Horrible
Cons: First of all, it was the scariest place ever. There was a giant room with one guy creepily sitting there waiting for people to come in. Second, my car wasn't ready...so they just gave me whatever was in the lot at the time. Which was NOT what I paid for.

Pros: The car was clean, comfortable and fun to drive. The staff at the rental center was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: We were surprised to find that the car rental center was across the street from the airport. No shuttle was offered to us, so we had to walk with our suitcases across the parking lot and cross a very busy street. We were very fortunate to arrive at 6:02 p.m. because the staff was just closing up.

Hertz would not honor quoted price
Pros: The vehicle was fine, checking in and out quick and easy.
Cons: I had a printed quote of $270, which I brought with me. I had called 7 days prior to the rental to confirm everything, INCLUDING the price. All agreed with what I had been quoted. However, upon arrival the manager refused to honor my quoted price, instead charging me $380. I cannot recommend Hertz when there are so many other rental options available

HLE is the way to go!
Pros: The HLE is well within walking distance of airport! Even with luggage! It is just across the parking lot on the other side of the rental cars less than a quarter mile. Great service and no wait!
Cons: So part of this is my fault but I went to the airport hertz which wasn't the one I booked my car from but instead of telling me the guy proceeded to go on with the reservation. He then said balance due 60 dollars. I said I already paid and he then mentioned that I rented from the HLE and that there were convenience fees and more taxes than the HLE. This would have been some good info at the beginning. Oh, did I mention the HLE was less than 2 blocks away, walking? I then walked to the HLE and saved that 60 dollars and the service there from the manager was amazing.

What do you mean no minivan!
Pros: Angela was great. She was patient and worked with me
Cons: I reserved a minivan. I had children with me on this trip. The mini van would have been ideal. I feel hertz did not have one available when I made the reservation, but went ahead and promised me one. It was disappointing.

Not happy
Pros: The cost was appealing, but not in retrospect It was clean, it just smelled
Cons: -The car smelled musty with a bad odor -We were not correctly informed about the toll receiver in the car for Canada and did not use it and the charges are pending (with all the fees for a) not using the receiver and b) having to track down the car by license plate) -We had to wait in a long line to get the receipt for the car after returning it - other rental companies just print it at the car when you return -It was advertised as a "intermediate SUV" - the 2 adults in the back were squished and we could not get all out luggage in

Pros: The sport version is super cool and comfortable.

Created issues in snow and rain. Car smelled of strong air freshener for first two days then underlying smell of cigarettes appeared.

Budget cancelled my reservation
Cons: I booked through Kayak, with correct timing according to my flight arrival and departure times. I received multiple confirmations about my reservation from both Budget and Kayak. When I arrived at my destination, Budget had cancelled my reservation. Much to my frustration, the Budget employee "assisting" me did nothing to resolve this issue. Their suggestion was to rebook with them at a completely different rate (original rate $11.99 per day to almost $45 per day) or try another rental agency. I moved to Alamo and could not have made a better decision! I will do everything in my power to avoid using Budget in the future and share my experience with others to help them make an informed decision.

Buffalo to Albany with local radio
Pros: car had okay handling, great gas mileage.
Cons: Pickup was okay, only one person on hand so took a while for him to ready the car. Phones ringing endlessly while he did. I requested an XM radio. I should have requested an ACTIVATED XM radio, because this one wasn't. had to hunt for local stations through lousy radio reception all the way across new york.

Disappointed in Kayak and Enterprise
Cons: I booked online and booked a one way. Pick up Buffalo, drop off Syracuse, NY. The agent at the airport informed me my rental was for their downtown location. I spent $35 for a taxi ride to get my vehicle. I was never given an option to choose a location. Once there I was asked if I wanted to upgrade for a couple of dollars more per day for a Tahoe. Since a nor'easter was coming I agreed. I had to wait a while while they cleaned the vehicle but was told to bring it back empty on fuel to make up for my wait. Once driving with the heat on I smelled a strong nasty odor that never went away for the whole rental. The snow was combining down hard within a few hours and I was looking to put it in all wheel drive only to find out it was a two wheel drive Tahoe. I had reserved a smaller class SUV 4wheel drive to begin with. This vehicle was not good for traction in the inclement weather I was involved in. The icing on the cake was when I got to Syracuse and called to find out what time the airport location opened, I was told that my return was for another location and I would be charged $25 to drop at the airport. I'm very disappointed in Kayak not making clear pick up and drop off locations and on the vehicle I received.

