Cons:I was denied a car because I was 21 without a credit card.Reviewed Mar 16 2021

Cons:Agent at destination said she would have original agent open the contract and email me a receipt when it was closed. I never received a receipt. When attempting to rent from Avis in another city, I was asked why I never returned the first rental.Reviewed Apr 11 2017

Efficient once at booth but had to wait 45' for aiPros:Efficient service, nice late model car (Mazda 6 with 1600 miles on the meter) fast in and out, predictable charges.Cons:Had to wait over 30' for the airport shuttle in 34 degree temperatures while other companies' shuttles kept passing through 3-4 times each. I called the office but I couldn't reach a live person. Finally I called their road assistance line and asked to be connected with someone at the office to get a shuttle sent to where several of us were waiting by that point. After another 10' on hold, the shuttle showed up. The driver, apologized profusely and said that "... to be honest [they] have several drivers who like to loaf on the job." I frankly never had such an experience by a large company in a major airport. And finally, the "in terminal" characterization is not entirely accurate as one has to drive 5' to the car rental place (45' wait for the shuttle notwithstanding).Reviewed Dec 25 2016
