Advantage Rent a Car in Raleigh

We used Advantage instead of the more expensive companies. It was excellent. The people at the counter were friendly and helpful. Two things I would say to improve: the pick up location at the airport is in Zone 9, not in Zone 10 with the rest of the rental companies; the toll-free number should be printed on the reservation confirmation. Price was right, great car, great service.

I would NOT recommend Advantage if you are flying into Raleigh Durham Airport. It is not located near the other rental companies and is out by long term parking, the shuttle is hard to find, and the ride to get there took to long. The rental office is old and beat up looking. Plus they tried to up sell me to car car twice the price when I had booked an economy car. Car itself was fine. If Thrify, Dollar or Enterprtse have similar prices I would go there first.

Majorly upset. The staff at the Raleigh, NC location mislead me and now are charging me over $60 more on my rental car. Horrible reaction on the part of the staff and manager Herzon. I was treated with suspicion and then told that the contract is the contract. DO NOT RENT from them!!!! DISadvantage. Major fail. — at Advantage Rent A Car.

Yes avoid them. The shuttle bus does not have "Advantage" on it, it is an off site parking lot bus. The location Is far from the airport, I TURNED down the first car because it was really dirty, dead insects and mud all over the driver's floor carpet. The second one was also dirty but after waiting 40 minutes for an airport pick-up I gave up and took the car.

The counter people have the "I work for the County" mentality.

They also charge your card a $200 "deposit" when the industry norm is 20%.

This is untrue. I am sitting in the Advantage shuttle bus, with ADVANTAGE all over it, as I type this, and I got it at the same stop with all the other shuttle buses.
