Took a while to

Took a while to get the car as was a queue at the rental desk and they seemed short staffed, but once on our way all was fine. Car was a bit older than expected, but no problem really.



Professionaly c

Professionaly car rental provider, you get what you pay for



Had a nightmare

Had a nightmare with Avis when we arrived. Basically, the car we booked was not available, they tried to fob me off with a cheaper car (Suzuki Swift) which was not big enough. After the manager got involved they finally found a car miraculously in the yard that was acceptable. Bigger than we booked so assume they didn't want to upgrade. Unecessary stress at the start of our holiday.

Most of the islands hotels are car hire friendly, many of whom can arrange pick-up and collection from the concierge in the lobby and virtually all have car park facilities.
