"Thanks for the great service with the vans we recently hired. It was excellent that we could pick the vans up the day before, and return the day after, with no additional cost. We found your rates very competitive (which is why we used you), much better than Katikati buses, and Bethleham also, and a couple of other Tauranga companies. They served us well and made the trip do-able in terms of costs. Thank you, we will return! You even looked after my cell phone I left behind!"
Brent Willoughby, Waihi
"We liked the fact that the car was dropped off at and picked up from the airport and we didn't have to mess around going to and from rental offices. Having a fair rental for the baby seat was also a major consideration - some other companies charge rip-off prices for this. I found the service to be excellent and have no complaints. My wife got several online quotes and then we chose the most reasonable for our needs, so online pricing information is vital. If a company won't put its prices online I can only assume that they have something to hide and I am likely to move on to another company! I am sure we will be using your company again, when we next need a rental car."
David Hammer, Christchurch
"I was very happy with the ease of pick up and drop off at the cruise terminal and would definitely recommend the company to friends and family. I would also use again myself if visiting NZ again. The online process was quite easy and I received replies to my questions promptly."
