The importance of our client's opinion and their authentic reviews which you may find below are what may help you to make the right choice for your car rental:
We choosed Opel Insigna and we receved Seat Toledo. Absolutly not the same leage....
The car made terrible and unreasonable noise from its roof_ probably due to the carrier that was installed on top of it. It was a nightmare rising out of town for long rides_ especially when I got to 80 kph and above.
Things were easy with this company_ car was as expected and booked_ pretty satisfied!
