My reservation didn't exist. We were left stranded.Reviewed Jan 3 2024

Waited for 90 minutes to pick up my car due to an outrageously long line at pick up. Way more customers than the staff could handle. If I could have I would have cancelled my booking and gone to one of the basically empty competitors in the rental center. Once I got to the counter the service was fine.Reviewed Nov 13 2023

Despite being a Dollar Express member with a long rental history, I had to wait an hour in the "main" line at SFO. When I asked about Dollar Express, they said they do participate in that program but they hid the signs because they didn't like having people go into the short line. Not cool.Reviewed Nov 2 2023

Pros:NothingCons:The 2 hour wait to pick up the car and having 1 person on duty killed the enjoyment of the rental.Reviewed May 23 2021

Cons:They ran out of cars, we had to wait over an hour to get a vehicle. And the total cost of the car was over $200 more than quoted.Reviewed May 19 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:Scheduled a 10:00pm pick up. Arrived before 10. The Dollar counter at SFO was closed, and Dollar left us literally stranded at the airport. Luckily the Avis desk was open, but of course they only had SUV’s available.. so my $130 rental turned into a $200 rental and about an about of lost time at the airport. The receptionist at the Avis desk admitted that they (Avis) and most other employees at the rental car desks will commonly leave early well before the stated hours of operation, stranding people at the airport. I politely told her what I thought of her and took my overpriced “SUV” which turned out to be a Ford Escape.. hardly an SUV.Cons:Everything.Reviewed Apr 9 2021

Pros:I was confirm a luxury spot car on reservation. Agent just gave me a premium car instead. When I confront him with my booking email and he said it is their computer error , they never had this category. He said they only have it as prestige group. He could only offer premium to me. When he offer the insurance o me, I said I already purchased the insurance along with my booking. He is not pleasant and said it is the online thing again.Cons:Agent should deliver what it was confirm on booking. They should not down grade customer request.Reviewed Apr 4 2021

Cons:They charged me more than you promisedReviewed Dec 2 2020
review fromkayak
Cons:I feel like the Kayak enticed me by having a nice car, specifically the BMW X3, for a good deal even though it was still a bit more than the lowest-priced SUVs that were available, but when I went to pick it up at Dollar, they said Kayak had messed up and gave me a Nissan Rough instead. I said I had chosen the BMW X3 but the guy from Dollar told me what I paid for wasn't in the BMW price range even though my confirmation email said intermediate SUV.Reviewed Oct 4 2020
