Excellent but slow pick upPros:Car, cleanliness, ease of process. Overall car hire as it should be - no excess hard sell, just here’s your car and off you go. Return even simpler.Cons:Delay in picking up due to 1 person only dealing with all Budget and Avis rentals. Not his fault - he was very efficient and friendly but policy decision to employ only 1 person to cover all pickups for 2 companies.Reviewed 22 Jan 2019
