Best get away!
Pros: Booked it all online. At the airport showed my I.D. and with a few initials I was done. There were no hidden fees. Everything that I knew I was paying was online. No waiting in line and figuring out what the extra fees were going to cost me. Quick response time. Not to mention what a great rate I got. It was a nice, clean, newer Nissan.

Renring at GEG? Better have full coverage if you live locally
Pros: Car with 500 miles on it. Carri waz absolutely fantastic. Excellent service and attitude. Extremely professional yet friendly. I was worked up, due to having driven from Sandpoint, just to be told i could rent a vehicle unless I had a specific type of full coverage insurance on my vehicle. Id rented from them before and dixnt have this ever come up. Anyhow, Carri diffused the whole situation, with a smile amd a positive mental attitude. If i had a position for her In my company , i would hire her in a second.
Cons: That there was no mention of insurance requirements, specifically for locals, on the rental site. Would be great to send an email or make a call to clients who are located in areas where certain restrictions apply. I was glad i jad met those requirements... full coverage on my personal vehicle, that also covers the full cost of the rental car in case of an accident.

Rented the same car, twice!
Pros: I loved the fact that the counter service people were willing to work with me, and gave me the same car to drive both times (12-23 July and 9-14 August 2018). I will rent with them again.

They reneged on an advanced reservation.
Pros: What's to like when you get stranded?
Cons: They refused to find us an alternate car at amother carrier when they ran out of cars. The counter help said he was sorry and shrugged his shoulders each time I asked him for something he could do in lieu of nothing. What a shitty experience I'll not repeat. As someone who travels weekly for business, I'll be sure to never rent with Dollar after this charter experience, nor allow anyone from my team to do the same.

Customer service needs work
Pros: Everything went as planned as far as the rental and what I expected.
Cons: They need to do a better job setting clear expectations and disclosing what will happen if and should you hold the rental with a debit versus credit card. We were given misinformation on the hold for DC and it was held for double the amount discussed- not a very good way to start the deal. They then charged the entire amont of the hold and I had to wait several business days after the return of the car for the hold to release. When I called to find out what happened the service rep was incredibly rude, I haven't had a customer experience that poor in a long time. You could tell he didn't care about the job and probably has gotten fed up explaining the DC hold. This rep was frustrated from the get go we had to speak to his manager to get the confusion cleared up.

Overall Good, but Misleading about Gas Prices in S
Pros: Check-in was relatively painless.
Cons: Slow service at the counter checking in. Worse was telling me that gas was significantly more expensive in Spokane than the fill up option, which it wasn't, so I ended up losing a little over $11 in that transaction.

Cold, windshield not scraped
Pros: The car and staff were fine.
Cons: Arriving late at night to -5 F weather with a pre-booked car that was completely cold and with ice all over the Windows. I would've expected the cars to have been scraped in the very least, but even better wouldve been if they warmed it up at some point prior to my expected flight time arrival.

Pros: Car was clean and as promised, price was as advertised. It actually was a 4 WD Explorer which was better than expected. Pickup and dropoff was easy with the exception of the hard sell of the CDW.
Cons: Hertz would not confirm that car would be 4 WD, even though I expressly noted I would be in an area where this was necessary. The desk agent really gave a hard sell on the CDW, which I had to decline several times before he understood that No meant No.

29 Jan. 2017
Cons: I was extremely disappointed in the mannerism of the check out counter person when dropping off the car. VERY RUDE....did not help me at all and charged me double the price. The bill was suppose to be 67.00 and I was charged 138.00 because he fill it with gas. I told him I went to the gas station and didn't find the button for the gas or couldn't open the tank, I had a receipt and proof I was there and he said..."WELL, you should of looked on the inside door'. I told him I did and he threw a receipt at me before ending the discussion. I said 'what is this'? He said, 'YOUR BILL' and walked away. I told him a little under 3/4 a tank and he said, "I CHARGED YOU FOR A HALF OF A TANK". I rent a car practically everyday. Sorry Hertz...last straw for me. Last week, it was another charge for 26.00 for gas when my TANK was FULL...it was a surprised added on 3 days later. I emailed Hertz regarding the surprise charge twice and never did get a response. I AM DONE WITH SUCH A LOW PROFESSIONAL COMPANY

12 Jul. 2019
Pros: When their system showed a completely different price than what I was given on Kayak (three times more), they were able to fix the issue. Although it was very inconvenient for me to wait for them to fix this, and to go to their services counter to resolve it, it did get resolved. So thanks for that.
Cons: The vehicle smelled like tobacco smoke. I was not able to pick up the vehicle in Canada and drop it off in the USA, so I had to pick it up in the USA, and do a lot more driving. They told me the vehicle had a full tank, and when I got to the car it only had a quarter tank. Pricing problems too.

Ran out of Rental Cars
Pros: The agents were helpful in assisting me with alternative arrangements
Cons: Budget ran out of rental cars I was told I had to wait 45 minutes to an hour for the next car I had to rent from Thrifty as a Walk up and pay double of what I had anticipated I was going to pay. I had to pay in excess of $450 for a 2 day rental charge with Thrifty. This is the first time this happened - I certainly hope it's the last.

Top tips for renting a car in Spokane

  • The charming city of Spokane is easy to navigate and has light traffic, which means a car is the quickest, most efficient and comfortable way to explore the area on your own schedule. A car will also allow you to discover other destinations outside the city, such as Spokane Valley, which is only 10 miles east of the city and is home to more than 70 lakes and rivers. If you're visiting in the winter, make the most of the ski season by heading to the city's five ski resorts, which are all located within driving reach.
  • All the major car rental agencies, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Spokane International Airport (GEG), which is approximately 5 miles west of Spokane's city center. The car rental desks are located in the Ground Transportation Center so, if you're arriving by air, just follow the ground transportation signs after landing. Most agencies are open from early in the morning (6 to 7 a.m.) until late in the evening (11 p.m. to 12 a.m.).
  • Even though the city experiences a great flow of tourists throughout the year, driving downtown is relatively easy compared to other big cities in the country. Traffic rules in the city are pretty straightforward, but remember that all exits are on the right-hand side of the road. Winter driving may be the trickiest part, so make sure you have good snow tires and that you keep plenty of distance between your vehicle and others'.
  • Traffic in Spokane generally flows nicely all throughout the day, but driving during rush hour can add extra time to your travels. Avoid driving into the city or to the airport between 6 and 9 a.m., or out of the city towards the residential areas between 4 and 7 p.m. Traffic congestion only gets worse when it snows in the winter, as well as during road construction season, with one of the busiest commutes being the stretch from downtown east on I-90 to the valley exits.
  • Book your rental car in Spokane at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Spokane are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average
