I booked the car with Kayak and they allowed me to book it at a rental location that closes at 5pm, when my flight arrived at 5pm. Therefore, I missed the pickup, and when I went to get it the next day the price was twice as much as the original.

Rented a car with two patches in the tire. One let loose less than 40 miles down the highway. Luckily we were not in the desert driving when it happened. Roadside assistance sent us to a “more local” branch to swap out the vehicle and that branch had no clue we were coming. Total mess and I’m not stoked.

Pros:

Nothing, it was prepaid and they charged me extra on my card without my knowledge. I have confirmed a couple of time while returning the car and they mentioned I don't owe anything since everything is pre paid

Pros:

Gas in the vehicle was not the same as the amount on the receipt. Merchant said he would change up and never did. Bluetooth didn't work. USB port didn't work. Car was extremely dirty and hadn't clearly been clean in a while.

Cons:

Basically everything. Way overpriced, dirty car, didn't work, not a great vehicle and gross.

It was the fastest I was in and out of a rental office. The individual working at the drop off in Palm Springs was really nice. I can't tell you how disappointed I was that the type of car I reserved was not there since I made the reservation ahead of time.

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

Offer wasn’t clear location did not include transportation from to airport, so had to eat that cost separately obliterating any savings discount. Also access to parking garage failed and office did not open at posted start time so had no help to drop off after sneaking into garage on piggyback of a condo resident, then had to park in avis shuttle slot since avis section of garage was locked closed by a chained gate.

Cons:

Car wasn’t cleaned and had no gas. Agent kept us waiting for an hour and a half, never generated correct rental wffeement, we were billed for $233 tank of gas which we did not use.

Cons:

Got to San Diego airport to get our car we pre rented. They said that the reservation was for down town. There was no easy way to get to the down town location. I only requested airport locations. You did not make that clear on the location. We had to pay $55 more than you quoted. Very Frustrated and disappointing. Not a good way to start a vacation. Howard

KAYAK

Pros:

Without a choice or notification, Kayak decided to provide a rental car off campus from the airport my family was flying into. After an Uber ride to the downtown location separate from the airport location and shuttle services we obtained our car. If it wasn't for an unseasonable downpour my family wouldn't be so sour or wet from this inconvenience. Fare warning to package offers from Kayak. Make sure you know the airport address before taking the deal. Enterprise rentals made it right by the inconvenience of the services of Kayak by waiving the return of the car to a different location on our departure.

Oct 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Top-down motoring. Great service at the F St location.

Cons:

Outward visibility is seriously limited with the top up, which it was most of the time because SD was suffering through a nasty heat wave. It's a very large car in a city of very narrow parking places. Combine that with long doors, and you have a recipe for difficult ingress/egress.

KAYAK

Pros:

When we got to the hotel to pick up our rental car we were told they had no cars and we would have to make other arrangements. We saw 4 other families being told the same thing. Wow. They did not help us in anyway. I would never renting a car using priceline again. It was a scam.

Cons:

When a customer rents a car, make sure you have a car for them to rent. Scamming deals on priceline is false advertising.

Pros:

Pick up and drop off was easy. Car was a 2019.

Cons:

No way a Toyota ch-r should qualify as an SUV. Would have been more room in a regular car

6.8 Okay

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff person who assisted with the rental was very friendly and personable, and apologized for the amount of time the transaction took.

Cons:

Took too long to pick up the rental. There was one person ahead, and apparently issues with the second computer at the rental booth. I was given instructions to find the general whereabouts of the car in the hotel parking garage, but not escorted and no walk-around to check for previous damage.

I was not aware that there was a $200 hold in order to receive the rental when I booked online.

Cons:

San Diego location is a pain to drop off at. You have to drive all the way to the top level of a hotel parking garage, then take the elevator down and go into the hotel lobby to find their desk. There’s no signage directing you where to go.
