Rented a mid-sized car with Dollar and realized we needed an SUV to fit all the luggage. Was told of the upcharge but not for the entire week, sale person made it sound like it was just an upcharge for the original price. He kept talking as I was reading through to distract me and the upcharge was per day. I ended up paying three time the amount of the mid-size I originally reserved. I would have been better off just getting another mid-size car. If you have a choice, don't choose Dollar. Worst option ever!!!

If I could give these thieves a -10 rating, I sure would. I reserved a car at a total $141.00, but was charged $326. Little did I know, I was charged for insurance that I never agreed to, nor was I ever told insurance was being added. When I called to have the charge removed, the woman told me to go back to the Dollar office to redo my contract, but I was already out of town by this point. When I finally made it back to the office, they told me they couldn't help me either and that I could call customer service.

I called customer service twice and with no remorse they told me there would not be a refund and it was my responsibility to check my total before accepting the contract. By the way, the rep that handled my contract never once mentioned a total, nor did I see a total when swiping my card, otherwise I wouldn't be here with this issue. They are ** sneaky with their "rape you" methods and they will not budge on giving back the money they steal from you! Please DO NOT use this company!

We had an unexpected trip to the East Coast of Florida. Toll by Plate is the only way to pay the tolls if you don't have an E-ZPass. The toll charges were: $5.00. Dollar charged $60.00 in administration fees on $5.00 in tolls. The offer from Dollar was that I could save $12.00 by retroactively signing up for the toll by plate. Outrageous overpricing in my opinion. Although we are frequent travelers, this is my last reservation with Dollar or any of their affiliates.

Dollar Rental Car is a total rip off. I had to pay about $80 of gas because the counter clerk failed to tell me that they charge $10 a gallon if they had to filled up the tank when I brought the car back. On top of that they didn't give me an opportunity to pay myself for tolls tickets. They went ahead and paid for them but also charged $15 for administrative fee per toll!! All of these could've been avoided if the clerk had given me the proper information. I would never rent from them ever again.

As above people noted, final bill will be approximately double what they quote you - numerous ripoff schemes (Foreign currency fee after booking with English speaking agent). Tricked into taking Sunpass for tolls - tolls for trip all payable by cash and totaled approx. $5.50, Sunpass was $10.49 per day! Customer service rep pleasantly explained how the ripoff is almost unavoidable. Stay far, far away from Dollar Rent a Car!!!

I was charged $500 for a 2 day rental that was supposed to be $184. The customer service agent charged my card without my approval. I was shocked at the difference and after looking through the receipt, I noticed there was a different return destinations and fee of $200. There was a computer malfunction that caused my booking to change from Atlanta to Tampa, to Atlanta to Atlanta. The customer service agent would not refund the charge and directed me to call a 1-800 number that was closed for the weekend. I've left several messages and sent several emails with no response. The charge is now being disputed with my bank. I will never use Dollar Rent A Car again. Avoid at all costs!

I rented a car from Dollar when on a trip to Tampa, Florida in March 2017. After arriving late at night, the person at the desk took a long time to check us in due to numerous requests to add on cost, such as additional insurance and pre-paying for gas, etc, which we turned down. It was emphasized we would have to pay triple the amount for gas if we did not fill up before returning the car. By the time we finally got our car, it was past 10 pm. We were tired and driving in an area we were unfamiliar. After driving for some time I noticed the gas tank was EMPTY!! There was little to no gas in the car. We had to find an open gas station, no easy task, then fill up the tank. We contacted Dollar to complain and took a picture of the empty tank. We told them we were NOT returning a car with gas in it, since we did not start with any gas.

Then as we continued to drive, I noticed a low tire pressure light that was on. We arrived at our hotel and did not drive the car for a few days. The next time we went to the car, there was a flat tire. I called Dollar to complain, sure it was because there was a low tire light. They proceeded to tell me I would have to pay $80 for someone to come out and additional fees to fix the tire. So we took care of it ourself, which was quite inconvenient. It took us up to two hours of our vacation to get someone to change the tire to a spare, then we drove the car to the Sarasota Airport to exchange cars.

