Mostly good after I went and Signed paperwork the lady at counter said I receive pic of the damage On the car when I picked it up by email never received them even after 4 calls. The next Morning i saw a lot of scratches all over the car and took my own pic just in case they said I did it. When I dropped the car off they said I would get a emailed copy of receipt after dealing with them and never receive pic I asked for a paper receipt which they did give meReviewed 11 Jun. 2024

They reserve 1 car online to get you to their location which is a way away from other car rentals. Then they will not have the car you reserved and charge you a higher price for what you do end up gettingReviewed 1 Jun. 2024

They should provide what we booked. I booked a large suv and they only had a small sedan available when I reached.Reviewed 24 Apr. 2024

I didn't know that Economy was located outside of the normal rental car center at San Diego Airport. The information was not evident in the confirmation email from Kayak. We took a shuttle from the airport to the rental car center only to find out we needed to go to another location to get our car. We had to take an Uber there afterwards. We were traveling with two small children so this process was stressful.Reviewed 22 Apr. 2024

It should be noted that this facility is not at the main pick up for car rentals. With 2 children and heavy car seats the 2 stops to get there were hard plus we had to pay to return car the location closed way before our flight back home. PReviewed 21 Apr. 2024

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
