10.0 ExcellentNov 12 2020
Pros: Great service, fast easy courteous. employees seemed happy. rental car employees not usually that way.
10.0 ExcellentOct 23 2020
Pros: The staff were great. They showed us how to work some of the new features on the car. The car was in excellent condition; it was brand new!Cons: Nothing
9.6 ExcellentOct 13 2020
Pros: Alamo was great. But it was my second choice, after my first choice -- some no name rental agency called Mex, selected initially via Kayak, which routed me through Rentcars.com -- was a friggin disaster. I landed at 6 pm, the time of my reservation, only to discover that the rental office was already closed. There was no one to help me, no number to call, no customer service from anyone in that chain, including Kayak. It was a friday evening at 6. I tried 4 other rental agencies; they were either out of cars or were asking insane amounts of $$ for them. I had to get a ride from the airport, and come back the next morning to rent from Alamo. (Which was great.)Cons: Alamo was great. Avoid Mex Rent a Car and Rentcars.com at all costs. No one picks up the phone at Mex and you can't leave a voicemail. The number for Rentcars doesn't work, and the email responses are all in Portuguese. I'm not kidding. Why Kayak continues to use these vendors is a mystery to me. Makes me reconsider my choice in travel apps.
7.6 GoodOct 4 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful in securing a gas discount for me when the car I reserved wasn’t available.Cons: Don’t oversell cars! If I book a pickup, giving me a dodge caravan minivan because you oversold pickup trucks isn’t providing excellent service.
5.6 OkaySep 21 2020
Pros: Drop off was greatCons: Have the selected class or better available. I don’t consider an infinity to be the same class as an Escalade
10.0 ExcellentSep 19 2020
Pros: Loves the car ... wish I could of kept itCons: nothing honestly
10.0 ExcellentSep 2 2020
Pros: The Enterprise staff was very helpful since there was no one in the Alamo booth at that hour to pick up the vehicle. I was upgraded to Premium Premium due to no Suburban available to pick up. I enjoyed driving the Cadillac Esclade.Cons: Nothing.
6.4 GoodSep 1 2020
Cons: The car battery kept dying so we kept having to get it jumped by folks driving by. This was a massive inconvenience
8.4 ExcellentAug 15 2020
Pros: Easy in and out serviceCons: roomer comfort in the vehicle
10.0 ExcellentAug 13 2020
Cons: The wait time to complete the checkout is a bit long. We waited for 4 people in front of us, about 30 minutes.

2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2021
Pros: reserved a large size truck twice. both times they had non availableCons: dont rent out what you dont have to rent
10.0 ExcellentJan 30 2021
Pros: Great service as always.Cons: Everything was great.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2021
Pros: Not much, the manager in San Marcos, CA Las Posas branch is a disgrace. She has the customer service skills of a Bad Lawyer. After spending vlose to $1,000 in last 30 days she decided she didn’t like me because I reminded her of her ex husband who left her for another man.Cons: Professional behavior, friendly, let’s make customer happy attitude.

10.0 ExcellentNov 14 2020
Pros: Everything went great from staff to the car it was a great experienceCons: Nothing could have made it better.
8.4 ExcellentOct 1 2020
Pros: Staff was super friendly at both the pick up and the drop off. However, I don't appreciate the fast talking sales person trying to upsell is a shady manner. Suddenly my one way rental jumped from $70 to $130 but luckily the customer service guy on the phone and the staff at the drop off location were super helpful, understanding and accommodating.Cons: Explain all the charges clearly and slowly and include actual pricing info instead of trying to just get the most out of every customer. People are on strict budgets these days and lack of transparency and not having the customers best interest in mind will cause you to lose business.
2.0 MediocreSep 21 2020
Cons: Called the car company several times after landing at San Diego Airport to request customer pick up and no answered the phone. My fiancé and I spent several hours waiting. The worst experience I’ve ever had with a car rental company and with Kayak.
9.6 ExcellentSep 19 2020
Pros: Car was what we needed and had great safety features.Cons: Pick up was slow. You had to wait outside and hope someone in the office would see you. Maybe adding a door bell/buzzer would help speed up the process.

