my experience with pick up and drop off were great. the staff are so personable, polite, etc. really appreciate that in a rental company. had an issue with the radio in my rental and they switched the vehicle hassle free for me, at a location that was closer to where i was staying as i live out of town. I will use them from now on when i visit! Only down side is the cost of their daily insurance. other companies have cheaper rates. but not necessarily a deal breaker

  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
