Cons:

The car was not ready when we came to get it and we waited 4 hours.... Then we were double charged for the daily insurance, a $50 error. We were told the credit card would not be processed until we brought the car back, but it was processed immediately.! also, the $500 deposit was immediately charged. My bank sends me a text message when my account is accessed... All charges, including the overcharge and the deposit, were taken out of my account immediately. At check in, the error was fixed, and another $254 was charged (the actual price) Now, I need to dispute the $825 which went through my account. LOOK at your charges carefully before paying.!!

Drop off directly on the airport, would be awesome, since Liberia office is far from the airport, and even though company provide shuttle bus, it is still a waste of time going back and forth. I have hardly made it to my plane, because of huge traffic on the route (road construction) and accident between airport and the renting office.
