The lady at the counter was having a loud conversation with a coworker across the room the entire time she was checking us out. She would only look down momentarily to give us quick instructions such as ,Sign here, and, The pink copy is yours. When we turned the car in early the next day for our early return refund, the other customer service rep found that this first lady had typed in a bogus email of random letters instead of the one I gave her. I suspect she simply wanted to get me out of there as soon as possible so she could get back to her important personal conversation with her coworker. That's just my guess. As for the car itself, it smelled really bad of cigarette smoke. Never coming back to this place ever.

I made my reservation and put the time in. Due to flight delays I was a couple hours past the reservation time. I waited while one rep was working with a couple and another at the desk(who may have just come in) for over 15 minutes with no acknowledgement. Then once I got to the counter I had to wait 45 min to an hour to actually get a car. This was not a process I'm used to using Avis or National where I make the reservation and select my car without stopping anywhere. I realize you aren't them but at least adding customer service to the process would be helpful and appreciated.

Experience was mixed. The price was great and car was great but a challenging tradeoff. I arrived late at night. No fault of the rental company but the airport train wasn't working so had to wait for shuttle bus to the rental center. That wasn't horrible but then a 2nd shuttle bus to E-Z's more remote site is supposed to run on a set frequency but took at least twice as long. I think we waited outside for over a half hour on a cold San Fran night. Then after getting assigned a car by a professional and courteous (but non-friendly) agent, she gave me a car that was parked outside the building. They had numbers along the fence up to 15, but my spot was #32 in a lot packed full of cars. After wandering around in the rain for about 5 minutes getting soaked, I went back in to ask where my car was again. Another agent wondered why I wasn't given a car on the inside of the facility so after waiting another 5-10 minutes, he gave me a car sitting right there in the inside garage. In all, the process of getting from the baggage area to sitting behind the driver's seat took about an hour and a half, not all of it due to E-Z rental and very little the fault of the staff but just a very weary experience. Not sure I would do it again unless I knew I had lots of time and wouldn't be bone tired.

Although we were not prepared for the long drive from the airport to the rental car location (15 minutes) it was easy once we arrived. The counter agent was friendly, offered reasonable add-ons and upgrades, and was not the least pushy. We rented a problem-free Rav4 (upgrade) with 31K miles for a 6-day trip to Sonoma. Upon our return we were on our way back to the airport in the shuttle in less than 3 minutes. The airtrain was not working so our driver dropped us off at the terminal allowing us to avoid a mess at the SFO rental car return area. We sincerely appreciated the personal attention he showed us. All in all, it was a good value and customer service was above average.

No issues at all with this rental from Advantage. I requested an SUV, they gave me a Subaru Outback which was just perfect for getting through some rough weather. I would have preferred the tank be full instead of almost empty, but it just took a little more planning to bring it back like I got it. Drop-off was easy, just park it and walk away. No hassles, I would go here again.
