    The car return location at ZQN was closed due to lack of staff. They asked us to return the car in Hertz counter. We always missed our flight because of this.

    On collecting the car the counter staff advised that booking directly with Ace was easier than booking with Easyrent. The full insurance would be straight forward and the details simpler.
