Pros:Beautiful car and easy rental/pickup/drop off process.
Cons:Cheap, but they only gave me 200 km for free. So after 200, they charged me around $1 USD per km.
Pros:Ease of pick up and drop off at the airport.
Cons:The car had a mileage limit, which I didn't read. The price of my car rental more than doubled when I drove over 200km.
Pros:We booked online from the baggage claim and picked up the car 5 minutes later. It was a great price in a very expensive place. They included a device which automatically paid tolls. No line at all to pick up or drop off.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Quick and easy pick up and drop off, staff were efficient
8.0 Very good
Pros:The pick up and ease was wonderful. The car was very nice.
Cons:The drop-off was a nightmare. The drop-off location was extremely difficult to find, no signage telling us where to park, where to drop the keys, etc. We had to do a lot of guessing and walking around asking and looking for help. In the end, we weren't sure we had done the right thing or that we had left the car or the keys in the right spot. The support phone number had no answer.
