Ease of renting a vehicle
May 14, 2017
The Kerikeri staff were extremely helpful returning my own car keys that I left in Kerikeri in error.

Cleanliness of the car, quick pick up and drop off
It was not possible to get an invoice for the renting, including the whole cost.

Quick service. Location of desk and depot.
Garage was too dark to clearly see can to do an adequate pre-inspection check.
andrewApril 24, 2017
The young women who handled my booking were highly professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with. I wish I had more people in my life like them. Totally awesome.
Can't think of anything, but you could have a free coffee machine at the counter like my trade suppliers do.

AdamFebruary 27, 2017
When I picked the vehicle up, it appeared to have been "cleaned" very quickly. Dirt/bugs on bonnet and windscreen and inside, there was sand on the floors and seats. Not impressed with cleaning standard from a reputable business.
CathyFebruary 22, 2017
I was very surprised to get an upgrade to a very very nice car. We were driving from Wgtn to Akld and it was great as it had Sat navigation
Nothing really

Vehicle comfort.
Waited in the queue for over 1 hour to pick up the car.

Car provided was an automatic RAV4 instead of a Focus and was perfect for our use. All arrangements were very quickly presented and the Budget staff did not try to sell me additional insurance once I told them I had dealt with this privately

HuixiongJanuary 30, 2017
Family car, good lag space
lost of power, when driver uphill on 100KM road, speed drop down to 80! also, the information screen: unable to see when reverse car, unable to make it bright. It is bad expense for this new car
January 17, 2017
Speedy process
Wish I had a spare pen in the car so that I could have fill the form in.
January 17, 2017
GPS needs to be updated as some roads had been closed and had highways going through them which extended travelling time significantly.
January 16, 2017
Really liked the Rav4 - was easy to drive. Wasn't an issue bringing the voucher to the Budget desk.
Possibly could have been told the basic speed limits in New Zealand e.g. 50km/hr in towns 100km/hr in country areas as a rule. But I completely understand that is our responsibility as the driver so not a big deal.
LyntonDecember 23, 2016
The vehicle was in perfect condition and very easy to drive. I was very pleased that we could use two drivers as it meant we had a fresh driver on the return journey. Very comfortable and very suitable.
It would have been nice to have had cruise control and a built in GPS but the rental was absolutely positive.
SusanOctober 26, 2016

The car was just the size we needed. It was great to drive and appropriate in every way for our holiday. It was straightforward to hire and staff explained the insurance scheme clearly.

DavidMarch 22, 2016
Great car for 4 people with good luggage space.

We especially appreciated the car park attendant who realised our selected vehicle would struggle to hold our luggage and offered a larger vehicle which definitely made our whole holiday so much better. She deserves acknowledgement - lovely nature too.
