We planned three weeks driving from Chicago to Santa Barbara California to a family wedding on Route 66. This meant arriving in Chicago, picking up a car and immediately driving to Downtown Chicago to the hotel. Impossible without a satnav. Zintech preprogrammed the satnav with every hotel destination on our trip, sent the device out early to us so that we could familiarize ourselves with it and generally made the whole process easy. Moving off the route to look at side attractions of... (read more)

I hired a US version of the Tom Tom sat nav from Zintech for a recent family fly/drive holiday to california, having found their service whilst searching on the internet. I used their online booking form and when it came to payment (which I have to admit is extremely reasonable) my work computer firewall would not allow verification of payment. I phoned Zintech and explained this and my payment was actioned on the spot very efficiently and professionally. The Sat Nav arrived on the day... (read more)

I rented a satnav from Zintech for a recent extended stay in South Africa, having come across them on the internet and initially been a bit skeptical (I was ultimately convinced by all the reviews). What a lucky discovery it was! Not only were rates reasonable (had I hired a Satnav from car hire companies just for the time I needed it, which was a fraction of my total rental time from Zintech, I would have spent at least double) but I was really impressed by the customer service. I extended... (read more)

I used the satnav during our holiday in South Africa, travelling on the Garden Route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. It was invaluable when we had to make one long journey in the dark. The mapping was up to date and allowed the passenger to see the scenery without any detailed map reading.The instructions allowed you to position yourself early as you approached junctions. We switched it on at the airport and within seconds we had a position and route.As we became more familiar with the... (read more)

I had hire a Sat/Nav from a one of the popular car hire companies “Avis” 3 months before our trip to Malaysian. And 2 days before we left for Singapore they called me to say there would not be a Sat/Nav available. That nearly made us cancel the trip but then Zintech came to rescue. And as they said it will be delivered the very next day before 1pm and sure as it did. The Sat/Nav worked perfect throughout our time in Singapore and Malaysian. Top marks Zintech your service was excellent... (read more)

Excellent service. The SatNav arrived exactly as promised in good working order. Switching on having arrived in Johannesburg it worked flawlessly (with the most up to date maps given all the recent road development in SA) for 21 days even covering the Kruger wildlife park and all the sand roads! Fantastic and well recommended. (read more)

Zintech were about £20 more expensive to hire 4 sat navs for a weekend that one of their peers. So I went for the cheaper option. What a mistake! The other company had promised programmable sat nav's to add a pre-planned route. When they arrived I could not work out how to program them. I rang the firm who had sent them, and they also could not tell me how to program them. They asked me to ring the manufacturer who told me the sat nav's were not programmable. The hire firm then admitted... (read more)

Hiring a sat nav cannot be any easier or more pleasant!!! I booked a 3 week hire of a sat nav unit last August and unfortunately had to cancel my holiday with just 2 days notice before I left. I emailed Zintech and a guy called Matt Satchell replied saying that unfortunately I could not receive my money back, but if I travelled anywhere else within the next 12 months then I could have another sat nav at no extra charge. Happily I am able to take my trip this year and true to his word Matt... (read more)

I have hired from Zintech twice so far and on both occasions the TomTom arrived on time. The device was very easy to use and was a total lifesaver during long journeys to Devon and Bath, and also whilst driving through central London. Zintech make it exceptionally easy to hire and return items, and their equipment is modern and in excellent condition. I'm sure I will hire from Zintech plenty more times in the future. (read more)

I cannot fault Zintech service - the TomTom satnav arrived as stated by Zintech and returning the equipment was very straight forward.
Use of the Tomtom in South Africa saved a lot of map reading stress and by entering longtitude and latitude coordinates for the lodge in the game reserve, it got us there with hesistation or deviation.
Would highly recommend.

Couldn't have done without the Sat Nav whilst driving round the Alps - it was a real blessing!
Half the price of the Sat Nav from the car hire company and in English. No problem when driving over the borders in Europe, only downside was that it doesn't notify you of seasonal road closures. (Lack of this info meant a 300k round trip!)
All in all, I would definitely recommend! (read more)

My purpose in writing is to say a sincere thank you for your prompt and efficient service. The unit arrived exactly on time with clear and concise instructions and worked perfectly. It was so much cheaper than renting a unit alongside the car hire. I will definitely be using you again and will be recommending you to my friends.
Thank you again
With kind regards

No car rentals in Portugal provided me with a Nav Sat and when I saw this company on the Internet I couldn't believe it to be true.
The guys are just amazing (they phoned me back as a reply to an e-mail) and the day after I had my sat nav at work.
The equipment was perfect, well kept, and the best part is: I asked a question at 9PM by email, and the answer was there 8 minutes later.

I booked the Sat Nav over the internet from Australia - I was a little concerned doing this from so far away but I had no reason to worry everything went to plan beautifully.

In a word `Lifesaver`! Hired a GPS for a trip to Europe - the journey was hassle free, and opened up new opportunities for us to explore further than we would have if we had to rely on road maps. Found Zintech online and called same day, staff where really helpfull, polite and service was first class...basically it did everything it said on the box and more!

We investigated various options for hiring/aquiring a sat nav for our tour in Scotland and found your service was by far the best value.

It was very pleasing to find the sat nav waiting for us when we arrived. The instructions with it were easy to follow and helpful. (read more)

Hired a Sat Nav for use in South Africa. It was a very wise decision to do so given the road system, especially in Jo'burg. The more we used it, the more functions we found out about. The service from Zintech was first class with the Sat Nav arriving on the correct day and Zintech confirming safe reciept of its return. In total we drove almost 3,000km in two weeks and the Sat Nav no doubt saved us countless time as without it, we'd have been lost so many times.

WOW, I can't quite believe I'm writing this review even before I've used the Sat Nav - but it's true.

I'll write a more comprehensive review next week - so far, so (very) good.
