Cons:Charging for insurance when I have $500,000/100,000 with a $1,000,000 umbrella policy. Rediculous!! Buyer beware!Reviewed Sep 26 2019

Car rentalPros:Initial price okay, car had great gas mileage.Cons:Upcharged for what they can, just due to using a debit card I had to pay an additional $10 per day. The facility was pretty run down, we couldn't contact the facility for the shuttle, but it did arrive quickly to and from the airport.Reviewed Jun 15 2018

Rundown car, bad info at service counter, felt like I paid hidden feesPros:Didnt like the experience with this company. Only plus was the drive to the airport, which was fast and good.Cons:Didnt like the experience with this company. Nothing was the way it should have been and seemed like a cheap overnight operation. Do yourself a favor and book elsewhere.Reviewed Aug 2 2018

Pros:Car turn-in was short and personnel knew their jobs. Provided a ride to the cruise port.Cons:The FLL agency required a special certificate of insurance if you didn’t buy their insurance. Also attempted to increase price from original booking. Check in took close to an hour with the special requirements not indicated on the reservation sheet.Reviewed Sep 20 2018

Pros:car rental desk people were helpful. Car was clean and in good condition.Cons:I felt I was not made aware that they needed to have the face sheet of my insurance policy otherwise they would have to charge me for liability insurance. fortunately, my insurance company was able to fax a copy of the face sheet of the policy to the car rental company at 9 o'clock on a Saturday evening. There should be an acknowledgement of this important issue when making the reservation and not just a routine "Agree to terms and conditions".Reviewed Jul 12 2018

I must've been lucky...Pros:I had a flat tire on the road (in the Florida Keys). When I returned the car, the inspector said no charge for the flat because there was no wear and tear on the tire. (Which I did baby the car as I drove it.)Cons:HIDDEN FEES!!! This will eat you up if you don't use your own insurance, or a credit card car rental insurance coverage (Chase Sapphire Preferred or Reserve) Must show proof of $300,000 bodily injury. Just call ahead and find out they need. From FLL (Fort Lauderdale), shuttlel to car rental center...then take a van to Economy. (Little bother but could be worse.)Reviewed Mar 3 2018

Poor customer serviceCons:I was a little hesitant to book a car rental through Economy Rent-a-Car, as this company doesn't get great reviews. But given that it's a national company, I booked a rental without needing to pay in advance. We booked a car at the Fort Lauderdale, FL airport. It was a pain that we had to find the bus stop outside of the airport and wait for the Economy shuttle to take us off-site, but we took it in stride knowing that we'd booked an inexpensive rental. However, when we arrived our disappointment continued. The rental agent required that we show proof of insurance, which we found odd since we've never been asked to do this at any other rental agency. Then, the rental agent told us that our car, which was booked 3 weeks prior, was no longer available! Apparently, we did not arrive within the 2-hour window given by Economy to secure our rental, so our rental was unavailable!! There wasn't even any other cars for us! And... here's the kicker... the rental agent confirmed that our car that we had booked had not been given away to another customer, it was simply "no longer available"!!! She was completely unwilling to help us out, and rudely turned us away. (I wonder how many other customers are turned away if they also arrive at the rental place outside of the arbitrary 2-hr 'window' due to late plane arrivals or trouble picking up baggage, etc.). We returned back to the airport and rented a car on-site with Hertz; while Hertz was slightly more expensive, their customer service was great, they gave is no issues (and in fact allowed us to add a 2nd driver at no additional charge since we had our AAA card, and we were able to pick out our own car!) Now I know to spend a little more money for the satisfaction of knowing that a car will be available for me without hassle and that I will be shown respect.Reviewed Feb 23 2018

Horrible car rental experiencePros:Gas mileage was great. The vehicle was clean.Cons:The front end was so miss-alligned the steering wheel constantly wobbled at virtually any speed. It was not an agreeable vehicle to drive. They assess a $10 per day "hidden" insurance handling fee if you have a FL driver's license. This was not disclosed at time of reservation and at 1:00AM at an off airport rental agency, I pressed the issue with the clerk who offered a take it or leave it. This effectively doubled the rental cost. I would NEVER rent from this company again.Reviewed May 13 2018

Hidden ChargesPros:I did like that they took me to the airport terminal directly since my co-traveler was in a wheelchair.Cons:I got there and was going to use my own insurance. I provided my own coverage and then was told I had to pay $1000 for my deductible that if it wasn't used at the end of the trip I would get refunded. Since I don't have that....I had to pay $10 a day for covering that insurance deductible which is not refundable. All of these details where not listed when I booked my rental. When I asked the company about his they said yes that's what they charge...no explanation or anything. I will never use Economy Rental and I will make sure I spread the bad word.Reviewed Aug 22 2018
