Dollar Rent A CarConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
Absolutely the worst place to EVER rent a car from. I've been traveling for years. This has to be the worst place I've ever dealt with. Traveling from the States to PR, flight was delayed due to bad weather. When we arrived we waited an HOUR for the shuttle that NEVER came. I called and was told to take a taxi and they would pay the fare. We arrived in a very SHADY neighborhood. GATE was locked, lights were off like it was closed. Called from the car and the gate miraculously opened. I take the Taxi Fare ticket in and explained what happened to the very large intimidating man behind the thick glass. He said, give me your reservation number. So, I gave it. He said, "You're late. We don't pay when you're late." I explained I phoned 3 times earlier that day to confirm my reservation and get the deposit information. The last call was to let them know my flight was delayed due to bad weather.
All 3 times I was never told my car reservation would be canceled or that the shuttle service wouldn't be available. I said, "So what are you saying..." The guy proceeded to tell me that he didn't have any more cars!!! Shocked because the lot was full of cars!! When I said, "What should I do???" because I was devastated... in a country I had never been, middle of the morning hours (overnight) talking to this stranger who made it evident by his answer he had no intention of helping me AT ALL responded with... "GO HOME!!!" Believe me I lost my temper but it didn't do me any good. I never got a car. Took the taxi back to the airport where I rented a car from Hertz. Lovely young man, who actually prided himself on his customer service skills helped me get into a rental within a half hr.
Now, what I want to know is what Dollar Car Rental is going to do about the absolute despicable behavior of this employee... who I won't mention his name but was the only employee working at 12:30 AM 3/3. Furthermore, I want to know what Dollar Car Rental is going to do for me to rectify this situation and the FOUL treatment I received. I will never recommend your service and I PROMISE I will be writing similar reviews for your rental agency on every social venue I can find. Despicable just ABSOLUTELY despicable!!!
If I could give zero stars I would. I rented a car from Dollar Dallas Love Field for less than 24 hours. My total mileage was 77. I thought I agreed to pay the cost of fuel to fill the vehicle up upon return; which is what I discussed with the agent. I was charged $36.82 for less than a 1/4 tank of gas. This was the cost of a full tank of gas. Why would anyone agree to pay for a full tank of gas when they knew they wouldn’t be using the full tank. The agent explained one option and charged me for another. I feel I was a victim of a bait and switch. I called Dollar to complain and their only response was I should have read my 1 contract. I will never rent from Dollar again nor will I ever recommend Dollar.
Left a pair of expensive prescription sunglasses in my rental and cannot get any cooperation from Dollar to retrieve my lost items. No one answers the lost and found helpline. They do not return calls and I cannot get the phone number to the location where I rented. I have never been so dissatisfied with a car rental company.
I would give no stars if allowed to do so. I prepaid my rental through Dollar's website. Got to the counter at Ft. Lauderdale Airport to pick up my car and was refused it. They said I did not pass a credit check (I didn't even give them my SS# nor was I made aware at the time of booking that a credit check was required), the guy was also very rude and had no customer service skills. I then asked for a refund and was told I needed to contact customer service. I was able to very easily rent from National whom I highly recommend! They didn't even hold a deposit for the car rental.
I am now trying to get my refund from Dollar and keep getting the runaround. They say if you rent from Dollar.com and prepay your rental car that it's not actually through Dollar but through a company called CarTrawler, so Dollar will not refund your money and tell you to take it up with CarTrawler. I am currently dealing with Cartrawler customer service which is only through email. I think that Dollar should make customers aware that when they prepay their rental they are making a contract through a different company not Dollar. I will never rent from Dollar again nor would I recommend them to anyone.