Cons: When we rented, it said Buffalo airport. When we got there, they said the rental place is a 1/2 hour away. They didn't help us at all. The rental contract said, "shuttle" from the airport.

Horrible Customer Service
Pros: New Cars
Cons: The managers/assistant managers behavior. The fact that I, being 19 years old, can't drive when my car is in servicing. I need to have a valid credit card under my name, I need to pay 23$ per day for being "underage". The car is being rented for 2-4 months making the total underage cost to be: $1,380-$2,760. I am covered under insurance and have a valid driver license with no fine or accidents on record. If I am leaving a car for servicing, the dealership pays for the rental vehicle ONLY. What's the point of having a rental vehicle when I can't drive it.

It was terrible! Enterprise did not have a car for me.
Pros: Absolutely Nothing!!!!!
Cons: Enterprise did not have a car for me when I arrived. They said it would take over an hour to get a car transferred from another location....and then told me the price would double, since they would have to bring a car from another location...and the prices were different at the other location. I was so upset, I walked out and got a taxi. The Enterprise rep told me I should never rent s. At from a third party site like Kayak....because often times Enterprise can really honor that price. I'm so upset at Kayak and Enterprise!!

Pros: The price was right and a real bargain compared to rental at the airport.
Cons: However, I was booked and sold a pickup time at the closing time of the Enterprise agency office (6pm). This would not work--I called Entrprise and they said no way. I am glad I called, but sad that I was allowed to book an unmanageable time. I had to cancel.

Cons: When we got to the airport around 8p we tried to call the company and got a guy's outgoing cell phone voicemail with the name of a different company that had something to do with car renting. They had no shuttles and no one at the airport had heard of the company. We ended up just renting from another company because their Yelp! page said they were closed. Doesn't seem like a full service operation or a viable option for car rental in Buffalo.

Pros: Wound up with a Chrysler 200, which was a little nicer than expected.

Ace Rental
Pros: The price was right for an economy Mazda. We did get a ride to the airport when we dropped the car off. Drop off was at night, so the keys were put in a drop box, very easy.
Cons: Ace is not in the airport, they are located in a hotel lobby across the highway from the airport. When we landed, no one was at the desk to pick us up to get the car. We had to walk to the hotel and had to wait for the rep to show up.

Awful, do not use
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Truly an awful experience. Called for the shuttle, walked to the "glass wall" only to see the shuttle fly by 10 min later. Called again, guy came back, flagged him down and told we were in the wrong spot. Finally got to the rental location - didn't have the car I rented. Instead got a smaller one that was absolutely filthy, no gas in it and windshield wipers that didn't work. Did receive a $50 refund but need to keep following up to ensure it gets refunded. Just an awful experience. Stay away from using this company

Miserable
Pros: No shuttle came to pick me up. Answering machine when I tried to call them. When I did reach someone they promised someone was on the way to pick me up and take me to my rental car. No one ever came. I had to call Uber. They charged my credit card anyway. I’m fighting the charge with help of my credit card company.

Top tips for renting a car in Buffalo

  • There is a lot to love about Buffalo in upstate New York and renting a car will give you the ability to see and do the most during your trip. If you are planning on making the short 25-mile drive north to Niagara Falls, a car will not only help you arrive quicker than public transport, but will also give you the opportunity to arrive early in the morning to avoid crowds of tourists. If you plan on watching a Buffalo Bills game, having access to a car will make the event far more enjoyable, as New Era Field is located on the outskirts of town and most easily accessed by the NY-5 Highway.
  • Buffalo Niagara International Airport is host to a number of major car hire companies with plenty of options to help make your decision easy. Browse the thorough list to find the company that best suits your needs using KAYAK, then simply proceed from the baggage claim across the road to the car hire counters to pick up the keys. If you are planning on heading straight to Niagara Falls, consider stopping by the wineries to enjoy the small village charm that Niagara-on-the-Lake has to offer.
  • The fresh climate and dense parklands around Buffalo make it a popular city for cycling and other leisure activities. Be mindful of bike lanes and cyclists you share the road with; it is always best to provide more room than you think is necessary to create a safer environment.
  • If you are not used to driving in the snow and are planning a trip to Buffalo, it is smart to familiarize yourself with some winter driving tips sooner rather than later. Heavy snowfall is common in Buffalo during the winter months and it is important that you regularly check the latest weather forecast using radio or online resources. Snow on the roads will mean that your tires have less traction, making it more important than ever to brake early and reduce speed. It is also not advisable to use cruise control in any vehicle while there is snow on the roads.
  • Book your rental car in Buffalo at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
