    I went thru 4 tolls in the car and my govia work for only 3 which i didnt realise. in turn they got sent a bill from GOVIA for the toll and admin fees which totalled 10.96. Abel then proceeded to charge me an extra $55 on top of that for their own admin fees ( ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS). When we rang i about the bill we got sent i had paid the 10.96 already and they didnt care we had to pay it no matter what as thats their policy, no compassion, we can prove that we went thru the other times it was just unlucky that it didnt work that one time but they dont care. they have now taken the whole 65.96 out of me credit card so have also now double charged a portion of this. Will take my business elsewhere and make sure everyone i know does too

    NOT a good experience! When we originally booked all itinerary was sent through and the next day they rang back and informed us that there where more additional costs that THEY forgot to mention after already sending through confirmation on prices. Then when we picked up the truck the fuel gage was NOT on full (which they were aware of) and when we returned it we filled it right up so I mentioned that and the person says "you didn't have to do that" oh yeah and if it had less fuel in it than when I got it I bet it would have been a different story... Don't worry I'll just measure it out next time. But no compensation was offered!!! lacking in customer service I think!! and we will not be using again!!

    I placed an order online for a car for the 26th of december with the Browns Plains site as where i was staying was only 5 mins away. They then called me to say that they have moved my booking to Beenleigh which is at least 20-30mins away from the house. On the day we caught a taxi out to Beenleigh only to discover the site was closed. none of the numbers answered and went directly to an IP voice mail. so we had to get another taxi and decided to go see if browns plains one was opened and NO it was not open. This was a complete waste of time and waste of money, I had to fork out over $100 to get to beenleight only to discover it was closed. NO one called me to advise they only called to say it had moved sites. DO you not check your invoices and the dates your customer's want cars. this was a complete waste of time and money and i will never hire from you again and will spread the word! not a great first customer experience at all!!

    The service was really great and the truck was really easy to drive. Jumped online and booked and confirmed through there, got the $99 deal which was great for me. And being a Sunday, open good hours especially working during the week it was handy to do it on the weekend, the service and value was great. Id give Abel 4 and a half out of 5.

    Great service from Call Centre only to be let down by incompetence at the pick up location. Undisclosed charges and what seemed to be a complete lack of interest in the customers interests. Will never use this service again

    I was very satisfied with the service from Abel Browns Plains. I needed a rental while my car was being repaired after an accident, and the smash repairers couldn't tell me how long it would take. I booked initially for 1 week, but the Abel staff were happy to assist me when I asked to extended it for a week and again for a further week, for the same online rate of $29/day.

    I was concerned by some reports I found on the Internet that Abel would claim for damage and marks that were there prior to pick up. The car I picked up did have a small ding on the bonnet when I got it, but this was noted in the condition report and I didn't have a problem when I returned it.

    Also when I picked up the car it only had 3/4 tank of fuel, but this was noticed by the staff member. He said it might be a faulty fuel gauge, and that when I returned it I should fill it up. However when I filled the car the gauge read full, I mentioned this to the staff and they said it would be OK to return it with 3/4 tank. I was so happy with the service I filled the car full before returning it anyway.
