Efficiency of the car rental agents

Time spent dropping off the car
Car cleanliness
Overall condition of the car
August 16, 2019

Pros: Customer Service Agents are great.

August 16, 2019

Pros: Read above

Cons: Read above

August 14, 2019

Pros: Check in process was really quick and efficient

Cons: The new pick up process in Chicago is a bit frustrating but now that I understand how it works it will be better

August 11, 2019

Pros: Once dropped off car they shuttled me right back to the airport. Staff were friendly

Cons: Unfortunately they were not located in car rental port. So you have to take shuttle bus to car rental place, then wait for Routes car shuttle to pick you up and take you to the shop

August 9, 2019

Pros: Everything was clearly laid out in email (made it stress free finding Routes off-site).

August 7, 2019

Pros: They gave us a complimentary IPASS since they forced us to take a Jeep Sahara instead of the car we wanted.

Cons: It took too long. Agents were not nice. It appeared as though we were all showing up cold, but we all had prepaid reservations on line. It seemed like the agents couldn't find any of our data in the computer. We wanted a smallish 4 door car with good gas mileage. The only vehicles they had left were Jeep Saharas. Our car drove rough, had no back up cam, and only the cig lighter worked as a charger. The USBs and the plug were broken. We had to buy a cig car charger.

August 3, 2019

Pros: Nothing at all. Incompetent compantly.

Cons: I disliked everything.

August 3, 2019

Pros: Good car, helpful gentleman at check-in, competitive price.

Cons: Check-in was awkward as we all had to wait in line behind people renting cars. Luckily, we had left extra time to get to the airport, but it would be more efficient if someone were there to check us in by the car so we could get on the bus to the airport quicker. Being located in the car rental centre would probably also be more efficient if possible, since waiting for a second bus was time consuming and the location was a little difficult to find on the return.

August 1, 2019

Pros: Representatives tried their best to solve our situation. Quick and spoke Spanish.

Cons: No airport pickup. You have to take a bus to rental center and then be picked up by van.

August 1, 2019

Pros: Desk agent was clear and effective in finding a solution.

Cons: We arrived as planned at 2:00am and there were no cars as per our confirmed reservation.

July 30, 2019

Pros: Nice clerks but overworked and interrupted by constantly having to answer the phone

July 23, 2019

Pros: see above

Cons: see above

July 23, 2019

Pros: They were blunt but fairly quick.

Cons: Talking about disgruntled customer

July 22, 2019

Pros: Quick and to the point service

Cons: Some waiting at drop-off. Shuttle was full so had to wait for a next shuttle.

July 18, 2019

Pros: Great rates and pleasant staff

July 16, 2019

Cons: Women’s restroom was out of order. Which is a very big problem when you have multiple groups waiting hours for the cars to come back in.

July 12, 2019

Pros: The primary thing I liked was the cost.

Cons: We didn't prefer the inconvenience of having to take a shuttle to O'Hare's car rental place and then call for another ride to Routes, but it was still worth it for the lower cost. When we dropped the car off, the shuttle driver to the terminal had been smoking in the vehicle. It really smelled bad and my daughters were having a hard time breathing. He also was a very aggressive driver and was yelling at other cars.

July 9, 2019

Pros: Everyone from my van driver to the desk rep was so friendly and efficient

July 6, 2019

Pros: Quick, easy, affordable and I got a nice vehicle

Cons: Was another stop/step to get the the rental location from O'Hare. But it was very easy. Nice that they provide a shuttle directly to the terminal when you drop off the vehicle

July 2, 2019

Pros: The service was efficient & excellent when dropping off the car; the shuttle driver was excellent.

Cons: The service was awful when picking up the car; the front desk was chaotic & would request to serve people dropping off cars to park before helping those picking up rentals; a few customers including my self were not aware that a copy of their personal car insurance was needed - I would suggest Routes sending out a notice / reminder email letting rental customers know what is needed; the deposit the company requires to hold is significantly higher than most rental companies; most staff was rude

June 30, 2019

Pros: Nothing. Terrible

Cons: They don't equip their vehicles with spare tires and they have TERRIBLE customer service. One woman hung up on me after I expressed concern for the safety of my family and another one of their employees refused to drive my husband to the airport on the shuttle.

June 29, 2019

Cons: Takes too long to get to you. The driver was rude. We gave up on you and rented from Alamo.

June 27, 2019

Pros: New car, SUV, great price

Cons: It is off-off site, and is not in the new car rental building built at O'hare. One has to take the O'hare shuttle to the car rental building to the North to catch the Routes shuttle to the South. They do not have enough rental agents on staff when a full shuttle comes in.

