Nothing. There is no one thing which I likes.

Cons:

They ripped me off. Overcharged. Used our poor language, threatened us, made us sign paper without explanation under pressure. They said ALL THIS HAS TO BE ON CONTRACT. BY later in their email they said it wasn't necessary. We pay over $600 more. The Allianz insurance wasn't legit for their policy.

Sixt tricked US info buying effectively mandatory insurance, which totalled 3x the original price. 400$ instead od 120$. Super-bad, would never recommend or use again.

Cons:

My flight was delayed. Alamo was aware of my flight number because it was notified by reservation and they are at the airport. Alamo closed and I left without transportation at the airport. I will never book again. I had a bad time and I was distressed to stay without transportation in a country that did not know anyone. I had to settle with another company.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

My rate for a rental in DR was surprisingly affordable when I booked online. I went ahead and purchased the insurance made available during booking. When I arrived at the rental counter, additional insurance was required with the rental, regardless of the policy I'd purchased (mistakenly believing it was part of Alamo's a la carte options). So I had a useless insurance policy and the required Alamo insurance more than doubled the online quote. Bastards.

KAYAK

Pros:

We had a Ford Explorer SUV that was able to fit our big group and was clean, drove perfectly, it would have been a 5 star review had there not been poor service with Europcar and the insurance scam they pulled on us

Cons:

I rented a SUV from Europcar through carrentals.com I purchased the insurance package through car rentals and when I go to Punta Cana they told me that for the SUV I cannot have the insurance I bought, I must purchase Europcar's insurance package. They also said that they DID NOT have it in writing as to where that actual company policy exists. They also did not have any paperwork that showed the different insurance packages. It seemed very sketchy and when I asked if there was a supervisor to speak to the guy said he was the supervisor. My rental went from being $375 to almost $700 with the little insurance scam. I emailed Europcar's customer service the day it happened, after my 7 day trip I still had not heard anything and still two weeks later have not heard from them.

Interrent make their money from flogging you insurance. We bought a compact car for a week for $170 which was definitely too good to be true! The extra insurances they insisted you have cost an extra $190. And in addition the paperwork we received to start included a deposit of $170 which was reasonable, less so the deposit the pick up site demanded, of $800! The no-show up fee of $50 will be challenged but with the cabs to and from the hotel, was still cheaper than the extra insurances. Such a shame. Would not hire from interrent again.

Pros:

Reservation made sept 2016 for the ONLY vacation I get all year at Christmas. Confirmed six times - even before leaving LAX! Arrived and was told "sorry lady we have no cars". Without all the horrible details here's a f ew: - 3.5 hours begging/crying at counter they did not care although my reservation was acknowledged. - Christmas day, traveling solo and disabled, they did not care. - Supervisor got on phone, he did not care. - I had nowhere to go and NO transportation. - 3.5 hours later "we found a car it will be $800" THIEVES AND LIARS. I witnessed FIVE other renters on either side of the Thrifty rental counter told the same thing.

Cons:

Learned from MANY locals, "they do it all the time". - my reservation was for 16 days $300. I would NEVER give that country one dime out of my own pocket although the USA has given them HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars to rebuild. Their culture is deplorable. They need to be delivered from the rampant "deception with a smile."

Pros:

The car drove nice, but was a stiff ride in the back seat for two adults. We were able to get four adult and 6+ bags. The air conditioning worked well. It had enough power to manuver when needed.

Cons:

The Hyundai Accent is a small "Full size" car. Very short leg space in the back seat. The outside of the car was clean enough, but the inside of the windshield was very bad. Refracted the sunlight to the point we had to stop and find water and towels to scrub the inside clean. I expected the required liablity insurance to be extra, but the required ups and extras almost doubled the original quoted cost. I was very nervious driving, fearing someone might hit me and we were warned of the consequences.

Pros:

Car was fairly new and clean. Upon return rep drove us to our terminal in the car and helped us manage our luggage.

Cons:

There were surprise extra charges and they insisted on putting a $1500 hold on my credit card because I declined their insurance. The car was smaller than what I reserved and there were no other options so we squeezed in and didn't have a very safe situation. There were several stickers partially removed from the windshield that obstructed the view.

Beware!!! Even if your insurance, or your credit card says you are covered for CDW in the DR, they will force you on arrival to buy CDW from thrifty DR. They claimed it was Thrifty policy. It cost almost as much as the original rental price. Beware!!

Cons:

The car was not ready when we got there and we had to be shuttled to another location to pick it up. I had purchased additional insurance on Expedia that I was then told when I arrived at Budget that that insurance was not valid for Budget nor in the Dominican Republic at all, so then I had to purchase another whole insurance. The person assisting me was rude and argumentative. He had me signing papers without even telling me what I was signing for nor what the price was going to be that I was committing/signing to. When I asked him the price he pitched a big fight and acted very immature and like I was an inconvenience. The car I got had tons and tons of dents all over it so I then had to make sure that they saw every single one so that I did not get scammed even more.

We had to pay 70 USD taxi, round trip and also 282 USD insurance for no car. It was a disaster that destroyed our holiday. It's a huge mistake to have them as your franchisors. They don't speak English, it's a huge waiting time, no car, and the services are a disaster!

We had 2 dents on the car that I told the hertz guy about. He saw them and agreed, but didn't add them to the damage sheet! So, at the other end, they are trying to charge us for dents that I have pictures of on my phone! The language barrier was a joke. If I have to pay for damage that was already on the car, I'll be coming back to Hertz for this.

