The vehicle is not older than 2 years, yet the car was badly scratched. The handbrake did not work, and I had to park uphill.

Clive Cape Town Airport 26 September 2017
Ability to res pond to a difficultd situation I didnt have a Credit Card so they were able to compimise and I paid extra deposit to secure the Car Not enough awareness and it is only in the small print is made on the internet that non credit cards like my Captec Debit card which is also a master card are not allowed. I belive non credit embossed credit card should be allowed

Fuel economy Car had a lot of scratches and small dent.
Johann Cape Town Airport 11 September 2017
I've always had the best experience with your company. The car made it not so nice this time round. Air conditioning on the Etios, did not work at all. Something like a plastic cover was loose at the right front wheel and the noise it made was very frustrating. First time I had such bad luck.
