Terrible: I reserved a car and there were no cars!
Pros: Nothing

Car Rental in the Dominican Republic
Pros: We had a few problems with Alamo but Rosario Rodríguez looked after everything for us. She saved the rental experience with Alamo.
Cons: There is a mandatory insurance in the Dominican Republic you must pay which is very expensive. Kayak does not tell you about it when you reserve your car which is very wrong !!!!!!.This insurance us very expensive !!!!!

Rates were double my reservation...
Pros: Nothing
Cons: My rate for a rental in DR was surprisingly affordable when I booked online. I went ahead and purchased the insurance made available during booking. When I arrived at the rental counter, additional insurance was required with the rental, regardless of the policy I'd purchased (mistakenly believing it was part of Alamo's a la carte options). So I had a useless insurance policy and the required Alamo insurance more than doubled the online quote. Bastards.

My flight was delayed. Alamo closed and I left without transportation.
Cons: My flight was delayed. Alamo was aware of my flight number because it was notified by reservation and they are at the airport. Alamo closed and I left without transportation at the airport. I will never book again. I had a bad time and I was distressed to stay without transportation in a country that did not know anyone. I had to settle with another company.

Bait & Switch
Pros: Because Europcar didn't have the same car I reserved, they gave me a similar one that may have been an upgrade.

Good car doesn't make up for insurance scam and poor customer service
Pros: We had a Ford Explorer SUV that was able to fit our big group and was clean, drove perfectly, it would have been a 5 star review had there not been poor service with Europcar and the insurance scam they pulled on us
Cons: I rented a SUV from Europcar through carrentals.com I purchased the insurance package through car rentals and when I go to Punta Cana they told me that for the SUV I cannot have the insurance I bought, I must purchase Europcar's insurance package. They also said that they DID NOT have it in writing as to where that actual company policy exists. They also did not have any paperwork that showed the different insurance packages. It seemed very sketchy and when I asked if there was a supervisor to speak to the guy said he was the supervisor. My rental went from being $375 to almost $700 with the little insurance scam. I emailed Europcar's customer service the day it happened, after my 7 day trip I still had not heard anything and still two weeks later have not heard from them.

Pros: There is not much I liked. Very disappointed

Best deal in Punta Cana
Pros: Was cheapest deal at the airport rentals. Would rent again here

Labguage, Insurance and other issues
Pros: First, if an interpreter who is Dominican had not accompanied me to the counter, this rental agreement could not be executed. The Budget representative's English was poor. Also, The Budget representative would not accept that I have rental car insurance coverage. I would not be allowed to rent a vehicle with out taking out additional insurance . Then the price for the coverage was negotiated with the help of my interpreter. I was asked to sign a blank credit card slip and a full text page written in Spanish. I refused to sign both. All of this occurred on the pick up. The return had its own set of challenges. The experience makes me question renting a vehicle with Budget, through Kayak and/or in Punta Cana again.

5 Feb 2017
Pros: Car was clean. People helpful.
Cons: That the hidden costs actually result in that the great deal found in internet came out to twice the cost I expected. I have never found the difference to be so huge having rented vehicles in many countries. You need to give clients a more realistic total. It is a very negative surprise to find what the cost really is when you are picking up the car, and you feel helpless to find and alternative solution. You have no alternative but to pay what they want.

Dominican Republic must purchase additional insurance.
Pros: Going off the path.
Cons: The insurance is high, and you have no choice but to get it. FYI Get it because traffic laws are not enforced it's chaos.

Worst experience ever
Pros: Like how easy it was to dropped off.
Cons: I was given one price online and at the counter I had additional charges that no one could assist me with. I had to paid an additional $60 for dropping it off at the same location I had reserved it for but was told that it was not included in the price of reservation, I was force to use their insurance for an additional $20 otherwise they would not release the car even though I had my own insurance.

Never Again
Pros: The young man was courteous and tried to be as helpful as possible.
Cons: The price they wanted to charge me was not the price I made the reservation for. They have additional fees for insurance which are mandatory, not optional as the website indicated. In addition to the mandatory minimum coverage, if I chose to not put the full coverage they wanted to have a $4000 hold on my credit card. Absolutely ridiculous. In the end after all the headache when the young man called for my vehicle to be given to me it turns out the vehicle was NOT available nor did they have any others. Horrible experience. Never again.

