rip offWe got to LAX and discovered we were at the wrong rental facility, then when we transferred the rental to the LAX facility the price of the rental nearly tripled. tThey would not honor the quoted price!!

Rentals need to update equipmentNon of the many computers Enterprise had in two locations could read a credit card chip. My swipe was damaged so I had to go to a small local agency that not only overcharged me but opened 20 minutes late causing me to miss my plane.

Staff was great. It would have been helpful to know this lot was not at the airport, which is what I queried when selecting the rental service.
4.8 OkayAug 30 2020
Not many people thereAllowed 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.

The car was great - clean, ran well. Pickup went smoothly, etc.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.

NothingThey 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!

I will never use Hotwire again to make a reservation of any kind, and I will tell everyone I know to do the same.

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.

DisappointedWe 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.

1.5 hour wait for cars, huge line
6.0 GoodMay 13 2017
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

too longWaited 20 minutes for shuttle. Waited 15 more minutes at location.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2017
scami 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

Deal on a one way rentalNice 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.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.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.Pick up was a little out of the way for me but not an issue. Tire pressure indicator was on from pick up.

Rip offYou 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.
