Too soon to tell.
Pros: The lady at the airport that rented me the car was super. The girl in control of the cars was off. We were directed 'to the end far right' for our economy car. In the section 'economy' we picked a car and drove it to the checkout. I gave the girl my paperwork and license. She was typing and saying, "I told them to the right and back." Then tells me we picked a car not in the economy section and that she had changed to an upgrade. We had paid for a toll box and this car didn't have one. The nice gentlemen said he would get us another car and just stay where we were....he would drive it up. He drove up behind us and we put our suitcases in the backseat of that car and drove off. Having just arrived from Norway we stopped to eat and put our suitcases in the trunk. That is when my daughter discovered a damaged back bumper. I reported it at the drop off in Boston.
Cons: The attitude of the girl working the check out. Was 'you picked a car from the wrong category' just a way to distract you so you are just relieved when they bring another car to you and you don't check for damages. I always take pictures....I did of the first car but not the second car till after I left the rental garage.

Pros: Other than the ridiculous drop off charge between Providence RI and Manchester NH the price was the most economical I found; interesting the week of car rental was equivalent cost to my airline ticket.
Cons: I chose a wildcard offer, which I understood to be the counter's choice. I was given a very high milage, tinny, not very clean Toyota Yarus. Very disappointed.

Pretty cool. Smooth.
Pros: I liked the pickup process. The car was up to date and I had them wash the car. The car was clean.
