Car in perfect condition. Brand new car. Engine too small. You should be allowed to choose the power of the car. Therefore I had a 1.0L, 3pistons, 5 speed gearbox. Not my type.

Staff are always friendly and helpful. I got the choice of car When booking a 5 seater for 5 passengers I’d expect to get a car that can facilitate appropriate luggage for 5 people. Luckily we had others travelling by bus and they took the additional luggage that we couldn’t get in the car.

Nice new clean car. Good fuel economy if staying under 40mph. Model of Citroen was way too under powered, getting overtaken by lorries, bit of a safety issue to be honest not having the acceleration on hand to overtake safely. Fuel consumption thru the roof trying to get to motorway speeds and staying there.