On our way back to the Tampa airport we stopped in St. Petersburg for lunch and used a meter. When we got to the car, there was a parking ticket on the car. We contacted the police dept of St. Petersburg to dispute the ticket, since there was still time on the meter, but could only leave a message. Since we were in a hurry to catch our flight, we decided to just pay the ticket. Then two months later, I get a letter from Dollar charging me a $30 "Administrative Fee" for "Processing the parking violation". What a joke. What a ripoff. Never again.

I made a reservation in March online to rent a car from Dollar rent a car in Orlando airport. After I made the reservation I was reading all the negative reviews so I called Dollar to confirm my reservation. The lady I spoke to was very pleasant. I arrived in Orlando April 23 around 8:45 am. I went to the desk to check in and get my car. The young gentleman who helped me was very nice, he asked if I needed the toll pass and I said no. He also asked if I needed additional insurance and again I said no. There was no pressure to purchase any of these "extras". He gave me the rental agreement, I paid the fee and he told me where to go to get the car.

Dollar was much cheaper than Hertz or Alamo. I went across the street to where all the cars were parked, chose the compact car I wanted and drove off. The experience was pleasant and quick. I was on the road within 30 minutes of landing in Orlando. The car was nice, clean and ran fine. When I returned the car there were no problems. I returned it with a full tank of gas which was in my contract. I don't know why there are so many negative reviews about this company. I had no problems at all and would rent from them again.

I rented a car in April for my Florida trip. I've rented with Dollar Rental in the past, hence my choice to go with them for my car rental. However I've never experienced the issues that took place at the Orlando airport Thrifty counter. I made a prepaid reservation so my money was already withdrawn. I'm out of my $200 now. They told me the reason they couldn't honor my reservation because my flight itinerary did not match my requested rental dates. They suggested I modify my reservation through this 3rd party I was unaware had taken my reservation, CarTrawler. I arrived at the counter pick up 1:15 45 mins before my scheduled time. The company told me they could not modify my reservation because I was calling after my pick up time. I was on hold with two different companies, which were recommended by Dollar Rental.

I tried explaining over & over my confirmation details NEVER stated my itinerary must match my flight details nor does any of the connecting sites. Thrifty Dollar, Cartrawler, etc. I was ripped off simply because I am a Floridian. These car rental companies are protecting their merchandise, go figure, but do not punish us all by making up bogus requirements & stipulations that the company cannot confirm being true. I was told by the FOM Brenda who works at the counter pick inside the Orlando, MCO airport that their website states it. I combed the entire site & could not find the said requirements. When I asked can she show me exactly where it's stated she couldn't find the information. Instead I was left to deal with a very rude associate named Aida. I can understand if I was in the wrong but I wasn't.

This new rule started in Jan-Feb. per their FOM Brenda. I never received a rental because I would've had to pay an additional $500 in order to keep my reservation. I was never contacted by either of the companies, Cartrawler & Dollar Rental in regards to this issue. Instead I was told I will receive an email giving instructions on "opening a case" in order to receive my money back. It is exactly 24 days later & I haven't received not even a courtesy call. I never leave negative comments but I am in disbelief I had such a terrible experience with a company I trusted & recommended so often to many of peers. If we have to look forward to these type of experiences I will never recommend Dollar Thrifty ever again. My booking reference number was **.

I had a really negative experience with Dollar a couple of years ago when they charged my credit card for someone else's rental, and it took a few months to clear up with no apology from Dollar. Why I rented from them again is beyond me, expect they offered a 20% discount. The service at Denver airport was horrific. Long lines, disgruntled employees, kiosks which did not work, etc. I reserved a 4 wheel drive SUV and had a confirmation number. However, they did not have that car to offer me. I had to downgrade to another vehicle with AWD, but was told I couldn't be compensated for the difference because I prepaid. I was starting vacation and just wanted to get away from their rental location so off I went. I am frequently in Denver and know about the toll roads.

When I rent with Alamo the tolls are charged to me at cost, no big deal. Dollar mentioned nothing so I ran on an assumption that they operated the same way. Bad assumption! I was charged a $15 administrative fee for each toll pass. My total fee for the actual tolls was only $21, with an administrative fee from Dollar of $90. My fees cost more than my rental. I'm done with Dollar. I hope this is helpful to others. Stay away from Dollar. I've never had a problem with Alamo or Enterprise.

