Edward Washington DC Dulles Airport 27 September 2016
Helpful staff, both on collection and return Poor identification of the return location. Signage is misplaced in relation to the entry.
Anonymous Washington DC Dulles Airport 31 August 2016
Car condition and trustworthiness of the staff (Employee who hands over the car and the one at the gate that checks for damages) was very good. the cost of the various car rental insurances are too high.

jeremy Washington DC Dulles Airport 25 May 2015
Friendly efficient staff Had to upgrade as the car I wanted / booked, was not available. We decided to upgrade to get a better car.
Anonymous Washington DC Downtown 20 April 2015
Speed Service There was disput on damages which from my opinion were already before I get car
Jason Reagan National Airport 21 November 2014
The type of vehicle made available to us instead of the type we booked (for no additional charge). The no-hassle drop off (very different to Europe - where I now expect dubious claims of damage against me by car rental firms). An unexpected fee - for dropping the car off at LAX. Also some confusion upon collecting the vehicle - the type of vehicle I had selected was present at the depot but I was told it had been booked to someone else (in hindsight, I think it was my vehicle but the National staff erroneously thought it was booked to someone else).
Anonymous Washington DC Downtown 16 September 2014
Cleanest of car, No clear sign where to return car, should be visible in advance on the road approaching Union Station, not so many cars available on site for convenient choice.
