Very Poor ServicePros:They didn't charge me to cancel their garbage service. There's a win.Cons:Despite what is advertised online, Advantage only allows an average of 150 miles/day if renting locally--beyond that, $0.55/mile. At this rate, a trip from Charlotte, NC to Chicago, IL and back will cost you about $250 more than advertised. This is the only company I know that does this. Very slow service at the CLT location. Had to wait over 20 minutes to find out they were about to try and screw me over. Asked for a lot of insurance information for coverage. Of course, I didn't have any of that on me since I was dropped off to pick up the rental. When I asked about other coverage options, I wasn't provided any other than to call my insurance provider's customer service. Out of frustration, I walked the extra 20 feet to a competitor with no reservation a few days before Christmas and got a car with coverage and unlimited miles all within 10 minutes. And for only about $100 more than Advantage would have charged me for the reservation I made 6 weeks in advance. I would recommend any other option over Advantage.Reviewed 29 Dec. 2016

There needs to be a class action lawsuit and invesCons:Since I got the rental to drive last minute to see my mom who was just diagnosed with cancer, I didn't take the time to read all of the consumer reports reviews on Advantage. Not only was the pickup process terrible, they over charged me by $200 on my rental when I got by bill. After calling and emailing Advantage repeatedly, they still haven't responded about this. I checked consumer reports and the experience just like many others. Kayak should shoulder some responsibility for having a partnership with such a low life company. If I don't receive retribution for the overcharge I will take legal action on both Kayak and Advantage even if it costs 50 times the overcharge amount. No one should go through what I have.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2015

Pros:Pickup lady (Donna) was kind and helpful. Also overwhelmed.Cons:Pickup took over an hour due to understaffing. Car was cheap and loud. Worst of all it smelled awful like smoke. My eyes were watery and my had a headache the whole time I was in it. Fortunately I only needed it for 24 hours. If I would’ve had time at drop off I would’ve asked for my money back.Reviewed 27 Feb. 2021

Hidden informationPros:The only reason I booked with them was because of their price.Cons:But I guess you get what you pay for. When I first booked the car online nowhere did it say of you are in-state you have to have a credit card or that you have limited mileage. How is this fair when if I was from out of town I got unlimited miles and could use a debit card for the 200 deposit??? Getting to the place is where they tell you all of that. Since I dont have a credit card I waisted money on a reservation with them. They wouldn't let me add another driver to the policy since the reservation was done online (yet online...it's not an option to add another driver). I couldn't use someone's else's credit card with the same last name as me (and who was right there with me to give consent for the use of their card) yet at other car rental companies I have done that before in the past. I needed a car and theirs was cheaper so I ended up getting another reservation with them in someone else's name. With this reservation (although it was also done online) I could now all of a sudden and an additional driver to it. They said when we turn the car back in, any occurred charges could be paid for with another card. When we brought the car back, they lied and said they wouldn't charge us for an additional driver however, they did anyways placing that charge on a credit card that no charge should have been made to. I had absolutely no problem paying for the additional driver, however it would have been done with a debit card so don't lie to me about where it's getting charged to not mess up people's credit status.Reviewed 10 Dec. 2018

Pros:Nothing. I booked a car with them 2-3 weeks prior to my arrival in Charlotte and when I showed up they didn’t have any cars left. They didn’t offer to help find me a new one or give me credit for the inconvenience. None of the other rental companies on site had rental cars available either so we were stuck without a car and had to take a 2 hour Uber ride.Cons:They didn’t not call me to let me know they didn’t have any cars until 1 hour before my pick up time, which I was on a flight at that time. There was no assistance offered to help me find an alternative mode of transportation. They literally left me stranded. I would never recommend this company to anyone.Reviewed 28 Sep. 2020