Hello, On 05 January 2018 I rented a vehicle from Dollar Rent A Car. Upon returning the rental I was charged 107.49 for toll charges-easy pass. One charge was travel to or through the NJ Turnpike. While my entire stay was in Stamford, CT. I informed Dollar that I did not travel to NJ. Upon their internal investigation that stated based on the mileage it was "possible" I was in NJ. When asking for a picture of the license plate for the toll charge I was told one could not be provided. This seems like a very strange process that is used to "verify" toll charges (base on mileage). Below is an email I received from Dollar regarding their investigation to the charges:
"Thank you for contacting the Dollar Toll and Violation Processing Service Center. In regard to Notice Number We have concluded our initial research based on the feedback you provided. Unfortunately, we were unable to identify any discrepancies indicating that the tolls reported against the vehicle are invalid. One toll was recorded by the plate on the car the other was reported by the transponder in the car. Dollar has not reported that the transponder was not in the car and there were enough miles on the car that the tolls could have been used. The plate reported by the toll authority was the plate for this car. Would you happen to have any supplemental documentation to submit placing you in an alternate location so that we may further investigate this matter? Any food, gas, or store receipts will be sufficient. We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may have caused. Please let us know if you have any further questions."

Rented a car from Dollar Rent A Car at Ft. Lauderdale airport for 3 days. Upon return of the car in perfect condition the inspector proceeded to tell us someone smoked in the car and handed us a 300.00 dollar bill! I expressed to him that we are not smokers! And not sure how he is coming to this conclusion? He only said, "My nose." I said, "Do you do swab test? Do you use a smoke detector device?" I proceeded to take pictures of the interior of the car to have proof that the car was clean, no marks on the seat! This is just a way they jack up their rental tickets! Absolutely a shakedown and very bad business practice! Judging from our experience and reading all the reviews how are they still in business? And not fined? Maybe a class action lawsuit is in order! Never went of my way to write review until today!
Never again. We rented a car on February, 2018. Extra fee for spouse, operator advice to buy unlimited I-Pass for 15$ per day due to many tolls, but we met only one for 4$. Also, poor car models choice (Nissan Altima and "20" years old Chevrolet for full size option). The car was not totally clean and had damages in the salon.
Our flight from Dallas to Tulsa was canceled and we were on a tight schedule for work so we rented a car from Dollar, one way, from DFW to Tulsa airport. We had the car for about five hours, returning it to Tulsa around 6 pm on Tues. The gentleman that met us at the rental return said he could not give us a receipt because the rental agreement wasn’t complete. He said his manager would resolve the issue and email the receipt. We accepted that and went on our way. Three days later we still don’t have a receipt and Dollar still has a $350 hold on our account. I called and spoke to the lady at DFW. She said they’d had an outage and they were about 1000 agreements behind but she’d find mine and close it and call me back. 24 hours later, no call.
I called again and was sent to Hertz customer service where the lady was so put out she actually said that I could not be satisfied in that call and was sending me to a manager. That was great! I’d been asking for one. I talked to Dian on the escalation line. Zero help. She said all she could do was email the location managers to resolve. I asked for phone numbers to Tulsa and DFW and she said she didn’t have them. Dian put me on a list for a manager to call back within 48 hrs. Really? 48 hrs was the best they could do. Dian said she would try to call me back by the end of the day and I respectfully asked that she call me either way and she agreed. I never heard a word.
Five days later, we still have no resolution. Dollar continues to hold $350 on our account and refuses to resolve the situation on anything other than a first come first served basis. That line is apparently extremely long. We did our part in the rental agreement. We took care of the vehicle, refueled it as expected and returned it to the designated location within the rental period. All we ask is that Dollar do their part and finalize the transaction and release the hold on our account. This is a horrible experience and I am praying we don’t have to retain an attorney to resolve.
They did not disclose anything at the time of rental. Dollar car rental is a fraud. Plain and simple.
Dollar/Europcar Rental are outright criminals. When you book everything is fine, once you arrive the excuses start why they cannot honor your booking price even with a confirmation in hand. They screw you over and over until you agree just to get out of the late night dark airport car rental area. Crooked Dollar has billed my credit card to where I could have rented a private jet and even my card insurer said there is nothing we can do because it is crooked Dollar/Europcar rental. Do yourselves a favor stay away from these crooks.
I rented a car and less than two hours of driving the tire burst. I called customer service and was told, "Just bring the car back and we can switch to a different one". I drive all the way back to the rental place (I was on a road trip and this literally put us 4 hours behind) for an exchange as this can only happen at corporate location. I exchange vans and am told everything will just switch to the new vehicle. Then when I drop off I am charged $80 freaking dollars for gas!!! I was told that didn't transfer, but everything else did. I also had to pay $38 for the tire that blew within an two hours of being on the road. I will never rent from them again! I reached out to customer service and they were no help.
