MisinformedPros:The car was clean. It would've been an economical car to travel in.Cons:We were offered a CHOICE to take or not take the EZ pass for the toll roads. We asked if we really would need it, couldn't we just pay the toll. We were told some tolls u could pay and some not. With our gps we figured we could make it work. ALL toll roads in Florida are now no pay...the take a pic of your plate. And here's maybe why we were given a choice...the average toll is a little over one dollar. The fee we will be charged for the 2 times we drove our car will be 25.00 EACH trip. Talk about inflation! Yes, we were trying to save money..but I feel if this option had been fully explained when questioned about we would've left Florida without feeling screwed.Reviewed 8 Jun 2016

Cons:There was no one at the counter when I arrived and the phone numbered given was no longer in service. That made me very leery and concerned. Even the 800 number said “we are not taking calls”, send us an email. After waiting over 25 minutes an agent arrived, but during the check in process he was very short and eventually became very, very rude. To the point that I walked away and rented else where. His name was AJ. It seems this company may be going out of business as while waiting I called Two other locations and their numbers were also not working. To bad because they used to be good with happier employees.Reviewed 16 Aug 2020

Pros:The price.Cons:You get what you pay for with Advantage rental car. The shuttle from the airport was slow and the customer service reps were robotic. They make you feel guilty if you don't get their insurance and try every sales pitch to get you to add it to your rental, as well as include the toll fees in your rental. They tried to get me into a larger car, "only $7/day extra" which would have cost an additional $70 at least. The car I got was dirty, dented, scratched and had almost 30,000 miles on it. It took me longer to complete the the damage paperwork than it did to get to my final destination. I won't rent from them again. In the future, I'll go with the larger, well known car rental companies. Like I said, you get what you pay for.Reviewed 13 Dec 2015

Cons:It took a while for the shuttle to slow up once the pick up area was found. People at the airport were not friendly at all when asked where the shuttle area was at. Once at the "office" area, was disappointed at the variety of cars available. Online the ad indicated they had GM vehicles, only 1 on the lot - smaller than reserved. The car had some slight damage to it, no windshield fluid, dirty inside and the passenger seat was falling apart. The rental price was more than the price online. Personnel in the office were not very friendly. Actually they seemed more interested in their cell phones or something else than to rent a vehicle to us.Reviewed 29 Mar 2016

Pros:Staff during the check-in process was great. The lady at the counter was very friendly.Cons:Getting the care was different. Unfortunately, Advantage didn't have any staff there and one of the other companies was handling their vehicles. The poor guy was flying solo while handling his company and Advantage. To top it off the first car had an issue with the seat and they had to get another car cleaned and to me, which added about 20-minutes. Also, if you can update the information on the site to show that the pickup location is in TPA's Rental Car Center. It shows an off-site location and I was momentarily lost until someone pointed me in the right direction.Reviewed 28 Jun 2021

Pickup Experience Could be betterPros:The car itself was great, location was close to a gas station and the airport. The drop off experience was awesome (maybe spent 5 minutes at the location, and no wait for the shuttle.Cons:Shuttle to pickup came infrequently, and no number to call to request a pickup. When we finally got to the location, it took over 30 minutes to get the car, there was about 10 people arriving at the same time to pickup cars, and only 2 people working. Also, was told I should pay $50 to upgrade to the category I originally had reserved.Reviewed 11 Jan 2016

You pay for what you getPros:I liked that the rental rate was affordable compared to their competitors (enterprise, Avis, etc) Customer service was great.Cons:When I received the exterior was dirty and needed a car wash/ detailing. You could tell they did not clean the car well from the last renter. The car also had scratches and dings on the car at the time of pick up. When I went to drop this car off they accused me of scratching and denting the car when clearly the scratches were already there.Reviewed 4 Jan 2016
