Anonymous Cape Town Airport 05 May 2017
Staff were friendly, car performed well and return was hassle free Car was previously used by a smoker and stale smell was evident, model of car bonnet has design fault which means it moves when you drive and appears open.
Manish Cape Town Downtown 27 April 2017
It was very easy renting a car - as I did it for 1st time. Yet to get their final bill (if they charge anything hidden) - so hard to say. Hoping for no-surprise.