June 21, 2019

Pros: NOTHING

Cons: No Shuttle bus to pick us to the rental from the specified location. After waiting for 1 hr and calling 5 times a shuttle bus came and there was about 60 person waiting. Had to wait for another shuttle bus. Had to wait for 30 min inline to pick the rental, after having all my information they said no care available. They tried to find me any other car than the one I reserved (minivan) but they couldn't. I had to have the shuttle bus again to the airport and try to find myself a rental

June 15, 2019

Pros: Easy to book, and available efficiently at pick up

Cons: Didn't like the car, so a jeep. Much to difficult to get in and out. High off the ground, poor mileage.

June 14, 2019

Pros: Ease of picking up and dropping off

Cons: Location

June 9, 2019

Pros: Not much

Cons: Customer service

June 8, 2019

Pros: Friendly staff!

Cons: It took about 25 minutes to be picked up from the airport and then about 30 minutes to be able to leave with the car rented.

June 8, 2019

Pros: The helpfulness of the agents.

Cons: The offsite facility and confusing directions to the facility.

June 6, 2019

Pros: I appreciate the customer service.

June 6, 2019

Pros: I love the cars, and the people are mostly nice.

Cons: It's a bit of pain to get to with the two transfers. They wouldn't give me the discount because I pre-paid. You'd think pre-paying would be a good thing for you!

June 1, 2019

Pros: Conditions were spelled out in the online information before making my reservation. There were no surprises at the rental desk.

Cons: Because this is an off-site rental location, getting to the location is a two-step process. Some additional waiting time is involved. I felt it was well-balanced by the reduced cost. However, if time is of the essence, this additional time may need to be considered. For the drop off the shuttle driver did not ask me to which terminal I needed to go, perhaps he missed me because I did not have luggage to store in the luggage hold where he might have asked the other travelers.

May 30, 2019

Pros: I was helped immediately and also given an upgrade. The shuttle took my directly to exactly where I needed to be in a timely matter.

Cons: I was nervous about all the bad reviews I read but I dont have any complaints.. I am more than satisfied

May 29, 2019

Pros: price

Cons: no direct pick up at airport

May 29, 2019

Cons: See notes above. Overall It wasn’t a good experience.

May 28, 2019

Pros: Was easy!

Cons: Couldn’t pick me at the airport

May 19, 2019

Pros: Efficient, and within the limitations of a busy rental centre, fairly quick

Cons: Area for improvement would be to have insurance options to be clearly agreed between Discover and Routes, so that the customer gets a clear list fo options with prices. Another area for improvement would be to have toll payments made by the rental company with the customer's card being debited within a week of completion of rental. It is not easy for an international visitor to figure out the various tolls that are payable.

May 15, 2019

Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable

Cons: Slow

May 14, 2019

Pros: Friendly agents and drivers.

Cons: Would appreciate having more options for economy cars than the one offered - Kia, don't remember the model of the car.

May 13, 2019

Pros: Leaving the car back was straight forward and car we received was excellent could not fault

Cons: The waiting and phone calls to get picked up from car hire terminal. Then the wait when we arrived was shocking the lady we got didn't have a clue . Plus staff had to deal with returns plus go get the customers hire car etc. Never seen anything like it. I'm not one to make a fuss but it definitely put me off using again. Returning car was great as wasn't busy and bus took us to airport promptly. Just needs more staff and staff training. Then would have my custom again

May 12, 2019

Pros: Rental price

Cons: Have to take two shuttles to reach car rental location. Booster seat for kid was very dirty. Understaffed and chaotic trying to get the shuttle back to airport.

May 11, 2019

Cons: The driver who took me back to the airport did not leave me at the terminal with a metro, but at one I did not have. I had to take a bus to get to the subway. The driver was perfectly aware of what he was doing because I asked him twice to make sure.

May 7, 2019

Pros: Absolutely nothing.

Cons: The deal was for a Nissan Rogue or similar. They said they did not have any and gave me a little compact. I need to sit up higher for my back. The seat in the car they gave me was so low it was very difficult and painful to get in and out. Why didn't they honor their agreement? Also,from the terminal, one bus to car rental center, then wait a half hour for van to Routes location, then stand in line to get the car I did not contract for. Way too much time. And the counter people were not in any h

May 6, 2019

Pros: New and nice SUV.

