The whole process was easy. All the details were clearly explained, there was no hidden cost associated with this rental. Easy pick-up and even easier drop off. The shuttle was quick so we went in time at the airport.

The car was the basic model. Did not know that so what is still being built. No radio remote control. The ventilation could not be adjusted, so you could not air-condition the footwell on the coast and in the mountains fogged the windscreen, so you had to drive in the rain and 15 degrees outside temperature with windows open.

Thought that the car sounded too inexpensive to rent. $40 for the week. Come to find out that you have to also pay $500 for insurance. That kind of slight of hand when renting on line was not appreciated. Those kind of costs should be disclosed when renting.

Forced to take full coverage insurances. Finally paid 50$/day instead of 20$/d booked, had some snacks and forced to pay damages caused to the car.
