The car was fine and the service was very good.
The petrol tank was on empty and we needed to get petrol before we could start our journey- service station was close to the airport but it was late and we didn't know the area so it would have been good if we didn't need to stop for petrol.

The car only had a quarter tank of fuel when I collected it. This is very annoying as it necessitated filling up immediately after collecting the car. Have never seen this before with reputable car hire companies.

Car condition was ok. No issues with car performance during stay.
Fuel was empty even though rental agreement was supposed to be full to full. So newcomers as we were to Mauritius had to go look for a nearby filling station. Not very nice. Also GPS rented did not have updated maps for over a year. A good recipe for tourists to get lost.

Vehicle condition was on the poor side

The right headlight was damaged (i.e. patched-up hole in light cover). Also, the right screen wiper was worn and not working properly, to the extend that it made driving in the rain difficult.

they forgot to give us the ticket to leave car park - so we had to make u -turn all the way back to the booking office - lost about 20 minutes - that we could have saved not driving in the dark

this car needed a big maintenance, scratches all over (notified) lights inside the car not working, full level very low, lucky just enough to arrive at our hotel and that at night with cyclone following us...

We have to say we had a value for money looking at the services overall.
Fuel policy should have been "Full tank when picking up car and Full tank when dropping it off. However, it was not a case and we have to make a complaint about it as it was not easy to make it fair.

Very easy , booked and paid online.helpful staff.

The car squealed loudly for about five minutes after you started it. Embarrassing for us. Obvious noise should have prevented the company from letting the car out as a rental for clientele.

I would like to thank FIRST CAR RENTAL for their professionalism, commitment, timely and outstanding customer service. I am extremely pleased with the excellent condition of the car accompanied with a personalized water bottle. Great service makes customers feel that you care about developing a long-term relationship. I highly recommend you.

Staff was very helpful.
because there is only one person working at the desk with details, if someone is in front of you it takes a little time. My sense is was this way for all car rentals at this airport.
DavidApril 14, 2016
Efficient/friendly pick up & drop off.
Expensive location. Supplied with no fuel on pick-up.

Staff were friendly and the car was comfortable. We were given a Ford Focus.
Car had not been washed and only a quarter tank of petrol, although these were minor considering we were given an upgrade.

Good value for money
Lights didn't work properly

Friendly. helpful and flexible
November 28, 2015
unimg the app I was only made aware that I could pickup the car at a hotel a few miles away but when I picked up the car I was told that I could have had it delivered to my hotel and picked up from. The rep was very helpful but would have been better to know this in advance. Regards

I excpected a manual gearshift and got automatic. No problem except the gearbox was either slipping(losing power up hill) or the gear change sensor is faulty because at certain speeds it would shift several times between 2nd and 3rd. also when I dropped the cat off there was no staff to receive the vehicle so I had to leave the keys at the desk

I liked that we got a bigger car (sedan). I20 might have been a bit of a squeeze with 4 people and luggage.
Car had lots of scratches and dings, which is always worrying when you return. Tank was empty, so had to immediatel try to find petrol station. One tyre was smooth. We waited for over 20minutes for somebody to get to counter. Whole car vibtated when braking from higher speeds

The staff we nice, friendly and helpful. The little car worked well. The interior was fine, comfortable enough. The GPS worked. The radio worked fine. It was functional and served the purpose adequately.
The car was pretty scuffed and scratched on the outside. The windscreen wipes were partly effective, rather worn; in a big downpour (which happens in Mauritius) it could be a problem with ineffective wipers. The tires had seen better days. The GPS could have been more up-to-date; many of the roads were unnamed and hotels and shopping areas in the system.

Great staff they made it all very easy. Thanks.
HendrikAugust 10, 2015
Fast and no nonsense approach
Nothing worth mentioning
April 23, 2015
Good contact with agency, helpful staff, overall good experience
Car condition was quite poor. 80K km on the meter, weak engine etc.
FrancescoJanuary 25, 2015
the ease of booking and get the car
It was not very cheap, but for sure less than the competitors
January 18, 2015
Counter staff member (Roy) was very welcoming and helpful throughout. Was able to make minor adjustment on telephone without difficulty.

collection from hotel
vehicle not being dropped off at hotel without a charged
davidMarch 15, 2014
car was waiting very close by.
1. no windshield washer fluid, tank leaked when I filled it. This is not a safe condition. 2. Gas tank was almost empty, however they accepted to have it returned in the same condition. i would prefer to have a full tank of gas and return it full.
March 2, 2014
We got a late upgrade after booking which ended up very lucky as we took the car up Ferney and other protected areas
