What Our Customers Have To Say
Very easy and pleasant to deal with. Car was what we expected. No problems what so ever.Wayne , November 2012
Service was excellent. The nissan micra we hired was clean and tidy and enabled us to have a holiday on our own schedule rather than worrying about bus time tables. Would definitely recommend Alpha car hire to others. Added bonus that no excess is loaded on your credit card which a lot of other hire companies insist on.Rob , November 2012
We were so lucky - as long term repeat customers we were given an upgrade to an x-trail That had only 9km on the clock. As there were 4 adults (2 with golf clubs) this was wonderfully convenient.Heather , November 2012
