Pros:I liked that the car was simple to use without a lot of confusing upgrades.Cons:I was not clear on where and how to catch the van to their site to get the car. Would have preferred clearer instructions with my reservation. Also their van does not say "Economy Cars" on it , so I missed the first van. Wasted a lot of time.Reviewed 20 Oct. 2017

Unfair Business PracticesCons:We rented a van with Economy on 11 July for an upcoming vacation. Economy called us four days before we were supposed to start traveling and told us they didn’t have the van available and that they were going to cancel the reservation. They wouldn’t offer a larger car or /SUV or any vehicle of similar size so we could maintain the good rate that we had gotten when we had initially set the reservation two weeks prior. We tried to get assistance from the booking site and they just kept sending us a confirmation for the rental when we had already received the call that said we didn’t have a car. We were also concerned that we would get charged for the van as nothing official came through back through the booking site .Reviewed 8 Aug. 2018

Cons:About an hour after driving away from the rental agency the rearview mirror fell off. Two days later the car died completely on the NJ Turnpike and I had to scramble to get a tow to catch my flight.Reviewed 5 Oct. 2020

Cons:I rented a car in advance and the rental company at the airport closed earlier than their stated closing time and I missed the rental. So I had to rent another car and lost the $200 because it’s non refundable due to 3rd party rental. I will rent directly from the rental company from now on.Reviewed 19 Feb. 2019

Don’t rent here - Newark/EWR locationPros:The counter customer service agent was nice and knowledgeable. The two van drivers (pickup and drop-off) were nice and loaded bags for us. Good price. But the cons outweigh the pros on this...Cons:The pickup/checkout process was S L O W. Had to wait a long time, with just one person in front of me. Their process to rent the car too F O R E V E R. They charged an extra $10/day for my wife to also drive the car. I’ve never been charged extra for my spouse to drive a rental car (two drivers). The car had a bad smell. Wasn’t completely clean. Had only a half tank of gas. And the steering wheel shook when going faster than 50 mph. Upon return, we were told to call a number before 9 AM on a Sunday to tell a van driver we were almost there. We had to call multiple times, and when someone eventually answered, he was surly and told us a driver was already there and that we didn’t have to call. When we dropped off the car, no van or driver was there. After waiting for 5+ min we called the number again and the next person was nice and told us a driver would be right there. We won’t rent cars from here again.Reviewed 11 Feb. 2018
