Speedy response for a last minute booking I made. Vehicle was confirmed within 2 hours. Thank you!
Tyre pressure was not checked before I took delivery. It was low and vehicle handling was affected.

ValerieOctober 28, 2017
service was good but unfortunately the location was not good for a single lady
They at first did not want to hire the car out due to my age which was declared on the booking.
JuliOctober 28, 2017
The staff member who dealt with us was courteous, efficient and willing to please - really nice gentleman
There was nothing I did not like, but do find that the deposit is quite hefty
VuyoOctober 9, 2017
The car did serve the purpose in terms of space
The time taken to verify the token was not conducive
MehboobSeptember 27, 2017
Process is quite convenient and easy to use , although would prefer selecton of size of collidion waiver when booking. Collection process also fine.
We got a car with much smaller boot than selected so luggage had to be squashed.

Vehicle was on the older side 47000km plus
MoritzSeptember 26, 2017
I liked the helpfulness of the staff. I got stuck with a faulty battery out side of town on Sunday afternoon. Within 45 minutes of me calling the call centre I had a replacement car and was ready to go. I was kept up to date with the progress, I was called back, I was sorted out very quickly and effortlessly. What a pleasure to be valued!

BakangSeptember 8, 2017
Prompt response. Good vakue for money. Car was exactly how it was described on the website. Excellent service.
Documents were nit ready and collection took long but overall service was friendly. If i was on a business trip with time constraints this would have been an issue. Also the funds are still blocked on my credit card more than 4days after tje car was returned.
NokwandaSeptember 4, 2017
i liked how clean the car is and the lady at the rental desk who assisted me, she was very professional
the actual car i got, i would have never picked it.

I dropped off the car at 5am and there wasn't anyone in the office. No one called me to confirm they received the car and all is in order.
February 25, 2017
Hire car desk pretty convenient to luggage pick up and pretty efficient pick up.
They are pretty serious about having the car hire voucher in South Africa so make sure you have it!
February 25, 2017
Very nice car in good condition, car hire desk very close to terminal.
Quite a long walk back to the terminal, leave plenty of time!
February 25, 2017
Got a slightly bigger SUV than we were expecting which was much better fir luggage space.
Was quite a long winded pick up.
GarySeptember 20, 2016
Vehicle was just what I needed thank you.
Car was filthy inside, upholstery stank of stale smoke and animal. Cloth seating was badly stained and dirty. Aircon filters need replacing to remove the smell. Outside vehicle had lots of damage and scratches which should be repaired.
MokotediJuly 4, 2016
Car was not available by time of arrival. This means the fuel was not as full since the car had to be brought in from another branch. Car had park sensor problems
NosiphoApril 3, 2016
Because there was no one to receive the car so the drop off inspection was not done so I trust there won't be issues - I would have preferred inspection with thrifty representative.
AndreJanuary 31, 2015

DanieDecember 21, 2014
Thank you for an excellent service!
KristineJuly 20, 2014
Because our original request was not available at another rental, our references etc was not obtainable so we went unprepared yet the ladies working there were super helpful and so friendly that we left laughing and with big smiles. Especially to the welcoming desk lady...Wish I could remember her name. We loved the vehicle we rented. We were sad to say goodbye to it when we returned it.
The excessive charges on my credit card put a damper on my holiday as I was so limited. It was the only thing that annoyed and frustrated me.
July 19, 2014
Staff were friendly and helpful.
I was satisfied with the service rendered.
