Cons:Rathe was $134 and was changed $356Reviewed 18 May 2021
review fromkayak
Where are staff?Pros:NoneCons:We returned car 330 pm and not one person was in return area. There was a sign for us to mark contract with the mileage and gas level and drop it in the drop box. I understand if car is returned after hours but this was in middle of work day in the afternoon. Did not leave me eith a comfortable feeling.Reviewed 7 Dec. 2017

Pros:After trying several rental car companies directly without success, Kayak was able to get me several options for my trip. It seems that rental car companies are not overly excited to rent cars for one way, day trips. I needed to travel 200 miles, one way, to pick up my new car. Kayak was able to find cheap rentals with major companies that I just couldn't get directly. Thanks Kayak!Cons:You should have been there earlier! Oh, wait, no that was my fault. Next time I know where I will check first.Reviewed 13 Nov. 2019

Customer service was not customer servicePros:They did listen.Cons:You would think that after all the hassle, I asked for a discount or to please find us something and honor the price I agreed to pay - no discount on the current issue, no discount on a future rental, etc., etc. They obviously don't need or want our business.Reviewed 2 Apr. 2018
