Carrentals should NOT sell extra insurance, it’s scammish! The return wasn’t so easy, because the drop off location was very hard to find! The brand new vehicle was AWESOME...

We landed later than expected (around 145 when our original car pick up time was 12pm) and by the time we got our bags and got to the rental agency we found out they were closed (at 2pm). On a Saturday! It would have been nice to have been notified of this when booking a reservation with a 12pm pick up . It caused a big hassle and for us to have to pay an extraordinary price elsewhere because it was last minute.