Not American Standards and Extra Charges - Punta C
Pros: Car was fairly new and clean. Upon return rep drove us to our terminal in the car and helped us manage our luggage.
Cons: There were surprise extra charges and they insisted on putting a $1500 hold on my credit card because I declined their insurance. The car was smaller than what I reserved and there were no other options so we squeezed in and didn't have a very safe situation. There were several stickers partially removed from the windshield that obstructed the view.

The car served us adiquately for the week.
Pros: The car drove nice, but was a stiff ride in the back seat for two adults. We were able to get four adult and 6+ bags. The air conditioning worked well. It had enough power to manuver when needed.
Cons: The Hyundai Accent is a small "Full size" car. Very short leg space in the back seat. The outside of the car was clean enough, but the inside of the windshield was very bad. Refracted the sunlight to the point we had to stop and find water and towels to scrub the inside clean. I expected the required liablity insurance to be extra, but the required ups and extras almost doubled the original quoted cost. I was very nervious driving, fearing someone might hit me and we were warned of the consequences.

Pros: NOTHING
Cons: I have rented cars for a little over 10 years now and this was the worst car experience. I rented a car in Punta cana for 13 days and when I got there around 2 pm when I go to pick my car up there wasn't any available. Not even that, before I left for my trip I confirmed it and they told me my car was available. Don't know how that works?? And to end the story short they triple the price? Worst car rental in the caribbean!!!! DONT RENT THRIFTY IN PUNTA CANA.

BEWARE. Reservations do not matter
Pros: Reservation made sept 2016 for the ONLY vacation I get all year at Christmas. Confirmed six times - even before leaving LAX! Arrived and was told "sorry lady we have no cars". Without all the horrible details here's a f ew: - 3.5 hours begging/crying at counter they did not care although my reservation was acknowledged. - Christmas day, traveling solo and disabled, they did not care. - Supervisor got on phone, he did not care. - I had nowhere to go and NO transportation. - 3.5 hours later "we found a car it will be $800" THIEVES AND LIARS. I witnessed FIVE other renters on either side of the Thrifty rental counter told the same thing.
Cons: Learned from MANY locals, "they do it all the time". - my reservation was for 16 days $300. I would NEVER give that country one dime out of my own pocket although the USA has given them HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars to rebuild. Their culture is deplorable. They need to be delivered from the rampant "deception with a smile."

By far the worst experience I've had with Hertz
Pros: The car was large enough to fit 3 people and all the luggage comfortably.
Cons: I was given a price of $202 when I rented the car.I spoke to a Hertz Club Gold booking agent and they confirmed the price. Once I arrived at the Punta Cana airport: 1.) We waited over 45 minutes for someone to help us. There was nobody at the counter for 30 minutes. Then someone was who was helping another customer walked up, completely ignoring us. She was extremely slow and looked very inexperienced. Another Hertz representative showed up about 15-20 minutes later. 2.) The representative that helped us said that the price we received from the Hertz Club Gold member was just to reserve the car and the price of the car is actually more. I showed him my email receipt and he still said that's not what it shows on his screen. After that, he started adding all of these additional charges including insurance, gas option and a 28% tax. I told him I wanted to decline the insurance and gas options and he said that I could not an that I had to because it's a law in the Dominican Republic.I told him that none of this was ever communicated to me and I would have changed my travel plans to not use a rental car if I knew this was the case. I was stuck at this point and needed to pay for the car which now has cost me around $300 additional to the $202 I originally reserved. 3.) The car I was given was in terrible shape. Not only were there dents on the exterior but the inside was dirty and there were stains all over the seats. The driver side floor mat was not meant for the car. It partially covered the gas pedal and made it dangerous to drive. on top of all of this, the tires were bald and the car slide many times when I was braking. I have pictures of the dents in the exterior, floor mat and tires as proof. Additionally, I was only given the key to the car and not given the keyless entry module. This was absolutely the worst experience I've ever had renting a car and I was expecting much better service and vehicle since I was renting through Hertz. Also, the website and Hertz Club Gold representative should have explained the insurance and tax scams before renting the car. I will not be using Hertz in the future due to this experience.

