Hard to express just how delighted I am to have found Indogocarhire to arrange our car hire.
Living in France and not having a credit card, trying to book directly through the various car hire companies was extremely frustrating.
Matt was so patient, polite and helpful, answering every query within minutes, explaining everything clearly - and getting us a far lower price than those quoted if booking direct through any of the companies.
Would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a straightforward, helpful company and would use again without hesitation.
Excellent service. Thank you.
