Hyundai Atos
February 27, 2024

Pros: Emraan Martin and Deidre Mentoor we the best proffesional that I have met in the this inductry. On day one my wheels were stolen. Emraan was in continious touch with me to sort the situation out and guide me through the process and got me a replacement there and then. Deidre did the paperwork in super sharp time. Emraan is an absolute asset to your company. i cannot thank him enough for his time and effort.

April 15, 2023

Pros: Extremely friendly and helpful. Picking up the car and dropping it off was easy and a great experience.

United States of America (USA)
Mercedes Benz C Class
April 7, 2023

Pros: BLUU did not fully recognize the contract with Discover. They failed to give us a Mercedes C class that was ordered, the rate quoted qualified for one class lower, an Audi A4. The deposit I paid in advance of $110 was not calculated into the final contract, I am now out of pocket $110 and I am requesting Discover to refund me. It took us one hour and a lot of acrimony to check-in. In the end, we had no choice but to accept BLUU’s interpretation of the Discover contract.

February 14, 2022

Cons: The final bill paid by me to Blu was R2681, whereas in the Discover quote R2658 was quoted ! The car was filled by me before drop off, so not sure why there was a small difference in the price. I have not been in touch with Blu to find out as it was a small amount, not worth my time to follow up.

South Africa
Kia Picanto
May 3, 2021

Cons: The key remote battery was flat & so it was a struggle to lock/unlock the car. I went back to airport rental agency to ask for a new remote or battery replacement & was told "no, its not possible, please use the key to open ". This however caused the central locking to be inactive, which was very inconvenient.

Ford Fiesta
January 4, 2018

Pros: Not much actually.

Cons: It took over an hour to pick up the car. Customer service reps would look up after finishing with a customer, see a long queue and simply walk away from the desk rather than helping the next person in line. There were only 6 people in front of me and it took this long despite there being 12 customer service reps. Awful. It's also a good thing I arrived back at the airport early to hand in the vehicle as it again took nearly 30 minutes. Bad experience
