Xin C.
Rented a car at this location for 4 days last October. The check out and return were swift and the services were commendable. There were some small scratches on the car when taken out. Please take time and document those imperfections before driving off the rental car lot. When returning the car, make sure with the rental staff that you are not responsible for those. For American drivers, no need to get a international driver’s license. Your American driver’s license is just fine.
