2.0 Mediocre26 Sep. 2020
Cons: No cars available
2.0 Mediocre11 Aug. 2020
Pros: Never got the car because they wouldn’t give me oneCons: The staff was very unprofessional and rude
2.0 Mediocre19 Jun. 2020
Pros: Nothing. I called the day before to confirm they would have the vehicle class I reserved, a seven passenger SUV, and they confirmed they would. As we were driving there I called them and they said “oh we tried calling you but no answer.”, and “ya we don’t have that vehicle!” So we had to cancel our trip!Cons: The service SHOULD have been at the bare minimum...which is actually doing their job! I know your company is closing, so this explains why.
6.4 Good8 Oct. 2019
Pros: It was easy to book online.Cons: Local Hertz in Rockford did not have the reservation on file. They accommodated by picking up the van in another location, but that was only because I called ahead of time to confirm the reservation. It worked out in the end. During pickup, the employee that went over existing scratches was not thorough. When we brought up additional blemishes and scratches he just told me to take a picture with my phone. Not very comforting. We did key drop off which was fine. I had left my garage door opener in the van and called the next day and a helpful lady answered and retrieved it and put my wife's name on it to pick up later. My wife went to pick it up and the gentleman who provided customer service was not attending to current customers. He was on his phone having a conversation that can be surmised to be a personal call. When finally attending to customers, he stated to my wife he did not have the garage door opener and proceeded to only check lost and found after being asked repeatedly to do so. When nothing turned up, my wife was about to drive away when the gentleman came running out the door with the opener that had a note attached to it with my wife's name on it. So we did rent our van for our trip and got our opener back, which was my fault for leaving in the van. We will not be using Hertz though at least at the Rockford Illinois location due to the poor customer service.
5.2 Okay28 Sep. 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly until we had a problem.Cons: Unfortunately, had to use a car reaking of smoke. Agent said if we wanted to wait an hour, they could probably get a car cleaned up for us. Agent had to turn away other customers because no clean cars were available. Not acceptable for a company the size of Hertz. Disappointing.
10.0 Excellent24 Sep. 2019
Pros: Staff was very helpful and friendly. Loved the Nissan Versa. Drop off was quick.
6.8 Good16 Aug. 2019
Pros: Ford Fusion was greatCons: Waited 40 minutes for a person to come to the counter to get my key. Was told to put the key in the drop box after hours when returning the car, the slot in the box was too narrow to fit the key. Had to make a second trip back to drop key off the next day. I'll be trying another provider.
9.2 Excellent6 Aug. 2019
Pros: Staff at pick up and drop off.Cons: Car was very dirty on exterior, windshield was hard to even see out of
7.6 Good10 Jul. 2019
Pros: Quick and Easy to rent vehicle. Friendly staff. Straight forward business.Cons: Vehicle maintenance. We went through some heavy rain while on our trip and the windshield wipers were pretty bad. The alignment needs to be done as well; car kept pulling slightly to the left. We were driving 1000 miles on the highway, it was abit annoying.
5.2 Okay25 Jun. 2019
Pros: The staff was not personable at all. Just was a job. Not much help.Cons: Returned the car early & yet no discount, not much of a explanation, They just didn't seem to care much one way or another. I rent cars every week for work and if I got treated this way every time I would find a different job.

They try to hurt youPros: NothingCons: They would not let me rent because i had an out of state license, my debit card was not godd enough and wanted a credit card because of the out of state license. Total inconvenience, since i do not have a credit card, so they just said screw you.
9.2 Excellent10 Oct. 2018
Almost perfectPros: People were friendly courteous and efficientCons: There was confusion on wheee the car was and I had to walk a ways to find the lot and car. Would have been better if they could have brought the car to me.
5.6 Okay8 Aug. 2017

8.8 Excellent24 Sep. 2016
Friendly Rockford staffPros: The lady in Rockford was wonderful! She was fast, friendly and very informative. The over all experiance was quick and easy.Cons: I'm spoiled with my car at home, it's quiet and smooth. The Hundai I rented was great but I could feel every bump in the road. It's not the renter companies fault.
9.6 Excellent7 May 2016
Pros: Upgraded to a compact SUV free.Cons: Did take about 20-30 minutes for the car to be prepped and ready. Car was clean. Not a big deal for me, But might be for some.

