Long lines. Pushy service.

Cons: The whole set up at SFO is quite tedious. My salesman really pushed an upgrade when I didn't want one for the price. My "cheap" rental ended up being super expensive.

Pros: The car was new and clean and had a full tank of gas.
Cons: They kept trying to add all sorts of fee's and insisting on extra's and adding them without asking. The total came out to 4x what ways originally agreed to. Then when I complained and said I wasn't paying that price she couldn't figure out how to remove every thing she added. I spent over 2 hours trying to get it all sorted and another hour waiting for the car. It was 2am by the time I got out of there.

Avoid Alamo - they are scammers
Pros: The courtesy shown by agent in San Francisco during pick up
Cons: - car was not the one I paid for, I paid for a Ford Mustang convertible - car came damaged with scratches on the side and on the side view mirror - car was only 80% full of gas - during drop off at LAX the Alamo asked to see what insurance I had, when she saw I was not protected against certain things the agent tried to blame me for a dent above the wheel - this is ridiculous! I am the most careful driver ever and only had the car for 24 hours 10000% without any incident -agent at LAX drop off was very rude and accused me several times without justification

Pros: Very efficient hand over of the car at Inglewood Very comfortable car
Cons: Poor directions on where to return car - a map would help! More info needed on what the return procedure is. Car was excellent - but little information given about the insurance options. Expected to get insurance through KAYAK, but had to use the ALAMO insurance Headlights were not adjusted properly (shining too high) a lot of annoyed drivers when driving at night. Would have expected to have a built in GPS for such an expensive car

Good overall, but have had better
Pros: The people who work for Alamo in my experience have shown excellent customer service. On both sides of my drive from SF to NY, they were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The vehicle was in good shape and I experienced no problems driving across the country.
Cons: No rental providers have full-size van options available. So I don't hold that against Alamo individually. However, the Chrysler Town&Country I rented had the auxiliary audio and Bluetooth disabled, which for a week-long cross country trip was extremely disappointing. In the past 3 years, every rental I've purchased had these features standard.

Never renting from Alamo again
Pros: The rental was cheap and clean. Nissan Versas are great cars.
Cons: The dropoff location was poorly located. I spent nearly three hours searching for the dropoff, on the phone with customer support, and eventually having to extend the rental an extra day to return it later. Terrible experience, never renting with Alamo again.

Working rental at a great rate
Pros: Not the fanciest car (Hyundai Accent) in the world but a great, comfortable ride and the rate (through Kayak) was great. Drop off at SFO couldn't be easier.
Cons: Tire pressure was low when we picked the car up.

Lived up to my expectations.
Pros: The staff was very professional and one on time. There wasn't a huge line unlike other car rental business. They had inventory and a large variety.
Cons: My only suggestion for this specific location, would be to have an overnight drop off. We only needed the car for the day to explore the bay area. Our hotel was in Union Square next to Enterprise and overnight parking is expensive. Our hotel charged $50/night. We didn't need the car the following day and would have prefer to return it back to Enterprise. This suggestion/concern only comes because in past trips we were able to do overnight drop off at other car rental businesses including Enterprise.

After nightmare pickup, smooth sailing
Pros: Car was new and had a precious sub port for music, making our roadtrip smooth sailing.
Cons: Pickup took an hour in the SF Union st location. They had the cars and were nice people, but seemed understaffed - way behind on turning them around. Even on a relatively calm Monday, the people in front of us stacked up 5 groups deep. We would have appreciated a more clean car, but we're so happy to finally be called up that we took it right away, sticky doors and dirty Windows and all!

Bad to Good outcome
Pros: Our car was brand new. The one day rate was very competitive.
Cons: At pick up, a car was not available so we were directed to try other agencies?! After trying around no other cars were available so we thought we were going to uber around. We went back to enterprise to see if they could get us a car at another location. Amazingly a car just arrived that we were able to take. A very nice agent helped us by the name Katie. She apologetically got us set up quickly and we had a brand new SUV which was an upgrade from our original rental. They also waived an after hours early return fee. What was going to be a bad situation turn red out to be agreat outcome. A big thank you to Katie!:)

