"Great service By luck I came across Rentalo and have been both shocked and amazed with the service. I have all these wonderful options for my sisters bachelorette party in New Orleans now that I am so happy. It would have taken me at least a week to do the same work that was done for me in less than 12 hours. For me, someone who has to see ALL of the options available to her, Rentalo has really saved the day. Thank you."Laura Curry
