Worst rental experiencePros:NothingCons:I made a reservation three months early for a wedding. When I arrived to pick up the car they had no cars for me and no apologies or assistance in getting a car. They only offered to allow me to wait on the chance that a car may or may not show up that day. They claimed to have notified me by phone in the morning, but I showed them my phone log. I never received the call they claimed. Notifying me the morning of wouldn't have fixed the problem, it only would have saved me the hour trip to the rental place. I ended up using another car rental location over an hour away and paid 60% higher rate to get a last minute rental.Reviewed 30 Jul. 2016

Pros:I wasn't able to rent this car because it wasn't possible to talk to a human at the rental counter or at priceline to tell them we were running late, so they cancelled the reservation and left us stranded. It was just constant redirects through numerous phone systems and no opportunity to reach the location whatsoever.Cons:If I had been able to rent the car. Thank you for ruining our weekend and leaving us stranded in Chicago where all other rentals were sold out.Reviewed 12 Oct. 2020

Pros:Loved that everything went according to plan and they even gave me a Camry, which was a wonderful upgrade compared with what I had ordered (the cheapest car possible)Reviewed 15 Aug. 2020

Don't Trust Customer ServicePros:Got a much larger and more useful vehicle for essentially the same price as a regular mini van rental.Cons:Spoke to two separate customer service reps to verify that my age (24) would not prevent me from receiving the vehicle I had reserved. Was told that the location I chose would have no problem accommodating me and would allow that. When I showed up to get my mini van, I was told no and had to get the branch manager involved to make an exception. Then they didn't have any mini vans so I was given a 12 passenger van. Not an issue but I had to re-purchase the insurance after I had already paid for insurance on my initial rental, was already too late to have it refunded.Reviewed 6 Jun. 2016

Be careful!Pros:The car itself - a Hyundai Sonata hatchback- was fine and actually a pleasant surprise.Cons:Despite telling the agent multiple times that I would fill the car with gas myself before returning it, she charged me the $46 fuel service option. When I questioned her on it, she said it always shows up that way, but if I refuel it, it will just get taken off. That’s a very shady practice in my opinion. When I returned the car with a full tank and asked the woman who checked the car in to remove the charge she did, but she also told me not to accept that next time. It’s an option, not a default, and I should not have had to agree to that.Reviewed 7 Jul. 2018

Pros:pick up took 90 minutes!!!! only 4 agents helping 2 agencies!!! line was out the door, down the stairs!!! never waited this long for a car pick up! drop off required me to go back in and wait in line again to see an agent!! typically staff does that on their machine when I pull up! another wait!!Cons:More agents working, better system to speed the process on line, and typical drop off at the spot...Reviewed 13 Oct. 2020
