Virtually everything you need to get on the road

• Choose your vehicle from virtually anywhere with Virtual Aisle℠ (available at select locations). Upon arrival, use the app to choose a specific vehicle (with details like mileage and features) and we’ll hold it for 15 minutes so you can show your Virtual Pass, get the keys and go.

I like the app....1 huge improvement needed

Need to be able to save favorite locations. Also would be great to “repeat” frequent rentals and just change the date.

Great when it works

I have been using this app for years now and can tell you on average it works about 30% of the times I go to book a new reservation. Therefore, I always end up going to my browser and booking from their website. It’s extremely annoying because when the app is working, it is very convenient and user friendly. Extremely frustrating!

Frustrated Many Times Over

Every time I log in there ate different screens that don’t always show my banked Free days. One time it says I’m Executive then the next reservations puts me back to Emerald. Your CS has made so many errors on my rentals lately...the last person felt so bad she “gave” me back couple of Free days that another CS rep took from me. I’ve literally spent so much time wasted because I get different info every time I call.
