Very efficient service once more. Returning the car was easy (no queues this time thankfully). I am a regular Nova customer and will continue to be one.

Just a note to let you know the car rental was perfect. The Europe Car staff were very professional helpful and friendly and the vehicle exactly as promised. Will be very happy to do business again.

Nova Car Hire is a no fuss agent. Was so easy to hire a car from them. We wanted a car over a Bank holiday weekend and Nova had one when all the other companies we contacted could not give us a car. Thanks. Car was in great condition and drives well.
