Hawaiian AnneversaryPros:Car was reasonably clean and in good condition. Some upholstery stains. Only when asked the shuttle driver explained "tips" in an understandable manner without putting pressure or guilt on us. Insurance was available in 3 price ranges. I bought it this time. Representative explained insurance coverage on an island costs more than on the mainland. Even with coverage from my car insurance company there could be uncovered costs. Check with your insurance provider and try to get it in writing. They took reasonable photos off the car sides and hood. The photos covered us, but just barely. I would rent again!...just a little more wisely! Happy Travels!Cons:Car had smoke smell that cleared out the end of the week. Shuttle drivers hope for larger tips because they are only paid a base like restaurant staff. A little bit of pressure to buy insurance. I decided to buy this time. Almost had an accident twice while there, but got lucky. Accused of damaging the car. Damage was not clear in the photos when we picked up the car. We were assured that the photos got everything. DON'T TAKE ANYONE'S WORD FOR THE QUALITY OF THEIR PHOTOS. INSPECT THE CAR HIGH AND LOW YOURSELF!! We were lucky this time, but from now on I will inspect the car myself and ask for extra photos. I may even take some myself before I leave the lot.Reviewed 1 Feb. 2018

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.Reviewed 26 Oct. 2015

Poor Customer ServicePros:That it was cheap.Cons:Representatives took forever to assist me even though there was only one other customer there. They’re online system was glitching when I placed my reservations so I got 4 reservations for the same dates so I had to cancel 3. They charged me $108 cancellation fees for the 3 reservations I had to cancel. When I ask the representative when I returned the rental, she didn’t know why and later called me to let me to call customer service, who couldn’t do anything but told me to email the customer service email. Worst customer service ever.Reviewed 22 Jan. 2018

“You get what you pay for”Pros:The pick up from the airport came pretty quick. The employees were very friendly. At the rental center they seemed a little short staffed, but they were still able to greet and tell me where to sign in.Cons:I was not happy with the cleanliness of the car. The car had ants crawling everywhere. Ants were in the dash, crawling in the windows, coming out of the vents, and all over the floor. I’ve rented cars in hawaii before from other places and this is the first time I have experienced Ants everywhere in the car. The front windshield was not cleaned well. It was very hard to see at night. The brake pedal cover fell off and and it was good thing i was at a stop light when it happened. It may have not been safe if it had happened while actual driving. I think they could had done a way better job cleaning the car prior to giving it to a customer. There should be a standard that it must go through before making it available for the next customer. i am thinking maybe because there was a wait that they rushed the process. i would not rent from here even with a low price. This is a great example of “you get what you pay for.”Reviewed 4 Nov. 2017

Not worth the minimal savingsPros:The staff is very friendly and they get you through the process very quickly. I also like that the come out and take photos of all angles of the car as a point of reference.Cons:I booked because I was led to believe we'd get a Buick LaCrosse or something comparable that could fit 5 pieces of luggage and five people. Instead, I was given a Nissan Versa that barely fit our luggage AND us. Also, the car had 100,000 miles on it! I don't know if ist was a miscommunication between the site we used and the company, but we felt misled. Luckily, the car held in there, but would have been unacceptable if we were doing more driving than we did. At drop off, I took a look at their "fleet" of vehicles and not only was there no Buicks, but most of the cars looked to be on the older side. I saved maybe , $20 or $30 at the most, but would have been better off spending the money on a better company that didn't use high mileage cars as rentals.Reviewed 27 Sep. 2017

Okay servicePros:Almost made me go with a smart mini car even though I had prepaid for an economy size. Finally relented and let me take a Honda Fit.Cons:The shuttle from the airport to the rental place only comes every 30-45 min. Had to call the company and ask where the shuttle was.Reviewed 28 Jan. 2018

I would stay far awayPros:The car was decent but older.Cons:The price was so much higher than what it said on the internet.We had to change our rental to less days to afford it. When we went to pick it up, I saw people, who just took their vehicle out, come back in because there was something mechanical wrong. Our tire sensor kept coming on. When we brought the car back, we asked when the shuttle would be coming back to take us to the airport and the guy was incredibly rude. When the shuttle came, she saw us standing there and she drove past us and made us walk to them a half a block up carrying our luggage. Ridiculous. Customer service is terrible and will never recommended this to anyone.Reviewed 12 Oct. 2017

It was cheap, but you get what you pay forPros:CheapCons:Cars that did not look like they were well maintained. The first car I was rented I was told to ignore the check engine light because the car was due for an oil change. I drove off and a few blocks later the car was warning me the engine was overheating. The second car was better, but still had sqeaky breaks and needed washer fluid. I understand that cheap usually means older model basic cars, but I think that I should still feel confident in driving them.Reviewed 24 Jan. 2017

The car was dirty in the inside.Pros:Nice features for a car.Cons:We did not receive the car that was advertised and we had selected. A Corolla is not equal to a Ford Fusion. The seats were stained, and the car was cleaned poorly. I will not rent from this company again. Pay the extra $20-$50-$100 and go with any other company.Reviewed 22 Jul. 2017

Good place if you want the cheapest rentalPros:It was cheaper than all the other places. People were very nice. Car worked just fine and was clean. Shuttle to the location was timely. Dropping the car off was easy as pie. You get what you pay for.Cons:The location was not at the airport, but it was only about 1 mile away. This was misleading by website tho, not their fault really. We had to wait about an hour or so when we got there because they were understaffed. The car wasn't in the greatest shape, but the essentials worked.Reviewed 11 Jul. 2017
