Horrible experience
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Took over an hour to receive the car seat. Car ended up having a bent axel because rear tire had extreme uneven wear. Customer service is pretty much nonexistent. They tell you to call the place where you rented it from, but they never picked up(over 2hours) and the mailbox was full. Had to switch out cars and it was a really big pain. I was in another city but to even get it approved was extremely hard. Bad experience. The deposit is as much as your rental cost, which is crazy as most places just charge $50 for deposit then bill you at the end. They set a pending charge of double my rental cost.

Got tot he airport and they wanted me to wait 2 ho
Pros: Nothing. Will never use again.
Cons: Had a reservation but when I get there they said that they were out of cars and I would have to wait 2 hours as the girl behind the counter just laughed as she said it. I went somewhere else and will never use them again.

Memphis Airport
Pros: Nothing
Cons: That was the worse experience I have ever had. We waited in line for 45 minutes with one person ahead of us. We were told the system was down and the "one" girl that was working was new and she couldn't get anyone to help. So we went to Thrifty car rental and they were very accommodating and nice. So I will never use Payless again!!!!

Cons: There was only person at the check-out counter. When I returned the car, the system was down and I never received a final receipt. Now I am trying to find out why my credit card was charged $144 more than it should have been and I'm getting nowhere. No one even answers the number given for the local office. The whole experience was disastrous!

Horrible 1st time experience
Cons: The rental agent at the counter in Atlanta was rude and only cared about regurgitating the policy and could care less that I'd had a traumatic experience. I was on a business trip and had a blow out, and when I went to exchange the car to make it back home to the Memphis area, I had the worst customer experience in my 41 years of life at the Payless counter by the supervisor Lisa. She wouldn't even give me her last name! I will NEVER use this company again nor will I be using AVIS either because they are the parent company. I went to Alamo after this ordeal and they got me on the road again in minutes.

Car wasn't ready, didn't get what we reserved
Pros: Location was convenient and a nice office. The staff were very polite, however they were not immediately helpful when our car was not ready.
Cons: The car we reserved was not available due to the fact that it was Labor Day weekend and the volume of rentals. The Enterprise staff assured us that 1 or 2 people who were returning a compact car at the same time of our rental would be arriving, but those renters didn't arrive on time so we were waiting around until Enterprise made a judgment call to give us an upgrade to an SUV. This seems like a solid solution but the SUV smelled terrible of smoke so we immediately had to take it to CVS for Febreeze and leave the windows open for a day or two to try and clean the car.

12 Nov 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: I was not aware I needed my insurance card. It was not required at other car rentals. It took time to contact my insurance company to get the information. The biggest issue was the car was not cleaned. There were food crumbs all over the dash and console, windows dirty, etc. THE SMOKE SMELL WAS TERRIBLE.When I brought it back 5 days later it still stank.

The Enterprise employees closed up early
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: The Enterprise desk decided to close-up early and the rental desk that was supposed to cover for them was useless. Basically, that guy told us to go to the rental desk upstairs for service, but everyone had gone home up there too. It was just before midnight when all of this was happening and fortunately the Avis employees were still there because they hooked us up. Based on this experience I would never recommend renting with Enterprise and especially not out of the Memphis airport.

Very Convenient
Pros: The rental process through Enterprise in Memphis is exceptionally quick and well organized. People are friendly, professional. From the moment you get to the check in through the drop off, everything is completely hassle free.

Quick, easy and on my way
Pros: Quick, good value and no delays. Staff behind counter didn't hold me up trying to sell me on everything from insurance coverage to upgrades to gas plans. I told them up front what I wanted and nothing more and she processed me without making me go through the Q&A. Return of vehicle was a non-event as well. Thanks!

1 Jan 2016
Pros: The car was clean and the drop off was pretty simple.
Cons: Pickup was a hassle and took much longer than it should have. After flying all day, we just wanted to quickly get our car and get to our family, but the pickup agent made sure none of that was easy. The guy was trying to nickel and dime us with every feature and upgrade, and when he gave us prices he never mentioned that any of the prices he was giving us were per day. He'd say stuff like "it's only $4.99 for tire coverage." I just felt like he was being purposefully vague to mislead us. He also wouldn't let my fiancé pay with her card without us adding her as a driver since the car was under my name. All in all my experience with the pickup ruined my overall experience. I won't rent from Alamo again.
4.4 OK
15 Feb 2016
Cons: The staff were very rude and unhelpful at the Memphis airport. They said we could not pay except with a major bank card which I had. However, they would not accept it because they said they could not run a debit as a credit card. Luckily, I had another credit card on me, but then they insisted on breaking the rental down into two separate transactions as we were renting Saturday-Monday but returning the car in New Orleans. They said we could return on Monday and renew the rental for one day, returning to New Orleans Alamo by 7PM Monday night. However, when we returned on Monday, they refused to do so as we were considered a "walk-up" despite having a rental already. The staff made us leave, get on the internet, and make an additional reservation before they would fulfill our order. We also had to change cars for no apparent reason. Nothing was explained to us and the staff members were rude and unhelpful overall.

