Pros: staff was okay, he was trying to sell me some insurance and an upgrade and some gas which was obviously over priced. I booked a jetta vw, he gave me a kia soul without telling me which I don't know how that happened, I'd never come back to kayak and thrifty to rent a car.
8.8 Excellent2 Feb 2020
Pros: Friendly staff car was better then expectedCons: The building was a little sketchy from outside didn't look professional. the exit was a little annoying that we had to make another stop and provide paperwork before exit after we already did it inside.

Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful.
10.0 Excellent27 Sep 2020
Pros: They cancelled my reservation.
6.0 Good2 Sep 2020
Pros: Car was clean and the pickup and drop offs were very convenient.Cons: Rental car company did not honor the weekly rate originally agreed on and added an additional $18.79 to my total.
2.8 Mediocre5 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was rude at time of pick up, didn’t have the car I reserved and the solution was the cancel my reservation. My drop off time was outside their working hours and they told me I had to pay another day of rental to return the next day during their hours. Or I could pay to return it elsewhereCons: The car was dirty, food in between the seats. Gum stuck to the cushion, drinks were spilt and never cleaned up. Sand on the seats. With Covid-19 I would have expected it to be extra clean. No one even wiped the car down
10.0 Excellent28 Jul 2020
Pros: Easy pick up/drop off. Nice car, brand new. Friendly staff.
2.0 Mediocre26 Jun 2020
Pros: Nothing. No one was at counter, doors locked.Cons: If only someone was at the counter.
5.6 Okay22 Jun 2020
Cons: The location (Renaissance) isn't even open on Sunday although my booking said to return it there at 3 pm. They told me to drop it off at John Wayne airport instead. The car was dirty -- especially given how prevalent COVID is right now, I would have hoped the company would be even more careful about cleaning it. I had to lysol wipe the steering wheel and etc myself after receiving the car.
2.0 Mediocre1 Jun 2020
Pros: nothingCons: I was called a couple of hours before picking up time and told there was no vehicle for me!!!!!!!
10.0 Excellent25 Dec 2019
Pros: Excellent Car/SUV for our rental. Very comfortable for my 85 year old Father-In-Law. He is a retired Firefighter with Parkinsons Disease & Dementia. Having a comfortable ride is very important with his physical & mental condition. Thanks Hertz for making that happen. You made his Christmas even more Special!!
7.6 Good16 Dec 2019
Pros: They didn't have the class of car I had and wanted to charge me more for an upgraded cast. I refused and wanted what I was agreed to online. They made it look like they did me a favor after I shouldn't budge gave me a bigger car for the price I had reserved for. Other then that, everything was great.

Pros: I like that the attendant was polite. Price was good for the rental.Cons: Attendant does not answer the phone. I called at different times on different days, never answered the phone. The attendant left the location to wash a car for an 45 minutes. There is no key drop off at that location. There is no shuttle to the airport that is 1 mi. I will not book w/ budget again.

Terrible rental car services!Pros: Nothing.Cons: The people were rude. There were a lot of limitations and not very well communicated through online orders.

Kayak/ CarRentals.com/ U-Save All terrible customePros: NothingCons: I called U-save the day after I made the reservation to confirm it was unlimited miles. It wasn't. I wanted to cancel the reservation and I have contacted.Kayak, u-Save, and CarRentals.com to help cancel the reseravtion. The reservation STILL HAS NOT BEEN CANCELED. It's been over 2 weeks. No one can seem to help me. I was promised a 50% refund for the cancelation and I have received no refund whatsoever. I am still trying to chase down the cancellation and this was a horrible experience.
