The body of the car looked like it had been in a war zone - full of dents and scratches.

Geoffrey Durban Airport 07 January 2018
Pick up was easy, it took a little longer as we were slightly early and just getting all the documentation sorted. Drop Off was perfect, they inspected the car, signed it off and we were on our way. The monies were deposited a few days later into out account. When we went to pick up the vehicle, we were offered a smaller car than ordered, we showed them the paperwork and he gave us the same type of car we booked.

The car was still brand new and thus did not pose any technical problems. Colour of the car was just right for the occasion. Small engine size which meant less fuel consumption over longer distance. The body size of the car against the Durban winds made driving at higher speeds a challenge at times.

Joe Durban Airport 14 July 2017
Customer service was good I paid cash at toll booths. When I got back to Australia I got an email saying that I owed toll fees. I was not told how the toll works. This fee will be deducted from my deposit. I was told that I need to follow up with toll company myself. Not happy.
Mathilda Durban Airport 10 June 2017
Excellent! Nothing to complain.
Anonymous Durban Airport 09 June 2017
I left binoculars in the car and the attendant found and gave to me...In South Africa I wasn't expecting that!
Anonymous Durban Airport 07 June 2017
It wasn't made clear to us about the toll payments so we paid in cash for 3 tolls until a cashier told us we had a tag already in the car which we didn't know about. So we will be paying twice for this.

The car was fine, great aircon, bluetooth and comfort The time and paperwork it took to complete getting the car! The banking system was down and so everything was manual. It took over an hour!
Helen Durban Airport 30 December 2016
I didn't get the car I booked. The engine size of the car I got was too small. It was like driving a sewing machine.
Anonymous Durban Airport 10 November 2016
The previuos driver smoked in the car. I suggest that a sensor be put in the vehicles. If someone smokes fine them a hefty fine.

John Durban Airport 22 October 2015
The car was virtually brand new and was big enough to take our two cases in the boot, which is the main reason for choosing this category Took a long time to pick it up compared with a friend who used a different company in the office next door. They also changed their policy on a full to full petrol tank. They wanted to fill it up themselves when the car was returned. Hopefully they will not charge an excessive amount. But time will tell.

The friendliness and competence of staff. No complaints

It had a good boot space and it drove well. Just needed a sixth gear then the car would be perfect.
Andreas Durban Airport 30 July 2015
All good except the price The Car was a Chevrolet Spark lite but the older Modell for a price of R515 that is simply too much at Europcar you would get almost a C Class Mercedes

The willingness of the representative to solve an issue with the credit card payment My chip credit card was swiped instead of being inserted into the card machine. This caused a fraud block on my card.

Excellent service from staff. Highly recommend company
Anonymous Durban Airport 30 December 2014
Size of car (but only got a larger car as they didn't have our car available) Counter staff told us they would swap the car when our correct car became available but seemed to think we should pay for the petrol used when swap made and possibly be responsible for cleaning 2 cars (when it should have been the car rentals responsibility as it wasn't our decision to make a swap!) anyway, no swap was made in the end so encountered no further problems.

Car was very clean and tidy. Easy drop off in the middle of Cape Town. Car was not ready at scheduled time. We did not expect the bond to be deducted from our credit card - expected the amount to be held only.
