Staff helped a lot to provide perfect car seat and install it to the car. Thank you for the support ! During pick up, process was quite slow. The person making the registration of us was not able to undertsand our accent.

I am very satisfied with National. You get either the car you booked, exact make and model, or a car you prefer more.

Good car, no pushy sales for extra insurance. Easy pick up When we dropped the car off the branch of National had just shut. It was only 4pm and we had no idea that they would shut that early and that there was no way of handing the keys back after hours. Fortunately we were staying in a building next door to the branch so I was able to drop off the keys at 8am the next morning and everything was fine.

The car was fabulous almost brand new Difficulty finding where to pick up the car because the location has recently moved and the sat nab was picking up the old site.

Didn't like that we didn't get a jeep but the explorer was a good substitute. Also my husband picked up the rental and had paperwork and NZ licence and they would not rent the car to him so he had to go all the way back to the hotel and pick up his passport and go all the way back to pick up the rental. It was not stated on the booking form that ur passport was needed it said only valid driving licence. So thT was a little annoying but everything else great!!!

The National Staff in San Diego was amazing: friendly, helpful, happy, and a delight to do business with. They made our day all the better for having been part of it. And they made it so easy to collect our vehicle! Nothing . . .

Ease of use for both collection and return Car was a bit sluggish particularly up hill and slow to accelerate on the highway.

Great car, great service, very efficient and friendly staff - especially Tiffany at the drop off @ San Diego airport. Will definitely recommend "National" and use their services again. Best regards from Belgium

Choice of SUVs Friendly staff The transmitting on the SUV was such to that the vehicle revved very high before it changed gear. This probably caused more fuel to be spent than necessary, I'm not sure if the car had a minor fault or whether it's just the gear box
Anonymous San Diego Airport 02 February 2014
Everything went well, having a choice of vehicle was a bonus as we picked a 4 wheel drive and ran into some snow.
