Pickup was very poor. The staff at the front desk were very nice and professional. The problems began when selecting and picking up the car. We were asked to check the condition of a black car in an closed garage with poor lighting. Next to impossible. Then you have to show the problems to an agent who has some sort of screen to look further. About a dozen people were all leaving at once and so it took the better part of an hour from being shown the car to actually leaving the airport. Once we got it out into the light it was obvious we had missed a scratch. Upon dropping off, the process was very fast. However I wasn't given a receipt, and the one promised to my email never came. So now I have to chase it down. The car itself was otherwise fine, and was problem free.Reviewed Jun 22 2023

Great price watch out for feesPros:Car was $200 for a week. And they gave us a slight upgrade with gps.Cons:When I went to pay i was charged for roadside assistance and insurance which I was not asked to purchase which doubled the cost of the rental. I had to work with their management to take the charges off. Had I not had the time I would have had to call and fight on the phone. Be aware of those before leaving with car.Reviewed Jul 1 2017