Cons: It is not located at the airport. You have to take a bus from the airport to the car rental center. Once you get to the car rental center you go inside to search for Routes to finally realize that it is located off-site. You must call routes to pick you up and it took about 30 minutes where I got on another shuttle. Once you get to Routes the process is really broken. It took me about 30 minutes to wait in line, and fill out a bunch of paperwork. When you return the car you have to wait in line

May 5, 2019

Pros: Cannot think of one thing.

Cons: Please see above. Also, I called them and they kept me on the phone for 20 minutes on hold. I called them back. The agent was very nice after that.

April 30, 2019

Pros: Nice Car

Cons: Two Shuttles to get to the car

April 29, 2019

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I had to wait a long time for the shuttle to get me after taking a shuttle to the car rental center in Ohare. Then one shuttle drive did not wait for me when I arrived and the next driver said he would take me only if I "threw a few bucks at him." I said no, and eventually he still took me. I also never saw instructions to bring proof of insurance. It is well hidden, and should be made more apparent in your promotional materials.

April 24, 2019

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Wait time and pick up

April 24, 2019

Pros: Easy, efficient and pleasant to work with.

Cons: Wait on both ends was a little longer than ideal.

April 23, 2019

Pros: What Service

Cons: Nothing

April 19, 2019

Pros: That they required my car insurance. I dont know my policy off the top of my head. I would have prepared that if i was informed. did not see that.

Cons: The fact that they needed my car insurance and i wasnt informed of that

April 17, 2019

Pros: Clean car.

Cons: The car rental & car parking lines are no clear. Not enough people to help you, so you have to wait. Insurance not taken. This was buried in the paperwork and an expensive mistake on my part. The upgrade was save, but Jeeps are not very good for highway driving.

April 16, 2019

Pros: Good price

Cons: Takes 2 shuttle buses to reach their location. Drop-off uses the same desk/clerks as pick-up so had to wait a little.

April 10, 2019

Pros: The price and the high quality car

Cons: The shuttle did not have working seat belts and last I checked that’s against the law. The shuttle of 15-20 min is too spaced out. You need every 10-15 min to make it worth the wait. It’s also clear you do not value your employees and the hard work that they provide. There are corners being cut and it makes it unsafe for them and especially us as a customer as well. It’s a good concept just be clear you are not going to fix anything that is broken within a timely fashion.

April 9, 2019

Pros: Quick, courteous, professional

Cons: It was minor, but signage directing you to the provider could have been better.

April 5, 2019

Pros: First time renting from this company while visiting Chicago. Overall experience was satisfactory and would definitely rent from them again.

March 21, 2019

Pros: They where honest, they told me that they prrinspect the car already and mark all the scratches and ding on the car, good value for the money clean car and nice car

Cons: None

March 18, 2019

Pros: price is good.

Cons: not clear on pickup. requires 2 transfers to get to rental desk. van should pickup from airport direct. sticker plate expired and i had to come in to switch car at night after receiving a traffic ticket. no compensation provided. was given wrangler when i ask for nissan. she said no nissan and then 5 minutes later the lady behind me was given a nissan.

March 18, 2019

Pros: when I called to front desk and inquiry about the shuttle services, the lady is not friendly and have attidude. I arrived at 7am, and not sure whether I need to call to their desk and request a shuttle as it is so early in the morning. she was rude to answer that shuttle bus is there . If I don’t see it, I just need to wait for it. i did told her that I’m not sure I need to make a request for shuttle bus as it is early in the morning when I called.

March 15, 2019

Cons: THe parking lot very crowded and busy. I also realize the attendants at cus svc desk are busy and deal with a lot of people, however, I felt the phrase: "you get what you pay for" come to mind over and over when I walked in. They came off as abrasive and almost rude. They yelled at everyone to make sure they had stuff out and ready to go. I'm sorry, but who is the customer here? There is no need for that kind of treatment.

March 15, 2019

Pros: Good customer service from representative

Cons: Didn't provide a GPS as booked (without plugging in your phone when I had no package to cover the USA) and so had to change car to a larger one.

March 13, 2019

Pros: The car provided had a full tank, low miles, and a newer vehicle.

Cons: The descrepancy about the full coverage that I paid before the day of the rental.

March 11, 2019

Pros: The car was a great deal, appreciated the shuttle.

Cons: Really slow pick-up and drop off

March 8, 2019

Cons: There were no directions within the airport on how to get to Routes. I had to ask the shuttle driver about it.

