10.0 Excellent1 Feb 2019
Pros: Pickup and drop off was quick and easy.
2.0 Mediocre18 Sep 2018
Poor trainingCons: My flight was delayed and when I called I was informed that the counter would stay open for me. Upon arrival, they were closed. When I called I was informed that the prior representative I spoke to before my flight left didn't get my flight information. I went with a different company and we were able to enjoy our trip!!
10.0 Excellent13 Jul 2018
exactly as promisedPros: I reserved online for a cadillac or similar model. When I got there there were three to choose from and I selected the Cadillac SUV. Great service too.
7.2 Good25 Jun 2018
Alamo doesn’t honor extra day charges with contractPros: Car was clean and functional. The on-site staff was friendly.Cons: I needed to extend the rental agreement by several days (3) due to a family hospital visit/illness. Despite the extra days of charges listed on the contract at $63 base per day, Alamo tried to jack up the base rate to $105 per day. How about honoring a contract? turned the car back in and used Uber instead on principal alone.
6.0 Good3 Jun 2018
Change in travel plans no problemPros: Easy to get through to talk with someone about a change in our reservation

Counter Agent MaureenPros: The counter agent Maureen was excellent...she gave us destination directions that saved us alot of time and tolls.Cons: Their was only one agent at the desk when we arrive at the 5:00pm busy time. We waited quite a while for counter service.
7.2 Good18 Apr 2018
Cons: The minivan especially in the back had not been cleaned.
6.0 Good12 Apr 2018
Too many surprises with AlamoCons: 1. I was charged for a second driver although National (the same company) does not charge for a colleague from the same company. 2. When we picked up the car, and couldn't get the back hatch open, the attendant directed us to another SUV, for which I was charged more than the original rental.
10.0 Excellent10 Apr 2018
Pros: Good options on Gas Refill Was a bit early to pick up and late to return without any problems Fast and friendly service

8.8 Excellent9 Dec 2019
Pros: Good service. No wait times.Cons: many people would probably be happy with my experience, but not so much for me. I was upgraded from a sedan to our SUV at no charge. Did not know that’s what I was getting. Just not my personal preference, plus it cost two or three times as much for gasoline. Other than that, great experience

2.0 Mediocre10 Jan 2021
Pros: Pick-up, drop off was fineCons: I got a flat tire. I was stranded for 9 hours until service arrived to help. Multiple calls to Dollar Roadside assistance resulted in waiting on hold for 4 hours. Use a more reputable car dealership.

EZ Pass Nightmate and False AdvertisingPros: The car was cleanCons: Dollar and Kayak advertised a Toyota RAV4 or similar. However , when they did not have that available and I inquired, the rude woman kept yelling over me “OR SIMILAR.” She said they actually don’t even have almost any Toyota’s. Then why advertise it? She said I got an even better car with an upgrade. What she meant was they gave me a larger, crappier car that takes more gas because they didn’t have the inventory for the size car I wanted. She then told us our route had at least 4 tolls in every leg of our trip. She was impatient as we tried to confirm this on google maps, and we ended up buying the EZ Pass for a daily $15.99 charge. We got to the tolls and the device did not work. I called Dollar and they told me to pay for them myself and it would be handled when I returned the car. Thankfully there were only 2 tolls total in our whole trip, so the woman was either mistaken or lied. However, Dollar then told me that EZ Pass is a different company so it’s my problem. The attendant at Akron actually yelled over me. He told me it’s mh problem because they are Dollar, not EZ Pass, so I need to call EX Pass. Thankfully, the other attendant was pleasant and listened, and they refunded the daily charge. What a ridiculous rental experience. I’m renting with Enterprise next time. I’ve never had an issue with them.
9.6 Excellent25 Aug 2018
Pros: Great price and quick, easy pick-up and returnCons: There were some bits of food in the back seat from the previous renters. No manual in the glovebox.

