Valerie Durban Downtown 28 October 2017
service was good but unfortunately the location was not good for a single lady They at first did not want to hire the car out due to my age which was declared on the booking.
Juli Durban Airport 28 October 2017
The staff member who dealt with us was courteous, efficient and willing to please - really nice gentleman There was nothing I did not like, but do find that the deposit is quite hefty

The car did serve the purpose in terms of space The time taken to verify the token was not conducive
Mehboob Durban Airport 27 September 2017
Process is quite convenient and easy to use , although would prefer selecton of size of collidion waiver when booking. Collection process also fine. We got a car with much smaller boot than selected so luggage had to be squashed.
Paulo Durban Airport 27 September 2017

Moritz Durban Airport 26 September 2017
I liked the helpfulness of the staff. I got stuck with a faulty battery out side of town on Sunday afternoon. Within 45 minutes of me calling the call centre I had a replacement car and was ready to go. I was kept up to date with the progress, I was called back, I was sorted out very quickly and effortlessly. What a pleasure to be valued!
