Pros:The drop off was inefficient. Dollar returns were being ahndled by Hertz. I didn't have anybody come up to me and the car and try to help me check out upon my arrival. Onstead, 25 minutes after my return, they checked out the car while there were very few cars in the return lot. This resulted in assessment of an unfair extra hour of rental to me, which they asessed to me and was entirely THEIR fault.Cons:Check out up9n return is inefficient with nobody to really work on my return immediately. Delays in return process are not acceptable and result in deceptive charges to customers.Reviewed 23 Oct 2020

Pros:The manager resolved the problem by finding a substitute car, and providing a discount.Cons:The car smelled like cigarette smoke. When I went back to the counter to reject the car, the homosexual clerk, as a typical immoral anarchist, was EXTREMELY rude, argumentative, and unhelpful. I had to make a pest of myself before he fetched the manager. The manager was very professional and provided a substitute car, and a discount.Reviewed 24 Sep 2020

Pros:The car drove nicely. I liked being able to drop it off at a place other than where I picked it up.Cons:Customer service at SAN was bad. After waiting in a long line to complete the paperwork I had to wait in another to get out of the lot. The gentleman, read sarcastically, was very rude and didn't want to hear about the dents and scratched on the car rented to me. He wanted me to take it as is or wait at the back of the line. Only by refusing to move was I allowed to fill out the paperwork. Please hire more people for SAN office.Reviewed 23 Sep 2020

Will not book againPros:the priceCons:I did not like that the car photo on my reservation was a convertible but when I got to the counter at dollar they stated that Kayak has the wrong vehicle showing and I could only have a full size. I argued and got nowhere. When I returned the car in LAX the line for the return was down the street effecting my 3pm arrival. Once I parked the car I waited with 20 other people for 15 mins to go over the car with the one agent. I told her I could not wait any more and she told me to leave the key in the car and no worries. I went in to the building to inform the 25 not busy agents inside that she needs help out side and one of the employees said They can handle it, I said I have to go and they said "Adios" and rolled his eyes. I was disgusted with the service.Reviewed 18 Jul 2016

Pros:The lady that assisted us us at check in seemed to be out out to answer any questions we had. . She said that the insurance we purchased online did not cover the vehicle through them. We ended up paying an additional $275 dollars!!!!! I WILL NEVER RENT THROUGH KAYAK OR FROM DOLLAR RENT A CAR AGAIN.Reviewed 30 Nov 2020
