Do not rent from this companyCons:This company is corrupt, they charged me for insurance when I specifically told them I didn't want it and then refused to refund it. They put a bunch of additional items on my bill and refused to take them off when I called them within 24 hours of renting the car. Very, very bad customer service and both the employees found joy in the fact that they would not give me any money back, it was very odd as I don't know any company that would act this way. Really bad experience and very deceptive trade practices, I will be reporting them to the BBB and fighting the charges on my credit card.Reviewed 22 Mar. 2018

Pros:Overall a great experience. I was nervous not renting from one of the big companies but the value was outstanding and I couldn't pass it up. I ended up with an extra passenger and needed to upgrade to a larger vehicle and they were very accommodating and gave us a mini van for a very reasonable price (versus the outrageous prices usually charged for mini vans). All the rental companies were off site and we arrived on Christmas day so I was a bit worried about how often a shuttle would show up. We waited maybe 5 or 10 minutes max and once we got to the facility everything moved quickly and smoothly. Drop off was a breeze as well. I would definitely rent from Advantage again.Reviewed 7 Jan. 2016

The car was very comfortable. Chrysler 200 easy toPros:I appreciated our shuttle driver that brought us to pick up our car. He gave us good tips to prepare for our drive around the city of San Antonio. The wear Ther was a mess, but getting a heads up on the flood area made it easier to maneuver. Checking the car in and out was a breeze. Thanks for having such wonderful staff.Cons:The only disappointment was my trip was not longer. ThanksReviewed 9 Jun. 2016

Pickup experience not ok...Cons:After arriving at the pickup area with our kids and bags - we expected to pick up the car in less than 15 minutes... it took over an hour. First, we were told that we'd need to put down a $200 deposit. That was NOT explained clearly when booking the reservation and is not something we've been asked to do at other rental agencies. Second, we were told that our card would not go through. We tried it three times and then called the bank to see if there was a lock on the account due to traveling so far from our usual area of account activity. The quickly added the travel advisory to the account to ensure transactions could process from where we were. Again, the agent ran the card and again stated it had not been cleared. This happened six more times. In between each "try", the agent helped other customers (who had not been asked for a deposit). An hour later, we called the bank and had them stay on the phone to ensure plenty of funds were available and that the transaction was cleared. The agent ran the card again - denied. This time he claimed my credit had been denied. I've NEVER had a credit check to rent a car in my life! Nor did I fill out any paperwork authorizing such a thing to take place. Finally, my fellow traveler had to use her credit card to rent the vehicle with the deposit - but surprising without a credit check. I had to be added as an additional driver at an extra cost of about $10 per day. A cost we didn't need to pay had the agent simply accepted payment from my account. To top it off - we had to witness employees fighting and cursing at each other in front of my children as we loaded into the car. As a Veteran, Federal Employee, and frequent traveler - I expected better treatment. I would rather walk than deal with Advantage rental ever again. Never again.Reviewed 5 Apr. 2016

Not what I expectedPros:The vehicle got good fuel mileage.Cons:Booked a "Jeep or similar". I don't think a tiny Mitsubishi SUV is at all similar to a Jeep. If you don't have Jeeps, allow us the courtesy to call it what it is. "Mitsubishi or similar" Booked a rental from Advantage based primarily on the fact that the location said "In terminal" . Fount out that this was a blatant lie. There is an in terminal counter that is not staffed. To get to the staffed counter and car, you HAVE TO TAKE A SHUTTLE. Don't call it "IN TERMINAL" if it is NOT. I didn't want to wait for a shuttle, heft my luggage on and off the shuttle, wait in line at the rental lot because I was last getting my luggage off the crowded shuttle while thinking about how the return trip would be exactly the same. AND I'll have to leave 45 min earlier just to return the car and wait for the shuttle again! $65.00 for a one day rental so you can deal with the company's misrepresentation and lies is ridiculous.Reviewed 2 Mar. 2016

The customer service representative went above andPros:When I had discovered the car rental company was requiring more of a deposit then I had expected.... My credit card did not have enough on it. The CSR made an exception and saved me a ton of additional pain.... Made me a huge fan of Advantage!!!!!!!!!Reviewed 21 Oct. 2016

Check in and check out worldsPros:Rental return was an absolute breeze.Cons:Waited for off airport shuttle transportation for at least 30 minutes and no answer to phone to request it. Waited another 1+20 minutes for the rental process to be completed. All this near midnight with a 2+40 minute drive to complete. With four renters the process seemed overwhemed. Car was somewhat clean but windshield was well spotted with bugs.Reviewed 5 Sep. 2016

Not overly impressedPros:I was provided a Toyota Camry, which was convenient since our family drives a similar upgraded model at home.Cons:The car had 32K miles, bald tires undetected for the first 4 days and damaged front grill from prior drivers running into parking curbs (I had to snap loose parts back in place prior to leaving the lot on day 1). Camry's have little front end clearance and should always be backed into parking locations to prevent this problem. As with most other car rental companies, Advantage attaches all car keys to a heavy cable for the Rental company convenience - not the customer. They keys must be detachable to permit at least one key to remain with the customer comfortably. Suggest revising this process and make the customer responsible for any lost keys. Use Advantage Again- Humm????Reviewed 31 Oct. 2015

Missinformation from employees lead to disaster.Pros:Car was comfortable to drive.Cons:I called the night before my drop off to make sure there would be a shuttle available early in the morning. I was planning on dropping off at 5:30am. I was told that not only would there not be a shuttle but that the location would not be open until 6am and I could not return until that time which would make me miss my flight. I ended up having to change my flight to a later time which cost $150. When I went to return the car at 6am I saw that they were open at 5am for drop offs. I will never use Advantage again.Reviewed 17 Nov. 2015
