Had a great experience renting from you. My friend rented from a different company and had a terrible time waiting in lines for his car. Both pick-up and drop-off were a breeze. Will be renting from you in the future.

The service from Nova was excellent. I rented vehicles from many rental companies in the past, but they cannot compare with the total dedication to customer satisfaction provided by your staff. I will surely recommend your Company to friends and will also use your Company in the future.