March 6, 2019

Pros: The price was cheep

Cons: The worst customer service I have ever experienced. I dropped my car off and had to wait over 55 minutes until the driver would take us to the airport. I almost missed my flight and was treated very poorly.

March 2, 2019

Pros: price and staff

Cons: ocation

March 1, 2019

Pros: Like the choices...especially the jeeps.

February 28, 2019

Pros: Bridgett was very helpful, had a good sense of humor, and went above and beyond to make sure I knew how to get to the freeway from the Routes office. The cost was the best I could find for the area at the time I needed the car.

Cons: I would not recommend it to people who need to leave the airport and get going in the hurry. The office seemed to be staffed with about half as many people as it needed to really work well.

February 27, 2019

Cons: They apparently have a "no locals" rule, and this was not made clear on the website. They wouldn't give me the car I'd already booked.

February 26, 2019

Pros: New car. Convenient shuttle back to terminal

Cons: Hidden insurance costs. Awkward and time consuming to reach from terminal

February 25, 2019

Pros: Shuttle service was prompt and car was in good condition

Cons: Picking up and dropping off the car was longer than other rental agencies.

February 24, 2019

Pros: The price was very reasonable.

Cons: The car didn't come with a spare tire, which seems really odd, irresponsible, and potentially dangerous. As it happens, I got a flat tire while driving the rental car, and since there was no spare I had to pay a tow truck to tow my car to the rental place. So, whatever money I saved on the rental, I ended up paying for the tow truck and the replacement of the flat tire.

February 22, 2019

Pros: Normally I rate Routes a perfect score of 10. This time it was horrible including a Jeep that had tape and marker still on the vehicle and navigation that was disfunctional and not repaired. They informed me of the wrong place to wait to be picked up. I only got someone to respond on my fourth call.

Cons: They offered I could drive all the way back and switch out the vehicle which was not of interest or possible on a Friday afternoon in traffic. When I returned the vehicle they were not concerned to hear what had gone wrong. I will not be renting from them again.

February 22, 2019

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Lack of cars or agents pushing big cars on you

February 20, 2019

Cons: Waited a long time in line to pick up the car. It would be nice to be able to do some of that online before.

February 20, 2019

Pros: It was cheap.

Cons: It was overly complicated. People were not polite. The car wasn’t what I ordered and it smelled like smoke.

February 16, 2019

Pros: Quick thoughtful personal and help when cars limited due to weather

February 16, 2019

Pros: There are knowledgeable staff who are happy.

February 15, 2019

Pros: Friendly agents. Let me plug my phone into the computer to charge as he was getting the car ready.

Cons: Took a very long time. Constant ringing phones. Need more people working!

February 12, 2019

Pros: No charge for larger vehicle,

Cons: Service at pick-up. The attendant was not very friendly and the process took a long time.

February 11, 2019

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Off site from ORD. Requires a shuttle from the car rental center. Long lines and understaffed.

February 11, 2019

Pros: nothing

Cons: poor service, did not get the car I requested, they charged me again and refuse to give me a refund.

February 8, 2019

Cons: I was unable to even rent the car due to non-informative information. I had to find an alternative rental place. With the travel from airport to this facility, back, and hassle of the latter my overnight airport trip due to weather became a longer day due to the inefficiency of this company.

February 8, 2019

Cons: I thought I booked a Jeep but got a Durango. I tried it out, and its nice. However it was pretty beat up and dirty. It needs a good detailing job.

February 7, 2019

Pros: I would like praise the staff in Chicago they were amazing and had great patience as a number of calls came in while I was getting my car and they handled them all with respect.

Cons: Nothing it was all great

February 6, 2019

Cons: Desk staff seemed disorganized.

February 2, 2019

Pros: Great customer service..fast pick and you get the car that you requested!! no one tries to upset you. Great company have used them 3 times!!

January 31, 2019

Pros: shuttle driver was nice

Cons: rental car agent refused to let me rent car

January 29, 2019

Pros: Their customer service policies and practice are appalling. No wonder they have a low Yelp rating, even with over 240+ reviews.

Cons: If requiring an outbound flight in order to rent from this company s so important to them, both you and them are responsible for making sure the client has all appropriate information with them when picking up the car. I checked multiple times what was required of me, even calling twice that same day and speaking with a rep. Not once was I reminded/encouraged that I would need an outbound flight number to complete the reservation.

