Pros:Staff remained professional and friendly in poor working conditionsCons:Leave the pick up inside the airport and have someone deliver the cars to the door or have a golf cart to take the customer out to the car, it is very difficult dragging all your luggage out to a garage not knowing where your going. A handicapped person (me) will not do it again because I have bad legs and was so sore and tired when I finally got in the car I should not have been driving especially a car I’m not used to. And no there was nobody around to offer help just a sign saying go outside where our staff is working in a dark dingy shack !Reviewed 19 Nov 2020

Pros:Yes to both the questions. Staff was freindly.Cons:Car check over could have been done better. The driver's side mirror would not stay in place and I had to rely on the yellow warning lights on the mirror that a vehicle was near me at times.Reviewed 29 Sep 2020

Cons:The charge ended up being much higher than what we were told. Upfront pricing was what we had expected but we had to pay double what we saw. There were issues with drop off where they claimed we were given the wrong car and our account had been closed prematurely so we had to go to the main office for them to review and then they didn't clear anything up. They just made us stick around for 20 minutes while not keeping us in the loop and we never received a final receipt so it felt pretty obvious that there were overcharges being covered up. Will not be renting again.Reviewed 30 Dec 2019

Pros:Staff was friendly. Drop off was easy.Cons:Oil might have been in need of a change. Power steering should be checked. Also information on where basic controls are would have been nice. It took me a while yo figure out how to pop the trunk and gas cover.Reviewed 16 Dec 2019
