Car cleanliness
Overall condition of the car
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

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

Pros: Customer service rep was efficient and thorough.

Cons: Time spent waiting for a pick-up a the airport in the chilly cold.

November 13, 2018

Pros: Price & agent clearly explained the forms for me to sign.

Cons: Has to wait in line about 15 minutes to return car.

November 12, 2018

Pros: Great place, value and super friendly staff. Love the Jeeps!

Cons: None

November 7, 2018

Pros: Polite and personable staff.

October 26, 2018

Pros: My daughter left her wallet and the agent called me and made sure that we were able to get the wallet back to my daughter.

October 25, 2018

Pros: All the staff was friendly and helpful.

October 22, 2018

Pros: The Jeep Wranglers are a nice addition as a rental car.

Cons: There were only 2 help desk employees for about 10 customers waiting in line. And there was only 1 bus which took 50 mins round trip.

October 21, 2018

Pros: pretty straightforward, not trying to pitch a ton of additional add-ons like other rental places do

Cons: sense of urgency - agents standing around when long line is forming

October 21, 2018

Pros: nothing

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

Cons: Airport pick up and drop off. i have waited for 40 min for airport pick up and 45 min airport drop off. very bad and drivers are very rude. they do not understand the english and people needs.

October 18, 2018

Pros: Pick up and drop off

Cons: condition of the vehicles and hidden charges

October 17, 2018

Pros: Couldn’t rent he car because I lived in the city. That needs to be a huge flashing light or else you are just wasting everyone’s tome

Cons: It just seems so shady to have it in small print

October 14, 2018

Cons: I disliked the truck I rented. It was slow and not efficient on gas.

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 12, 2018

Pros: The prices are unbeatable. The desk agents were pleasant and helpful. The shuttle driver was personable. Close to airport and tollways. Win! Win!

October 11, 2018

Pros: fast and friendly

Cons: nothing

October 10, 2018

Pros: Nothing

Cons: There was no service provided at ORD!!

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.

Cons: 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.

October 10, 2018

Pros: Nothing

October 9, 2018

October 6, 2018

Pros: Good

Cons: Did not have minivan

October 4, 2018

Pros: Nothing really.

Cons: Forever to get picked up. Forced to take excessively large vehicle that had several mechanical issues. Overall, terrible experience.

October 3, 2018

Pros: Our plane got in late and they were there to service us. The process was quick and painless. The shuttle was there waiting for us.

Cons: We liked everything about the rental.

October 3, 2018

Pros: patient and cordial

September 30, 2018

Pros: Randy was amazing, thoughtful, kind and very genuine in his interactions with us both at pick up and drop off.

Cons: the jeep was lots of fun, but used a lot of gas! Still have not had my deposit credited to my account.

September 30, 2018

Pros: Great people on the desk!

Cons: Exterior of car was not as clean as it should have been - dirt and water spots.

September 28, 2018

Cons: When I returned the car, I told them that the speedometer didn't go above 62. The agent said? (and this is a quote) "And WHY would you need to go above 62?" - I drove to Indiana on the Interstate where the speed limit is 70 - THAT's WHY~

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 25, 2018

Pros: Really had excellent service from representative Anthony. He was great!

September 25, 2018

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Poor selection of cars. TERRIBLE customer service

September 23, 2018

Pros: Very friendly and efficient staff

September 23, 2018

Pros: Quick pickup

Cons: Worst drop off service ever. Almost missed my flight due to waiting an hour to return my car. Had to pay for an uber for the shuttle service due to it not leaving until full. Then I had to sprint in the air port and beg TSA to let me to the front. I was told I had to pay for insurance a second time. Will never use this rent a car company ever again.

September 21, 2018

Pros: Very affordable

Cons: Long wait for the shuttle when picking up the car, and confusing instructions.

September 21, 2018

Pros: Looked brand new

September 19, 2018

Pros: It was a pretty good price compared to others.

Cons: They were exceedingly slow. Very inefficient process. They didn't have a minivan which I had reserved. They forced me to provide a copy of my insurance or else they would require me to buy their insurance.

