Pros: Great customer service! I had a great experience at the Honolulu Airport location!
31 Mar 2016
Pros: Easy to get to.....
22 Apr 2016
Pros: Convenient/ friendly staff
10 May 2016
Pros: Fast and very easy. Great customer service and very economical car.
29 Jul 2016
Pros: There was not a whole lot that I liked.
Cons: They gave me a Volkswagen Beetle. The car was too small, it under performed on the roads, and it was not the choice I made during reservations.
31 Oct 2015
pricing very deceptive
Cons: we hired a car on honolulu on the 15th Oct.
confirmation number LADP0644a7ad
while on the web site advantage compared as cheap, i was really unimpressed at the level of add on's and your fuel charge at $7.99 a gallon, when the average local price is around $3.10, what a complete rip off.
I will not be recommending advantage. poor experiance
5 Nov 2015
Pros: Easy to book on line cheap rate
Cons: You get what you pay for! They ask you to to bring the receipt for when top off the gasoline and if they feel like the gas station is more than 10 minutes away then you have to pay a gallon of gas! They charge 7$ for one gallon I used the car the whole day and it cost me 6$ to refill because the car does 30 miles per gallon. But they argued and we argued back to avoid the charge and management got involved then they finally agreed the we shouldn't be charged.
The tug of war for 7$ bucks was ridiculous will never use them again.
7 Nov 2015
Cons: They charged me a refueling fee even though I had filled up the tank on my way to the airport. Showed the young lady my receipt.. Will cost them my future business. I will be going to Hawaii often to see my daughter and I'm sure one of the other car companies will enjoy my repeat business....
15 Nov 2015
Cons: Waiting 2+hours to get the car since they were out of all cars.
19 Nov 2015
Cons: You wake up in your hotel and your car isn't working. You call advantage, and they tell you to tow the car 100 miles to the airport at your expense, so you can take your family to breakfast at 2pm. I would never rent from them again!
Pros: Great Price. Great Car. Fast friendly service. Couldn't be happier.
Cons: Nothing. Liked it all.
7 Nov 2015
Missed the mark
Pros: Affordable internet rate and nice facility
Cons: The Attitude of the individual who sent us off with the car. Looked at me like I was an idiot when I asked a question about previous damage on the vehicle and got into a staring match or something. It's the only way I can describe it. I asked him a question and he just stared at me. I felt like I was in high school again. Bottom line the dude was incredibly unprofessional and is not helping leave a good impression on the facility.
Additionally I drove the car for about 50 miles. The vehicle was a fiat and had 7/8ths of a tank remaining. I was then charged for 3-4 gallons of gas. I highly doubt that the fiat has 24 or 32 gallon tank. If you are going to charge a higher premium for the fuel at the station then charge the correct quantity
8 Nov 2015
Pros: the car itself, although not cleaned well from previous renter
Cons: all the costs that are not disclosed up front. daily rental cost appears low, but be prepared for actual rental to be 3 times higher than your quoted because of overpriced insurance, fuel fee, and other hidden fees. I'll never rent from alamo again and I'll never trust ptices listed by kayak.
19 Nov 2015
Pros: They ran out of full size so they gave us a convertible which was great to see the island. Car had a few lights out but they waved fuel service charge
4 Dec 2015
smooth process, no problems
Pros: I booked the car on my phone while I was walking from baggage claim to the rental center. No problems picking it up at all. The car was comfortable and adequate to the task.
14 Dec 2015
Pros: The staff at the desk tuck care of me and Candace at the car return treated me with patience, professionalism, and aloha.
17 Dec 2015
Pros: The car was fine, I more so had a problem with the booking. I opted for full insurance on your website and it wasn't the policy I needed. I ended up canceling the policy and losing money due to exchange rate, the insurance I actually needed was liability and that wasn't an option on your website. And it literally doubled the price of the rental. If I would have known that I probably wouldn't have done it that way, but I had changed my plans and hotel because of the car rental and it was to late to change my plans again. So I don't appreciate not knowing what the realistic price was going to be from booking through you. It makes me not want to deal with Kayak, it really had nothing to do with Alamo...
28 Dec 2015
Pick up-drop off
Pros: We could find a way to get the pick up at Waikiki instead of taking s bus to the airport etc. people were friendly.
12 Jan 2016
Great Rental Agency
Pros: Very FAST rental agency, great car (got a 4-door sedan as an "economy"), and overall awesome experience.
Cons: I liked everything about this rental. Even the return was fast (under 1 minute) with no issues.
