Great value for money until it come to insurance cover and that is where they get you. The insurance cover for the 11days was ridiculous and way over the top.

They explain the facts and unlike some companies don't try/force you to buy inssurance as do some. No surprise charges. Have had a brand new car twice and moderately used one once. Avis would be my preferred rental company.

Not sure why, but hat 2 cars booked under my name. This caused confusion at the time of pick-up. Also, did not have any insurance cover. On checking my booking this was confirmed as correct. Very in unusual for me to take a hire car with out minimum insurance cover.