September 19, 2018

Pros: Right price

Cons: hummmmm.

September 18, 2018

Pros: Price, very polite service

Cons: Tok a long time to get basic stuff done.

September 18, 2018

Cons: I was assaulted by the Routes shuttle Arabic driver.It was not provoked. I was humiliated. I was afraid for my life. Desk people are hardly helpful.

September 15, 2018

Pros: Poor overall.

Cons: Car dirty, cracked windshield, tailgate auto feature inoperative and speedometer stuck at 6mph. Asked for a charge adjustment and was told only 10 percent due to renting thru discover hire.com. Van driver talking on cell phone constantly an other van driver not wearing seat belt.

September 14, 2018

Pros: The agent was very friendly and helpful.

September 14, 2018

Pros: The only issue I had was with the call center. I had an issue and they wanted to charge me for a mistake the representative did. I had to clarify to the person that I provided the person with the correct info but they entered the data wrong.

September 13, 2018

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

September 13, 2018

Pros: Shuttle service was excellent!

Cons: They gave us a Jeep, which was hard for "Seniors" to get into and then it showed a low tire pressure warning so we had to take it back.

September 13, 2018

Pros: The representatives were very nice.

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.

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

September 11, 2018

Pros: Great vehicle for the price

Cons: My only complaint was that the vehicle I had did not have Bluetooth so I was unable to pair my phone. Not Huge deal, but something I'm generally used to.

September 10, 2018

Pros: Not much, but car was clean.

September 10, 2018

Pros: Solid car for a good price

Cons: Process for paying tolls inefficient. Ignored by service desk employees while waiting alone in line. Very odd behavior...

September 7, 2018

Pros: Hated whole experience

Cons: That the wouldn’t rent me a car

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

Pros: wouldn't release a car to me so nothing

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.

September 5, 2018

Pros: Helpful representatives, great price, great vehicle.

Cons: It did take a little while to get picked up by the van at the airport.

September 5, 2018

Pros: Great deal.

Cons: N/A

September 4, 2018

Pros: Very Good

Cons: Great Price and No issues

September 2, 2018

Cons: When I called en route for assistance, the person who answered my call was unhelpful and short. Also, the van to the airport was delayed and people were very angry. Also, I received "a free upgrade" which I did not want, but the car I wanted was unavailable.

September 2, 2018

Pros: The car was in great condition and was brought up to the office so we didn't have to bring all our bags to the parking lot.

Cons: The staff lied to me about the insurance and forced me to buy extra even though I already paid for insurance with my booking. Plus my credit card covers car rentals. The Routes guy said all of it was insufficient for Illinois law and forced me to get coverage from Routes in order to get my car. However, I booked a car with a competing rental car co. for the rest of my stay in Illinois and didn't have to pay for any insurance. So the Routes staff lied to me, which is why I won't use you again.

September 1, 2018

Pros: Very personal and helping

September 1, 2018

Pros: Flexibility and reasonable prices.

Cons: Amount of time to sign up for the rental car. Also the need to get a alternative car that was a lot different category than what I ordered.

August 31, 2018

Pros: Full size, 4dr, 4wd Jeep Sahara for the price of a subcompact on all other aggregate sites!

Cons: Understaffed. (Noting that everybody I saw there was hustling to do their best w lines and customer service).

August 31, 2018

Pros: HORRIBLE. RUDE MANAGER. REDICULOUS POLICY

Cons: EVERYTHING

August 31, 2018

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I never rented from your company. They turned me down once at the desk.

August 30, 2018

Pros: Pickup staff was very positive, polite and courteous, but really overworked. Shuttle drivers were great!

Cons: Vehicle was not as described, long wait for pickup and dropoff. They need better organization and staffing.

August 29, 2018

Cons: Bathrooms were dirty, no soap, paper all over the floor. The people were rude, lines were inefficient and I was switched to a car I didn’t want.

