Cons: They LIE to me. They said it would be special rate 88 USD and they charged me 101. It was big dissagrement between me and them when they initially asked for 101 USD for advertized plrice was way less but then they started adding hidden cost. Then their employee told at at service desk they will give us special rate of 88 USD (final price). I see on my bank statement behind my back they charged 101 USD LIERS!

NO, DON'T DO IT!!!
Pros: I did NOT like anything about Payless.
Cons: Payless is very disorganized, and missed managed. It resembled a junk car lot. Be prepared to wait in lines over one hour, and give yourself two hours to complete to return process and have them get you back to the airport. IT’S NOT WORTH THE AGGRAVATION.

Deceptive practices
Pros: The car was clean and nice. The customer service is okay even though it is extremely slow. Checking in the vehicle after rental was quick and painless.
Cons: They try to tack on insurance fees when you already have insurance. You have to question them multiple times about charges to get an honest price. My reservation said $85, and they tried to charge me ~$150. Only after questioning them multiple times I brought the charges back down to ~$100. After questioning them about the prices the computer “lost my contract” so we had to start over from the beginning. I spent over an hour here just trying to get a vehicle I reserved weeks in advance.

Cons: I made my reservation for 4 days and was given a total that included taxes and fees. The charges were: Car Rental: $ 88.00 Taxes & Fees $ 33.00 Total: $121.00 When I got to the counter at 2:00 am the girl at the counter stated that my estimated amount did not include all the taxes so I was charged as follows: Car Rental: $ 88.00 Taxes & Fees $ 95.06 Total: $183.06 This is a big difference and this is DECEPTIVE. It was 2:00 am and everyone was tired so we had no other choice but to just accept the price. When they brought us our car, the car was in bad shape with a lot of dings and scratches but the worst part is the front bumper was screwed in place with a drywall screw. You could see the screwhead on the side panel of the car. When I asked for another car because I was concerned about the car’s safety and reliability, they told me they didn’t have anything else to offer me. By now it’s 2:30 am and we were really tired and had no other choice but to accept the car I have used Dollar in the past and have never had an issue. I am extremely disappointed in the level of service, condition of the car and amount of inaccuracy in total charge of this Dollar Rental location

Many hidden charges - DO NOT rent from this compan
Pros: The second car provided did not brake-down
Cons: Rental company does not care about the car they are providing you. My first car was misaligned to the extent that when I did a turn, the car pulled me to the right. I came back to the dealer and they replaced it after some "tantrums" from their representative. They also spend more time making joke among themselves than caring about good customer service. My bill increased from $550.99 (online) to $886.15 (outdoor) after many hidden (not disclosed) charged when online purchase was done. Hidden charges -PER DAY- were: SLI $10.95; TRPP $1.95; TRANSP REC FEE 8.75%; City Tax 1%; Vehicle license fee $0.94; Energy Rec Fee $1; Facility Usage Fee $2.89; Maint Fee 0.5%; State tax 10.5%; AET $4.95.

Everything was good except the upsells
Cons: Of course car rental places will try to upsell you on extra insurance and the like, but this place straight up put it on my bill without me asking for it. They didn't even let me know it was going on my bill--I found out by looking at the invoice when I got home and connecting the dots. Overall, about $100-$120 I couldve saved on a weekly rental. Regarding the auto-expreso pass, I bought it per reviews online saying it's useful, but I never had need for it. I kept track of what I would've paid in tolls each day, and it was never more than $2.50. The expreso tag is $5/day, and I think the island's 10.5% tax might apply making it even pricier.

False advertisement: $100+ more!
Cons: False advertisement. The ad on Kayak stated taxes included. Dollar charged mo for the taxes separately. Would not budge. So I paid an extra $100+. What am I supposed to do when I am in another country, need a car at 10 PM, and have no other options? Would have gotten it for much less and more convenient pick up/drop off directly from other companies. Never Kayak again.

