We were helped very quickly. Ability to choose our car at the pick-up zone.
The only qualm was the 30 day max rental period shown on the agreement in spite of the fact that we rented for 63 days. Apparently the company's systems automatically roll the rental over if it goes for more than 30 days, but I think it probably would be a problem if we would be stopped by an officer of the law. Fortunately this did not happen.

The drop off was very time efficient. The car was beautiful and easy to use.
The fee for extra drivers and the fee for 'underaged' drivers. Especially the last one because I personally think that 22 year can not be considered underaged anymore.

The car was new and in perfect conditions and maintenance.
The first option that National offers was a different car. When I insist they give me the one I reserved, but there were a kind of vegetal sabia on the front window that was impossible to clean. I used three different products trying to clean it and nothing. My accompaniment never could see the views.

Easy to get car in short time
Didn't get the car I wanted. Could have paid a lot less for a similar model to the one I got. Staff unhelpful on the whole. Cars all had dents and scratches, and exterior dirty. Would not recommend this to anyone. In hindsight would have paid less. Annoyed that I lost money.

very simple and relaxed to deal with.
finding the rental car desk at the airport was tough after a 10 hour flight.

Getting in the car was super quick, I just asked to choose the available car in the row and the data they need is just a driving license.
No upgrade at all :-)

The pick up
KeithAugust 28, 2016
I would use National again but was looking forward to the Jeep and got an awful Hyundai Santra. The worst auto gearbox you could imagine. It became a laughing point of the holiday!
The spare key was metal roped to the main key, you couldn`t seperate them! Apart from it banging on my leg for 10 days when in the ignition what If I was unfortunate enough to lose the key! The spare would be with it, just ridiculous really.

great car, good value, excellent service at drop off.
poor service at pick up. no support at all (which UK drivers need!).
MartijnAugust 21, 2016
Flexibility in finding an available car that more or less met my specification. Quick and no hassle.
Would have liked the car I specified (Jeep Grand Cherokee) better than what I got (Ford Explorer), probably. Also, I wasn't thrilled by the limitations I couldn't reset (max speed, sound); 80 Mph is too close to the speed limits in Texas.

I eventually got the car I ordered and it was in great condition.
At first, the car wasn't available and a 'similar' car was offered. The cars where not similar at all however (older, less attractive cars). After some complaining, they found the exact model we were looking for after all.

The GPS was not satelite-navigation but depending on connection to mobile phone systems. As I was driving to a lot of areas with no mobile phone coverage I even had to buy me a map to find my destination.
MichaelMay 19, 2016
Car was better than i expected
Car wasn't clean at pickup.
DominicMay 4, 2016
Considered my request for the exact car model Over the phone service was great
Please mark somewhere visibly what kind of fuel the car needs

Expensive upgrade at SFO. Dodge Challenger not as polished or fun to drive as a Mustang or Camaro.

We came very late due to flight delayed, but nothing seemed to be the problem at all. We got our car in no more than 5 mins!
