I was promised SUV but they didn't have any. They gave me a mini van, I asked for a discount since minivans were cheaper to book than SUVs, I even showed it to him on right there. I demanded an SUV or better but I was not given. The guy did not even apologize for the inconvenience. it was just take it or leave it. I requested to cancel but they said they can't return money. I have to contact Expedia. I didn't even make reservation through Expedia.   There is no shuttle from the airport to Economy Rent a Car. They said I should have received an Uber code but I never did The car was heavily dinged and I was not comfortable taking a car with so many scratches as they could claim I did some of them at return. Thankfully they did not. Still, I had to take extensive videos The gas tank for 3/4 full. How do you return 3/4 full gas tank? So I ended up losing 1/4 gas by returning full gas. Overall, not a good experience. At a minimum the guy could have been polite and considerate...that was the most disappointing part Will likely not rent from Kayak again since there is no way to ensure I'll get the model I pay for and it's not possible to get refundReviewed Jun 17 2024

When I booked with you all the description said "Unlimited Kilometers" But when I got to the rental car place they said they would not honor that. They tried to charge me another fifteen dollars and change PER day for miles over 150. This is very dissatisfying, they said that it is because Kayak is a third party... It is really disappointing that your listing was wrong and the rental was going to be over three times the price I paid on your website. I always love Kayak and your my first place I look for hotels and cars and flights... but this was bad.Reviewed Jun 17 2024

I didn’t pick up the rental. I called customer service for a refund because we got picked by the wrong ride, we had to stand in line for a long time and they asked for $500 security deposit. I canceled the rental and the customer service staff told me to call the company I booked my reservation with. York rental is a big joke!Reviewed Jun 16 2024

The car I rented before this one in West Palm was the worst experience I ever had in my life and I’ve been running cars for 50 years. And I guess that’s why I was blessed with one of the best experiences I ever had with the car. Pick up was so easy the girls upfront were smart and easy-going. It was really a really relief that this Rental was so smooth.ahhhhhhReviewed Jun 14 2024

Lots of hidden fees. When I booked online it said unlimited mileage and I also purchased CDW (Collision Damage Waiver Insurance) online. When I got to the rental store to pick up my vehicle, I was asked to purchase additional insurance even though I had it covered through my credit card and had a CDW. They also said at the counter that I am not eligible for unlimited mileage as I am a resident of Ontario. I had to pay additional money to cover for the extra mileage driven. They also did not commit to provide me with a ford explorer or similar. I was given a basic 5 seater low end SUV which was very uncomfortable. Negative ratings for economy rent a car. Would never go back.Reviewed Jun 14 2024

Pickup and drop off went well. The car itself needed maintenance, the brakes were worn out, wobbled the vehicle when braking hard, which was critical down the many many hills. The car also shivered over 100kmh. Had about 50k miles on it, but given the roads in Costa Rica those were hard miles.Reviewed Jun 14 2024

Horrible customer service experience. I waited in line for 40 m. They didn’t have the suv. They claimed its system problem. Obviously not as most complained and they booked form different websites. Very unprofessional close to rude attitude and just saying take a standard car( that’s what we have or wait for an hour). Came next day and it was only a jeep compass available.. I said it’s too small and in the pic it’s an explorer or similar. He said that the standard suv and it’s not their web site that put the explorer. The branch manager was extremely rude. Never again with economy. Drop off was quickReviewed Jun 13 2024

Mostly good after I went and Signed paperwork the lady at counter said I receive pic of the damage On the car when I picked it up by email never received them even after 4 calls. The next Morning i saw a lot of scratches all over the car and took my own pic just in case they said I did it. When I dropped the car off they said I would get a emailed copy of receipt after dealing with them and never receive pic I asked for a paper receipt which they did give meReviewed Jun 11 2024

They reserve 1 car online to get you to their location which is a way away from other car rentals. Then they will not have the car you reserved and charge you a higher price for what you do end up gettingReviewed Jun 1 2024