Outright stealing
Pros: Not much
Cons: It took almost an hour and a half to get the car. Once on the counter I was told my over all $107.00 price had jumped to $360.00 because since it was under $10 a day ($9.97) I had to pay full coverage for the car. This wasn't explained to me anywhere. If I would've known that I would've gone to a reputable company and rented and SUV for that price. A friend of mine did. That was very very disappointing and honestly I felt like I was being robbed in plain sight. I had no choice at that point and ended up having to do pay it. I was and still am extremely disappointed with this. Company name was: Allied rental

Tolls
Cons: They charge a flat fee of $6.95 per day for tolls (use it or not). The tollway system in PR doesn't allow for cash payment so ultimately you are forced to utilize the rental company's toll sticker. Instead if charging you for the tolls you utilize during the rental period, they charge $6.95/day use it or not. So if you rent a car for 14 days and you only use the tollway to and from the rental company (1st and last day) you would pay $6.95 X 14. Unreal.

Buyer beware
Pros: They were nice.
Cons: They tried to sneak in an up charge for insurance on me. My Spanish is ok and luckily I caught it and had them lower it. In the mean time they were out of the car I ordered and changed it. No problem. Allied ripped up the paperwork with the price I was quoted and agreed upon verbally and put together a new contract. Unfortunately, they sneaked in the insurance charge again on the paper work on the new car. I didn't notice the up charge this time since we agreed upon in person while I was renting the car. I'm guessing it was an honest mistake and perhaps their computer defaults to have insurance on their contracts. Since they had to redo the paperwork for the new car it must have defaulted an added the insurance. When I went to return the car they same person was not there. I asked for a manager to call and never heard from anyone. I've tried to call but have been getting the run around. I would have never rented that car with insurance. The price for the insurance was almost the price of the car! Buyer beware!

Overall great experience for car rental in San Jua
Pros: Alamo staff were very friendly at both pick-up and drop-off. The car we got was better than expected and we had no issues during our 1-week rental period.
Cons: The desk agent said we could upgrade to a car with power windows/locks for extra, which we declined, but the rentals we were offered to choose from in the lot all had power windows/locks - felt like an upsell that wasn't necessary...

Fast pick up/drop off
Pros: Arriving to San Juan at 1:30am was a tricky hour, but as soon as I arrived at the counter, someone was ready to help me. The service was fast and I was directed to go upstairs to choose a vehicle. Choose one and left. That simple. And drop off was just as simple. Pulled the car up, answered a few questions and walked right inside to the Terminals to go on my way. Would definitely book a vehicle with Alamo again!

The best car rental in San Juan
Pros: When you go to the car rental area at San Juan airport, it's a zoo. There are tired crabby travelers all over waiting in long lines. We had a reservation at enterprise and it took less than 5 minutes to get our car. When we wanted to drop off we were able to leave the car at a hotel in old San Juan where we stayed for the second part of our vacation (it's better not to have a car in old San Juan). Everyone we talked to was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Horrible pick up
Pros: Having a car.
Cons: When I went to pick up the car, the Hertz agent told me there were no cars available for pick up and that there would be no cars available anytime soon, despite the fact that i had made a booking over 2 months prior. I had to return to the office every 30 mins for 3 hours to check availability because I had planned my trip around having a car. It wasn’t until 3 pm that a car finally became available. Not only did this waste multiple hours off of the first day of my trip, it was also extremely stressful to think that I may have had to forgo a number of bookings and plans that required me to have a car, so overall not a pleasant experience at all.

Pros: gas mileage
Cons: I reserved a full size car (fusion or sonata) and ended up with chevy Malibu--very difficult for parents to get in and out of car. I had to wait over an hour to get my rental which I reserved well in advance. I then was directed to a parking lot where the hertz representative had no idea what or where my car was. Finally, they brought my car around and it was disgusting. The outside had so many dents and scraps I was afraid to drive it off the lot. Then the inside was equally as bad--smell, stained interior etc. This is the first time using Hertz and I will NOT use or advise any one to rent with Hertz. The previous three years I used enterprise at this location with MUCH better results.

