Great service and convenience Car was not cleaned for handover. It was however not dirty, just not cleaned.

The staff that was used to do the inspection of the car wit us was too much in a hurry we did not manage to ask all we needed to ask. I think they need to improve on that.

The steering wheel was at an angle when driving straight.
Danny Cape Town Airport 10 November 2017
The pick-up took just too long, Drop of was fine and I would have appreciated an indication of how much fuel was used. I was just told it would be taken off my deposit which would be paid back in 4x working days.

The babysit available was in a terrible condition and dirty. Totally unacceptable...
Anonymous Cape Town Airport 04 November 2017
Overall the entire experience was very positive with no hitches at all. Returns at the Airport was a bit confusing as signage to Returns not up to scratch. Witnessed many people asking for directions to the Returns section.
