Pros: car Was better than I expected
Cons: 1) Alamo found one of the types to have a chip out of it so keep our GBP 300 deposit. Absolutely certain it was not us who did that ( we only did 60 miles and the car was left in secure parking over night). ......double and triple check before you hire! Video your car,

Poor info and off airport rental
Pros: The lady that helped us was very patient and polite. She must meditate and listen to relaxing music in her free time to be able to cope with all the angry customers she gets.
Cons: Off airport. Compulsary insurance which costs a fortune. From the look of it the cars that were provided had quite some damage already so maintanance/turnover is questionable. Uber was a lot more afordable in our case. We ended up going back to the airport and taking a taxi.
