Vehicle was not ready at pickup. Had to wait 30 + minutes The second seat area was filthy. No one was at the counter at drop off.

Pick up and drop off were quick and easy.While it was great to have a truck I was surprised it had big mudder tires on which made it really loud.

People were friendlyCar wasn't ready for over an hour. Also many other customers were also having to wait as there were not any cars available even though we all had reservations and confirmation numbers.

Drop off was easy.The first car was difficult to get as they had rented all their cars in Key West, so we had to wait several hours. The car they gave us broke down and had to be returned.

Pick up was disorganized, they didn’t give me all the paperwork which considerably slowed drop off
2.0 Mediocre19 Apr 2021
Didn’t charge what I was supposed to be charged and never communicated it to me.Better communication while booking with accurate pricing. I didn’t receive a receipt or anything and the price was completely different than when I booked it.

My reservation was not honored. Arrived at my destination and was told there were no cars available. Ended up being forced to pay more than double the amount to get a car at a different agency. Terrible!

The staff was excellent and the vehicle was exactly what we wanted
2.0 Mediocre17 May 2021
The staff member told us "we had no hope of getting a car" and to use another agency, therefore we never got our carThe staff should have issued a refund for the prepaid rental, but would not

Mack was so helpful! He tried to help my reservation when my flights were rerouted and we got in an hour later than expected. He really went above and beyond to try to accommodate the change in plans.Closing the office prior to the arrival of the last fight is problematic, there were a number of folks stranded without their rental car. This resulted in additional taxi fees from and returning to the airport to pick up the vehicle during the next days business hours. If business hours could be extended, the arrival in Key West and Avis experience would be more enjoyable.

The guy didn’t go i ok we very much, I wasn’t aware that i you you could return the car without a full tank of gas so I was disappointed that we had to stop and get gas after picking up the car. I also would have like them to vacuum out the car before I received it.Read all the information you can and ask questions!

Never rent from hereNothingThey were not open when they were supposed to be and when I was scheduled to pick up my car. I waited an hour and nobody ever arrived to open the store on a Friday morning. We called every Avis customer service line that we could find and nobody could help us. Ultimately I had to go find another car rental place and rent a different car, at obviously a significantly higher rate because it was last minute. Horrible experience that almost ruined my vacation.

Terrible customer serviceStood in line for an hour and a half to get a car. The only had 2 people working.
4.4 Okay20 Mar 2018
never return earlyCar was nice, except had 3rd row of seats that would not go down to make better access for suitcases.We returned this car early. AVIS would NOT credit us for the unused days, but instead charged for the full amount. This amount came to over $400. When we picked up the car in Key West, we mentioned that we might return it (to Cutler Bay) early. Nothing was said at that time about the full charge or changing our contract. In Cutler Bay, they insisted on charging the full amount. VERY POOR customer service. Will never rent through AVIS again.

Don’t forget you VISA insurance, AVIS won’t remind youSale representative successfully pushed their optional insurance because I forgot I already had one with my VISA credit card, which the sale rep perfectly knew.

We all appreciate customer service right? My flight got canceled, had to rebook in a nearby city, and they couldn’t transfer my pick up location to help my trip at a major hub where cars were plentiful. I went with Enterprise, no issues there!

The pickup and drop off in Key West was easy, on-site and convenient.
6.0 Good2 Jun 2021
Did not have to have to take a bus. Car quality. Easy drop off.The check in process was horribly long - more than an hour. Not enough staff. The person was nice and knowledgeable but needed help. We had to wait longer while she stopped serving people in line so she could prepare preferred customer contracts.

Key West airport is crowded and when we arrived the Dollar rental sign was off. There was a small sign to go to Hertz that I didn't see until most of the crowd had moved out. Then, there was only ONE agent working. Clearly, there should have been more agents there. Thankfully, there was no line when there for drop off.

Drop off was very difficult. The staff was ok, but I was not informed on the 3rd party website of all the additional fees at pickup..All around could have been better.. every aspect. But was good value

Dollar did note have the car I reserved on lot. They instead gave me a compact SUV and charged me for the full price of the premium convertible I reserved. Since it was booked via Kayak I couldn't get a refund and there were no other options available. Overall, I would not book a car from Dollar again not use a third party website like Kayak.

Pick up time was noon. I had to wait until 1:30 to pick up my car.There is too much to list.
4.4 Okay10 Feb 2020
Vehicle was in good condition.The larger vehicle I had reserved was not available when I arrived. It had been sent to Miami (for Superbowl). I had specifically reserved the extra large vehicle to transport groups of people. Had to make extra trips because my reservation was not kept. Also... I left my jacket in the vehicle. Trying to contact lost and found seems near impossible. I pout a description and request in the on-line Lost and Found... but have heard nothing. I'm not sure if the different rental agencies talk to each other... when I arrived they issued the vehicle through Thrifty (not Dollar)... do they get the same request for Lost and Found? -Spencer Wayne (507) 215-1604

I was given an upgraded vehicle at no extra charge. This was because they did not have my reserved vehicle on the lot.I think that the lot was far busier than expected and it caused some logistical problems. They only had one gentlemen cleaning all of the cars, so that caused some issues with being able to turn the cars over in a timely manner.

While it was advertised that the Enterprise location was available for pickup on Sunday from 9 am -1 pm, this was not the case, and I was unable to make my planned trip because of it

we booked a car 24 hours in advance, got confirmation, and the one hour before pickup got a call saying they had NO vehicles available...we are done with enterprise key largo.the representative was absolutely useless in answering questions about our other options and his supervisor never followed up on our issue.

Friendly staffcars were dirty. the excuse was the car was sitting for a couple of days. the car has not been cleaned, there were electronic devices left by previous customer in glove box and the previous renter must have had a pet in the car which was noticed by my son in law who is alergic to cats. I am Not, but 200 miles later when i picked him up it becamw evident. sloppy work Enterprise!
