Staff----very good and quick. Simplicity in renting, especially since I had not placed a reservation.Drop off a bit complicated at the Sanford airport. Went in circles until I figured out what to do.

We got a warning to change oil. We called and no one seemed to care. It was quite aggravating and time consuming.

I rented a medium size car and Alamo gave me a compact, much smaller than I paid for. On top of that the attendant insisted in me taking road assistance which cost me another $100. It was a rip off. You can tell they are mad cause people refuse their insurance which is $40 per day and the other add one they desperately want us to accept so the rental fee doubles in price.

Car was clean and ready to go pretty quickly.The USB port didn't work!!! So I couldn't use it to charge and run my iPhone for directions. This could have been disastrous if I had a longer trip to get to my GPS destination.

The staff was very friendly,The inside of the car smelled like smoke, car wasn’t very clean, There was too long of a wait to obtain car on the day of rental. When taking car back, too much info needed, they should have most of the info written down on envelope for you. Was told a receipt would be emailed to me, but didn’t receive one and had to call to get the final receipt.

Staff was friendly at the Daytona Beach pick up location and the roadside assistance person over the phone. The staff when arriving at Orlando airport were very unorganized and ignored us completely.The vehicle's tire exploded on the expressway. Nothing was hit and the tire exploded with the tread falling off the hubcap. It was clearly a tire that needed to have been changed prior to our use of the vehicle. When I called roadside assistance, they told me that I needed to pay $70 to fix the flat

I just always forget that they want our milage turned in when we turn in the car. So it means a trip back to the car which I did not have any time to do this time. Not sure what the solution is but a reminder sticker on the dash would help. The rental agent at Budget/Avis that I have worked with at Daytona has always been great!!

getting the car online was easy. I also had to modify my reservation and was able to easily do so with one phone call which was great. Drop off was also quick and easy.Pick up was a little rough. There was only 1 person working the counter and there were numerous people waiting to get cars. I was "third" in line but still had a 25 minute wait.

I rented 2 different vehicles within a week from Dollar at Daytona Beach. The first time, I waited for an hour to pickup my vehicle. The CSR was friendly and helpful. When I dropped off my vehicle, the IN milage was not accurately recorded by the CSR. The second time I picked up, I waited over 2 hours; the rental in/out time was not updated; the fuel qty was incorrect, the manager the helped was dismissive of my concerns and the other customers concerns (when we mentioned the wait, she said she has been there for 4 hours herself in a very mocking way. I contacted dollar via phone about the fuel issue. When I returned the vehicle, I notated the fuel issue but I was still charged for the fuel usage and the IN fuel qty was incorrectly recorded. This place sucks. I will literally never ever use dollar again.

Your computer systems don’t line up and because of that we had the old bait and switch pulled on us with a $60 up charge for the only car available. If kayak doesn’t have access to the rental car’s inventory then the two businesses shouldn’t be working together.

8.0 Excellent17 Jan 2022
Part of our trip was cancelled due to Covid. Priceline was absolutely no help in being able to change our rental arrangement. Fortunately, we went to Dollar for all changes, something Priceline did not offer as a suggestion. In the future, better to reserve directly through the rental company, not through third party. Be cautious.

First time w dollar. No one told us about a $100 "cleaning fee" . Never got that from hertz, alamo, national or enterprise or any other rental service. I would have had it cleaned. Also, why was I charged airport taxes when I did not fly in or out. Now I am on hold for 18 minutes waiting to address these unexpected charges.Sneaky, they hit me with several unexpected charges after the return which I have never had an issue with when renting from any other company. $100 cleaning fee? Needed some vacuuming otherwise the vehicle was the same returned as picked up. You may spend hours on the phone before any answer when you call to ask why a non flyer was charged airport taxes. Take the time at the counter to get a final cost BUYER BEWARE!

Carrentals.com hacked into this transaction, gave me a reservation to the wrong airport, did not make a reservation with Dollar car rental and refused to refund my money. I'm forced to go through my bank to FORCE A REFUND. I WILL NEVER USE KAYAK again

Nothing, had to cancelGot to the rental place, their card chip reader wasn't working so we had to swipe. My husband's mag strip was worn so it wasn't working. The woman at the counter informed us she couldn't type the card manually. As we share the same bank account, we asked to use my card and were unable to due to it being in his name. We were then advised to call and straighten it out with priceline. So we tried numerous times to call price line only to get an auto recording telling us about our rental details, no option for a rep. We decided to use the chat feature to get help. First person seemed like she did not want to help, gave multiple bits of incorrect info, and then lied and said she couldn't contact the rental company to confirm our refund for up to 10 business days because they're closed. We were literally standing in the office she claimed wasn't opened. The next rep said we need to call their number, and gave us the recorded line again. The last rep FINALLY was able to get us a refund but either way we were left without a rental vehicle and had to find another method of transportation because the company also advised they need a minimum of 24 hours notice to rent a car. It was the absolute worst experience I've ever had. I will never use a third party site again, this was beyond words.

Staff at pickup was awesome!Charged us for an extra hour when the car keys were returned to the drop box by the designated time, that added roughly $70 to the bill. Emailed and called to have the problem fixed and stil no response. Also have been charged a total of three separate times for tolls when the first charged covered the total cost. Nobody knows why that is the case and we have received no help fixing that problem either. Paid extra for a mini cooper of Fiat and instead got a ford fiesta. Will never rent from this company again.

Top tips for renting a car at Daytona Beach Airport

  • Reserving a car rental at Daytona Beach Airport is a great option for having a comfortable and convenient mode of transportation for moving throughout the city. While there are some public transportation options, such as the local bus, driving is one of the quickest ways to get where you need to go. By having your own Daytona Beach Airport car rental, you will also be able to easily transport cargo, such as suitcases or beach equipment.
  • There are a few different models that you can choose from for your car rental at Daytona Beach Airport, depending on what your specific preferences are. Those that are planning on primarily staying in the city center can always choose to rent a compact vehicle, as a smaller car can be handy for parking in tight spaces or navigating congested roads. If you want to soak up some Floridian sunshine, you can opt for a convertible as well.
  • Returning a car rental at Daytona Beach Airport is a simple task, as all you must do is bring your vehicle directly back to the car rental return area, near where you initially picked it up. Each company that has a branch at the airport has a specific area where it stores its fleet, so take note of this location when you first grab your car. As you approach the airport, there will be signs that will help you to find the drop-off area.
  • As it is a major business hub and a popular destination amongst visitors, Daytona Beach can be a busy area. Because of this, its roads often have traffic, especially during rush hour, which normally takes place from 7 to 9 am and 5 to 7 pm each day. To prevent yourself from getting stuck in a traffic jam, avoid picking up and returning your car rental during these periods.
  • Book your rental car at Daytona Beach Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
