We had a great experience with Edwige! The car ran very smoothly and was very fuel efficient. We experienced zero problems. Edwige was very kind to the two of us and allowed us to change our pick up day and time to fit our hectic schedule. We would definitely choose her car again if we ever needed to rent a car in London!

BMW 1 Series 2011

Firstly, Lovely, smooth easy to drive car. Was really comfortable and certainly great over the 500 miles i covered. Charles clearly takes great pride in his car and you can tell the moment you sit in it. Beautifully clean, better than new and Charles took extra time out of his Saturday afternoon to go through the car and ensure the hire was stress free. As well as that. Something that really surprised me and was appreciated was Charles offering support the entire time. I have hired many cars before and never has the owner been so proffesional and human. What was even nicer was that i shortly recieved a message following the return of the car hoping i enjoyed my trip. With London being a total nightmare owning and driving a car in. It's very good to know that with Charles you can have the luxury of driving a beautifully maintained car and not worry about the hassles. Will certainly be contacting Charles when business calls me away from town.

Tola is by far the best host I have found so far. Absolutely reliable, easy to communicate with and helpful should you need any information. He sends texts to check that everything is running smoothly at beginning, middle and end of each trip. The car is super cheap as it runs on diesel which cost me almost half of what I usually spend for the same trip. Totally recommended.

Much more flexible and better value than your average car rental! I hadn't realised that Avalon actually provides a delivery and pickup service for their rental cars - something they should definitely advertise! I was panicking about having to find the car in central London but in the end had a brand new car delivered to my door. My only issues were slight lack of communication and initially slow response to my messages, which had me close to cancelling my reservation. It also would have been helpful to know the required documents at the time of booking.
