10.0 Excellent17 Jan 2017
67 USD per day and had to deposit cash $2000 USDPros: Staff were slow. It took one hour to process my rental. I was pleased to getting my 2000 USD cash depisit as soon as I returned their vehicle. Their fleet is new and fully insured, but body scratches due to nengligence are paid out of pocket.

6.0 Good2 Sep 2019
Pros: Great staff. Car was readyCons: Smelled like smoke. $60/ day (including VAT) for a definitively used car seems expensive. South Africa rates are more in line with value for money.
