My dad visited from the States last weekend and while he was driving my uncle and I out to dinner Friday night (in an Avis car of course!), the conversation turned to a critique of the various cars they had both rented (these conversations tend to happen when you put two frequent renters with an employee of Avis!).
It seems that this time, my dad struck gold with his rental. He got the new Ford Mondeo, the car that was declared Car of the Year for 2007 by Auto Express. Meanwhile, my uncle was telling us how pleasantly surprised he was with the SEAT Leon he recently rented (he also lives in California so I’m not sure he really knew what to expect!).
This got me thinking. Unless you book one of our Select Series cars, you never really know what you are going to get. While I’d argue that all of the cars on our fleet are of a high standard, there will always be some cars that you would be particularly excited (and hopeful) about getting. So I’d love to hear about your favourites. Which cars made you rub your hands in glee when the rental agent handed over the keys? Which cars were you pleasantly surprised with having taken it for a spin on the road? This is your chance to give our suppliers any praise they deserve… plus I think it would be a bit of fun!
