Easy service but watch out for expensesFriendly customer service and easy pickup and drop offUsually a rental agent goes through the contract in detail and we would have caught the car insurance they added that we didn't need. Our fault for not reading carefully before we signed but we were disappointed discovering they tacked on the expense without asking.
