Cons: No signs to the airport. Filled the car up before I dropped it off and then the agent told me it was not full. Had to pay almost twice as much than the original reservation price.

Can't rent from KAYAK
Pros: Nothing. I showed up at the airport and there were absolutely no vehicles available for me to get home at 3:00 am. Thankfully I was traveling with a group and they took me home.
Cons: For the second time in as many trips when I get to the airport at 3:00 am my rental is not available, last April I rented through KAYAK and when I showed up to pick my vehicle all they had for me was a compact car in lieu of the small SVU that I reserved. Not only that, the next day I was responsible for returning the temporary rental back to one of their offices to then pick up my reserved rentals, so basically I wasted my first vacation day dealing with my rental.
This time around, I said okay Alamo is definitely not the way to go so let me try ACE, but little did I know this was going to be even worst. After waiting for over 20 minutes to be helped, I was flat out told that my vehicle was not available and the only car available was a full size SUV that I would have to pay more for and I had to take their insurance as my Credit Card insurance was not enough for me to leave with the vehicle. So, this time around I was literally going to be stranded at the airport at 4:00 am unless I took the terms I was offered. Can you imagine, how I would have felt had this not been my country of origin, or if I wasn't traveling with family members that eventually took me home and helped me get a rental at a different place the very next morning.
I would never, ever in my life rent from KAYAK again.
Pros: Nothing. Didn't end up renting from them. It felt like they were crooked and trying to rip me off.
Cons: They didn't honor the reservation. Didn't except the Discover insurance or Visa insurance. Were going to charge me more than the reservation. Ended up renting a vehicle for a 3rd of the cost elsewhere.
