Toyota Corolla
March 27, 2022

Pros: I didn't

Australia
Hyundai Accent
August 30, 2021

Pros: Nothing

Cons: After they cancelled the original booking i still needed a car after the lockdown. They have a sign out the front stating cheapest car rentals in NT guaranteed. This is bullshit as I've since priced other companies and they seem to be the dearest. The car they supplied was a small KIA when i requested a medium car and the girl at the counter said they didn't have another one. It was half full of fuel had no cruise control and the brakes made a terrible noise

Australia
Toyota Corolla
August 4, 2021

Pros: Quick and easy to hire car

Cons: $500 security deposit if I did not take up insurance. Car hire insurance is the biggest disincentive to car hire and the biggest rip off. No accountability for cost of repairs

Toyota Corolla
June 13, 2021

Cons: The Hyundai we hired looks like quite a new model but there's no reverse camera or sensor which makes parking and reversing a little stressful.

Australia
Nissan X-Trail
June 8, 2021

Pros: We got exactly what we needed in style of car. It was clean, easy to drive and a reasonable price. I like the amt of km (250/day)included in the price. It was an important point in deciding the car to hire. Doing all our arrangements - identification, licences and payment online was also to our advantage, leaving nothing to do on our arrival.

Cons: As we did all arrangements online, it was frustrating when my bankcard details would not go through in the time allocated. I must have tried 6 different times on different days with no success. I ended up phoning directly and giving my banking details over the phone.

Australia
Kia Picanto
May 24, 2021

Cons: Difficulty in making contact on arrival. We were unaware they closed at 4:00pm, our flight arrived later than scheduled, and although they did try to contact us, we were either still on plane or in the arrival/covid check in, and when I tried to return call, only got a message service; this was between 4:35 - 5:00. No return call. We ended up getting through to a central help area, and arranged to pick up car in the morning. Cost us 2 x Uber rides we should not had to.

Australia
Holden Commodore
May 21, 2021

Pros: Not much

Cons: Service, DROPOFF and access.

Australia

May 18, 2021

Pros: The price & it was easy to do online. The car was clean & in great condition. Drop off was easy.

Cons: Pick up after hours. Wasn’t easy to find the spot at Darwin Airport & hard to contact anyone on the phone number provided that could help. Ended up having to get airport staff to help.

Australia
Nissan X-Trail
February 18, 2021

Cons: There were multiple models for me to. Choose from. I chose a higher price model yet received a car even worse than the lower price model. When I asked for the difference to be refunded they told me no. Worse yet the people beside me ( a nearly 7 foot huge man and his wife) who had paid for an SUV - necessary in the NT and anywhere for a man that size- got a tiny little Yaris thing.. the after hours defect contract was a joke. They had 25 smudges and minor scratches.., how can I verify all that

Australia
Hyundai Accent
November 21, 2020

Pros: The staff were easy going, friendly and efficient. The car was ready with engine running and aircon on when we got to the office and paperwork was completed quickly but professionally.

Cons: The pickup location can be a little confusing. I’m not the most attentive person and had it in my head that the car would be available directly at the airport. Caused a moment of concern. Having said that, once I reread the entire contract I did find the bit about arrival instructions. Once that was sorted it all went perfectly. Maybe make it a little clearer, bold or larger print, that you need to make a phone call and then wait at the designated spot. Mind you, maybe it was just me.