I rented a car through Dollar on 4/5/2017 and just yesterday received a notice in the mail that I owed $4.76 along with a $60.00 Admin Fee... When I rented the car no one ever mentioned I would be traveling on toll roads with hidden scanners to collect tolls. I paid all the other tolls that I passed. Along with never indicating I could've paid a fee to avoid any toll charges. Now they want me to pay $60.00. Well needless to say I will never recommend Dollar to anyone and I will never use Dollar Rent A Car. I also will use other Social Media Opportunities to advise people to use other Rental Services and avoid DOLLAR all together. My grown children rent cars often for work and pleasure along with many of our friends. I do plan on making certain they never use Dollar Rental.

I booked online and paid upfront; remained a balance to be paid at the counter. Got to the counter for pick up and the agent at Pittsburgh Airport contrived a bill claiming I said yes to insurance despite telling him, "No. I do not want." They were more interested in the money they fraudulently charged than the balance of the online booking (I was not charged that balance at all). Dollar is a fraud and I have told tell I will never stop until they return my money. I will use every publicly available agency to get my money back.

Almost identical to the complaint from NY, we were in DFW in March 2017 and had the same experience. However, I have a witness when I asked the service desk rep at Dollar to show us freeway routes that did not have toll roads. We saw no toll booths, no signage that said a toll started or stopped and had no idea that we were even on a toll road. I guess the rep misunderstood my request... or he intentionally gave us toll routes because of the spiff he gets for generating more revenue. The rental for 2 days was $47; the tolls were $14.40. The "admin fee" was $90. Rent from Dollar if you want... but don't be surprised when the bill they send comes in the mail for twice of what you paid. Apparently this scam is not limited to Texas.

We have rented from them twice now, and both times had horrible experiences. The first time the women I encountered at pick-up was rude, and very nasty with me because I would not purchase their extra insurance. The insurance cost more per day than I was paying to rent the car. After I told her I did not want the insurance, she proceeded to put the agreement in with everything else I had to sign and have me sign it anyway.

Thinking that maybe this was just one employee we tried them again. Same tactic only this time my husband did not catch it in time. After repeatedly verbally declining the add-on insurance to the person at the counter they included it in his paperwork and had him sign it. (Yes he should have read the papers better, but after traveling for 14 hours and discussing his wishes with the person at the counter he thought it was settled.) At drop off he found that this DOUBLED the cost of the car. Bottom line, they will lie, sneak, and bully to get your money.

Please don't ever rent from Dollar/Thrifty, it will ruin your trip or vacation. I reserved an SUV online, in San Antonio to drive to South Padre for a weeks vacation. So the vehicle was prepaid. Upon arriving, we could not fit our luggage in the car (4 people, 6 bags) they didn't have anything larger available. So they suggested renting a smaller vehicle to get us to our condo that we could drop off in South Padre the next day. We did this, however the taxes and fees were over $125 and we were not told about the drop off fee which was another $125. We could have rented the vehicle for the full week and returned it to San Antonio for a total of $145.

Going back to the SUV, we added another driver, however when I received my credit card statement, they had actually added 2 extra drivers, my husband was down as a driver twice and our friend traveling with us. I was charged $389 along with the prepaid amount of $282. None of the fees were discussed, they told us not to worry about it because we were already prepaid.

I called customer service and asked to speak with management, they refused. I told them of my situation and they continued repeating, "You should have read your contract, you should have read your contract, you should have read your contract!!!" I guess what she was really saying was, "Too bad, you lose, don't believe everything we tell you!!" Because she replied, that she wasn't there and doesn't know what the representative told us, so she can't help us, we should have read our contract, and she was laughing!!! I will never, ever, ever use them again. I sent an email complaining and never got a response. So beware, this company survives by cheating and lying to their customers.

Horrible experience with Dollar Car rental company at Atlanta airport. Do not believe their advertised rates. We were triple charged over the reserved amount. Agent was very pushy with insurance though we have coverage through our own insurance and extra coverage with American Express. When I asked to speak to the manager, agent removed $30 in charges but never call for a manager. In many years of renting cars we never had such an awful experience. It was a first time and the last time renting with Dollar. Stay away from this company. You will end up getting a better deal and experience with other companies.