I arrived in San Diego at midnight. Picked up my car. THey asked me if I wanted to decline CDW and I said yes. I would NEVER take it as I have 2 credit cards that cover me. I have never taken CDW in 20 years. Anyway it was late and we were tired so I check did not check my receipt. SUre enough when I returned the car and they emailed the receipt they had added a $68 charge for a 3 day rental. They also have hidden fees when you return the car which is not on your original booking. Crooks. Never again.
I have rented from a number of car rental places in the past but this is seriously the worst experience I have ever had. A few weeks ago I had a car from them in Houston, Texas and everything was going fine. I returned it without filling up and I understand I had to pay some fees for that to which I really can't complain. But what happened next is just wrong. A few days later I noticed that I had some crazy charges on my credit card so I decided to investigate. After all how much do they charge for gas. It end up that a day after I returned it somebody concluded that I had smoked in the car. The problem is I don't even smoke. To add further insult to injury I am driving the car with children passengers the whole time. I did call to explain it to them and customer service was nice enough to credit me $150 out of the $300 charge. They did tell me to speak to the location manager in order to resolve this.
Two weeks later I went back to Houston and decided to rent from them again, mainly because this trip was booked a while back. The manager told me that he could not help me and gave me somebody else's contact info, email and phone number. I did try to reach this mystery person but had no luck. He never replied to my email and when I called the number appeared to not even be active. At the next day I end up getting a flat tire after hitting a pothole. I called roadside assistance and they told me somebody would be there in 30-45 minutes. After making numerous calls I ended up waiting over 2.5 hours. Which messed up my whole trip. It turns out the lady on the phone never gave the tow truck my contact info and they couldn't find me so they left even though I gave them specific instructions on how to locate me.
The next day when I returned the car in order to exchange it they took all my belongings out of the car and then wouldn't give me another car until I provided them with a claim number, for hitting a pothole and getting a flat. I eventually resolved the matter after the credit card company assisted me. After a while they provided me another car and I was on my way.
Then the next day when I returned the car after driving it for less than a day the girl before she even got into the car asked me if I smoked in the car, and I explained to her I do not smoke. She proceeds to charge me $300 again (incidentally) it was the same girl that charged me the last time. I think that they had something entered on the computer referencing to the last incident and they charged me automatically without any justification. Now I need to call and try to get a refund for half of the amount and try to speak to somebody at the location for the remainder. All I can say is never again, I am done with this crappy company. They are scammers. Stay clear. Don't be fooled by the cheap prices. This is how they fish you in.
First off if a -0 would exit that would be my rating for this company. I did my reservation online with Expedia, the total was a good price since they also included an insurance totaling $112.00, I also told them I need 2 car seats since I was traveling with my children and they never told me that would be an extra charge. When we arrived to the airport and went to pick up our vehicle we were told the total would be more totaling $231.00 which was now the extra fees of the car seats (which again was never told to me) and extra fee for paying with a debit card (another daily fee) meaning there was hidden fees of $119 more which was never told to me, it's like I was paying 2 rental cars. When I tried to ask why these charges they said they had nothing to do with Expedia or online. They wanted me to call and cancel with Expedia and do the reservations with them.
I'm not sure if they get commission from their sales but I wouldn't want to give her my commission either way since she was very rude and not personable, didn't feel comfortable with her since I would ask her questions and she did not know how to answer them clearly. When we went to return the car they refused to give us a receipt that we had turned in the car, my husband had to speak another employee and she was the one who helped us after he demanded a receipt. Also, the car seats that we had to pay for were not safe at all, did not have proper harness or latches, and they were very very very filthy. I will NEVER EVER use this company again!!!
I wish I had read the postings before I rented a car from Dollar in Houston. I wasn't too happy to receive a bill for $93.15 for 9 tolls of .35 each but with a $90 administration fee. I had no idea that tolls were charged by electronic billing in Texas. I had never even seen such a thing before. After the dollar fine company was called I had a 50% percent reduction. I was told I had an option to purchase a daily "fee coverage" plan for a ridiculous amount of money to cover $3.15 in toll fees. I had no opportunity offered to pay the tolls when I turned in the vehicle. A simpler method would have been for Dollar to charge my cc for these toll fees but to add $15 for each fee is a total ripoff. It's just a way to screw the renter and raise the rental fee. This is criminal and should looked into by the state. No more trips to Texas for me and definitely no more Dollar rentals when I need a car.
