Counter rep was friendly. Another rep shows you to the selected car. Res was for a Nissan Frontier pickup truck, due to price value. Arrived at 930pm, was assigned a monster size 4 door pickup, Ford F-150 or some other similar size. Asked for original smaller truck, none available. Asked for a sedan, none available although they were on the lot; “those are reserved”. Like my original vehicle was reserved but apparently given away. Even tried using a “free upgrade” card, would only give me $10 off an upgrade. Finally just kept the monster truck. Typically would be a more accommodating experience.

I only needed the car to get from the Sacramento airport to my home 90 miles away, and the cost of renting from Enterprise and dropping at my home destination was less than a shuttle. The line at the Enterprise desk was QUITE long (15 people in line?) and initially there was only one agent to help people. While I was waiting in line I actually considered whether it would have been worth the extra $30-50 to have rented from Hertz where I am a Gold member and could have just walked out and grabbed my car--but decided no, for the price it was worth it to stand in line. Other than the wait--everything was great. When I dropped the car off it was the same thing--one agent, long line, no one outside to check the car. However, I asked the agent (who was busy helping someone else) if I could just leave the key and a copy of my contract and go--and she said yes--so that's what I did, and a half hour later I had an email from Enterprise with my receipt.

I was disappointed in the fact that it was a long weekend (Memorial Day) and the line at the Hertz counter was out the door with only 2 agents working and maybe a 3rd one showing up randomly. I finally was able to pick up my car but it stunk of cigarettes. Being asthmatic, the whole trip I coughed and had the windows down with 2 air fresheners going but nothing seemed to help. Let's just say I've had better experiences before, this one was not one of those good and positive experiences.

Even though I prepaid for my rental they charged me an extra 170 dollars for my 3 day car rental. I ended up paying close to 500 dollars just to rent a car for 3 days. I will never be using Hertz again. The staff was also very rude and when I went to return my vehicle nobody was around at the return location and I had to go find somebody.

My experience with Alamo Sacramento was very positive. She informed me of all my options as well as the costs...nothing hidden. And I even got an upgrade!

The line was short, the clerk was pleasant, and the car was exactly as requested. When we returned the car, the attendant was very pleasant and mindful of our need to get through the process quickly. We have booked Dollar again for our next trip, and will continue to do so.

In Sacramento you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. You may also buy additional insurance through your supplier, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) usually provide some coverage.
