Was allowed to rent a car past the time that the rental car company was open. Flight coming in was delayed so I hopped on different flight to this location, planning on renting a car to drive back home. Ended up being stranded in JFK for a night as I was never able to rent a car and all other places were booked. Had I known renting a car here wasn't possible I probably wouldn't have made flight arrangements this wayReviewed Jul 2 2024

When we got to the car rental place they said there wasn't any cars, we explained that we booked through Expedia and the last was very rude to us. We then booked through hertz and had brilliant customer service and a lovely car. I'd highly recommend Hertz and will be avoiding dollar.Reviewed Feb 21 2024

Pros:We arrived with 4 large bags weighing over 250lbs only to be told they were “out of cars” and they had no idea when more would be available. Didn’t matter at all that we had an existing reservation for an SUV. This caused us major disruption to our trip and a lot of stress. It forced us to take an expensive Uber to our destination and rent a car at a different location at a much higher prices. Will not be booking with Kayak or Dollar again. Truly awful experience.Cons:Keeping reserved cars on the lot. Having decent customer service or even basic humanity skills.Reviewed Mar 22 2021

Cons:We booked through Expedia. My ratings are, by default, "Poor" because we had to cancel our trip due to unforseen complications, we tried multiple times to get ahold of Expedia, and each of the affiliated sites for car rentals. However, after an accumulated 5 hours on the phone and multiple dropped calls, I gave up and said goodbye to nearly $300.Reviewed Feb 18 2021
