Pros:The guy upgraded me to a large SUV.Cons:My flight was 4 hours late due to a mechanical problem. I called Advantage to alert them I would be late for my pick-up, and the woman told me my reservation was cancelled after one hour. If I wanted a car, I would have to re-book at the current rate, which was 3 times higher than my original rate. When I arrived in Houston, I waited in line 45 minutes to pick-up my car. The guy there said nothing about me being late, nothing about my reservation being cancelled - he just gave me a car. Why does one person tell me my reservation had been cancelled? It seems like this staff has no idea what they are doing.Reviewed 27 Jun. 2016

CAR A LEMONPros:The agent was very thorough during pick-up.Cons:The car was horrible. It was loud, you could hear the tires rolling on the concrete. It was so loud driver and and passengers had to yell to be hear correctly inside the car. Apparently,there were no shocks on the car either because every bump in the street was felt. I tired to exchange the vehicle at several locations but no cars were available. The airport location representative attempted to exchange the vehicle but the system would not let her complete the transaction because I did not rent from an airport location. The ride was awful.Reviewed 31 Jul. 2018

Pros:The car was clean, in good condition, and ran well.Cons:Pickup didn't clearly communicate the added fees, so after he printed it out the first time, I had to wait in line again to ask for him to reprocess the rental agreement and waive the roadside and collision insurance provisions. He then deferred correcting the agreement to the remote desk (in the parking garage) - why couldn't he have corrected it himself, instead of making me take the shuttle and explain it to a new set of employees? With dropoff, it was unclear where I was supposed to leave the vehicle, and the lot was unattended, so there was no one to ask.Reviewed 19 Jan. 2016

Beat to hell carPros:The car style was okayCons:Everything, the service was horrible, they put an extra $200 hold on your CC for damages, the car's oil change light came on all the time. If you get a flat? That's your problem, not theirs, call and have it fixed at your cost which is likely to happen as the tires were nearly bald. Interior wasn't bad, but not cleaned and the exterior of the car was pretty finger up.Reviewed 22 Jul. 2016

Pros:In decent condition with only a few scratchesCons:Nothing showing I didn't do the scratches on the exterior. I didn't want to have to argue when I brought the car back at the end of the trip.... but there isn't anyone to talk to in the garage. Car had not been washed at all. It was dirty inside and out.... but especially outside. Someone could have at least ran a hose across it.Reviewed 18 Oct. 2016

Great service for a great pricePros:I rented a very nice Hyundai Sonata at Hobby airport in Houston. I only had to wait in line about 10 minutes to get my car assignment. Michelle was kind enough to offer to help me get my luggage to the island to get the bus. It was a bit confusing because Advantage works with a parking garage and uses their vans for pickup and dropoff. When you return the car it may be difficult to find since it's not well-marked. Return your car at Airport Blvd and Glencrest Street at a parking garage. Again the man who checked in my car helped me with my luggage and so did the van driver. After reading all these bad reviews I was prepared for the worst. I was pleasantly surprised.Cons:It wasn't clear to me that the shuttle van did NOT say Advantage on it but rather was the name of a parking garage where they keep their cars.Reviewed 11 Apr. 2016

Worst car rentalCons:Don't get fooled by the lowest price. When I arrived Houston (IAH) and shuttled to pick up the car, there was one lady (Barbara) serving at the check in counter and there were 4 guests in front of me. It was at about 3:30 pm on Tuesday and there were almost no customer at other rental offices. It took at least 15 minutes for each customer, who all ended up unsatisfied. Even if I booked it online, she tried to see additional items such as insurance, extra protection, etc. Her attitude was very aggressive and she kept cutting in and told what she wanted to say. The car was dirty and had existing dents and scratches.Reviewed 7 Apr. 2016

Good RentalPros:We rented from Advantage on a recent trip to Houston and had a very positive experience. The staff was helpful, the car clean and shiny, and it ran well throughout our trip.Cons:The only annoyance is one common to renting cars in Houston. You have to make a decision to add a Toll Pass for $10 per day (which includes the tolls). There are toll roads that don't take cash and unless you are familiar with the highways, you can get stuck on one. With caution we took the pass but only used it two of the four days, for tolls that were less than $10.Reviewed 4 Jun. 2016
