Customer Feedback

"Great service arrived at airport prompt on phoning. Car was clean and ready for delivery. The direction on return were easy to follow. We would recommend this company well in front of the major car rental companies. We were staying at a airport hotel and arranged transport to it. Sorry, we could not tip the driver as we had no cash. Fantastic service, we will recommend to friends."
