No office in major city Brighton. Car was not supplied with Manual for instructions. Car insurance should be included at outset with quote as it is such a major component of the price.Reviewed 1 Jul 2024
review fromkayak
Most of the experience was excellent but felt like the original pick up experience was too pushy in trying to upsell us to spend money on things we didn't need. They know we've just landed from a long flight and are experiencing jet lag and it feels like they are trying to take advantage of you in that moment. Maybe that's just they're job but that part wasn't pleasant.Reviewed 10 Jun 2024
