Car and parking location Long wait to pick up the car. Too many person and few desks

Friendly staff. Convenient location of rental company. Easy parking while dropping the car off. Misunderstanding while picking up - I was given prepaid full tank by accident despite I didn't want this option. The money was refunded after I returned the car with full tank though...

Despite a very delayed flight, the guy stayed open until gone midnight and gave us an excellent upgrade. Fantastic customer service. Long walk to find the desk.

Renting a car in the Uk and Europe is problematic, however in this case it went very smoothly, thank you.
Anonymous Edinburgh Airport 12 April 2018
Helpful Counter staff. I did not like the upgrade car, I would like to have the car I have hired in the first Place.

Loved the upgrade 1) Car smelt of cigarettes 2) Fuel dropped below full immediately after leaving the airport. 3) car was dirty with mud on the outside

Friendly service and informative Difficult to return. Signs for return were not clearly visible in advance. Had to weave around and actually go through departure drop off and ended up having to pay to exit the area to then drop car off. Very confusing.

Friendliness of staff It took much longer time than expected to drive off with the car. Car was iced over. It took around 20 minutes to defrost and there was no de-icer only hand scraper.

Fantastic location. The Vehicle was presented to me in a dirty condition, as this was a premium Vehicle I would have expected it to be clean upon collection.
Anonymous Edinburgh Airport 30 September 2017
Although I did not get the car I requested, I was offered a good alternative. Bit slow picking up.

Nice staff. Nice rental. Apparently good company willing to provide a service to customers.
Sally Edinburgh Airport 25 September 2017
The choice available from the pick up point we selected was excellent. Edinburgh is a small airport so everything was within a close proximity and very easy to locate. It took a long time to collect the car as there was only one desk open and an obvious 'issue' ahead of us. However, we weren't in a hurry so was ok on this occasion. The man at the desk was great but must speak slower when talking through the jargon, it may be familiar to him but it isn't to everyone.

The information about which gas to use and to use only caused an immense time of inconvenience and took too much time to follow. I wish I would have been given better information on this. It was a real drag to find gas stations in the Highlands with ultimate unleaded fuel.
Anonymous Edinburgh Airport 28 August 2017
Good family car with GPS on board. Clean and comfortable. The fact that we left the car very early in the morning (5.00am), and there was nobody at the rental office, no one could asses that there was no damage to the car. What if after we left, someone parked their car and bumped or scratched our rental. You wouldn't know and charge us for the damage.
Per Edinburgh Airport 27 August 2017
The car was clean, but larger than I ordered. In Scotland highlands the road are narrow and turns are plenty but a straight road is quite few. I know that, so I wanted a small car, with manuell shift. I got an automatic instead, my car was not yet awailable?? The service was good. Apart for the fact that I did not get the car I ordered.

The garmin sat nav device did not charge at all in the cigarette lighter charge. Very dissappointing as we had paid for this as part of our rental agreement. Also we had to use our phones and this drew heavily on our phone batteries for the rest of the days of travelling.