Dollar car rental is the most terrible rental agency in the world. They are overcharging without any reason stating that you returned your car 15 minutes later. It doesn't matter that you previously informed them about the delay and they confirmed that it will be no extra charge. After I signed the 0$ bill after I returned the car they just deducted 35 dollars from my bank account without sending me an email or bill or anything. NEVER DEAL WITH DOLLAR RENTAL CAR agency. Dollar rental car steals your money!!

My fiancee flew into DFW from Spain for the week of my birthday. This was her first time in America so, I have been wanting her to see the best of it. She booked a car for pick-up at the airport with "Dollar Rent A Car." When we picked the car up initially nothing was said about a no smoking policy. We are both accustomed to "smoking or non smoking?" courtesies as in the hotel business. At any rate, having not read the rental agreement interlinear jargon and not having the company inform us, we were charged $300. More than the rental price itself.

The moral of the story, in my mind is, don't rely on this company to extend any such courtesies or give you any heads up other than a tiny little no smoking decal tucked away at the top of the windshield behind the Sun visor. I believe that a corporation can actually operate without deceitful practice and even more so with giving such courtesies to someone they hope to bring return business. I do not recommend this company at all!!!

We rented a car from Dollar rental car at the Las Vegas airport in April for 8 days. We told the lady behind the counter that we decline all insurance because we're already covered. After we returned the car we had to pay $323 more! An insurance charge and an extra driver charge.

I picked up my rental car at Dollar Car Rental at Detroit Metro Airport today (Apr 13). The line had 30 people in it when I walked in at 11:45 am. There were only two customer service reps serving us. I inquired about the three kiosks and was told all three were not working. This is Easter weekend and Spring break. All three kiosk are broken at the same time? Really... Anyway, a lady name Autumn waited on me. She had zero personality. She was short, curt and rude. She did not even thank me for my business. Dollar needs to fire the manager, fix their Kiosks and train their reps on "How to provide good customer service" or fire them too. This was my first time and last. I would give them no stars if that was an option.

I am EXTREMELY disappointed in Dollar Rental. I have used them in the past and the rate was adequate and known beforehand. When I rented this last time, a vehicle that I thought I was renting for 307$ a week and maybe some minor fees, ended up to be over 640$!!! This is ABSURD! The amount of "fees" that was added was unnecessary and uncalled for. The lady at the counter had minimal knowledge of anything that was going on, including what I had paid prior to, and just saw the additional 300+ I was paying then. I will never use Dollar again. Especially since I went through using my AAA, or so I thought, not that the lady at the counter had any idea. The fees should not be MORE than the rental. I am extremely disappointed, and angry over the overcharging for a rental... and the car wasn't even clean. It had lollipop sticks in the door handle, and wrappers in the doors. Such a disappointing experience.

I rented a car from Dollar rentals online and because I chose to pay now my contract was bought by rentalcars.com without my knowledge. We arrived to pick up the car to find out that I had to have a driver’s license from Europe in order to rent the car. Since we are from Canada we didn't have that. They offered no help at the desk to help me out by calling the RENTALCARS.COM to see what happened so we ended up paying $715.32 Canadian since it was spring break in Fort Lauderdale instead of the $324.32 that I had paid 2 months earlier when I booked it through Dollar (Rentalcars.com). Once I returned home I called Dollar and spoke with a woman named April that seem to be willing to help me but she told me that I had to deal with Rentalcars.com first and get my original refund from them.

So I called them and ended up speaking to a manager named Rory and wasn't much help as far as how I ended up renting a car as if I was from London, except to say that when I asked for a quote the website didn't recognize my IP Address so it defaulted to a London email address and that is the reason he gave me for why I ended up paying the lower amount which was no fault of my own. But strangely enough they have a line in their agreement somewhere that states if this happens it isn't their fault either. After a few emails back and forth with him I rec'd my $324.32 refund last week.

Today I tried to call April back as she said once I had the first mess cleaned up. She thought that Dollar Rental would help me with some reduction of the cost I was forced to pay due to Spring Break going on when we arrived March 18/17 and there wasn't much left to rent so they had us trapped. So I feel that they overcharged us knowing we needed a car. I spoke with Freddie on the customer service desk and he was rude and so not helpful like April had been 2 weeks ago and told me that DOLLAR doesn't make adjustments to any charges and that I was free to complain all I wanted but I would not be getting any refund. I would NEVER RENT FROM DOLLAR RENTAL CARS AGAIN UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET RIPPED OFF!!!

