Hyundai Accent GLS 4d
May 15, 2018

Pros: Easy pickup - from airport at 9.30 pm, good efficient service at the desk. easy drop off too, key placed in box at desk on return.

Cons: As you can see from the scores I've given I am happy overall. I was offered an upgrade because I was renting the car for 8 days when i spoke to the person at the desk. I've had upgrades F.O.C when it's been offered by other car rental companies, so initially i thought 'that's great' but then he said it would be another $10 per day. I don't like 'up selling' in this way. he wasn't persistent about it but don't tell the customer you're upgrading them and then ask for another $80 for the privilege!
