Tamara was a pleasure to work with. She treated the car with great care and even had the car washed prior to her return. I hope to rent to Tamara in the future and I would highly recommend her to other renters.
If I end up keeping this car - I would definitely rent it out to Tamara again. Communicating with Tamara was very easy as we texted back and forth prior to her pick up and drop off time. Tamara was flexible both times, in order to accommodate our schedules. She returned the car clean and with a full tank of gas.
Beware: this renter may be dishonest with you. She caused some extreme wear and tear on my vehicle without my permission. She asked to rent my car for a short period and shortly afterward asked to extend the rental for three weeks. When I told her I was very uneasy about putting the amount of miles allotted by RelayRides during that period, she assured me she would not drive that much, and just needed a car while hers was being repaired. Specifically, I asked her if she needed to drive 1,500 miles on my car and she said, "Lol, nope! Havent put a 100 at this point ;)"
When she returned the car, I found she drove over 1,100 miles. I am incredibly disappointed and cannot rent my car out for some time in order to keep down the wear and tear on my vehicle.
RelayRides as a community is only as strong as its members. We all have to be able to trust each other for this to work. I am very disappointed.
I enjoyed meeting Tamara, who was very courteous and who took great care of the Mazda I list on RelayRides. I look forward to seeing her again when she needs a car, and hope she felt I was equally considerate of her.
