My wife and I were in Cornwall in February and hired a car from Alan at AB Car Hire for three days. The price was very reasonable and they delivered the car to us on time even after we were forced to change our travel arrangements at the last moment. Due to the severe weather we decided to cancel the third day of the hire and Alan refunded the money without any quibbles and was also quite happy to arrange to collect the car from a different location to that originally agreed to. The car was a second hand Mazda and this was explained to us when it was delivered. We had no problems with the car and AB Car Hire could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Would absolutely recommend them.
We had broken down on the A30 late on a Saturday afternoon. Our vehicle had to be recovered back to London and the RAC were unable to get a rental car for us until the Monday morning -leaving us stranded without a car. Al the major rental companies in the area Of Newquay were either about to close for the rest of the weekend or couldn't help us. We found AB Car hire on Google and they couldn't have been more helpful - delivered a car to our hotel on the Sunday morning and then collected it on the Monday morning. Very good and personal service and nothing was a problem to them. Thank you AB!7
The service we received at such short notice when our car let us down was incredible. Alan accommodated our needs and delivered a car to us on a Sunday! Highly recommended and will certainly be using them again.
Great service, lovely people, thoroughly recommended
I hired a Mazda 2 Estate for three weeks from the very friendly staff, apparently this is classed as a family car. I was charged GDP 199 per week with an additional GDP 40 per week for the auto gearbox. So GDP 239 per week, I could have bought the car for less. Not sure where you would fit a family and luggage in a car this size. The car was 12 years old, bumper bars were held on with cable ties, air conditioner didn't work, triptronic auto gearbox was tired, the Sat Nav provided was old and continually led me astray. I didn't have enough confidence in the car to take it out of Cornwall. All in all NOT a happy experience. Be sure to know what you are getting and how much you are paying.
Excellent Service! We hired a car for a week, and would have no hesitation in recommending this family business to others. We were met at arrivals at Newquay airport. The admin was straightforward and we were shown to our car - it was an (automatic) renault scenic. When I expressed concern that we had never driven an automatic, Alan came with us on a spin around the airport car park - making sure we were both confident on the controls before leaving us to explore Cornwall. The car was great and we had no problems with it, and it had heaps of space for our luggage.
Reliable , good value and very helpful. I now use AB Car Hire whenever I need to rent a car in Cornwall. They make the whole process quick and easy. Great.
Great Experience with AB Hire. They met me at the station help in the handover of the car and gave some great local tips. Returning the car equally easy, allowing you to drop the car off at your departure location. Great local family business, will definately use again in the furture.
