2.0 Poor

Oct. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

They gave us an upgrade.

Cons:

Dollar shares employees with Hertz at the Linante airport. Directions to the rental spaces to get the car were terrible. Never saw a green bridge to cross over! Most importantly,the car's rear bumper was literally duck taped onto the car! The employee at the lot was nowhere to be found. Went back to the rental desk. The clerk came out to look for herself and then said that no one had checked the car that had been returned in the morning. Really? No one checked by 2pm? They had no other car supposedly. Fortunately, my husband is a Hertz Gold member and she provided a Hertz car and an upgrade. The whole process took 90 minutes. Terrible experience.

8.0 Very good

Oct. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The price was great, the car (Fiat 500) was perfect for a road trip in Italy and it was a great drive.

Cons:

It's terribly complicated to pick up a car at Malpensa airport in Milan. It seemed like every car rental desk had everyone waiting 2 hours to be served. I think Hertz is particularly worse because they only have one desk with a handful or less of agents serving Hertz, Dollar & Thrifty rentals. First, it's not easy to see the signs that Dollar rentals can be picked up at Hertz. I lost a 1/2 hour just trying to figure out where to go to get my Dollar rental. Second, the wait was 2 hours...really 2 full hours on the morning I arrived. It does not help that Kayak's instructions say that Dollar is "outside of the airport" which is not true. It's with all the other car rentals right in Terminal 1.

Pros:

Easy to find the car and get out of the airport once I had my contract

Cons:

Waited over an hour to get to an agent to check in and get my car. Way to few agents for the number of people renting cars. Completely unacceptable

Cons:

It would be more honest to include items like VAT and "other fees" that are charged by rental companies so consumer could make more accurate price comparisons. We paid almost twice the advertised price advertised on Kayak. Not happy customers.
