My van reservation was for Friday, June 28 at 8:00 am. When I walked into the lobby, there were two customers waiting and no reservation agent there. Long story short, the reservation agent arrived at work at 8:45 am. By that time 6 customers were waiting. She was pleasant and efficient when she arrived but the delay set my trip back by an hour. The van was great, but I would not book here again.

Everything was fine, I was running late and called to let them know. Suman waited for me patiently and even helped me check my car for and damages/scratches instead of how they make you do it yourself other places

Once you arrive you call for pickup. When they arrived the van they picked us up in was not that clean, and not the quality of rental I'm used to. I asked if it was ours and they said yes. Once we got to the rental facility they're were other newer vans, but I didn't want to move everything again. The other surprise was that they close at like 4pm so my rental was actually 25 more dollars than I paid because I had to leave it at airport parking. What's the point of prepaying for a specified time is there are actually additional charges?

I feel the employees at this spot were a little competitive with each other and not will to work together which made the employee working with us seem like he didn't know what he was doing.

I was totally unfamiliar with the area and asked for a map. These folks had just run out of maps before I came along to pick up my car. They didn't have any. I told the address where I was going and they shifted into the mode of warning me not to take either of the two toll roads I might come across on my way to my destination, but had no way of telling--or showing me on a map, ANY MAP--where that was and where those toll roads were and how I could avoid them. I finally hopped in the car and drove off, stopping at the first mini-mart/gas station where the two gals behind the counter whipped out their cell phones and helped me figure out where to go. The car I rented, whatever it was, wasn't totally full of gas, but it was an OK car. The folks in the office need to be prepared much better.

The Midway Car Rental is located off-airport. We called and the shuttle came reasonably quickly. The vehicle was a new Toyota SUV (just 4 miles on odometer!). Great car. We returned on Saturday, about 8 AM, to a closed and locked office. Called the phone number shown on the contract. Got an answering machine that said the message mailbox was not set up yet. It was way too far to walk to the terminal, so we called a taxi service. The Midway people showed up before the taxi arrived, and took to the terminal. By the way, the Midway office is closed on Sunday! Really!? So unless you arrange your schedule to rent or return only between 9 AM - 5 PM...

My van was 2 hours late because it broke down before making it to their shop from another location. When they did call me, it took over an hour to check me out because they actually were not ready for me. The van didnt even have gas and I had to fill my own tank when I got the van after waiting for an hour. The worst if all is when I got my rental to go to snow for the day with my family the van broke down and left me stranded for over 3 hours on the side of the road. Midway did bring me a new van but after my vacation was ruined. They assured me they would compensate me properly for all the money lost on my trip, but only got an $81 refund, which I am still waiting to receive. This was the worst rental experience.

I was accused of returning the vehicle with a chip in the window. I initially had to point out three door dings on the drivers door, to the agent when he told me all has been inspected and I was ready to drive it and I insisted that he make a note of it on his tablet and he did and I still refuse to believe the window chip occured during my possession; therefore, your service is ranked lower and poorer than any scale can ever measure, absolute failure in my book. I will never ever rent from you ever again.
