extra hidden fees and vehicle with some minor issu
Pros: The staff at the counter was excellent, very helpful and friendly. The pickup process was quick and easy.
Cons: The car had some issues. It was unclean, with candy wrappers in the back seat and a chocolate stain on the upholstery. The windshield washer didn't work which was a problem due to all the dirt roads in this part of the country. There were also hidden fees everywhere for extra kilometers drive (limit is 200k per day, are you kidding me!!??!?) and a big extra fee to "prepare a document" to allow entry into chile (they just printed a customs form).
Pros: Really nice staff to work with.
Cons: The car was a VW UP! and there was no obvious mechanism for locking it. This should be clarified on day of rental.
Pros: Great service and vehicle.
Pros: Friendly and professional customer service.
Cons: Too expensive for the size of the car.
Pros: Pick up dropp off was ok!
Cons: I got a car with totally smooth front tire! And the representative let me change it my self!!!!!!! I rented cars all over the world but never seen something like that!!!

TTHANKS GOD IT DIDNT BLOW UP ON OURS WAY BACK!!!