Was given the wrong vehicle
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I tried to call Kayak to complain the morning I picked up the car - I booked a convertible, went to pick it up and on arrival was told there had no cars at all left. They eventually found me a sedan and said I could t have a convertible. I was offered no refund and did not get a convertible. Enterprise rental told me I have to sort it out with Kayak, but their offices were closed on Sunday so I was forced to take the wrong car at risk of not getting a refund and having no car. Also the tank was completely empty as they said they didn't have time to prepare the car.

easy pick-up --- easy drop-off
Pros: we were staying in the city, and wanted a car for one-day to drive north into Marin and Sonoma counties... walked one block to pick up the car at the Hertz desk inside a lovely hotel. Returned the car to the valet parking attendant upon our evening return to the city... cannot be better... MDC

Criminals
Cons: These jack holes jacked up the price almost $200 on pick up. And didn't include a jack (or a tire) in the boot to boot! Service was some jacked out green-screen operator on a creepy skype call thing at the airport, and then my clan and I had to walk. And walk. And walk. "Why are we walking, p'pa?" asked my young daughter. "Did we not make a success at the hiring of an automobile? America is very great, but why is there so much walking to come to an automobile you have just sold grand m'ma's jewels to hire? P'pa... p'pa, I'm getting hungry. Is it much further?" Our poor son Edmund died of typhoid, and we lost half our supplies trying to fjord the river. Nothin' but hate, you profiteering money gluttons. Toodles.

Upselling and poor communication
Pros: Nice car, easy return
Cons: I prepaid for my car on the website ($230). When I went to pick up the car, I went through the standard up-sells and declined them (~10 minutes of saying no). When it came time to give me a car, the up-sells became less obvious and the sales person led me to believe that the cost I was reviewing was the price I paid online. She showed me cars that were way above what I had paid ($500) for about 20 minutes as I continually kept our conversation focused on the price I had already paid. She then offered me a car "30 dollars cheaper than I had paid" ($200 total) and I took it. Turns out that $200 was in addition to the $230 I had already paid. Even though I asked for confirmation that I was not paying more than I had prepaid, it retrospect, she never actually answered that question outright - she never lied, just dodged. I feel played and Hertz now feels like a sleazy company. I'll go with any of the other multiple car rental companies next time.

A bit of a hassle at drop off
Cons: There was a significant scrape on the car when we picked it up. They claimed it was our responsibility. We were in a rush to get to a flight but they made us fill out paperwork. I argued that if their records were correct to begin with, we wouldn't have to risk missing our flight.

Pros: The car performed fine and did not have any mechanical issues. We were able to get into the office 15 minutes early, which was nice considering the sketchy neighborhood the pickup location was. Staff was courteous.
Cons: Car was dirty. There were used toothpicks in the driver's side door handle, which I stabbed myself with when I unknowingly shut the door. (UGH). Gas tank was half full. Windshield looked like it had driven through a bug apocalypse. Random trash throughout vehicle. I don't think it was cleaned or checked in from the last string of renters. Rented a Toyota Camry online, got a Nissan Sentra. First world problems, right? I feel like this is the bones of a new Macklemore song.

Kayak & Dollar systems not in sync
Cons: We reserved a rental through Kayak and received a confirmation email and everything -- BUT when we arrived at the Dollar car rental they had no record of our reservation. To add insult to injury they had NO cars left. This was a very busy time in San Fransisco - none of the other rental places had any cars either. Very not cool.

25 Oct 2015
Pros: They quickly found my reservation and the pick-up process overall was quick and efficient. I was able to rent a GPS on the spot, which was very useful. Drop-off was also quick and easy, which was great since I dropped the car off at the airport and needed to quickly get to my gate.
Cons: During pickup, no one went to the car with me to identify any dents, scratches, etc., or to answer any questions I had about how to operate the car. I was only given the keys and told where the car was. Overall, this would not cause me not to rent from Dollar in the future, but it is an area that could use improvement on the company's part.

Poor service
Pros: Nothing
Cons: We booked online, minor issue with pick-up location. It took 3 staff to figure out how to find our booking. I got asked 5 times if my booking was with Dollar despite me showing the booking email on my ipad. I then got asked 3 times if my surname was dollar. When i explained I wanted to shift the pick-up or re-book to the airport, they said they couldn't do it and I had to go, sit down and book it online on my ipad and then come to the desk and they could give me the car...but could not do that for me?!?! Then there was the mysterious 30% tax that only dollar were charging, no other car company charged. We went to another company, were charged less and service was amazing. Will NOT be recommending this company to anyone!

