I left my sunglasses when I return the car and they call me and give it back. Awesome customer service. There’s nothing I don’t like and I will rent again for our next trip for sure.

Lovely spacious clean van. More than enough power for size, cheap to run. Weight of the sliding doors, particularly if you were parked on a hill, slope. You should look at automatic ones. And no handle on front to pull yourself in (passenger side). Frustrating for a shorter person.
