Key fob battery died and there was no way to lock the doors. Hertz drop at LAX was a bit chaotic. Hertz pickup at SMF was very good.

I ordered a 3hour rent juatto get from Sacramento airport to San Francisco airport. Then I realized tat I was supposed to droo it off at another SF location despite my specifixation of the two airports. Now Hertz wish to xharge me another 90usd for the fact I left it at the airport

I really liked the comfort of the car! Compact car would have been better on gas ⛽️ price, but comfort at the end wins the overall satisfaction of the entire rental!

The staff at pick up excellent. Dropping of the car was a nightmare. No attendance at the office had to run around until I was able to find the drop off on the 6th floor. Could have better signs indicating where the return office was on the 6th floor.
2.0 MediocreAug 2 2022
At time of drop-off I was not notified of location discrepancy and thus charged $127.32 without any notification/acknowledgment/confirmation/receipt
2.0 MediocreJul 11 2022
Terrible and confusing customer service experience I caught Covid and they had me on the phone for hours while feeling miserable and completely unable to solve my problem which was very easy: I just needed to return the car to a different nearby location (Oakland airport instead of Berkeley ) and have my wife drop the car off for me instead. It was absolutely confusing ridiculous and altogether a terrible experience. I can’t recommend hertz to anybody
2.0 MediocreJun 2 2022
We verbally declined paying extra to have the car refueled by Hertz, but they said we accepted and listed it on the receipt under an obscure hidden fee. We returned the car with a full tank of gas but they charged us $87 to refill the gas and refused to refund us. Never using Hertz again.
10.0 ExcellentMay 5 2022
Everything went great and smooth. Finding the car return area signs were the only minor issue. We found the lot no problem but finding the return area was.

The staff at the Dollar counter was really nice and communicative. Because of the general car and staff shortage currently in the US, we (and most of the people we saw in the car rental waiting area) had to wait hours for our cars. There wasn’t much space to sit and wait, so many of us were standing. The bathrooms were under construction and on the other side of the terminal. There also wasn’t a loudspeaker, so if you went outside for a minute to get some air or went to the bathroom, there was a risk of missing the agent calling your name to let you know your car was ready.

I made a mistake in making my reservation and picked the wrong week. About an hour after I realized it, I contacted you all and you were ABSOLUTELY no help in moving to the previous week but were able to charge me anyway. I didn't rent from you then nor will I in the future. You clearly don't know what happened as you are sending me this survey on a rental that never happened. How about a refund and do the right thing.

Billing was a little weird, they charged airport fees and taxes separate from the Kayak rental so it seemed like a hidden fee.
10.0 ExcellentJun 9 2022
Our only problem was at pickup, we waited over a hour for our car to be delivered to us. Than they had the wrong car ready for us. We had ordered a mid size suv, & gave me keys to a Rouge. They did correct it, we were given a Ford Explorer, which was a great car. I was really impressed with the Chechen in service when we returned it.

I would have appreciated someone to mark the dents on the car/cigarette smoke in the cabin (instead, I was told to mark them myself, and tell the employee at the receiving Budget Rental facility at the end of my place (different return) that they could call the originating Budget for "verification" even though they refused to mark anything in an official record). I found the overall price paid to be higher than what I was charged. They also refused to accept my auto insurance as coverage, requiring me to take full liability if something happened to the car. Very frustrating. Would not recommend.
10.0 ExcellentOct 30 2022
The cat we originally picked up did not have good fuel economy. We drove it for 3 days and then rang Budget to ask about exchanging it. They said take it in to Sacramento airport desk and they will sort it. We did this and the gentleman at the counter could not have been more helpful. We picked a Hyundai Elantra and it was perfect for our trip down south to the Grand Canyon and southern national parks. Full marks to Budget for their customer service and no hassle car hire.