We rented a car from Dollar and at the end had 9 tolls in Florida--which are automatic tolls and no place to pay on the road. We received a bill for $9.95 in tolls and $85 in administrative fees. I fought this charge but they did not budge. This is not only outrageous but it is a hidden fee by Dollar. DO NOT RENT FROM DOLLAR. They called this a violation and fine--give me a break. Very unethical.
We may have signed an agreement to pay all tolls and "applicable administrative fees", but when we received a bill in the mail for $6.12 in tolls and $90 for administrative fees, I find that excessive! An itemized list was enclosed that indicated 6 separate tolls: 2 instances each for $.80, $1, and $1.26. There was a $15 administrative fee tacked on for EACH toll occurrence. This company needs to specify upfront the cost incurred for the tolls if the fee is going to be over 1800%. Better yet, just state a flat rate for toll charges or limit the total amount that will be charged. We will never rent from Dollar again.
My boyfriend made a reservation for a car for 10 days in Florida. When he arrived to pick up the car, he realized his license was expired and they would not rent him the car obviously. They did not offer to refund it then and there, said he had to call it in. I called for him and was bounced around to 4 different people. The 4th person was supposedly a supervisor and he refused to issue a refund saying the reason is in the terms and conditions. Does anybody read those??? No, you just sign up to reserve the car.
After arguing for over half an hour, he still refused to issue a refund. So this company stole $182 from my boyfriend, what a horrible company they are. Their parent company is Hertz, so they will no longer receive business from me or anyone I know. They are THIEVES to keep $182 when he didn't even use a car from them. Horrible customer service, can barely understand the people they have working for them (outsourced to the Phillippines by the way). It just disgusts me that big corporations like HERTZ can get away with BS like this.
Picked up a 2018 Nissan Altima from Tampa International to drop it off at Miami International the next day and besides the $250 security fee they charge if you don't have a credit card, they charged $211 for I don't know what and over the agreed fee of 100$ for the rental for a day, they charged 62$ more even though I had paid for toll pass at the pickup as suggested by the lady there. Very annoying and unpleasant lady at the Tampa Airport desk as well. Total killjoy. Never renting from them again.
If you rent from Dollar, BIG IF, make sure the second driver is included in the rental. We did not and were forced to pay ridiculous second driver costs, never had this experience in years of car rentals when travelling. We will never use this company ever again. Read the reviews and decide for yourself... When I questioned the charges they got feisty and rude.
One should not have to be an attorney to rent a car. On 10/25/17 arrived at Dallas Airport to pick up prepaid vehicle where I was told in the State of Texas I was told I had to have additional insurance. It totaled more than the price of the vehicle. When I got home I contacted them stating when renting using M/C or Visa a person is automatically covered besides that I had explained my auto insurance covers me in continental United States and the charge was removed. I had returned the vehicle on 11/01/17 and on 12/05/17 their fine department sends me, not arriving until 12/22/17, a bill for $7.44 for using 4 toll roads driving that morning to the airport that contained little or no notification much-less gates or booths it was a toll road. The real problem here is there were $15.00 late fee attached to each one of them a totaling $60.00.
Once again I contacted them, explained my dispute. They told me it's stated in the fine print regarding tolls and fines. I also found out they subcontract the fines you receive to another company. I stated, first I rented through your company not your outsourced company, that it is your company that will receive the fallout if I am forced to pay. Secondly, how can your company take the time out to point out the extra insurance (scam) issue but not take the time to point out toll or traffic fine warnings/issues or how to check or pay timely upon vehicle return? Third How can I be charged $60.00 in late fees when I was not notified of fine until more than a month later? Lastly what proof do I have this Company Dollar has subcontracted is not paying the fines timely and assessing me the fines that are supposedly going to the State of Texas.
