Because we want to make sure each review listed here is left by a real customer, we don’t have an option to post a review here. Instead, we ask each and every customer to leave a review after they return their rental car. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.

South Africa
Nissan Almera
March 28, 2024

Pros: Overall it was very friendly and efficient,

Cons: Nothing about the actual service - see comments.

United Kingdom
Toyota Corolla Cross
February 4, 2024

Cons: I was told I was getting an "upgrade" I never asked for one. I then ended up paying £100 more than originally quoted. As a customer I like to pay for what I ask for and not have additions added at the last minute, after a 12 hour flight. I'd have happily paid any extra charges, had I damaged the vehicle in any way, which I hadn't. This is probably more an industry problem rather than just pointing a finger at First but why not as your name suggests, be the"first" to stop scamming your customers?
