Hi there We just want to feed back to you that our experience with RaD was fantastic! We hired a car mid-September (at the last moment) and were treated to immediate friendly service, a car that’s in better shape than our own, and easy directions of where and how to leave it at the airport. Very impressed and would not hesitate to recommend to others! Regards, Happy Holiday Couple
