"After a long shuttle bus ride to the rental car facility, we walked over the the Budget counter to see one guy working and a line of about 20 people. No other company" had a line at their desk. The manager refused to help and only poked is head out to hang up some signs and argue with some other people. It took over an hour to get my car from a guy that seemed to hate his job. When we returned this rental a few days later we encountered the same lazy attitude from the parking lot employees...Never again with Budget!

"I scheduled the car to be picked up at the Altamonte Springs
just outside
. My ride from the airport drove me there" and there was no more
office in the hotel - no contact with me, the 1-800 number contact didn't even know there was no more
office there. So we googled the next closest
(several miles away) and took a
they might be there still and know something. The gentleman behind the counter told me he had tried to call me the day of my flight using my home number - there was no message. He also have 2 other cell numbers to call, but didn't try. I ask him about some kind of compensation and he said he'd give me an upgrade - well, after sitting in the car about 15 minutes, I could tell it was a 'smoker' car; it ran rough and jerked when given gas. I did buy a can of spray febreeze and kept using it in the car - I left it for the next unfortunate soul at the airport. So, I chalked it up to 'live and learn' and hope AAA can use another company else; I get my own car from someone.

Hi Joy,
 
This is Sarah B. in Member Care. I'm happy to help!
 
Although we don't track going rates for various services because this varies widely depending on market factors and location, members are encouraged to include how much a service costs in their reviews.
 
When you're looking at a particular company's reviews, you can get an idea of the average costs. You can also compare this to rates charged by other providers in this category on the List. 
 
I was able to find several rated providers to help with your project. For your current need though, our Snapfix specialists would also be able to do all of the dialing for you, match you up with a top rated company and arrange to have them call you to figure out the logistics. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please fill out the form in the link below and our Snapfix Team will take it from there!
 
http://www.angieslist.com/fix/
 
If you would like to reach out to these providers yourself, please let me know. I’d be happy to send these to you.  No matter which option you choose, I hope you’ll take the time to fill out a review when the work is done.
 
Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at memberservices@angieslist.com. We're happy to help, Joy!

I booked a
Providence Car Rental Companies Provider Name Locked
full size car from priceline, full price paid $268 for a week. I was given a camry. And I did not ask for an upgrade.
When I returned the car, I was charged another $172. I saw that but was in a rush, so when i reached home, i inquired with priceline. I was told it was because I upgraded my vehicle.
Well I specifically refused upgrade. and I DID NOT KNOW that Camry is not their full size car and why did they still give me that??
When i call them, they say well I signed for an upgrade and they cannot do anything!!
That's misleading and cheating.
Never again

This was one of the best car rental experiences I have had. The rental process was quick, all details were explained adequately. We were able to choose one of several models of small SUVs (the vehicle class we chose) to fit our needs (we needed decent

space but not a large back seat). Checking the vehicle back in at the end of our stay was also very quick. Would highly recommend Thrifty!

Diamond employees do a great job of returning phone calls promptly and providing me with the information I need to keep all of our vehicles in good condition. Though a dealer had suggested that I needed more routine maintenance, Diamond confirmed that, in fact, all I needed to do was a tire rotation. The recommendation as to where I should have that done also saved me $50 or so.

Wow, Unbelievably RUDE to their customers. I was quoted price on the phone and when I called back to book the rental the price had changed. When I asked why the price changed the guy on the phone instantly became rude, condescending, and augmentative. Instead of answering my question, he simply said "This isn't going to work" and hung up on me.
I was just trying to be nice and give them business...

The driver allowed people from the street into our party bus where all of our personal items and wallets were located when non one was on the bus and without our permission or knowledge. When I called them to ask for a supervisor, the person took my phone number and I have yet to receive a call back.

Wanted to rent a car while mine was in the shop, went for weekly rental as my car would take several days to be finished. Rented one of the cheapest cars as far as price, and received a Nissan Versa Note, which has auto, air, and a lot of options. The car was very clean, well maintained, and very fun to drive. I actually would have considered buying this car from Enterprise if for some reason mine was not able to be fixed.
I have used Enterprise in

Missouri, and

and

Cajon. I was impressed each time with the quality of the cars, and the professionalism. I also have appreciated the lack of hard-sell when it comes to the expensive rental-car insurance, which I normally do not spring for.

I recently rented a car from Dollar and wanted to let you know about my experience. I reserved a Mid-sized SUZ well ahead of picking up my car on 05/11/2015. My

Internal Airport I had to finally ask someone where to find the car rental location. It was new and no one had bothered to put up any signs. After going through all the falderal to sign papers I went to the garage to get my Mid-sized SUV. There was one Toyota

-4 and pulled up to the gate when I noticed that the “Mtce Req” light was on. I returned the car, unloaded and reloaded in one of the Mazda small SUVs, because that was all there was in the spot for Mid-sized SUVs. We left the garage and headed for our destination. I wasn’t too far down the highway when I noticed that at anything over 60 MPH the steering wheel had just enough shimmy to be annoying. Obviously an alignment or wheel balance problem. I glanced up at the service sticker in the top left corner of the windshield and it had been there so long that the writing had faded away. No telling the last time this vehicle had been serviced. Since I had trouble locating the rental car garage when we got to the airport, I felt that I should verify the car return location at

International. The evening before we returned, I went to the Dollar website and found a listing of 4216 Air Ramp Rd. Your map for that address showed it to be south of the airport off of West Blvd..

International Airport location, the map still shows the wrong location. Luckily I had given us extra time and we circled back up to the airport where I found some Car Rental Return signs and we were able to return the car that was less than I had contracted for in the first place. Since I travelled 11 years for business before I recently retired, I’m not a novice traveler. I know what to expect and I simply can’t think of anywhere that Dollar satisfied what I had contracted for in our agreement. I sent this email to

Their cars and service are fine. I have used them in the past because I like that they will come pick me up and take me to their office to get the car in the first place, and they will drop you off where you need to go when you are done with the vehicle. The problem is though that they scare you into paying a lot more to get their insurance and don't disclose that your own vehicle insurance or credit card cover it.
