Pros: The car was great
The employee was very kind
Cons: Insurance for third parties is ridiculous. The limit is $ 100,000 which is practically zero. In Italy that it is not a rich country the statutory minimum is € 5 million. is practically mandatory additional insurance (SLI) which costs $ 18 / day plus tax.
In addition the policy on the damage to the car (Kasko) is extra.

Everything great except mysterious rate change
Pros: Car was clean, new, and well equipped.
Staff was friendly, attentive, and interested.
24 hour service was vital, given the uncertainties of air travel arrival times (and airtrain, etc.).
Charges were very clearly itemized, no guesswork.
Cons: The rate charged was much higher than the one booked online. No explanation of this change was offered, and it was not due to additional taxes and fees which were very clearly itemized.

Pros: The fiat 500!!
Cons: It's a huge pain to get to the Newark airport.
7 Feb 2016
Cons: My flight was an hour early and because I picked up the car early it changed the amount from about $65 to over $200. Then the agent said she wouldn't charge me for a premium vehicle but she did.

Pros: The person who worked with me in Newark was efficient and personable. She couldn't have been more helpful. it was a pleasure working with her.
Cons: That I had to deliver the car to Logan Airport in Boston.

Alamo at PHL is tied to National
Pros: Price was way better than the others. Location was convenient for pick-up.
Cons: You are at the counter of National Rental Car, Alamo doesn't have their own counter here at Newark Airport so you are at the mercy of their reps. It's slow because you are in the same line that are in. The compact Mitsubishi car I rented (Mirage) was horrible. It felt highly unstable cornering and had a top heavy feeling.

Cons: Initially, when looking at the deals that popped up on KAYAK, I tried several times to book the first couple of price quotes that were found. Each time I would fill out all of the information, only to be told when submitting the reservation that this price was no longer available. To have price quotes appear in the search results that were no longer available was very frustrating.

Check your bank statement for deposit/hold refund
Cons: Charged me $250 deposit and didn't refund it until I called to complain.
Very poor customer service on pick up.
Very aggressive up selling on pick up.
6 Sep 2016
Cons: The staff at Alamo declined my reservation and I ended up paying the double amount
19 Sep 2016
Pros: friendly staff
easy vehicle access and drop off
car type reserved wasn't available but offered upgrade
Cons: Signs for Alamo not listed on the AirTrain so a brief moment of panic re where to get off...
car hood wasn't fully secured when we took possession, didn't realize this until we were on the GS Parkway and another motorist pointed it out, thankfully!