Pros: Everything was pretty much greatCons: The drop off in San Francisco was a bit confusing, as we had to drop off at Herz which was not clear from the beginning.
2.0 MediocreAug 3 2020
Pros: It was very easy to book, I read that there would be a free-cancellation but I missed my appointment due to having to company my younger sister to the ER. I called the rental location & told them I wasn’t gonna make it at all & they Cancelled the reservation & I asked if I’d be refunded the $30. They said they didn’t charge me but on my bank statement I was charged

Pros: Dollar not available at pick up so Hertz did it.Cons: Just drop off car with key in it at San Diego Airport
2.0 MediocreNov 30 2020
Pros: The lady that assisted us us at check in seemed to be out out to answer any questions we had. . She said that the insurance we purchased online did not cover the vehicle through them. We ended up paying an additional $275 dollars!!!!! I WILL NEVER RENT THROUGH KAYAK OR FROM DOLLAR RENT A CAR AGAIN.
10.0 ExcellentNov 17 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful, process was very quick. Price was good.
8.8 ExcellentNov 8 2020
Pros: Yes
6.4 GoodOct 23 2020
Pros: The drop off was inefficient. Dollar returns were being ahndled by Hertz. I didn't have anybody come up to me and the car and try to help me check out upon my arrival. Onstead, 25 minutes after my return, they checked out the car while there were very few cars in the return lot. This resulted in assessment of an unfair extra hour of rental to me, which they asessed to me and was entirely THEIR fault.Cons: Check out up9n return is inefficient with nobody to really work on my return immediately. Delays in return process are not acceptable and result in deceptive charges to customers.
10.0 ExcellentOct 19 2020
Pros: Tee was super helpful when we rented at the Hertz counter.
4.4 OkaySep 28 2020
Pros: Staff was niceCons: Super long lines and understaffed team. Reserved a BMW or similar, got a compact Nissan SUV. Kind of a joke really
6.0 GoodSep 24 2020
Pros: The manager resolved the problem by finding a substitute car, and providing a discount.Cons: The car smelled like cigarette smoke. When I went back to the counter to reject the car, the homosexual clerk, as a typical immoral anarchist, was EXTREMELY rude, argumentative, and unhelpful. I had to make a pest of myself before he fetched the manager. The manager was very professional and provided a substitute car, and a discount.
7.6 GoodSep 23 2020
Pros: The car drove nicely. I liked being able to drop it off at a place other than where I picked it up.Cons: Customer service at SAN was bad. After waiting in a long line to complete the paperwork I had to wait in another to get out of the lot. The gentleman, read sarcastically, was very rude and didn't want to hear about the dents and scratched on the car rented to me. He wanted me to take it as is or wait at the back of the line. Only by refusing to move was I allowed to fill out the paperwork. Please hire more people for SAN office.
8.8 ExcellentApr 25 2020
Pros: drop off was awfull as I was in between Hertz and Dollar at the counter at LAXCons: Informing the renters exactly were to drop off the car in LA

8.0 ExcellentFeb 14 2021
Pros: Great staffCons: Car needed the interior cleaned, the inside of the windshield was filthy so I stopped at a gas station to clean it. There were also crumbs in the console that should have been vacuumed off.
2.0 MediocreDec 20 2020
Cons: Upon completion of my reservation with kayak, it gave me a complete price w/ taxes and fees included. Upon arrival to puck up rental they charged me an additional $7 sighting only the base price is guaranteed and that additional fees could be charged that kayak was unaware of and i would need to take it up with kayak.com. If this is true, i could not find any disclaimer on kayak website to the fact. If its says s total with taxes and fees then that should be the price with no suprise charges upon arrival.
10.0 ExcellentOct 4 2020
Pros: Helpful and very cleanCons: Perfect
4.0 OkayJul 14 2020
Pros: That location was massively understaffed. I went in for my rental at 2, but didn’t leave until 3. The poor staff was extremely professional, but clearly very stressed out. The first car they gave me kept telling me there was no “key” in the car, and I could not track a single employee down to help me. Eventually, they swapped the car out, but I ended up missing my appointment due to the hour delay.
6.4 GoodFeb 19 2020
Pros: The rate. The first office counter experience. The car.Cons: The car had an almost empty fuel tank. We reported this at the check-out counter and the representative seemed to enter this information into their system. I verbally confirmed that we need to bring the car with an almost empty fuel tank. Upon return, the tank had around 2 more gallons than at checkout. The receiving representatives were unfriendly and moreover they charged a $50+ fuel service fee without notifying me. Thankfully, I checked the receipt. I was told to go to the booth in the garage. The representative in the booth started with suggesting that I'm mistaken and the tank was most probably full. Thankfully again, I had taken the picture of the dashboard at the pick-up and showed it to them. I was planning to let go of the extra gasoline we had in the tank, but the bad attitude and unfriendly manner of the representatives so far made me upset and I demanded a reimbursement. Thankfully they were reasonable enough for refund and reimbursement. In short, a better check-out-in system and friendly and customer-oriented representatives can help a lot here.
6.0 GoodFeb 17 2020
Pros: The car was not ready when I got there. They gave me a un upgrade to a Camaro. When I dropped off the car (early) I was charged an extra 50 dollars.
8.0 ExcellentJan 29 2020
Pros: Everything was fine
9.6 ExcellentJan 8 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful and friendly. They even found that I had previously made a reservation that was half the price and they honored that and save d me $200
2.0 MediocreDec 16 2019
Pros: Because I used Kayak, I got sent to Holidaycars.com and they at first assured me my rental was booked only to later tell me it was not and that their "worldwide availabilities" were running low. So I had to rebook - from Budget directly - at a cost $150 more than the original, promised offer. HORRIBLE EXPErIENCE.Cons: Because I used Kayak, I got sent to Holidaycars.com and they at first assured me my rental was booked only to later tell me it was not and that their "worldwide availabilities" were running low.

