Only negative comment was the speed that the representative explained the dropping off system. He was very nice and welcoming but I think he was in a hurry. We were left a little confused about the drop off system but did not have any problems in the end finding how and where to leave the car. Very easy and uncomplicated way of hiring a car. Thanks
