Pros:The staff member that helped me rent the car was very nice and the process was extremely easy.Cons:The line to pick up my already reserved car was pretty long (I was 10th in line) and there were only 2 people there so I had to wait overall about 30 minutes. Then upon leaving the woman at the booth was screaming to somebody at the phone that she needed someone to relieve her because she had been there all day, she was very upset and made it very uncomfortableReviewed 7 Feb 2021

Pros:Great quality compact car for the price.Cons:I waited 2 hours & 20 minutes on line just to pick up my rental, then an additional 20 minutes to get the car in the lot. We had to cancel our plans for the day since unlike my previous rentals this pick up took up our day. When your trip is short you don’t want to spend hours waiting for a cheaper rental price. I’d rather pay more money for faster service. Only 2 employees were working during a high volume time.Reviewed 19 Feb 2021

Pros:Drop off in Miami was very easy. Vehicle size fit our needs.Cons:The line to obtain our vehicle in Ft. Lauderdale was over an hour long. Only 3 guest associates were helping people, but the line was moving very slow. Our own process took only a few minutes once we got to an agent, but unfortunately, He did not explain Florida SunPass or that there are electronic tolls all over the state. The tolls were very confusing for me, and when I called customer service, they stated EACH toll charge could cost me $10, when I read the signs of the toll each ranged from .49 cent to .94 cents. I feel there is dishonesty in not telling a customer that you might charge me $10 EACH TOLL fee. I was told to wait for the bill in the mail to dispute the charges and they might cut the charge by 50%. Also, the vehicle was not cleaned upon pick up as we found cigarette ashes inside the vehicle and it smelled very strong of smoke. Very gross.Reviewed 23 Feb 2021

Pros:Easy to rent online.Cons:I was not even able to get to Ft Lauderdale to pick up the car because the airline canceled our flight from Costa Rica due to COVID19. There was no way to contact the rental car company because we are still stranded in a foreign country with no way to call. We wanted to request a refund because our flight was canceled. It was not disclosed to us that the rental was non-refundable until after the car was booked.Reviewed 3 Jun 2020

Cons:The shuttle took a long time. There was only one person working the counter for Thrifty, Dollar and Hertz. The first car offered to me reeked of cigarettes - they did give me a different car with no problem. There was nobody present at drop off so you had to take the "leave your keys in the car and we will email you" optionReviewed 3 Aug 2020

Pros:The lady at the counter was nice.Cons:The condition of the car was terrible. Windows were filthy inside and out. Trunk would not shut good. Passenger rear door and trunk lid dented. Inside was stained badly and had an odor. Center console lid damaged. 12v plug was inop. One day I was driving and drivers side front bumper came loose. Car would hesitate sometimes on acceleration. Wiper blades just streaked the window.Reviewed 3 Jan 2021

Pros:Dropoff was easy.Cons:At the desk signing the agreement, the attendant did not offer an option to not pay extra insurance. I declined the highest level, was still tricked into excessive loss/damage waiver of $40/day, I regret that.He was well coached to suck dollars from my pocket outside of the on line agreement. That was a lousy thing to do. Getting the car also was extremely unorganized, a half dozen people surrounding an agent in the garage, we got what we wanted, but stressful and disorganized. Yhe cheaper the car, the less likely those people were to get what they wanted.Reviewed 9 Dec 2019
