Cons:

I was able to reserve online, but the location I reserved at was closed with no signs indicating where I should go. I asked a parking lot attendant nearby and he directed me Towards another car rental lot nearby for a different company. There were no signs outside that the new place was where I could get my car, but it was.

I actually did not rent this car. I canceled the reservation with Hertz a few weeks ago. Kayak was never updated apparently. I actually contacted both kayak and hertz in the cancellation process, because despite canceling weeks in advance, I was charged $50 by hertz for the reservation. Their policy was confusing, and I was surprised and disappointed to be charged. I have no complaints with kayak, but was dissatisfied with this hertz experience.

Worst experience ive ever had at a car rental company. 1st car they gave me had a suspension problem and I had to bring it back. When I returned it and got another, someone put gum on the seat and I therefore sat in gum for the next 5 hrs of my drive.

Cons:

We ran into some hiccups... We didn’t know there wasn’t a shuttle from Oakland Airport to San Francisco Enterprise. There was seven of us, with all of our luggage, so taking a cab wasn’t an option. The over the phone customer service wasn’t much help, unless we were willing to rent a different vehicle from Oakland for twice our original quote. So, we decided to shuttle to the Oakland rental agencies. There we got help from a wonderful lady at Enterprise, who rented us a van for the same original quote, and gave us a brand new van with only six miles on it. So, the day started out chaotic, but everything turned out well.

KAYAK

Pros:

Everything but the child seats

Cons:

Car seats were really bad value for $13/day per piece (we needed 2). They were the cheapest possible seats, it would have been cheaper to just buy them. There was no good solution for a 42lb kid - too young for a booster seat, too big for the car seat. We had to shoehorn her into the available seat. Pickup of the car was good, but the person in charge of car seats was rude and seemed annoyed by my request to see available seats.

Cons:

It's my own fault for not investigating closer, but I was under the impression that my San Francisco rental would be picked up at the airport. When I arrived at said airport with my husband, two kids, 4 suitcases, 4 backpacks, and 2 car seats, I was informed by a rude National employee that my rental was to be picked up at the train station, which was at least 30 minutes away, and she could do nothing to help me. I ended up renting a car from Alamo by calling and reserving a car on the spot. I am unlikely to use Kayak again.

Not sure what happened, I was told I had to go to an off site location in San Francisco vs the airport location. Why would I do that as my return flight was hours before the off airport location would open. Canceled the reservation booked with a vendor at airport

Cons:

I got a call 2 days before the rental to remind me. The reservationist said I was to pick the car up on Mission St in SF and I was sure it was at SFO. She said the Mission shop would be closed before I got there. I asked how much to switch to SFO and she gave me a rate of $2800, triple the original quote. Told her to cancel and ended up making other arrangements. After cancelling I looked at my reservation and it WAS a SFO pick up. Had I not gotten that call I would have completed my original reservation. Somebody at Sixt screwed up and cost me a lot of grief and money.

Sep 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Based on the entire experience both during and after rental, nothing at all to like.

Cons:

DO NOT TRUST THEIR STAFF OR VEHICLES OR CUSTOMER SERVICE AFTERWARDS!!!!! Upon check-in, I was advised the SUV I booked was not suitable for Tahoe winter (shouldn't all SUVs be winter-ready?!) so forced to pay double original booked total for a different SUV. That vehicle was NOT equipped for Tahoe winter - faulty frozen wiper fluid, bad windshield wipers, engine light on, brake noise on day 1,2! Wasted Hours on multiple days on addressing vehicle faults, and yet was not given even 1 hour extra to return the car on final day. I have spent 8 MONTHS trying to get reimbursed for the upsell charges I paid despite being given a vehicle that could not perform any better than original SUV booked at significantly lower rate. DO NOT RENT HERE because if there are issues you will not find ANY way to contact SIXT to get issues addressed. Every option by phone or website leads to literally no person or error messages on their website. Only when I finally gave them bad review on Yelp, months later, did someone reach out to me and tell me to email them and even then I had to follow up 2 times to get a response. STILL NO RESOLUTION after 8 months. I think they want you to eventually give up so they can keep your $. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER.
