Actual pick up was relatively smooth. Not sure whether I like the pick up full, pay for a tank of petrol on hiring and then drop off empty. Can't check because I was just charged a total amount. No idea what price per litre was charged and it is almost impossible to return with a completely empty tank. Hence the hire company are in a win win situation. No users manual in the car so could not even see what the volume of the petrol tank was or for that matter how to handle the car in general.
Have never driven a Fiat Punto before but it was very sluggish through the gears but did maintain a good cruising speed on the motorways. Do not know if this is normal with this car or if it is doctored al all by the hiring company. If that it its normal perfomance will not rush out to buy one.
Otherwise pleased with most other aspects of the hire and for a small car it had plenty of boot space. We were able to put 1 large and 2 smaller cases in the boot.
