5.6 Okay27 Mar 2019
Pros: I needed a point to point rental, and this was the only one that I could implement. It was possible with a couple of competitors as I discovered later and I could have avoided the trip to the airport, but the competitor websites were terrible and seemed to not allow one-way rentals or city pickup.Cons: Total lack of info on pickup and return. The pickup desk could make a printed map showing where the car actually is (it's not where the signs suggest). The car (Peugeot) was kind of disfunctional (failed to downshift while going up the mountain; terrible proximity detection system).
3.2 Mediocre9 Aug 2017
Horrible pickup experiencePros: Proximity of rental lot to airport (no shuttle)Cons: Upon pickup, car was very dirty inside and outside and the tank was not filled up. I brought this to a customer service rep who was annoyed by it, would not change the car, drove my fiancé and I like a mad man through the garage to get a quick wash. He put a gallon of gas in the tank, which did not fill up the car and explained to us that the gauge didn't work right which we found out later was inaccurate when we filled the car back up. It was unbelievable.
