Worked well, as expected. Would use again.Pros:The agent had a shortage of SUV's and offered a deal on a full-size, but as I needed the high clearance they gave me an SUV as reserved. The vehicle was in good shape, powerful, no issues.Cons:No USB or Bluetooth in the car. I imagine it's the luck of the draw.Reviewed 27 Jul. 2018

Unprofessional and arbitrary rule.Pros:Price, but other companies have similar prices. I've rented from all LAX companies and this one is at the bottom of the list. Plus is that their seem to have plenty of shuttles.Cons:Requested proof of insurance (which no other rental in the US or outside ever requests). Would not accept my showing online where my insurance company showed payment. I don't believe they were asking other renters and felt discriminated. Had to call my insurance company to email scanned image of insurance card. Then, while none of the agents were serving any clients except the the one sent that had told me she would not rent to me, they made me wait for that one agent - seemed like just to further harass. In addition, be aware, the like Fox Rental, this company requires a deposit - in this case $200.Reviewed 27 Jan. 2016

Unimpressed, won't be backPros:My husband and I live in Irvine. We flew into LAX with our young daughter and planned to rent a car to drive home. I reserved one through Kayak but once we got to Advantage the company turned us away saying we didn't qualify to rent a car. Apparently if you are local you have to have full coverage insurance on your personal car (instead of just liability, which is completely legal in the state), to rent a car from Advantage. The conpany doesn't even offer their own insurance if you don't -- they just turn you away. So we were stranded! Luckily Alamo was just don't the street. We had no issues renting from them. We are in our young 30s and have excellent credit with no driving history. Not sure why Advantage doesn't want our business but that's fine -- we'll never go there again.Reviewed 7 Jan. 2017

Worst Car Rental ExperiencePros:Absolutely nothingCons:I prepaid for the car rental, waited a long time for the shuttle, and finally get to the rental office only to be told that they don't have cars at all. If I prepay for the car, I expect to have the car waiting at the designated time, and if not the same car I reserved, at least some car. The staff seemed careless about my problem. Please do not work with this horrible company, because it gives Kayak a bad name - I booked through Kayak, hence I am holding you partially responsible for working with subpar companies that shouldn't exist at all.Reviewed 12 Sep. 2016

Pros:My rental for an Advantage car rental was through CarRental.com. I mistakenly pushed a non-refundable rate. I caught it immediately. The refundable rate was only $3 more ($60 vs $57). I tried to correct but the web site wouldn't allow. I tried to phone CarRental.com but they don't accept phone calls (that right there should warn you about using CarRental.com). It was my mistake so I ate the reservation cost and I accept that. However I strongly recommend NEVER use CarRental.com. They are unforgiving!!!!!!!! Terrible company!!!!!!!Cons:NOTHING!!!!!!Reviewed 21 Jul. 2016

Pros:Barely anything.Cons:Initially, we waited more than half an hour for the shuttle to take us from the airport to the car rental. It never came, while other car companies shuttles were coming 3 or 4 times. We had to take a taxi to the car rental! Notwithstanding, when we arrived at Advantadge we faced an unending line, and had to wait there for 1 hour and a half!!!!! until we could be attended to pick up the car! On top of that, while on the road, the car showed an alarm saying "maintenance needed." We almost freaked out. Terrible service, car was under our expectations, and the price was definitely not worth it for the bad experience that we had. Because of the delay to pick up the car we spent hours in traffic to go from LA to Palm Springs, wasted time that we could have enjoyed in the city and suffered a lot of stress. We were really disappointed. We are never renting again or recommending this car rental company.Reviewed 5 May 2016

LAX Shuttle Service - Non-existentPros:Car was new and in good overall condition. Drop-off was a breeze. Price was excellent.Cons:Waited for an 30 minutes for a shuttle to come by. Started calling the local Advantage office. Called 4 times, navigated the VRU to get to a live agent. All four times the phone rang until it disconnected. Ended up taking a shuttle to another rental car company and then walking almost a mile with my luggage. When I got to Advantage, there were 3 agents all clearly with phones at their stations - why not pick up the phone!? At any rate, it was already 10:45pm and I had a long drive, so I just got the car and went. The car had not been cleaned, interior or exterior, and the insides of the windows were so dirty that I had to stop and buy windex and paper towels to clean them. Other than these issues, everything was fine.Reviewed 20 Nov. 2015

Pros:Rates, service at the counter and return were terrific. The car was in great shape and ran reliably, so terrific there.Cons:The shuttle pick up at the Airport took over 20 mins to come, people on the shuttle were complaining the driver was taking too long. The shuttle to the airport was much better. I was concerned when I picked up the car to be informed that I was responsible for the tires. Really? I get the car after who knows who and however much wear and tear has been put by others and I am responsible for the tire wear from those before me as well as my own? I will think twice when renting from you again if this continues to be the case. Of course everything went well, but I have to admit, I was constantly concerned about the tires while driving...Reviewed 1 Jan. 2018

Lied to at Pick Up - unacceptablePros:The vehicle itself was good, drop off was speedy and virtually no wait for the shuttle to the airport (although the latter possibly by chance).Cons:I have hired cars all over the world during my travels but never been bare faced lied to about 3rd party insurance. My credit card covers me for insurance and has worked out fine on 4 different continents so I didn't want to buy any further insurance. "CJ" at Advantage told me, and I queried with him to make sure he chose his words carefully, that it was 'obligatory'. It is not. I wish that I had seen the other reviews before booking as it is indeed much wiser (and will probably end up less expensive) to use a reputable company instead.Reviewed 8 Feb. 2016

Incredible long line ans hidden feesPros:Car drove wellCons:The line to take the car took exactly 52 minutes from then I arrived in the rental office to when I was able to talk to a person. Total time was 1h02minutes. As a consequence I lost an appointment. Despite my existing coverage thru my card, the teller told me I needed to hire additional coverage. Total cost ended us being double of what I reserved for. The fees were not explained in the booking process. The car was not the model I had booked, this is generally a big deal, but the ca I got seemed worse.Reviewed 3 Sep. 2018

You get what you pay forPros:Decent, clean vehicle but no extras. No automatic locks or windows and manual key entry.Cons:I was told there would be a $200 hold/deposit on my vehicle and they ended up charging the entire amount to my card. Not happy about the way it was not truthfully explained. The shuttle took 40 minutes to get picked up from the airport. I waited another 30-40 minutes to get my vehicle. The vehicle was very basic and older and mostly manual locks, entry and windows but I'd waited so long already I didn't want to make my wait for the car any longer by asking for another. When I returned my vehicle off at 3:45am I was told the shuttle was coming in 15 minutes to take me to the airport. It took 30 minutes and when the driver arrived he parked and got himself some coffee and checked in on some parked vehicles while we all stood outside and watched from the line. They must have been understaffed that early in the morning. Overall not a "bad" experience but I don't think I'll come back.Reviewed 5 Jun. 2017

Wouldn't rent to me and canceled the reservationPros:The price was good.Cons:Would not rent to me because the name on my credit card and Drivers license was not an exact match. I use my nickname on my credit cards which is clearly a derivative of my legal name. The two did not match and their company policy is that they must match exactly. I can understand that, even though the policy is not clearly stated on the website. So, if your legal name is Jonathan and your credit cards all say John, be prepared to be refused. I went down the street to Alamo and rented no problems using the same card and license.Reviewed 5 Mar. 2018