18 Jan 2016
Pros: Truly enjoyed the customer service after a long flight. The selectionsecond for vehicles was abundant. Got to rent a brand new car
Cons: Slack service. Was charged .8/gal for fuel after filling up and confirming that the needle was on F. I didn't see the $7.99 fuel surcharge on my receipt until I got home. I should have paid closer attention to this location's low ratings.
13 Nov 2015
Quick, easy, great price-point
Pros: The rental booking and pickup was very easy and quick. We got the car we wanted and were very happy with Dollar
18 Nov 2015
Reliable Rental Agency
Pros: Over the years my wife and I have had positive experiences when renting from Dollar, and found more of the same for this last rental. The customer service agent was not pushing add-ons or a vehicle upgrade. Instead, she made recommendations based on our particular situation and needs (our car was in the shop for about a week for computer repairs). As long as Dollar has vehicles for rent at reasonable prices they will be at the top of our list for consideration.
Cons: There were some extraneous surface scratches on our vehicle that didn't bother us, but it was somewhat disconcerting that no one verified those blemishes at the time of checking out the vehicle. Without that verification by an employee, an unscrupulous agency might attempt to bill renters for the blemishes again and again without the renter having any documentation to show that the blemishes were pre-existing.
19 Nov 2015
Pros: No problems, easy pick up, car was clean and in good shape.
Cons: A little trouble finding the drop off as dollar is not located with the other rental car returns.
22 Nov 2015
Pros: The car was ok, size was correct.
Cons: Was swindled into buying insurance while booking online. Then when I got there they said that they don't accept 3rd party insurance and I had to buy their coverage. I ended up paying twice the amount for insurance than I dod for the actual car.
23 Nov 2015
Pros: There were no lines so I was seen quickly and drove away within 10 minutes of arriving at the counter. Everything was very straightforward and just as I expected.
24 Nov 2015
Pros: The price was very reasonable and the staff were very courteous. The car was clean and comfortable.
Cons: I arrived early in the morning and there was only one person at the counter to serve all the customers. The line was not huge but there was a line of customers. Eventually another staff member came in and set up and helped customers which helped but it would have been nicer if there had been more staff to help.
30 Nov 2015
Pros: Car was clean and ran well. No issues during my stay
Pros: friendly interaction fron the shittle pickup to counter.
18 Oct 2015
Pros: Nice car
Cons: They upsold me even though I spent hours researching the best deal.
21 Oct 2015
Honolulu HI review
Pros: Ease of rental, friendly staff in Honolulu.
Cons: In Honolulu, the car return is quite far from the Hawaiian Airlines terminal, and with infrequent shuttle service, i was not able to make my flight, which only leaves once a day.
31 Oct 2015
Read your receipt carefully
Pros: It's close to most the terminals.
Cons: I will never go to this budget again. If you rent a car for a week it cost "less" than renting one for 3 days. If you use your own insurance it cost "more" than if you use theirs because they have a special. DOUBLE check your receipt carefully. After spending way too long discussing renting options I rent a van based on my travel dates. I should have looked at the receipt carefully. When I returned the car I was charged 1 extra day and a fee. The receipt had the car return a day earlier but i clearly told the guy I was flying my flight details and how many dates of need the car. The WHOLE thing was awful. There are always hidden fees when renting cars in this case I paid 170 more than expected.
22 Nov 2015
Pros: Pick up and drop off very easy
22 Nov 2015
Cons: fast service
24 Nov 2015
Pros: Cockroaches in vehicle
26 Nov 2015
Ford Fiesta Engine Problems
Cons: The car would stop and start and stutter when I press the gas pedal. It definitely had some engine problems.
2 Jan 2016
Pros: It was very easy. Staff was very friendly and the whole process was quick.
11 Jan 2016
Pros: Everything was taken care of for us. Got our luggage walked right outside terminal to rental car area and the car was ready. Took 5 minutes and we were on our way.
Pros: The car was clean and comfortable to drive. Customers service was friendly and helpful.
Cons: The price per day was very expensive compared to other rental company. Wish I did more research since the fee were very high.
27 Aug 2016
Quick and easy!
Pros: Friendly team with great follow up on our satisfaction.
28 Aug 2016
Great Customer Service
Pros: The customer service was amazing. Friendly and attentive staff both on pick up and drop off. Great car too.
