Freindly staff helpful and courteous

We were earlier than expected, but the staff allowed us to check in and leave with the car. We had no problems, there was nothing we didn't like.
Anonymous Cairns Airport 15 March 2017
Staff at Cairns airport were very helpful in verifying a point in the amount of excess applied to hire. A shade over the hire car collection area would have been appreciated on the day of pick up. It was an extremely hot day and the vehicle in full sun. The interior was scalding hot.

Staff at the check in desk and the pick up desk were extremely polite and helpful. Also, at the dropoff desk in the car park. Could not have asked for better assistance and courtesy. There were no negatives at all!

Great vehicle easy to drive comfortable seats except rear seats very cramped for adults limited seating when you have two child seats in car. Plenty of power readonably evonomical for size of vehicle Car is very large hard to park in confined spaces with constant threat of someone scratching or damaging it

The car rental desk was easy to find, the attendant processed the paperwork quickly and everything was ready at the car pick up point. The vehicle was nice to drive.
Anonymous Cairns Airport 28 December 2016
It was all good - ease of booking, pick up and drop off. Car was immaculate and air con efficient (we were in Nth Qld!) Shame that for the sake of an extra couple of hours you have to pay another whole day's rental.
