Pros: I liked the free upgrade from a Chevy spark to a Buick lacrosse.
Cons: I didn't like the fact when I went to refill the car with gas before dropping off the car, the gas cap door would not open on the car. I read the Manuel and googled instructions on how to open it and now it would open. The car rental return location was closed so I could not explain to them, I called the road side service but they where of no asstince. So now I'm stuck paying 6.99 a gallon for Hertz to refill it for me.

Best place to rent a vehicle
Pros: Renting a vehicle with Alamo was very simple and straightforward. I rented through the website and was able to easily compare rates. The Alamo agents were knowledgeable and so friendly! When I called to modify my reservation the day I was supposed to return the vehicle, the agent was helpful and quickly confirmed my changes. Alamo had a number of vehicles for me to choose from. The one I chose was clean and in great condition. I will never rent from anyone else! Thanks guys

I was mislead
Pros: I was put in a Payless Car - an affiliate of Budget and it was barely better than a lawn mower. It wa considered a mid-size, but wa about the size of a Cooper Mini. It made all sorts of noise and worried about its upkeep as we traveled thru a National Park. There was nothing good to say.
Cons: It was awful. I had to debate with the attendent about a price break.

Will have a good experience as long as you let the
Pros: We called the local number as soon as we found out that we missed our connection flight in Chicago. They gave us the option to pick up at the airport but had to add the airport fees to our original price that was given. But it saved us alot of headaches because of arriving at the airport late that day. It was much easier being able to drop the car off at the airport as well. Just a word of warning that if you get a car from an off site car rental place in Fargo, you may have to take a taxi to get to the car rental place. AND they close normally at 6 pm. So plan ahead to receive a better experience

Make sure you are renting from the right location!
Pros: The service was extremely friendly, upgraded us several categories for a nominal charge. The agent was super helpful in trying to save us the money on the airport surcharges.
Cons: I booked for Fargo, and it was the downtown location instead of the airport. The agent was super helpful and suggested Uber to get us to the right location and avoid the 18% surcharge that the airport had. However, that was convenient.

The rental car company was not located at the airport.
Pros: Nothing. I refused to rent a vehicle from them - I went to hertz.
Cons: The airport's rates were substantially higher than the out of airport location. Initially, I was told the airport would honor my quote, but then all of a sudden the representative said she could not get me a vehicle at the agreed upon rate. In my opinion, they colluded to avoid paying Kayak's reduced offfer

Customer service was good and not good at the same
Pros: The fellow at the airport offered to get the car for me, although that simply meant starting it as the lot is really close to the door.
Cons: There were two problems. One was simply uncomfortable, once accelerating up to 60 mph, the vehicle shook continuously (for 300 miles). Obviously it needed an alignment. There was also a lot of ice stuck behind the tires and elsewhere on the vehicle and it kept coming off in big chunks. This did not make for happy fellow motorists; one actually gave me the finger. The other problem was simply dangerous and foreseeable. The weather was a balmy -10 degrees which means someone cleaning the vehicle should pay attention to what they are doing. There was frost covering all the windows completely and it was impossible to get off because it was heavy and ON THE INSIDE. If you have ever tried to scrap the inside of the car window, you would understand. I have lived in the north country for 50 years, driving for 35, and Never have I had frost build up on the inside of a window. I couldn't see much at all on the drive home and spend 1/2 an hour the next morning trying to get enough visibility to drive in the daylight. I had to have the windows down until it got warm enough to start melting the frost and then there was water dripping down and it froze in big drops all over the windows. Finally, there was either no windshield wipe fluid or both nozzles were frozen and nobody bothered to check them and alleviate this problem. I am shocked at the situation all-around.

Pros: Good value for a nice car
Cons: Reserved a premium but when showed up they said it was reserved for Full size. I showed them reservation and they said they had to charge additional $10 per day. So we were misled by Kayak or Avis rep at counter.
