The car drop off location closes before the pandemic started. So after it took hours to get a hold of a real person and get a new drop off location, made me late for my job.

My husband’s credit card had been compromised, and we used one of mine to rent the car. He was not allowed to be on the agreement, and couldn’t drive the car — only me. It was a great difficulty, and spoiled the trip.

Location was closed and no one contacted me before. I had to take a $15 cab to another location to get the car with a promise of reimbursement that never materialized. A huge hassle.

The car was dirty and clearly not sanitized. With all that’s going on it was a great disappointment. Good thing I had wipes and Lysol to spray everything myself.
