The same car we ordered. We arrived very late and they needed to clean a car especially for us. It was really easy to find the budget counter. Return was very easy.

The front desk people were incredibly helpful, kind, warm, engaging and friendly. The car was exactly what we had booked and was in good condition. Pick up and drop off were a breeze. Thank you!

This company has some bad reviews so we were a bit nervous but everything went very well. Great car exactly as described and really very minimal complaints. It does take a while to get the car as you have to take a shuttle bus (same for all car hire companies) and then the paperwork took a while. But I think this is fairly standard. Returning the car is very quick.

The car condition was okay The car rerurn was easy The cost of the insurence was very high. I think that you should be involved at this part as the insurence cost is higher than the renting and you do not know what to expect and how to refer to it
