Countrywide Car Hire

Hello, we are French and travelling with our 10 years old’ child. We’re just coming back from Malawi and would like to warn you from a local car rental : COUNTRYWIDE CAR HIRE (p 189 of the 7th edition Malawi guide). Indeed, once we paid the déposit the wonderful car we were supposed to get had much changed ! It was replaced by the same car but …100 000km more, all mocked, broken screen, pop up lights…But, the worse was to come…when we return the car, after 15 days rental, they asked our swift code to refund the deposit, arguing the VISA electronic terminal was unviable. Until now, we are waiting for our money back !

    Rented from Countrywide for 8 days in June 2017. The booking process was done via email with Christina, all queries were promptly and professionally answered. Countrywide met us at KIA, booking in process was simple, as was the return process. On the 4th day our car developed a minor mechanical fault, we reported the fault to Christina at 16:30, by 07:30 the next day a replacement car was delivered to our hotel, 45 miles away from the Blantyre office. Excellent service!
    Our deposit was slightly more than the actual cost – the refund was in our bank within a few days. Excellent service.
    Would we rent from Countrywide again? Yes!
