area, i assumed it was at LAX. i had to rent a car from another company @ LAX - my Budget rental was non-refundable so i was scammed out of $300 and was a huge nightmare finding another car. i won't book again on Kayak
2.0 MediocreOct 30 2016
They did not have my reservation; I had to make aCons: They lost my reservation, so I had to make a new one and pid more than double the kayak quoted price.
8.4 ExcellentOct 25 2016
Deal on a one way rentalPros: Nice drive up CA 1 with the scenery, and a one way flight back. Car was comfortable, nothing fancy KIA Forte, but no issues during the trip.Cons: The tire gauge light was on when I picked up and stayed on throughout the trip. Car had 24K miles on it, I like rental cars with newer cars.
8.0 ExcellentOct 19 2016
Great deal on a one way rental.Pros: Ease of pick up and drop off. It was a great deal and Kia Forte is a good car for 3 days, although I have no desire to own or drive one. Car did the one way 500 mile trip and I was happy.Cons: Pick up was a little out of the way for me but not an issue. Tire pressure indicator was on from pick up.
2.0 MediocreJul 12 2016
DisasterPros: NothingCons: Everything
3.6 MediocreJul 8 2016
Rip offCons: You charge an additional fee to extend your rental. I have never been charged that before and it's awful. Why charge a returning customer more money to keep renting your car. It's like a messed up bank fee. I will never use your company again.