1 Sep 2016
Pros: Reasonable price
Cons: But the price could be cheaper
13 Jul 2016
Cons: We walked 3 miles to the pick up location and they did not have a car for us. So we asked if they could help us with a shuttle or getting another car and they didn't really do much to try to help. They couldn't make change of our 5 for bus fare, so that sucked, i know it was busy but I just would have liked to know that there was no car available.
21 Aug 2016
Not my first choice
Cons: Over head center panel compartment was broken on Dodge Minivan. It fell down twice the second time hit passenger in the head drew blood. We informed counter and crew as the interior was black and there was a lot of blood. They offered apology (Maybe this happens there all the time). Also we reserved a 5 passenger SUV and when arrived given a choice of Fiat or Minivan of course WE HAD TO CHOOSE THE MINIVAN.
25 Sep 2016
Pros: We valued the upgrade, thank you.
Cons: The image of the car when booking is a convertible chev 200 - clearly it is not this car on offer but it is misleading.
19 Aug 2016
Pros: I liked how friendly everyone was that I talked to. They were very helpful and pleasant!
Cons: The car was disgustingly dirty and had a horrible smell that got worse everyday. That would be my only complaint though, everything else was very good!
9 Sep 2016
Enterprise does it again
Pros: Once again Enterprise provided great customer service, fast check-in and a clean, brand new car.
15 Sep 2016
Pros: Agent Katelyn (sp?) was kind enough to offer me a better rate since the rates had dropped after making my reservation. Never had that happen before and I was extremely grateful. Her service was excellent and returning the car was also a pleasant experience.
Pros: The staff at Thrifty was friendly but rushed. Bus drivers were nice and very helpful.
Cons: We'd requested a convertible but the only one they had was a Jeep. It was fun but not secure. The back windows are just zipped in place and could easily have been unzipped.
15 Oct 2015
Pros: Decent van with a reasonable price, performed fine. Check in went smoothly.
Cons: When picking up the car, we had to wait over 30 minutes to occupy the vehicle after paying for it. The windshield wasn't totally clean inside.
When signing for the car, the agent gave me the option of having them fill the fuel tank upon it's return at the going gas prices at a service station, which I accepted. She did NOT tell me that I would get charged for a full tank whether or not it was nearly full or empty.
1 Nov 2015
Pros: I was a good clean car rental.
Cons: The very LONG line to Pickup the car. I waited almost 1 hr to pick up the car! Way to long! Trin
16 Nov 2015
my desk agent was great. dropoff hard ton find wit
Pros: Desk agent was great. Car.ran well.
Cons: Low on wiper fluid
. Dropoff hard.to find
18 Nov 2015
Pros: Staff were quick & courteous
Cons: It's not Thrifty's fault but their location is off the airport and the streets in Oahu suck to navigate so it was difficult to drop the vehicle off.
24 Nov 2015
Pros: Fast easy service!!! Very friendly!! Pickup and drop off was so fast!!
2 Dec 2015
Be careful at the pickup desk.
Cons: Price increases over quote
Made the return time much earlier than the time we had picked it up without telling us.
30 Dec 2015
Thrifty at HNL Rocks!
Pros: Outstanding service from beginning to end!!
25 Jan 2016
Pros: Sign in was fast and great . Check out fast and great ride to and from airport A+
Cons: The breaks squealed very bad I assume they are ware out. The mirrors and windows were very dirty.
18 Feb 2016
Cons: Customer service at pickup was very poor. Used a lot of scare tactics to try and upsell additional insurance and pre-paid fuel. Some of their comments were complete lies.
Also, the price quoted on my reservation from Kayak was different than what my final cost ended up being. Kayak quoted me a daily cost (6 days) but Thrifty charged me a weekly cost (7 days even though I only used 6). Not sure if that was a problem with Kayak or with Thrifty.
Employees were unprofessional and unfriendly. Loca
Cons: Car was dirty and smelly.
13 Oct 2015
Cons: Sketchy sketchy car rental place with HORRIBLE customer service. Front desk girl is very unfriendly, just rude for no reason and gives no instructions whatsoever.
Kayak should not allow this rental place as an option. I wish I'd have paid a few bucks more for a brand name car rental place so that I wouldn't have to stress out about this sketchy place. Horrible reviews on google.Com also.
18 Oct 2015
Cons: Bad customer service
19 Oct 2015
Pros: Pleasant people and quick efficient process. Good price.
Cons: Car was 4 years old. Remote buttons on keys did not work.
24 Oct 2015
Pros: very accommodating. Older car (2008) but clean and ran well.