Pros: Rockford airport Avis personnel don’t care about customers. Allegiant airlines moved my flight to come in at 8pm. Avis employees would not stay or come in so I could pick up a rental car. Unacceptable and unprofessional. Avis doesn’t care !!!!!Cons: Had an employee stay allowing Me to rent / pick up a car.

4.0 Okay8 Mar. 2019
Pros: The stag at the desk was extremely helpful and the work space was clean and tidy.Cons: You need to accept Debit Cards for payment. Being financially responsible and not putting things on Credit should not hinder a person from renting a car. They wouldn’t allow me to use a family members card either because it wasn’t mine or my husbands. I won’t be using Alamo until this is resolved.

2.0 Mediocre30 Dec. 2017

7.6 Good27 Dec. 2017
OverbookedPros: They overbooked and instead of the car I reserved, I had to drive three kids and all our luggage out of state in a truck. They did comp our gas and give us a discount which was nice of them and I was thankful for the 4 wheel drive once it snowed. I think better inventory checking is needed though.
2.0 Mediocre17 Apr. 2017
There is no after hours pick up like the website suggests.Cons: Counter closes at 2pm on Weekends. There is no way for after hours pick up to happen.
10.0 Excellent27 Sep. 2016
Customer service rep at the airport was awesomePros: I had to wait in line for awhile to get my rental car. I really did not think my wait was unacceptable as I could see the service rep was just very busy helping others ahead of me in line. Anyway, she gave me an upgrade in my vehicle due to the time I had to wait. Very considerate, will make me choose Alamo again in the future.

Pros: NothingCons: They called me the next morning and told me they did not have a rental for me. So maybe check your inventory before letting someone book a vehicle.
3.2 Mediocre22 Oct. 2018
Got wrong type of car rental, agent misleadingCons: Reserved a premium sUV (Suburban) as traveling with 4 adults and 3 children in car seats. Was given a full size suv (Tahoe) even though the same agent called 3 days to confirm asking if I needed a suburban premium suv. At gate when I tried to add my dad as a driver agent said he’d waive charge. Then handed me keys and said the Tahoe was all ready. When I said I didn’t want a Tahoe as my strolled doesn’t fit in back with our 7 passengers and luggage he said that was all available at site. Offered a second vehicle to rent which we didn’t want as I already paid for and reserved a suburban. I had to call national customer service who’s only solution was for ME to drive 1hr+ away to exchange car! Then offered to refund only $50 for mishap. I had paid $66 more for premium rental so demanded at least that back. I won’t be renting from Budget again if they cannot provide rentals they advertise as available.
2.0 Mediocre26 Jun. 2017
What is the point of a reservation?Pros: NothingCons: I made reservations weeks in advance. Was called an hour before I was to pick up the car and was told there wasn't one available.
8.0 Excellent16 May 2017
Pros: Very kind customer service person. Upgrade without charge! :)Cons: It was not really clean
5.2 Okay23 Feb. 2017
Pros: new car and nice bluish color; easy to pick up car and drop off car (except NO drop off sign that says Budget-I had to park and walk in to ask where to park the car). I'm not happy to spend $100 a day to rent car but it was the cheapest price available so happy about that.Cons: ALL DIRTY WINDOWS, inside perfume smell was annoying, drop off guy had lack of communication and charged wrong credit card becuz he didn't ask me-he assumed I wanted same card charged. I expected he would ask for my charge card and my signature. He credited my account and took a different card but I did not want a charge and a credit on that card. Then the words he used seemed he was blaming ME. He was Not very apologetic at all. Plus he was RUDE to the people behind us when we left the counter.
6.8 Good2 Apr. 2016
Pros: The dropoff was quick.Cons: The rep in Rockford Il tried to hardsell double coverage collision coverage and even though we had purchased collision coverage/travel insurance through Allianz on the online aggregator we used. He had to redo the contract 2 times because of the excessive add ons that Budget attempted to add. Rep was very slow and tried to distract me with chatter. Car was late and rep said that he tried to call us while we were en route to pick up to tell us the car was late. Although we were picking up the car in Rockford he called NJ.
