Peter Cairns Airport 23 July 2017
Friendly staff and ease of the whole transaction from booking through to drop off. would have liked someone to point out the scratches and slight dents in the car on pick up rather than relying on what was written on the receipt.

The car was a brand new Holden Trax, very practical and easy to drive car A rattle from the back of the car, seems to be the number plate, solved with a tissue packed under the lower edge of the plate
