The Counter staff were very helpful and explained the T's and C's pretty well. Also liked the auto drop off and receipt.
It would have been good if an onsite check had been done together with the rep at the time of departure.

Staff very helpful
Extra charges as I do not own a credit card had to use my husband's which then ment he had to be a named driver also!! More costs!

The ease of collecting the car.
The car was parked in an open space which is not a problem except that as it was raining a proper inspection could not be undertaken.

Gentleman behind the counter at the Rental office was very friendly, helpful, and pleasant to talk to. He's the reason this is the second time I've rented from you and why I will 100% be renting from you again if I need to in the future.

Car age and condition very good . Staff very good.
I booked a Corsa because I am 6ft tall and need the leg room. Unfortunately I was given a vw Polo. Though a nice car , it was a job for me to get my legs in and uncomfortable for me to drive. I was disappointed thee was no other car available for me to make a choice. It was a case of this IS your car, it's the only one we have here in your class.

Very efficient once we finally got to the desk, car in excellent condition, very easy to locate the desk and the car and very friendly and helpful staff.
There were 2 members of staff serving Avis and Budget. Although both extremely friendly, polite and helpful, one was so helpful and friendly that the time efficient processing of the clients came second and the other desk was processing up to 4 different clients for each one of the other desk. Not very efficient.

Lovely, helpful, friendly, efficient staff. Super little car - spotlessly clean, was to drive. Great pick up and drop off times. Good location.
Can we have some cars left at the Red Jet Ferry Terminal please?!! That would be perfect then and save having to get bus and train to the Airport!!
