Every employee at your Baltimore-Washington airport on Wednesday morning, September 23.was helpful but especially a lady in "lost and found." I left a suit jacket (claim # 930780) When I contacted "lost and found" I talked to a lady there (a real person not a recording) who was very, very helpful. My situation was complicated because I left it in one of your cars at the airport when I decided to change to another car. I did not know how to identify the car (where my jacket was) except to say it was a "white, midsize, Honda. Immediately getting the coat back to me was complicated because I was in Washington, DC to attend the Joint Session of the Congress and see and hear Pope Francis speak on Thursday morning. It was within 3-4 hours of making my claim that I was contacted on Wednesday. It took more than one phone call from her, but when she found the jacked, she called me for forwarding instructions. (I had also filled out a claim form on your website.) I would like to give you her name but I have misplaced it. Nevertheless, she is fantastic! She had gotten National a life-long customer.

I can proudly say I only rent car from Alamo since I came to this country 1995. The only time I went to Enterprise was because insurance company sent me there. Beside that I tried AVIS just because now Enterprise owns Alamo and it might mess up Alamo's culture. I like the Alamo culture. You can reserve online and go to the counter at the airport and finish everything on the touch screen computer and pick your car. Once you get used to it, it only takes few minutes to pick up your car and leave. The only concern I have is that now Alamo is owned by Enterprise. The Enterprise people are buggers. For example they try to force you to buy their insurance. I think because they get commission out of it they try to scare the customer. Alamo, they explain it once if you decline, they don't bug you again. Enterprise, it is OK to own Alamo but leave Alamo's way of doing business as it is. Otherwise, my next best choice is AVIS.
Checkout @ BWI was quick, entered my reservation number, saw I was an Emrald Club member, and told me to pick anything from the EC area. Saw many new mid-low tier Dodges and Chevrolets, and felt despair. Then I saw a Ford Fusion completely covered in over 1/2" of ice (windows/paint/wheels), and was relieved. Once the car thawed, it was a very nice car, rode well, had a sunroof (impractical in the snow/ice, but i still used it twice), leather, seat warmers, Sat radio. Completely happy with the rental. Even the ice coverage to begin with, if the Fusion had been cleaned off, I seriously doubt it would have been available. As others have stated, the vehicles looked turned over quickly, not really cleaned inside but was adequate. And some wax on the outside would have probably prevented ice from sticking so securely. I would rent this vehicle again.
