Very pleased with the friendly service! We picked up the car from Auckland City and dropped the car off at the airport prior departing for Oz. When we dropped the car off we were asked if we filled the car up with petrol, which we didn't. The very friendly lady drove us to the petrol station so we could fill up and then dropped us off to the airport!!!! Nice touch!
