Omar was right on time for a drop off and pick up. He informed me on some things I should know before driving the car, and was great to communicate with. He is very helpful, and replies very fast if you have any questions. I’d recommend him for any of your next car rental!

John and Best Car For You have made the pickup and return process quite easy. I heard back from them within five minutes of my booking and my request for extension. They also clearly communicated with me the terms of the rental and return.

Anne
Ford Focus 2012
It was an okay, you-get-what-you-pay-for kind of rental, the inside did not smell great due to age. I didn't reach out to communicate that issue, and I'm sure if I had that they would have responded and helped me out. The couple of times I did contact them with a question, they were fast to respond, So, I'm not giving them lower than 5 stars because I didn't give them a chance to correct the issue. The car worked, it got me to work and back, and it was very cheap.
Anne B. - September 15, 2018
Yilkal

Mohammed
Toyota Prius 2006
In my fair opinion : Disadvantages are relatively small (seating area & boot) poor inside and old not prestigious car. Advantages are relatively cheap fuel (if compared with normal petrol cars), newly black painted (no scratches), easy comfortable driving, and above all SAYED is really great kind man and absolutely recommend dealing with.
