Europcar O.R. Tambo International Airport

We hadn't used Europcar in Johannesburg for a while, so decided to hire from their O.R. Tambo International Airport offices. It cost R1599 for a Volkswagen Polo for the weekend, with 1 additional driver & a car chair for our infant (which was a bit of a mission fetching & fitting). Instead of the Polo, to our delight Europcar gave us a Chevrolet Aveo, which has plentiful boot space as well as a spacious interior. Inside the car I was pleased to see that Europcar still stock mints, something which started in the Imperial Car Rental days.

The staff at Europcar Tambo were friendly and there was absolutely no queue. Our little one explored every nook & cranny of their offices, and they offered me coffee & gave me a free newspaper, whilst I waited for my partner (who was stocking up on food for our hungry sprogs). When I dropped off the car they were there to direct me where to park, fetched a trolley for us and most importantly, were friendly to us.

The Purple shall rule! "I travelled on an airline with my Grandson. To my shock his seat was broken. He had to sit all the way from Cape Town to Johannesburg (on a broken seat). When I asked were the seats not checked, all that the staff could do was apologize. When I returned to Cape Town, I sent an email to the company, & I received the same apology. I am a frequent flyer and I expected in some way to be compensated. Do they not care? Or was it because he was a little child? Either way he paid the full fare and had the discomfort of not being able to sit comfortably. So to all out there - cheap way is not always the best way". Pamela
