    I rented a Hyundai i20 which is relatively a small car. At the counter, I found out this car is not available and they gave me a Mitsubishi Pajero sport which was huge. To them, this was an upgrade for free but to me having a small suitcase and being on 3 day business trip, it was extremely difficult to drive in Melbourne in the rush hour and park the car. I wish I knew that they might not have a small car and then I would rent another car.

    I specifically chose a in-terminal location, we had to go from terminal 2 to terminal 1 and when we got there there wasn't anyone at the counter. We had to take all of our luggage and haul it to the Royal hotel where there was another counter and finally could get my car. Service at the counter was good and we ended up upgrading to a larger SUV. The returning area was poorly signaled and I actually had to go on foot to the return area to fetch someone to get my final return procedure

    It was incredibly difficult to find the car hire department at the Melbourne Airport upon landing. There are hardly any signs pointing you in the correct direction. Once we found the correct area, which is actually across the street from the baggage terminal, the pick up was easy. The car we had this time was a hyundai i3, but it wasn't well maintained and the driver's side seat had stains on it and the fabric was well worn in the entire car. We couldn't use the GPS or cruise control due to needing an SD card. The car used a ton of gas and didn't feel like the upgrade was worth it compared to the Mitsubishi Mirage I had driven the week before in Tasmania, which was new and awesome on gas with no bells and whistles to be disappointed with. Overall, I wouldn't spring for the extra money on my next vehicle hire. Don't be surprised when you rent the vehicle to get asked to pre-purchase gas at a discount upon return and spring for road side assistance.

    I was observing the staff who attended to me and the one next to me.. That customer was from the U. S as u had overheard the conversion.. And was treated way better than I was treated, maybe because of my name and race I suppose I could be wrong but since you ask for feedback I'm just providing it.i was as if I was talking to a robot that's how I felt. Nothing else. I'm from customer service even till now it's very important you make all customers irregardless of who they are must make them feel that they are all very important. Many thanks for asking me.
