I got to budget car rental of mct airport in oman at half to 6 am, and the staff refused my request of pick-up at that time because my reservation at 8 am. i told him i could pay extra-hourly rental fee for the stupid schedule time, but he asked me to pay another full one day fee for these 2 hours. i have never met such a service of car rental. my god, it is incredible.
