Great car but they need to do better at explaining options
Pros: The car was a very smooth ride and drove very well. Was very handy to have the two extra seats in the back that made it comfortable for 6.
Cons: They were not very good at explaining all the extra charges associated with the insurance and gas options which cause my rental to wind up being almost double the original quoted price.

Pros: Staff at Rapid City, SD was friendly and cars were right out the airport exit doors.
Cons: Staff could of been more familiar with the additional insurance sold on the web site. They told me it didn't cover an additional driver, which is why I purchased it through you rather then budget.

Unadvertised fee
Cons: There was a mileage limit that was so low that I would not be able to complete my planned activities. They were quite willing to sell me a higher mileage rate, but the original mileage restriction was not advertised (to my recollection), so I did not have an option but to add this fee. If I had this knowledge sooner I may have reserved with a different company.
