Pros:Staff was rude. Manager was not, however and tried to satisfy my reservation, but ultimately was unable to.Cons:Misleading representation of type of car to be rented. I booked because an X3 BMW was promised and then when I went to pick up car was told that wasn't possible. Definitely a bait and switch tactic.Reviewed 7 Dec. 2020

Pros:The drop off was ok. Not the friendliest. I am extremely hard of hearing, and repeatedly asked the clerk to please slow her speech down. Never happened.Cons:I could have been given more of an explanation as to how and where to pick my car up. Also, the car smelled like marijuana (interior). It was an extremely uncomfortable car. Also, there was a dent and scratches, and these were never acknowledged.Reviewed 19 Feb. 2021

Pros:Both at pick up and drop off, the people I spoke with to help me were excellent, very polite and helpful.Cons:It would have been a time saver if I was told that the drop off at PBI was shared with Hertz Rental, there was no signage, since Covid I was told everything has been combined.Reviewed 23 Nov. 2020

Pros:The car was spacious, the pickup representative was very kind despite our delay, as a van (which was reserved and needed for moving space) wasn't at first available and we had to wait. The car ran nicely and was very clean.Cons:Transparency of cost. We just received our final charge and were surprised by a $150 cleaning fee, despite the car being perfectly clean upon returning it. This was not disclosed prior to our dropoff and really pushed the cost of this rental over the line for us financially. Had we known of so many surprise fees, we would not have booked at this cost.Reviewed 1 Mar. 2021

TOTAL RIP-OFF - DO NOT RENT FROM THEMPros:Rental Nov 8 from Newark. First they gave me a small car that smelled like cigarettes with a gas tank that was not completely full. Not much to like. Then they hit me with a $30 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE FOR TOLL CHARGES!! NOTHING to LIKE.Cons:At the counter, the clerk asked me if I wanted to pay for an ez-pass. He said I would pay one charge up front and not have to stop to pay any tolls. He knew I was taking the car from Newark airport in NJ to JFK airport in NY, and was well aware of the route and the tolls. On November 28 I received a notice to pay $17.15 in TOLLS PLUS an outrageous $30 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE. This was NEVER explained to me at the time of the rental. I was told ALL tolls were covered by my purchase of the EZ-Pass. How about I DIDN'T LIKE ANY OF THIS. TOTAL RIP OFF. DON'T PATRONIZE DOLLAR.Reviewed 26 Dec. 2016

Cons:The overall service of the agents is very poor. First, when I picked up my car at the Washington Dulles location, I found out that the car I booked which was specified as "special" is actually a compact car! This was not disclosed when I booked the "special " car. So I ended up upgrading and paying twice as much as my original quoted price. If I've known that from the beginning, I would have booked a car that is specifically a full-sized one for a lesser price from another rental car company. Secondly, when it was time to give me my car, the agent just pointed out to the parking lot where to get my car. So I have to haul all my luggages plus bring my wife who's in a wheelchair to the rough asphalted parking lot. The agent NEVER went to the car to do an inspection. When I noticed the scratches on the car, I asked one person who was passing by (an employee) about it and he said they don't care about those scratches. Then when I returned the car to another location which is Newark airport, the agent there asked for the inspection report and I told him I don't have one because there was NEVER an inspection in the first place. That is when he started pointing out the dents specifically on the top of the car which was not so obvious until it is pointed out to you. So he made me sign a claim for the damages of the car even though I didn't cause any of those damages. The people of Dollar rent a car are sneaky and will get your money and more! One good consolation is that I purchased a rental insurance so I used that for the claim. Getting the rental insurance ($11 per day) is worth it!Reviewed 12 Jul. 2017

Dislike, likePros:Clean car , very well maintained . Customer service at check in and check out very pleasant great guys receiving the car outside just as wellCons:Trying to purchase a last min protection collision plan for the car was a Hastle seemed impossible , spent over an hour speaking with both dollar customer service and the collision protection company none could help me . Thanks to my pass experiences manage to navigate the site that was giving me problems . I got to purchase the collision plan . PAYING over 18$ a day for EZ pass is ridiculous amount to nearly 100$ total cost . Which I only used 3 times keeping a cost of around 14$ . Was no very happy . I could’ve borrow an Ez-pass from anyone of my family members. I will warn everyone of this . Thought it will be a convenience . They were good at extending my drop off time by a few hours, at a small fee it was but easyReviewed 6 Sep. 2018

Pros:Drop off was quick and painless. I think we waited about 25 minutes for the van to be ready at the Newark airport when we went to pick it up. We had a Chrysler Pacifica van and it ran well, got over 25 mpg driving fast, and the AC worked good.Cons:On the downside, the third seat was elecric folding and it did not work properly. We had to manually push the cushions down to get a flat floor. For a long trip, the front seats in the Pacifica van are strictly mediocre, and the 2nd row seats are awful - like a padded jump seat. Too many gadgets. I will reserve final judgement on the billing for when we get the credit card statement.Reviewed 19 May 2021
