Pros:I was collecyed promptly by a very friendly member of staff who ran through everything personally I felt very taken care of. The car was superb and fitted my needs perfectly.

Cons:Booked online and confirmed. Arrived to pick up the car and was told the car was not available. It upset all our plans being a saturday.
