Gas wasnt filled, car was upgraded and cost more than wanted,Reviewed Jul 19 2024

Despite taking my rental fee with a debit card, they would not release the vehicle to me. I was over 1,000 miles from home, at 0130 in the morning, and left without a vehicle. I was also told it could take up to 2 months for a refund. The gent with whom I dealt at the counter was kind and sympathetic, but the experience was unacceptable.Reviewed Jul 14 2024

Everything about the service and price was acceptable. My spouse is disabled and struggles to walk long distances. Getting from the rental return to the airport terminals while disabled was an unclear process. We managed, but if there was something else we could have some to have a wheelchair available there, I didn't find it.Reviewed Jun 24 2024

Cons:Waited in line an hour (at 10:pm) at the counter. Got my arm twisted to upgrade, but declined. Got the upgrade anyway, because they had no other cars. Received bill by email and full charge put on card, but I had already pre-paid part of the rental.Reviewed May 13 2021

Pros:Staff was nice.Cons:1) They didn't have the car I'd requested or anything similar. 2) Car was dirty. They used the same dirty rag to wipe windows (which were smeared and hard to see thru) Crumbs were not fully vacuumed. Seats had dirt spots that could easily have been wiped off. 3) POOR signs. There was an exit sign pointing me to drive over road spikes. They had a stop sign... This was apparently for employees to bring in cars. They should have had a "do not enter sign" as well as a gate to prevent the confusion. When I mistakenly drove over the spikes, it sounded like this happens OFTEN. :(Reviewed May 10 2021

Cons:I asked now to have the coverage on the car as I already had insurance to cover me for collision and theft. They didn’t remove it from my fees and customer service said they couldn’t take it off since it was already finalized.Reviewed May 9 2021
