Dirty parking lot, 35 minutes waiting time to pick up a reserved car with one person ahead in line and 3 people behind me who showed up after me. Have fastbreak registration which didn’t do me any good, less of what budget promises. Was told no car available for me because I showed up 75 minutes before reservation time (10:00), yet there were about 40 cars on the lot. Fazit: one too many of more recent entitled budget disappointments, will not consider this agency again no matter what their price offer is. Too many stupid sounding addons no one wants nor needs that are 500% overpriced in addition.Reviewed 23 Feb. 2024

The car was good. When I booked on the app my total was 210 along with insurance. When I returned the key they made a bill of 348. I had a quarrel and debate with them.. Then after an hour of this time waste they made a bill of 248 and a wrong one. I am not sure what's this. They don't agree with the bill you make. When we do the bookingReviewed 19 Dec. 2023

Everything with our experience was perfect with the exception of our pick up at JFK airport. The process is extremely inefficient and slow and took over one hour for something that should’ve taken 15 minutes and it was extremely crowded and the staff was extremely slow and unhelpful. It was a disappointed start to our experience. Our car was great and clean and we had no issues with our dropoff at LaGuardia airport. Thank you.Reviewed 18 Dec. 2023

The rental staff were rude and generally poor, the car wasn’t ready and came uncleaned and incorrectly fuelled. Not great. The vehicle did the job though and wasn’t horrific priced.Reviewed 4 Dec. 2023

I actually cancelled the reservation while waiting in line because there were so many frustrated people in the office that had been waiting for 45-60 minutes without receiving a car. It seemed that the chance that I would actually get a car was slim, so I went elsewhere.Reviewed 23 Oct. 2023
