It was a disaster!Pros:You said it will cost 267 frank I end up paying 987 frank for different reasons. Some of it my fault but I wasn't expecting that at all and the website fee was completely misleading.Reviewed Jul 5 2018

Challenges when collecting the rental car.Cons:The rental company didn't accept visa debit card. The rental was actually done by hertz. And from my experience hertz is very ridge and not friendly. I who'd prefer to know these things in advance.Reviewed Mar 5 2017