We recently rented a car. On the way from the airport we got lost on a toll road. There were no toll booths and no way to pay the toll. When we got home we got bills from dollar for the 1 dollar toll plus a 90 dollar service charge for each time we time around on the road. These service charges were obscene. The dollar in the company's name seems to mean they want everyone you have ever earned. They use a low advertised price to get you into the shell game. Never make the mistake.

I would like to share my sentiments and also some comments that I hope will reach the people running Dollar. I am a small travel blogger and I blog about all my travel around other countries and this was my first try using Dollar Rental. I've been a regular ENTERPRISE user but wanted to give DOLLAR a try this time around. What a big mistake it turned out to be...

My itinerary for this trip was Boston and NYC, both cities were my starting and ending points, and being new to the city, Logan Airport was my first point of contact. Upon arriving at the Dollar Rental Booth I quickly gave them my reservation name and number and they were able to find it with no problem. Now I'm used to sales people upselling stuff and I am usually open to add on things if it was worthwhile. But what I found disgusting is the way that your agent lied so that I take the add ons she was pushing. I do not know if that was how you trained them to upsell but she said and I quote "If you don't take the unlimited toll package you'd be paying $15 management fee PER toll you pass" (which was about 5 according to her and which I later found out to be both untrue).

Plus, I was also bullied into buying the insurance that DOLLAR provides. Even though I already stated that my credit card already has me covered, she made it seem like I had no choice but to get DOLLAR insurance (which essentially doubled my bill). Now I run a small business myself and I couldn't imagine myself lying to my customer just to get a sale. Shame on you!

My last comment was now about the car itself. On my way to NYC I stopped by a beautiful place called Madison Beach but on my first day there my rental wouldn't start. I tried and tried but nothing was working. No lights... No horn... To top it all off I had a lunch meeting I was going to be late to. After almost 2 hours, I finally was able to get a local mechanic to help me out. He drove down and looked at it, spent 5 to 10 minutes diagnosing the problem and finally got it to start. He said it was a faulty/loose battery connection. He charged me $350 for that visit and I want that reimbursed.

I did call it in to your customer service which said that they have taken a note of it and I'd have to discuss it with the manager when I drop the car off in NYC. But lo and behold, when I did drop it off, the receptionist rudely said that there is no manager around and she couldn't do anything. "Call customer service to complain" she said. So I'm very disappointed and up in arms about my whole experience with Dollar. But I do hope someone listens to this and hopefully acts upon it.

They will never ever get my business again. Not even for free. I would never support a company who doesn't hold EMPLOYEES accountable. Whatever happened to transparency and integrity? Dollar rental is a bottom feeder rental company who takes advantage of customers who put real trust into employees. I should not have to take two hours out of my day to read a contract. I have gotten rental cars before ALL from Enterprise and have never ever had to read the "fine" print. The employees tell you everything and they have always been exact and to the penny. I was charged in excess of over $200 above what I was told by Steve at the airport and a company who supports this type of fraudulent behavior will never gain my trust again.

I was told I was required to purchase the insurance even though I told them I didn't need it because I have full coverage under my insurance company. This was a lie. I was told I would not have to pay for an upgrade. I was charged $50 a day for an upgrade. Another lie. I was told I would be paying for only three days after I gave the agent my exact dates and time of usage. I even repeated it. I was charged for four days. Lie number 3. Went to speak with manager and was blamed for the lies of the company employee. All she would say is that I should have read my contract. I have an active case filed against them by the BBB. Waiting on a reply.

I rented a Mazda 3 from LAX. Car was OK. I had prepaid for the vehicle in Australia but had no idea of all the additional charges. Ended up costing more than twice as much. Had to wait a long time for the bus at the airport. (Should have used Avis or Hertz). Impossible to phone the LAX office of Dollar - you have endlessly shunted around to their Manila call centre. Rented a GPS for a day - was automatically charged for 10 days, even after clearly informing staff I only wanted their GPS for a single day.

When I returned the GPS the following day I was "refunded" US$135 - which a month later is still not in my bank account. Contacted my Bank - no record of it being returned. Tried to call their customer service number - also nothing out of US office hours. I'm missing AUD about $200 and have little hope of getting it back. Really, I would never rent from them again and definitely won't advise anyone to use them. They are a disgrace. Office staff not very competent or helpful.

