The best company I have used for a long time. Very good service. The fuel station at Manchester Airport has been demolished and I spent a lot of time trying to locate another one. I feel I should have been told about this because I always fill up my hire cars there!

Really great friendly helpful staff
David Manchester Downtown 20 November 2017
The staff, particularly outside, at collection and drop-off were helpful, friendly, and customer orientated. The counter staff also apologised for the delay. As a frequent renter (with Budget and other companies) I don't need someone to electronically highlight in the agreement the key points. I can read. This, and posing personal questions regarding my use of the vehicle, is unnecessary and wastes time. I am very interested in a swift service, as renting a car is meant to be a time-saving activity.