His answer was he cannot bring up the issue on the screen due to it is with the outsourced company but gave me a number to contact directly. WELL what do you think happened when I called the number (877) 411-4300? It prompts you to a number of Car Rental Agencies and then I pressed Dollar. It asks if you would like to check if you accessed any fines, tolls or traffic tickets while renting your vehicle. WHAT!! And this is not pointed out to you when you either start or return your Rental but the insurance scam is... I am in the process of disputing the late fee through DOLLARRENTALFINE.COM, sending a letter to both the State Attorney's Office of Texas and Dollar Corporate Headquarters. BEWARE!!! and I hope this helps others!
I rented a suburban to go to Tennessee in my vacation, in Atlanta I have a brake problem, when I got on my destination I called the customer service and they took one day to get a tow truck to get the Suburban and myself to Knoxville airport to fix the brakes, and they gave-me a Santa Fe SUV to stay until they have the Suburban fixed, this was before Christmas, I called the consumer service every day to make sure I will get the Suburban ready to go back to Orlando, in any time I accept to switch the Suburban for Santa Fe SUV. The Dollar consumer service never call me back to give me any update about the Suburban.
Every time I called them, the answer were the Suburban is not fixed yet and when that will be ready they will let me know. Now is time to going back to Orlando and Dollar rent a Car does not have the Suburban, because they already rented to somebody else. Now I have a downsized car not able to fit 5 people, one dog and all the luggage to come back to Orlando, now I have this nightmare to find a way to fix this situation because "DOLLAR RENT A CAR IN KNOXVILLE" people are crooked, dishonest, does not honor they word and they really don't care about the customer.
Rented vehicle through Europcar. Have my own insurance but they insisted I take LVS insurance for an additional cost of $ 198.00. Would have changed company if I had had the time. Never again with Dollar. (They are owned by Hertz, you would think they would be more professional.) Never again with Dollar car rental-scam artists.
I could not give this company 0 stars or minus 5, the service I had at Dollar Rent A Car which is owned by Hertz was horrible. I rented a vehicle for Thanksgiving, I got to the front desk and I told the attendant I did not require insurance since I bought it from Priceline.com which I used to do my travel arrangements. Well I got my contract, which you cannot even read in the little piece of paper they print in on. At the end of the rental they emailed me the invoice for the rental and I noticed I had been charged for insurance. I called customer service and they could not do anything over the phone, what a waste of time. I was asked to email customer relations with the proof that I had bought insurance from Priceline.com. I emailed all the stuff they requested. A week went by so I called to find out what was taking so long for my refund to be put back in my credit card. I was told that it would take 2 weeks to get solved.
I finally got an email from Hertz saying that I have a profile with them and in it states that I needed insurance, I explained to them that I told the desk attendant I will not be needing it at this time but they did not care. I was charged 100.00 for insurance and they will not refund me one penny. Do not rent from this company ever, the car smelled like an ashtray, I had to spray it with Lysol so I could drive with my family in it. The total experience with them was horrible. They are rude on the phone and put you on hold for excessive periods of time. Whatever you do don't rent from any of these companies.
When renting a car they do not warn you that each toll you go through you get a $15 fee charge that you have to pay, I went through two tolls of $1.50 each and they charged me $33. Almost as much as my car cost for the day!
I rented a car from Dollar Rent A Car. While I was on the interstate driving we hit a deer. The accident damaged the car. I placed a call to Dollar Rent A Car emergency roadside assistance. I was told that nothing could be done for me at 3:30 am because all offices were closed. They promised to help me at 7 am and asked me to call back then. I returned the call back at 7 am and was promised that by 8 am I would be picked up by Uber and rental would be towed at same time. At 11 am tow truck comes and Uber never arrives. Tow truck driver request I wait outside while he takes the rental. I refused to stay out in the cold freezing with my suitcases on the side of the road. He refused to wait 10 min and left. In the meantime I continue to wait for my ride. At 12 pm I call emergency roadside assistance and they said Uber canceled and they were having difficulties assisting me with a ride to pick up new rental.
At that time I was pleased that I did not wait outside without the rental. It was extremely cold outside. I was already inside a car without heat being that the radiator was not working from accident. At 130 pm Dollar Rent A Car called back stating that second tow truck was coming out and that this one would not only tow car but would also accommodate my family and I transportation to where a new rental would be available. Towing company arrives, yet they state they know nothing about provided us a ride and refused to take my family. They simply were here for damaged rental. I once again refused to sit out in cold weather without any idea of when I would be picked up. I re-called emergency assistance and requested help. I explained that we were cold and had no heat and they simply apologized for not being able to help us.
