Pros:Personnel wss great and understanding
Pros:On Oct. 18 the Dollar agent couldn't scan my card. Asked to type in the number, he simply said, we don't do that. We can't rent you the car you reserved. The Enterprise agent six feet away, did scan my card and gave a polite explanation of why none of them could type in my number.
