    Anythings fine. They still provided the bigger car to us, more convenience to our trip because our luggages more than our expeceted. Just the counter staff's simply to explain the instruction, not really clear.

    Great experience from start to finish. Car was not as clean as a whistle though, we found a juice bottle (half filled), beer cap and a corn chip inside the car, other than that the whole experience was great.

    The only thing that is annoying is the rude front desk staff of thrifty. Being a frontline of a company, he should be courteous and accomodating.
