Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Very friendly customer service. Easy in and easy out. Car was clean.

Cons:

Pick up at the airport was slow compared to the other rental car shuttle services.

5.2 Okay

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was fine, when I actually got to the rental place was fairly quick. But was completely ruined by what could have gone better

Cons:

The airport shuttle and ability to communicate with someone once the flight landed. Waited for 35 minutes only to watch every other shuttle bus come and go 3 times. When you call the number there is no way to reach any one at the location because it goes to a central booking even though it’s a local number.

5.2 Okay

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The car interior seemed very clean.

Cons:

My final bill was twice the amount I was quoted when booking via Kayak. I asked questions about this with the in-person Budget employee at the counter when picking up my vehicle, and I didn’t receive any acceptable justification. I was told the insurance I purchased on Kayak was invalid, and that I was required to purchase the insurance Budget offered. I was offered a more fuel efficient vehicle, different from the one I’d booked in advance. I asked if there was a price difference and was told no. Turns out, there was a price difference, and the new insurance I was “required” to have was listed as optional on the rental agreement receipt that was printed out and given to me at the counter. This cost me an additional $150. Perhaps this was all due to Budget’s deceptive business practices and dishonest employees and nothing bad by Kayak, but what could have been better was more transparency of information that might have not cost me an extra couple hundred dollars.

4.8 Okay

Sep 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Fairly prompt shuttle pick-up.

Cons:

We were told there would be a 10 minute wait “for the car to be serviced”. Waited 15 minutes and the car was filthy inside and hadn’t been washed outside. It did have gas - I guess that was the”service”.

Feb 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Employee at the exit was excellent. He helped me remove the lights on the dash, adjust my seat, & set my bluetooth.

Cons:

Where to start? I picked up the car late in the rain and there was so much water around the vehicle that I couldn't check it out for dents. Emergency road service that I needed the next day was non-existent, even after an hour on hold. This crucial problem with key was never resolved. In a separate issue, tire pressure was low after a few days.

The pick up experience was horrible. Employees at the counter were non professional and rude. Car wasn’t clean.

4.0 Okay

May 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

The service is so slow that they only have one person working at a counter when there are three rental agencies. The line was very long, and they packed all of us in together, so they didn't care about social distancing or anything. It took forever to give us a car which Ford Focus and Chevy spark are not similar

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

Had to reschedule my flight but Thrifty wouldn't let me reschedule the car rental. I knew it was non-refundable but I didn't want a refund, I just wanted to push it back a few weeks. Total waste of $150, I'll never use Thrifty again.

Pros:

Cons:

Pros:

The car was clean and the pick up and drop off process easy

Cons:

I don’t understand why Enterprise won’t let you use a debit card unless you have a booked flight. How does it make sense that a credit card is better than a debit card? I did not have a credit card on me and had to book a flight on the spot just to be able to get my rental

Pros:

Willingness to help me

Cons:

When I arrived, they informed me that they didn't have any cars. I said I made a reservation and asked why no one called me to tell me that. After explaining that I needed the one way rental to make a flight in Baltimore, they allowed me to take a car that was in waiting to get an oil change. I ended up with an SUV when my reservation was for an economy so there was a sliver lining. Just a lot of unnecessary stress during pickup. I understand them getting cars was out of their control but I would have appreciated a courtesy call that morning so I could have made other arrangements.
