Showed up and they did not have the Ford a mustang car we reserved . At first they tried to offer an “upgrade” but that was a hybrid or Chrysler which is a joke. We ended up taking a Chevy Camaro. Car was filthy and covered in dust and bird poop. I returned the car full but they still charge me for 3 gallons of gas totaling over $35! It was a good deal for a sporty car but not worth the hassle and extra fees.Reviewed 2022 Jul 29

Customer service was great! Really friendly and helpful. The first car we rented had a low tire pressure light on. We got a replacement quickly and we’re on our way.Reviewed 2022 Apr 17

Pick up was great. Very helpful staff. Drop off was a different story. Expect no parking spots to drop off your rental. Staff didn’t really care about the situation.Reviewed 2021 Nov 22

Be careful of the desk agent. Asked if I wanted extended coverage, I stated “no extra insurance is needed” and somehow ended up with a huge added insurance charge. He talked to fast and just pointed where to sign. My statement to him was clear, what does “no extra insurance” mean???Reviewed 2021 Nov 15

My flight arrived about 2 hours early. Didn't have my car so had to give me a more expensive car. I get it that inventory comes and goes, but I didn't appreciate the attitude of the check-in desk person. Quite rude.Reviewed 2021 Oct 31
