Everything went smooth and easy. Took no more than 5 minutes on both ends. Our car was brand new and very clean. I will definitely use Dollar again.

The minivan that I reserved was not at the airport lot when I arrived as scheduled. I had to wait over an hour for it to be brought to the lot from wherever it was, then cleaned and washed. Very unsatisfactory!
