Everything went very well. Only the registration took a while, because other than me others wanted to pick up a car. Pick up the car and the return itself was extremely fast and uncomplicated. Were then also driven to the nearby hotel. Perfect!

We waited almost an hour to recover our vehicle. Once the vehicle rented, the agency called us by mistake 2 days before the return of the vehicle, indicating that we had to make it a day. After a big stress shot and 15 minutes of calling (from abroad) to clarify the situation, we did not even apologize for the inconvenience.

Very good car, efficient return service. Big flat: a lot of waiting on our arrival (more than 10 people queuing to take the rented vehicle!). ONLY half of the "counters" open to welcome people. When you come from a long trip, you want more efficiency!

our experience with this supplier was good - collection was fast, nice car - even with navigation and 'low milage'. however, the car had a damage that was not marked on the supplier's parts ... not super. but we have included.

Bad experience. The provider took advantage of our lack of knowledge in English to sell us an insurance 2 times the price of the rental when we had specified that we were already insured. It's a shame. Despite our complaint, they did not want to know anything. I call it abuse of weakness.

Hire an entry-level Suzuki (example: no automatic door closing). Really cheap (€ 7 per day). Only downside: I came back from South Africa 2 weeks in advance because my Austrian Airlines return flight was canceled (Covid 19). No refund possible by First because it is Autoescape which negotiated with First, it is not me the customer. The reception First was not able to inform me. Perhaps you can inform me about the reimbursement of the 2 weeks? Thank you

Supported. We arrive 2 hours before the scheduled time ... no possibility to have your vehicle. After reflection yes you can have it but by paying an extra day ... I'm complaining ... nothing. We make the papers to save time and miracle the vehicle is there ... Return of the clean vehicle but with a little dust (normal after 1 month in South Africa ..): you have to pay for a cleaning of the vehicle.

A Ford Connect is offered. However, this vehicle is not in the fleet. The vehicle was used to transport 2 bicycles. This was very cumbersome in the replacement vehicle.
