Not the right location
Pros: The car
Cons: Had booked the vehicle under the assumption that it was at the airport and there happens to be 2 enterprise locations equidistant from YVR. Long story short it took quite awhile to get to the car. It was also very hard to get a taxi from the location after the drop off.

very good experience
Pros: Free upgrade; 5% discount when I asked if they gave a discount for AA membership (they don't, but they applied this discount without me asking for it); very clear about what constituted 'damage' when I checked the car with them at the beginning of the rental, ie. scatches over a cerrtain length, etc.
Cons: Nothing negative to mention.

Enterprise is awesome; Kayak gave no discount
Pros: Enterprise staff were very friendly and helpful, understanding and accommodating. Kayak is a much better search tool than the Enterprise site. This site is not a scam, so....yey?
Cons: Kayak prices are not discounted in any way. 10% would make me come back.

Pros: I didn't have a credit card and only debit card they cancelled my booking. I feel it's highly unfair. There are ppl in this world who manage without a credit card and car rental companies should cater to all. I then got it from another dealer who accepted cash and debit cards.

Good driving in Palau
Pros: Car was newer with good space for 4 adults. It was a little cramped with luggage, but not a problem for two short trips. Everything on the car worked well. Appreciated having agents at the airport for very late night/early morning arrival and departure.
Cons: Island's internet connection was so poor, I have yet to receive a copy of the contract. I took a photo for billing records and will contact Hertz when we get home.

7 Nov 2016
Pros: Car was clean and new.
Cons: I asked the Hertz agent specifically when I needed to return the car to ensure that I don't get charged an extra day. She informed me it was 3pm and even noted it on the account. When I went to return the car, I was there before 3pm, but was still charged an extra day. Even though the agent at the office saw that the 3pm was noted on my account, he said he was unable to change it and I had a train to catch and no time to argue. I ended up paying $116 instead of the original $65 quoted though Kayak.

Worst travel experience
Pros: Nothing I will never pre-book a rental again
Cons: My flight was delayed and the rental counter was closed after we got in. Because we were traveling to whistler 2 hours away, we had no way of getting there and had to sleep on the ground until the rental counter opened the next morning (even though we had already paid for an expensive hotel room. This was a nightmare

Vehicle was not ready
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Vehicle was not ready, had broken down apparently, was an inconvenience. Took another car, was not suitable, went back and was given the replacement that was late, made me late, driving up dangerous mountain roads at night, but was the safer car. All fine in the end...

some good pros, but some bad cons too.......
Pros: good car, efficient service
Cons: we messed up our return schedule (missed the ferry) so we: - returned the car 2h late and to the airport instead in the city -> resulted in 1 day additional rent which we considered as ok - didn't have the time to fill up the gas otherwise we would have missed the plane -> $227 were charged for fuel service which is 3-4 times the value of the fuel. We consider this simply a rip off, twice the amount would have been acceptable. We might choose another company next time

9 Jun 2016
Cons: I believe the price for one way rentals is way too high. Also, why charge the same high rate for all days. The cost of rental per day should be the same for return to the same location and a one time drop off fee for a different pick up/drop off. Current practice discourages me from staying more days. Also, I tend to drive my own car if I am interested in one way car rentals. So for me it reduces my car rentals from Avis.

17 Jul 2016
Cons: The office was understaffed and we waited almost an hour to get our hundai sonata.. When we finally got it, the windshield wipers had been left on due to a recent wash, and the driver side on did not work. Luckily we discovered this before we pulled away. We were promptly given an different vehicle (supposedly an upgrade to a Santa Fe). It did not have all the same features as the sonata, and both of us found it to be very uncomfortable to sit in regardless of trying all available seat adjustments. We both had backaches for 10 days. Being a larger vehicle, it also used more gas than the originally promised car.

Hidden / Surprise Fees
Pros: Car and service were ok overall
Cons: A surprise $50 fee for dropping off at the airport vs. Downtown. This was not disclosed at time of rental and tripled the cost of my rental. It feels like bait and switch. Other websites do disclose all fees.

Great location for pickup in the city
Pros: Great location, good prices. Employees were very helpful and kind.
Cons: Chevy Cruz is not a great car to drive, I should have asked for something different. I paid for the Garmin GPS and it was very slow to bring up searches. It was helpful while driving on the road but clunky and not very intuitive on searches...it took us to a market when we searched for fuel.

Nice car, easy pick up, cost was a surprise
Pros: Everything about this went smoothly except for the final cost.
Cons: That my bill was proposed to be $49 per day, and it was $63 in the end because of additional costs. That's a big difference. It would be nice to know about all the add-on fees ahead of time.

Better than expected
Pros: Reviews read on other sites were very critical. I went ahead and booked anyway and it was super easy. Clean car, friendly staff, and super easy. Would do again!
Cons: There's a charge (17%) if you landed at the airport within 24 hrs. I should've said it was more than 24 hrs because they didn't check anyway.

Only one agent
Pros: The car was is good condition, clean and performed well.
Cons: There was only one agent on duty at 10:00 AM on Friday morning when a two cruise ships docked. It took over an hour for her to process all the people wanting to rent cars. She was definitely overworked, and doing the best she could, but the line was very long and the hour wait was not acceptable.

Never again
Cons: Booked a vehicle to pick up AT airport, turns out it was not at the airport but 20 minute train ride into downtown Vancouver. I booked to pick up the vehicle at 3 pm, however the downtown location closed at 3 pm and left us with a dark desk and no way to find a vehicle. When I booked it, the online page should have warned me that that particular office closed at 3 pm. No calls were made to us to find out if we were on our way or what had happened. Luckily a gentleman at the convention center onsite helped us find the last vehicle for rent in the area and we paid more and got a tiny car, but it was a vehicle and we did not have to stay the night in Vancouver. Being such a large company, I would think the website would have warned me that our pick up time and the closing time were the same and I would have researched further. Won't ever book with Alamo again.

Try to hand over compact after booking full size
Cons: Booked a full size. They never told me they don't have one. When I go to parking lot, they hand me over a compact (still without telling me). When I ask for full size, the day we will "UPGRADE" you to minivan. Sorry, that's not an upgrade and you could have at least told me that you don't have car I won't.

Pros: The guys tried to be helpful but...
Cons: The first Jeep Cherokee's 4WD service light was on, the second Jeep Patriot was old, ratty and stunk of cigarette smoke, and the last option with AWD was a Chevrolet thing. We left and went to Hertz and got a brand new clean Jeep Wrangler instead.

Dishonest experience with Thrifty car rental
Cons: I booked a rate on your site for a total car rental period with all fees for just under $40. When I returned my car to Thrifty the total was $199. 52 and I filled the car full of gas. They said that they added a $35 dollar per day insurance that I did not sign up for and they would not remove this charge. I am waiting for a phone call from you to discuss a refund. 949-910-0033
