The gas amount I was told was in the car at pickup was not correct. I had to return the car with more gas than was in it when I picked it up.Reviewed Apr 4 2024
review fromkayak
What's the point selecting a car category if every time I get told "this is what we have, take it or leave it"? You've got me by the short and curlys, because I'm not exactly about to switch to taking the bus, am I? The check in was slap dash. The car looked a bit rough. I had to go find someone to record the damage to it so as to not risk being told I'd caused it. Car rental isn't some new business. We've had decades of doing this, so why did I have to advocate so hard for myself? The customer experience was completely lacking. Probably because consolidation has resulted in so few companies and therefore not much competition.Reviewed Mar 1 2024

We were given the oldest most beat up van on the lot even though newer better looking ones were available. The van was dirty and had trash inside. The van needed an alignment. Every time you press the brakes the van would shake terribly.Reviewed Jan 22 2024
