Nightmare rental pickup process!Pros:Airport terminal inside desk process: Fast, easy, professional. They usually give you the keys with your contract, but he instructed me to 'just go outside to our rental lot, they have the keys and car for you. "Cons:After struggling across the street to find their lot (unmarked for Payless, BTW: signage said 2 other vendors, so that was confusing) I found an unattended EZ-up. After 5 minutes or so, I was joined by another two customers, and we stood there for close to 10 more minutes before 2 men with vests and walkie-talkies appeared, who then walked in front of us and started talking, turning their backs to all of us with no acknowledgement until I too-politely said: "Hi. Can we pick up our cars, please?" Nothing. They were then joined by a woman, and their conversation continued until I politely interrupted again, "Can you please help us?" One man turned around, said "What's your car?", and when we (now 4 separate customers) told him, he said: They were just returned, they need to be cleaned. We have 140 cars and 130 of them are out. It's been like this for weeks ." (None of us were "walk up" rentals, we all had reservations in advance.) Let's sidestep that issue for a moment and point out that there was no, I mean *no* attempt at even the slightest amount of customer service here: no initial greeting or acknowledgment to the now-small-crowd of waiting people, no apologies for the delays and resulting confusion, nothing. We customers were "you, the black Sentara", "you, the white Accord", when they finally began to look for our cars. In my case, I was first told that the car needed to be cleaned, and then that my key had been "brought into the terminal with someone's paperwork by mistake", and when the woman went into the terminal for a second time to look for it, she returned to inform me that "unfortunately when your key went back inside, they assigned your car to another customer over at Budget. It happens all the time." (!!!) So, she had to go back inside with my contract and redo it with another vehicle. Only when she finally brought my new contract, AN HOUR AFTER I GOT THERE, did this one employee express any courtesy, saying" Sorry for the mixup, have a great day ". If I hadn't had 3 heavy bags, I would have just returned to the inside rental desk and canceled in the first 15 minutes of this fiasco, but I was pretty much stuck there waiting for these completely inept, unhelpful group of outside people to do something. In the meantime, watching all of the other rental lots around us, where there were competent, friendly, helpful and fast transactions, was beyond frustrating. Never again in Sarasota, at any price.Reviewed 11 Feb. 2018

Pros:That eventually I got a small car.Cons:Had reserved a small car -- but only a truck was available. Was told to come back the next day, when there would be plenty of cars, and swap it out for a small car. Did that -- told us that no cars were available (all cars reserved -- tho of course my car was reserved too). Told to come back the next day between 8-10am -- when there would surely be plenty of cars. Did...and after 30 minutes (first saying there were no cars) they found a small car. Incidentally, had tried to call ahead each time but the main office didn't know the local car situation and no one answered the phone at the local office. Local office told me that they don't have anyone available to answer the phone. This isn't a problem that can be solved without people driving all the way to the airport to find out if there are cars available?Reviewed 16 Feb. 2020
