We used these people:




Had no issues at all, got a Mazda Demio, was a great car, tidy, cheap and did what we needed.


The people there are great, easy to deal with and can collect/dropoff to airport as well


Highly recommend them!

I've used a couple of budget jobbies over the years (Rent a dent, etc) and they're fine.




In saying that, I also discovered that you often pay little more to get some wheels with one of the bigger players - without having to meet some dude in a van after hiking (lol) through car parks for 27 minutes in 90% humidity... so whilst using the budget players is fine, check out the bigger players too and ALWAYS check the fine print your contract/s, especially around payment, excesses, kilometres, and insurance coverage.

They were very good to deal with. Make sure that you know if you are picking the car up at the airport or offsite as it can cost some significant time.
