After a rescheduled flight, I didn’t know if I’d be able to get a car for the solar eclipse, even though I’d booked months before. But they got everything squared away, sending us off in a Dodge Charger. 😎Reviewed 13 Apr 2024

The customer service was great at both my pick up and drop off location but the car could have been cleaned better before giving it to a customer.Reviewed 5 Jan 2024

I was unable to get the vehicle that I prepaid for. Reportedly they had my first name as my last name and were unable to change the reservation and unable to cancel because I had reserved online. I ended up having to get a LyftReviewed 24 Nov 2023
