Cons:National didn't have my SUV available nor would they rent a car to me since I was local and not a distant traveler and booked on the same day. Why did they give the option on the website that a car was available? Wasted my time on Christmas day.Reviewed 5 Jan. 2021

Pros:Staff was great, car selection was great (plus free upgrade). Drop off was very easyCons:The pick up location garage is a little tight to navigate getting outReviewed 7 Nov. 2020

Pros:The staff was happy to see and serve me. Good customer service.Cons:Even though I called ahead, there were no full-sized trucks on the lot when I arrived. They had to get one from some auxiliary lot and drive it in for me. The truck they grabbed had not been properly cleaned - filthy steering wheels and side windows so dirty that I could not see the side mirrors. National made up for this by giving me a free day of rent (refund), and a deep apology from the management. So I will try them again next time.Reviewed 18 Dec. 2020

only 6 cars in the emerald islePros:We arrived just before 1 am at O'Hare. there was no wait time for pick-up. we chose a Nissan from the 6 cars available... it was in good mechanical working condition.Cons:The driver was informative but his attitude was lacking ~ my best description would be he was either tired or needed a vacation.. didn't help with suite cases, etc. when we walked up to the bus, he didn't even look at us. My husband is hard of hearing & didn't hear the back door on the bus open. Thankfully I heard it & realized he wanted us to enter through that door rather than at the front door of the bus. Apparently, the attendant had washed the car with the back window down a bit and the back seat was wet. also the car was not vacuumed thoroughly.Reviewed 19 Jul. 2018

Cons:Way too much confusion trying to locate a car in the class I had reserved (luxury). 5 different people asked if we needed help (we did) but none delivered. After much delay, we got a car that was just cleaned and we’re on our way. Not a very good showing.Reviewed 12 May 2019
