They made me spend taxi fare to go to the airport with all my luggage to get a car there. Wasted time I wanted to spend in Miami with friends. Once I got the car the rest of the rental went well, return was easy.

Awful! Had my confirmation number and paid for the insurance. My husband, 4 children and myself went to pick up our car after getting off our Christmas cruise. We were told that they overbooked and did not have a single vehicle. So there the 6 of us stood. Stranded in South Florida. They would not shuttle us to a hotel and did not have another available vehicle. They were guessing that they may have one on Monday. The only thing they offered was their understanding for us being upset. My family was not the only ones they did this too. There were atleast 50 families. Such a disgrace. I had to find transportation to a hotel and then to Enterprise 45 minutes away for 6 of us and all of our luggage. Completely appalled.

We got threatening , upsetting phone calls saying that the car will be confiscated because it is overdue. I prepaid the car from January 7 ,2019 to March 14,2019 .When we returned the car on March 14, the manager assured us that there was no problem and to disregard any of those calls in the future. We were very intimidated initially .We plan to rent again for approximately the same time period next year .

Manger was helpful and got me into another car as quick as possible. It was not cleaned yet. But if I waited for a clean car I would have been late to my meeting

Horrible experience. As we were taking off, realized the pick up location was far from the airport even though I booked with the destination being FLL airport. Called to change, upcharged $100. Never booking through carrentals.com again.

I had no problem with Avis, however I do have one with car rentals.com. I made the reservation for a location and when I arrived, Avis stated that had not rented from that location in 8 months.