6.0 Good30 Nov 2020
Cons: A $200.00 deposit was required when I rented the vehicle (I was informed the deposit would be credited when I returned the vehicle.). When I returned the vehicle a day early, clean and without damage I was not given a receipt (paper or email.) Here we are 5 days later and no sign of my deposit. Disappointing.
6.4 Good6 Oct 2020
Pros: The priceCons: The vehicle that was found and reserved through Kayak was not actually available at the location. Offered an alternate minivan at same price, but it would have cost more in gas for me to use it. Had to find another location that had the appropriate size vehicle and would honor the Kayak price. Original location was not helpful in finding another as they stated that each location was individually owned/operated and they couldn't guarantee anything.
7.6 Good5 Oct 2020
Cons: Vehicle was very dirty on outside. Windshield very dirty on inside. For the money you pay for a “premium” SUV, it should be clean. I had to take it to a car wash and shine the tires.
5.6 Okay3 Oct 2020
Cons: There are very few agents, rental counter at Pittsburgh this closed and the signs directing you to the competitor counter to check in are not clear. Then you wait outside for 30mins to be helped to your car. It took 90 mins for me to get from baggage claim to leaving the rental car garage.

5.6 Okay24 Nov 2020
Pros: Pickup was easy and fast. Lot attendant at Pittsburgh was great. In DRY weather car was great to drive.Cons: When it started to rain, car went from dream car to CHRISTINE. I could not go over 55 MPH on 79 because car would hydroplane and my wife had a panic attack because it was so bad. The front tires were barely legal. The windshield wipers were worn out so it gave a blur the whole time driving. Drop off in Arcade could have been faster.
9.2 Excellent24 Nov 2020
Pros: The staff was helpful. The rental location and my car were clean. COVID safety protocols were in place.Cons: The rental location was rather small and the cars are tightly packed into the small lot which made it difficult to leave and enter the lot.

Pros: In Dulles dropping off, it was a breeze. Quick review of the car and did not delay us for our flight.Cons: In PIT, there were two of us in line. The service gal, very nice, was super slow and it sounded as though the people in front of us were just hating away with small talk and face time, yes face time with the customer while the rest of us watched and waited. It took almost an hour to help two guests. Not to mention with a very hot temp in a garage with an infant... doesn’t make it pleasurable.

Not the car we wantedPros: Thrifty employees were helpful and friendly.Cons: Getting a Jeep instead of a Rav4. The Jeep was gutless and a gas guzzler. It was also bigger than we wanted. The overhead lights didn’t work - apparently there’s a dashboard setting that turns them off but they should be on when the car is rented out. We spent the whole trip groping around for stuff in the dark.

Pros: Drop off in Seattle was extremely easy and fast. The car (Kia Soul) was very comfortable, spacious, and drove well.Cons: Pick up in Pittsburgh took longer than expected as the car could not be located initially. Also, I was under the impression that tolls were included, but found out while going through a toll that that was not the case and the check in person did not let me know that.
10.0 Excellent27 Sep 2020
Pros: Personable staff at pickup & drop off. Easy drop off procedure. No hard sell on upgrades/options at pick up.Cons: More options for available vehicles in the class reserved.
6.8 Good9 Sep 2020
Pros: I had apparently made a mistake and rented from the wrong location. I thought I was picking up from Pittsburgh International Airport, but I wasn't. The lady at the avis counter at the airport, was not the friendliest or most helpful, but but I chatted with someone online he at least kinda helped. Once we finally got to the place we needed to be (45 minutes away) the lady at the Mount Pleasant Avis was great. Very friendly, able to help me switch my drop off location, and sent me on my way, after a long process of trying to get to the correct spot.Cons: The rental car, we ended with a a Toyota 4 runner, which was great, it was an upgrade to what we were getting, because they had nothing else available. The only thing that was terrible about the rental car itself, the smell of cigarette smoke, it was horrible. I went and bought airfresheners to try and help the smell. Im sure there are policies of not smoking in the cars, if there is not, probably should be. If people are still smoking in them, maybe the airing out process or something needs to be longer or something.
5.2 Okay30 Jul 2020
Cons: My afternoon reservation was confirmed until close. When I arrived, busy office was down to 2 cars. So I'm thankful I was told correctly. It would help everyone to have 2 employees on desk on Friday and Saturday. ******* My drop off.... Car had flat .had to be towed. That was 7/25. I received "reminder" automatic call 7/29 to "RETURN THE CAR ! "... Nothing had been communicated. I HAVE NOT GOTTEN MY SECURITY DEPOSIT BACK YET....As they cannot "close the rental out" until back at branch ......They are responsible to pick it up!!

