5.6 Okay27 Mar 2020
Pros: PriceCons: Had to get a $15 cab ride because their shuttle operation. Was not in service. I tried to modify my rental and they did not answer the phone, I dropped off the car and they were not open during their posted hours. Their website said they had no cars available when in reality they were closed for business. I simple phone call could have sufficed. They could have had someone to answer phone calls remotely even if they were closed.
3.2 Mediocre12 Feb 2020
Pros: The customer service was extremely four and we truly did not like any part of the interaction with Payless car rental.Cons: The customer service representative was extremely rude. We waited literally an hour and a half in line because every customer was taking about a half an hour to process. We were asked to present our entire car insurance policy to the representative in order to rent the car. No one brings their entire insurance policy with them, and they required it which was why the line took so long. I finally had to call my car insurance back in the states and have them send me my entire plan so that I could show the representative. They also forced us to buy a tollway pass for 60 extra dollars because they lied and said that we couldn’t pay with cash to get through the tolls. Worst car rental service I have ever experienced.
3.6 Mediocre9 Feb 2020
Cons: We were given an estimate of around $90 for our rental and then charged an additional $100 in hidden fees at the counter. It is what they call the “bait and switch” and it felt unquestionably criminal; we are pursuing legal means to recover the double charges!
5.6 Okay3 Feb 2020
Pros: PriceCons: The pick up process need improvement. It took an hour and 20 minutes to get the car from the time I arrived to the rental place. Also the car need maintenance. The wiper blades were bad and front tires barely had thread.
10.0 Excellent3 Feb 2020
Cons: Nothing....all was great. They were helpful , pollite , efficiant , clear ...... all personnel were great
6.4 Good1 Feb 2020
Pros: The vehicle was exactly what we were told we were going to get. Enough room for our family.Cons: Upon arriving, we were surprised to see that the place was NOT at the airport, they had to send a shuttle. When booking it said Payless Car rental was at Luis Munoz International, not the case. Fine. When we got to the location our expected price to pay was not close to what we paid. It was about $80 more. When asking the associate about the extra charges we were unable to get a break down for additional charges. All we were told was additional taxes and fees. But taxes and fees had already been on the estimate. No where on the reservation does it say that we were to be charged additional. Only time under terms and conditions that we were to get charged additional is pick up or drop off at a different time date or location. OR choosing a different vehicle. It is disheartening that this company takes advantage of families this way. Arriving later at night in a island that you don’t know, do you truly have any other option than to abide by their last minute changes? I will not be returning to kayak for future bookings.
4.0 Okay29 Jan 2020
Cons: They charged a totally different price than agreed upon online when we got there.
6.8 Good22 Jan 2020
Pros: Drop off process was easy and they were flexible worth which sedan I drove off with.Cons: Pick up process was a nightmare, waited almost 3 hours. And felt swindled to purchase unlimited tolls for an extra $75 when I maybe went through $15 worth.
10.0 Excellent29 Dec 2019
Pros: We were nervous from reading many bad reviews yet we had no problem whatsoever. Very good experience.

3.6 Mediocre29 Jul 2020
Pros: Shuttle wait was very long, I waited for 48 minutes The totally price when I book was $46 or $56 whn arrived there it went up to $146 that’s just insane minding that I already purchased insurance online. So plus insurance I spent a total of $200 something for something that claimed to be $46... stop advertising liesCons: Be honest and learn time management.

Cons: Service
3.6 Mediocre30 Apr 2019
Cons: Charged 150 for toll fee when we could have paid it online. They inspected the vehicle and after clearing all the balance, they charged 500 dollars for damage. When no damage was done and nothing was told to us while inspection
7.2 Good20 Apr 2019
Pros: The initial price point was good. The driver who picked us up from the airport was very friendly and funny.Cons: The airport pickup for Dollar is not signed at all...as in NOTHING. It took 20 minutes to get picked up from the airport once we were in the right spot. When we picked up the vehicle they upcharged me for multiple things and didn't put some very obvious damage to the car on the initial papers.
2.0 Mediocre3 Apr 2019
Pros: nothing was good about dollar. I was told I got there too late so they automatically cancelled my reservation. I fought with the rental agent to check their cameras, just to prove I was there on time. long story short they didn't have the car I reserved so they cancelled my reservation.Cons: dollar could've been more honest and said they didn't have the car I reserved, and try to resolved the situation differently instead of lying about it. their cameras proved I was there on time, and to doubt if I was there made me even more upset, I made reservations in accordance with my flight
10.0 Excellent10 Mar 2019
Pros: Great staff- they gave recommendations and were easy to chat with! Easy pick up and drop off too- clean and stylish car.
6.4 Good28 Feb 2019
Pros: Jennifer at the Verdanza hotel, second location, was very sweet and helpful.Cons: Dollar changed my 4pm pickup to 12. Told me I had until 5 to get there and get my car with a $10 late fee. I arrived at 4 and was told my reservation was cancelled and they had no cars. 2 other customers behind us has the same issue.
10.0 Excellent6 Jan 2019
Great rentalPros: Nice shuttle ride from airport to rental place. Got a nice car for a free upgrade. No hassle return!
4.0 Okay12 Aug 2018
Cons: I made my reservation for 4 days and was given a total that included taxes and fees. The charges were: Car Rental: $ 88.00 Taxes & Fees $ 33.00 Total: $121.00 When I got to the counter at 2:00 am the girl at the counter stated that my estimated amount did not include all the taxes so I was charged as follows: Car Rental: $ 88.00 Taxes & Fees $ 95.06 Total: $183.06 This is a big difference and this is DECEPTIVE. It was 2:00 am and everyone was tired so we had no other choice but to just accept the price. When they brought us our car, the car was in bad shape with a lot of dings and scratches but the worst part is the front bumper was screwed in place with a drywall screw. You could see the screwhead on the side panel of the car. When I asked for another car because I was concerned about the car’s safety and reliability, they told me they didn’t have anything else to offer me. By now it’s 2:30 am and we were really tired and had no other choice but to accept the car I have used Dollar in the past and have never had an issue. I am extremely disappointed in the level of service, condition of the car and amount of inaccuracy in total charge of this Dollar Rental location