Only complaint was the long initial line... Dropoff was a breeze.
2.0 MediocreOct 10 2022
The first car I was given was smaller than I reserved because the orignal had not been cleaned yet. However, the one I was given was full of ants. I didn’t notice until the drive to my office, but by the time I arrived there I didn’t have time to return. Luckily I ended a meeting early allowing me to return for a new car and was given one actually in my class. This was a major hassle for me and made me late in leaving for my trip, not to mention having to spray to kill the ants in the first car I was given.
6.0 GoodAug 30 2022
I had reserved a pickup truck and it wasn't available. But they did give me an suv. Then when I wanted to return the car they never emailed me any type of a receipt and I requested it. And the lady that did the check-in was very rude to me and I wasn't happy with her

The line was really really long with one agent working. I ended up going over to Alamo and got a car from them. Very disappointing to have paid for the car, but the poor agent left alone was very poor planning and staffing for Thrifty. My reviews are all not good, but reality is I never got a car from Thrifty due to the long line and wait time.

When I hve a reservation for 2pm p/u, arrive at the counter at 1:50pm, and am told I may have to wait for a while because they have no cars in my rental class ready, I get little miffed. After I declined to accept that scenario, the rep located another vehicle to expedite my departure.

6.0 GoodNov 15 2021
The associates at the pick up were very friendly and the service was quick! What was disappointing about it was I purchased insurance from a company on their rental site, then was told that they didn't accept that insurance!?? Sooo I bought a policy that they don't honor. I called the "insurance" company but after golding for 15 minutes decided to hang up ( not how I wanted to start my vacation)! Also, the car that I "thought" I was getting was no longer available and was given a mediocre car with dirty windows. The unlimited mileage is a good thing though...

The car I got was low on oil and needed service. After driving to my hotel in Los Angeles I called emergency roadside service and they told me to drive it to LAX (40min away at night or 1hr+ in the day) to switch cars. Payless won’t come swap the car out for you. I decided to go in the middle of the night even though I was exhausted because my day was too busy. Roadside service told me it was open 24hrs but it wasn’t! Afterwards I couldn’t get through to them on the phone so I just drove the car for another day. When I turned the car in I told the person what happened expecting some sort of price break for the trouble. Instead I got a lecture about how I should have brought the car back to them right away. Never again would I rent a car from them.
4.0 OkayMay 11 2022
Pick up in Sacramento went very well. The actual pick up was through the Budget Counter. Pick up was organized, friendly and ready upon arrival. The actual car however had some safety issues that I felt should have been addressed before renting. 1. Tires--the tread on the passenger tires had been so worn, that you could not see the raised lettering of the tire name. And to think I traveled from Lake Tahoe to Reno in a snowstorm on those tires does not sit well with me. 2. The hood almost looked like it was opened because of the gap on the driver side. It seemed twisted. 3. There was blue tape on the bottom of the bumper indicating the previous driver had scraped the side. 4. I had 600 miles until the oil needed changed. I have never gotten into a rental car where I had a warning that the oil needed changed. I feel these were serious issues that put my family in danger. When I addressed that with the drop off location--it did not seem serious to them and they felt that it was just the car. I will pay the higher cost for a safer car for the next rental.

This was the worst rental experience I've ever had!!! Didn't have what I requested. Gave me a car with no spare tire. Left me stranded on the side of the road with two flat tires. Roadside assistance didn't pick me up for over nine hours! Then had to drive me 2.5 hours back to the airport. Didn't arrive until 2:30 am! Where I slept in the back seat. Being at the airport 7 hours before my flight!!! I will never book a car through kayak or payless and will make sure nobody else in my friends or family does either!

Car was clean and ready to goI reserved a "Suppliers Choice" price and was disappointed. When I called the Sacramento office the day before, the rep said most likely I would get a small SUV or mini-van as that's what they had the most of...and that's what I would most likely get... If I had know it was going to be an economy car (Accent), I would have booked it directly in that class and saved some money! Never again!

