10.0 Excellent29 Nov 2020
Pros: Amadeo was super helpful, considerate, and patient with my trying out different cars! Excellent customer service!Cons: Nothing really except if it could have been free of charge!
4.0 Okay23 Nov 2020
Pros: Not easy, wait 30 min to get the car. Car had a burned seat... So, I'll don't use this again
10.0 Excellent27 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and it was easy to drop the car off at the airport
7.6 Good24 Oct 2020
Pros: The car was clean and had plenty of bells and whistles. The process was fast and simple.Cons: Because of COVID, I was hoping for plates from New England. There was exactly one car available at my reserved price point and it had New York plates. There were plenty of cars if I cared to move up to the next level. This seemed planned.
9.6 Excellent19 Oct 2020
Cons: Drop off was unclear, but it was at a hotel and not airport or specific rental car site.
5.6 Okay16 Oct 2020
Cons: At pickup we were told by the Enterprise attendant that we had to use the automatic toll pay system that was installed in the vehicle whenever we came to a toll booth. That the toll system was all automatic and we could not pay cash, and the devise in the car would automatically pay the toll and the amount of the toll would be added to our bill. Plus Enterprise would tack on an ADDITIONAL $4 Every time we used the device. It was NOT true that we could not pay cash. We disabled the device and were able to pay cash at every toll booth location and we avoided the additional $4 Enterprise charge at each toll booth. Is it Enterprise policy to deceive their customers in this manor, or only a misinformed employee?
10.0 Excellent10 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff very friendly. Drop-off easy.
10.0 Excellent29 Sep 2020
Cons: there weren’t enough people working when i picked up the car, so it took a verrrrry long time
9.6 Excellent9 Sep 2020
Pros: Received car that I booked, rare these days!Cons: A little bit of a weird wait; standing in a line but they had tons of employees trying their best to get us what we needed. The wait was worth it as I got a Range Rover, exactly what I booked and wanted! Boom!
2.4 Mediocre8 Sep 2020
Cons: The car smelled very strongly of marijuana and even after they scent bombed it (which took forever and I was in a rush), it still smelled. They did not have another car for me, so I had to take it.

4.4 Okay23 Nov 2020
Pros: The first car I got in ran like it was missing spark plugs, and there was a woman’s purse and gloves that had been left in the backseat. The second car ran fine, when I got to my hotel and uncle Jed my seatbelt I noticed someone’s mask wrapped around the buckle.Cons: Neither car had been cleaned. Which should never be the case, but particularly when we are in the midst of a pandemic. Clean the vehicle thoroughly.
10.0 Excellent11 Nov 2020
Pros: Staff at Alamo pick up location were amazing and the customer service for extending the rental by one day was superb. Could not have had a better, smoother experience.
6.8 Good7 Nov 2020
Cons: I remember picking up rental cars years ago when they were actually washed, this apparently is NO longer the case! I have taken my last 5 rentals to a car wash myself! The interiors also leave much to be desired, found a cigarette butt in the door well of my last rental! I also disinfected the interior myself because it certainly didn’t seem that it had been done? Changing times :(
4.0 Okay28 Oct 2020
Pros: Pick up was fastCons: Well the car smelt horrible of cigarette smoke. Gave my boyfriend and I a headache every time we wanted to go somewhere which was all the time. Which there’s a no smoking policy so how does this happen? And it was way too expensive. Our flight was delayed so we didn’t get in until midnight but still had to pay for a whole day and then we dropped the car off around 5am which we were charged another whole day. $300 for 5 days with 2 days that were barely used. Never again.
8.0 Excellent26 Oct 2020
Pros: Not clear about the insurance fees or all the other little fees added.
6.4 Good21 Oct 2020
Cons: Didn’t have my car ready for pick-up, and I pre-paid for gas and Alamo still charged me as if I didn’t. Still dealing with them over this. Also, 1 congress st in Boston is EXTREMELY hard to pick-up from and drop-off. Added at least an additional 15 min on both pick-up and drop-off d/t construction in the parking garage. Definitely was not a smooth process and I was over an hour late bc of the above issues. Will not be using them again
10.0 Excellent19 Oct 2020
Pros: They let me swap when I foolishly chose an upgrade to a Ford Excursion, which is a ridiculous behemoth of a car. :-) A minivan is a lot better for driving in unfamiliar places.
8.4 Excellent19 Oct 2020
Pros: Easy pick up and drop offCons: There the cup holder had what appeared to be a beverage spill on it that I cleaned myself before starting on the road.
3.2 Mediocre17 Oct 2020
Cons: Car was old, in poor shape, was not clean and did not operate properly.

