Erwin Cape Town Airport 20 November 2017
clean car, efficient handling & service car was too low, front deflrctors under the motor touched ground on 99% of speed bomps or gravel roads - unpleasant

Car was clean. We expected a better quality from Mercedes.
Derek Cape Town Airport 16 October 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.
Nigel Cape Town Airport 04 October 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.

Anonymous Cape Town Airport 21 September 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.