Great valueWe got a great deal with this rental. Car worked out great and was as expected. Drop off was excellent too, fasts and rep was really friendly.On arrival/pickup we did not have a good interaction with the rep. He was very confusing, stating that our vehicle did not have 4wd and wanted to upgrade me and charge me more. This was frustrating as I had called prior to booking to try to secure a 4wd vehicle. I decided against the additional upgrade and he still wanted to charge me more $ even though I had already prepaid and looked at me like I was crazy when I told him he prepaid. Fortunately we got in the car and there was a 4wd function as had been advertised.
6.8 GoodMar 8 2017
Less than promised- not a Toyota RAV4 but a 2WD JeWhen our car was unsafe to make it over the mountain pass in snow, a local Enterprise dealer allowed us to drop it off without crossing the mountains. He suggested that we might get a more snow-worthy vehicle from Enterprise, but we did not pursue that and found alternate transportation.We expected and needed a 4WD SUV. The car provided at Sacramento was not that, and getting the type of vehicle we expected required an upgrade. So we took what was provided. But when it was time to return the car, the mountain passes required either 4WD or chains and we did not have that. Our rental was billed as RAV4 or "similar"..but similar meant just another vehicle of similar size, not one that performs as well.
6.0 GoodMar 4 2017
The car was nice and the price affordable. It was only a short shuttle from the airport. The people at the drop-off were also super nice.The pickup was not pleasant. My flight had been delayed for four hours and I was sick, so I was exhausted and not feeling well when I arrived since I also had not eaten much all day. I was told the car was going to be driven around the side of the building for me to pick up. They handed me the keys, told me it was some kind of Nissan and didn't say the color or anything. I walked around the side of the building and a BUNCH of cars had been driven up, including a Nissan that was not my car. I couldn't find my car. I had to walk back around the building and the counter staff seemed annoyed I needed help. I was almost in tears at this point because I was so tired. I just needed a little help and kindness. It turned out the car had not been driven up and was across the parking lot. The guy walked me halfway too it then handed me the keys and made a vague gesture before turning back to the building without a word.
8.4 ExcellentFeb 27 2017
Staff at Location Was Great, Phone Support Not SoMy flight got delayed past the time they were supposed to close. Some of the other rental places in the same building were closed and people weren't able to get their vehicles. Alamo stayed open at least an hour past closing time to help out, and if they minded staying late for work I would have never noticed. Very friendly, great service.The phone support was pretty poor. The first lady I talked to before my flight left was friendly and polite, but all she could tell me was "They usually stay open if flights are delayed, but it's Friday night, so it depends..." What does that even mean? Anyway, she said she'd put a note on my rental saying that I'd be arriving late, and she told me to call back as soon as I got in. I called Alamo's main support number again as soon as I landed, but the guy on the phone insisted that they'd be closed since it was a little after their listed closing time. I already knew their listed closing time, I explained, but the lady I talked to before my flight had said they would probably stay open a little later so maybe he could check for me? He gave me a number for the local branch so I could try to call them (apparently he couldn't put me on hold and do it himself because that would've been too helpful). It rang through to voice mail twice, but the message didn't mention Alamo at all. I assume he gave me the wrong number, or maybe I wrote it down wrong (it wouldn't have mattered if he'd just called them for me like a decent customer service person would do). So now I was pretty sure I was screwed. I called back to the main number and got the same guy, and he was totally unhelpful again. All I wanted at that point was anything helpful about what I could do if they were closed (could I cancel, get a discount, sleep on the floor in the rentals building, or what?), but the only thing he told me was "you can go there tomorrow morning when they open." Even if he couldn't help, a little bit of understanding or politeness would've been great, but no such luck. Maybe if I'm being generous it wasn't the worst customer service I've ever had, but if so it wasn't by much. Thankfully the guy didn't know what the hell he was talking about and they were still open so it didn't matter.

The system seemed very unorganized. Agent had to run back and forth to car lot multiple times to get keys. First car he got for us was apparently already rented. No inspection was done upon check out, this is a huge RED FLAG. It was up to us to go over the car and markup the damage report in a dark parking lot with little light after waiting forever in line. Upon return the agent was very critical of every piece of damage. Luckily we had caught everything and had marked it on the inspection form.