No Cars Available During Pickup - Long Wait
Pros: Very nice clean, comfortable car. Price was reasonable.
Cons: Long line for car pickup, only one agent working. Received key and was told to go outside to pick up the car, there were no cars outside. Waited almost an hour for a car. Both of these delayed our trip considerably.

Ugh
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything. Used kayak to reserve a Thrifty car and, again, it ended up in the Thrifty system for the wrong day. 4th time that has happened.. That's a kayak.com issue Thrifty wanted 500 more dollars to do a walk up rental. Got on the kayak app, made a reservation with budget (the due was correct thisbtime) while standing outside their door. When I walked up to the desk, they said I would have to wait an hour for the system to update. Really???? Asked if they would match the price on my confirmation email as a walk up. They said no. Walked to the avis counter 4 feet away and asked if they would price match the price on my email and 15 mins later I was driving out of the gate. Thrifty and budget, you have some stupid customer service agents. You let 450 dollars walk right out the front door. Dumb dumb dumb business.

Went back to the counter and was told it would be at least another hour before any would be available. Systems should do a better job of communicating.

KAYAK and AVIS drop the ball.
Cons: We reserved a mini van around 10 days prior to pickup. We received a phone call the day before asking if we had to have a mini van, if we would want a Ford Explorer instead. I said "no", we needed a minivan. We arrived at 8:30 the next morning, to start our family vacation by renting the minivan, and there was no minivan. The Avis employee said that there had been a glitch on KAYAK and on AVIS website that quoted a lower price on the minivans, therefore causing them all to be rented. There was no minivan there, even though they called me the night before asking me if I wanted something different, and I told them no. They again asked if I wanted an Explorer, and I told them "no" again. They didn't even have an Explorer on site to rent. After waiting for 20 minutes, nothing happened. No minivan, no Explorer, nothing. I called ENTERPRISE and reserved an minivan over the phone, which was DOUBLE the rate that KAYAK/AVIS quoted me, but it was available immediately. I still have received no explanation from KAYAK or AVIS. Probably wont use either of these companies again.

Was Skeptical, but it went great!
Pros: I read some reviews that made me nervous I was going to have a hard time, but it ended up being a good choice for me. I picked up my car in Memphis, and returned it after driving to Nashville. In both places, I found friendly staff, short lines, enough cars to choose from, car was in great condition and very clean, and a super easy return process. And all for a really great price.
Cons: nothing - my experience went very smoothly.

I was told that a receipt for fuel purchase was necessary for drop off, but since I bought fuel at a pay-at-pump station that was closed on the holiday, I did not get a receipt for fuel purchase. I hope I do not get charged for fuel. Will no longer rent from Hertz.

Great Rental, a few notes.
Pros: Good Service, the only thing that was a headache was that the option for pickup times was not available on Kayak, neither was the option for me to put down a "driver's name" so I had to pick it up myself. Also, I had to add insurance when I arrived so it ended up being just as much as not going through a "promotional service" overall it was great but I'd like to be able to add insurance and specify pickup times within Kayak's platform so I wouldn't have to call Hertz.

29 Nov 2016
Pros: Rented a Nissan Versa, it was easy to drive and park and very new and clean. I declined the insurance despite the clerk trying to make it look like I have to choose one of their three options. Most any credit card provides collision insurance which covers your deductible on your personal auto policy. I dislike the fear tactic used to sell extra insurance to people who a stressed while traveling. Cost of the rental came to $138 for two full days, ended up returning five hours early.
Cons: I didn't want to but the full tank but they charged me for it anyway. I only used half. Pay per gallon for them to refuel is $9 per gallon! Fuel is only $2 per gallon in Memphis. I did not want to have to refuel right before returning due to time constraints. There is a huge premium for renting at the airport.

Excellent Hertz experience
Pros: Value: Had the best value for the 10 days I needed it. I arrived about an hour early to pick the car up. It was not cleaned, but I took it anyway to get on the road early. Car performed well during the trip and was an easy drop-off experience. I think the value I gained was because this rental was associated with a collision repair shop. Hertz is generally more expensive if you go to one of their agencies.
Cons: Nothing stands out