3.2 Mediocre3 Feb 2020
Pros: Nothing. Don’t come here.Cons: The staff was very very slow and did not care about customer service. She was rude when I tried to get a time estimate after waiting 40 mins to be called up. The other staff members appeared to be very disorganized. After 50 minutes, we decided to leave. We never got the car and took our business to another car rental place that was much much quicker.
5.6 Okay30 Jan 2020
Cons: Oh my, this place is a mess... it's now called allied. I rented here before with the same experience. This time I had to cancel because they were saying my online rate wouldn't allow me to use my private vehicle full coverage.... so rented online then they wanted an additional 174$... went to NU down the street got a nicer car for same original online price. Also 2 different customers were accused of damaging their car while we were standing in line, both had taken pics and proved otherwise. It is slow, rude, disorganized, poorly ran, etc.
5.2 Okay28 Jan 2020
Pros: Not really
6.0 Good7 Jan 2020
Cons: The biggest problem is with your estimating system. The taxes and fees you gave me were 150% off. Wasted 1 hour of my trip trying to understand what happened. Your system should not use US estimates it’s way off and it makes for a lot of unhappy customers
4.0 Okay5 Jan 2020
Cons: Abrupt counter help. Slow and somewhat chaotic process for pick up.
3.6 Mediocre2 Jan 2020
Pros: Easy to return if you drop off early in the morning (around/before 8 am).Cons: Waited for almost 2 hours to get my car — 90 minutes in line just to get to the desk. The operation is totally disorganized. I feel bad for the employees because it seems like they’re doing their best to please a lot of unhappy customers.

4.0 Okay11 Nov 2019
Cons: Faster service. I had to wait two hours in line to get the car. The car stunk like rotten, I’m assuming from being wet before. I’ll definitely chose someone else to rent from Next time.

Cordial staff and even offered us to bring us back to the marina where we stayed, even tho it was out of there way! We really appreciated their service and smilesCons: Could mention the extra cost of insurance before pick up but that’s all
6.0 Good10 Sep 2019
Pros: The drop off was quick and easy.Cons: The company could have been more upfront on all of the rental charges including insurance requirements and deposit fees to be charged upfront at the time of picking up vehicle. The communication was lacking on behalf of Ace car rental/Charlie car rental.

Wouldn’t accept my insurance- scam!Cons: I have coverage through my car insurance for both liability and collision. Company wouldn’t let me decline- cost me an additional $200. Total scam!
2.0 Mediocre19 Dec 2018
ScamPros: They sent the van for us automatically at new time when our flight was delayed 2 hours.Cons: It is offsite from the airport unlike all the other rental car companies. When we got to the office offsite they told us they gave our car away because our flight was delayed. They knew we were delayed though as they sent the van to pick us up at new arrival time. They then told us they did have a car but we had to pay 50% more than what we booked for in advance. We declined and went back to airport and rented from a reputable company.

Cons: Price that was quoted through kyak was great once I got to the location they more then doubled the price of the rental car rip off
8.8 Excellent13 Sep 2020
Pros: Staff was very polite and helpful.Cons: Other rental companies that offer EZPass you pay for tolls used during your car rental. With Sixt even if you only will use the toll for 2 days you must take ezpass for the length of your rental. @ $7.95/per day + taxes. The other option is not to take it and drive longer to avoid tolls. For the extra expense one adds to the bill you probably might want to shop around first.
6.0 Good16 Aug 2020

Pros: Free shuttle between airport and rental office (was especially helpful during dropoff because I was very late and nearly missed my flight)Cons: Took over 1.5 hours to get a car even though I had made a reservation well in advance. Estimated cost of rental when I made the reservation was $60 but I paid $105 due to additional charges that were not mentioned until the time of pickup.

