Advantage Rental Car Mini Review

I didn’t think Advantage was that bad, except for their confusing gas fee. They pre-charge you their rate for filling the tank up at the end of your trip, then take that amount off your credit card if you bring the car back full. I didn’t understand this and almost got into a shouting match with the desk agent because I thought he was trying to swindle me, until another customer leaned over and said she’d just had the same misunderstanding cleared up. However, I didn’t get hassled when I declined all the extra insurance.

The other negative is, their corner of the parking lot is extremely remote and not well marked at all. Otherwise, the price couldn’t be beat, the car was brand new, and the people were friendly.

    Totally agree with this assessment! We used Advantage for our anniversary trip in March 2012 and threw caution into the wind when booking them through AAA. When our flight arrived some time after midnight (ack!), we had the same concerns regarding the gas fees and whatnot. They saw that we were exhausted and stressed and the kind gentleman working the counter gave us a free upgrade. We had a brand new Chevy Traverse (which I LOVED!) for the week and the rate was very reasonable. We will definitely use them again in the future.
