‘Thank you Swale Council! The closest car club was Gillingham, Maidstone or Canterbury so this new scheme is very convenient. The car I hired, the white Corolla, was perfect. It had a full tank, was clean, and was a good vehicle to drive. Instant booking, instant confirmation and the booking was fuss free and completed without any issue. I’ll be using again. Maybe you could add more vehicles in future?’’ from Richard John B.
