Stressful after-hours drop off - poor signage in underground garage
Cons: My pick up location in Montreal was unable to give me specific information about the Toronto after hours drop off, but said it would be straightforward. That was not my experience. The drop off at 200 Wellington West was poorly marked. The signage disappeared suddenly and I had a lot of difficulty figuring out where to leave the car. I kept circling the garage in my car but was unable to find anything. Finally, I parked and walked around all of P2 to find the spot. As a single woman by myself, walking around P2 at night felt very unsafe. When I found the spot for Alamo renters, I was then confused about the key drop off. The only key drop off box in the area was labelled National and Alamo was not mentioned. Again, I walked around the underground garage to find it. I finally figured out that I was meant to leave the key for my Alamo rental in the National drop off box. I recommend that the signage for after hours drop offs be improved.

Cancelled my booking, gave me lower class car at the higher rate
Pros: Best part was when it ended.
Cons: The dealer cancelled my booking without making any attempt to contact me. When i arrived, no one was in the office. The dealer revived the booking but gave me a lower class car at the higher rate, saying he had no other cars. The corolla was filthy inside with food stains. The drop off destination on the website apparently didn't exist any more so i had to deliver across town at additional cost and effort (Had to keep the car overnight). I later discovered this to be a lie, with the drop off across the street to my accommodation.

Pros: Again, employees were very helpful.
Cons: Drop off location not well marked so that it was difficult to find, even with exact directions.

Cons: The rental agent was rude, disrespectful and had a chip on his shoulder. I would never rent with Alamo or any of its affiliate companies again. The agent tore up our rental agreement and would not even allow us to take our booked rental car because we arrived over 3 hours after our scheduled pick up time (despite the fact that the car was available and no one else had tried to book it). He was on a power trip and was more concerned with being right than offering customer service. Just appalling.
