    I used them once for my last year trip. My experience was hassle free. My only negative was the long wait to check in due to their small counter space at the airport rental facility. It was about a 20min wait for only being behind about 4 other renters. (Granted it seemed to be the customers asking a LOT of questions.) But other than that it was hassle free, from the car I got to the price matching the estimate. Everything went as planned.

    They may not have as many bells and whistles as the big guys, but they rent out cars all the same. And because they are very competitive with Advantage and Payless, they have some of the best rates.

    And FWIW, I've chosen them for this year's trip too. I can't complain with $8/day.

    Regarding the 20 minute wait... I saw a similar thing at Advantage the 2 times I rented from them, though the wait was longer. It was like being at Taco Bell. There were like 15 people (4 or 5 groups) and when each one got up to the front, they'd say, "yeah... what kinda cars you got?" Wha??? You don't even have a reservation? Are you kidding me???

    When our company contracted with National, I was soooo happy... we do pay more, but I'm often driving a vehicle with less than a couple thousand miles on it and I sail right past the counter up to the aisle... get in a vehicle and go.

    We used them last Nov. No complaints. I was going to use them in Feb, but I got an unbelievable rate through Alamo and switched. But I wouldn't hesitate one second to use them again.

    Used EZ for my trip in Feb, was the only one in line, no insurance hard sells, free upgrade to full size and out of the rental terminal in less than 15 minutes. I'd recommend them, and use them again.

    I first used EZ when I was getting ready to rent from Advantage that had a ridiculously long line. I walked over to EZ that had almost no line and they beat the price that I had on the Advantage reservation. Haven't used any other agency since. I do check others, but EZ has always had the best rates. Nice cars, pleasant service.

    I didn't use EZ but on my last trip I noticed at least a half hour line there at the desk while there was no significant line at any of the other rental companies desks.

    Just checked them out, and with me being from Canada and my credit card does not cover insurance, I always get the insurance to avoid any problems that might arise.

    EZ rental and most of the others charge 20+ per day, i use CARRENTALS.COM and go through Fox and its 11 bucks a day for insurance which is a way better deal IF you get the insurance. I always think better safe then sorry for $35.97 for Thursday 10 am to Sunday 10 am.
