Jackie took care of me and got me into my car quickly with an assist from Fernando who helped from home on his day off. The car was clean and in perfect condition. That's the kind of service I've grown accustomed to from Economy. They work hard to provide great service. Thanks huys.Reviewed 24 Mar. 2024

There was an unnoticed clause that said I couldn't get a refund, so when a snowstorm changed flights, I had to pay for the car even though I wasn't in San Diego to drive it. I don't think I'll use Kayak again.Reviewed 20 Mar. 2024

Bait and switch. They forced me to take insurance even though I'm fully covered. They wouldn't give me the car without agreeing. Ended up costing 3x more than quoted. To be fair, even at that price, it was a competitive rate.Reviewed 20 Jan. 2024
