10.0 Excellent21 Oct. 2020
Pros: drop off was very easy in Charlotte. Someone was waiting to scan my car as I pulled up. I also got a bigger car than I expected because they didn't have any compacts, so that was a nice surprise!
4.0 Okay30 Sep. 2020
Pros: The car was nice for valueCons: I had made a reservation 3 months prior to our trip when we arrived at the airport the customer service lady said it would be about 5 minutes after 30 minutes of waiting we went to the calendar to see how much longer it would be and the lady at the counter was very rude and then a loud voice stating that this is a small airport and we were going to have to wait it was then another 20 minutes that we finally got our rental car. When we finally got the car and I looked at the paperwork it said the gas gauge was full and there was only three quarters of a tank in the car
8.4 Excellent22 Sep. 2020
Pros: yesCons: I couldn't figure out how to open the trunk

Pros: Staff was terrific, gave us an upgrade! Easy drop of too!
5.2 Okay9 Mar. 2019
Pros: When we went to pick up the vehicle at the reserved time they claimed they had none. My husband had to find a way there the next day because I was already out of town with our personal vehicle. He was able to get the vehicle Saturday morning and returned it Sunday morning. They charged us 272.00.Cons: I had to call Budget main number and fight with them for 3 days to get the agreed upon price through you. Even so that was too much because the original reservation was for Thursday- Sunday and he had it Friday- early Sunday morning. I really feel at the Hilton Head airport Budget is scamming people
7.2 Good15 Feb. 2019
Cons: We were about 30 min past our reservation and our car had been given to someone else. They gave us a different one but I’ve never had that happen where being a couple minutes late or early means you no longer get the class of car you paid for.
10.0 Excellent10 Dec. 2018
Pros: Guys at counter were great, very courteous andhelpful

10.0 Excellent20 Mar. 2017
Cons: First time to the airport so it was a little tough to find.
2.0 Mediocre16 Mar. 2017
TerribleCons: I made a reservation and specifically asked there was a car available on the phone while speaking to a person, not the computer, but when I arrived to pick my car up there was not a car there!!! When I questioned the attendant, he said there was nothing he could do for me. Consequently, I ended up spending over $100.00 more than I should have because another rental (Hertz) said they only had a van. I believe this should be Alamo'so responsibility. I also believe the attendant could have been much more helpful! He at least could have checked with all the other rental companies to see if there was a cheaper option. I would really like a response!!!
7.6 Good12 Mar. 2017
Young Driver FeeCons: I am 24 so I accept that I needed to pay an extra fee. However, when I booked, I correctly input my age. I was not charged the fee until I actually picked up the car which I found frustrating. Also, there was no cruise control.
10.0 Excellent27 Feb. 2017

HHI Airport rental car nightmare.Cons: Huge line. Booked few hours earlier but they had no record of my booking. Had to wait for clerk to call her manager, leave a voice mail, then wait for him to call back in order to get a car. Didn't get the car I wanted. Didn't get a receipt, temporary registration, or any documentation from Alamo or Kayak. Initially told car had a full tank but was only half full. The clerk also told me the insurance I bought through Allianz didn't cover damage to the car despite that being incorrect, then she charged be for Alamo insurance without my consent which I had to call to get a charge back a few days later to correct. Terrible experience.

Never Use ThemPros: NothingCons: Failed to have my reserved vehicle causing me to rent a car from another company at 10 times the original rental rate. Not $10. Orders of magnitude. Then demonstrated no concern over not having vehicle. Should be sued by the attorney general.

2.0 Mediocre14 Jul. 2020
Cons: Wring car, didnt care, no discount, then the crappy wrong car had NO GAS in the tank. Took it back next day ans went with Avis. Now i am still being billed for Hertz.
2.0 Mediocre6 Jul. 2020
Cons: I was told there was no car available for me and that I could wait to see if they had anything the next day. Then they were shocked i wanted to cancel the reservation. I had planned a cross country trip and needed to leave early in the morning the next day. So I was left scrambling to find another car from another business. Luckily the Budget counter had something for me and they were able to help me out. Now I know to go to Budget instead of Hertz in the future.
10.0 Excellent7 Nov. 2018
Pros: Very quick and easy drop off in Hilton Head. Loved the car!
7.6 Good6 Apr. 2018
I learned NEVER TO PREPAY for a carPros: Diane from the airport Savannah/Hilton Head was awesome! She helped me figure out an option when I realized that I reserved the rental car through the wrong airport. She helped me remain calm and found us a minivan that would accommodate my large family & our luggage.Cons: Unfortunately, I learned that if you accidentally order a car and pay in advance..and accidentally book the wrong airport (there are 2 Hilton head labeled airports), you cannot transfer any of the prepaid car to the new location. I paid in full for 5 days and Hertz said it's a locked in deal so they wouldn't honor even a discount. So, I had to pay for 2 vehicles on my trip. Completely, not cool.

Pros: Good experience and will make reservations through kayak and hertz in the future.

2.0 Mediocre8 Aug. 2017
No car available and poor customer service handling itPros: Nothing.Cons: I was unable to get car because the rep said none were available. He said because I had a debit card he couldn't rent me one even if he had one because they don't except debit as payment without a deposit. When I said I was ok with the deposit he said it didn't matter because the payment couldn't be made using a debit card. When I showed him hertz had already charged my account for the rental he told me to take it up with kayak. I left without a car and called hertz twice explaining the situation and both times I was told I'd receive a refund. The first time I received a credit which was then again debited from my account 2 days later. The second time has resulted in nothing. I get the debit card policy but this was handled poorly from the start and I'm out $65 with no reasonable explanation or response.
8.4 Excellent28 Jul. 2017
Buy your car insurance online beforehandPros: Great car, easy check in/check out, good price.Cons: The car insurance was sooooooo expensive, more than the rental car itself. Usually I purchase the insurance before I pick up the rental, but this time I forgot and boy did I pay. Also, I was 45 minutes late with my return so I got charged for another day of insurance. They got me good.
7.2 Good10 Jul. 2017
Pros: pickup and drop off was easyCons: it was unclear if my hertz gold account was applied we weren't able to look at the car together to inspect it, i just had to take pictures

FAIL!Pros: Nothing.Cons: The Thrifty agent was not there, so I was stuck without a car and I was trying to make a flight at a different airport. I had to rent a more expensive car at Hertz in order to make the flight. This was awful, and I am going to contact Thrifty reimburse me.
4.0 Okay7 Apr. 2017
Not happy with carPros: Car ready when I arrive. Quick return.Cons: There was no cruise control. This was not stated to me at check-in. Yet the agent asked where I am going. I was traveling over 800 miles in 2 days. The agent asked me about other things. The brakes pulled a little. Gas mileage on an small car was not great. There was a refundable $200 deposit that was never told to me before I booked the car. They had my credit card. Why do they hold $200. I am not a new driver. Had better experience with other car rental companies in the past.
