Wonderful customer service, took the time to chat about, whilst completing the car hire documents due to a delay of one driver. Very happy and friendly. Cheaper to book via Rental.com than via the Car Hire companies.

The return at the airport was quicm and hassel free The car had various paint scratches and was not cleaned fully after use on an unsealed road. Some of the damage was incorrectly listed on the condition report requiring a return to the desk to correct. There were dusty surfaces inside the car and the panels inside the door frame were very dirty.

The car was clean, in very good condition, easy to drive and gave me no problems. I wasn't shown to the car and explained it's features. I didn't even know how to adjust the seat or turn on the lights. When I took it back I wasn't taken to the car to check that it was okay. The account wasn't explained to me and I still don't know if I'm getting my deposit back as a result.

Very good experience. The car had many useful extras, such as adaptive cruse control, parking sensors, lane depart assist. Good value. Nothing worth mentioning.

Friendly helpful staff, cleanliness of the car and ease of pick up. Minor dents and defects were not on the rental agreement prior to pickup. This caused delays in us having to assess the vehicle, get the staff member to view and mark off on the agreement. Also the fan belt was not adjusted properly and squealed on start up.
