The car was nice and the pick up was fine

KAYAK

Pros:

It was a good value! It beat the overpriced rates of Enterprise that are taking advantage of the tourists and locals in Venice, Florida. I drove 40 miles to get this Rental, and it was worth it.

Cons:

Staff was Great, but you need to get a drop box for rental keys for after hours and weekends.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Original price was good but the tire went flat and had to call a wrecking service ($65). When he came he found that the spare was flat. Had to take tire to be fixed ($21). Had to take a taxi from airport to rental location and from rental location back to the airport ($35 + tip each way=$80). Extra $165. We lost a day of vacation when tire was flat and 2 1/2 hours waiting for tire to be repaired plus time getting to and from rental location which was approx. 10 miles in the opposite direction of where we were staying when we passed a Hertz location about 5 min. from where we were staying on the way to the place our reservation was made for us. Was told when I made reservation that we could be picked up from the airport.

Cons:

All of the above was a dislike PLUS the guy who was there was NOT personable or professional.

Pros:

Staff member at the terminal was awesome. Very personable, efficient and professional. I walked away satisfied and laughing at our last exchange. She was the last employee I saw while picking up our vehicle. Upon returning our vehicle we did locate an employee in the lot who was also quite friendly.

Cons:

The vehicle was dirty from the top to the wheel wells. The rear seats were still down which made it easier to put our luggage away but the area clearly had not been vacuumed. There were no employees to be found in the lot. There was a damaged front headlight which had markings on it indicating that it had already been observed by staff. Upon putting up the rear seats to pick up our children at the airport, We noticed that all rear seats were covered with dog foot prints of mud which I had to clean prior to picking up our guests. Clearly not COVID-19 sanitized.

Cons:

Tried to call 4 different Budget numbers first morning line would Say connecting to an agent and then disconnects very frustrating. The car smelled like weed/smoke when we picked it up. Came back 20 min after pickup to let the agent know. She said she would note it on account. I asked about a later check in she said if I was later then 1:25 I would be charged full day 47.00 base rate. So we decided we would pay extra. My husband wanted another car it was that strong , but I didn’t want to wait. Next drop off was a mess two workers told us differently on drop off I instructions. Left keys on car, take my paperwork and no one looked over car with us there which I wanted to because they was no damage and full tank. They said I d get email haven’t yet. Looked on pending charges and it’s way over amount..... never agaon. Want explanation of why it’s soooo much pending

confusion about pick up location meant I had to uber from airport to a distant suburban location and wait for more than an hour to pick up my car. return was not much better since no one ever answered the phone when I needed to extend the rental or change the drop off. the staff at the airport was not helpful but when we were finally assisted at Clark Road, the lady there was very nice.

Cons:

Booked a convertible it confirmed. Got there and they didn't have a convertible because on was returned earlier that day with damage. They could have called or emailed before I paid to Uber to the dealership. The woman that was helping was insanely abrasive and rude about it instead of apologetic. I understand things happen but I absolutely should have been notified before my reservation time plus she did not need to be so abrasive about it. Apologetic and calm if the way she should have approached it. I am extremely unsatisfied and will not book again.

Pros:

The staff member at the pickup was rude in trying to sell additional collision insurance which was unnecessary as my credit card includes such coverage. He was condescending and aggressive.

Cons:

After speaking with rental agency customer support for over 45 minutes, no one could tell me what the cost would be to drop the car off early at a different location. They advised me to drop the vehicle and that they would waive any fees if they were charged. No invoice has been received in over 48 hours since dropping off the vehicle.

Pros:

The check out process was quick and easy at the airport terminal. Car was comfortable.

Cons:

It took over an hour to pickup rental even though I had already done all paperwork and just needed to pickup vehicle. There was a lot of chaos, 2 people doing rentals and only 4 people in front of me. They were struggling with order, cleaning and checkout process. Won’t rent from that location again.

Pros:

The 2nd car was clean & in good working condition. Try’s car w/ cracked windshield & followed all instructions when I called in & got case #, did follow up before returning car. Simple “incident report” done upon return, easy, 15 min to do paperwork so was impressed they gave outside service, avoiding lines inside terminal.

Cons:

Initial car had obvious front end or alignment problem that should have never been rented out. Caused me to return next day for replacement. Eating my valuable vacation time.

Pros:

That eventually I got a small car.

Cons:

Had reserved a small car -- but only a truck was available. Was told to come back the next day, when there would be plenty of cars, and swap it out for a small car. Did that -- told us that no cars were available (all cars reserved -- tho of course my car was reserved too). Told to come back the next day between 8-10am -- when there would surely be plenty of cars. Did...and after 30 minutes (first saying there were no cars) they found a small car. Incidentally, had tried to call ahead each time but the main office didn't know the local car situation and no one answered the phone at the local office. Local office told me that they don't have anyone available to answer the phone. This isn't a problem that can be solved without people driving all the way to the airport to find out if there are cars available?

Bill was extremely helpful in adjusting the amount overcharged. Paul was also a pleasure. Everything about our encounter was very very nice. The drop off process was very easy. if I was not overcharged I would have been out of there in 5 minutes.

Cons:

When i dropped off the car I was overcharged. Had I not looked at my receipt I would not have known. I had to go inside and go to the counter to have the charge adjusted.