January 28, 2019

Pros: Great value, good, new cars

Cons: returning takes too long, and is not done at the car, the rental shuttle is a bit of a pain and always dirty

January 28, 2019

Pros: Price was good and the vehicle was clean and new

Cons: Double shuttle to get to the rental car facility. Routes in Chicago was understaffed and the process was slow and appeared to be very unorganized. Multiple customers were frustrated. The car return area was backed up with returns and blocking the airport shuttle from getting to the customers. Took a solid 20 to 25 mins to return the car an get on the shuttle headed to the airport. Good thing I gave myself a lot of time!

January 28, 2019

Pros: Good car/price, friendly people

Cons: The facility had several people working, but apparently only one "agent" handling pickup and dropoff and phone calls. Turnaround time seemed longer than necessary.

January 24, 2019

Pros: Quick, free upgrade and convenient!

Cons: Some damage to the car.

January 23, 2019

Pros: Over charged

Cons: Over charged

January 22, 2019

Pros: Absolutely nothing.

Cons: Deceiving policies and rules. Should not operate as a car rental company.

January 22, 2019

Pros: This company is predatory and designed to take advantage of fine print charges.

Cons: It's setup to trap customers, strong arming them into necessary charges

January 17, 2019

Pros: value for money friendly staff

Cons: n/a

January 17, 2019

Pros: No hidden fees, tricks.

Cons: It was completely manual. the one guy was answering the phone all the time and taking one customer at a time. Occasionally there was a second agent at the desk.

January 17, 2019

Pros: They provided a free ride to the rental terminal.

Cons: Not until the moment of arriving at the location where we informed of the need for an arrival and departure ticket to be able to rent a vehicle. Friendly customer rep but infuriating rental policy.

January 16, 2019

Cons: I booked through a third party (discover car hire) and apparently my reservation didn’t go through to routes, so I had to fill out more paperwork and was there longer. The man working there this happens frequently with this company.

January 16, 2019

Pros: The car I was given was clean and in good working condition.

Cons: Routes is grossly understaffed, leading to long waits when picking up or dropping off rental vehicles.

January 15, 2019

Pros: Workers were nice and helpful, doing what they could with what they have.

Cons: Having to wait to picked although I gave them a time of arrival. Being taken off the airports campus to a shady location. The car I chose was not available upon arrival. The car given to me was in no way shape or form safe to drive. They didn’t warn me of the steering problem, I found out after I skid making a right turn.

January 4, 2019

Pros: Fast, friendly service

Cons: Van rented was new to Routes so it did not come/start with a full tank of gas. I ended up incorrectly estimating the amount I would use and ended up giving away a free quarter/tank to Routes with no refund given....

January 3, 2019

Pros: Nothing. No service provided

Cons: Refused to rent cat

December 25, 2018

Pros: Terrible

Cons: Wretched

December 21, 2018

Pros: NONE

Cons: SEE MY EMAILS

December 20, 2018

Pros: low low cost

Cons: faraway location compared to other agencies

December 18, 2018

Pros: quick great cars fantastic support staff

Cons: nothing......all was great as it always has been

December 17, 2018

Pros: fast and friendly

Cons: no problems

December 14, 2018

Pros: The return process was very efficient and the price was good.

Cons: The rep I called for clarification regarding directions to the facility was not polite. After arriving, the rep in the facility was on the phone and did not acknowledge me when I was standing in front of him for more than 3 minutes. The rep did not provide clear information about insurance requirements, telling me that I would "need to figure that out on my own." I was very disappointed in the professionalism and overall courtesy of the service and will not ever rent from Routes again.

December 1, 2018

Cons: Service clerk never walked us though our rental car,kinda standard for most car rental shops. Never did a walk around inspection of the car,he just “did it himself” Shuttle service wait was 30-40 minutes.

November 28, 2018

Cons: Disorganized process for checking in: We're happy to help but car selected is not available, no wait it is but it doesn't have a license plate on it. We have another one....nope, not serviced. Here's an alternative, brand new, but it's on empty so just fill it up on your way out (what a rip off on departure when we left it with half tank of gas). Staff was friendly but system was inefficient at best.

November 20, 2018

Pros: The week I was traveling the car prices were nuts! I took a gamble on using discover car hire. It was over 100 less than all others so I was nervous and expected problems. But I was wrong. It was a great experience. Even the van that took me to the location was quick. I will book again.

Cons: I liked everything. The only thing that needs fixed is when I went to modify the time it created a new reservation so my credit card was charged twice, but it was discovered when I was Checking out the car and they refunded it no problem! I never heard of routes but it was great!

November 15, 2018

Pros: Booking was cheap.

