Pros:

Car was ready for pick up in State College and drop off was easy in Kentucky

Cons:

The mileage must have been logged incorrectly at the pick up location because at drop off, it said we had driven over 5,000 miles! Good think we got unlimited miles with the rental!

You guys forgot to mention all of the hidden fees I’ll have to pay and it ended up being almost double the cost you guys “estimated”. Maybe try getting the actual value of the car next time.