We pre-purchased rental through Expedia, declined insurance, declined insurance at the counter. At signing, we were told amount was for full rental amount and deposit which would be refunded. Turns out it was for insurance and roadside assistance that we didn't need or want. They now refuse to refund, but will 'split the cost', which we refused. Now trying to dispute through credit card company. Read multiple reviews of similar experiences, so this must be intentional.

Today I have received 15.00 administrative fee for each toll amount, a total of 3 tolls for 1.25 each one, the Dollar Rental has decide to charge me 15.00 for each one. For a car Rented of 47 cost per day, I have to pay 45.00 extras in that ugly, nonlegal and disproportionate fee. I have never received any alert from the seller for that issue upfront. Please avoid renting a car thru this Car Rental Ugly Company, when the competitors are well set up for this tolls charges.

My husband and I recently took a trip to Florida to watch our college daughter play softball. We booked our complete trip using our credit card miles. Our flight (which were amazing), our room for 5 days at a 5 star hotel (which was also amazing) and our Rent A Car. Once we landed in Orlando, we picked up our luggage, and headed down to get our car. Once we got to where we needed to be, we waited for an hour for our turn (only 1 person working). Once we got to the window, I showed the person my Trip ID number and was very friendly about what we would need and not. The thing is the car was booked under my name (but husband is listed on the account), so she stated that we needed to add him as the main driver. She also said that we needed to take insurance out (which we already had).

Then she asked about the fuel, we said it can just be filled up and charged to us (person said no more than 10.00 usually) because we had to leave so early in the morning. We did fill it up the night before so we were expecting a little bit of a charge, but we got a charge of 39.59 for fuel. I have the same vehicle at home and I can fill it up when it is almost empty and it wouldn't cost me that much. We didn't get a navigation system because we both had smart phones. Once we got through all of this, she stated that they needed a credit card to have on hand for the fuel and also if there were any other damages - and that I needed to sign and initial by these areas. Being new to this (TRUST ME WE LEARN A VERY VALUABLE LESSON) we did what was asked.

We then proceed out to the car area, like a herd of cattle, had no idea what car we were to take, and nobody was friendly enough to even answer a question. To me in a city that large if you're that unhappy with your job, find another one that don't include working with people daily, many of them couldn't speak or even understand ENGLISH. How sad is this, we live in AMERICA. Anyway once we got home, I got our credit card statement and we had been charged 201.20 for the following 13.69/ day for insurance, 67.00 to add my husband as a driver,39.59 for fuel, 8.60 taxes and 17.56 misc fees, but couldn't get any kind of receipt. I couldn't understand this, since we had been charged 182.41 or 18,241 miles for the initial rental. Thinking a doubled up mistake had taken place, I found out that, that wasn't the case. This charge was on top of everything else.

When I called our credit card company, they did a conference call with DOLLAR RENTAL and all the lady could say was, "you signed the contract" and "CAN YOU HEAR ME". I could hear her, just was in total disbelief that a company could actually do this to people. After all of this, I have now read the reviews and am really dumb to not have done this before. I am usually pretty careful, but couldn't believe the amount of people who have had so many of the same issues. In my words DO NOT USE DOLLAR RENT A CAR - they lie, cheat people but most of all they take people for all they can get and that is truly sad. I wouldn't have even given them 1 STAR but it is required, maybe that one star is just for being there in person, I don't know. ABSOLUTELY THE WORST CAR RENTAL PLACE I HAVE EVER USED!!!

I had recently rented a midsize car out of the Atlanta, Ga airport Dollar rental for a business trip. I instructed the agent at the time of rental I didn't need rental insurance, because my company covered this. He indicated that I would not be charged for this upon return at the end of the rental. Well that didn't happen, so I contacted the customer service to explain the mix-up only to receive a very nasty reception to the tone of "you signed the agreement and I have no way of verifying it between you and the associate." Granted that is correct but in the business of the customer service you should try to resolve or come to a compromise with the customer, instead of your wrong the end. I can say as a government employee, I highly recommend not to rent from this rental car agency. The customer service was not worthy. I have informed my fellow associates whenever traveling in the states not to use this car rental company for business or pleasure trips.
