Pros:The staff was unfriendly not helpful and kinda terrible . I didnt like anything about this experience and 10/10 do not recommendCons:They could have been more helpful. I was $10.00 short on a hidden deposit I was unaware of until my arrival. Therefore I had to call my grandmother so she could come use her card. Since it was a different card they charged me an extra 50 dollars because she was a driver. Obviously she wasn't a driver she was just helping me out. They didnt care about the dilemma and made no attempt to help me out. The process that should have been 5 mins took an extra hour l after already being on the plane for 8 hours. The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful through the whole process.Reviewed Aug 17 2020

Pros:Got a replacement car easilyCons:The car I was given had a corroded battery. I left the airport and once I got to the next destination, the car died. I was on a time schedule and could not wait there for AAA so I had to Uber to my destination that was an hour away. Costing me over $120. Then when I Uber we back to the vehicle, I had to wait for AAA at 11 pm by myself in the cold. Then I had to take the car back to the rental and get a new car. Extremely inconvenient as I was in town for my grandmothers funeral and was almost late. Why was the battery not part of the vehicle inspection?!? The corrosion was leaking all over the battery. If someone had just lifted up the hood they would have seen it.Reviewed Jan 30 2020
