Advantage Rent A Car Complaints and Reviews
Same as the previous February 12th Review-30 minutes waiting for shuttle while numerous other rental car buses went by at LAX-only 1 hour wait line-guess I should be grateful. Returned early as did not trust them to get me to terminal. Girl said my receipt would be emailed right away. No receipt yet, and so far I have been on hold with their phone line for 50 minutes. I am a federal employee so all feds--BEWARE! Do not rent from them. I will be...Read more

We rented a car at Advantage in Honolulu. It took us almost 2 hours before we got our car. The customer service representative will pressure you to get their car insurance that cost more than $500 plus then if you decline she will try to scare you that Honolulu is raining hard and is flooded and there are a lots of landslides, saying if the car gets flooded you are liable. This is one of their NASTY ways to make money. They offer you a gas plan...Read more

While I was was treated well at phenoix Sky harbor desk. It was when I went to sign the contract and a $530 qoute turned into $850 that I got upset. There were 31% fees and taxes added even though online said total cost! Car was nice but costly for a five day trip!

We rented a car for 3 days from LA. Estimated cost $ 191.96. We got the car back 10 mins late and in a hurry to shuttle. Checked the summary when back home in Australia. An extra day was added even though we were told it would be okay if it was 30 mins late. Final cost $283.82. I tried to ring them from Australia and they hung up on me. Crooks. Never had an issue with Alamo.

PSA: if you rent a car NEVER, EVER, EVER rent from Advantage Rent-A-Car. They have the worst service, car maintenance and employees I have ever encountered and I've encountered a lot. This is the second and last time they will nickel and dime as well as mistreat me with no accountability. The CEO shoyld be ashamed of this company. It's a joke and definitely not the cheapest or wisest option.
Made a reservation with Advantage in LA. Waited 30 minutes for the shuttle. That was the positive part of the experience. Tried calling the 800 number to talk to someone. What a joke. Waited 25 minutes on hold - nobody ever answered. That was the 2nd best part of my customer experience. Got to the rental center to find 50 people on line. Took nearly 90 minutes to get to the counter. That's 2 hours from curbside to getting into the car. THE...Read more

HORRIBLE When we rented from Advantage in LA we had to wait over 1/2 for the Advantage bus to take us to the car rental lot. We tried calling but no one answered. Stupidly we decided to give them another try in Denver. First we had to wait about 15 minutes for the bus. Then the line at the lot was ridiculous. Since we were taking the car into the mountains to ski we asked for all wheel drive. The agent said the car was AWD. We should have double...Read more
Bait and switch BS of the highest order mixed with a hunka-junk rental make for one sad-*** experience with Advantage on W Laurel St in Tampa. I had a hot-rate rental from Hotwire for a convertible Mustang, Chrysler Sebring, or similar. For those not aware, what that means is that you do not know the name of the rental company before you pay and once you pay and find out who is renting the vehicle there is no way to cancel the reservation. It is...Read more

My husband and I used advantage for a long weekend. When arrived at the lot we were told to review the car and sign an inspection form. We found small damage on the side panel so we had to find an attendant to make him aware- Strike 1. We drove to an airbNb and park the car. When we returned the vehicle the attendant inspected it and told us we were good. Months later I receive a bill in the mail about a side view mirror- strike 2. I know for a...Read more
I rented a 2017 chev Malibu. Nice car but as I pulled out of the garage I noticed the gas gauge appeared to not quite be full. I declined their full tank thing because the last time I rented a car I did not use a full tank. Upon return I filled the car to.over full and drove about 5 miles to the airport. This car averages 27.5 mpg. When I got to the return lot the guy tells me the tank is not full! I told him I just filled it and he was arguing...Read more
Oh my god! This is the worst experiences I ever had. I went to pick up my car at albuquerque airport advantage rental car center, the lady names Laura was very rude. She asked me to step back when I was waiting another representative to get my car key. I was like excuse me? I am not done yet why would you ask me to step back. She was like there are other customers in the line, I looked back no ones in the line. I am also your customer, ain't I?...Read more
They will act like you woke them up and they are too busy with their personal stuff and you are here disrupting and annoying them. They are getting irritated when you ask additional question or didn’t understand something. In NJ airport there is very dangerous and inconvenient entrance when you return the car. It’s very impersonal; you barely see any one or talk. I had no chance to ask what to do with the tool violation. However, before I got a...Read more
