KAYAK

Pros:

Car was relatively clean and handled the winding mountain roads. Drop off was easy. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Cons:

I reserved a full-sized SUV months in advance because we have a large group doing work at a local hospital with some equipment and gear. Reserved through ACE but the local company was called Drive-o-matic. When I arrived I was given a much smaller car and they were very annoyed when I asked to be given a car of the corresponding size and price I had already payed. Eventually she located a vehicle that would suit our group. Car not great quality compared to what I had last year when I used SIXT. Probably will not rent through ACE again.

2.0 Poor

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Poor customer service, we reserved a Jeep Liberty or similar and the lady gave us a Jimny arguing that she didn't have anything else and the only thing that she could do was giving us a refund which at that time would meant to be stucked in the airport which is 1 hour and a half far way from our hotel. Very poor customer service. The lady said that Kayak wasn't a reliable source and that she wasn't obligated to honor what the reservation said, which is unbelievable as I always use Kayak and this is the very first time that I have a situation like this.

It takes awhile to get the vehicle (45 minutes) and we were second in line. One man show and not the most efficient process. The car was fine not a full tank but didn't expect it to return full. Liked the keep left decal on the dash

Pros:

Literally nothing went right

Cons:

We made a reservation 4 months ago, showed up to pick up our car and were told they had no cars left. They ignore reservations and just give cars on a first come first served basis. They did nothing to rectify the situation, we had to pay $100 for a taxi and book another car through another company. Do not book through Avis, it was truly an awful experience
