Took nearly 3 hours from the time I arrived at Budget to driving off in the car. Just standing in the initial line took over an hour. Then had to wait for the car to be ready. Got the car, loaded it, realized the center console was totally dead. Had to unload and get a new car that wasn't cleaned.

Was allowed to rent a car past the time that the rental car company was open. Flight coming in was delayed so I hopped on different flight to this location, planning on renting a car to drive back home. Ended up being stranded in JFK for a night as I was never able to rent a car and all other places were booked. Had I known renting a car here wasn't possible I probably wouldn't have made flight arrangements this way

Great value for the price. Staff assures that you are getting the best value and were very kind. The car was in great condition. The only thing I would improve is more staff for times with more pick up and drop off. Other renters were very impatient and unkind to staff who were working very efficiently. There were no clear locations to park cars being dropped off which created more work for the staff. Otherwise, excellent.

Pros:

The staff at the JFK Enterprise location was absolutely fantastic. Jesse was the man who checked us in and he really made it easy for us. We made a mistake with the return of our reservation - we accidentally booked a round trip instead of a one-way rental - and he fixed it quickly and with no extra charge to us. We also had tons of bags and he offered to pull the car around so we didn't have to carry them all to the car. He really went above and beyond to make the pick-up process easy for us and was extremely friendly. The car was very clean and ran very well!

Cons:

The service at JFK getting the car was good. I picked the car up around 9:30 PM & had a 90 drive to my house. As I left the parking lot of AVIS at JFK & got on the parkway heading north to my home I noticed that there wasn't a FULL TANK OF GAS in the car. I had less than ¼ Tank of gas in the AVIS Rental Car. I then had to try to find a gas station that was opened after 10 PM. The WARNING LIGHT came on the dash board letting me know that I would probably run out of gas before I arrived to my home. I luckily found a gas station that was opened off the parkway & put more gas in the car then I originally got at the JFK AVIS location. This should never have happened. I should have had a FULL TANK of GAS when I left the AVIS location at JFK & I should be reimbursed for this rental or my next one on Nov. 20th at Westchester (White Plains).Reservation # 23531515USO

We had to wait over two and a half hours (in an un-air-conditioned building on a very hot day) to get our car. I would have thought that maybe this was an unusually busy day or something, but there was no acknowledgment from the staff that this experience was out of the ordinary. We rented from them again a couple weeks later, since we had already made the booking and didn’t have time to change it. There was still no air conditioning in the building, but at least there was no line this time. Even so, we still had to wait 45 minutes before we got our car. It is not clear to me why it took so long. We won’t rent a car from them again if we can avoid it…we’d rather pay a bit more money and see if one of the other companies has more reasonable waiting times (or at least air conditioning if we have to wait for a long time).

KAYAK

Pros:

Short line. Hand sanitizer available. In Sarasota the rental car agent credited me for the toll I had to pay at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, which was not included in the prepaid EZ Pass (which uses photo recognition for payment)

Cons:

Staff member read a script of items available to purchase such as insurance and Sirius XM and EZ Pass. Hard to hear with mask. Could have been friendlier and less robotic. Purchased the EZ Pass for the week, however EZ Pass on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel requires the EZ Pass device, or credit card payment, no photo recognition. Tool booth clerk complained that rental car companies should know this by now. Had to pay at that toll booth. Also, rental desk extremely hard to find coming in a car to pick up the car, as opposed to getting off airport shuttle. Long walk and no directions, little assistance from employees in the parking lot

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

It would’ve been great if I received a car?! My reservation was for 7 pm, I came at that time and was told there are no cars available. Asking when I would get a car wasn’t helpful: they told me they don’t know. I wasn’t given any options what I should do, when I can get a car or anything... Very poor customer service.

Literally everything. Inconvenient location. Unfriendly staff. First car they gave me didn’t have a working radio. The second one had stains all over the seats and garbage under the seat. Spend an extra couple dollars and rent elsewhere.

Cons:

We mentioned we were going upstate and it would be snowing. We were told the car would be fine but it certainly was not!! It was so dangerous and did not grasp on to the road so several times we thought we were going to crash as we had no control over the car. we would've gladly paid more to be safe

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was clean

Cons:

Did not have the car that I reserved. I reserved a full size and they did not honor my reservation. All they had was a economy car. It ruined my trip. Also, the shuttle took 3 stops (30 minutes) to get to the rental parking lot. Very inconvenient.

Dec 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

When I arrived to pick up the car I reserved a week in advance at 9:45 AM, it was unavailable because I was "late" for my 9 AM pick up time. Economy did not contact me and was unable to offer me any assistance. They also stated they do not take walk-ins only reservations, so it was easy to determine that a car had never been available that day. Two other customers present at the time with reservations also arrived to find that there were no cars available. An abysmal experience. I can not believe Economy can run a business this way.

Pros:

Fast check out, good location with other major rental brands

Cons:

Car was in mediocre condition. Probably explains the good price. They tried to sell me a Fast Pass claiming if I used a toll road and didn’t have it, I’d be charged $25. Simply not true.

Pros:

So checkin was quick..

Cons:

That being said when I was sent out to the lot to pick up the car, the attendants were in cars listening to music. One of them refused to get out and pointed to another car. On drop off, there was no one outside. I left the headlights on pointed at the office and it took 5 minutes for someone to come out and check us out. The Kia Sorento had zero options. Really nothing. They wanted $23.95 a day for EzPass. Hertz charges $3.95

3.2 Poor

Mar 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

We were very angry and disappointed that we were faced with a 145% increase in our cost to rent our car due to the exhorbitant premium for an EZE Pass for the week. We were expecting to pick up our car, having already paid the rental charges and be on our way. We were then informed that if we were going thru tolls, we would be unable to pay cash. Unless we paid for the EZE pass ($226 incl taxes and fees) then we would be charged $25 for each time we went thru a toll plus the cost of the toll. We were staying with family in Arverne meaning frequent use of tolls. We were astounded - how can that kind of premium be added at pickup with no warning (e.g. we had booked the car 2 months in advance with no notice re additional cost of EZE pass.. We were also treated with shame and guilt that we would even question these charges. We would like some explanation why you would inflict this kind of usury on an unsuspecting client who rented from you in good faith. We would ask for an adjustment to the EZE portion of our bill and direct communication with the executive in your company who chose to set these rates. Chris & Charleen Evans

Cons:

Arrived at the airport at 5 am only to be informed they had no cars. I had to beg to just get refunded. The attendant was incredibly inept and indifferent. Then I had to find another car from another agency and paid triple what I thought I would be paying. I will only rent from professional agencies from now on.

Feb 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

Your website said nothing about advantage needing a $200 deposit on top of he payment I already paid to you. My confirmation said it was pre-paid in full. I didn’t have enough credit to hold he deposit and therefore did not receive the car I rented. This was very upsetting. You should really state deposit information clearly and in bold when a person is booming through your site. I purchased insurance through your site and would like it refunded ($18) if possible. I wasted my time and close to $50 in transportation fees to get to and from the rental location.