4.4 OkaySep 23 2019
Pros: Absolutely NOTHING.Cons: I’m so angry, I will never ever rent from budget again. The whole thing cost me more than twice the quoted price because they slapped me with all these bullshit insurance charges that the website made it seem like we’re included. I’m only using less shady companies from now on.

2.0 MediocreFeb 27 2021
Pros: Location was convenient!Cons: Never Never Never Never again will I rent from this place! I was assigned a car that was dirty/had stains and smelled of human stench (after the car was left in the hot sun). the company hid stench with/ 4 pine scented hanging on the mirror to distract the stench). It was so disgusting when i got home i had to disinfected all the items i had in the car. Prior to returning the car I had plastic bag on the driver seat. This location scared me for life by renting me a FILTHTY Car............
10.0 ExcellentFeb 21 2021
Pros: Great staff both in San Diego and San Jose, very helpful.
4.0 OkayJan 9 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly and as helpful as possible.Cons: However the first place we had our rental for was a nightmare. We called the national line and they said they had our car ready, but the local place didn't have it so I had to scramble for a few hours. They told me I needed to go to a different Avis but that Avis never picked up the phone as I called for 2 hours straight. eventually I had to use a backup reservation I made for 2 days, but I only needed the car for 1 day, so I ended up paying $150 more than I needed to. One of the local staff people said that Priceline does not have accurate counts of cars that are available so my suggestion is that Avis and Priceline stop working together because it causes problems for the consumer, where they fix the issue.
6.4 GoodNov 9 2020
Cons: Offer wasn’t clear location did not include transportation from to airport, so had to eat that cost separately obliterating any savings discount. Also access to parking garage failed and office did not open at posted start time so had no help to drop off after sneaking into garage on piggyback of a condo resident, then had to park in avis shuttle slot since avis section of garage was locked closed by a chained gate.
10.0 ExcellentOct 10 2020
Pros: The staff at the airport was friendly and helpful and drop off was very easy. When they found out that my reservation was at a different location they were very helpful in fixing the situation!
5.6 OkaySep 27 2020
Pros: New Vehicle, Quick drop offCons: Pick up at 10am. No one at the counter until 10:15. Given a vehicle that ran out of oil (0%) during the trip. Called AVIS customer service. They told me I could either buy oil and bring the receipt to get reimbursed or I could go to a AVIS location and exchange the vehicle. I went to an AVIS location and was told there were no vehicles available and to just buy some oil to fill it up until the trip was over. Finally got back to the original location and they told me that I had to speak to the manager on the phone in order to handle my case. Would've preferred not having to go around in circles
2.8 MediocreJul 27 2020
Cons: Pickup Location was not correct for what I requested
8.8 ExcellentJul 22 2020
Pros: The staff was excellent. Ha accommodated me as much as possible as my reservations were not as planned/ordered/requested.Cons: When I reserved the rental car I wanted to reserve from airport and the agent had told me my car reservations was at a location 30 miles away so I had to pay the difference to reserve from that location.
4.4 OkayJul 19 2020
Pros: The clerk was awesome. My issue is that my original rate was not honored! I reserved a vehicle for San Diego Airport online at an affordable rate. When we arrived (after a long day of travel) we were told the address for the reservation wasn’t for SAN, but a location nearly an hour away!!Cons: Our quoted rate should be honored and the website should be MUCH clearer on locations. In fact I would appreciate a refund of the difference in the higher price I ended up paying!
2.0 MediocreJun 28 2020
Cons: Car wasn’t cleaned and had no gas. Agent kept us waiting for an hour and a half, never generated correct rental wffeement, we were billed for $233 tank of gas which we did not use.

2.0 MediocreFeb 25 2021
Pros: The reservation process was easily and I thought the price was reasonable. I cancelled the reservation 20 hours prior to my pick-up time because a friend offered me the use of a vehicle for free while my car was at the mechanic's. HERTZ charged me a $83.00 dollar cancellation fee for my $105.00 rental. Will not use or recommend HERTZ to anyone and will warn of the steep cancellation fee.Cons: Do not rent from them, if you have to cancel you will pay big time!!!!
8.0 ExcellentFeb 23 2021
Pros: Car clean and ready to go. Drop off very easy and quick.Cons: SAN airport pickup took a while. Counter attendant was friendly but running three agency (Hertz, Dollar, Thrift) all from the same area impacted the customer appreciation.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 16 2021
Pros: The staff went above standards to accommodate my rental needs. When the SUV had a problem with the tires they made sure to give me a car that would better fit my safety concerns.Cons: There was little to no trunk space in a 7 passenger suv. I was not aware that it was possible to not have a suv with no space for luggage.

