My personal experience of using Green Motion car hire was professional, positive and friendly from the first point of contact to returning the rental.

When I first called up for a price quote the gentlemen (Jon) offered a multiple choices of cars and options for me to consider. I feel that he provided the extra customer service to help me find an even cheaper option to what I was actually looking for, taking into account my personal circumstances too!! I was even able to swap cars :-)

I would 100% recommend Green Motion in (Central London), all the staff are friendly.

Thank you for a quick smooth transaction guys!! I'll be back soon matey!!

Why go green?

Hiring a green car means you get more miles from each tank of fuel. This equals fewer visits to the pumps and is better for the environment. It also means more money in your pocket for holiday cocktails!
