Quaide was awesome! We had to change our pick-up time multiple times due to a flight delay and also had to change our drop off time. Quaide accommodated accordingly. The vehicle was very comfortable to drive, clean, and full of fuel. It has all the bells and whistles you would want driving in an unknown city. Blind spot detection and an excellent navigation system. I will definitely be renting from him when I am back in San Diego.
