I first had an upgrade
After a day I needed to bring the car back
MartinNovember 29, 2017
I booked a Nissan Tiida and got a Polo Vivo. The Polo was a great car with a huge boot which took all three of our suitcases. Really a big plus and a much better car for us.

The car was fine and the service was very good.
The petrol tank was on empty and we needed to get petrol before we could start our journey- service station was close to the airport but it was late and we didn't know the area so it would have been good if we didn't need to stop for petrol.

Friendliness of staff
Vehicle booked was larger than the one given upon arrival. Larger vehicle delivered to us after 1st week after negotiations with booking company.

Welcome at Airport on departure was wonderful. Representative was very helpful to drop us off in front of airport-entrance. He is a very pleasant representative. Deserve a bonus!

couldn't find me first

All good
DerekOctober 16, 2017
We especially liked the VW Up!Model that we were given to drive.
A noise at the front right wheel was worrying but this disappeared after a few days. We did report it and assumed that it was a brake shoe wearing in. The hub did not get hot and the car did not pull to one side when breaking, so continued driving.

They gave me a Renault Duster which is not the same as a what I booked. It took two hours to get the vehicle

Ease with which car was changed
First car picked up had no functional radio
JulianOctober 6, 2017
Efficient pick up and drop off. Clean car easy to drive no problems
October 5, 2017
The car was still brand new and thus did not pose any technical problems. Colour of the car was just right for the occasion. Small engine size which meant less fuel consumption over longer distance.
The body size of the car against the Durban winds made driving at higher speeds a challenge at times.
NigelOctober 4, 2017
Speed of renting, standard of car and service
Arranged to drop car off in Rondebosch. Did so to find office complex secure and no manned office. After phoning I was finally informed by a visitor to the complex that a note was left at the rear requesting car to be secured at rear and key dropped through open office window. No check, no information, not very professional set up.
ElizabethOctober 4, 2017
Excellent value for money
October 4, 2017
The car only had a quarter tank of fuel when I collected it. This is very annoying as it necessitated filling up immediately after collecting the car. Have never seen this before with reputable car hire companies.

Your desk staff
The time it takes to refund the money block on my credit card
September 28, 2017
Nice clean and not expensive car. The model did surprise me. Was a bid skeptic in the beginning but the car stand it's ground. Thanks
September 21, 2017
The warm approach of the lady who handled the paperwork and the excellent gentleman who brought my car to the door and also received it back.
Nothing. It was an excellent experience.
September 20, 2017
The car
NiallSeptember 20, 2017
The car itself
booked an auto but originally was given a manual - Had to get the car changed which held up the process and was not a good start
RobertSeptember 18, 2017
Everything was so easy and just like you'd expect it to be.
September 15, 2017
It was fairly easy to collect and return the car even though my flight was delayed by two hours.
September 12, 2017
Unlimited KMs
GerhardSeptember 11, 2017
Counter person very helpful.
All good
IneifieSeptember 7, 2017
Car condition was ok. No issues with car performance during stay.
Fuel was empty even though rental agreement was supposed to be full to full. So newcomers as we were to Mauritius had to go look for a nearby filling station. Not very nice. Also GPS rented did not have updated maps for over a year. A good recipe for tourists to get lost.
SandileSeptember 7, 2017
Friendly service at the counter
Time it took to pick up the car

Ease of booking & pick-up of car
September 3, 2017
Nothing to report.
LaurieSeptember 3, 2017
It was very easy to collect the car from the car park and be on our way within half an hour of landing.
There were no clear parking spaces on returning the car.
KeniasSeptember 3, 2017

Efficiency of Staff
I was provided a Ford Eco which was a downgrade and the engine was very weak for the size of car
August 27, 2017
Very helpful and efficient staff and service. Will be back next time. Thank you
August 24, 2017
The person who assisted me, Nik, was extremely helpful, and should be considered an asset by the company. I cannot speak highly enough of him.
GerhardAugust 22, 2017
Good service, clean and fairly new car. Convenient drop-off point
Wanted a Nissan Quasqai and the gave me a Ford Eco Sport that I perceive to be much smaller than a Nissan.
ChritianAugust 21, 2017
The car was too small due to different model provided but company allowed us to swap to different car in same group to meet our needs.
The fact that the boot capacity is unpredictable when booking the car as it always says or similar and in our case similar was much smaller.
KarenAugust 20, 2017

August 17, 2017
