Pros:Upon my arrival, a sign indicated to go to another car rental place due to Advantage being closed. Was not able to pay cash upon drop off which I was told that I could at drop off. The car was not adequate in size as per advertised. It indicated 4 suitcase, however only 2 medium size fit in the back.Cons:Cleaning of the back seat, stains were really visible after you let the arm rest up.Reviewed 9 Sep 2020

Pros:Staff at the counter was not very friendly. Charged me a $150 deposit. When will that be returned?Cons:The sign for the counter at the Tampa airport is not very clear. We followed the signs and it led down to the garage and had to go back up to get the keys.Reviewed 20 Apr 2021

Cons:We selected the Toyota camry or similar package, but we were given a lime green kia soul that smelled so awefull for days. This was selected by the guy in the garage with the keys. But the girl at the front desk was more than helpful, she was awesome and friendlyReviewed 4 Oct 2020

Cons:We dropped it off early, then got a call that it was late...please bring it back. Also, the sales tactics at check in were slimy at best. So....will avoid AAdvantage due to poor administration.Reviewed 12 Sep 2020

Cons:There was no one at the counter when I arrived and the phone numbered given was no longer in service. That made me very leery and concerned. Even the 800 number said “we are not taking calls”, send us an email. After waiting over 25 minutes an agent arrived, but during the check in process he was very short and eventually became very, very rude. To the point that I walked away and rented else where. His name was AJ. It seems this company may be going out of business as while waiting I called Two other locations and their numbers were also not working. To bad because they used to be good with happier employees.Reviewed 16 Aug 2020

Pros:The price.Cons:You get what you pay for with Advantage rental car. The shuttle from the airport was slow and the customer service reps were robotic. They make you feel guilty if you don't get their insurance and try every sales pitch to get you to add it to your rental, as well as include the toll fees in your rental. They tried to get me into a larger car, "only $7/day extra" which would have cost an additional $70 at least. The car I got was dirty, dented, scratched and had almost 30,000 miles on it. It took me longer to complete the the damage paperwork than it did to get to my final destination. I won't rent from them again. In the future, I'll go with the larger, well known car rental companies. Like I said, you get what you pay for.Reviewed 13 Dec 2015

Cons:It took a while for the shuttle to slow up once the pick up area was found. People at the airport were not friendly at all when asked where the shuttle area was at. Once at the "office" area, was disappointed at the variety of cars available. Online the ad indicated they had GM vehicles, only 1 on the lot - smaller than reserved. The car had some slight damage to it, no windshield fluid, dirty inside and the passenger seat was falling apart. The rental price was more than the price online. Personnel in the office were not very friendly. Actually they seemed more interested in their cell phones or something else than to rent a vehicle to us.Reviewed 29 Mar 2016

Pros:Everything went smooth until the drop off made me nervous.Cons:The car had fees attached that made it a misleading price. And the little car we got was quite expensive.Reviewed 8 Dec 2020

Will probably never rent from them againPros:The drop off process was quick and easyCons:From the moment I got to Tampa, it was a disaster. The rental location is "off-site" from the airport, which was not mentioned when I set up my reservation. Took 30+ mins for a shuttle to come pick me up from the airport, even though other shuttle companies circled by at least 3-4 times. I called their Tampa office number several times, trying to get information. I left messages, never speaking to a live rep. When I FINALLY got to the off site location, it looked like we were in the ghetto. The place was run down, and inside was disgusting, like they hadn't in weeks. Also, apparently advantage is now part of EZ rentals now (which would have been nice to know, since there was 2 or 3 of those shuttles that drove by withing that 30-45 minute time frame). The only thing that kept me from changing companies right then and there was the sales rep. He was fairly attentive to my complaints, and apologetic... (though I'm not sure if he will take them any higher to get the problems resolved). Another thing I thought was ridiculous, was they charged me a pre-paid toll fee, for $27, when I maybe only accrued $5-$8 in tolls. I'd rather pay my own tolls instead of making someone else money. At least the car was clean, and the drop off process went smoother than picking up. Still, overall I was not impressed and would not recommend themReviewed 15 Oct 2015
