Firm but polite staff. Good price. No car problems.

Cons:

Having to furnish utility bills in order to rent the car if you're using a debit card. Yeah, sure, they've probably been burned and it is their business and they can run it the way they want. They don't tell you until you get there that you need this additional paperwork, though, and it's only because I phoned to change the pickup time that I knew to bring it. No big deal, I guess, but be advised.

What did I like? A decent selection of vehicles to choose from. What I didn't like? 1. I payed thru this website just to get down there to pick up the car and be told that I couldn't use a Chime Credit card, I had to find a 4th party to put up the stupid deposit AND pay the extra daily fee for the "extra driver" since my friend, well he was not going. Avis / Payless, at least here in Topeka, suck mouse balls. 2. They didn't even walk me to the car and inspect it with me, I can only assume because he knew it was filthy and had plenty of dents and scratches to go with it along with a 3/4 full tank of gas.
