Overbooked by over 20 cars. Then called me at 10pm the night before to let me know I was 6 In line

Everything was excellent, from booking the car online to the locations and staff, the vehicle too.Can’t think of anything.

Nothing. Time spent getting my vehicle, and returning my vehicle, was much less than any other rental car company. I will be choosing Alamo for my rental car needs.

Convenient, affordable, reliable ski trip SUVAble to reserve the all-wheel drive, large-size SUV the day before I needed it and at a very good rate on kayak.com, far less than I expect to pay (40% less than several direct car rental websites). Vehicle was in excellent condition with only 8,000 miles on it. Ran beautifully from Monterey to Tahoe and back through some pretty rough storm conditions. Easy pick-up and return at the Monterey Regional Airport.There was nothing I didn't like about the rental car or the company, or the process of getting it online through kayak.com.

Flat tire and no helpThe car was okCar got a nail in the tire. When I called Alamo, they said they would charge us $65 to change the tire for the spare. Ok, fine. But they didn't have any replacement cars for us. So they wanted us to drive to a firestone, buy a new tire, and then hope to get reimbursed for it. We were on a work trip and a schedule. It was completely ridiculous and unhelpful. I couldn't believe that Alamo and Enterprise didn't have a single car to use for one day! Ended up getting the spare on ourselves. Driving it very slowly to our drop off place 40 min away and just leaving,

No, I tried to call their office various times the day before, and they put me on hold for a long time twice, then just hung up the 3rd try. After that it just went to corporate.The young man I encountered upon arrival was very brusque. Whipped thru the paperwork, and when I asked to confirm the quoted price, he said a price of $40 more. I asked why and he said it was because I was picking it up early (less than an hour difference, the flight was a bit early). He re-did it all to reflect the price I was quoted. Never had anything like that happen before.

Nothing! Didn’t even rent the vehicle!No where in the rental agreement did it say there would be a rental car deposit?!! Therefore I was not prepared with a credit card that could hold that amount of money!! Very disappointed!!

Rental was for 08:00 am, but the car was not ready until 09:00. Was told they do not have the staff and he could not tell me when the car would be ready. Once the car was delivered, still had trash in the back from prior rental.

The staff was great, the service was excellent - easy pick up and drop-off (and the woman staffing the desk remembered me three days later!). I found the entire experience to be easy and understandable (where to go, what to do, etc.) from beginning to end.The car wasn't all that great. It was safe, it was functional, and it was most definitely clean. However, I would have preferred something a little more comfortable and modern, even at my small-car/low-level need.

I liked that the airport is so small and there were no crowds at the rental kiosk. Check out was fast and the car lot is right next door to the terminal making for a short walk to the car. Great!

Unfortunately I reserved an SUV and upon arrival to the check-in desk I was told they had only sedans. It was lucky that another company had a larger car for me, but I was surprised and not thrilled that I made a reservation for a car they did not have to rent.