They stated that they simply had no way to provide us with emergency roadside assistance and that if anything changes they would call me back. It is now 130 pm I am still out in the cold awaiting for emergency roadside assistance. After multiple and multiple calls from us to Dollar Rent A Car we are still waiting with no help. This experience is absolutely horrible. If I had not refused to give up the damaged auto I would have been out in the cold on the side of the road for over 10 hours now. I would NEVER, EVER want to do any business with Dollar Rent A Car AGAIN! Please do yourself a favor STAY AWAY FROM DOLLAR RENT A CAR!
My son rented a car from Dollar while on a job interview in Dallas Texas in November 2017. Being young and naive in car rental pricing & policies he either did not understand or read the policy and waived the toll road coverage. He says he avoided the toll roads and does not remember going through any toll booths, but somehow, someway, somewhere he was on a toll road. It was a surprise when a bill came in the mail for 95 cents toll plus a $15 "administration fee" from Dollar. I'm sure other car rental companies have the same policy, but I consider this "administration fee" a scam. Dollar made $15 off of us but they will lose much more than that in the long run, as I will never rent from them again.
Rented a car from Dollar Rent A Car Virginia (Norfolk). Unfortunately for me, the airport Dollar employees didn't explain or didn't offered a EZ PASS. Wasn't aware being new that there aren't any possibility to paid to cash lane for toll roads. The city only provide EZ pass. I figured out that I will be send a bill for that via Dollar. I did received the bill, $8 for toll number one, with a "administrative fee" they called of $75. The other one bill arrived $10 with a "administrative fee" of $90. Shortly before that, even though the car was returned full of gas, I was charged $17 for the gas. Luckily me, I was able to provide the proof the car was returned full gas.
Went to Facebook message and explained the issue about the toll roads "administrative fee". The response was, "We sorry you have received a traffic violation that is the reason you must paid the administrative fee." Called the police office Norfolk, nobody was aware about any ticket. I contacted the toll roads of Norfolk, the employees told me that every car from Dollar have a EZ pass and the cost for Dollar is $1,10 monthly per car. I stopped my Amex for Dollar allowing only the cost of $18 toll roads.
A few days ago, I was very surprised to see that Dollar was allowed to remove $83 without my permission, even though the card was closed for Dollar rental car. We understood with Amex employees that Dollar rental cars used a different name "E-Z Pass toll roads". I contacted the EZ pass toll road Norfolk again. They never sent me any request to paid anything. Conclusion, Dollar rental car seems to use another name to extort more money from their clients. I am refusing to paid almost $200 administrative fee for a toll road that cost $18, which I am hundred percent sure, I never drive more than 50 miles the full week I was in Norfolk. Dollar rental cars have E-Z Pass each car. I wasn't aware about no cash lane possibility to paid. Norfolk Dollar rental cars are aware about that issue in their city, won't advice the client. That is purposely being done. Dollar rental cars using another name to access my American Express is a fraud. Be aware of that company.
They really pushed me to buy additional insurance to the point of being annoying and I declined. The windshield was chipped while I was driving. They never contacted my insurance company although I filled out the contact information for them. They only corresponded via snail mail despite me trying to call them to try to set them up with my insurance company. What I really objected to was the nearly $300 charges for loss of use and administrative fees in addition to the $519 cost of replacing the windshield. I have been told that other rental companies also add this charge. I really do not care, this is truly outrageous, next time I will consider Uber or Lyft. I will never rent from Dollar again, will try National or Enterprise based on friend's suggestions.
I rented a car from Dollar and chose not to get the exorbitantly overpriced EZ Pass from Dollar. I figured I would just pay the tolls in cash. Unfortunately, in Mass, where we rented, most tolls are toll by license and what Dollar did not tell us is that it charges $15.00 plus the amount of the toll for each toll charged to the car. If you have a $1.00 toll it costs $16.00. If you have three $1.00 tolls it costs $48.00. We paid $110.50. Hope it was worth it. Will not rent from Dollar again.