10.0 Excellent30 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and ready for us when we arrived. I got the 7 passenger vehicle I requested and it was comfortable for all of us adults. I liked the feature that I could pre-pay for a full-tank of gas at current rates that way I didn't have to fret before returning the vehicle making sure the tank was full.Cons: Our rental went smoothly, but another couple arrived at the same time we did. They had not made a car reservation before walking into the rental office...at that time there wasn't a car available for them in Boston. I'm going to make sure I always make reservations in advance.
4.4 Okay29 Jul 2020
Cons: Pick up location was closed when I arrived, had been moved to another. Due to this I was late to drop off, missed the window, and had to drop off the next morning
7.6 Good21 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff is Boston was helpful and upgraded our car quickly once we realized our rental wouldn’t be big enough. The car was clean and the sticker was a great way to indicate that we were safe to enter the vehicle.Cons: The Experience in Johnstown could have been better. There was no warning letting us know we would have to handle the drop off on our own. Signage was sparse and confusing. Had everything been included in our rental paperwork, we could have avoided a half hour of trying to figure out where to go. The airport was also closed by the time we arrived and no one was there to help us

Cons: Car reeked of smoke. Was the wrong pick up and drop off location. The Avis rep at Logan airport even admitted that they were over sold and could fill out all orders for vehicles. We were stuck with a car that smelt strongly of smoke the whole trip and we wasted extra time going to another location and having to document the smoke smell before leaving as the rental location had no ide

I had indicated on my Kayak search that I wanted BOS airport but I suppose I didn't look at the details to see that it was the location on Atlantic Ave. Not a huge deal but did have to get an Uber (or could have ridden the blue line) to get to the downtown location. Upon picking up the car on the 7th floor of the parking garage there was 1 woman working who we had to yell out for because nobody seemed to be around. She came from behind another vehicle and was on a personal phone call and had to tell the person on the phone that she'd "call you back because I have a customer". Not a huge deal I suppose but not the greatest of customer service that the person on the counter downstairs should have called up to the 7th floor to indicate we were coming. The car on the other hand smelled like marijuana inside. Not completely reeking of it but definitely could tell someone had smoked in it somewhat recently. I indicated this to the woman upstairs who said that she would note it and credit my account however nothing has come through indicating any credit. We were in a hurry because of the location mix up so didn't have time to potentially swap cars and the woman did not offer that up any way.

9.2 Excellent21 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff were all fantastic!! And the vehicle was very nice.Cons: The vehicle was great, only there were some minor cleanliness issues. Not well detailed, sales paperwork glue on the window and driver door frame, advertising marker still on the windshield. I also would have been super grateful (and wouldn't have needed to extend our lease) if there was a pickup option for 'drop-off'. I had an unexpected scenario, needing to take my elderly father to drop off the rental. Not living far, it was a risk and hassle, not your fault but.. well, you're asking.. I'm sharing. Anyway, all was ok.
2.8 Mediocre21 Jun 2020
Cons: Specific about time. Would have been nice to know that location I chose closed. Had to get another car from different location and ended up paying a whole lot more. Trying to get a hold of someone yo help me and nobody seemed to understand my situation. I kept getting the run around very frustrating

Cons: We had a family Medical Emergency (father had to be airlifted from Marthas Vineyard Hospital to Boston for emergency surgery) and had to drop off our rental car at Oak Bluffs Marthas Vineyard instead of Hyanis Port. Called Corporate and they still charged me $500+ for the changed location fee. Unexceptable in my book to charge this fee for a family emergency...... Brian Boyt 310-308-0755

9.2 Excellent21 Aug 2020
Pros: First car smelled strongly of marijuana. Second car was given to me very quickly, was bigger, and was very cleanCons: Better QA of the vehicles before allowing customers to pick one up
3.2 Mediocre18 Aug 2020
Pros: I rented a carCons: The entire experience. The location is a mechanic and the Budget sign is extremely small you can’t even see it. Also, there is no organization and the lot is very small with too many cars! You have to remove 1 car and then go find parking for it on the street and then get the car you rented out. Way too much chaos.
7.6 Good10 Aug 2020
Cons: waited in line for 1.5 hours for pick up. Only two people working. When I got to the counter the clerk was incredibly quick and apologetic for the wait but there should have been more people on staff to help.

