There was no representative in the car pick up area or drop off area to resolve any queries. Other car companies had people facilitating handover and return of cars. The condition of the car at pick up was not as declared on the paperwork and I had to find a budget rep. to note additional damage on the car.

The car was roomy and useful for my purposes and air conditioning worked well. Fuel consumption was higher than expected. I couldn't find how to turn the air conditioning off except by stopping the fan. Car was a little bit bigger than I would have liked.

Dropping off the car was an easy process. The waiting time to pick up the car. Highly ridiculous to wait for nearly an hour (My wife is 8 months pregnant). The process should be simplified since everything has already been done online!

Quick and easy pick up. I got exactly the car I wanted, it was in a perfect condition. The rental desc at Dublin Airport is definitely understaffed, so it was somewhat chaotic to bring it back. It is also quite expensive to drop the car at different Location.
