    Like: No surprises...got exactly what I reserved and for the price promised
    Dislike: The upsell....would of loved to upgrade to a higher class however upgrade pricing were very far fetched....cost more to upgrade 1 class than the total cost of my 2 week rental!

    Like: I was particularly impressed at how quickly we went through the pickup process, especially given how huge the crowd was and how stressed the other customers looked. We used the self-checkout process at the SFO Alamo counter, and while the kiosk actually malfunctioned, this allowed a manager on duty to whisk us through the process in remarkably short time. We had no issues with the reservation, and we were even given a wide choice of cars to choose from in the parking deck, including even a pickup truck (despite that we'd reserved a compact car). The return process was equally smooth, efficient and utterly hassle-free.

    A different car to what we originally ordered but felt like an upgrade! Very helpful at the counter however we received wrong information about the GPS. We were led to believe most of the cars didn't have built in GPS but when we got out there, they all did! Perhaps have the staff know everything about the cars.

    Our experience with Alamo was very positive - check-in process was quick and easy. During our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, a small rock cracked our windscreen. Thankfully, the included insurance covered the damage and we didn't have to pay any extra.

    Sold an excessive insurance package at the counter without explaining details which I figured out at the drop off. In addition, changed the car model at the pick up lot. I was too tired after a long flight and didn’t want to waste my time complaining about. I will not use this company any more.