Either Dollar or Kayak made a mistake -- I'm not s
Cons: I selected San Francisco, Non-airport, Full-Size or Standard only. Dollar displayed the lowest rate and I booked, thinking I would get something like a Toyota Corolla. When I arrived, they stuck me with the much smaller Nissan Sentra, and that was only because they didn't have something even smaller. Although I'm not sure whether the fault lies with Dollar or Kayak, I think it's your responsibility to make sure things like this don't happen to your repeat customers. One more unrelated item -- don't you think you should provide a better explanation of the bundled Allianz insurance coverage? Every car rental agency offers similar insurance at the counter, and undoubtedly, a lot of your customers are purchasing redundant coverage.

Pros: The price of my rental couldn't be beat! Returning was a breeze.
Cons: The car was marred on the fabric in several places and had burn marks. The outside was also visibly damaged in places and I was nervous I would be charged for the damage (still waiting to see). The line to pick up my car was long and delayed me about an hour, but all of the airport rental lines at SFO are very long, and this might have been the shortest one. The rental agent was pushy on trying to get me to upgrade, but that's not unique to this company.

Cons: I bought the insurance through kayak when I requested the rental car and then at pick up the national person tried to get me to buy more insurance because the insurance I got wasn't valid. Everyone tries to rip you off.

Terrible experience
Cons: Your email clearly states off airport shuttle, there isn't one.. I called the number provided in the email and it turns out this place is downtown San Francisco. So I had no car. I had to cancel it and because there was some type of computer convention most of other rental companies were out of cars. I waited 3 hours until I finally found one. I was with my young kids and over 70 year old parents. It was a nightmare.

Wrong location
Cons: The listing says off airport shuttle, there is no shuttle. Had to take a cab and then train to go all the way to downtown to pick up the car. Horrible!!!

KAYAK HAS FALSE ADVERTISING
Pros: I liked the rental car from economy rent a car. It was clean, great for the weekend and roomy.
Cons: KAYAK FALSELY ADVERTISES THIS RENTAL CAR PLACE AT SFO AIRPORT. THE COMPANY ECONOMY RENT A CAR STATED THEY HAVE TRIED TO GET THIS FIXED BUT SHOULD TRY HARDER. IT ENDED UP COSTING AN EXTRA 80.00 TO UBER TO RENTAL PLACE FROM AIRPORT THEN 40.00 TO DROP CAR OFF AT AIRPORT WHICH DIDN'T FACTOR IN THE ADDED TIME TO COMMUTE FROM AIRPORT TO GET CAR. BOTH COMPANIES ARE AT FAULT IF YOU AS ME.
2.0 Poor

THE WORST
Cons: No pick up at air port we were told to take a cab to Economy so we ended up renting from Hertz, which cost $346. Never will I book with Economy again.

Was expecting better.
Pros: Once we actually got the car all went fairly well save how uncomfortable the Nissan Juk was after only an hour driving.
Cons: Only ONE agent at rhe desk when a number of flights arrived. She had issues with the one rental customer she was serving which led to an immediate backup from everyone arriving. Saw 4 other agents wandering around for at least 15 minutes before 2 finally bellied up to the desk to help the people in line. We were 3rd in line and it STILL took an hour after lining up before we finally got to the agent at the desk. For a LARGE International airport location that is just Not acceptable. After that it went fairly quick because we had reservations. The Nissan Juk is by far the most uncomfortable car we've ever rented. On a short haul with mountain roads it might be a fun car to drive but on freeway it's a hard ride.
8.8 Excellent

Retnal in San Fran
Cons: the tire air pressure light came on saying my pressure was low. this got me a little flustered. I went to gas station and had someone put air in all tires for me. I did not want to get a flat on way to airport.

Needs Improvement
Cons: Rental car was partially blocking drive way entrance to car return. I had to backup into Post Street to go around rental car. No one was around when I arrived at drop off area. Cleanliness in drop off area could be improved.
