Re: Car hire from Newquay airport with Cornwall Car Hire.

I have to fly to and fro to Cornwall regularly and have been using Cornwall Car hire since discovering them about three years age when I got fed up with high charges and impersonal service from the international carhire firms with offices in Newquay Airport.

I can honestly say I've found them cheaper, far friendlier and more flexible and generally better to deal with than the big operators - and I have never been charged any extras.

They are happy to do the booking over the phone instead of insisting that you fill in a complicated email booking form and they turn up to meet your plane with a car when they say they will. The cars are clean and they work fine, no problems so far with any breakdowns etc. If you don't mind a slightly older model you can ask if they've got any used cars available - if they have, they charge lower insurance excess rates on these.

They don't stress about requests to change booking times. I have twice had to change the date of my arrival or return and all it took was a quick phone call and a cheerful "not a problem."

If you like dealing with friendly local people instead of huge branded corporations, this little firm is a winner (and I've just booked them again for a week in August so I'm putting my money where my mouth is.)

Just to be clear: The firm I'm talking about is this one: www.cornwallcarhire.co.uk, email info@cornwallcarhire.co.uk, tel 01637 850971

From the postings I've seen, I wouldn't touch Cornwall Car Hire with a barge pole.
