I couldn’t get ahold of anybody from this company to try and extend my rental. I ended up cancelling and renting with Hertz who I will rent from a million times again. Easy to contact and made the process easy overall.Reviewed 7 Feb 2023

Payed for a car for a week at a set rate of $260 and then had over $350 of hidden fees and charges added on the day we arrived to pick up the car. Attendant told us we can save money by prepaying for gas as they had “a rate about 40 cents cheaper than the city”. Their rate was actually 50 cents more per gallon than the most expensive rate we saw the entire week. Car had countless dings and scrapes. Handle would fall off every time you opened the drivers door. Cars auto stop safety feature would malfunction and ding repeatedly every time you drove. Absolutely poor quality for over $500 for a week.Reviewed 4 Feb 2023

Car was fine. Counter rep did not give me the price I was quoted on website even though I had confirmation. Also tried to push me to pay another $150 as I was there an hour early for pick up. Never had anyone do that in all my years of travelReviewed 3 Feb 2023

Was told my USAA insurance would not work and insisted on my buying a $124 policy with 21%tax on that so instead of the $233 I found online the bill was $397 out the door!!! I was not a satisfied customer. The trunk was not working well so had to put things inside. Thought I chose a Toyota car and only thing that was close was a cheap Mitsubishi that had to be unlocked with a key from drivers door only. Trying to load my handicapped 93 yr old into in the rain was a pain!Reviewed 1 Feb 2023

Reps are deceitful. Up charged us without making it clear. Lied about a refundable deposit. Ended up paying three times as much. Very disappointed.Reviewed 27 Jan 2023

The ability to chat with employers for assistance is great. Better would have been if my rental was reliable from the beginning.Reviewed 22 Jan 2023

I was told at the counter my car had been given away because I was two hours after my reservation even though I called twice to tell them my plane was not coming in at the reserved time.I called them one week before and one day before and was assured it was okay, and still when I got there they told me I was late and the only thing they had was a car that was more expensive, they gave me a car with 68,000 miles, low tires, windshield wipers poor and back window tinting pulling off. I had to return it after two days. But the staff that facilitated the return and switched to a better vehicle could not have been nicer that was the best part of the experience unfortunately a shame it had to happen. I really resent the bait and switch at the counter when I got there even though I had given notice and a promise that there will be no trouble with the change of flight arrival time.Reviewed 21 Jan 2023

I got charged on Kayak. Waited in a huge line. Payless told me they didn’t have any small cars. Then charged me double for a tiny hatchback. Was BS.Reviewed 20 Jan 2023

The car was much smaller than advertised. It was dirty. Had almost 100000 miles. The battery died. Had to call AAA.Reviewed 19 Jan 2023
