This is the 2nd time I have use Alpha and I have been so impressed with your service & fleet of cars and value for money was great.Angela , February 2013
I received great service when I picked up my vehicle from the airport with lots of awkward luggage to handle and also when I returned the car to the city office. The lady there was very helpful, even calling through to the road tolls people as I found the toll system confusing to deal with. In fact, I would recommend this as a standard procedure as the toll issue can leave a clients last memory of hiring with a negative quite undeserved by your well-run company.Thank you very much! I will certainly use your service again and recommend it to others.Louisa , February 2013
