Very efficient drop off of the car at Nice Airport terminal 2. We arrived in terminal 1 and had to take the bus to terminal 2 to collect our car. This added 30 minutes to our collection time beyond getting to the desk.

Travels well and is comfortable with good air conditioning. There wasn't enough boot space to carry all our luggage/suitcases (4x people) as we are from overseas.

Anonymous Copenhagen Airport 18 July 2018
An excellent car, very clean and in very good condition inside and out. Staff at the counter were helpful and knowledgeable. We had to get a bus from the terminal to the car rental centre. With 2 young children and lots of bags, this is a big backward step for Copenhagen airport which is otherwise a very good venue.

Friendly Staff, great location, previous experience regarding the actual car was much better. car had 6+ major damages not mentioned on the form (a helpful representative adjusted the paperwork before we left). car was dirty, superficially cleaned. car had been smoked in by a previous user and smelled like cold cigarette smoke. front tires were as good as bold, we only noticed after arriving at our destination.
Anonymous Brisbane Domestic Airport 16 July 2018
The checking in and checking out process was easy. The car had obviously been cleaned in a hurry. The dashboard was dirty and the car mats had not been cleaned properly they still had bits of grass and dirt on them. The area I picked the car up from had quite poor lighting, so I didn’t notice until I drove out. It not a major thing but I thought it worth telling you

Great service from shuttle drivers and counter staff. A new employee was being trained at counter at check in, so it was slower, but we were fine with it and encouraged the learning. A vehicle we requested was not available, but the staff assessed our family and bags and got us into an SUV to fit us all.