Pros:

Honesty upon return

Cons:

Was quoted a price and when I picked up the car I was downgraded to an suv that was not close to a “Tahoe or similar vehicle”. I was forced to sign into multiple types of coverages that according to the rep were mandatory. Price more than doubled from quite. Rep on return advised none were mandatory

Pros:

The car was large enough to fit 3 people and all the luggage comfortably.

Cons:

I was given a price of $202 when I rented the car.I spoke to a Hertz Club Gold booking agent and they confirmed the price. Once I arrived at the Punta Cana airport: 1.) We waited over 45 minutes for someone to help us. There was nobody at the counter for 30 minutes. Then someone was who was helping another customer walked up, completely ignoring us. She was extremely slow and looked very inexperienced. Another Hertz representative showed up about 15-20 minutes later. 2.) The representative that helped us said that the price we received from the Hertz Club Gold member was just to reserve the car and the price of the car is actually more. I showed him my email receipt and he still said that's not what it shows on his screen. After that, he started adding all of these additional charges including insurance, gas option and a 28% tax. I told him I wanted to decline the insurance and gas options and he said that I could not an that I had to because it's a law in the Dominican Republic.I told him that none of this was ever communicated to me and I would have changed my travel plans to not use a rental car if I knew this was the case. I was stuck at this point and needed to pay for the car which now has cost me around $300 additional to the $202 I originally reserved. 3.) The car I was given was in terrible shape. Not only were there dents on the exterior but the inside was dirty and there were stains all over the seats. The driver side floor mat was not meant for the car. It partially covered the gas pedal and made it dangerous to drive. on top of all of this, the tires were bald and the car slide many times when I was braking. I have pictures of the dents in the exterior, floor mat and tires as proof. Additionally, I was only given the key to the car and not given the keyless entry module. This was absolutely the worst experience I've ever had renting a car and I was expecting much better service and vehicle since I was renting through Hertz. Also, the website and Hertz Club Gold representative should have explained the insurance and tax scams before renting the car. I will not be using Hertz in the future due to this experience.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The staff at the Punta Cana airport were horrible. They didn’t wanted to give me a car just because I didn’t paid much for my reservation online they only had cars if I was willing to pay more than 250$ US. With my reservation they said they don’t have a car and I have been charged on my credit card

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

It is a total rip off. Our confirmation stated that we would not have to pay anything else. They added over $250 to the agreed total. We spoke to their customer service desk and got no where. The first day they gave us an economy car when we prepaid for a mid suv. NO credit there. Car was filthy.

Cons:

It's hard to explain, because I didn't really understand it myself. But I'll try: I book a car that was $101 for five days. When I got there the total price ended up being over $550.00. Apparently theres an insurance and other fees that are not mentioned when booking that is required to rent a car. They photo copy your ID, passport, and credit Card too. After it was all said and done. I choose not to rent the car and was charged a $50 no show fee.

Pros:

Like how easy it was to dropped off.

Cons:

I was given one price online and at the counter I had additional charges that no one could assist me with. I had to paid an additional $60 for dropping it off at the same location I had reserved it for but was told that it was not included in the price of reservation, I was force to use their insurance for an additional $20 otherwise they would not release the car even though I had my own insurance.

Waiting at the counter after a long flight to pick up the car and to be told that I have to pay so many extra including the Collision / LDW of $ 8.95 or $ 19.00 daily when I do have my own insurance. From an estimate booking of $ 556 I end up paying $ 1696.11. Never again I will be booking a car hire with a broker.

Got to car rental counter only to be told that they had no cars available and none of the other car rental companies had cars. We had to get a taxi to our destination and 2 days later we were able to secure a car from Budget but at 5 times the cost of our initial reservation with Payless.

Arrived at airport and there were no cars. Attendant said she would call and deliver a car to the hotel next day. Still no car, called everyday and still no car until day 5 of trip and then offered a compact (not suitable for 4 adults and baggage) and asked to come to airport to collects. Lies, bad service, awful company. Also price listed is wrong - highly inflated insurance costs on pickup.

Top tips for renting a car in Punta Cana

  • Explore the very eastern tip of the Dominican Republic on your own four wheels and rent a car for your time in Punta Cana. With beautiful beaches and the inland stretching out seemingly infinitely, a car is definitely a must to get from A to B in this region. Make the most of your holiday and reach any beach with its wonderfully clear blue water or a stunning golf course conveniently and in comfort.
  • Punta Cana International Airport is plopped amidst the region’s heart and is only a few minutes from many popular destinations. Various car rental agencies are situated at the airport, including companies like Thrifty, Avis, and Hertz. This remote corner of the world will most likely require visitors to have their own wheels if they do not want to be dependent on taxis. By car, it will take a maximum of half an hour to get to the northern side of the region, where most hotels are located.
  • Driving in Punta Cana can be a bit of a challenge for first-time visitors, as many street regulations appear to be considered suggestions rather than rules. Motorcycles are also a common sight and they can whizz around a corner and be difficult to see coming. Driving defensively is the number one rule when coming to Punta Cana, but when doing so, there is nothing that can stop you from exploring all the beauty this region has to offer.
  • Compared to major cities, rush hour in Punta Cana is comparably tame, but from 8 to 10 am and 6 to 9 pm, roads can face increased traffic as well. During the summer, traffic also increases as tourists flock into the region to enjoy the sun, white beaches, and crystal clear water. Especially around the coastline, traffic jams can occur in the peak season.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Punta Cana for C$ 41 or less
