Cons: Arrived to the airport of my destination, called the number provided for pickup, no one pickups the phone for 30 min, took the taxi and rented elsewhere the next day. I have called the number earlier that day to confirm that someone will pick me up at the time of my arrival (6:40pm).

Cons: Had my pickup at 8 am- called several times for my pickup between 7:45 - 8:20 am - no answer! Had to call corporate to get a hold of them. Waited for over 25 min for a pickup which never came. The gentleman from Discount next door politely offered me a ride (apparently this happens a lot with Economy) when arrived at the discount store, I had to walk over to the actual Economy store with my luggage. My car smelled funny and was dirty! When asked why the car was dirty - was told it's because it's the morning and they didn't have time to clean. Nonetheless, when I dropped off my car- I showed up 2.5 hours prior to my flight- the store was about to close (which is ridiculous !!) another couple had just picked up their car and we're coming back in to change company- their car was disgusting too... They walked over to discount! spend the extra couple of dollars- not worth the frustration...

Rinky dink operation
Pros: This car rental place is off airport. The shuttle was 30 minutes wait so I took a cab. $17. Office was dirty, staff was sullen, and my "premium" car was a Honda accord, a little different than the Mercedes pictured. Gas tank was at 3/4. Lousy experience overall.

Pros: Absolutely nothing to like.
Cons: This was disgraceful. I have rented cars and traveled my entire life, and have never wanted to write a negative review about anything before. But this company just begged for it. I reserved a car online in advance and read the fine print. Nowhere did it mention anything about car insurance and like any other company, one would figure that they'd ask if I'd like to take their insurance or not. Instead, as I'm standing in front of them after flying in from NY, they ask me for proof of car insurance to show that I had full collision coverage. Since I, like everyone else I know, keep my insurance in my car or at home, the gentleman tried to force me to take their insurance for $500...and pointed to a sign in the dingy office stating that...yet it was never posted anywhere else in advance. When I declined to rent from him, he told me he was charging me for the first day even though my reservation stated that I wouldn't be charged until I accepted the car. I wound up renting at the airport for the same price with a major company...and it took me 5 minutes to do so. Needless to say, I have spoken with my credit card company who will be fighting this charge for me. I would advise anyone to use a familiar company at the airport even if it is slightly more. You get what you pay for.
