Anonymous Port Elizabeth Airport 24 February 2017
Excellent boot space fo luggage. Engine slightly under powered.
Anonymous Johannesburg Airport 21 February 2017
Car was spotless. Rental desk was off-line which delayed the release of the car excessively. Counter assistant would initially not accept the voucher on my smartphone. Eventually her supervisor authorised the transaction.The second disappointment was the car's high mileage (41 000km) and an intrusive mechanical drone (diff whine?). But fine otherwise.
Keith Cape Town Airport 21 February 2017
easy car collection at CPT, drop off also straight forward Car was a Suzuki Ertiga made in India as opposed to the Nissan that I had ordered. No great problem except tat this car was very underpowered.
Anandhan Durban Airport 20 February 2017
Good service
Sharon Cape Town Airport 20 February 2017
No queues at the office, all very quick. Car was also ready and waiting. Nothing to comment on
Anonymous Cape Town Airport 20 February 2017
The cigarette lighter receptical was not working, which meant that the Garmin that we rented did not work after the battery expired.
Andrew George Airport 19 February 2017
Good, efficient car. Seemed like a downgrade as not as good as a Tiida. Engine reall oo small for a Cape Town return trip - needed a 6th gear.
Carmen Cape Town Airport 16 February 2017
We didn't have to wait long to pick up the car we hired. The staff members were all friendly and willing to help. The drop off was easy to locate and the staff was professional. Our third vehicle replacement was an upgrade and a much safer drive. We didn't get the car we wanted but were given a car in the same group. The first car had to be picked up due to a problem with the brakes. We took the replacement back as well as it too had a brake problem. The replacement for that was an upgrade.
Anonymous Cape Town Airport 15 February 2017
Car was new so no damage, staff very helpful. Auto gearbox was a bit primitive.
MALCOLM Johannesburg Airport 06 February 2017
Friendly staff. Car not quite up to usual standard. Only 4k from service. Window switch on passenger side faulty. Company very quick to take R3k deposit but not quick to refund at end of hire. This, however, is a problem with all SA rental companies. Last time it took a month.
