Ruined our trip!Cons:Our reservation was for 6 pm pick up. We even called that morning to confirm and asked if we could pick up earlier. They said if we arrive before the scheduled time we could wait for 2 hours and it's best to keep the reservation in the computer. We arrived at 6 to find the gates closed. Rental agency closed at 5:30. The guard said there was nothing he could do and to come back tomorrow. there we were stuck in a foreign country. Thanks to our uber driver he found a different rental company but we ended up paying more than double. What kind of company would allow a 6 pm reservation at a location that closes at 5:30?!?!. TERRIBLE!Reviewed 19 Apr. 2018

Cons:When I arrived at the counter to pick up the car I was told purchasing the rental car's insurance was NOT optional, I had to purchase one of two plans, otherwise they would not rent the car to me. If the insurance was not optional, then it should have been shown in the original price of renting the car. A definite bait & switch which I didn't appreciate. $300 for the car, $250 for the insurance, kind of changes the value of the rental.Reviewed 12 Mar. 2020
