Key did not work and had to walk all the way back for an exchange - keys should be tested or have a person working at the rental lot.

They came and got me at the Marina despite all the fear about the virus. The car was clean and the people practiced distancing as much as possible. Conducted the transaction in little time outdoors. Perfect Website worked flawlessly.

Everyone was very friendly and the car was great! Always get a little confused when the final price is given, so many taxes and fees that's it's usually double the advertised price .
