IstvánNovember 15, 2017
Ihave got a perfect service from a nice stuff. The Ford Fiesta even it has run over 35.000 kms funcionaly was allways on the top.Inside the car was clean and wise.
NicholasOctober 28, 2017
The car was compact and very practical for some of the narrow roads on Gozo and Malta. It fitted easily into parking spaces that drivers of larger vehicles had to leave vacant. Good first gear for those steep hills too. The speed with which a breakdown truck attended and the mechanic sorted out the problem. His attitude and friendlinesss were good.
The battery expired but this is not a criticism; the car had done 25k km on short runs. You could not have predicted this failure. We chose your company for its value and did not expect to drive a new car.

It was a good experience without pushy upsell.
September 25, 2017
good reception, not trying to fool you on extra's. very reassuring behaviour (see also next box)
Airco did not work well with extreme outside temperatures. once I drove there was the whole time an indication to 'stop'. When I went back I was reassured by Airbudget that this must be a computer problem and that I should not worry.

The chaps in the car park (both dropping off and picking up) were especially friendly.

Helpful staff
Not too keen on a small automatic car
EmanuelMay 31, 2017
The car was comfortable,clean and upgrade was bonus thank you
May 18, 2017
Helpful staff. Had a problem with non-locking door and they replaced the car even offered an upgrade.
Confusing system for refilling out of hours meant returning the car not full.

The fuel wasn't full when we got the car.
RuthMay 10, 2017
Excellent service, the man who handed over the keys was lovely and very helpful.

Simplicity of the renting process.
Car model inferior to the car model advertised.
April 13, 2017
Quick, efficient pickup, no 'hard sell' for extras
I returned the car at 7:00 pm and the drop off procedure wasn't as clear as it could be (but it was very quick and simple once you'd worked it out)
StevenMarch 29, 2017
Had a choice of 2 free upgrades. The bodywork was dented scratched all around the car but that just meant that there was no hassle picking up and dropping off!
Maltese roads and Maltese drivers!
March 26, 2017

OK generally
faulty wiper. Driving in Malta is generally a stressful business..
EDWARDFebruary 6, 2017
no wiper on the back window
January 6, 2017
Very bad smell of cigarette smoke
December 31, 2016
Good, quick service
All the damage was not logged so we had to go round it in the dark and add it onto the paperwork
BrianDecember 20, 2016
Everything, from start to finish the whole process was easy and straight forward.
It took me a while to find the location of the car once I had my key, but this is more to do with my lack of direction than anything else.
October 19, 2016
easy without no problems
car was very dirty and stinking. As well the left mirror (on the passanger side door) was completly broken. The car had a lot of demages, it was pretty embarancing to drive around with it.
AndrewOctober 9, 2016
Helpfulness of the charming desk clerk in Malta.
August 31, 2016
Excellent service from the administration and from the staff handing the car over to us. Had a new Hyundai really impressed.
July 26, 2016
Very quick time to pick up the car
Bad condition of the car
July 6, 2016
Easy drop off. Relaxed. No pressure.
there was nobody at the budget desk when I arrived and there was no sign to go to the Avis desk (which is where the person was).
June 19, 2016
easy collecting vehicle via the Budget desk
the damage on the vehicle was a lot worse than what we were informed, at the collection desk, also, we were told it had half a tank of fuel, when collecting vehicle, we find it has only a quarter of a tank
June 18, 2016
very straight forward but then we know where we are going to collect cars at Malta Airport.
Car had so many knocks and scratches it was difficult to list and note them all.
May 30, 2016
The ease of pick up and the instructions provided. The fact that the car was diesel and came with three quarters of a tank and the instruction was to bring it back empty was great. Because Malta is so small and despite covering the whole island on several occasions, we still managed to take the car back with a quarter of a tank of fuel.
The boot was really small and disappointing and not large enough for even 2 x small cases.
RussellMay 1, 2016
It was clean and it started
An oldish scoda fairly battered under powered or knackered definitely the nattiest hire car anywhere we went. We looked like locals that's for sure
MichelApril 9, 2016
new car in excellent condition
March 29, 2016
The car had obviously not been inspected before re- rental in that the window washer reservoir was empty and the front nearside tyre had a large gash on the tread extending down to the steel wire re- inforcement. This was immediately reported but with no offer to remedy.
AllanMarch 14, 2016
Good car.
March 14, 2016
Helpful man at the desk especially as the plane was very late 1 AM] and well past the mans finishing time. He even stopped on his way home as we were loading our suitcases and asked if everything was OK.
The condition of the car was poor with lots of dents and scrapes, poor suspension [Maltese roads dont help] and a feeling of a worn out tired, should have been replaced sooner.
