I like all Alamo scope, the car, the service, the price, etc everything was super. What I did not like and rated overall experience low: our pickup was ordeed to downtown New York. The confirmed date was 1st Jan. I luckily called Alamo the day before just double check car availability. And they just told me that they are CLOSED the next day (although they see the valid confirmation in the system-but definately I can not pick it up). So asked them to hand over the day before and they were flexible to do it. If I would not call them, then we should seek for a car rental 1st Jan after realizing that the handover pick up point is closed. And Alamo also mentioned that this is a usual desconnect between their and other’s systems, so I suggest to make a better connection between systems.

After renting vehicles with all the major brands over many decades Alamo is the absolute worst. A toxic combination of cluelessness and unresponsiveness. Do yourself a favor - rent elsewhere.

Vehicle pick-up was easy. The agent welcomed us and helped me choose a vehicle appropriate for our needs. The only negative is that the vehicle was not cleaned inside and out. The glove compartment contained articles from the previous renter and there were crumbs all over the gear shift and on the floors. The interior was not vacuumed nor was the exterior cleaned. A bit disappointed, but due to the pandemic and staffing shortages, understandable.

The car was disgusting upon pickup. The car was full of damage, the interior was horrific, full of hair, melted candy and dirt. The tire pressure was low, and the windshield washer fluid was on borderline low. As well, now I’m being charged a final fee that is almost 3x the initial amount that I had originally agreed to. Had this final price been known to me, I never would have agreed to book this car. I am also being charged for 2 days when I only used the car one day. I will NEVER book with Sixt ever again and I refuse to be taken advantage of and robbed. This is highway robbery and I demand to be compensated, especially since the car I received was completely disgusting.

I didn’t even rent the car. I showed up at 1 pm to get to a wedding by 4:30 that’s an hour away. Any other company I’d have plenty of time. The line was 40+ people out the door. I waited for 30 minutes and the line barely moved. I ended up walking over to Hertz and getting a car from them. I think Kayak or Payless overbooked irresponsibly and I lost out on money because of it.

I booked my Thrifty rental car two months ahead of time. I woke up at 4 AM to commute via public transportation to JFK in order to make my scheduled 6 AM pickup time. The staff were incredibly rude to all customers and stated that they were not going to be renting out any cars until at least 7 AM. By the time 7 AM rolled around, they had allowed many customers ahead of the individuals that arrived at 6 AM. There is no seating outside of the lobby or in the lobby so customers waiting for the staff to be ready were forced to sit on the concrete outside in December. My car reeked of cigarette smoke and had not been vacuumed prior to me being "handed" the keys. In fact, I was told to go wait at the end of the sidewalk for someone to hand me the keys but no one arrived so I went searching myself in the parking lot to find the car. I cross-referenced my receipt and the license plate then waited in the car just in case someone was coming to get me. No one did so I left. My only complaint after driving my dirty and smelly car off the lot was that the passenger's side air controls had gotten so hot at some point prior to me renting it. I could not figure out how to manipulate the air for my husband as the knob had melted off and fallen behind the vent. I extended my rental by a week so I have yet to do the dropoff portion but I am crossing my fingers that it is not as difficult as the pickup.

I had to wait in a line for over an hour to learn that I could have just left. Poor communication and poor checkup on the car before use. I do not recommend.

The staff was friendly. However, I returned my car a few minutes after the deadline — 7:09 instead of 7:00. When I pulled in, the rental place was closed; there was only a security guard working there. I said to the security guard that I was disappointed not to have made it back by 7:00. She said, it’s not a problem, returns are allowed until 9:00. I thought, great, in that case I have time to go to the nearest gas station, so I can return it with a full tank of gas. When I received the bill the following day, I had been charged for an entire day, so the bill was about $250 or $300 more than I had expected. It seems silly to me, since the office was already closed and this they *clearly* were not going to rent the car to anyone else until at least the following morning.

At checkout they asked if I wanted ez pass. I asked if there was an extra charge other than paying tolls. They said no. Then on my final bill I was charged $22.50 PER DAY for the EZ pass.

Pick up and drop off was indeed super easy.I normally don't opt for prepaid fuel but when the question of prepaid fuel came up I said that would be convenient since I didn't know of a gas station nearby (I have never rented a car from JFK Airport before).

Ace is trying to file a claim for a scratch on the vehicle that existed at pickup, and is persisting despite the clear photo I took of it at pickup. They were doing this to everyone in the return line ahead of me, too. They nickel-and-dime at every turn - there's a $6.95 a day 'transponder fee' for taking EZ-Pass toll roads (that's plus the tolls, which are expected) and they're strict about the dropoff time in a way I haven't found with any other car rental company I've used before, ever. They're also at an inconvenient location far away from JFK or the AirTrain - it's roughly a mile-long walk from the nearest Q10 bus station through a very rough neighborhood with very few people out on the street. It's nowhere near a subway station, that's the closest public transportation to or from there. I would not recommend Ace.

We picked up our vehicle at JFK on 9/4 late in the evening and dropped off our vehicle back at JFK on 9/6 early in the morning and every single staff member was kind and helpful. I wish I would’ve asked their names to include in this review. Great customer service and extremely friendly staff members!

No gps on board, return drop off adress on bill different from drop off location at the airport. Could have been better.

I just checked my bank account and I got charged $658.56 for my car rental. It should've been $408.56. Please correct this amount ASAP otherwise I will dispute the charge with Chase.

The staff was super helpful and friendly. One of the best experiences I've had picking up a car in NYC.I wish the tank was full when I picked it up. It's a bit more complex to return a tank at 5/8 than to return one that is full.

Top tips for hiring a car in New York

  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in New York City is that it makes the outlying boroughs much more accessible. For instance, places like Rockaway Beach in Queens, Red Hook in Brooklyn, and City Island in the Bronx are all much easier to reach via car than by public transportation.
  • For travelers with flights landing at LaGuardia Airport, all hire shuttles pick up and drop off from in front of Terminal A of the airport. As for JFK International Airport, hire car desks can be found on the Arrivals level of each terminal. At Newark International Airport, the car hire desks are found in Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain.
  • Rush hour is an undeniable part of life in New York City. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be mitigated. Typically morning the busy morning traffic lasts from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., while the afternoon and evening traffic is usually from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Drivers should take care, though, that those are the busiest times, but often rush hour can start even earlier in the morning and last even later at night. Some of the main areas to avoid during rush hour include the Lincoln Tunnel and the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Biking is very popular in New York City and drivers should remain careful and aware of the bikers around them. Make sure to always check your mirrors when turning right and when opening a door, as you never know when a biker could pop up behind you.