2.0 MediocreOct 15 2020
Cons: I arrived at the San Diego airport to find that Economy Car rental had closed its San Diego location 4 months prior. I book the reservation 48 hours prior to arrival. So my reservation was made to a closed location. Luckily, another rental car company was able to assist me with a vehicle, bit at a much higher rate.
2.0 MediocreOct 15 2020
Cons: We couldn't find the car rental company so we went with a different one last minute. I think they moved to a different location, so we call ed them to come pick us up or for further instructions but no one answered the phone number that was given to us on the reservation.
9.6 ExcellentOct 15 2020

2.0 MediocreOct 12 2020
Pros: Nothing about this experience was pleasant.Cons: They have no idea how to provide customer service. Awful experience from end to end. Charged me the taxes and fees for an upgrade that I only needed because they didn't have the vehicle I reserved. Moved locations with no notification so I had to arrange another shuttle after taking the shuttle to the rental car facility. Couldn't get a hold of them to get a shuttle so I waited on the phone for 30 minutes trying to connect with someone who could help me. Never, ever rent from this company unless you want to experience an adventure just to get your vehicle.

That I made reservation for, there were none . The employees trued to give me a compact car. They also told me that I will have to pay for the full size car price , because kayak is a third party and they already have my money. Which was a bunch of crap.

4.0 OkayFeb 25 2021
Pros: The pick-up went fine, no issues.Cons: The car had clear evidence of collision repair. The hood, bumper and passenger fender were mis-aligned. Under the hood, clearly the fender had been replaced (newer, all bolts turned, and stickers in the inside), bolts turned on the hood as well. The passenger side of the front bumper kept popping out a little. In the sun you could easily see the poor quality repairs in the sun. The frame rails and apron were not damaged so the car was safe structurally. I took pictures prior to departing the facility just in case. Ultimately it's "Payless" so repairs are ok, however the alignment and/or steering rack still had issues. The car had a slight dead zone with the tires centered. It didn't track straight and was constantly wandering, I had to be extra cautious. There was an old water bottle left in the rear cup holder that I threw away before driving off. There were two signs posted with conflicting information about key drop off. One said leave the pink form on the dash, the other said turn it in with your key in the drop box. I informed the person working there about the alignment - he said they'd look into it. Didn't sound believable. I will avoid Payless in San Diego in the future.
6.0 GoodFeb 25 2021
Cons: I had to sign the form with damage before I saw the car (contactless protocol), at night. I get it, but legally I have nothing to stand on. I still don't have my receipt from them from drop off. No idea if they are charging me for other's damage (24 hours after drop off right now). All personal were pleasant and process was efficient.
6.0 GoodFeb 24 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly, car was clean. Once I was done at the counter, pick up was easy. Drop off was very quick and easy, with quick shuttle pick up to the airport terminal.Cons: I was given a final total of charges with my online reservation that was almost $90 lower than the actual charges. MANY customers in the line in front of me left angry and frustrated. I was very frustrated myself. Other companies have similar fees, but state them up front when reserving online. Payless hides these charges so the "total" I'm given online is not even close to what I'm actually expected to pay. I'll never rent from them again because of this. The car was fine, but had manual windows and door locks. I've never rented a car with manual door locks, even in the lowest price tier, and my rental with Payless was in the 3rd price tier. I expected a better car for the money I paid. I will not rent from Payless again.
6.0 GoodFeb 23 2021
Pros: They use the world’s worst car, a Mitsubishi Mirage, to get you to upgrade to a better car at a price no better than their competitors.Cons: The upgrade car was banged up, displayed many warning lights throughout the trip, and had a dim drivers side headlight that was inexplicably full of water. The car is in need of repair and never should have been rented out.
2.0 MediocreFeb 2 2021
Cons: I was informed at pickup time that the vehicle couldn’t be driven out of California. I had to make alternate arrangements quickly at a time when I was under a time crunch and a lot of stress.
2.0 MediocreJan 22 2021
Pros: The car was fine, drop off was easyCons: The staff at pick up was rude and need customer service training. My flight landed late and the pick up office was closed (there was no mention of closing times when I booked rental). I had to rent from another company for one day (extra $ out of pocket) and come back the next day to pick up the car for the remainder of my 2 day rental. The associate told me he couldn’t reopen and that he’d create a new reservation for another $50. I got upset and told him that I wanted the car that I already paid for for the one additional day and that I refused to pay anything additional, since I had already paid for two days. He became defensive and rude and eventually opened up my original reservation and gave me the car I already paid for. Why couldn’t he do that from the start? Why did it have to escalate and have to exchange words? I’ve rented from other places and they will help you find solutions rather than trying to get more money out of you. There was no customer service etiquette or empathy for the situation, but was met with defensive remarks and anger for telling him that I wouldn’t pay more money for a reservation I already had due to them closing before my plane got in.
8.0 ExcellentJan 19 2021
Pros: When I needed to exchange my vehicle due to a minor mechanical issue, it was fast and simple.Cons: When I arrived to pick up my vehicle there was no one in sight. When I finally found someone there was no greeting of any kind. But the agent was very rude handed me the keys and she walked out to continue her smoking, but did not direct me to the location of the vehicle. I had to read the signs to findout where their vehicles were parked and started walking down the aisle and hitting the alarm button to see which van would beep. And viola I found my rental. Horrible service when I picked up my rental but the agent I worked with when exchanging my vehicle was excellent.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2021
Pros: Lady At return was niceCons: When we got there they didn't have a car ready for us. They had to give us a car that was not what we ordered and it was dirty. We were overcharged since they didn't credit the prepayment and had to bring it to their attention at check out. They billed us an additional charge that showed up on or card with no explanation.
2.0 MediocreJan 3 2021
Cons: The agent at the counter lied to us and told us the insurance was required in California. Then when I questioned him bc the screen I had to initial said it was optional, he moved me to the next screen on his own so I could not read it anymore. He then tried to back track and say the conversation was recorded so I needed to confirm that I understood what he meant. The first rental we got was old, not comparable to the car promised to us at booking and the alarm went off every time we opened the car door. We had to go back and return the vehicle for a different one. Never again will I rent from them.
2.0 MediocreDec 30 2020
Cons: Horrible rental, dirty/stained, cigarette smelly interior. Tinted windows got me pulled over. Was not able to use the vehicle as planned. Reps at counter need retraining (both at start & end). will not use payless again.

