Pros:The car drove well and was a good value. However trash was left inside at pick up. The transport or shuttle service was taking off while I was trying to board. I was having a tough time walking and managing my bag. Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers. Fellow passengers yelled at the driver to stop a d helped me board.Cons:Shuttle experience and cleanliness of vehicle.Reviewed Jul 8 2021

Pros:Staff friendly and the drop off and puck up wer super easyCons:Honestly the only issue i have is the cost of the rental. Seemed higher than usual, but i am sure it is due to the current economy and vehicle shortages.Reviewed Jul 7 2021

Pros:Drop off was super easyCons:Reserved a mid size SUV months in advance only to be told they didn’t have any. Said there should be some coming in if I wanted to wait a couple hours. Offered me an “upgrade” to a mid size sedan. Since I didn’t feel like sitting in an airport waiting I took it. He then proceeded to try and charge me over double until I produced the email with the reservation and price. I reserved the type of vehicle I did for ease of getting in and out if I wanted a sporty midsize I would’ve reserved it.Reviewed Jul 6 2021

Pros:Staff was amazing. Lou was an consummate professional and was a model employee.Cons:Rental cars in general are outrageously expensive these days. Nothing against Alamo, but the industry is incredibly overpriced for even the worst cars in the inventory.Reviewed Jul 5 2021
