Cons:I don't like their services also the price is high
Pros:That my family was safe after vehicle malfunctioned
Cons:This branch Terminal 2 offered me a vehicle with poor maintenance. My family and I could have died on the highway when it malfunctioned. The staff couldnt care less about our situation and Mangosh even told me that ‘this is the Emirates, we are different, we dont offer the services you are asking for’. The team was deceitful and rude. I reported this branch to consumer protection services. If you dont want to die, avoid renting. I’ve contacted my credit card company to dispute payment to them. Kayak should not promote them.
Pros:I just liked the performance of the car.
Cons:The interior of the car was absolutley dirty!! Very small car. It didn’t fit all of our 3 luggages. The price we paid for this car was not worried at all.
