While on vacation, we rented a car from National Car Rental. One day, we thought that we might have gone through a toll, without paying for it. We noted that the toll was $1. When we checked the car ... read full review5 Replies - Latest reply on 07/09/2009

Bogus damage on rental car

I arranged my car rental through AUTOEurope and got the best quote from National so I took the reservation and paid. When I arrived at Shannon Airport in Ireland they said we have no cars but told me that Hertz would honor the same rate. That was not true. Yes Hertz had a car but they did not honor the rate. It took 3 months after my vacation to get a partial refund through my credit card company. When I brought this to the attention of National/Alamo they said my problem was not with them. They took no responsibity at all for not having a car available despite the fact that I made a reservation. They took no responsibility for sending me to Hertz with a business card from the lady at National noting that she was sending me and they should take care of me. Last but not least they never even considered to apologize. I did write to customer service at National but they replied that my problem was with Hertz. They do not recognize they caused the problem. Being a global company I would have expected them to say that they are sorry for your trouble and give a discount voucher against the next rental. Customer Service is not their motto nor is customer satisfaction. The moral of the story reservations mean nothing at National / Alamo car rental.Add reply

Worst Customer Service
ANYWHERE -- I am an Emerald Card member and rented National many times. Most of my travel was at regular times and I had no issue. In fact enjoyed the free upgrade you receive when you select a type of car. However, ... read full review3 Replies - Latest reply on 10/05/2012
I filed a complaint on Nationals Web Site about the poor service of Kevin (aka supervisor) at the National Car Rental location in Palm Springs only to receive an "auto response". My auto response to National is I will NEVER rent a car from National again. As an FYI, I have rented on average 26 times in the past 12 months from National and Hertz is more than happy to take on my patronage. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 10/11/2011Add reply

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND -- I am amazed at how this company is in business. I would rather cancel my reservation all together, however I can't because I have already. They have horrible customer service skills.

They are the biggest cheaters I've ever come across. They lie on your face. My worst experience ever.
I had no other option this time round so had to take the car from them but never again in my lifetime.
I'd totally discourage anyone to go with National.
JFK AIRPORT, NEW YORK -- After a long flight I finally got to the Federal Circle station where many of the rental places are. Expect very slow service - maybe 30 minutes or more to get a car. My car was none too clean, but at least it ran fine. But coming back to return it with a lot of luggage was a nightmare. No help whatever from staff to get the luggage 100 yards to the hotel shuttles. A cart rental costs $5.00, but was inconveniently located and did not accept credit cards. Compared with car rental at other US airports, not to mention European, the service represents a real embarrasssment as a welcome to the USA. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 07/30/2010Add reply