Cons: My trip was cancelled due to Covid and I was unable to either change dates or cancel so I lost my money. I will avoid using this site for future bookings. Dianne Ryan
8.0 Excellent26 Oct 2020
Cons: The toll package is crazy, we paid $1 to get out of Massachusetts, coming back in we hit that toll with no cash, but it’s only 1.50 it’s a really bad place to have a toll and it should just be included! Especially since there is a toll receiver on the car.
2.0 Mediocre27 Sep 2020
Cons: The airline canceled our flights, we couldn't use the car but were charged anyway.
6.8 Good12 Sep 2020
Pros: Staff were lovely but Kayak said it was $144 when it was $557. They missold me insurance for $11 a day that turned out to be invalid on Thrifty’s cars. It was a criminal transaction all around.Cons: Be honest for god’s same you criminals. Everything was sold incorrectly from the day rate of rental to the insurance to the type of car. I was flabbergasted at your behaviour.
2.0 Mediocre7 Sep 2020
Cons: Had to cancel my reservation 2 Months ago due to a wedding cancellation because of Covid. Thrifty told me that I can submit an appeal to get my money back but would not be told the outcome until after my reservation date. Ridiculous!

Pros: Minivans are great and a reasonable priceCons: The van we rented had a Rejection sticker as it’s inspection sticker - also the van smelled strongly of smoked marijuana when we picked it up.
9.2 Excellent6 Jul 2020
Pros: Staff was very nice when I rented it. There was no staff when I returned the car as it was 4 in the morning. No problem.Cons: it should not have cost so much just because it was summer in New England. Over $500 for a week was too much but I had no choice.

Pros: Friendly serviceCons: We received a smaller mid size car then what we booked and it made it tough to fit luggage.
2.0 Mediocre27 Oct 2020
Pros: The vehicle was given to us in a very unsafe condition. The front tires were completely bald, one came apart while we were driving, stranding us in Bangor, Maine early on a Sunday morning. We spent 2.5 hours on hold on the phone trying to get roadside service. No one ever came on the line. Three times we were disconnected and had to get in the cue again. We finished our 1,200 mile trip with no spare and a bad tire in both rain and snow. I travel extensively and will never use Dollar again,Cons: Better maintenance and customer service.
7.6 Good26 Oct 2020
Pros: Drop off and pick up was really easy! The car was clean on the inside. I felt like I got a good value for the price.Cons: I was charged a $200 deposit and I wasn't warned. I couldn't use my credit card because it had my maiden name and my ID had my married name. So I had to use my bank card. A surprise $200 hold on my bank card wasn't a pleasant surprise.

7.6 Good1 Sep 2020
Pros: The process at the counter and the actual drop off were both quick and painless.Cons: Getting out of the rental car facility is a nightmare. It took a while for someone to appear and clear us to leave.
4.0 Okay29 Aug 2020
Cons: You guys really screwed me over with the hidden fees - I thought my rental would cost ~$150.00, but it was well over $200.00. Going forward, I'll just go directly to the rental agency.
9.2 Excellent25 Aug 2020
Cons: Better information before car pickup about what the toll and EZpass options.
4.4 Okay22 Jul 2020
Cons: If you think your dollar rental is going to cost you $130, budget for at least $350 because you will be slammed with extra, hidden fees at every step of the process (initial payment, when picking up the car, dropping off the car) etc. DO NOT book with Budget unless you want to pay more than twice the advertised price.

Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: Pickup and drop-off at Logan Car Rental is really difficult in terms of knowing where to go in. It's very confusing. Once I actually found the appropriate areas, the process with Payless was great.
7.2 Good10 Sep 2020
Pros: Upgraded from compact car to a Mitsubishi Outlander, which was the only positive of our experience.Cons: 20+ minute wait in line at Boston Logan, on top of 40+ minutes just for the associate to help us?!!! Their name tag said they’d been there for 15 years, but they were slow as molasses and had no care for us and did not make me feel valued. There were no Payless reps at their airport (what?!!!), so a random other person had to try and come help. When we FINALLY got our car over an hour later, we drove it 2 miles only to have an emergency notification come on saying “Pull over safely. Car will stop soon” WTF?! So we drove back, got back in line and waited 40+ minutes to be helped by another terrible associate who didn’t care about us. Once we finally got our second car, it was 2+ hours later and no one even apologized for the inconvenience. I already called customer service, and they said “oh okay we will get back to you in a minimum of 5 days”
2.4 Mediocre17 Aug 2020
Pros: Nothing great. Car worked fine that’s about it.Cons: Car smelled like cigarettes and pick up process was terrible
2.8 Mediocre10 Aug 2020
Pros: The price was the only positive thing about this rental experience.Cons: The car reeked of cigarettes and the seats had been spilled on with some sort of dark liquid. It took forever to get a customer service rep on the phone, I filed a complaint, and all I received in response was an e-mail saying they were sorry they had disappointed me.
5.2 Okay18 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff was fine and gave me an upgrade to a larger vehicle at the same rate, which was nice.Cons: There were literally more than $84 in after-booking fees above and beyond the advertised total price, before including the optional insurance and toll pass -- in the end I paid three times the advertised price. Customer service was also very slow, not that I begrudge the employees there, just they were very understaffed. The car smelled like cigarette smoke that had been poorly covered up with cologne.

