Pros: Alamo provided a wonderful service and I will definitely book directly with them in the future
Pros: The staff were very helpful
Cons: So hard to find the rental office
Pros: From start to finish - faultless. The lovely chap we spoke to in Edinburgh (originally from Rochdale) was fantastic. Sorted us out quickly and without fuss. Didn’t make me feel like I was about to get hustled, or some “extras” were going to come back and bite me on the bum. He was great. Our train was cancelled so we just wanted to get home and he made sure it happened. So much so, I would consider hiring a car much more often, in future.
Pros: There was no issues with the car
Cons: My initial deposit paid online was not taken into account as it didn’t show up in Alamo’s system. Was told to contact discovercars
Pros: Easy to find. The staff is very kind
Cons: Condition of cars - only the 3rd car we got replacement actually served us for vacation
Pros: Seamless booking experience
