DanielJune 28, 2017
Fastest at the counter in a long time. Upgrade was nice bonus.
The cabin had definitely been smoked in by previous users.
OliverJune 27, 2017
Spacious and by and large met my requirements
the brakes were snatchy and I didn't like the hand brake. The big wing mirror made it hard to judge the position of the car when turning right. There were a lot of scratch marks and chips on what seemed a newish car. Perhaps a reality of driving in Cape Town
SalomonJune 26, 2017

The almera is underpowered

Car was previously used by a smoker and stale smell was evident, model of car bonnet has design fault which means it moves when you drive and appears open.
ManishApril 27, 2017
It was very easy renting a car - as I did it for 1st time.
Yet to get their final bill (if they charge anything hidden) - so hard to say. Hoping for no-surprise.
MichaelApril 24, 2017

ChristiaanMarch 14, 2017
when returning the car was really helpfull and dropped us off with all our luggage at the departure gate....
car was not that clean on collection and very badly scratched all over.... the border letter was not ready as requested before collection so took very Long and a lot of additional charges which was unexpected and make it much more expensive then the orginal qoute
RonaldMarch 13, 2017
The car went well and provided us with the best size option for the amount of luggage we had.
The upgrade for an additional day rent was quite expensive.

The engine of the car was a little too weak for four adults with luggage.
