Pros:Absolutely nothing.Reviewed 8 Feb. 2021
review fromkayak
Cons:I had a reservation that was not honored. My family of 5 was stuck in Philadelphia Airport at 10:30pm looking for a rental car.Reviewed 20 Feb. 2021
review fromkayak
Terrible customer serviceCons:Were out of car I ordered so offered a totally unsuitable subcompact and a $30 discount. I asked for one of the many minivans sitting outside and was made to wait while the unhelpful, rude agent spoke with her manager. She eventually stormed off to "smoke a cigarette" while the manager silent threw me the keys to a dirty minivan. The whole interaction was intimidating and depressing. I would seriously think twice before working with this franchise again.Reviewed 2 Oct. 2017

Pros:The st0aff was super friendlyCons:Reserved a Dodge ram a week prior to picking up rental because I needed a truck. Ended up with an suv because there were no trucks.Reviewed 28 Nov. 2020

Cons:Got charged more than quoted by Priceline. Had to wait 20 mins for the car to get cleaned after the previous use. When returning the car was promised the final receipt would be via email, never received that email.Reviewed 19 Jan. 2021

Pros:shuttle did not come automatically after drop off. we waited 20 min then someone asked if we needed a shuttle. why wouldn't it just be doing rounds?Cons:car smelled overbearing of bad air freshener to cover up cigarette smoke. terrible and nauseating. Start charging 1k for people who smoke in the cars!Reviewed 1 Dec. 2020

Pros:The car itself was fineCons:The employees were completely disinterested. Service was bad. I asked for a fast pass but it wasn’t provided. I never received an email receipt as promised. If the desk employees are an indication of the level of service dollar provides, I am sure the car did not receive enhanced cleaning. Avoid Dollar/Thrifty!Reviewed 28 Nov. 2020

Pros:The staff was not friendly but dropped off was easy.Cons:Better customers service.Reviewed 6 Oct. 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Price of the rentalCons:Drop off required you to go into the building and the associate had to process the check out, other car rental companies do not do this, they just have you drop the car off outsideReviewed 6 Dec. 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Nothing since I was left paying for a car I never used.Cons:Non-refundable fares should be discouraged and not used at all. The lower rate can be averaged into a lower cost even partially refundable plan that doesn't outright penalize consumers with legitimate reasons to cancel a plan. In an attempt to pay for a rental for my sister who is trying to help me when I was injured the company would not allow my sister to use my rental. So SHE had to purchase the rental herself. I don't mind and plan to reimburse her since she going out of her way to help me. HOWEVER Dollar will still screw me over and require me to pay for my rental even though I can't use it. Their response... "Hello Richard, Thank you for your reply. I am sorry to hear that you had this accident and I know this has led to such serious inconvenience. I would like to let you know that in an effort to get this refund as a one time courtesy I have spoken to higher management but unfortunately they were not able to grant it. I do apologize for the inconvenience and if you have any other question please let me know. Kind regards and have a nice day. Eric, Customer Care If you need to reply to this email, please remember to not alter the subject line in any way as this is crucial to ensuring your response is received appropriately. ref:_00D61Z8h3._5004NhoYlM:ref " I will no use DOLLAR or KAYAK if either continues to use this parctice.Reviewed 28 Jan. 2020

Pros:Great value, decent car.Cons:No walkaround prior to rental. After I left the lot, I discovered the car had body damage. During the rental period, i was concerned that I would be charged for the damage but fortunately I wasn't as there was not a walkaround inspection when I returned the car either . Also, the fuel policy is a scam. Buy the tank of fuel in the car for a king's ransom OR pay $9.00/gallon upon return OR gas it yourself within 10 miles of the airport and provide a receipt proving the distance. There are very few gas stations within 10 mile of the Philly airport so this was quite burdensome to avoid an enormous charge to refuel the car.Reviewed 31 Jan. 2017
