I reserved my car ahead of time which was a big time saver, the line was long but it was a busy time at the airport and in the middle of tourist season. Once I got to the counter the staff was pleasant and helpful!

The car was exactly as I had reserved, which was great. There was a back up in the line waiting to be helped, which was the only thing I will say was negative about the experience. Dropping the car off on return was very easy.

Nixon, the gentleman at the counter, for our 8:45 arrival, took care of four customers ahead of us and moved folks through promptly. The one issue we had was having our rental rate change by more than $50. He explained that when we called to explain our cancelled flight until 36 hours later, they changed our rate from $315 to $360ish because of different rates on different days. Said we should have just waited to pick up our car without calling. Why didn't the service person allow our rate to remain intact at $315? She never talked about this. Very disappointing. Can you refund the extra $50 to our account?????

We were supposed to get a nicer midsize car but they just gave us a Kia Soul and told us it was an upgrade!! And then charged us a fee they never told us about and said it’s on everyone’s bill- if that’s the case they should communicate that with every customer before renting
