3.9 Mediocre25 Sep. 2021
I reserved a compact vehicle & upon arrival they tried to put me in a minivan & charge me way more! They refused to budge even though I had a confirmed reservation. It was either pay more & drive the van or leave. I left and went to the airport location where I got my compact but they would not honor my rate (even though the locations were less than a couple miles apart.). They still charged me more but I got my compact car for great gas mileage on a long one way drive. Employee at drop off was super nice, car was fine but very frustrated with man at original scheduled pickup location. He was gruff, not polite and ignored my confirmed reservation!

Great experience with drop off in Stuart FL. Pick up in DAB as a bit slow as only one worker with 8 people in line but agent was super friendly and efficient

I just always forget that they want our milage turned in when we turn in the car. So it means a trip back to the car which I did not have any time to do this time. Not sure what the solution is but a reminder sticker on the dash would help. The rental agent at Budget/Avis that I have worked with at Daytona has always been great!!

getting the car online was easy. I also had to modify my reservation and was able to easily do so with one phone call which was great. Drop off was also quick and easy.Pick up was a little rough. There was only 1 person working the counter and there were numerous people waiting to get cars. I was "third" in line but still had a 25 minute wait.

We got a warning to change oil. We called and no one seemed to care. It was quite aggravating and time consuming.
4.8 Okay19 Nov. 2020
I rented a medium size car and Alamo gave me a compact, much smaller than I paid for. On top of that the attendant insisted in me taking road assistance which cost me another $100. It was a rip off. You can tell they are mad cause people refuse their insurance which is $40 per day and the other add one they desperately want us to accept so the rental fee doubles in price.

The staff was very friendly,The inside of the car smelled like smoke, car wasn’t very clean, There was too long of a wait to obtain car on the day of rental. When taking car back, too much info needed, they should have most of the info written down on envelope for you. Was told a receipt would be emailed to me, but didn’t receive one and had to call to get the final receipt.

Staff was friendly at the Daytona Beach pick up location and the roadside assistance person over the phone. The staff when arriving at Orlando airport were very unorganized and ignored us completely.The vehicle's tire exploded on the expressway. Nothing was hit and the tire exploded with the tread falling off the hubcap. It was clearly a tire that needed to have been changed prior to our use of the vehicle. When I called roadside assistance, they told me that I needed to pay $70 to fix the flat

First time w dollar. No one told us about a $100 "cleaning fee" . Never got that from hertz, alamo, national or enterprise or any other rental service. I would have had it cleaned. Also, why was I charged airport taxes when I did not fly in or out. Now I am on hold for 18 minutes waiting to address these unexpected charges.Sneaky, they hit me with several unexpected charges after the return which I have never had an issue with when renting from any other company. $100 cleaning fee? Needed some vacuuming otherwise the vehicle was the same returned as picked up. You may spend hours on the phone before any answer when you call to ask why a non flyer was charged airport taxes. Take the time at the counter to get a final cost BUYER BEWARE!

The car was great, we didn’t need anything special. It was a great price, good on gas, smooth driving, and the process of pick up/drop off was an ease.I would go over any current dents/aesthetic damages already on the car prior to the renters taking the car off the lot.

Nothing, had to cancelGot to the rental place, their card chip reader wasn't working so we had to swipe. My husband's mag strip was worn so it wasn't working. The woman at the counter informed us she couldn't type the card manually. As we share the same bank account, we asked to use my card and were unable to due to it being in his name. We were then advised to call and straighten it out with priceline. So we tried numerous times to call price line only to get an auto recording telling us about our rental details, no option for a rep. We decided to use the chat feature to get help. First person seemed like she did not want to help, gave multiple bits of incorrect info, and then lied and said she couldn't contact the rental company to confirm our refund for up to 10 business days because they're closed. We were literally standing in the office she claimed wasn't opened. The next rep said we need to call their number, and gave us the recorded line again. The last rep FINALLY was able to get us a refund but either way we were left without a rental vehicle and had to find another method of transportation because the company also advised they need a minimum of 24 hours notice to rent a car. It was the absolute worst experience I've ever had. I will never use a third party site again, this was beyond words.

Staff at pickup was awesome!Charged us for an extra hour when the car keys were returned to the drop box by the designated time, that added roughly $70 to the bill. Emailed and called to have the problem fixed and stil no response. Also have been charged a total of three separate times for tolls when the first charged covered the total cost. Nobody knows why that is the case and we have received no help fixing that problem either. Paid extra for a mini cooper of Fiat and instead got a ford fiesta. Will never rent from this company again.

Car hire excess insurance in Daytona Beach

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Daytona Beach car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Daytona Beach.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Daytona Beach car rental.
