Car was efficient and staff member who spoke with me when returned did come out into carpark to check the car on my return as per my request As someone new to Nelson maybe some information of meter charges in the city would have been helpfull. I also had to ask for a map of the area

Very convenient to pick up and drop off the rental car The car I booked is Toyota Highlander, the reason I pick this one is because we need more space. The car we got is Santafy, not that much spaces.
Anonymous Auckland International Airport 17 October 2017
Smooth pickup both in Auckland airport and the second car in South Island in Picton. The second car picked up in picton on the South Island was severely scratched. Even so, only one dent was indicated on the damage sheet. We asked the staff to indicate it. They said it was regular wear and tear so it didn't need to be recorded, but the scratches were deep and Long and clearly visible.

Lorraine Christchurch Airport 17 October 2017
Staff very efficient to deal with. Perhaps a plan on where to locate the car would have been helpfull especially as it was raining at the time.
