They initially claimed that we dropped the car off two full days after we actually did. I was able to get the charges removed, but it was quite a hassle of calling phone numbers and eventually having to drive down to my nearest Dollar location.Reviewed 13 Apr 2024

Limited vehicles available. Line was 50 people long with two counter associates. Ended up leaving and getting another vehicle from Avis.Reviewed 29 Mar 2024

My vehicle was not there. Argued with an attendant for an hour about a vacant spot my vehicle was SUPPOSED to be at. Not once in 2 and a half hours did they mention you need a credit card and a $500 deposit till after I signed the agreement. Counter staff rude AF.Reviewed 13 Mar 2024

I called to inform them that my 11:00 p.m. arrival had been delayed for ten minutes and I expected that I would be to the counter by 11:20 p.m. The agent responded that I had not provided my flight number, so they would close at 11:00 p.m. So, I paid for a day's rental I did not receive and was left without transportation. Also, my reservation did not inquire as to my flight number, so very disappointing. If I had not paid in advance through Kayak, I would have cancelled the reservation. Therefore, I am unlikely to use Kayak in the future.Reviewed 11 Jan 2024

I really liked the vehicle and drive. Only let down I stopped at a restaurant in McAllen to eat and a tiny pebble hit the window and cracked the glass for which we had 2 insurances thankfully. I know this is outside the scope of this review however it was a negative conclusion to a wonderful journey.Reviewed 17 Jun 2021

Pros:SUV was REALLY nice! Drop off was perfect! The employee was super friendly and assisted me in making sure all of my belongings were out.Cons:The employee when I picked up at San Antonio International the agent tried to sell me an “upgrade” from a premium SUV to a minivan. Luckily I checked before I left and the “upgrade” would not have been as nice. The employees up top allowed me to switch back the SUV and the rest of the rental was perfect!Reviewed 31 May 2021

Pros:drop off was greatCons:very long line and wait at sales counter where I was told I would have my choice of cars. When I got to garage there where no cars. another long wait then my car finally arrives. I have no choice but to take some japanese scrap metal Nisson. I head to the exit and find another long line and wait. After getting my luggage it took me 2 hours to get a rental car I had reserved weeks in advance and leave the airport. My worst rental car experience in 40 years of travelReviewed 3 Apr 2021

Cons:Just watch for the up charge, I said I would fill up on my way to drop off and my receipt said $36 prepay...Reviewed 27 Jan 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:NothingCons:I would have gotten a car. Nobody was there to provide my rental. It screwed up my car rental for the week, due to holidays, no cars being readily available, and holiday closures. I called Dollar and Priceline with no resolve, except a refund, which is expected if you don't get the product you paid for.Reviewed 1 Jan 2021
