Quick turnaround, will use them againPros: Short queue, nice person behind the desk and no high pressure up-sale which I would have refused anyway.Cons: The car was a little basic, but I didn't really expect much more for the low price I paid.

Friendly and helpful staffPros: I got bigger car than I booked but the staff went more than beyond to offer me other option to switch for smaller car. Returning car was also very easy process.
9.6 ExcellentMar 16 2018
English countryside tourPros: I was upgraded to a Hybrid car which was great as I was doing a lot of out of town travel as Gaza being already quite expensive in UK. This was a great advantage. Also the car had a GPS system which was great. The staff were very nice & helpful both at pick up & especially on return.Cons: The pick up was a little slower then anticipated. First you have to take a bus to the car which seems to be the same for all rental companies & I guess can’t be helped, but when we did get to the car lot it did take a little while till the car was ready. Staff were very not ce & apoligised, but that should be improved.
