Pros:

They provided the incorrect address on the confirmation, they never have staff to come and pick you up or drop you You off after dropping off the car. When I called and told them that the address provided is incorrect and my Uber driver had to drop me off else where they didn’t even bother trying to help me, I had to pay for two Uber meanwhile I live bout 3miles away but they just kept saying they don’t have drivers.

Cons:

Get more staff that works during operations hours and not after 1pm. Not sure how you can run a business like that.

Pros:

Friendly staff and quick service without upselling.

Cons:

The parking lot is not marked well enough given the tight space. Painting on the ground would help determine where to pick up and drop off the cars and where to wait if you're getting dropped off or picked up by someone?

KAYAK

Pros:

Was going on a 3-day cross country road trip for California to Florida when we were upgraded for free frim a subcompact to SUV with no additional cost. The SUV comfort more than made up for the increased gas cost (especially since gas was so cheap through the South compared to CA). The service was fast and courteous on both ends: from pick up in CA to dropoff at Orlando Airport.
