Anonymous Johannesburg Airport 31 August 2017
The rental price was reasonable. The inspection of the vehicle was thoroughly done when it was returned but on collection of the vehicle it was not afforded any attention to point out any existing defects. In my case, there was some minor scratches on the car on collection and on return I had to justify these scratches. Not a good experience.

It was a lovely car a bit big for what I needed. The key did not open the passenger side door (It opened all the others). I banged my head on the boot a few times as it is especially low.

Linda Port Elizabeth Airport 28 August 2017
I left car lights on and locked the car. There was no emergency number on the kiosk.