Cons: Driver door power door lock inoperative. had to lock manually. Fine for me, but could have been bad if I had not noticed that the key fob only locked 3 of the 4 doors. Theft from rental cars can be a problem anyway, so why make it easy. They made a note of it when I returned the car, and assured me that it would be repaired.
26 Oct 2015
Great Price! Great Car!
Pros: The car was nice and the price was great.
The staff was very friendly and easy to work with. I will definitely use them again!
Cons: No complaints.
26 Oct 2015
Budget value - budget service
Pros: Price was great - car was clean and we got a lot for the money. Traveling around Oahu by car was super - gas is cheaper than we thought it would be and it is so easy to get around the island to see all the sights and experience all the wonders of Oahu.
Staff was friendly. Shuttle picked us up from the airport and it was a quick jaunt to the rental office.
Cons: Facilities were not the nicest - you are not paying for a big budget car rental company facility. It was disappointing that there was no shuttle back to the airport as we had to make an early flight and the office didn't open until 9 am. Be prepared to call a taxi if you are dropping off early - it worked out fine but it's an extra hassle and expense that it is good to be aware of.
26 Oct 2015
Rent from somewhere else...
Cons: This place is a used car lot that also rents cars. When I saw 'Economy Rent a Car' I thought it was the legit company you see ads for, but this place is actually 'A1 Economy Rent a Car' or something like that. I think they're banking on the fact that their name is similar so people think it's the car company we're expecting. The car was dirty and obviously no care was given to clean the inside either. There were still wrappers in the console from the last person and you could see that nothing had been wiped down. I would rather have spent my money with a good car rental company. It was disappointing. Rent from somewhere else. The car looked and felt old and used.
17 Nov 2015
Cons: Pick up and drop off terrible inconvenience
17 Nov 2015
Pros: That they had a mini van available
Cons: we rented two minivans once we arrived they Weren't clean it took a long time to check put. The drive there was hot and smelly. Once we returned the vans we took a shuttle to the airport which was too crowded. Once we got to the airport The driver got upset because we weren't taking out money for tip. He started to mumble words that indicated that we were cheap. I was so busy getting my things and my two year old and when I heard him say that it made me even more upset. I hated this rental company. Wouldn't rent anything from them again!!!!!!
Cons: We arrived with me having paid for the car rental but my boyfriend due to drive the car. Paid $50 for taxi to Avis desk only to get there and be told that I also needed to show my driving licence even though i wasn't driving the car! I didn't have it with me and it would have cost $100 in taxi fares to go back and get it. Called Car Trawler who were no help, nor was the Avis representative. My boyfriend ended up paying ANOTHER $100 to hire the same car we'd already paid to hire. Shocking service, we both work in the travel industry and will never use or recommend Avis or Car Trawler ever again.
22 Oct 2015
Hawaii rental experience
Pros: Prompt service; staff not pushy
Cons: The directions to the facility from baggage claim are poorly marked and require quite a bit of walking in the heat
24 Dec 2015
Cons: Waited in line for an hour to get car. Suspension is car was terrible and windshield wipers didn't work properly
9 Jan 2016
Dirty mustang but cheap!
Pros: Tried to sell upgrade for $20 negotiated to $10 for mustang I didn't really want but glad I got. But since I didn't have time to refuel, I got hit harder than a compact car. No biggie, rentalcars.com saved the day with lowest price.
4 Mar 2016
Pros: They upgraded us to a BMW 5 series which was an ideal car for the week, lots of trunk space, navigation, comfortable.
Cons: No real complaints, pretty simple and straightforward rental.
3 Apr 2016
Cons: I called to update drop off time by 1hr and was charged 40doll
6 Jul 2016
Cons: Bad customer service and road side assistance
4 Jul 2016
Pros: Coby at the Sheraton service desk gave excellent service, quick, efficient, computer terminal adept and had us on our way in 5 min. Good job.
Return was easy except for making 14 circles up to the top of the Sheraton parking garage to drop the van in the Avis reserved parking spot.
Pros: The guy who helped us at the desk was really great, and so was the man who took us to our car! Amazing customer service on Monday morning.
25 Mar 2016
Cons: The pick up location is too misleading.
8 Sep 2016
Pros: I picked up my car at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu (Rycroft) and was treated with courtesy and friendliness by two gentlemen (one Asian guy and one haole).
Both were efficient in getting me a good vehicle.
They subsequently checked me back in quickly.
Cons: I didn't like the pickup location at first, but then I said to myself "quit complaining!"