6.0 GoodMar 2 2021
Pros: Check in and check out was easy. Car worked well.Cons: Staff seemed very friendly and helpful, but lied about insurance being required. I said I had my own, they said it didn't matter, it was required. Looked on my contract later and it clearly stated "optional". I paid more than twice what I was expecting from the booking.
2.0 MediocreMar 2 2021
Pros: Car was okay inside despite lots of external damage.Cons: Total bait and switch operation. This company requires you to purchase their own damage insurance which doesn't show up in the amount payable at counter section of the reservation. I never would have went with them had I known about the hidden fees. Plus, you have to take two buses just to get them, they're not at the normal off-site rental terminal. Disgusting customer service and false marketing. Beware!
10.0 ExcellentMar 1 2021
Pros: Helpful staff, time efficient.Cons: Make the phone number to call more obvious. Unfortunately, this rental car site requires the main rental bus shuttle, and then you have to find/call another number to get a ride off-site. But it only took an additional 5 minutes.
4.0 OkayMar 1 2021
Pros: NO SHUTTLE IS OFFERED TO THE CAR RENTAL LOCATION AND ABSOLUTELY NO NOTOCE WAS GIVEN ABOUT THIS FUN FACT WHILE RESERVING THIS CAR OR IN THE CONFIRMATION EMAIL. WE THEN HAD TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL FEE TO RETURN IT ELSEWHERE AND SHUTTLE BACK TO THE AIRPORT BECAUSE THIS LOCATION HAS LIMITED BUSINESS AND CANNOT ACCOMMODATE EARLY MORNING DROP OFFS.Cons: Disclaimers need to be given at time of reservations and/or within the confirmation so allow the renter to cancel the reservation if we decide we don’t want to use this rental company.

Cons: They tried to pull a bait and switch on me saying they didn’t have any of the car I had reserved and trying to upsell me on something different. Then I hear them telling the person next to me that they did have compact cars (after they told me they didn’t). I canceled my reservation on the spot and went next door. Shady business practices for sure.

2.0 MediocreJan 5 2021
Cons: I couldn't rent a car because they do not allow debit cards for deposit. That's why I spent money for the car I booked with kayak and just wasted money!!
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2021
Cons: Fine print deep in the local terms and conditions restricted miles for local renters. I rented a car with unlimited miles and they wouldn’t honor it. So after waiting over an hour in line with only 3 customers in front of me, they refused to honor my rental agreement and I ended up renting from another company. Save your money and time, the customer service is awful and they simply will try to swindle you, especially if you book through kayak or Priceline.

