Pros:The staff was friendly and helpful. Pick up and drop off was easy.Cons:I thought it was pricey but it was the cheapest option, so could just be that I don’t rent card very often.Reviewed 19 May 2021

Cons:They need to make it explicitly clear (online and at rental kiosk) that they do not accept Debit cards so we don’t wait an hour in line at the airport only to find out that I can’t rent a car when I finally speak to the employee.Reviewed 15 May 2021

Pros:Easy pick up process, friendly staff.Cons:Incorrect billing, that I only found out about after checking with my bank - no receipt at drop-off, no reason for extra charge. The company fixed the problem, but I had to call in and inquire and wait for a refund.Reviewed 19 Nov 2019
