Thanks for this.
We were both really impressed with the car and service , thanks heaps for an easy rental process.
You kindly left us with $3 to pay for parking on the Wednesday,  we didn't need this so we left it in the car.

Your rental vehicle was brilliant for the whole of our amazing holiday - thank you very much for supplying a motor of great reliability and hassle-free. We were all very comfortable and it cruised along smoothly at 100kmph. Returned to Christchurch on schedule. Many thanks and hopefully we will return another day to you beautiful country.

Thanks very much for the lovely service. I will recommend it to anyone going to New Zealand.
