“We originally booked the "path finder" for 20 days. Unfortunately we need to start our journey with an other car (Toyota Hiace) due to a repair of the path finder caused by an accident of the former hirer. The Toyota was a petrol runed car, so we need to considered higher travel expenses for our first week of approximately 200NZD :-( I would appreciate if you can made a discount to our full rental payment!”

“The air conditioner may need re-gassing, as it struggled with temperatures over 20C. The radio did not pick up any stations, and there were no instructions as to how to tune in the stations.”

“The camper van was very tired although clean and had all that you required. We kept being told we had a brake light out so unsure if this was checked before we picked it up. It did the job but for expensive for what it was. ”
