...this Emerald Aisle experience was disappointing. I needed something other than a sedan, and the choice was either a Blue or Gray Jeep Patriot. These must be the most stripped down versions Jeep offers. The first one smelled and looked dirty inside. The second one was better but still had crap in the cup holder, around the shifter, and on the floor. A single cigarette lighter port (no USB or 2nd) when I need to plug in my GPS, and 2 phones. I didn't have time to roam a 100deg lot for others cars.

Instead of being charged the weekly rate that I'd agreed to pay in advance, my credit card was charged for a much higher daily rate. This could have been a simple mistake or it could have been a systematic scam. I'm not giving a 1-star review because once I pointed out the bait-and-switch, the customer service rep said I would get a refund. Yet to add to the aggravation, she couldn't process it. I have to call the billing dept. on a weekday in order to process my refund. Sadly, this would have been a positive review if not for their billing error. The car was perfectly fine and pickup and drop-off were as convenient as possible at an airport (Denver) where you have to take a shuttle bus to get to the rental car lots. If you use National, keep your paperwork and be sure to check your credit card bill after the fact.

Obviously National has no responsibility for the design of the Denver airport, but they compensate wonderfully with an easy to find free shuttle to and from the airport. The shuttle is a very short ride. This also makes driving to and from the car pickup/return a breeze. All of the staff was prompt and friendly with my rental. The Emerald Aisle is a truly efficient process. I had a small accident with my car, and roadside assistance asked all of the relevant questions and assured me that the incident was covered under the insurance I purchased. Highly recommended. No hassles whatsoever.

Made our reservations online. Upon arriving at rental car site the staff brought our vehicle to us. We simply exited at tollbooth with minimum verification. Loved not having to stand in line for desk rep and no paperwork. Drop off was evening easier. Parked car and confirmed email receipt. Staff was professional in all interactions. Best of all the price quoted was the price charged. I have been rental from National for a few year now and will continue to do so in the future!

The reason for the satisfactory review is the cleanliness of the cars rented at this location. I rented a vehicle from the Executive Emerald Club and the car was filthy on the outside. You can tell it had been washed but it was never dried. By not drying the cars it leaves so many spots on the windows and mirrors that they are hardly useable. I had to stop and wash the windows at a gas station to see past the spots. The same with the mirrors - I had to clean them before I could use them.
For an airport location and the EXECUTIVE TEIR at National Car Rental I expected more.

As an Executive Member, National has provided a very easy method of selecting a car and getting on the road to you destination. Upon return it gets even easier, drive up, scan in, receipt and off to the airport. Best service ever!

Emerald Club was so easy! I tried it for the first time on this trip, reserved a mid size car but I was able to upgrade to a crossover SUV for the same rate. Even though it was my first time to use the Emerald Aisle and by pass the line, the paperwork at the booth only took a few minutes. Emerald Aisle will be my go-to rental car choice from here on!

Cars are new and very clean. As an Executive the selection is very good. Lots of SUVs with 4 wheel drive. When there is a problem quickly handled and marked clearly on the car. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

If you arrive after taking the red eye be prepared to be questioned about your executive status. Highly recommend dressing in your finest. If you have reserved a car, it may or may not be there depending on ... Their mood? If they say you won't have to go into the building be ready to go into the building. The dirty sticky car filled with popcorn is not the managers fault because it's not her job to clean the cars so enjoy the free snack. Reginal manager called and said she would send me her email. Odds are not good since it's already been a few weeks. PS if your renting a convertible (mistake we once made a in the fall, make sure the top works and ask for the manual because they are not in the cars but it might give you a list if the tools you'll need to fix it. Good luck

I've been using National for years and years. I love their philosophy of getting you in and out as quick as possible. Other agencies, in the effort to go above and beyond just waste my time. The best car rental is one where you are only there for minutes and then on your way. My most recent rental had a problem with the rear view mirrors. I told them upon returning the car and they graciously discounted the rental.
