Pros:Easy drop offCons:The staff arrived late to open and had to set up before helping customers. Should be there early to set up before opening. Ordered full sz suv but got small kia that did not fit the 7 paasengers and 4 luggage that was expected.Reviewed 2020 Feb 17

Pros:NothingCons:I had to worst experience with this transaction. I entered the dates for my rental incorrectly. I needed Thursday to Sunday. I made a mistake and entered Friday to Sunday. I realized it right away and tried to contact you. Of course there was no way to contact you. Since you book through PriceLine I finally got in touch with them. They were NO help at all. I simply wanted to add one more day to my rental. I wanted to PAY MORE MONEY to add one more day and they would not help me at all. Their only optioins were to cancel and pay a cancellation fee of $49 or keep the rental, create a new booking for the one day, pick up that car, bring that car back the next day and pick up the other car. Absolutely ridiculous! I ended up just cancelling. And I will never use your service again. I'd rather pay more than go through this again.Reviewed 2020 Feb 10

Pros:The price was good for a day rental split between the seven of us using the mini-van for the day.Cons:I've rented many cars before and the staff person was pretty blase and didn't explain pretty normal things to explain well. For example, as he handed me the receipt he just, here's your total, with the deposit.". Now, I know how a deposit for a rental works, but let's say you didn't, let's say it's your first time. What I've heard other associates say in the past is, "You'll notice a deposit of $200. You'll see this on your credit card balance, but once you return the car, this amount will go back on your credit card with 1-3 business days, so no worries, we aren't charing you $200! This line here is your total." It's little details like that. Another example: He offered us the option of two different models of mini-vans. Not being familiar with mini-vans I asked for his opinion/suggestion. He said, "I'll put you the Chrysler,". I said, "Oh, any particular reason?" He just kinda looked at me and said, "Well, it's a mini-van, like you wanted, right?" Um...I was hoping to hear, "Oh, I like the Chrysler better because it has more leg room," or "they're both comparable vehicles, so I think you'll like either," SOMETHING! He totally didn't have customer service 101 down. It did seem he was there by himself, in which case he could say, "I'm sorry I'm going through this so quickly with you, I'm here alone today, and I have all these people to help, so I'm just trying to help you as efficiently as possible,". He just didn't seem like he understood customer serivce. Also, I notice that almost all rental car places don't disclose important info to check BEFORE you rent: Cost of adding a driver (even though when I called I said I wanted to do that and they said, "yes we can do that) but price was never mentioned, can you leave your own vehicle there or not (not all rental cars will allow that!), etc. This is a general complaint to the enitre industry.Reviewed 2020 Jan 06

Pros:I didn't like anything about my experience. For one I was never able to pick up the car Becuz I do not have a credit card TWO the payment was taken out of my account regardless that I was never able to pick up a car. I would really REALLYA LIKE the payment reversed from my account IMMEDIATELY. The money should have never been taken from my account in the first place. So I need to reversed immediately. Thank you.Cons:It could have been better if I was allowed to pick up the car since the payment was already taken.Reviewed 2019 Dec 06