Cons: Booked a sedan and got a jeep. Blindsided by extra charges at the counter and no public WiFi to get the information online. Agent was very brusque. van took a long time to come pick us up and waited forever for it to come drop me off.

November 15, 2018

October 22, 2018

October 21, 2018

Cons: the bus driver who harassed us for a tip , i was about to give him a tip but he was demanding a tip before i had the chance to give home one... also no clear direction where to go to ride shuttle.

October 19, 2018

Cons: Did not appreciate being given a vehicle to rent with a gas level near empty. The staff explained it was the manager's style of operation, but at 1:00am and children in tow, to then half to find a gas station made for an unsatisfying experience with Routes. It would be best to give customers vehicles with at least half a tank of gas, especially when renting in the wee hours of the morning. Also, toll fees recommended were unnecessary. Unlikely to rent from this company in the future.

October 19, 2018

Pros: See above. Extremely helpful employee think was Vicky.

October 19, 2018

Cons: Hope you had smaller cars

October 19, 2018

October 13, 2018

Pros: It was easy and didn't take long

October 12, 2018

Cons: I made a reservation through your service through Kayak and was connected with a rental car company called “Routes” in Chicago, IL. When I arrived to pick up my rental this company required me to take their liability insurance which increased the cost of my reservation by around $150. I have never had trouble in the past with waiving car insurance as I have my own. I had already started the process of my reservation when I realized that I should cancel and they had already charged my card. I

October 10, 2018

Pros: I was pleasantly surprised by this rental. GREAT value and a super cool Jeep to drive around for a week. I took the chance with having to take a shuttle offsite to get the car, but if you're not In a rush, do it. It's well worth it.

Cons: Like I said, I knew I had to take a shuttle but I wish I didn't. And without a shuttle, I would have paid more.

October 10, 2018

Pros: I had to add another insurance on top of the alleged “full coverage” that I bought. Even though the policy stated “Third Part Liability” coverage, I was forced to buy a new liability insurance. Expensive and annoying experience.

September 28, 2018

September 27, 2018

Pros: Drop off was quick Chicago staff was really cool.

Cons: The Jeep. It has really terrible interior and lacks a lot of features. We were on the road quite a bit and the usb on the radio didn’t work (a recall announced by Chrysler) I had to purchase an aux cord.

September 26, 2018

Cons: The requirement to provide proof of insurance is a scam! Not highlighted, not obvious, contrary to other practices, and seems solely designed to extract extra money from unknowing renters. Car had dents and broken parts. Contract listed gas as "full" even though it only had 3/4 of a tank. Counter people were disinterested and unhelpful. Email confirmation contained misleading information about pickup location causing us to wait a long time in the wrong place. All in all, very unsatisfactory.

September 14, 2018

Pros: The agent was very friendly and helpful.

September 14, 2018

September 13, 2018

Pros: Desk clerk was fast even though they should have had two people at the desk.

September 13, 2018

Cons: Nothing

September 13, 2018

Pros: Cool car for a good price.

Cons: I waited 30 minutes for an airport shuttle. Then I had to provide insurance proof which I've never had to with other companies. Then when returning the car it there was a long line simply to drop off the keys. Then, finally, the agent was sarcastic and rude.

September 12, 2018

Pros: Great car and good price.

Cons: The pick up at the airport took 15 minutes to arrive. The drop off of the rental took about 40 minutes. Instead of using the shuttle we had to pay 20 dollars to UBER to the airport from the rental site in order to make our flight.

September 12, 2018

Pros: Routes Car & Truck Rentals were great, I just wish DiscoverCarHire did not have misleading information on the website.

September 11, 2018

September 7, 2018

Pros: Everything

Cons: Can't think of anything

September 7, 2018

Pros: Horrible customer service. A flight confirmation was apparently required even though the customer service rep could NOT identify where in the terms and conditions it was required. Refused to proceed with our rental reservation -- forcing us to make a last minute reservation with another company at astronomical prices. I am still very very upset by this company and cannot believe how UNCLEAR this policy was at the time of booking and the POOR behavior of the customer service rep.

Cons: I am telling everyone i can to NEVER EVER RENT with this company every again and will be writing a YELP review and whatever else I can do to prevent people from interacting with Routes again.

September 6, 2018

Pros: the ease

Cons: nothing

September 6, 2018

Cons: DIscover is a great part of the issue

September 6, 2018

Pros: The professionalism and care of the staff. Super friendly. Quick service. Best rental experience I’ve had ever. I also loved that they didn’t try and push and up charge like a lot of rental places

Cons: Nothing.
