THE RENTAL CAR PROCESS

I wish to acknowledge the assistance given during our rental, compliments of the staff regarding the standard of your vehicles and the attitude of yourself and your staff were very positive. Nothing was too much trouble.

This is the 3rdtime this year we have used your company at 3 different locations and I have to say we have been really impressed with the consistently high standard of staff and quality of rentals you provide. It was interesting to add that while we were waiting for our pick up Roger ambled over to a competitor counter to see what a little run about would cost for the day, try $120!!

Thank-you RaD Car Hire - every step of the process was easy, from your fast reply by email when I contacted you through your website, to the friendly service and the ultra-thrifty but utterly reliable car. Love the can-do attitude. You are definitely my car-hire company of choice.
