The car that was provided for us was too small. Think the question needs to be asked if there are 4 people how many bags there will be? We also weren't made aware that we could pre-book our internal flight seats with United Airlines

Travellers should be warned that nowadays many airports expect you to be able to operate the self activated screens for booking passes, and that a certain amount of activity needs to be performed by the traveller on websites. While this may be second nature to younger people it may be worrying to older travellers. I would like to add that your transfer people in Canada who took us to and from Niagara and Toronto were first class and great ambassadors for their role.
