Did not arrive on time when returning the car . Did not pick up calls on agreed time. Could have followed up on texts but they did not.Reviewed 10 Aug. 2022

Our flight was an hour late landing, the car rental company has a 30 minute policy then cancelled our reservation without notice. Therefore we had to scramble for a new rental. Kayak, should make these policies more noticeable before reserving a rental.Reviewed 10 Aug. 2022

1st, there is no shuttle to/from airport and it’s quite a distance ($20 uber ride). Small hole-in-the-wall desk on 3rd, close to the night market. Many people standing outside on their luggages, waiting for a car or a cab? 2 persons behind desk and a handful of other guys (no uniforms or badges, so not sure who works there or not) walking in and out. I booked the car approximately 3Hrs before pick-up tine. When I showed up to the desk after waiting in line, with the confirmation email, I was told they don’t have my reservation and don’t have a car for me. I was told I had to deal with KAYAK and I was left out on the spot with nothing. Totally unprofessional. Had to go back to airport by my own means and go to more « traditional » rental agencies. Lost about 3Hrs in the process, and the $60/day difference between rates compared to the promised rate from Economy Rental…Reviewed 10 Aug. 2022

My first car would not start once I reached my destination. I called economy and they could not bring me a new vehicle for 2 days. I finally got the working car the second to last day of my trip.Reviewed 6 Aug. 2022

Beware. This popped up as an option and we were desperate to get a car for a day. Drop off and pick up location separate from airport with no shuttle. Office closed early and did not open until 8am with no after hours contacts. Car was in bad shape with lots of miles.Reviewed 4 Aug. 2022

Unfortunately the rental office was not ready to handle what seemed to be multiple reservations on a Friday afternoon. It took two hours before we were able to get the rental vehicle. The vehicle we rented was a standard size SUV, we got a 2018 Dodge Journey with a questionable condition tire, bad wipers and the car engine was just horrible to drive in the LA freeways. We rented the car to drive up to mammoth mountain, and the experience was awful with this vehicle; luckily it didn’t break down. I would not recommend this location for rentals in LA.Reviewed 4 Aug. 2022

We waited 50 minutes to be picked up. Perhaps they were waiting for other folks to show up before sending the shuttle out. We were alone when we called but the place was crowded by the time they finally came. There wasn’t enough space on the shuttle for my kids when it finally came because there were so many other people. I had to leave them and the suitcases while I went to get the car and pick them up after. If you have your own insurance that covers rentals (credit card), they will charge you an additional 11.95 a day so after all was said and done, Economy was not a better deal than the other places. The staff seemed miserable working there. No smiles or friendliness at all. They were sufficiently professional but all seemed very unhappy to be there - from the shuttle drivers to the counter people I encountered coming and going.Reviewed 4 Aug. 2022
