Nissan was a very poor car
paulSeptember 3, 2017
Location of rental desk was only a short walk from arrivals and luggage collection.
We booked a Ford Escape (or similar) and were given a Jeep Compass. This to me was an inferior car. The engine management light came on 5 to 10 miles short of our drop of at the airport. I had intended to give the car back full. However, I was concerned that if we stopped for fuel the car may not have restarted and we could have missed our flight.

Everything was easy and straightforward which was good as this was the first time I'd rented a car
I had to point out that the car came with a free tank when the rep tried to sell me petrol Also that extra drivers were free

Staff were very courteous. Car was great. Could walk to where I picked the car up. Car drop off was super efficient.

Very little
The condition of the car, the quality of the car. Even the man who accepted our return said we were unlucky to have gotten such a poor quality vehicle
CarolineJuly 26, 2016
It was just easy from start to finish
LesleyMay 27, 2016
Ability to purchase the fuel in advance.
May 17, 2016
Exact make model not available, but replacement OK
Original vehicle started to display Maintenence waning light necessitating a visit to another airport for another car. Sat Nav too expensive and NOT value for money. They are now a commodity item and should not be charged at a premium price.

Clean, new car
Took a little time at the desk but nothing outrageous
AllanNovember 23, 2015
My only complaint was when I booked the car I paid for a tank of fuel.The young lady behind the counter insisted that the car came back with a full tank I was not prepared to argue the point at that time as she was very insistent that she was right It cost me $35 to do this and on dropping the car off I was told there was no need to fill the tank
October 25, 2015
No problems
September 16, 2015
Lots of scratches which we had to report
IanSeptember 15, 2015

AnnJuly 8, 2015

MatthewApril 11, 2015
Good car. Friendly staff
March 25, 2015
Great car, good prices!
Please don't ask more than ONCE if I want to upgrade to a bigger, and more expensive, model. If I wanted another car I would've booked another car.

Staff were very good

michaelOctober 28, 2014
Friendly staff and good car.
October 26, 2014
Ease of collection and return. Vehicle in sound mechanical order
As usual in U.S.A., counter staff tried to upgrade the sale, through insurance, size and gas upgrades.
TerenceOctober 12, 2014
Great service
KeithAugust 8, 2014
Fast and easy pickup.
LionelJune 30, 2014
Counter guys were great to work with. Liked that we were talked into a BMW at pick up time. Was super fun to drive and made the vacation extra special. Exchange people and drop off folks were all wonderful.
Didn't like that we had to return to the airport to trade out the BMW (flat tire issues) for a Lincoln in the middle of our trip. Also would have rather had another BMW, which is what the counter person convinced us to take when we first picked up the car. The Lincoln wasn't worth the extra money.

Low cost and speed of service.
HenryMay 19, 2014
Returned the car with full tank of gas but we were then told we had paid for a tank of gas anyway. We would appreciate a $40 refund please.
