This review is for CarRentals.com mostly. I showed up to pick up my rental at which point the desk agent rolled his eyes and said that he didn't have a car for me. He stated that cars reserved via CarRentals.com were not guaranteed. He tried to upsell me on a giant SUV which I did NOT want to drive and I certainly didn't want to pay 3x the price of the car I reserved to do so. We were forced to go to another location to pick up a car and told that they had lots of cars available. Upon arrival at the second location we were told that we would need to wait 45 minutes to 1 hour for a car to be available. All in a terrible experience and lost 2 hours of our vacation day and ended up paying more than reservation stated. Would not use this site again.

Great experience, but was a little disturbed that I purchased insurance twice...once when I registered on-line to rent the car and another when I picked up the car. Why did I need two insurance policies?? I would LOVE if I was re-imbursed for the $36.00 policy I bought when I rented the car on-line. When I picked up the car I was told that insurance was NOT valid and I needed to purchase additional insurance?
