Front staff
A little bit beat up car that had dents and scrapes outside but also not fully clean inside
ANDREWApril 23, 2018
The car condition was good and it was the make and model we preselected.
More flexibility can be shown as we wanted to return the car early but was told there would be no refund as the car had already been paid for

cleanliness of vehicle

Price was excellent. Vehicle was clean, reliable and fit for purpose.

Good car , ease of drop off / proximity to terminal
Handy Info about parking in Melbourne could have been included. Was not sure how to interpret the parking signs and limits.

convenience of being close to Airport. Last time we hired a car that was off site venue, had to allow a lot of time to return it .
the car wasn't available, even though it was booked weeks prior. I guess it was just Easter Madness, but I was really disappointed. We had arranged appointments, but as we had to wait 90 minutes, had to put them off. The sort of thing I'd expect in Brisbane, not Melbourne!!
MichaelApril 3, 2018
Easy process Exact car (unusual for hire cars)
Cost of one way hire international airport to international airport
April 3, 2018
Good size for family
The car smelt like previous renters had smoked in it, and trying to be disguised through dedorisor - which didn't entirely hide the smell. Bad on day one - better by the second day.
BrendanApril 3, 2018

Friendly and helpful staff
Cost for one way hired is a bit too high

Ease of pick up and drop off
All good
March 25, 2018
The car itself was fantastic - I really appreciated how smooth it was to drive, and how fuel efficient it was. It made my driving experience in a city I'm unfamiliar with much less stressful than it would otherwise have been.
I couldn't find the petrol station at the airport based on the directions I was given, so I had to pay the extra charge on fuel :-(
March 23, 2018
Booking was a super easy. The guy behind the counter was very friendly and helpful
March 21, 2018
too long to pick up car. only 2 staff on duty. lots of people waiting.
March 21, 2018
Great service, but will next time ask to confirm we get the Kluger
The Mitsubishi, even though brand new, was not the car I was happy with, due to the fact it was very high and very uncomfortable in the back seats
DavidMarch 20, 2018
very hard to find the entrance to the rental car drop off point

Damage not detected before pickup
March 12, 2018
Helpful staff
Found it hard to locate the return rental car section- firstly ended up in the car park due to poor signage..... then had to go around to relocate the rental car section. It could be made a lot easier with better signage si that it is made more user friendly
GrantMarch 12, 2018
The staff and the quality of the car where great. We ordered a sedan and upgraded to a wagon which was most appreciated.
RobynMarch 10, 2018
