While it's to Alamo's interest to get customers to buy more options/extras, it's ethically wrong to sneakily add the options to the reservation without consent.

      After having to wait for 2 buses to get to the off site rental office, we had to wait another 45 minutes at the rental car counter to get the car. Service at counter was EXTREMELY slow & unfriendly. We booked a 2 door economy car. When we finally got waited on, the only car available to us was a full size VAN (which was VERY difficult to get around in in Mission Beach)!! When we said we didn’t want a van, the only consolation MEX offered us was to cancel the rental. Dont know the point of making a reservation with this company when they don’t honor the reservation. Not worth the discount price. DONT USE THIS RENTAL COMPANY.

But this was way below basic (no power anything, windows doors) and then they tried to upsell/upgrade me at the counter for even just a basic car. if I would have know that was what I should expect I would have rented from another company and gotten a better car for the same price.

      The hidden fees were horrible at payless car rental. I will NEVER rent from them again. 2 week rental for $244 was the reason I went with them, then they put an extra $250 holding fee then they booked me for mileage when my mileage was supposed to be all included. No one told me that I couldn't travel to Sanfran. The lady at the desk specifically asked me where I was going and I told her San francisco and she didn't mention it to me at all! So I was charged an extra $150. At that rate of $650. I would have been better off going with budget or enterprise or anything other than payless... you definately do not pay less at payless car rentals.

      Avoid them! Way to pushy trying to get you to purchase add-on's and she even tried to get me to take a bigger car. There was only me, so why on earth she thought I'd need a bigger one was beyond me.

      No staff present at night. Had to come back next morning to pick car. Front staff rude next morning. Will book with tried and tested companies like hertz or avis next time.

      Like: Everything about picking up the car except the fact there was only one rep (the other left) even though there was a line.
      Dislike: One guy in front of us was having problems and the only rep should haave moved him to the side because there was a line of other customers with reservations.

      Advantage charged my credit card and stated our gas tank was not full at drop off. We specifically found a gas station that was open at 4:45 am to fill up our gas tank. This fraudulent charge is very concerning about company practices.

      Like: Service
      Dislike: At the beginning they told me that I have to pay another 200$for insurance liability. I was very upset since you told that I am not going to pay anything at the counter. Then they told me that I don't need to pay that. That was a relief.The other point is that they asked me if I like to pay 10$/day for tolls so I payed for 8 days and I used it twice. It would be better if they explained how much does it cost each time because I saw on the highway that I was able to pay it on line

      Rate was higher at the counter. However, the manager gave me the rate that Easy Rent Cars quoted.

      I waited 90 minutes before receiving the car as the location was overbooked. I had two tickets for San Diego Seaworld for more then $200. I lost 2 hours to be there cause I already had tight schedule and this just ruined my day. I would expect partial refund from the total charge because of this bad experience.

      Like: Thank you for a pleasant and quick rental process. The San Diego green motion staff was very helpful and friendly. I will be returning to the green motion facility soon and in the meantime, I will pass on my positive experience to those I know who will be renting in San Diego. Thanks again! Please pass on the positive feedback to those who helped me out from the counter, to handing me my keys.
