The female member of staff at the Hertz desk on Saturday 1st July was excellent, friendly and reassuring as I was from Northern Ireland and the Swansea data base does not include NI driving licences.

The ease of picking up and dropping off.
MichaelJune 19, 2017
Great service.
DEREKJune 13, 2017
Great car, helpful staff.
June 11, 2017
The fact that you are given keys to an expensive item yet they take no time in showing you the controls of the car or what to do in case of a breakdown. Cars are the same but different!!
June 6, 2017
Excellent service
KevinJune 5, 2017
Full featured car with built in satnav. Very easy to book and collect the car.

PaulineMay 14, 2017
Lovely staff really helpful
Maybe I was lucky but this time 2st experience? Nothing
May 2, 2017
Enthusiasm for the service Enthusiasm for the (upgraded) car Helpfulness over local area and how to reach bridge Brilliant staff, very pleasant and interested, great communicators
Could not find the office. If you don't know Newcastle, its quite difficult to get to the office because of the one-way system, no traffic areas. Maybe a map from the bridge, or out of the area. I know most people will have a sat nav; however I would have found it helpful. thanks

Close to terminal.
Tried to sell insurance again.
PeterApril 16, 2017
No manual for the car. As I am not used to electronic brake or push button starting, I was uncomfortable to start with. Difficult to understand buttons and their functions. Petrol cap release button is well hidden, so difficult to find the first time. I understand that manuals get stolen, but it would have been possible to have some explanations

Brilliant staff and service , thank you
March 24, 2017

Facility was walking distance from station. Quick pick up
Location of office could be nearer the station and is in a secondary isolated area
November 9, 2016
Everything was very straightforward
October 14, 2016

Limited milage
September 1, 2016
Firefly not identified at airport eventually after asking at several place it turned out to be Hertz. Plane delayed and staff very unwelcome lots of extra charges and deposits requested
August 29, 2016
There was no sign for Firefly Car Hire, we had to ask at another desk. We located it at the Hertz desk but there was no sign advertising Firefly.
August 16, 2016
I could not find a manual and therefore could not find the lights - maybe they were automatic
AndrewAugust 7, 2016
Almost new car which was just right for what we required and very reasonably priced. Friendly staff.
Newcastle Airport has confusing signs for car rental pointing you to the pick up location instead of the service desk. This meant we walked all the way to the pick up, then had to go back to the service desk and then back to the pick up once more. This is not Firefly's fault, however!
MargaretJuly 16, 2016
Friendly service and excellent condition of car
Nothing except that it was a short walk to depot and if weather had been poor I might not have been so happy
CristianJune 20, 2016
I was offered the extra insurance and I declined. Normally the sales staff overly pressurize you into buying it because I assume there is a commission. Here the staff were friendly and understood good customer service. - Thank you Firefly/Hertz.
Firefly is another name for Hertz, but the Hertz desk doesn't say this anywhere, you just have to know. That is the only bad thing to say, otherwise excellent experience and would use again.
June 3, 2016
Helpful staff both at pick up and drop off. Fantastic brand new car.
March 14, 2016
The upgrade because someone had taken the car booked
Problems waiting to pick up car , difficulty with fuel cap
DouglasMarch 11, 2016
The price and friendliness of the staff.
January 4, 2016
Fast counter service & friendly staff
I would not have known to go to the Herz counter unless I had already researched that as the counter isn't branded as Firefly. Other than this minor point the service was excellent.
July 4, 2015
friendly staff,no messing about
June 30, 2015
polite staff. Car functions explained by staff, clean car full of petrol.
couldnt locate desk as no signage up and had to ask several counters and airport staff. no customer information desk at newcastle airport either.
NeilJune 23, 2015
Ease of handover at end
Only one representative on the desk. Took nearly 30 minutes to deal with the one customer in front of me who had just flown in from New Zealand
JanetMay 18, 2015
Everything esp helpful staff
RoyApril 28, 2015
Collection was fast and hassle free by a very friendly member of staff , the car was an upgrade for no extra charge and on collection the car was spotless inside and out . The car (Renault kaptur)had a built in sat nav which proved very helpfull .the cost of hire was great value .overall I found my experience renting with firefly excellent
April 21, 2015
No instruction manual so I struggled with lights and wipers.
April 13, 2015
Excellent service well done
Firefly needs to have a small sign on the Hertz desk where they are located we had to ask other car hire agencies