We'vw been cheated, they didn't rent us any car.
Pros: I would be capable to disband Kayak from the Internet.
Cons: They promised us to bring the car in Bavaro although, in the very first day they invited us in Punta Cana Aiport. After we made more than 5 phone calls, on European roaming, calls consisting of: wait a second, wait a second, and we were discussing with many, many operators, calling us on Terminal A, afterwards on Terminal B, and again on A and B, we found out that they didn't even have the car we ordered. We had to pay 70 USD taxi, round trip and also 282 USD insurance for no car. It was a disaster that destroyed our holiday. It's a huge mistake to have them as your franchisors. They don't speak English, it's a huge waiting time, no car, and the services are a disaster!

Horrible rental company
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Bait and switch on prices. My rental before arrival was around 270 dollars and at the airport it turned into 597 dollars. Apperantly they do not accept the rental insurance I have bought thru Kayak (which Kayak recommended) so I was forced to buy their insurance which turned out to be more than the rental itself. Horrible rental company and I am not happy with Kayak that offered me insurance. So pretty much I got screwed. Never again am I booking rentals thru a website.

0 stars because they didn't have a vehicle for us
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: The fact that when we arrived they had no vehicles. Literally none and did not even try to help us find one. And we arrived ahead of our scheduled pick-up time to be safe. Horrible customer service and horrible company. Not what one wants to deal with when they arrive to a foreign country. Unacceptable.

Ace does not exist
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: The car rental is actually called nelly. They made us buy insurance, twice, or put $1k deposit down. They charged me $17 for being less then 2 gallons of gas short on return and made me go to terminal pick up to sign off on the extra charge. Such a terrible experience.

Didn't honor reservation
Cons: Rented with Ace at Punta Cana, DR. When I arrived at the desk they stated they had no vehicles and that I should cancel my reservation and rent elsewhere. What's the point of a reservation if there is nothing available for me to use??

TERRIBLE - DO NOT BOOK
Cons: Arrived at airport and there were no cars. Attendant said she would call and deliver a car to the hotel next day. Still no car, called everyday and still no car until day 5 of trip and then offered a compact (not suitable for 4 adults and baggage) and asked to come to airport to collects. Lies, bad service, awful company. Also price listed is wrong - highly inflated insurance costs on pickup.

Be Warned
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Got to car rental counter only to be told that they had no cars available and none of the other car rental companies had cars. We had to get a taxi to our destination and 2 days later we were able to secure a car from Budget but at 5 times the cost of our initial reservation with Payless.

Top tips for renting a car in Punta Cana

  • Explore the very eastern tip of the Dominican Republic on your own four wheels and rent a car for your time in Punta Cana. With beautiful beaches and the inland stretching out seemingly infinitely, a car is definitely a must to get from A to B in this region. Make the most of your holiday and reach any beach with its wonderfully clear blue water or a stunning golf course conveniently and in comfort.
  • Punta Cana International Airport is plopped amidst the region’s heart and is only a few minutes from many popular destinations. Various car rental agencies are situated at the airport, including companies like Thrifty, Avis, and Hertz. This remote corner of the world will most likely require visitors to have their own wheels if they do not want to be dependent on taxis. By car, it will take a maximum of half an hour to get to the northern side of the region, where most hotels are located.
  • Driving in Punta Cana can be a bit of a challenge for first-time visitors, as many street regulations appear to be considered suggestions rather than rules. Motorcycles are also a common sight and they can whizz around a corner and be difficult to see coming. Driving defensively is the number one rule when coming to Punta Cana, but when doing so, there is nothing that can stop you from exploring all the beauty this region has to offer.
  • Compared to major cities, rush hour in Punta Cana is comparably tame, but from 8 to 10 am and 6 to 9 pm, roads can face increased traffic as well. During the summer, traffic also increases as tourists flock into the region to enjoy the sun, white beaches, and crystal clear water. Especially around the coastline, traffic jams can occur in the peak season.
  • Book your rental car in Punta Cana at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
