Good service. The way the whole island deals with COVID is excellent. Location was clean ,but not how it was advertised. The address makes it sounds as if it’s at the airport when it’s outside of the airport. Need to take a shuttle to and from the location.

I had made reservations back at the beginning of September it should have been ready for pick up. Had to wait for the guy to clean it. I waited about 40 minutes. Car had a dent with scratches on the passenger side.

This place is a scam. It’s the old bait-and-switch. They lure you in with low prices, and then when you arrive, they add on all kinds of hidden fees and insurances that they claim are mandatory. Stick with known brands like Avis, Hertz, Enterprise, etc. You get what you pay for. Where do I start? They are NOT at the airport (like they claim) or have any kind of shuttle transportation that will take you there. There are no signs and no communication from them. I took an Uber to their location, and arrived to a really shoddy building in a bad neighborhood, on a road that was full of potholes. Then I had to wait OUTSIDE in the hot sun while the single employee helped a customer inside. After 20 or more minutes they finally let me in. The lady surprised me with all kinds of fees and a rate that was more than double what I had booked online and was prepared to pay. She then asked for my ID and credit card, which she promptly photocopied and held on to, while I got on the line with Kayak support, which helped me cancel the booking. When I finally told her I just couldn’t do it at the rate she was quoting me at, she handed me the paper copy of my cards. Needles to say, I went elsewhere. Avoid at all costs.

When we arrived to the facility, we were told no cars were available, despite me having a reservation. When I pressed further, I was told that luxury cars were available for an additional fee. We were very tired from travel and agreed to proceed with the luxury vehicle. The cost ended up being several hundred dollars more than I contracted originally. We waited over 45 minutes and no car was ever brought. At that point, we simply canceled the contract and took an Uber to our destination.

No frills at office but replied late evening.My Kia Soul had a jammed wheel. Enterprise sent a technician who came at night and fixed it for me. I appreciate their reply and efforts to help with this problem.Not being able to get an Uber ride from the airport was not my cup of tea, but taxi worked fine and charged $14 for a family of 3 with luggage.

Great value cars!The car that we had was so nice and in excellent condition. It was very fairly priced. Staff spoke English and were very helpful. The overall experience was excellent and it was a great value!The location was fine for us because we were staying on Isle Verde but it would be challenging for travelers looking for easy access from the airport. It would be a $15 cab ride to Enterprise location.

I will never use europcar again for the rest of my life, and I hope no one else does either. Those people were terrible.

The car worked wellI was not given any instructions on the car dropoff. There was no key dropbox and there were no instructions sent to me about the key dropoff either. We spent nearly an hour trying to call europcar and find a place to drop off the key. In the end we decided to just lock the car keys in the vehicle. Almost missed my flight too. Will never use this company again.

Enormous lines at the counter at both pick up and drop off that all other brands did not have. The helpfulness of staff was atrocious. I highly recommend renting from a different brand even if it’s a little more expensive. You will regret not spending the extra money for the service.
1.9 Horrible30 Jul 2021
We waited at the counter in line for 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete the paperwork with the agent. After being checked in we then waited another 45 to get the car. We got into San Juan around 4:30pm and figured with a 25min commute we’d have most the night to relax on the beach at the hotel. We didn’t get out of the airport car rental until 8:30pm. We lost a night of our vacation due to Avis’ poor service, and we will never use them again.

I reserved the car in May for a June trip and called 1 week before to confirm my reservation. I arrived at 1:30 a.m. and was told that there were no cars available. I was told to return to the airport later in the morning as they MAY (not will) have cars available. I called the 1-800 number to see if there was a way to confirm if there would be any cars available as I didn't want to waste my time and cab money going back to the airport. I was also traveling with 2 kids, which made this situation a little more difficult. The representative that I spoke to was nasty and one of his comments was that "it wasn't his problem". When I asked to speak to a supervisor or manager he told me he didn't have one and hung up on me. I went back to the airport the next morning and there were 8 others waiting in front of me. I timed the check-in for the couple that was already at the counter and it was about 20-25 minutes. Do the math. With 8 people in front of me, I was sure I would spend at least 2 hours waiting to get the counter and even when I got there, there was no guarantee I'd get a car. Luckily I found another car from another company. I will NEVER EVER rent from Avis.The entire experience could have been better.
2.0 Mediocre28 Jun 2021
NothingEasily the worst experience I've ever had. Made the reservation a month in advance and by the time I arrived at the counter, the clerk had the audacity to tell me there are no cars available for me until the next day. What is the point of having a reservation if you're not going to honor it. Had to pay a $100 cab ride to get to my hotel.

The Budget/Avis staff in San Juan airport was friendly and helpful. She was bilingual, which was great since no one in my family speaks Spanish. The problem was that only Avis and Budget had the larger cars, so although there were your typical car rental places at the airport, there was a huge line to get through because it seemed that a lot of travelers wanted larger cars/SUVs/minivans. I think I waited in line for over an hour to get my car because there were only 2 people working at the desk between the Budget and Avis counters (they must be owned by the same company because they had one line feeding both car rental counters). They could have made this better by having more people at the desk to help get through the line. Drop off was a breeze. They checked us in and we were out of there in 5 minutes.

If you use one toll road for $0.75, Budget bills you $28.75. The toll road gets only $0.75, and Budget gets $28. That's just wrong.

The guy was excellent! Edwin was Proper, respectful, professional, polite, but how’s possible that he was working alone for Avis and budget! I had to wait 4 hrs inside only, then another 40 minutes to get the car, probably COVID is to blame, but this situation needs to be fixed immediately! I don’t like to give bad reviews, I’m a very patient person but waiting 4 hrs to get the car after a flight is too much

The rental place charged me a surplus of $300 as a deposit on top of my rental fee. Would a have liked to be made aware of this prior to renting to make sure I had enough money on my credit card.

I didn't like anything about this rental experience. This is the last time I will rent from this place in Puerto Rico. They will take advantage of people and overcharge them with hidden fees when you arrive to pick up your car. They don't honor the price given by KAYAK and service is poor from customer service to the wait time to pick up vehicle. It took about 45-50 minutes to get our vehicle from our check-in.

1.9 Horrible29 Jul 2021
Upon arrival to Puerto Rico, the company I made the reservation with were out of cars. To which I was informed that when the reservation is made, we reserve the price and not the vehicle. The shuttle took us to another location, 3 buildings down and we had to wait 3 hours for a car rental. The service to both locations was horrible. It was raining too, and they had over 15 people waiting under the rain on a carp that they had placed in front of the building. They only had one person working and another guarding the door indicating people that only one person at the time in side of the building, to which the door had a sign stating that 29 people at the time, per government compliance. We do understand that Covid is going on and have change several things, but the lack of communication, wait time, customer service was horrible to Allied Car Rental and Next Car. My reservations were maid through Kayak and I will not be using this services any more. This was my first time and last.

Car hire excess insurance in Carolina

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Carolina car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Carolina.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Carolina car rental.
