Waited 2 hours in line during check in in order to get a car. Slowest system I’ve ever seen for car pick up. Can’t believe in 2024 this isn’t a kiosk or there isn’t a more efficient way to check in. I’m all for face to face business but in this case 2 people to check in 20+ people in 2 hours detracts from the customer experience.Reviewed 10 Apr 2024

I received an incorrect damage claim even after showing video proof of pre-existing damage after checking the car back in at destination. Had to go through Customer Service to fix this. Very annoying.Reviewed 22 Mar 2024

Well, after making me wait in the 10° weather for over half an hour these people refused to rent a car to me because my ID had a piece of tape on it. I literally had to walk over a mile in the snow and got sick because of this. The manager was one of the rudest people I’ve ever dealt with in my life. Stay away from this place and rent from anywhere in the world but this place.Reviewed 27 Jan 2024