NEVER rent from USavePros: When I landed, the rental agency was closed. They knew what time my flight was coming in but they did not notify me when I booked the reservation that their office would be closed when my flight arrived. I called the national number. They said if I called the local number someone would pick up. They didn't. National number also said they would have someone call me back as soon as they opened in the morning. They did not. I called the national number several times in the morning but kept getting sent to voicemail with a promise they'd call me back. They never did. Finally called the local number in the morning. He asked what time I arrived the night before and said they were closed at that time. (Funny... the national office said they closed at a different time... ) Local guy also said said because I had not shown the night before he'd canceled the rental. I asked how could he help me now. He just said he couldn't. Told me to go online to rent a car from them. I went online and the site said to call the local office to rent a car. At that point I just gave up.
3.6 Mediocre12 Dec 2015
Cons: I received my rental and everything was fine. Two days into my trip the brakes on the car I rented failed and thank god I was able to stop the car. I then had to get the brakes replaced at my expense. Making the trip miserable. I was reimbursed for the brakes after I returned the car, but in no way does that compensate for the moment you step on the brakes to find there are none. This company needs to remember that vehicle maintenance and customer safety needs to come first and foremost.

Need refund, was not given the carCons: Our flight got delayed and we did not get into San Juan in time to pick up our rental, so it was canceled, however, I was still charged for this $50.00. The reference number is "4937". Please let me know what I need to do to get a refund.

No carPros: Nothing. They didn't have the car for my reservation.Cons: They passed me onto an even worse car rental place, Sixt. Never go there. Waste of time.
3.2 Mediocre22 Oct 2015
U don,t saveCons: Well in the end you don't save. Lots of hidden fees that they say are mandatory, like roadside assistance insurance cost me $24.00. Not shown on my kayak reservation total. Kayak quote was $158.08 they said minimum was $184.69. That's after we went through a big hassle discussion about insurance. They would not honor my premier visa insurance. I had to call my Regular auto insurance co and get a copy of my policy for them. They also took an imprint of my credit card which they said they will keep on file for 30 days in case there is any additional charges or un discovered damage. The whole thing made me pretty uncomfortable. Not even sure they can legally do that?
2.0 Mediocre22 Oct 2015
No way!Pros: ...we cxld our reservation and booked elsewhere.Cons: Waited 30 minutes curbside to finally call and receive no answer. Got picked up and driven to a hole in the wall building where the neighbor company was. Waited an hour while the person in front of us argued with the one service agent. Finally got to the front where he tried to scam is into buying incredibly overpriced insurance coverage and toll road packages. Ended up having them drive is back to the airport to rent with a reputable company. Don't go!!

Top tips for hiring a car in San Juan

  • Because public transportation is limited and doesn’t go very far, you’ll want to rent a car during your stay in San Juan. A hire car will give you the freedom to explore places on the island, like Cueva Ventana or Arecibo Observatory. Additionally, you’ll be able to better explore much of the nature and picturesque scenery as you drive along the coastal highways. You can also drive through the rainforest – an unforgettable experience.
  • The San Juan Airport (or Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport) is just a few miles from the center of the city. Once you are off the plane, you’ll simply retrieve your hire car from the parking garage, or you can take a shuttle to the hire car desk. This airport provides many options for car hires including locally own companies like Charlie Car hire as well as nationally recognized companies such as Hertz or Enterprise.
  • The roads in San Juan can be a little bumpy and rough. Additionally, their narrowness can be somewhat intimidating to tourists. So, you’ll need to drive with caution even though you are sightseeing. Motorcycles are also very common in Puerto Rico, and motorcyclists tend to drive quite fast and will cut in front of you; so beware.
  • During rush hour the traffic can get a little heavy. The morning rush hour typically begins at around 8 a.m. and continues through 9:30 a.m. or so. In the evening, commuters will begin to return home at 4 p.m., which will cause some congestion on the road until around 6 p.m.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in San Juan for £30 or less
  • Book your car hire in San Juan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hires in San Juan are around 40% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Old cobblestone roads, numerous hills, and mountain driving make renting a Jeep or SUV while in San Juan a good idea. More importantly, make sure the car has a very good air conditioning system, as it can get quite hot and humid in Puerto Rico.

  • Speed limits on the island go from 20 to 45 mph in residential areas. Around Old San Juan, the speed limit is 25 mph and, when close to schools, note that the speed limit drops to 15 mph. When on the freeway, you can go up to a maximum speed of 70 mph.

  • Petrol costs about $0.81 per liter or $3.08 per gallon. If you are in the metro area, expect to pay a few cents more at the pump and little bit less on the outskirts of town. The cost of petrol in San Juan and all of Puerto Rico is slightly more than other states within the mainland United States.

  • Old San Juan offers so much in terms of historical and cultural sights. Nonetheless, trying to find parking in this area can be a challenge. There is some “free” street parking as well as metered parking, but you’ll have to get to it early in the day. If you aren’t fortunate enough to get a street spot, don’t fret -- there are plenty of parking garages and lots to choose from. Some options include Old San Juan Cruise Pier Parking and Parking Lot Old San Juan on Calle Marina.