I had preciously rented an all whell drive suv and they confirmed over phone it was, but when I get there they tell me ita 2wheel drive and will cost 165% of my original reservation tk get a all wheel drive vehicle, not even 4x4. Just terrible business practice.

Up Sold, under deliveredThat I made it safe in the snowstormSince there was a big storm, I called ahead to confirm SUV had 4x4 or all wheel drive and was told most had all wheel drive and it wouldn't cost more than $20/day for 4wheel drive. That said, I did not cancel and book a 4x4 at similar price with another rental company. When I arrived the prices got much higher and told no SUV's have al wheel drive, so I was forced to buy a more expensive vehicle and it was a very dated old jeep. I paid 165% of the original booking for an SUV! Never again.

Staff was extremely unprofessional and does not take accountability for their lack of thoroughness with their product. The van we rented was in severe need of a check-up - tail lights not working, oil change, alignment, electrical, etc.... when this brought to their attention they only made excuses and told us “well, you rented a van.” They didn’t care. Don’t rent a van from this company.

Nothing. Place appears to be close.They don't exist and they need to stop being advertised on the site. Their phone is disconnected and they don't answer. I even looked them up online and called a different number.

I don’t think anything could have been better. I was perfectly happy!

I waited at the rental company for two hours and no one ever arrived to rent me a vehicle. I tried reaching them by phone and email, but still haven’t heard back from them.I needed a car, but ended up going to another company the following day.

The phone number listed to contact them to call for the van drop off was no longer in service.

No cars available!Getting out of there!We drove 40 miles to this location because we couldn’t find a seven passenger vehicle available anywhere else. Upon arrival they informed us that they had no vehicles available, and weren’t sure when they would be available. We waited for about 20 minutes before leaving and going to try our luck at the airport, because we were on a time crunch. There were two other couples in the same situation as us. All three waiting for vehicles. The staff were unhelpful and seemed frantic; not the service i was hoping for after a 40 mile drive!

Phone out of order!! :(Cancelled reservation — was a nightmareThe rental is offsite, not at the rental counter. You are suppose to call a number for them to send a van to pick you up, but the number was out of order. That wasn’t a good sign, so we cancelled the reservation.

Top tips for renting a car at Sacramento Intl Airport

  • Sacramento International Airport (SMF) sits about 10.5 miles from the city center, and a car ride is the quickest means to travel between the two locations. Public transportation can take a travel time of roughly 44min, while driving a vehicle to the city center significantly minimizes the time to approximately 11min. We recommend that you consider a car rental at Sacramento International Airport if you're pressed for time or would like to get to your destination in the shortest possible time.
  • There are multiple car types available at SMF Airport for you to choose from. For example, a passenger van rental can accommodate around 12-15 people and is ideal if you're in town to explore. An SUV will come in handy if you're an outdoor person looking for adventure. It can carry about 5-7 people, with ample cargo space left for your outdoor gear. You can also select a long-term car rental, such as the monthly option if you'll be staying in Sacramento for long. You're likely to get better rates if you rent for long and it's also possible to change vehicles.
  • When your rental period is over, and you would like to return the vehicle at SMF Airport, it's best to refill the gas per the rental agency's policy to avoid unnecessary setbacks. Companies usually offer a full-full and a same-same fuel policy. It's also wise to check whether the car is in the same condition as you found it to prepare for any repair costs for damages if needed. Once you're ready, head over to the point of pickup by following the "Rental Car Return" signs to complete the return process (it's best to mark the location when renting). Afterward, a rental car shuttle will drop you off at the airport terminal.
  • If you're considering a car rental at Sacramento International Airport, keep in mind that you might find it hard to pick up or drop off your vehicle during peak hours. The airport's rush hours are generally in the mornings and evenings when people commute for work. It's best to schedule your arrival at the airport before such times to ensure that you don't experience long shuttle wait times to the rental car center. Drop off your vehicle during off-peak hours to avoid the traffic on Interstate 5 as you head toward Airport Boulevard.
