Pros:

Comfort, cleanliness and pickup and dropoff, except for the car not being an Intermediate, were pretty seamless.

Cons:

My booking was for an Intermediate car. They gave me an Hyundai Accent definitely a compact not an intermediate. A Corolla or an Elantra would have been intermediate.

I like that the car was nice and clean and ready to go when I got there. I had fast service and was on my way in five minutes. The return was very simple and also done in less than five minutes. The car was very nice and also very reliable. I will definitely use them again.

Pros:

10 minutes of paperwork and I was on my way in a nice new family vehicle for a few days! I will definitely go back if needed in the future

Cons:

I wasn't really sure if I needed the added "bumper to bumper" insurance protection? I thought there would be insurance on it already if I was renting it lol so instead of only having to pay $15 per day like it said online I think it was closer to $50-60. Unlimited mileage though so still not bad :)

Unlimited mileage through online provider.

Cons:

Having to wade through wet snow to get to my vehicle. Receiving a European car that would not start unless I stepped on the brake. Was not told about this by agent and had to make phone call to resolve the problem.
