We didn’t like being told there was not a 7 person vehicle on hand that fit our order. We did like that they set aside a ford explorer that did meet our criteriaReviewed 2 Jun 2024

Pros:Bad service most unreliable in honoring reservations. On the evening of 5/22/2021 at approximately 1 pm , I was informed, the vehicle would not be available for pick up on 5/22/2021 @ 8 pm , instead I could pick it up on the following day @ 7 am. My reservation was for a pick up truck, they were offering me a mid sized SUV which would not serve my purpose. It caused me delay and inconvenience and additional expenses renting from another company for a pick up truck at short notice.Cons:Compensation for dishonor of reservation and additional expensesReviewed 29 May 2021
