You are on top of the list for car rentals when we visit Australia next time. Special thanks to the female staff member who served us, the fellow who inspected the van, and the driver who gave us a ride to the airport. They were all professional and expert in their job. Thank you for your wonderful service. The price quoted on the Internet when we searched for the van was accurate and was delivered as it was promised with no hidden fees or surprises. The vehicle was in a great shape. The person on the phone was very professional, courteous and very polite. She did a great job in convincing us to go ahead with the rental. We already had three offers from three different car rentals in Melbourne. However, after our telephone call, we felt very comfortable and felt confident to go ahead with East Coast Car Rentals in Melbourne." - Frazer Roland
