They should provide what we booked. I booked a large suv and they only had a small sedan available when I reached.

I didn't know that Economy was located outside of the normal rental car center at San Diego Airport. The information was not evident in the confirmation email from Kayak. We took a shuttle from the airport to the rental car center only to find out we needed to go to another location to get our car. We had to take an Uber there afterwards. We were traveling with two small children so this process was stressful.

It should be noted that this facility is not at the main pick up for car rentals. With 2 children and heavy car seats the 2 stops to get there were hard plus we had to pay to return car the location closed way before our flight back home. P

Jackie took care of me and got me into my car quickly with an assist from Fernando who helped from home on his day off. The car was clean and in perfect condition. That's the kind of service I've grown accustomed to from Economy. They work hard to provide great service. Thanks huys.

There was an unnoticed clause that said I couldn't get a refund, so when a snowstorm changed flights, I had to pay for the car even though I wasn't in San Diego to drive it. I don't think I'll use Kayak again.

Airport transportation (in both directions) was very quick and efficient. Will definitely use Economy again.

Pros:

It was a fairly simple process.

Cons:

I called the day before we picked up our rental and the quoted price was $146. When we arrived, they told us our car rental was going to cost closer to $400. I was displeased but we needed a car as we were on vacation. So if you are considering utilizing ACE, beware that the quoted price is way below what you will actually pay.

Cons:

Wasn't even able to rent the vehicle due to me living in san diego and wanting to rent it to go to las vegas and back couldn't take it out of state, but if I wasn't from here I was told i could rent the car and take it wherever I wanted. Won't be renting from them! You want a great rental car place go with Enterprise, have nothing but rave reviews for them and was able to rent within ours of being told no from Ace!

KAYAK

Pros:

Absolutely nothing I’m very unhappy with this rental

Cons:

When I arrived to pick up my vehicle there was one employee working the desk, with quite a long line to even talk to a worker. Once I got inside the employee asked for my ID and credit card. I was then told the car I requested had not been available for about a year. He then tried to offer me a SUV priced at $412 compared to the $249 I was quoted. I had to leave the building to consult with my party only to have to wait about another 20 mins outside . Once I get to the counter for the second time the clerk then informed me of the under 25 clause and then it was going to be another $114 on top of the $412. I believe this to be highly unprofessional and requested a refund for the insurance. The employee said he could do that. I then called Priceline who I did my insurance through and was laughed at and hung up on. I called back and was told that I could expect a refund in 3-7 business days for the $88 I paid for for the insurance due to the car not being available. It’s been 7 days however and I still have not received the $88. This rental was felt with extremely unprofessionally. I’m highly disappointed.

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.

NU over charged me and said they would fix it when i returned the car. I asked for a receipt and they wouldn't give me one, said it would be emailed but i never got it. They owe me $40.82. when i called, the phone rang and rang. There is no email address, no other way of contacting them.

My confirmation for returning the car said 10 am, I inputted 3 pm when I booked it, they would not extent the drop off time by 4 hours without charging me over $100 when I only paid 60 for the whole booking. So 160 for two days is unacceptable. I will be disputing the charge

Cons:

Booked a van pickup 5pm and drop off at same time 2 days later. The day off, 3 hours before pickup, I get a phone call from the location telling me I need to pickup an hour early because they decide to close at 4 “today”. Of fine. “Oh and also you need to drop off before 10am in 2 days because we will be closed at 10am”. “Or you can pay an extra $60 for late drop off”. What?? Late drop off would mean I extend pass my 24h, which I’m not!! If you decide to close early how does that become my problem?? Very disappointing.

Cons:

Booked a van for 2 days w/ 150 mile per day. Arrived at location to be told that policies “of this specific branch” have changed and are now 150 “per rental” (!!!??) Long story short it’s obvious Non sense. Worker at location didn’t show any compassion and on the phone corporate couldn’t do anything because “we are reservation center and customer center only works week days”. Customer service non existent, bummer for loyal and respectful customers like us but I guess that’s the way it goes now.

Cons:

Poor attitude. Had to wait for an hr and dealt with screw you attitude from the front desk. The place was dirty and shady. The van was old (60k + miles) and dirty. It was conveniently near the airport so that is a plus. Most of all is the lady at the front desk who was awful.

Pros:

The staff was friendly and helpful. The drop off was super easy. We had a terrific vehicle for the cost.

Cons:

Didn't love that we had to go to the transit center for rentals & from there take another van (that we had to call & wait for). Also, we had to return by 2 or be charged extra to return it later to a different location (it was a Sat)- those were the only downsides to an otherwise great experience.

Cons:

Pacific charged me twice as much as they estimated on Kayak. If that had been the extent of it, I may have left it alone. The day after I returned my car, however, the manager called to tell me that there is a "new scratch" on the front bumper. The car they rented to me was already scratched up, so I assumed he had gotten something confused and I could simply send the pictures I had snapped of the car before driving away from the lot. He sent me pictures of a car I'm not convinced is the car I rented, with a big scratch in the bumper, and asked that I have my lawyer call him. I have never felt so mistreated by a company. I'm certain that I had nothing to do with a scratch in the car I rented, and after consulting Yelp I noticed that Pacific has pulled this same stunt with at least one other customer. Do yourself a favor and stay far away.

Cons:

Car was old and had a lot of miles. It sounded as if it needed a tune up. Car had lots of scratches and dings. Didn't like that I had to catch a bus from the airport, a rental car center, then take another van to their rental place- added another layer of traveling around and loading/ unloading.
