The car was nickel, we just regretted the absence of instructions, for example to operate the cruise control. This would have served us well for long trips.

This was the first time that I rented a 15 passenger van. I was totally satisfied. The van was great all around and got the job done. The staff was awesome. Very friendly, helpful and patient. The price is reasonable. I highly recommend renting from this business.