August 29, 2018

Pros: Price

Cons: Service is slow

August 27, 2018

Pros: Price was excellent, vehicle was clean, staff was friendly, and efficiency of drop-off for me. However, the drop-off time for others while I was picking up was far longer

Cons: Found your agency through an online third party and was unaware of what service I was using, had no idea how to find the airport pick-up van, there was no signage in the building to help people know where to go for pick-up or drop-off, spent nearly 90 minutes in the agency building and I was only the 4th person in line.

August 27, 2018

Pros: Most things were fabulous.

Cons: I was looking for Discovery rather than a Routes van, would be helpful to have one name or the name

August 26, 2018

Pros: Nothing, it's terrible and I'm going to make sure myself and my friends and family do not use this service.

Cons: They were going to hold $400 of mine for a $70 rental- which was not explained while checking out on the website. I ended up going back to O'Hare airport, and booking a different rental company along the way and paying only $100 at Budget for a better car, and zero holding fees for doing so.

August 26, 2018

Pros: not much

Cons: shuttle to car was slow and it took to long to get to the car. Check in process was slow.

August 25, 2018

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Every thing.

August 25, 2018

Pros: Nice car

Cons: Everything else.

August 24, 2018

Pros: They were able to convert my Nissan Rogue to a Jeep Wrangler as requested.

Cons: Nothing! Quick, efficient, great price!

August 24, 2018

Pros: They were there late at night 1:00, the van driver was polite and effecient

Cons: Forced to buy insurance I didn't need - No heads up to bring my personal insurance policy #. The rep said Oh yeah, we hear that a lot...!!?? and the left rear tire psi was low, had to keep refilling it. Please send me a refund.

August 24, 2018

Pros: Nothing... I didn't like anything. The car was clean, but it was a Jeep. I wanted the smallest, most fuel efficient car they have, and the agent said it was a freakin Jeep. So I had to drive 300+ miles around Illinois with a giant ass Jeep. But at least it was clean and in good condition, so I guess that's something?

Cons: The shuttle was very late and crammed once they actually picked everybody up. The agent at the front desk tried very hard to make me pay the underage fee (additional $20 each day) even though I am 25 years old. I wasted 10-15 minutes looking up the info on the Routes website to prove to her that I don't need to pay this fee. And then she said it actually depends on the website through which I booked the car (what the hell?). So I showed her on that website as well, and finally she gave in. Ugh.

August 24, 2018

Pros: They allowed my to cut the line to ask a question.

Cons: They did not allow me to pick up the car (due to policy) but then did not offer any additional help.

August 24, 2018

Pros: the price

Cons: took forever to check in the car. other car rental are waiting for you when you drop off. with Routes you had to go inside and then wait for a guy to come outside to check in, finally the van/shuttle guy helped out.

August 24, 2018

Cons: Lack of people behind the counter. No one at the shuttle. Had to load my own bags

August 24, 2018

Pros: The price was good. Shuttle drivers were friendly.

Cons: When my spouse called to extend our rental a day, she was told it would cost an additional $35. When we returned it, she was told that the cost was about $85 because we were three hours late. She was not reminded of the extra late fee charge when she made the call. She refused to pay the overage and was very upset about it. We did, however, have a successful resolution.

August 23, 2018

Pros: Good price

Cons: The shuttle was pretty slow on pickup-1/2 an hour, I was not crazy about the Jeep Wrangler we rented but that was my fault as I could have declined it.

August 22, 2018

Pros: I would never rent from Routes again. Staff was unhelpful.

August 22, 2018

Pros: Car was clean.

Cons: They were slow and the car was expensive.

August 22, 2018

Pros: The people were nice

Cons: Service was extremely slow. The van pick up was slow, the line at the rental location was slow. Most people were unaware they needed proof of car insurance - luckily I could pull mine up on my phone. The car itself was fine, but turning it in was also slow. Overall , it was frustrating.

August 22, 2018

Pros: Great price; friendly service.

August 20, 2018

Pros: Absolutely nothing

Cons: Terrible service and long wait.

August 20, 2018

Pros: The drop off was very smooth and the driver back to the airport very appropriate and professional. also when I was picking up the car the gentleman who joined the gal who was in a bad mooed at the counter was more patient and friendly.

