Our flight was delayed by about 5 hours and we had no way of contacting the company of our late arrival. Naturally we were a bit worried whether our booking would still be in place when we eventually arrive. It was. The paperwork was ready to go and we were in our rented car and on our way within 15 minutes of arrival. The quality of the car was much better than we expected as well. Very clean.
