Rented Renault Scenic in: Azores Ponta Delgada Airport
All Azores Ponta Delgada Airport Reviews
Overall Experience : The prices are low in comparison with other car rental companies. However, they are still too high in comparison with e.g. Canary Islands or even with Lissabon.
Supplier Service: The stuff was exceptionally polite. The small problem in mismatching the prices was solved, so that I got a discount of ~80 Euro to the origibal price that was promised initially.
Car: Car was clean and technically Ok. I had no problems with it.
