I hired a car here twice for two weeks. Every time: quick check-in, very friendly personel, quick car return, no weird hassles with damage or something. I don't understand the 3.1 rating here, very happy with them :) And it's obvious with ANY car company to not buy anything extra at the counter, use the full fuel on start and return thing, buy your own insurance, check for dents yourself at the start, make photos of it, compare it with their damage thingy, that's basic car hire knowledge, ofcourse they have to run a business model out of that, but they don't force you or anything.
