Since we booked with Kayak for the GRR airport we assumed the car would be at the airport. The car was offsite at a location with no shuttle which also closed at noon which was when our flight arrived. After standing in line at the airport desk for 20-30 minutes the clerk told us we had 20 minutes to make it to the other site before it closed... they were off by an hour. So after taking a cab to and back from the closed site we had to rebook a car. Which made us late to our destination. Which made me look irresponsible. Pretty bad experience all around.Reviewed 28 Mar 2024

When I arrived at the airport with my reservation I had to wait over 45 minutes for a vehicle, I was given a huge SUV with 60,000 miles on it with expired license plates and several things wrong with it, the engine light was on, change oil soon, navigation system not working and did I mention it had over 60,000 miles and the windows were filthy dirty. I had to return the car after 48 hours which meant I had to drive over 100 miles. I was told I wouldn’t be charged for the gas for my inconvenience and then it was on my bill, all in all a pretty bad experience other than the people behind the counter at GRR trying to be as helpful as possible.Reviewed 22 Sep 2022

Overall it was an excellent experience. The only thing that could have been better was that the wind shield had a strange sap or something that we could not get off with the wipers. Also the tire sensor was going off for the front right wheel. We think it was a sensor error because the psi levels would go up while we were driving. Pick up and drop off were seamless- the staff was nice and professional. Overall a great experience.Reviewed 14 Sep 2022
