"Very courteous, friendly person dealing with my transaction, he explained everything about my hire concisely and simply, the car was clean and as stated on contract highlighting minor scratches and scuffs. When returning the car the process was simple and fast. All this with the pandemic on! The price of the hire was cheaper than on comparison websites and I urge customers to book direct on Green Motions website for a reasonable price. This is my second hire with Green Motion and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Well done guys!"
