Really helpful staff, excellent car
Anonymous Geneva Airport 28 January 2019
Very easy On/Offs, very easy to find the places, nice and quick service. Changing a German car with a Japanese is a challenge for drivers since the entire logic of car interface and management was completely different, which took a lot of time to learn... I would prefer to stick to German or European Similars.

Fantastic staff - super polite and helpful. They kindly told us we could keep the car for 24 hours if we wanted Expensive - but that’s Switzerland!
Anonymous Geneva Train Station 12 August 2018
Everything was perfect except one thing....see other side. 1) I would have preferred the salesman to point out all defects and be there when we picked up the car. He gave us the keys and told us where to find it, didn’t even show us anything 2) when we dropped it off at the airport, the staff there found a small mark on the inside of the door which we didn’t notice in the beginning and didn’t cause it
Anonymous Zurich Airport 06 August 2018
The car was in a perfect condition. I got an upgrade without paying any additional fees. They have a nice bunch of people to look after you. The waiting at the counter and time taken to identify the car.

We are admired by the staff - amazing professionals. I had not driven a car with automatic speeds, a man of my staff explained in detail everything, helped me to change the navigation language and explained to me its settings. We did 2-3 laps in the parking lot together until I got used to driving the car.Thank you I have no comments

Free upgrade to a 4WD was a huge bonus as we were going into the mountains We were invited to pay extra for breakdown cover as we were crossing the border into France. We declined!
Anonymous Geneva Airport 20 March 2018
representative was very friendly when we picked the car up, the car was clean and tidy when we picked the car up. On return the representative was very quick sorting us out. The sheet showing the damage to the car was unclear. We were asked to move the car before we wee ready when we picked the car up, because there were to many cars about.