2.0 MediocreMar 30 2020
Cons: Booked a van pickup 5pm and drop off at same time 2 days later. The day off, 3 hours before pickup, I get a phone call from the location telling me I need to pickup an hour early because they decide to close at 4 “today”. Of fine. “Oh and also you need to drop off before 10am in 2 days because we will be closed at 10am”. “Or you can pay an extra $60 for late drop off”. What?? Late drop off would mean I extend pass my 24h, which I’m not!! If you decide to close early how does that become my problem?? Very disappointing.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2020
Cons: Booked a van for 2 days w/ 150 mile per day. Arrived at location to be told that policies “of this specific branch” have changed and are now 150 “per rental” (!!!??) Long story short it’s obvious Non sense. Worker at location didn’t show any compassion and on the phone corporate couldn’t do anything because “we are reservation center and customer center only works week days”. Customer service non existent, bummer for loyal and respectful customers like us but I guess that’s the way it goes now.
3.2 MediocreFeb 11 2020
Pros: Van was nice.Cons: Shuttle service was terrible/non existent. Rental office is a run down shack to smells of urine.
2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2020
Cons: I can accurately rate this—they never showed up to pick me up. I waited a half hour for the shuttle and finally had to rent another car because I had a meeting in another town. I sincerely hope they didn’t charge my credit card.
3.6 MediocreJan 2 2020
Cons: Poor attitude. Had to wait for an hr and dealt with screw you attitude from the front desk. The place was dirty and shady. The van was old (60k + miles) and dirty. It was conveniently near the airport so that is a plus. Most of all is the lady at the front desk who was awful.
9.6 ExcellentSep 17 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful. The drop off was super easy. We had a terrific vehicle for the cost.Cons: Didn't love that we had to go to the transit center for rentals & from there take another van (that we had to call & wait for). Also, we had to return by 2 or be charged extra to return it later to a different location (it was a Sat)- those were the only downsides to an otherwise great experience.
3.6 MediocreAug 24 2019
Cons: I still have not been refunded the deposit for the van rental and it has been more than 2 weeks since I returned the vehicle.
2.0 MediocreJan 22 2018
Pros: Polite staffCons: They did not have the car which I reserved. False advertisement.
2.0 MediocreDec 6 2017
Never rent from this placePros: Nothing.Cons: It was a bait and switch in that I seriously doubt they even own a Corolla or similar economy car. Granted, they weren’t going to raise the price....but then the car they were trying to give me (after an interminable wait) was actually a huge dirty van...that had very significant damage from having been sideswiped. We are talking major body damage. So yeah, no thanks. Place is godawful. And they have signs everywhere about how you really need the insurance because this would cost X and that would cost Y. (Maybe take the money you earned from the sideswiping job and spend it on the needed body work?). Pretty ominous, and give everything else I’d seen of this company...but yeah, trying to drive around the city (parallel park, etc.) in a huge damaged dirty van? No thanks.
7.6 GoodOct 18 2017
Pros: Overall it was a great deal for the Van. Only we had to pay an extra $100 because we dropped it off in LA and I didn’t realize this until we made our final payment. The staff was very nice and accommodating during the pick up process. We had no problem riding the shuttle to the rental car area but it was a little confusing because the van rental is off site so we had to take another van ( which the number was there to call for a pick up) this might need to be disclosed in the advertisement.

Pros: "Upgraded" us to a minivan, which I had no use for and made parking slightly less convenient. Not much to praise. Obviously you go with these folks (or equivalent) because of cost.Cons: Pleasant enough agent. Tried to up-sell on the pre-paid fuel but the "convenience" would have added $20 to the bill ... and I'm here because spending money on rental cars is not a form of entertainment. Just keep expectations low and you'll be fine.
4.0 OkayAug 17 2019
Pros: It got us where we wanted to go.Cons: It was a 2014 diesel. The charger for the phone didn't work. Staff tried to talk us into a larger vehicle, getting their insurance instead of what I got online and convinced us to purchase a 4 day toll device by telling us there were tolls where we were traveling. There weren't.

2.8 MediocreNov 9 2018
Once and never againPros: Basically nothingCons: Car I had contracted for was not available, offered me a minivan instead, not interested, was traveling by myself and wanted fuel economy. Agent said that I could return the next day to swap out for something more appropriate, but, due to my schedule, it would have taken me a whole day's drive to come back for the swamp...As an alternative, I asked if I could swap cars in Phoenix, which would have fit my itinerary better, was told there would be an upcharge for such. Else wanted to upcharge me for a more desirable model, I declined. Stood my ground, eventually, an economy type car was returned and assigned to me. It was noisy, lacked cruise control, a/c was very weak, as in "no fun to drive". To make up for the inconvenience, I was told I would be given a discount from my original intermediate type car reservation, however, that did not happen, they just hit my credit card with the full charge for the larger vehicle I never go to drive. When returning the car, their station was closed, with zero indication as to when they would open in the a.m. like was posted on their competitor's return stations. When I tried to return the car to their Phoenix location, I was told it was impossible to drop the car off there even though their San Diego agent had told me I could do so if willing to pay a penalty for doing so - basically one of their agents lied, no idea which one. All in all a lousy experience, since I now have to file a complaint to get them to correct the charge to my credit card account.

