None, still waiting for my deposit back and I see they billed my credit card again two days later? Same amount as the damage deposit. I better get that reversed!Reviewed 10 Apr 2024

Cons:extremely dishonest staff, promised 300$ but ended up charging 658$Reviewed 29 Dec 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Pick up/drop off were confusing and not explained at all. We had to call the company and were told to meet at a different location than publicized.Reviewed 4 Feb 2020

Pros:Good priceCons:Didn’t get the honda HRV we expected even I requested in advance to ensure that’s what I reserved for.Reviewed 9 Dec 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Staff was friendly and helpful. Car was niceCons:The shuttle service is lacking compared to other car rentals. Customers arriving from other countries may not be able to call them for a pickup. Some kind of texting option would work better. Also, there was no early shuttle available to return to the airport. They were helpful and arranged a cab.Reviewed 24 Sep 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Although the young man at the desk did not seem eager to help, when pressed, he said the manager might help us find another car rental place. And he did. That was appreciatedCons:I feel having a phone system that allows call to be answered and messages received would be helpful. When we were running late and called to tell them no one answered and the mailbox was full. We could not leave a message. As a consequence the car we reserved was given to someone else.Reviewed 22 Sep 2019
review fromkayak
Cons:The check in process was about an hour. The car that we were assigned was driven off of the lot to get cleaned just as we were done signing over four contracts. This led to another long delay. We recommend using another car service if you want a timely departure and good customer service.Reviewed 29 Aug 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Good car, roomy and nice to drive.Cons:When we arrived we discovered that I had reserved our vacation with one day missing. The “fix” for an 8 day rental, adding only one day, more than offered DOUBLED our expense. We will never use this company ever again.Reviewed 16 Jun 2019
review fromkayak
Cons:This is supposed to be an airport car rental but they close at 6:00 and you can’t pick up your car after that. Unbelievable. And don’t try to pick it up a second sadly either or they’ll try to charge you for an extra day.Reviewed 16 Apr 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:The car was really nice even though it was dirtyCons:Clean car, pickup really complicated (can only call a local number no email which makes it stressful/difficult), offsite, multiple names of rental car place, charged actual deposit instead of putting pending/hold on cardReviewed 9 Apr 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:What I liked was the staff. They worked hard to remedy the situation while explaining what went wrong in the web booking. Their team effort to make it right for us was very appreciated. I know in the future that I can trust this company to do the right thing. I liked these guys and their effort madeCons:To compete with the big companies they could be better at streamlining pick up and drop off since they are offsite. Technology could really enhance that. Uniforms project professionalism. It is these points that could really enhance their business.Reviewed 5 Mar 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Fuel economy and the model of vehicle available.Cons:Interior windows needs cleaning. Sheen from wax cleaner/buildup was a safety hazard once the while faced the sunlight.Reviewed 11 Feb 2019