Cons: the wait for the pick-up, the complete sour attitude of the attendant that could be heard by everyone in line (complaining a customer wanted to see the car they were renting first and holding up the line-for one example ), and the crazy driving of the person who picked us up to take us to the office. Also, the confirmation email clearly states we are to call upon arrival. I did and seemed to be bothering the person at the other end, as did those who were doing the same thing as I stood in line.

August 19, 2018

Pros: The representatives were clearly overworked and under stress during the two times I was there. They were doing the best they could under less than optimal conditions (understaffed, inefficient procedures and irritable clientele.). The price was very reasonable though, so for people willing to put up with the hassle, it might be worth it. The vehicle was comfortable and roomy. The shuttle drivers were courteous and helpful.

Cons: Never in my life have I had to wait in line to return my vehicle. When trying to catch a flight, this process puts undue stress on passengers. The entire pick up and drop off process needs an overhaul to make it efficient. The vehicle was dirty when I received it, a white car with brown smudges all over the outside from the prior renter that didn’t come off in the car wash.

August 19, 2018

Pros: Absolutely nothing! I have never received such horrible customer service.

Cons: There was only 1 person working constantly at the counter and not sure what the other 2 people were doing. The line of customers to pick up their cars was out the door after we got there. We had 4 people in front of us and it took almost 2 FULL HOURS to get our car. On top of that we did not get the car that we had reserved. Every customer was frustrated and the workers there were not helpful. This has shattered any confidence in renting from a small company which I will never do again.

August 18, 2018

Pros: Friendly, cooperative, efficient, easy to work with.

Cons: At the time, the only available vehicle type was a Jeep Wrangler, which I really did not want, but was stuck with.

August 18, 2018

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Shuttle Service, Agent , Pick up , drop off , Car Cleanliness , Gas was only half tank

August 16, 2018

Pros: they were nice and took the time to explain everything and did a walk through with me

Cons: they seemed understaffed. the place also offers airport parking and it took a long time for people to check back in with car.

August 16, 2018

Pros: the person was very customer service orientated

Cons: That you i had to pay $ 400.00 as deposit and that you dont take debit cards

August 16, 2018

Pros: The agents were doing the best they could, but the system of renting and returning was horrible and I'm sure many people missed their flights because of it.

Cons: The car looked like it had been in a collision, was dirty and greasy on the inside, service to pick it up was painfully slow, the shuttle from the airport took ONE HOUR to pick me up then nearly made me wait because I was traveling with a bicycle, the agency was VERY far from the airport... I could go on and on...

August 15, 2018

Cons: Long wait for the shuttle, for picking up the car for dropping the car. Everything is a long wait.

August 15, 2018

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: The entire process.

August 15, 2018

Pros: 1. Freshly washed from outside.

Cons: 1. It took 1&1/2 to pick up my auto 2. They would not accept my auto insurance verbally. They wanted a copy of it. They charged me extra. They would not accept copy after the fact. 3. Auto was dirty from inside. 4. I was handed Auto on empty tank of gas. 5. I returned Auto a day ahead. No credit was offered.

August 15, 2018

Cons: It took a while for the shuttle to pick us up from the airport after the car rental representative told us where to wait for pickup. Shuttle drove right past us. We had to call rep back and have shuttle turn around to come get us.

August 14, 2018

Pros: Friendly staff, nice, clean vehicle.

Cons: There were lots of staff but it seemed only a couple were there to wait on customers, especially if renting a car. The wait on the return was over 30 minutes and I as the first person in line...

August 13, 2018

Pros: The car worked fine. I had no concerns about the vehicle itself.

Cons: It felt a little disorganized when I went to pick up my car. It took longer than I expected. In the past, dropping off a car was usually really fast. Here, I had to get back on line with all of the people picking up cars.

August 13, 2018

Pros: Easy peasy...

August 13, 2018

Pros: Transportation to airport came quickly. Agents were friendly and helpful in spite of the fact that the desk was under staffed.

Cons: Very long wait, not enough people at desk

August 13, 2018

Pros: Drop off was very easy, staff efficient and the rental was very clean.

Cons: A bit chaotic during pick up process.
