Cons:

Please clarify by email which documents are needed when picking up the car. I had to make a return trip home to pick up my original passport (losing almost an hour) because they did not accept a scan or a certified copy. Another woman had a similar issue.

Be warned that the quote of KAYAK more than likely does not include everything. I landed up paying more than double than that which was quoted when I arrived at the airport. There was an airport fee, stamp duty and cont fee. There is also a basic insurance cover and a super cover if you didn't want to pay any excess. But the super cover didn't cover the windscreen or tyres - that was extra. Then there was an additional fee for picking the car up at a different location. All of these are reasonable but be upfront with all of the expenses!

Pros:

We experienced a flat tire on the first day. There was good communication with the customer service rep and the delivery driver to deliver the replacement tire the following day.

Cons:

At the time of pickup, the pickup location differed from the original reservation. The only way I knew was that I called in advance to confirm. They made no effort to inform me of the different location of our car, so it’s a good thing I called first. Upon drop off they did not have a final receipt of charges, which I felt was very unprofessional. Additionally, we experienced a flat tire on the first day of rental and I was unable to reach anyone from the emergency or office numbers that were given. Finally contacted the main Airport number and they were able to assist.
