Budget car rental
The staff are very friendly and accommodating and easy to deal with. The car was ok however needed a good detail internally. the business is quite a distance from the airport and the opening times a free return to the airport are different so this is misleading. the return to the airport of 4pm for the last shuttle bus is too early.
Customer service was good.
Pickup at the airport was way too long because the garage you go to is MILES away from the MLB airport.
I ordered the car thinking it was a standard rental car, not someones personal car a-la AirBnB style. The car was fine, though. I also received an email alert a few days out that I may not be able to get a car, then I got a confirmation not long after, thankfully. It doesn't really instill me with much confidence. I'll probably avoid next time as pricing is comparable to standard rentals.
Car was good. Some improvements suggested with service
The VW Golf was good at base rate. After adding on insurance it became similar to other car rentals. The options for tolls was very frustrating. Can't just get the tolls charged to you like a normal car rental. Have to purchase a package or risk paying cost of tolls plus $38 admin fee. This was a problem for me when I accidentally went through a toll because I missed an exit. The Carhood office closed at 5pm which was a challenge for me, I couldn't get there in time. So I had to get a taxi to the airport from the Carhood depot. Overall the busi...nesss model is good but I found for the cost and inconvenience it may be better to get a car via normal car rental place. Have to pay a deposit also which gets refunded. Took a long time to get the paperwork done at the office and there were a few people to get though.

It was ok
Need better face to face customer service. 1 head light was out and I was told to fix it myself because they didn’t have the time which I did not have the time to do hence why I hired a car in the first place. Upon returning the car the depot was not even made aware of me contacting them to report the faulty headlight.
The car was good, but I was required to make a huge deposit,
Everything went good. They were respectful, all the payments were successfully processed, vehicle good, only 2 things that would discourage me for next time: 4k on bond (that is too much) and no lift back.