Worst customer service with a 5 hour wait
Pros: The car was clean and brand new
Cons: We had a "reservation" at noon but were told when we arrived that it wouldn't be ready for about 30 minutes. We just got some lunch only to return and find 7 more people waiting for their noon "reservations" as well who were all apparently on the list before us. The employees told us they simply didn't have enough cars and didn't have any idea when they would be returning, as if that wasn't literally the only thing their job description entailed. They also continued to tell each new customer that it would be 30 minutes when it was clear they were lying. When, after over 3 hours I asked if they could even guarantee a car for us as our hotel was in a town 2 hours away, she said "I hope so." That was it. Finally, after over 5 hours, we got a car which was much smaller than the one we requested. At that point we just wanted anything to get us out of the 3x5 box that was their office, so we crammed in and drove away. They didn't offer any condolences or money back or anything for having wasted an entire day of so many peoples vacation. Worst experience I've ever had traveling as this seemed like the norm for them to let people think they're making a reservation and then having nothing for them. Absolutely terrible

Poor customer service
Cons: unfortunately, was unable to pick up the car. Spoke to the agent and told him that we may be a few minutes late (flight was landing at 4pm) he immediately stated that he was out the door by 4:30 (please note that we were only going to be probably 5 to 10 minutes late). Also, it was not in the immediate vicinity and that we had to take a taxi because they did not offer shuttle services which is something that we did not know about. Needless to say, we were very put off by his attitude especially when we had called ahead of time to let him know, guess he needed to get out on time. Booked another car with another car rental.......

Fine small car and price to match
Pros: We called for a ride from SJU to the off-site lot; caught a ride almost immediate; short trip to the lot; got paperwork done and we were on our way shortly. No problems, very smooth; same for our return. Will definitely use again.

Pick up and drop off was slow and hard
Pros: This ACE Car Rental is really a local affiliate, Charlie Car Rental. On the plus side, they honored the rate I reserved online, and the car they gave me worked fine.
Cons: It is difficult to get the shuttle from the airport to the car rental building- they come somewhat infrequently, and aren't listed on any of the signage. At check in, the process was very slow (> 1 hour), and they really tried to hard sell me on insurance, even though I knew my insurance coverage was adequate. The car they rented me had numerous dents and scapes. Overall, just not an enjoyable experience.

Horrible Experience
Pros: When i arrived to San Juan, I called them to
Cons: When i arrived to San Juan, I called them to get the shuttle to find out they had canceled my reservation, just because we were delayed. The car i had reserved was an economy, but at that point they wanted me to get an SUV at double the rate I got from Kayak. This whole ordeal was at 3 am, where we found our self stuck at the airport with no transportation. I ended up finding a car with another company which they were fantastic. Alamo safe my trip. I will not recommend ACE to anybody. Their service is the worse.

Rental was ok.
Pros: The price was very reasonable and the car was good for what we paid. Shuttle from the airport was easy to get and dropoff was also pretty simple.
Cons: I was told there were no people working at the toll booths so I would need the toll pass they had. Turns out there was a cash lane. I think that was a ripoff because we had to pay $10 to use their pass and the toll was just $1.50. Also, I felt like they were shoving their insurance down my throat.

Top tips for renting a car in San Juan

  • Because public transportation is limited and doesn’t go very far, you’ll want to rent a car during your stay in San Juan. A hire car will give you the freedom to explore places on the island, like Cueva Ventana or Arecibo Observatory. Additionally, you’ll be able to better explore much of the nature and picturesque scenery as you drive along the coastal highways. You can also drive through the rainforest – an unforgettable experience.
  • The San Juan Airport (or Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport) is just a few miles from the center of the city. Once you are off the plane, you’ll simply retrieve your hire car from the parking garage, or you can take a shuttle to the hire car desk. This airport provides many options for car hires including locally own companies like Charlie Car hire as well as nationally recognized companies such as Hertz or Enterprise.
  • The roads in San Juan can be a little bumpy and rough. Additionally, their narrowness can be somewhat intimidating to tourists. So, you’ll need to drive with caution even though you are sightseeing. Motorcycles are also very common in Puerto Rico, and motorcyclists tend to drive quite fast and will cut in front of you; so beware.
  • During rush hour the traffic can get a little heavy. The morning rush hour typically begins at around 8 a.m. and continues through 9:30 a.m. or so. In the evening, commuters will begin to return home at 4 p.m., which will cause some congestion on the road until around 6 p.m.
  • Book your rental car in San Juan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
