DOROTHY San Diego Airport 22 May 2017
Liked being able to choose which car to hire. The queue for picking up the car was quite long and didn't seem to move very quickly. On returning the car we explained that we had used a couple of toll roads and no one could explain what we needed to do in this regard. We were given a phone number to call which didn't work!!

Helped with toll fees after we dropped the car off. Would have been good to have been warned about how to pay them. Some damage on the car but no one seemed interested.

Brilliant job!! Will definitely rent again from you.
Lionel San Diego Airport 11 March 2017
The car rental centre is separate from the airport so only rental traffic to cope with also a dedicated area for satnav GPS sync on the way out of the complex. Car rental centre away from the airport terminal meaning that luggage has to be loaded and unloaded from the shuttle bus.
George San Diego Airport 16 October 2016
That was the smoothest rental, very streamlined with no hassle and returning the car was even simpler. Could have given better direction to where to go to check out the car since there are multiple rental companies with their own check out booths.
