8.2Nice car hiring experience in Korea

Everything Avis did was great: Great car, new and in an excellent condition (got an upgrade because there was no inventory for the grade I reserved). Nice friendly staff especially when I returned the car, very efficient. They took pictures of the car's condition before giving to you so there would be no argument if there are any damages or scratches when you return. They didn't upsell car insurance. In fact they said the free one is the most popular choice and should be enough. I like my experience with them.

8.6A little surprise

Friendly and helpful staff messaged us one day in advance to advise us on the pick up arrangements from the airport and provided some updates on the current weather conditions. Free shuttle service picked up seven of us from Jeju International Airport and also back to airport when we are leaving Jeju.
