We had to wait in line for over an hour to get the car. The car we rented was not available so we got a larger car, which we didn't really needed. The inside of the car was clean but the windows were still dirty.Reviewed Apr 27 2023

We had a 5pm vehicle reservation upon our arrival at CLT airport and didn't get our rental until 7:30pm. Staff was wildly understaffed and unprepared to meet not only our needs, but the needs of other customers waiting for their rental. Abysmal customer service.Reviewed Apr 10 2023

The car pick-up in Charlotte is chaotic and long. The car I was assigned stank of cigarette smoke. When I dropped the car off, the line of returns stretched outside the return area and I was not given a receipt upon return, so I didn't have proof that my rental had ended.Reviewed Oct 18 2022

The counter service was excellent, fast and extremely professional. The interior of the vehicle was dirty. I was not happy with that, everything else was fine.Reviewed Sep 27 2022

The car was dirty, smoke filled smell, back hatch covered in soot and dirt. The tank was 3/4 full not full as they stated. A dent on the bumper needed to be pointed out. Tire pressure in front right tire was 19 and we needed to pull of road, find a gas station and fill it up. No discounts offered for 3 nights. The bill was $317, hardly inexpensive. A horrible experience will never rent with them again.Reviewed Sep 13 2022
