Greetings from New Zealand

Hi Matt

Just an email to say a big thank you for the service from you and your crew at Indigo and also with Budget.

Everything work out so well and the attention we got when picking up the vehicle in Ipswich was great, everything explained so well.

Also dropping it off at Glasgow airport (in the pouring rain) worked out so well too.

We dropped it off a day or so early as our hosts in Glasgow were able to transport us around.

The vehicle was a dream to drive, economical and just what we needed.

Richard & Diane had lent me a SatNav so we never got lost!!!!

But a big thank you once again.

Best regards Ross
