Ary is very friendly and flexible. He agreed to meet to rent the car to me at 9:30 at night, and took it to a carwash then to get the dust off. The car was great. I'd definitely recommend renting from him.

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.
