Brilliant service, we rang as instructed 15 mins before arriving at hotel; a gentleman was there waiting. He took photos of our car to check for damage, etc. before he took it, very friendly and efficient. On returning at 1.45 in the morning again rang as we picked up our luggage and the car was waiting for us. Again friendly service, just paid an extra £7.50 for an extra day as agreed. Car in good order. Would highly recommend.

On return from holiday the car had been used and the dashboard under passenger side was damaged. Reported it to staff at time, on the contact number and numerous emails - they are not interested in the slightest. Have refused all requests regarding a claim. Trading standards contacted but they are not complying with their requests either. Avoid this company and go to one that looks after your vehicle.

Worst ever service. Wish I had read other reviews first. Meet and Wait not Meet and Greet. Was advised after leaving customs with no bags to collect would be a 25 min wait. After 30 mins called to be told would be another 7 mins due to traffic. No apology just rude and aggressive. Won’t use again.