Waited 30 minutes before an Avis representative took pity on us. He, some how, was able to process our rental. At return there was no representative in the garage, only at the counter inside.

2.0 Mediocre10 Feb 2020
Pros: Unfortunately, there was no chance for me to like anything as E-Z did not have my reservation on file. I spent over an hour at the counter looking to see if the order was wrongfully placed for a different day, if it was set for a different pickup location, or if the rental company had been changed (I individually checked with Alamo, Advantage, Hertz, Enterprise, and more) to unfortunately find out there no company had my reservation on file. By the time the entire ordeal was done, and the option was to reserve a new car, we were so late that we decided to completely change plans and not rent a car for the day. This put extreme stress on myself with family visiting town and I am incredibly frustrated with this experience. Please contact me at mpbrooks16@gmail.com or (708) 212-6034 to advise next steps - I kindly ask to be refunded for both the car rental and the insurance policy as neither were used.

6.4 Good3 Jan 2020
Cons: The signage for the desk was difficult to find, the car exterior was dirty including windows and mirrors. The gas wasn t full and was low about 100 miles, I filled it a day later and drove that far before gauge returned to the point where I picked it up
4.8 Okay13 Dec 2019
Pros: Staff at counter was good, requested a vehicle with "in" state tags. Was told the vehicle had "Massachusetts tags".... it did not, then the gentleman in garage fought with me when I got to the vehicle with "Virginia tags!!!"..... He was very rude and he had 6 vehicles of same model with "Massachusetts tags" but wouldn't let me switch!!!! Ridiculous.....Cons: Using another rental company bc upon returning the vehicle I couldnt find anyone to check me out???? So I proceeded to the rental counter and NO ONE there either at 730am in the morning, it's been a few days and yet to recieve my receipt..... Last time I will use a second rate rental company, I travel for a living and if your a businessman dont use EZ car rentals!!!!
4.8 Okay26 Oct 2019

Returning the car was super simple.

Top tips for renting a car in Boston

  • Rent a car during your stay in Boston and gain ultimate flexibility to explore not only the vibrant city but also the surrounding areas while you’re there, such as Connecticut or New Hampshire. Opting for a rental car will make trips to destinations further out of the city center far easier, for instance the Foxboro Football Stadium, which is 28 miles from Boston and by car can be conveniently reached in half an hour.
  • Boston International Airport has a Car Rental Center which features a 4-level garage for the abundance of cars on offer and can be reached by the airport’s free shuttle service. The shuttle bus leaves from all terminals every 5-6 minutes. The buses can be found at the lower level of every terminal and are blue and white. In the Rental Center, there are various different rental services including Zipcar, Entertainment, Avis or E-Z Rent-A-Car, so it should be no hassle to find the perfect ride to further destinations.
  • Boston has a lot of traffic and navigating yourself through the many intersections can be confusing at times, however navigation systems can be easily added to a rental car and this will help you reach further destinations without any problems. Boston’s pedestrians are known to jaywalk and cyclists regularly don’t adhere to the traffic light regulations, so paying extra attention and double-checking for pedestrians and cyclists while driving is very important.
  • Boston is one of the cities with the worst rush hour in the US, so try to avoid it by going to your destination before or after (rush hour is most intense approximately between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays). Especially the intersections along Interstate 93 and the Route 128 are known to be clogged with traffic and should be avoided during rush hour times altogether if possible, as alternative side roads are also congested during these times. Also bear in mind that winters can bring snow and ice to Boston, and you should drive extra carefully.
