The automatic upgrade. The navigation system. We didn't know how to turn the navigation system off. Very annoying man talking whilst you are trying to listen to the radio. Not his fault we couldn't find it in the manual.

The car was excellent to drive & comfortable. When taking out of insurance on vehicle through car hire website it is unclear who you are dealing with &insuring with & from where. You think you are dealing with just the car hire Company only, but you aren't . We had to double up on insurance to be totally covered, which then increased the cost of hiring a car. This should be clearly stated on these sites .

The easy accessibility to thrifty counter in Townsville airport. Since petrol stations were very scare in Townsville perhaps a map given with paperwork when collecting car would have been handy. Overall every thing good.

weren't told where everything was in the car so experienced some trouble in the dark at petrol station finding out how to open tank.

Anonymous Townsville Airport 01 June 2015
The lady that served us was very pleasant and efficient. We waited so long to get served. The customer in front of us took so long. It would have been great if the lady just excused herself, asked if we had a booking gave us what we needed to fill in. She could have done with another person at the counter, just for when flight arrive if they have more than one booking. The car was a reasonable size, a bit squeezy for 3 adults in the back, especially the middle seat. We had trouble locating the rear middle seat belt.

ease of service with no complications. I presume all deposits have been refunded or released? I hoped I was renting a Nissan Tida but got a hyundai( which I understand is a class c equivalent). Nevertheless the car was great.

Condition of vehicle, easy to find. Return very easy.Free second driver option much appreciated. Insurance costs very high, rates should relate more to driver age, experience and license type.
