Pros: There were options for upgraded cars. I originally reserved a compact SUV and upon arrival found that the car i was to receive was a hatchback car that was a stick shift. The attendant was willing to upgrade us at no cost to a Suzuki SUV to accommodate our luggage.
Cons: The car we were upgraded to was not of good quality. The windows did not roll down, the vent broke once we got out of the airport, the radio display did not work, and the suspension was horrible. The car could not go 55mph without wondering all over the road and feeling like it was going to tip over. Our friends went with Alamo Rentals and received a newer Ford Explorer for a small increase in price. In the future we will be going with a different company to insure reliability and comfort.

Driver seat and steering wheel did not line up. 7. Gas tank door remote lever was poorly placed. 8. Windshield wipers were worn. 9. Remote key could not open or lock doors. Battery was dead. Other than that, it was a piece of junk.

Pros: Very easy pick up and drop off. When we got the car at the airport and told them we'd be going to water taxi after drop off, they suggested we drop the car off at their other office, closer to to the city center, and then they would drive us to to water taxi pier, rather than having to take a cab. It all worked out smoothly and I was appreciative of their efforts.
Cons: Nothing. It was a totally positive experience.

Do your research!
Pros: While traveling to Placencia, I reserved a car with Budget at the airport. I paid for the extra insurance online as was advertised. Don't use Budget or the Allianz insurance while traveling to Belize, the coverage isn't accepted and they will try to charge you $50 US/day. This isn't made clear online anywhere. Long story short, we had to find another company at the airport to rent from for the week.
Cons: Don't advertise insurance if you can't use it. Wasting customer money is not good customer service.