Pros: Kayak sucks... Avis sucks too! Avis did not honor the contract and told me it did not exist. You suck honestly...
2.0 Mediocre30 Jul 2019
Pros: The Staff was fine. The problem was that the rental car reservation was for a different place than the Pittsburgh airport where we needed it. I do not know how this happened. The result is that I had to cancel the reservation and rent from a competitor who offered a much better rate than Avis.Cons: Since this type of error happens frequently, I think the staff should be prepared for it and supply a competitive rate to rent the car.

9.6 Excellent27 Nov 2017
Pros: Pretty seamless pick up and drop off even though it was busy.Cons: Rates seemed a little high for a Pittsburgh rental. It was a Holiday weekend but comparing to the same time last year it was high.
10.0 Excellent7 Sep 2017
Good experiencePros: The rental process was painless and quick. The people were friendly and courteous. The rental area is really convenient due to it being right outside of the baggage claim area. This doesn't have anything to do with Avis specifically, but it made for an easier rental experience with Avis in Pittsburgh. The car was better than I expected, in good shape, etc. The return process was easy and fast.Cons: Nothing that I can think of.

No agent at the counter at 6AM for reservationPros: Was upgraded to a great car, an Audi Q3 SUV. Made the long drive from Pittsburgh to Boston pretty comfortable. Thanks for that.Cons: There was no ticket agent at the National counter at 6AM. Had to go out to the garage to find someone.

Easy and quick!Pros: Checking in at the counter was super easy - drivers license, a question about fueling the car and another about insurance and we were done at the counter! No pressure to ourchas ethe insurance. Easy access to the car out of one of the airport doors. Had a couple of minivans to choose from. Returning the car was even easier, pull in, let them check the mileage and the fuel level, and receipt in hand. They had luggage carts for us to use at no charge. Highly recommend!

Top tips for renting a car in Pittsburgh

  • Pittsburgh has a lot to offer, from its Andy Warhol Museum to the Sandcastle Water Park and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. What better way to explore every dream destination than with a hire car? The flexibility that comes from renting a car will also allow travelers to explore other attractions like the Pittsburgh Zoo, which is located in the northeast of the city, or to be in the city center quickly when coming from the airport, which is situated over 20 miles from the center of Pittsburgh.
  • The easiest and most convenient way is to rent a car at Pittsburgh International Airport upon arrival. With hire service desks from companies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz located at the Baggage Claim area in the Landside Terminal, a hire car is just a stone’s throw away and will bring you into Pittsburgh in about half an hour.
  • Unlike many other American cities, Pittsburgh is not fully structured according to a road grid; therefore, navigating through the streets may be confusing at first. Simply ask for a satnav when renting the car and follow the instructions. Also be aware that construction sites are common in Pittsburgh, so make sure to look out for them and circumnavigate accordingly. Downtown streets tend to be narrow, so be careful when driving through them.
  • Try to avoid driving through Pittsburgh during rush hour, which starts as early as 4 am in the morning for people are commuting to the airport to catch flights into other cities. It usually lasts until 10 am; during this time, the I-376 E can be clogged up and traffic is severely increased. Between 3 and 6 pm, the afternoon rush hour starts due to workers returning to their homes, and if possible, these peak times should be avoided. Especially when going to the airport, make sure to plan plenty of time ahead (at least 2 hours).
  • Book your rental car in Pittsburgh at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Premium rental cars in Pittsburgh are around 28% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Pittsburgh has narrow lanes and many construction sites, so opting for a smaller or compact car is a wise choice, as navigating through the city becomes considerably easier -- plus, it uses less gas. For extra storage, pick a small SUV or minivan. Especially when visiting during the cold season, choose a 4-wheel drive car to ensure optimal road grip.

  • Don’t go over 20 mph in residential areas and always look out for posted signs. Urban freeways allow only up to 40 mph, whereas general freeways let drivers go up to 65 mph. Especially in the winter, it is crucial to adapt the speed to the weather and road conditions.

  • Street parking in Pittsburgh is usually metered, so check the time restrictions and pay the required amount to avoid towing or fines. Alternatively, there are some municipal or private parking lots where cars can be parked overnight or for a longer period of time, like the 7th Street Garage, First Avenue Garage, or 9th and Penn Garage.
