Pros:cost--however they cancelled our reservationCons:Fox cancelled our reservation without notice so when I arrived we had no car and I was left trying to locate a car last minute paying $307 more for a much smaller car. Very disappointing.Reviewed 8 Jul. 2021

Pros:Quick and friendly service. The service center was off site so you were picked up from the airport from their shuttle service but there wasn’t a line and check in and out was super fast compared to those poor people waiting in the airport lines.Cons:It was a little confusing on where to find the shuttle to get to Fox but once I just asked someone we were pointed in the right direction.Reviewed 8 Jul. 2021

Pros:The staff was nice. They helped me talk with the rental company nextdoor when the rental agreement did not work out for me.Cons:They do not allow for driving in Michigan, with fines and reporting through GPS tracking. Very strange policy in my opinion, and one that was not clear at all upon making the rental reservation.Reviewed 7 Jul. 2021

Pros:Drop off was good and easy. The pick up was the a nightmare. took over an hour. there was only 4 people in front of me. Two workers moving slower then I can believe with no sense of purpose. Other workers seemed to just be standing around. I will never use Fox again. I would rather pay extra and go to a place with reliability.Cons:The work ethics of the employees. they were not rude. They just moved with no care at all. as I stood in line I only watched it grow behind me and never seemed to move forward. It took an hour just to get a car. I was number 4 in line. How is that possible??? I was grinding my teeth the whole time.Reviewed 7 Jul. 2021

Pros:Staff was fine. Tried to upsell at every opportunity which was irritating.Cons:Drop off: Booth at drive was unmanned. Signage directing drop off of cars to booth further into SeaTac garage were confusing. Just handing car key to man at booth with NO receipt was odd, considering the multiple times I signed my name and initials to rent the thing.Reviewed 7 Jul. 2021

Pros:The return was easyCons:Very hard up-sell at the time of the pick up. The car was very used up. had about 55k miles on it and felt unsafe to drive due to some noise from the rear wheel In addition the car was very dirty inside and out. I don't think they clean the cars at allReviewed 7 Jul. 2021