4.0 OkayOct 19 2018
Cons: Car was not cleaned out when I received it. There was trash under the seats, some wrappers in the trunk and side doors. It was evening when I picked up so I didn't notice until the next morning. The car smelled faintly of stale food, so they clearly did a poor job cleaning overall. The customer service was rude and impatient. At least the pick-up and drop off had reasonable efficiency.

2.0 MediocreApr 25 2016
Over-priced and dishonestCons: Pacific charged me twice as much as they estimated on Kayak. If that had been the extent of it, I may have left it alone. The day after I returned my car, however, the manager called to tell me that there is a "new scratch" on the front bumper. The car they rented to me was already scratched up, so I assumed he had gotten something confused and I could simply send the pictures I had snapped of the car before driving away from the lot. He sent me pictures of a car I'm not convinced is the car I rented, with a big scratch in the bumper, and asked that I have my lawyer call him. I have never felt so mistreated by a company. I'm certain that I had nothing to do with a scratch in the car I rented, and after consulting Yelp I noticed that Pacific has pulled this same stunt with at least one other customer. Do yourself a favor and stay far away.
6.4 GoodApr 24 2016
AveragePros: Not busy. Car was there, ready to go.Cons: Car was old and had a lot of miles. It sounded as if it needed a tune up. Car had lots of scratches and dings. Didn't like that I had to catch a bus from the airport, a rental car center, then take another van to their rental place- added another layer of traveling around and loading/ unloading.
2.0 MediocreApr 18 2016
Everything suckedCons: Firstly they charged me additional $30 to add another driver. In addition the car sucked. They said ford fusion or similar so I wanted to rent Fusion but there is no choice. They did not even have the Fusion. Every car is too old.

Basic and budgetPros: No line at checkout or check in.Cons: Very basic vehicles past the end of their life as rental cars. The checkout sheet was a farce: Marked up everywhere, and I would have had a hard time finding an unused place to put a dent in the car.
2.0 MediocreApr 12 2016
the worstPros: nothingCons: When we got to the place we were being helped by a woman and she was going through all the information and everything was fine. then about 2 min in another man comes out and says "this is only for local, this is only for local." we were like ok and kept going. then the man starts to talk over the lady that is helping us and eventually kicks the lady off of the computer and takes over. The man ask if all I have is a debit card and I tell him yes. He then says there is a $600 deposit. Let me say that again a 2-day rental at $38 and he wanted a $600 deposit. Now my mom who was with me used to work at Hertz car rental down the street and knows the industry. I am in school studying to be a lawyer. I asked the man to show me ANYWHERE ON MY CONFIRMATION EMAIL OR ANY LINK WHERE THERE IS A $600 DEPOSIT. He could not show me anything anywhere. I hold his company Pacific and your company as well responsible for doing business with a company of this sorts. I hope that my treatment was not because of my skin color, but I still do not know why this man had to insert himself into my transaction in the first place, and he could not show me anything in writing in regards to a $600 deposit.

Pretty goodPros: Relatively quick pickup and processing, car was in good condition and performed well. Associate at the desk was professional and friendly. Car was newer model Hyundai.Cons: First, got charged an extra fee for extending the rental that was not mentioned even though I had explicitly asked in advance. Required proof of insurance at check-in, which I've never had requested before.
10.0 ExcellentSep 9 2017
Pros: Inexpensive.Cons: The "rental car insurance" ads lead me to buy insurance while I was online reserving a car. What I didin't know -- Even with the reading of the clauses which are difficult to understand -- was that my own car insurance company would be the one I'd contact first before this one kicked in. (According to the clerk at Green Motion.) So I ended up buying the one offered by Green Motion, and wasted money on Allianz.

