Fox Rental Car Complaint - Not Worth The Time
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- Wow. DO NOT go to FOX in San Francisco. I waited over an hour in line before reaching the counter. Service was fine; I just did not plan for 1.5 hours to get a rental car and therefore was late to an appointment. Upon returning the vehicle, the check-in person could not help me with an issue so he kindly referred me back to the front desk. Folks who were waiting in line were audibly disgruntled at their wait and since I had to catch a flight, I asked the first person in line if I could jump in and try and get a small issue resolved. They agreed and I proceeded to wait 20 minutes for an available agent at the front of the line. I could not wait any longer and I ended up leaving. Who knows how much longer everyone else in line had to wait.
I overheard someone saying that FOX gets a lot of volume due to their great prices. a) great prices are not worth a 1.5 hour wait at the front-end and another fruitless 20-minute wait upon return and b) plenty of other counters had a high-volume of customers in line - the difference is that other agencies got the people through quickly, so I don't buy it. I'd pay an extra $10 a day to get efficient service.
Additionally, I called their customer service line this morning, since I couldn't get my issue resolved at the airport. I waited another 30 minutes to speak with someone over the phone.
