Customers' Testimonials

"Hi, my family hired a car from your Sydney branch last Friday and returned it this afternoon. The same ladies were there both times - one was called Linda and I am not sure of the other lady's name. I just wanted to compliment them on their fantastic assistance at both our getting of the car and returning it. I was lost this afternoon and rang her up and I was directed back without any problems. Linda was never rude or rushed and even helped me to carry my bags to my cousin's waiting car. The ladies are assets to your company as is the man who collected us from the airport on Friday and waited so patiently whilst we waited for our baby seats to arrive. Thank you so much East Coast Car Rentals. We have had a very positive and non stressful experience." - Tammy Duncan

"We returned our car 4 days early due to the Cyclone Yasi heading for Cairns. Without any prompting, your staff immediately offered to credit the amount that could be used for another car rental within 12 months. We did not expect it as we were the ones that were staying in the path of the Cyclone, which may have meant losses of all descriptions. Thank you East Coast Rentals." - Bernie
