Alamo has become my go to choice when renting. Competitive rates, less sales pressure at the desk, and your choice of car within a class; these are the things that I value in a rental car company, and Alamo delivers on all three.

Was good other than we had to return car after first day of driving, as front brakes were grinding, so half a day of vacation lost... these mechanical issues should never happen, other than that was smooth

I wanted to get a convertible, since we were in San Diego, and the person who showed me the car said they were out. So then I asked if I could trade it in if another came back. They said yes. They gave me a number to call, but they never answered. I call all 6 days we where in town.

The estimate as shown by carrentals and the final price differed by $3.50 due to an extra tax. This tax was always disclosed by other auto companies except for dollar and thrifty, which makes these companies marketing practices deceptive. I was unhappy and complained and all the staff had to say was, if you are not happy, you can leave . No apologies whatsover

Hertz was an easy pick up. They seemed to have the longest lines compared to the other rental companies but maybe they were going through a shift change or something. There was only 2 people working the counter then another man came to work the quick reservation pick up phone booth things. I went there because we had a reservation but he was only helping one at a time so I went back to the line. Another girl ended up jumping on to another system and helped us. However I did choose an car which was compared to a malibu or camry- but when I went to pick up, she told me my reservation was compact and charged me $10 more per day for the type of vehicle we were picking up. Had I not paid the extra fee, we were going to get something that looked like an egg. Other than the up charge and the wait all was good. The vehicle we got was a 2019 Kia Optima, and it ran like a champ. The drop off was super easy and the guy checking it back in was super friendly which was a plus at 4:30 in the morning.
