Pros:

Pick up in Interlaken very efficient … Also the telephone operator who coordinated our decision to leave the car at Zurich airport rather than Interlaken was extremely helpful and efficient. The drop off at Zurich airport was quick , efficient and convenient, being in the same building as the departure areas.
