Cons:

There was not a car available at the airport. So the call center representative said there was a car available in the city I was in. I did not think you had a office there. So, I asked him if he was sure twice. He said yes. I walked to the street he gave me. There was not a office. I checked the reservation. The office was 15 miles away in another city. i took a taxi. It was closed. I called your call center They were rude and did not understand why i was upset.

Pros:

New car

Cons:

Had rented an intermediate level car for fuel efficiency for the long one way drive. After waiting 30+ minutes for the rental shuttle to come to airport, we were taken to a dirty building that was chaotic. They didn’t have enough rentals so it was either take the inefficient SUV or wait even longer for another return. The SUV was dirty as well. The return location at Trenton airport lacks signs on the road telling you which lot to drop it off in as well as the prerecorded message when you call the location doesn’t help.
