Overall a good experience with a couple of opportu
Pros: AMPM texted us instructions for getting to our pick-up point.
I might have preferred this via e-mail, but it was still helpful to get.
Rosa who processed our info upon arriving was very nice, as was the gentleman who she left instructions for that took us straight to our terminal on our way back in the very car we had rented. That simplified and sped up getting to our flight.
Finally, the car itself was in good shape and a good ride that fit the bill. I would rent from them again.
Cons: The text message of instructions said to get off at the first stop which would be Lot C. But the driver of our shuttle said our first stop was the Cell Phone Wait Lot and that the 2nd stop would be Lot C, and was adamant they were different stops. Thankfully, I chose to ignore him, I stepped off the shuttle and recognized that the two were very close - virtually the same location - so we went with the former and our driver was there waiting for us, but this was confusing. Not AMPM's fault, but knowing the unreliability of shuttle drivers, maybe the text message of instructions could have been clearer, or included an image of a map.
Speaking of the shuttle, we waited a good 15-20 minutes at the airport before the shuttle to our pick-up point arrived. One that was supposed to go to our destination did not stop at our waiting point. Another shuttle driver said that they were contracted by a different service, and that this skipping of the stop was not atypical.
This led to us getting our car later than we'd have desired, and getting stuck in traffic. So again, not strictly AMPM's fault, but a hiccup that I'm guessing another company with its own shuttle (or that had a better run partnership w/the shuttle company) might have avoided.
Finally, the Fiat car we ended up selecting had less-than-impressive acceleration, which would have been helpful in LA. Not AMPM's fault by any means - we could have chosen an Altima that was also present. But it might have been mentioned as we chose the pick-up.
