We had booked a family on the internet for our stay in California in February 2020. Once at the rental company in San Francisco, we had the choice from ... 10 different family models! Very pleasant location and a first for us.

Very smooth pick up from San Diego. Arrived in Iowa following day. The drop off was a bit confusing, but that is more a matter of the location. No receipt was provided at drop off, however, they accepted the car sight unseen and told me all is well. That was very smooth, too.

My experience with my rental was excellent. When I picked it out the young lady was so professional kind and went out of the way to help me. Upon my return it was very simple and everybody was so wonderful! Definitely will be renting from Alamo in my future trips!

Our only problems was with connecting with Dollar on their 24 hr phone line. Due to uncertainty with the airlines/travel at this time we needed to connect with Dollar to change our drop off location from Phoenix to Las Vegas and add an additional day. It took several calls and many minutes on line to accomplish that. Once we finally did connect the procedure when through smoothly. Suggestion is to increase your agents that are answering for Dollar on your 24 hour line. It was a frustrating time.

There were 2 options offered for insurance. One was basic and other was full. The third option of using our own insurance was not provided. A person who's renting for the first time might not know and might choose a protection when it was not actually needed. The other deceptive practice was whether you wanted to pay for a full tank of gas or half tank. The third option of whether you want to fill it up yourself was not provided.

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.
