I accidentally kept the keys in my pocket after I returned the car and found them before I went through security. The shuttle driver took them for me no problem. The entire rental experience was completely hassle-free.

The sales agent was honest and helpful even though she had no car to rent. She explained to the best of her knowledge.There was NO car to pick up even though numerous emails assured us our car would be ready for pick up. We were stuck with NO transportation. Enterprise was able to help us. Will NOT use Budget again.

There is a lot of latitude within the definition of a full size car. The Kia Optima I was assigned drove very well, but the seats were not comfortable at all.

The staff during pick up was good.They didn't have the type of car I reserved, so I ended up with something different. The staff during drop off took a long time with a customer in front of me and never acknowledged me to say he would be right with me.

The car battery died, I called 24 hour road side assitence, I was told no one was available to help me. I spoke to Nina at a call center in Fla. who promised to call back once a jump start truck was available, she never did. I will never use Budget again.

Wrong car is only one leftCar was clean in good shape and ready to goI had reserved a full size car when I got there I was told I was getting a free upgrade to a Jeep only problem is I was going to travel 5 hours on the interstate. When I asked about turning down the upgrade she said it's the only car we have left. But when I went out to get the Jeep the parking spots were full.

When I got there I was told that they did not have a vehicle available and they did not offer any additional options for me to get a vehicle. I was forced to go to another location to rent a vehicle. Enterprise has horrible service.

The car I rented (Hyundai Sonata) performed beyond expectations; I just wish the car was cleaner when I picked it up (exterior and a bit on the interior). Overall an amazing experience.

Unfortunately, the first vehicle we were offered had a third row that did not operate correctly as far as going up and down and was very badly stained. They offered him a second vehicle which he took a quick look at and then headed to his meeting. When he got home we realized that the back seats were literally covered in dog hair and the vehicle had not been wiped down at all. (Disturbing considering we just came out of a pandemic.) We both have pet allergies, and so I had to take well over an hour to clean the vehicle well enough to be able to use it because the location was closed and we were leaving early the next morning for a daughter’s Navy boot camp graduation. After the vehicle was cleaned up, it turned out to be a great option. It was just a huge inconvenience considering the schedule we were on. We will never rent from Hertz again!

Never got my rental....Online was easy to use and book. This was the ONLY positive part of the experience.Counter clerk was rude. once we got there to wrap my car he informed us that I had to have a credit card that my cash was no good. He was very rude and really need some customer service skills in dealing with people. It needs to state when you order your car that they do not except debit cards or cash. Not everyone has a credit card. There is a family behind us that also only had a debit card and cash.

The Car was not available and I lost a lot of money and time due to the car not being there as arranged. It messed up all my travel plans and I had to scramble to make my flights and find a hotel as I moved out of my apartment that day. Terrible terrible terrible,,There should be a law against not having the car there. Staff said a reservation does not mean you will get the car. Obviously, they sold my car to a higher bidder

Small airport and no one there except me and I was there at 7:45 am. Alamo did not open until 8. Other car rentals checked in customers before 8 while my agent took a smoke break. No a deal breaker but certainly not promoting customer service

Alamo at New BernThe Ford Edge was a comfortable car.Alamo insurance seems a scan. We took a plan when we booked but learned at the desk that it was no better than our credit card coverage. So the agent tried to sell us a more expensive plan available only at the time of rental.

I was running a couple hours late to pick up my rental car, and when I got there they didn't have the small car I had reserved for the weekend. However, the woman at the counter worked with me to find a car that I wanted, and I only had to wait a short time for them to clean the car for me and I was on my way! Alamo was running a great deal and the price could not have been better. The car was clean and in good working condition. Good customer service. Thanks Alamo!

Really unhelpful manager.Non-managerial staff at the location was really helpful and friendly. Drop off was quick and easy.Accused of damaging the car by the drop-off location when the pickup location clearly had failed to document pre-existing damage. Now embroiled in a battle with an overly self-important manager in North Carolina who thinks dragging an innocent customer into an inter-office battle is acceptable when it means enforcing the rules of the business.

Chevy MalibuI loved how comfortable the seats were and how quickly the vehicle heated up. I loved the fact the put exactly what speed you were going right in the middle of the dashboard, because you could be going 70, and only feel like you were going 50 or 55. As for Alamo themselves, the reservation went smooth, the lady at the front desk was awesome, and the process went well overall. So, I would definitely rent another vehicle from them again, just not a Malibu.We found that the touchscreen for the radio didn't work correctly. And we tried turning the column down and it wouldn't work, until about 10 minutes down the road it decided to work and turned itself off and then back on. Also didn't like the way the vehicle would shutdown when you came to a stop at a red light or stop sign. This is a grandma/grandpa car. It has no get up. So expect to have to push the pedal all the way down in order to get up a hill or to pass someone on the highway. I would not rent this car again or buy it ever.

The Jetta I rented had not been washed or vacuumed when I picked it up at EWN, I was told by the agent that this was the only car they had available at that time. It also had an expired license plate. I didn't realize this until I was stopped by a policeman in Arkansas. I showed him the registration that also indicated that the plate expired in February, (NC tag # HHD-7966). The policeman conducted an unauthorized and unlawful search on the vehicle and confiscated my friend's bottle of 12 year old whiskey. I have registered a formal complaint with the department but am not expecting much from them. I was stopped again for this on my return trip in Nashville, TN but was not detained, only delayed. Also, the car didn't have a working charge port so our phones died and we could not charge them until we arrived in Arkansas. The cruise control on the car worked mostly ok on level ground but failed in the mountains. It would maintain speed going uphill but not down. I had to apply brakes every time I went down hill or the car would speed up out of control. Also the cruise control would shut down unexpectedly at random intervals. The car itself would also shut down while idling in park. Whenever I would use a drive-thru dining or mobile banking ATM the car would shut off after a few minutes and had to be restarted. If left in drive it would keep running. When I returned the car to EWN the agent made note of my complaints and offered to discount the fee by $200. This was helpful but I assure you that it does not inspire the sort of confidence that would result in me ever trusting Avis enough to rent another vehicle from them.

Good value on the car, which I only needed for one short one-way driveThe drop-off. I showed the employee my FULL fuel tank and he said "Don't worry about it, the car is linked so the system will know." He also didn't provide me with a receipt at that time. When I received the receipt by email 20 minutes later while sitting at the gate, it said the tank was only 7/8 full and I was being charged an extra $19+! Avis customer service says they will reverse the charge after I told them the name and number of the gas station and the dollar amount paid for gas, three minutes before I turned in the vehicle; but I haven't seen the charge reversed yet. Who has time for this?

I like big cars, because I am a big person. The last time I rented, it was a Chevy Malibu, as full size. Well, I had a time getting in and out of that thing. So from now on I want to know for sure that it is a big vehicle. Thanks for the good service, and fine automobileOne of the rear seats was unmanageable, for what reason I do not know. The saving grace was that the van was large enough that it didn't matter. We had plenty of room for all of our luggage. My wife takes enough luggage for a week to be gone for two days. Oh well, I had a plenty myself. Anyway, we were exceedingly pleased with the Chrysler Town and Country......RAH
