      Loved the Atlas VW. Cruise control was the best thing, the sensor slows the car when another vehicle in front, at the distance you set, and gets back to your set speed on its own. This really helped our long 40 hr trip. The car is not to big, not too small and easy to manage on the freeway and parking. This is a good car for everyday use.

      The counter staff was professional and helpful. I had a little trouble hearing him because of the mask. With one person ahead of me at the counter, it took about 15 minutes for me to get to the counter. Between Hertz, Thrifty and I think it was Dollar, it would be nice to have a floater to handle any counter that needs the extra help.

      The beginning was a disaster. Long lines. Slow moving. I wasn't in the car I had reserved. General chaos. The people at the desk were polite, but they were overwhelmed. It ended well because the manager put me in a different car at a reduced price.

      I have been charged twice with no explanation why or contact from thrifty. The agreement on pick up and return after the car was checked said $52. We got charged that. Then several days later they have made a further $62 charge which was not agreed and I have not been invoiced for. Not happy in the slightest.

      Signposting of vehicle pick up/drop off when coming from terminal an issue. Okay when first leaving terminal then cannot see where to go as no signposting. Also not sure where to go to drop off as no signposting in car park. Drop off point didn't have Alamo written on it - I had to ask.

      Unfortunately, Advantage closed at this location the previous month, but Enterprise took over the contracts. After I was able to locate where my contract was being honored, everything went very smoothly. In fact, since there were no compact cars available, I was upgraded to a very nice full size car! Overall, a very pleasant experience!