10.0 ExcellentMar 31 2016
Pros: I like the ease of working with the airport car rental center staff. They were able to adjust my pick up location from downtown to right there at the rental center and it cost me a little less than anticipated. The third party insurance presented some questions at the counter, but nothing that could not be resolve in seconds. I would use Kayak in future travel plans.Cons: I didn't like the fact the add stated it was at the airport and there was an airport shuttle. The San Diego airport (Lindbergh Field) has a rental car center for all rental car companies. The add was for the downtown location and the shuttle only transports to the airport rental center. Also, the airport rental center is MCAR which is also MIDWAY
6.4 GoodMar 30 2016
Cons: Cheapest insurance $15/day! Essentially bait and switch
10.0 ExcellentMar 5 2016
Good and fastPros: Was the least pressure I've ever had from a car rental company to upgrade the insurance. Also because they are smaller there was no line to wait. I just looked over at the long line at Payless and glad I wasn't there.
4.0 OkayMar 2 2016
Just okayCons: Even though the car was cleaned when I arrived, and I had to wait for this cleaning, it was quite dirty once all the water dried. The windshield in particular had a thick film on the inside. It also smelled like smoke even though they supposedly don't let renters smoke in their vehicles. Once I cleaned it up myself and aired it out it was a okay car for a couple days. Probably wouldn't rent from them again as the price was the same as other rentals but I have never had a car that needed me to clean it from other agencies.
5.2 OkayMar 2 2016
Deposit??Pros: Free upgradedCons: Didn't get back my full deposit of $200 (which I wasn't aware of at the initial booking through Kayak). Not sure why. Only received $170 back. Not given a specific time to drop off (the person behind counter said,"so around this same time?" To which I said yes), yet when I dropped it off in the early afternoon (around the same time), I was charged for an extra day ($14.50). But even with that and now the more taxes I paid on the "extra day" it doesn't add up to $30. So where is the rest of my money? Will go with the larger company next time to save the hidden fees..
10.0 ExcellentJan 13 2016
Amazing, friendly servicePros: They gave us a complimentary upgrade, were full of helpful information. When we returned the car and were tight on time they actually drove us to our terminal in a car (since the shuttle was not due for another five minutes).
10.0 ExcellentJan 11 2016
Pros: The car was clean and reliable! Also the staff was friendly.
3.6 MediocreJan 5 2016
Rediculous WaitPros: The car was clean and in good working order. The attendant was polite and very patience. But really?, one attendant 3 days before Christmas?Cons: I had a reservation for a full size car, as my family was all meeting in California for the holidays. The reservation was set to pick up the car at 6:00 PM. I arrived at 5:55. When I arrived there were two people in front of me. Neither of which spoke english. The attendant tried and tried to explain the rental agreements while I waited. I waited for one hour for him to process two customers. When it was finally my turn, he informed me there were no full size cars available and that the car had to be cleaned. At that point, I was pretty upset. I had to wait another 20 minutes for the car to be cleaned. In all, the transaction took over 90 minutes and I did not get the car size I reserved. And for what?, to save a few dollars over one of the majors? I am very disappointed Kayak would recommend such a terrible 3rd tier car rental agency. Lorrin

6.8 GoodSep 10 2020
Pros: Staff were talking about internal issues (employee not returning and renting a car correctly) for about 3 minutes before acknowledging and helping me. Then had to wait while they figured out which car was available and was told they couldn’t rent it because they car had technically not been returned in the system. They eventually spoke with employee that did not return car and returned it in system with an override. The company then started cleaning the car and I had to wait about 5 minutes for it to be “wiped down.” The license plates were expired and there were spill stains on 3 out of 4 mats. There was also sand in back seat and passenger seats and floors; it was not vacuumed. The tires were very worn.Cons: Returning the car was quick and simple. The car had no problems mechanically and smelled clean.

Top tips for renting a car in San Diego

  • Driving around San Diego is the most convenient and comfortable way of getting to know all corners of the region, as the freeway system is fairly easy to navigate and traffic is manageable (aside from during rush hour). Because public transportation services are unreliable in the city, staying mobile by renting a car is the best option. It is also ideal for travelers looking to explore other destinations outside the city, such as the wine country of nearby Temecula, or those who want to embark on a road trip along the California coast.
  • All the big car rental agencies can be found in the San Diego International Airport (SAN), at the Consolidated Rental Car Center just outside the airport. The Rental Car Center is accessible via free shuttle bus services that stop at all terminals.
  • Although the freeway system isn't generally complicated, always have a map or a GPS on hand to help you. When driving downtown, beware of tourists or other reckless drivers who may be too used to driving in the city. If you’re interested in hopping across the border to Mexico, make sure you talk to your rental agency, as they may need to provide specific documentation, such as car insurance that is also valid in the neighboring country. But if your plan includes a day trip to Tijuana, it's easier to just park your car on the U.S. side of the border and walk across.
  • Although traffic is manageable, roads are usually fairly busy throughout San Diego, so avoid rush hours both in the morning (between 6:30 and 10 a.m.) and afternoon (between 3:30 and 6:30 pm) if you don't want to be stuck in traffic for longer than needed. Freeways along the coast also get pretty packed on weekends, especially the I-5.

  • Brands such as Costco are more economical, and the average gas prices in San Diego are about $3.62. Mohsen can also be a good, budget-friendly option.

  • Street parking in downtown San Diego is usually available, but it tends to be quite pricey, costing around $3 for one hour, and between $10 and $30 for 24 hours. Parking laws are strictly enforced throughout the whole city, so make sure you always pay for parking. Parking in beach areas is tougher to find, but pay lots are an option.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
