My booking was for an Intermediate car. They gave me an Hyundai Accent definitely a compact not an intermediate. A Corolla or an Elantra would have been intermediate.

Pros:

10 minutes of paperwork and I was on my way in a nice new family vehicle for a few days! I will definitely go back if needed in the future

Cons:

I wasn't really sure if I needed the added "bumper to bumper" insurance protection? I thought there would be insurance on it already if I was renting it lol so instead of only having to pay $15 per day like it said online I think it was closer to $50-60. Unlimited mileage though so still not bad :)
