Friendly staff, easy to do business with. We received a new Renault Clio with only 500km on the clock. The fuel gauge did not work nor did the lighter plug to charge the GPS. We fully fuelled the car before delivering it back. The fuel gauge still showed 50% full.

There were too few staff at the rental counter, which meant that I had to stand and wait at least ten minutes, although there was only one person ahead of me. I would hate to think what would happen if we were more customers.
